Despite making up a tiny minority of the population, and having practically zero mass-market buying power, corporations and large brands continue to foist upon the general public niche fetishes to indoctrinate and normalize aberrant behavior. In a rush to maintain their trend of cutting out the legs of the Star Wars brand from beneath itself, Disney and director J.J. Abrams followed through with including an LGBT kissing scene in Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker.
The Hollywood Reporter kept it brief, offering a slight spoiler for the movie (not that it matters much), explaining…
“Following hints from J.J. Abrams that Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker would include an LGBTQ moment or character, the film’s premiere on Monday revealed the scene to which the director was referring. In a celebration sequence in the film, two female members of the Resistance share an exuberant kiss during the joyful moment. They are minor characters and not heavily featured in the film.”
As reported by The Blaze, previous to this revelation of the lesbian kiss, director J.J. Abrams had teased the media that they would throw in some propaganda to appease the vocal and very loud minority that dictates and controls all of mass media it seems.
To make matters worse, Disney managed to sneak the scene into the Chinese version of Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker.
The Hollywood Reporter did a follow-up article explaining that the Ministry of Culture and its off-shoot, the Ministry of Propaganda, apparently did not require Disney to make any edits to the scene, despite China having laws prohibiting the promotion of LGBTQIA+ content, and have even arrested and jailed people for illegally selling yaoi novels that the Ministry of Justice deemed “obscene”.
The article explains…
“Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’s much touted same-sex kiss — the fabled franchise’s very first LGBTQ moment — has gone uncut by China’s oft heavy-handed film regulators. Moviegoers attending Wednesday night preview screenings of Skywalker in both Beijing and Shanghai reported the moment had been retained.”
Then again, maybe China is a-okay with lesbians lip-locking on the big screen but hate it when two half-naked men are racing their tongues up and down each other’s sweaty bodies like a Dodge Demon and a Camaro SS racing up and down a drag strip?
Nevertheless, if this becomes a trend, and China begins allowing LGBTQIA+ propaganda into films distributed across the mainland, then it’s yet another region brought to yield under the boot-heel of the Rainbow Reich.
