One Million (Bigoted) Moms Protest Disney Gay Pride Day

By  | 

gay-rainbow-handsIn case you haven’t heard of them, One Million Moms is an organization made up of women who are sick and tired of smutty filth like “The Biggest Loser” and Skittles commercials and Ellen Degeneres poisoning the minds of our vulnerable children. Well, they’re at it again, and this time they’re emailing Disney’s CEO in an attempt to strike down Disney’s Gay Day.

The One Million Moms website details their campaign against this longstanding celebration of an important demographic, the LGBTQ community. But instead of posting an excerpt from their ridiculous website, I’m going to play a little game! Let’s take some of their paragraphs and replace terms like “homosexual couples” with “interracial couples” to really shed light on how stupid these people are going to look in fifty years. My changes in bold:

Warning! Not everyone there will be excited, innocent children anticipating a fun weekend at Disney World. The first Saturday in June, black people, Asian people and Mexican people will be at the Magic Kingdom with an agenda and purpose different than what would be expected at Disney.

This event is planned with the intent to expose and desensitize children to this lifestyle by interracial couples holding hands, hugging and kissing. In short, an Interracial Marriage Day participant’s main goal is to be seen versus seeing Disney World.

On June 1, unsuspecting families will witness a well-orchestrated event that Disney says they have no control over.

Disney has taken no action to stop this, which leaves families stunned and offended. So instead of a normal day at this popular theme park, parents will be angry at the harm this causes families.

Disney has been irresponsible for far too long. Disney representatives and security need to maintain a family-friendly atmosphere and require proper conduct and dress code on a daily basis.

Just, ugh. I don’t understand why the OMM think that Disney should take action to stop this gay pride day. Maybe these moms haven’t noticed, but if Disney is really out to “desensitize children to this lifestyle,” they’re doing a horrible job.

As it is, the whole Disney brand is completely saturated with hetero culture. There’s not a single Disney TV character, movie character, animal, prince or princess (though I guess some have made conjectures about Merida) who is openly gay. All Disney romances are rigidly traditional — love, marriage, baby carriage! Period end of story! So why, for the love of god, in the vast straight traditional ocean of Disney, is a single Gay Day so much to ask?

These moms need to get their asses out of their ivory towers and get with the times.
