I was wary about taking my seven year old cousin to see this due to what some reviews have lead me to believe, but I'm very happy I did. Paranorman's story isn't about the zombies or the witches?it's about being different, and how that's okay.
It infuriates me that the same people who said how wonderful this was, teaching kids about how they should accept others for who they are, also complained about a character revealing he is gay in a one-liner at the end. Isn't that the entire point of the movie? He's gay, and that's who he is?people should accept that.
Kids are more impressionable, and if they learn that being gay is fine at a young age they'll group up confident in their own sexuality rather than feel pressured into heteronormality. So it's amazing that this movie, a children's movie, treated someone's homosexuality so casually. Because that's how it should be, and this movie tells you that you're wonderful how you are and never let anyone tell you otherwise.
