Paranorman reveals first openly gay animated character
at first i thought mitch and kathy were going to hook up, like athletic boys and bratty teenage girls always do at the end of movies. but then he said this and the whole theatre screamed and EVERYTHING MADE SENSE AND IT WAS SO GREAT
this was such a great scene. his sexuality didn’t define him, he wasn’t used as the butt of a joke, it was just great. she was into him, and he’s just a dumb guy who possibly didn’t really even know she was really hitting on him throughout the film. it just wow. this one line just means a whole fucking lot to people.
What I like about this the best is that they LITERALLY WAITED UNTIL THE VERY LAST SECOND TO REVEAL IT. Basically forcing you to form your opinion of him based on his personality and characteristics, instead of his sexuality.
WHICH IS HOW IT’S SUPPOSED TO WORK.
