A recent video leak that allegedly showed Disney executives advocating for a “gay agenda” for children’s programming has provoked fierce criticism from many quarters, including commentator Megyn Kelly.
The leaked video showed Karey Burke, president of Disney General Entertainment Content who has transgender and “pansexual” children of her own, declaring that moving forward Disney will have more LGBTQIA+ characters and narratives in the content produced for children, which of course is the majority of Disney’s content.
“We have many, many, many LGBTQIA characters in our stories, and yet we don’t have enough leads, and narratives in which gay characters just get to be characters,” Burke said in the video, and promised to correct that issue in what she seems to believe is for the best for the Disney brand and children in general.
Kelly, who has a podcast and talk show, “The Megyn Kelly Show” on SiriusXM, had strong words for Disney:
“So Disney and she have apparently made clear that they are going to be putting as many LGBTQIA+ in as many Disney movies as possible. That they want these characters to become ubiquitous in the Disney movies, and I think that is totally unnecessary and out of line. I don’t want you to work out your wokeism on my kid, OK? Do a movie that teaches tolerance, kindness, support for your fellow human beings.”
The idea of “two-spirit” people, who have some kind of dual nature combining a male and female soul (and gender attributes), and is sometimes associated with certain Native American practices by more liberal historians, came under fire from Kelly as did the idea of “pansexuality,” which can broadly imply attraction to everything, and has sometimes been criticized as simply a more progressive rebranding of bisexuality.
“Don’t shove two-spirit people, which by the way is not a thing, and pansexual — I had to look it up, you know what that means? It means you’re attracted to everybody. So you’re bi, I guess. That’s not a thing; that’s already a thing; they already have a letter. I’m sorry, but please, all these glommers who just want attention, it’s a new thing!” Kelly said.
She called on parents to more carefully scrutinize the media their children consume, and start putting their foot down on Disney.
“Don’t put a Disney movie on in front of your kid before you fully come to understand what it’s going to be promoting, who it’s going to be starring, and what agenda they’re pushing,” Kelly warned.
Kelly summed up the situation with one sad sentence capturing the reminiscing for an era of children’s entertainment that appears to have vanished, slain by modern progressiveness:
“They’re no longer the Disney of yesterday.”
