By now, you’ve heard about Disney including an animated same-sex kiss in its upcoming release “Lightyear,” a film that ostensibly tells the origin story of the iconic character Buzz Lightyear from the “Toy Story” franchise. 

Although, I thought Buzz Lightyear was a toy. How, exactly, does a store-bought toy have an “origin story” featuring his life on another planet that brought him, eventually, to earth? I guess you’ll have to buy a ticket to find out. 

The reaction to the same-sex kiss has been typical on all sides of the political/cultural spectrum. 

The moral and intellectual giant Perez Hilton represents the typical thought-provoking analysis we’ve come to expect from the cultural left these days: 

Buzz Lightyear got banned in multiple countries over a gay kiss. CARTOONS KISSING, Y’ALL. That’s some commitment to homophobia. https://t.co/BNejd7hLyN

“Buzz Lightyear got banned in multiple countries over a gay kiss. CARTOONS KISSING, Y’ALL. That’s some commitment to homophobia,” he tweeted. 

Uh-huh…  

This is the standard response
