Thank Goodness! Alleged Family Entertainment Behemoth Disney Announces that Children's Entertainment Film Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker Will Have All the Required LGBT Representation

We didn't already have that with Vice Admiral Gender Studies in The Last Jedi?

She was into boys, huh?

Ah well. More representation promised.

Alas, it will not be the Finn/Poe gay sex coupling that many weirdo fans demanded (and which actor Oscar Isaacs frequently promoted).

"In the case of the LGBTQ community, it was important to me that people who go to see this movie feel that they're being represented in the film," [director "Jar Jar"] Abrams said. "I will say I'm giving away nothing about what happens in the movie. But I did just say what I just said."

J.J. Abrams has long promised that the Star Wars universe will be introducing gay characters in the coming future.

"When I talk about inclusivity, it’s not excluding gay characters," Abrams previously told The Daily Beast. "It's about inclusivity. So of course. I would love it. To me, the fun of Star Wars is the glory of possibility. So it seems insanely narrow-minded and counterintuitive to say that there wouldn’t be a homosexual character in that world."

Following the release of "The Force Awakens," social media immediately lit up with hopeful calls for the characters Finn and Poe (played by John Boyega and Oscar Isaac, respectively) to embark on a romantic love affair; fans hoping to see that materialize will be left disappointed this time around. Both Boyega and Oscar Isaac expressed dismay over that fact.

Meanwhile, the extremely weird and creepy creepsters of the leftwing toxic fandom decided that because Billie Dee Williams said (in response to a question designed to elicit just this sort of answer) that sure, he was in touch with his feminine side as well as his male side, he was therefore "gender fluid."

Billie Dee Williams now refutes that, saying he doesn't even know what the hell "gender fluid" means.

In that interview, the 82-year-old actor said, "And you see, I say 'himself' and 'herself,' because I also see myself as feminine as well as masculine. I'm a very soft person. I'm not afraid to show that side of myself.”

Media outlets -- so many media outlets! -- picked that quote up and ran with it. Williams, they reported, is gender fluid. People praised him. Oh, how they praised him.

Thing is, Williams has no idea what that means.

"Well, first of all, I asked last night. I said, 'What the hell is gender fluid?' That's a whole new term," Williams said in an interview with The Undefeated this week.

He was misunderstood, he says.

"But what I was talking about was about men getting in touch with their softer side of themselves. There's a phrase that was coined by Carl G. Jung, who was a psychiatrist, who was a contemporary of Sigmund Freud, and they had a splitting of the ways because they had different ideas about the... what do you call it? Consciousness. Unconscious. It's collective unconsciousness. But he coined a phrase that’s, 'Anima animus.' And anima means that is the female counterpart of the male self, and the animus is the male counterpart of the female.

"So, that's what I was referring to. I was talking about men getting in touch with the female side of themselves. I wasn't talking about sex, I wasn't talking about being gay or straight."

But the weirdo internet toxic fandom "press," as well as the clickbait legacy press, decided to brand the 82-year-old as "gender fluid" based on an offhanded reference to Carl Jung's notion of multiple spirits making up a single spirit.

Below, a longtime Star Wars fan (since The Force Awakens) reacts to the newest mindblowing commercial for Kathleen Kennedy's saga.
