Frozen, the Homosexual Agenda and the New Satanic Panic

Categories: Film and TV

By now it's all over the Internet about how Kathryn Skaggs, who blogs at A Well-Behaved Mormon Woman, believes that Disney's Frozen and in particular the song "Let it Go" is a clear attempt by Hollywood liberals to normalize same sex relations and secretly indoctrinate your children. Her logic, if I may gang redefine the term on a pinball machine, is that Elsa's cryokinetic powers are an allegory for hidden lesbian feelings that she grows to accept and force her subjects at large to accept. Her initial disapproval of Anna's desire to marry Prince Hans was not due to her worry over Anna's impulsiveness and Hans' possible suspect motives (Which turned out to be, you know, 100 percent accurate), but was instead a symbolic denouncement of traditional marriage itself.

I have no desire to sit here and debunk line by line of Skaggs' looooong and rambling post on the subject. Worrying that universal feelings like the euphoria that comes from escaping emotional repression are some how homosexual bio-weapons bent on infecting the youth of today just goes to show you how tight some people feel the need to grip their children and grandchildren's life options.

And hey, Disney totally does slip in positive gay roles in the cracks of movies. Or at least Pixar does sometimes. If you've never looked through the special features on The Incredibles the National Supers Agency files clearly show that Thunderhead raises adopted kids with his "roommate" Scott. Merida from Brave was also accused of being gay for her unprecedented rejection of Disney princess culture's hyper-elevation of heterosexual love into the realm of the magical. Mostly that was just mainstream media screwing around, though.

No, what I'm more interested in is what looks to me like the newest incarnation of American Satanic hysteria invoked by Skaggs' attitude.

To recap, in the '80s and '90s there was something called the repressed memory movement. The idea was that certain traumatic occurrences in childhood were so bad that your mind literally hid them away and you utterly forgot about them until retrieved by a psychiatrist using hypnosis.

As a trained clinical hypnotist myself I can tell you there's a grain of truth to this. It's called abreaction, and it occurs when repressed emotions bubble to the surface making the patient feel past incidents of terror, fear, sadness, and other negative feelings very keenly. It's not whole memories, more like an emotional déjà vu.

What actually happened when therapists went looking for repressed memories was that people's memories would conform to the therapist's expectation. If the therapist thought that maybe a parent had sexually molested a child, if he pursued the line of questioning hard enough the patient's mind would eventually invent a memory of the abuse. It's the same phenomenon that has law enforcement dealing with so many people confessing to crimes they didn't commit under interrogation.

What also arose out of the movement was the discovery of hidden pockets of Satanic abuse, mostly in daycares. Once again, therapists (Often with eyes on book deals) would question children and receive horrific stories of black masses, molestations, and other macabre fan fic happening all throughout America's day cares. Meanwhile, Jay's Journal, which was supposed to be the recovered diary of a depressed teen who committed suicide after joining a Satanic cult but was really written by Mormon Ph.D. Beatrice Sparks, author of Go Ask Alice and other cautionary "true stories" was informing parents of widespread cult activity just waiting to snatch nice kids up.

Throw in the rise of heavy metal rich in Satanic imagery and the whole of America looks like it's hiding a shadowy empire of the devil.

Omg....its a kid movie that promotes that our children should be what and who they are. Let it go and let it be. Its a new world and a new NORMAL. Get over it. 2014.

the only thing worse than hating gay people is bitching about people who hate gay people

Do you have a difficult time viewing or listening to any form of art? I would if I contended that I have an issue with something being promoted. That is ultimately the thing, isn't it? A message being displayed or sold to the viewer.

I have two young daughters, and I've personally been forced to endure this movie roughly 800,000 times, give or take. I can speak with some authority on the subject of Frozen. The ONLY thing it promotes is the special bond of sisters, and maybe perhaps the sinister agenda of encouraging children to become dutiful consumers by haranguing their parents to buy the damned soundtrack with all its catchy pop tunes.

I don't want Disney promoting anything at all with a hidden agenda. I think the author was really reaching with her observation and equating it to homosexuality. However whether it was homosexuality, cleaning your ass or brushing your hair, there shouldn't be a hidden agenda.

Promoting anything is bad. Not just homosexuality in itself.

"Trained Clinical Hypnotist?"  Are you associated with the Society of Clinical & Experimental Hypnosis?"  Please, share you licensure with us?  Or, are you a NLP practitioner without any formal training in Psychology or Psychiatry?

People like this blogger don't believe in "emotional repression". They aren't doing it, it doesn't exist. If you are in their world and feel trapped, it's a lie - it's a sin to even think so. You need to squelch those delusional thoughts so you can be truly obedient (to them, to God, to whoever). Given that worldview, of course they don't like characters in books and movies who successfully reject what they've been taught. Not only does it threaten them by showing others what they, too, could do, but it saddens them - if they truly believe such rebellious behavior is sinful, they don't want people engaging in it.


At least that's my lapsed-Baptist interpretation of things...

@DeathBreath  I received my training at the Anne King school in Boerne, TX, where I graduated with 98 percent. I don't maintain any current accreditation or licenses because a personal tragedy shortly after I finished my schooling led me to not want to practice professionally after all. I just do the occasional session for close friends.


I have no formal Psychology or Psychiatry training because I didn't really need it for what I was planning on doing. I wasn't a therapist. Just stop smoking, lose weight, test anxiety, that sort of thing. Any time I've run into someone with actual mental illness I've referred them to a clinical doctor, though preferably one that uses hypnosis as I believe very much in its effectiveness.  Hopefully that answered your question. Thanks for reading!
