    Parents Beware: 'Shrek 2' Features Transgenderism And Crossdressing Themes

    Topic: Homosexuality


    Summary: The DreamWorks' animated film, "Shrek 2," is billed as harmless entertainment but contains subtle sexual messages.

    Parents who are thinking about taking their children to see "Shrek 2," may wish to consider the following: The movie features a male-to-female transgender (in transition) as an evil bartender. The character has five o'clock shadow, wears a dress and has female breasts. It is clear that he is a she-male. His voice is that of talk show host Larry King.

    During a dance scene at the end of the movie, this transgendered man expresses sexual desire for Prince Charming, jumps on him, and both tumble to the floor.

    In another scene in the movie, Shrek and Donkey need to be rescued from a dungeon where they are chained against the wall. The rescue is conducted by Pinocchio who is asked to lie so his nose will grow long enough for one of the smaller cartoon characters to use it as a bridge to reach Shrek and Donkey. Donkey encourages him to lie about something and suggests he lie about wearing women's underwear. When he denies wearing women's underwear, his nose begins to grow.

    An earlier scene in the movie features a wolf dressed in grandma's clothing and reading a book when Prince Charming encounters him. Later, one of the characters refers to the wolf's gender confusion.

    TVC's report, "A Gender Identity Disorder Goes Mainstream," explains the transgender agenda and the effort to deconstruct the biological reality of male and female. DreamWorks is helping in this effort by promoting cross dressing and transgenderism in this animated film.

    Oh, for Pete's sake. Why do some folks have to examine stuff closely enough to take the fun out of it. And why can't folks who make fun stuff show characters who are outside the median of the Bell curve of "normal" in a positive light, just for the heck of it.

    Just for that, I'm gonna go see it and buy a copy!

    SOMEBODY does NOT have a life....

    My kids and I enjoyed Shrek 2 and if there WAS an agenda, I could not care less. On MY agenda was to have a lovely time with my kids, period. And it was a great movie.

    I had to think back as i read the thread to recall those things, and u are right those things are in there, but i never thought twice about and i doubt my son did either, shuck my son has seen it at least 3 times, he is almost 6 and he loves it, I loved it too

    I know if i had to screen everything my son watch he wouldn't even be able to watch cartoon.

    Man, some people just need a real hobby, instead of inventing things to ***** about. If that's traditional, i'll take radical any day.

    I remember all of those parts in Shrek 2. In my opinion, the scenarios were harmless. In this day and age, kids know A LOT more about life than they used to. I am extremely open with my daughter and we don't really worry about things like that.

    Are they serious? I LOOOOOVVVVVVVEEEEEEEDDDDDD Shrek 2! One of the best movies I have seen in ages. I think groups like this are so stupid they just create a backlash. If I could, I would turn gay just to annoy people like that.

    Do you remember Mr. Ed, the TV series about the talking horse? Well, a similar thinking religious group decided that the TV series was "demonized" because animals can't really talk...and there are few, if any, series on TV today as innocent as that one was.

    It just amazes me, that when there are so many things that need attention, that anyone would attempt to find something sinister in a child's movie.

    Hmmmm ... seems I'll be in the minority here.

    We saw the movie and enjoyed it. BUT ... I did notice the scenes mentioned, and at the time I did cringe inwardly and wondered if it was really necessary to include those references in a movie largely aimed at kids. These are ADULT jokes. My 10-year old dd has no idea of the connotations, so although she gave me a couple of quizzical looks, she didn't ask for clarification. So I didn't have to explain the implications of the transgendered bartender.

    I just don't think it's appropriate to explain these things now, at the age of 10.

    Are we really saying that there's no difference in the humor of adults and humor that appeals to children?
