Dems Out in Left Field on Sex

Disney, schools, and transgender ideology are all pushing the LGBTQ+ agenda beyond the pale.

“The party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command.” —George Orwell, 1984

The Rainbow Mafia has been pushing its flank in the battleground of the culture war. It’s no longer even hiding its rabid push to indoctrinate your children or infringe on the rights of women.

Florida’s anti-grooming bill and Disney deviance

Florida has enacted a bill that disallows teachers from indoctrinating children in pre-K through 3rd grade with intentional LGBTQ+ lesson plans. It’s an anti-grooming bill that seeks to protect the innocence of very young school-aged children. Radical leftists, though, have decided to make this a hill to die on and dubbed it the “Don’t Say Gay Bill.”

This is a complete manipulation. The “Don’t Say Gay” narrative-pushers display the most horrid and diabolical activism. The biggest fish they have gotten to is Disney, which has many homosexual employees and even has Gay Days at its theme parks. Disney has its fingers in many media pies. It owns ABC, ESPN, the Disney Channel, and Disney+, which houses Marvel, Star Wars, and Pixar. Disney was put under tremendous pressure by the Rainbow Mafia to stand publicly against this bill. Disney’s CEO recently voiced his displeasure and intentions to meet with Governor Ron DeSantis about the bill. Governor DeSantis, for his part, pointed out how disturbing it was that Disney, a company that makes a lot of content for children, was coming out in favor of grooming.

Last week, ESPN hosts paused for a moment of silence over the legislation. “There are things bigger than basketball,” opined ESPN’s Courtney Lyle. “Our LGBTQIA+ teammates at Disney asked for our solidarity and support.”

Moreover, Pixar re-inserted a deleted same-sex kiss scene in the upcoming children’s film “Lightyear,” an offshoot film of the wildly popular movie series “Toy Story.” Pixar, in particular, feels like Disney’s CEO has protested too little and too late.

Disney, which is best known for its children’s entertainment, is on shaky ground. If it caters to the LGBTQ+ side and loses parents, it’s going to hit them directly in the pocketbook.

Then this scandal hit the papers: Four Disney employees were among the 108 people involved in a human trafficking ring in Florida. All were looking to exploit the vulnerable, and at least one has been charged with soliciting a minor and accused of child grooming.

Not a great look for Disney overall.

Transgenderism

Transgenderism is an ideology that’s infiltrating schools, social media, and sports. It’s causing a generation of children — many of whom are young teens going through puberty — to bow to this belief in order to explain the changes going on in their own bodies.

Young girls, who have seen a 50% increase in suicides, are particularly susceptible to this ideology. The Daily Signal recounts a horrific story of one mother’s loss of her daughter not only to transgenderism but to suicide. Her daughter was dealing with depression and turned to transgenderism to help cure it. The school hid it from the family. Then, when it became known by the family, the daughter was taken away by Children and Family Services to protect her from committing suicide. Three years later, the unthinkable happened — the daughter ended her life. It left her mother railing at the CFS. “Where is my daughter? You took her away from me, my family. Now she’s gone. You told me that she was going to be better off.” Devastating.

Schools are the epicenter of this indoctrination. More evidence has come to light that schools are actively hiding transitions from parents. In Wisconsin, the Eau Claire Area School District told teachers that parents had to earn the right to know if their child had declared a different gender identity. This will hopefully have a reckoning when the parents elect new school board members.

Just this week, renowned children’s author J.K. Rowling posted a screenshot of a message she received from a young woman who told her transition story, saying: “At 16 I was prescribed testosterone after 2 ‘therapy’ visits. They didn’t ask about my bpd or past trauma. I now have PCOS, am awaiting testing to determine if I need a hysterectomy/have cancer, and I will never be able to afford breast reduction. My consent was not informed.” Rowling replied: “This breaks my heart. I’ve now spoken to many young women who tell similar stories. I’m appalled that you were let down in this way by people who had a duty of care towards you. Hoping to god the tests give good news and sending you much love.”

Then there is the Lia Thomas controversy. At the NCAA women’s swimming championships, he won first place in the 500 free by a second and a half (which in swimming is a substantial gap). Virginia Tech swimmer and 2016 Olympian Reka Gyorgy wrote a letter to the NCAA calling for a change in the rules. She herself was bumped out of being able to compete in the finals because Thomas took a spot that belongs to a biological woman.

Concluding thoughts

As far as the Florida bill is concerned, it’s just another example of how in-tune Ron DeSantis is with parents and the voters of Florida. Parents by and large would prefer to let their children be children and learn essential academics such as reading, writing, math, science, and history. Parents would also like the authority to talk about sex and sexual differences themselves and not leave that up to the schools.

Regarding transgenderism ideology, children are still learning about who they are and what identity is. The added confusion will endure, and the life this sets them up for is by and large an unhappy one.

These efforts of the radical Democrats of pushing LGBTQ+ ideology on children, encouraging schools to take parental rights away, enabling the trans lie, and creating a toxic culture as a result are ghoulish. A lot of demographics are opposed to this and will vote accordingly. It’s not looking good for the leftists in November.
