Children’s program featuring ‘family’ of 2 lesbians
WASHINGTON – An episode of a Disney cartoon for preschoolers normalizes homosexual relationships.
LifeSiteNews.com reports an Aug. 5 episode of the Disney Junior channel show “Doc McStuffins” featured a family headed by two lesbian “moms.”
“Doc McStuffins” is about a 7-year-old who wants to be a doctor and fixes her broken toys.
The show targets preschoolers and young children, and its website features child-friendly video games and print-out coloring pages.
The episode, called “The Emergency Plan,” is about a “family” of dolls forced to flee their house after an earthquake. The ostensible message of the episode is to teach children the importance of preparing for emergency situations, but the homosexual undertones are clear.
Wanda Sykes, the lesbian actress who plays one of the lesbian “parents” in the show, told GLAAD, the world’s largest homosexual advocacy group, that “with this episode, [my kids] see a family that looks like our family.”
“We’re two moms,” she said. “… it’s going to be very exciting for them to see our family represented.”
Chris McGee, the show’s producer, who is in a same-sex “marriage,” was interviewed by AfterEllen.com in 2012 about “Doc McStuffins.”
When asked if “subtle messages” about homosexuality are in the show, she replied, “Definitely.”
“My son (Theo) has two moms, and it’s a huge part of my life as a human being, and it’s been an incredible part of the way that I see the world and the way I see characters and the way I want to create characters who are incredibly accepting of each other and whatever is happening in their life,” McGee said.
“It’s hard to know exactly where the boundaries are because they’re always changing in kids’ TV.”
McGee said she was “very pleasantly surprised that Disney has been happy to celebrate who I am and who my family is and when we talk about how my son is the inspiration of this show we’re also talking about my family and my family is my partner Lisa, myself and Theo.”
The show has become part of a larger trend across all of Disney’s platforms of pushing the LGBT agenda.
The inclusion of a “gay” character in the 2017 “Beauty and the Beast” remake was the focus of intense media attention, with even some homosexuals pushing back against the blatant agenda.
In March, Disney XD show “Star vs. The Forces of Evil” featured “gay” and lesbian characters kissing in the background of a scene at a boy band concert.
The show “Gravity Falls” also heavily hinted that two characters were in a homosexual relationship.
The company’s overt promotion of alternative sexual lifestyles specifically directed at children would not have gone over well with the company founder, says a man who knew Walt Disney.
In fact, it would have disgusted him, says Rev. Franklin Graham, son of renowned preacher Rev. Billy Graham.
Franklin Graham met Disney with his father and brother when he was younger. Walt Disney “would be shocked at what has happened to the company that he started,” he said.
Pushing the LGBT agenda is not merely confined to the screen for Disney.
Since 1991, Disney World has hosted “Gay Days.”
Disney also was vocal in its opposition to the Defense of Marriage Act in the months leading up to its overturning by the Supreme Court in 2013.
