As for the princesses, I think the whole "every girl can be a princess" mentality is a lie that cheapens the inherited titles. As a product line, it cheapens the films from which the characters came. And as for Disney's gender/sexual politics, remember the Southern Baptist Boycott of the 1990s? (1995's "Priest," a Miramax with Linus Roache and Robert Carlyle, was one of the films mentioned) blew up in the church's faces and had no effect on Disney. There was an Goofy cartoon from 1949 called "They're Off." It was about horse racing, and one of the horses was named Old Moe. One of the goofs bet on that horse and made a very stereotypical limp-wrist hand gesture as he said "Old Moe? Moe?" Considering it was 1949 and which studio made it, I thought it was funny. Then there were the rumors about Scar in "The Lion King" because of Simba saying "you're weird," to which Scar replied "oh, you have no idea." That wasn't a gay joke, it was a reference to Jeremy Irons' role in "Reversal of Fortune."
