Disney Princess revealed as bisexual on 'Once Upon A Time'

http://now.msn.com/disney-princess-m...sexual-on-ouat



Quote:
Do the math: At least one of those princesses had to be LGBT. Ever since Sunday’s episode of ABC’s “Once Upon A Time” the Internet has been buzzing over the dramatic reveal that Mulan is in love with Aurora of “Sleeping Beauty." For those who don't follow the show, the reveal was even more dramatic because last season, it was believed Mulan had feelings for Aurora’s Prince Phillip. Drama! The series, now in its third season, follows classic fairytale characters from Disney movies as they interact with each other both in an enchanted realm and the real world. Now, fans are applauding the big reveal, saying it represents the LGBT community that enjoys the show every week — and TV critics are hailing it as a commendable gesture of acceptance and affirmation by ABC and Disney.

Interesting they chose to even consider for a main character. And it was such a small piece that it didn't lend to a story at all. Didn't bother me, but it seemed like a wasted segment.

Of course it won't get me to stop watching. I'm addicted!

OK...Call me ignorant, I completely missed that part of the storyline! I thought Mulan was going to finally tell everyone she loved Phillip! She was in love with him in the beginning, right?! I'll have to rewatch it, I must've stepped out of the room during a piviotal point!

Last season we were led to believe that she wanted to save Phillip because she was secretly in love with him but didn't have the heart to tell Aurora. This reveal basically implies that she was actually trying to save Phillip this whole time to make Aurora happy.

ndebt, there was a part where Mulan went to Aurora and said she had something to say. Aurora said Phillip was gone, and Mulan said that was fine, because she actually wanted to talk to Aurora, and not Phillip. That was the tip-off that she was lesbian, or bi. When Aurora revealed her pregnancy, Mulan got cold feet and said her news was actually that she was joining Robin Hood's band, and then she turned and left immediately.

I know that it's on hulu, or was, because that's how I got started. I'm just not sure if it goes back all the way to the beginning. It's an amazing show. Can't wait to see Ariel and Ursula, and the Rufio reference this season made me super excited.

There are also rumors they want to work in Rapunzel and Cruella de Vil this season. Pongo is already on the show, as Jiminy Cricket's (Dr. Hopper) dog.

The first two seasons are streaming on Netflix too! Also ABC is really good about having episodes from current seasons on demand and on their website to stream!

I didn't pick up on this either. I figured Mulan had spent so much time with Aurora she felt the need to tell her the feelings she had for Phillip. Usually, if a girls is in love with a friends significant other, it's polite to approach the friend first. I don't think the average viewer picked up on your idea of bi feelings.

I disagree. I read this on huff post after the episode aired. Reads to me like people forcing it based on speculation. Seems to me like common sense would say it's Phillip, and though you could make the argument that there's no PROOF it's not Aurora, it's just not logical.

I wouldn't believe it, based on what we've seen, unless someone from Disney/ABC/Once Upon A Time comes out and says it, as well. Regardless of all the googling I've done, I've yet to see an actual rep from the show say it...it's all blogs and Inquirer type media outlets.

But hey, maybe I'm wrong.

In earlier shows it was clearly Philip she was interested in. It is a huge assumption that this means she is lesbian! People want her to be so make the leap in their own minds. And Disney is very smart, like with Gay Day. They will not say a word. They don't want to confirm or deny, let people think what they want and be happy. Just like how they get all the right merchanise in before Gay Day, but don't support it officially at all. Everybody is happy, nobody is mad at Disney, and they make money.

I wouldn't even put it past Disney, or the writers, to drop such a line in the story crafted for exactly this purpose. Just like politics: Plausible deniability!

Totally agree. My sister called me the next day up in arms about it. I missed it, although I don't care if that was what implied. We'll have to wait and see - still my favorite show
