4. But instead of marrying the princess…
5. He marries the prince.
6. And they have the usual happily ever after ending.

I believe it’s important to show kids different forms of love in a positive light instead of just one. Alternatively, avoidance could potentially put kids at a disadvantage towards understanding and acceptance later on in life.”
