The anti-LGBT+ evangelic group One Million Moms are planning to boycott Disney because “families are blindsided” by the lesbian scenes in Toy Story 4. The two ‘’dangerous’’ scenes only last a few seconds and show two mothers dropping their child off at school and later picking the child up.
The conservative group claims that the scene was ‘’kept quiet’’ in order to ‘’expose’’ as many people to this as possible. Their campaign goes by the name “Disney Blindsides Families with Lesbian Scene in Toy Story 4.” Spokesperson Monica Cole said the following in a statement released by the group: “It was a noticeably small scene with the sole purpose of attempting to normalise this lifestyle. Not to mention there was a brief comment made about not hiding in a closet also in the movie. Some children may not catch this reference, but it was extremely unnecessary as with the lesbian couple.”
She added, “Disney has decided once again to be politically correct versus providing family-friendly entertainment. Disney should stick to entertaining instead of pushing an agenda and exposing children to controversial topics.”
Their petition currently has over 12,000 signatures, and it says, “I do not appreciate Disney including LGBTQ content in the children’s movie Toy Story 4. There has been a deliberate lack of mentioning this content. Therefore, families are blindsided intentionally by your company. Actions such as this make me continue to distrust Disney.”
