a simple reminder that no matter how he tries to portray himself as this pretentious, larger than life person…gus is still just a seventeen year old boy
My 4 year old brother told me he was scared to grow up and cried for like 10 minutes straight
finally I asked why he was so scared
and he said he was scared of drinking coffee
I didn’t tell enough people
to fuck off.

Men who can’t cook, clean, or even do their own laundry are not “cute” and “in need of a woman to care for them”. They are spoiled brats so dependent on gender roles that they never bothered to learn the minimal skills to take care of themselves.
i formally apologize to anyone who knew me when i was 13
This was ad-libbed by the voice actor, Craig Ferguson and they chose to keep it in because they loved it. Kids won’t get it but adults will be thinking “did he just imply what I think he implied?”
And later the director confirmed it.
DeBlois revealed that, the reason Gobber never got married, is because he is homosexual. This makes him the first homosexual character of the franchise, and even DreamWorks itself.
Every time I see this post it is usually accompanied by a negative comment about how Dreamworks chickened out, how they suck at being progressive, or just a general complaint that “It’s not enough!!!”.
Maybe it’s not the coming out most people wanted, but it’s a step. A big step. The mention in the movie, a movie meant for young audiences at that, was enough to make teens and adults question… but for them to ACTUALLY reveal that this character is gay? Yeah that’s awesome and here’s why:
For Dreamworks, a company that never does just okay, but either flunks or rocks it hard, this could have jeopardized the entire movie. Imagine if groups, like One Million Moms for example, decided to protest the movie because of this one character. We all know they would. The last four animated movies that Dreamworks released did not bring the company as much profit as it estimated or needed. No matter how great you think RotG or The Croods was, because they were pretty rad, they did not get received by the general audience. Dreamworks basically put everything into HTTYD 2 with the hopes it would keep the animation department alive and well.
With everything riding on this movie, they still put that line in there. They did not have to make that character gay, it’s not important to the story. They did it because they feel representation is necessary, but they also had to be careful about it because the number of bigots around the world is still high enough to hurt a movie.
It is a step. If we don’t appreciate the basic steps towards representation in the media we’ll never reach it. Thank you Dreamworks.
