When I was growing up, I was not allowed to watch shows like SpongeBob and the Simpsons. Why? They were idiotic and my parents did not want me soaking in the subliminal messages telling children that immoral things are okay.
Disney Channel has been standing on the edge of a slippery slope for a long time now, and it looks like they have finally gone over the edge. Instead of allowing children to be children, without involving gender-bending ideas, they have introduced a show that not only shows a gay kiss, but now a “male princess.”
Just the words male and princess in that order are an oxymoron. Men are not princesses.
Children are supposedly trying to change their gender in record numbers, sex ed classes are saturated with discussions of gender identity, drag queens are hosting story time at public libraries and nursery schools, children are participating in drag festivals, and toddlers encouraged to “try on” different genders.
So, sooner or later, the iconic Disney princess was bound to be corrupted by this mess.
Enter the Disney XD show, “Star vs. The Forces of Evil” which already broke barriers by featuring a gay kiss in a previous season.
The animated show is now being hailed by LGBT groups for featuring Disney’s first ever boy princess in the form of a boy, Marco Diaz, who disguises himself as the princess “Turdina” only to be defended by the other girls when he is discovered.
EW.com reported that “Marco is about to reveal his truth to the students when Ms. Heinous storms in and outs him herself, pulling down his shirt to reveal a strand of chest hair.”
“If anyone causes one of these little ones–those who believe in me–to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.” (Matthew 18:5 NIV)
“But the other princesses stand by Marco’s side…’That doesn’t prove anything. Princesses can be hairy,’ one princess shouts. ‘Why does it matter if he’s a boy? Nothing he said was wrong,’ another exclaims,'” EW added.
The characters also say things like “Turdina is a state of mind” and “He can be a princess if he wants to!”
The American Family Association Executive Vice President Ed Vitagliano warns, “It is not Disney’s place to assume the role of parents deciding when to confront children with alternative lifestyles. I’m not saying that it’s wrong for children to know that gays and lesbians exist, only that parents should be the ones to tell them. Disney should not circumvent parents on this matter.”
He added, “It has grave — and perhaps eternal — consequences.”
