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.
This is the worst representation I’ve ever seen when will we actually get queer characters without having to deduce it from like 0.3 seconds of screen time and a vague hint
the worst? are we forgetting..
i always thought, because he looks directly at hiccup when he says it, that he meant “because he doesn’t want to deal with kids like hiccup” ?? but yeah this is cool too
DeBlois commented that he may or may not give Gobber a love interest in the third film. Keep in mind that there wasn’t initially even supposed to be gay representation - it was a last minute decision on Ferguson’s part that Dean wanted to keep in.
Had they wanted better representation, after Ferguson adlibbed this, it would have involved a lot more work on their part that would involve hours upon hours of more work when it comes to storyboarding (keep in mind that, especially in such a huge company like DW, they would create hundreds of storyboard pieces for every single version of one scene).
I’m not saying that tiny bits of “this character is gay if you squint and contemplate” is be okay representation, but it wasn’t planned. Had they planned it, it would’ve been far more evident and much better. Especially when you take into consideration that Dean DeBlois himself is gay and would probably be super down with having more gay representation.
Until someone said something when it came out, I thought he meant because he loved Valka at one point too.
I THOUGHT IT WAS BECAUSE HE HAS A PROSTHETIC DICK TOO
"We’re as different as night and day, Queen Noor."
"On the contrary, I think we’re more alike than you think…"
inspired by this post, about a possible Frozen sequel with a fiery muslim queen… who can control fire. i ship it.
the name Noor, by the way, means light or radiance
YES PLEASE CAN THIS BE??? THE SEQUEL?
QUEEN ELSA GOES LOOKING FOR OTHER PEOPLE RUMORED TO HAVE POWERS SIMILAR TO HER OWN BUT THEY ALL TURN OUT TO BE HOAXES AND SHE GETS DISHEARTENED BECAUSE IS SHE REALLY THE ONLY ONE OUT THERE?? CUE ANNA BEING A GOOD SISTER AND SUPPORTING HER LIKE “NAH SIS AND EVEN IF YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE, THAT’S OKAY!!! CAUSE LIKE… SNOWFLAKES ARE DIFFERENT AND SO ARE YOU AND… UM…. DANG I’M ACTUALLY BAD AT THIS LIFE ADVICE STUFF BUT ILU SIS AND BEING SPECIAL IS GREAT!”
BUT THEN SHE FINDS OUT THERE ARE ACTUALLY A WHOLE BUNCH OF PEOPLE WITH POWERS LIKE HER AND STARTS BEFRIENDING THEM AND LEARNING NEW USES FOR HER POWERS AND ONE OF THEM HAPPENS TO BE THIS SUPER CUTE MUSLIM QUEEN AND
/BREATHES, BREATHES, BREATHES, BREATHES
/LITERALLY BOUNCES IN SEAT
and the villain could be someone trying to take away all the powers in the world because he can’t stand it that there are people who are DARING TO BE DIFFERENT and why can’t they just be NORMAL and HAVE YOU TRIED /NOT/ BEING WHO YOU ARE?
it could be a huge metaphor for sexuality while actual cute yuris happen on screen and then they get married and become co-queens maybe
DISNEY’S VERSION OF THE X-MEN. THAT’S WHAT YOU HAVE EXPLAINED AND NOW I NEED IT.

Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.
(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)
gotta love the star trek-level special effects and acting, compounded with a PSA voice-over and music. also, gotta love Mark Ruffalo.

1. Don’t try to piss quietly. Nobody in a public restroom thinks you’re knitting in your stall. They came to piss, just like you. And if you have to take a dump, do it. Get over your fear of public toilets. It’ll make life a lot easier.
2. Masturbate. Masturbate a lot. Talk about it with your friends. You’ve got the right to make yourself feel good and brag about it just like all the boys with extra large kleenex packages on their desks.
3. If you want the large fries, get the large fries. Hunger and appetite are nothing to be ashamed of, just human. Don’t ever feel guilty for eating in front of others. You need to nourish your body to stay alive. We all do.
4. Laugh as loud as you have to, no matter if you snort or gasp or literally scream.
5. Fart when you have to.
6. Always remember you weren’t born to visually please others. Forget the phrase “what if they think it’s ugly”. If you think it’s lovely, it is lovely. You wanna wear it, wear it!
7. Speak your mind! You can learn to do so without insulting others or shoving your opinion down other people’s throats.
