Anyway, be gay do witchcraft.

When Disney added a new character named Violet to DuckTales on Disney XD back in April, they gave her two fathers, no mother. One Million Moms director Monica Cole, has previously made similar complaints about Toy Story 4, PBS’s Arthur and Pixar’s Onward (which featured the studio’s first openly gay character) — as well as Disney TV’s The Owl House for being occult influenced and — made renewed calls for a boycott on Disney.
“DuckTales is not the same cartoon parents grew up watching. Disney has introduced a male couple as the parents of two characters in the reboot of its popular DuckTales, rated TV-Y.”
“It is apparent that this particular producer is not finished with indoctrinating children by exposing them to homosexual relationships through a facade of normalcy,” Cole added in reference to Angones’ blog post. “If anyone still has any doubt on where Disney stands on this controversial issue, hopefully this makes it clear that there is an LGBTQ agenda they are forcing on young audiences.”
Now this from the Daily Wire:
Disney confirmed its cartoon about a teenage girl who takes up witchcraft after stumbling into the demon realm is the first to feature a lead character who is bisexual.
The protagonist of “The Owl House” is 14-year-old Dominican-American girl Luz Noceda, who reportedly expressed interest in male characters at some point but has since expressed interest in females, according to several sources. The show is about Noceda’s adventure in becoming a witch, despite having no magical powers.
Show creator Dana Terrace, whose pinned tweet as of Monday is “Anyway, be gay do witchcraft,” said she has long had the intention to feature queer children in the cast of the show and used a recent episode about Luz going to prom as revealing the character’s sexuality. Terrace identifies as bisexual.
I’m bi! I want to write a bi character, dammit! Luckily my stubbornness paid off and now I am VERY supported by current Disney leadership. (Thank you @NashRiskin and team!) Not to mention the amazingness of this crew.

“In dev I was very open about my intention to put queer kids in the main cast,” she tweeted. “I’m a horrible liar so sneaking it in would’ve been hard haha. When we were greenlit I was told by certain Disney leadership that I could NOT represent any form of bi or gay relationship on the Channel.”
“I’m bi! I want to write a bi character, dammit! Luckily my stubbornness paid off and now I am VERY supported by current Disney leadership,” she added.
Joseph R. Murray II, an openly gay attorney, recently wrote an op-ed published by the Orlando Sentinel in which he criticized Disney for pushing same-sex romance on an unsuspecting audience of children.
“Prime-time network television is geared for an adult audience; one that understands the world we live in. Adults have long lost their innocence. Whether it be sex, drugs or violence, many of us have had our eyes open to the hardships of the world. We lost our innocence when we grew out of adolescence, but do we really want our kids to lose theirs in adolescence?” Murray asked.
“The vision for Walt’s world was clear: Entertain children. Disney characters were about hope, optimism and, above all else, making sure children were able to enjoy their innocence for as long as the outside world would permit,” Murray continued. “And Disney understood that part of its mission was to provide a buffer for as long as possible.”
“Since ‘Gay Days’ reached a fever pitch in the early 2000s, Disney’s connection to LGBT liberal activism has grown closer. Many in pop culture gleefully speculate which classic Disney characters are gay, and now Disney’s reboot of ‘Beauty and the Beast’ will put an end to at least some of speculation,” Murray wrote. “Yes, LGBT folks are treated horrifically in some places and, yes, LGBT folks are normal, but why do we have to expose our kids to such mature themes?”
“Do they not have plenty of time to grow up?” Murray asked. “Or maybe the point is to make them grow up too soon and that is where I part ways with my community.”
Murray concluded by shooting down the argument that “LGBT kids need reaffirmation.”
“I was gay and grew up without gay Disney and made it just fine,” he asserted. “I bet the fact I was able to keep my childhood innocence played a part.”
Marvel Entertainment, also owned by Disney, has seen their books riddled with politics and perversion in recent years. Most recently the implication that Cyclops, Jean Grey and Wolverine were involved in a threesome. Their current event ‘Empyre’ seems like nothing more than a rehashed version of their last crossover event (War of Realms), except this one is focused on a same sex romance involving the son of the Hulk.
As the liberalization of attitudes towards gays and lesbians has occurred in many countries across the globe since sometime in the 1980s, a change in attitudes was encouraged in part by communications climates that allowed for the signal boosting of minority viewpoints. In fact at the Scholars institute, they believe that media and entertainment portrayals of positive gay characters and generally more depictions of LGBTQ in the “media are essential for advancing gay rights and suggests that media freedom may need to precede efforts to secure gay rights legislation. In corners of the globe where homosexual rights are still highly contentious, both personal and virtual contacts conveying positive images of lesbians and gays can lead to constructive change.” This isn’t happening accidentally and there is an agenda behind it whether you recognize it or not.
Despite appearances and ratings, perhaps these shows are not for kids, particularly shows like Steven Universe, She-Ra, and My Little Pony. And yet the producers, creators and writing staff writers are well aware that there is a sizable audience of adult children who seem thrilled with these shows. The real “man-babies” are very much into these shows, and are usually ultra liberal lefties who spend inordinate amounts of time watching these kinds of kids cartoons, purchasing merchandise, signal boosting them on social media and message board engagement. There’s clearly an audience.
But mature adults must understand that they should NOT let their kids have unfettered access to any video streaming service or even the internet in general. There is nothing innately wrong with including characters in programming of diverse backgrounds, faiths, and philosophies, but some topics included in what passes as “children’s programming,” should probably be kept to more mature fare, or at least be preceded with a warning label.
