    Honestly, I agreed with Disney’s official explanation that Elsa just isn’t ready for any kind of romance yet. I mean, she doesn’t even really have any friends besides Anna. (Kristoff and Olaf are much more Anna’s friends, she barely shares any dialogue with them.) Now that she’s really come into herself, maybe she can think about that kind of thing, but I also think it would be really cool if she was asexual. I do think Disney should have a gay character, like years ago, but having it be Elsa seems… I don’t know, a little contrived? Like just because she doesn’t end up with a boyfriend at the end of the first movie doesn’t mean she is or should be gay, and I’m not really sure why people are so insistent on it. Merida and Moana didn’t end up with boyfriends either and no one is saying they have to be gay (though I think Merida would actually be a much better candidate, and that would have made the film more interesting). I mean, I definitely wouldn’t mind if she got together with Honeymeren or something in a future movie, but being mad that Disney didn’t go in that direction with Frozen 2 when Elsa had barely learned to socialize seems kind of unfair. I personally think it should be something Disney deals with in an original film. You know, like, assuming they are actually capable of making original films anymore and not just remakes and sequels.
