A Dozen TV Shows Pushing LGBTQ Themes & Characters on Kids

 

Breitbart presents a list of a dozen cartoons (and one live action show) with LGBT themes from the past number of years aimed at children. It begins:

 

Hollywood has pushed a concerted, industry-wide effort for years to place LGBTQ-related entertainment into programs aimed at young audiences, often times in cooperation with gay rights group GLAAD.

GLAAD has spent years lobbying Hollywood studios to increase the representation of LGBTQ characters in various programing. The major TV networks, including Nickelodeon, PBS, Cartoon Network, and others, have joined that effort. Now nearly every TV series, animated or live-action, has added gay characters.

 

They continue to list 13 productions, and the main one we could highlight here is a new take on Scooby Doo’s Velma:

 

Last July, the makers of Scooby-Doo made a show of confirming that the character Velma is a lesbian. Activists have repeatedly assumed that the sensible-shoe-wearing character is either gay or bi-sexual. But co-creator Tony Cervone wrote: “Velma in Mystery Incorporated is not bi. She’s gay. We always planned on Velma acting a little off and out of character while she was dating Shaggy because that relationship was wrong for her, and she had unspoken difficulty with the why.”

 

Hmm, so he’s saying a heterosexual relationship was wrong for her? Maybe worse, he’s implying she should be depicted as an “opposite sex rejecter”, which we could call OSR for short. I dread the day when ideologues like him will get their mitts on Peanuts, and start depicting Marcie as a literal lesbian, giving new meaning to Peppermint Patty’s “you’re weird, Marcie” comment.

 

 

Another example cited is a Duck Tales reboot, proving Disney’s new age domineers are throwing the founder under the bus:

 

Last April, Disney revealed a gay character in DuckTales named Violet, who is presented as a child with two gay dads. The two dads wear shirts saying, “I’m With Dad” with arrows pointing left and right.

 

 

I’m sure they couldn’t give a damn what uncle Walt would think of how his successors have desecrated the ducks he created in his time. This is awful as can be, and not something children should be told is entirely normal. But it does confirm how a medium once limited to children in the USA, whose producers largely had no interest in developing cartoons for adults, is now being used to push this propaganda, because partisan politics have decided adult/mature themes in animation are acceptable, yet not something to be aimed at adults at all, just children. In Japan, whenever they produce cartoons with homosexual themes, they usually market them for older audiences, but in the USA, the bizarrely narrow view on cartoons remains, even as they’re suddenly willing to do stuff with content not considered suited for children, because indoctrination now validates use of the themes for what’s aimed at children, yet not at adults. Such peculiar thinking indeed.

 

And above all, this confirms the Saturday morning slate is no longer suitable for placing the children in front of the TV set to view. Time to look instead for the best of book material they can look over. Any more viewership of these ideologically motivated shows, and next thing you know, they’ll be exploited for indoctrinating children with Critical Race Theory. Don’t be shocked if that’s next in Hollywood’s political plans.
