"We’ve grown used to this story when told about a boy and his father. Familial communication is, after all, the central theme of more than one children’s film. In fact Pixar’s most successful film to date, Finding Nemo shares many similarities. But because that film was about a boy, the “status quo” gender, it was unnecessary to analyze it. And look at Buzz Lightyear in the original Toy Story or Remy in Ratatouille. Like Merida they express no specific sexuality, yet the media didn’t exactly dive into articles pondering their sexuality days after the films crushed the box office."
