DISNEY EMBRACES 'QUEER AGENDA'

Few people are aware of the pervasiveness and full-spectrum dominance of the queer agenda over institutions in the West.
This agenda is not "bottom up" activism.
It is "top down", pushed by the Western globalist elite.
The theory is formed in academia - specifically in the social sciences and their courses like cultural studies, gender studies, post-colonial studies, woman's studies and pretty-well every course with 'studies' in it's name.
YouTube influencer Jordan Peterson is more erudite and more qualified to speak on this subject.
These courses are based on 'post-modern critical theory' or, in layman's terms, 'cultural Marxism'. Or 'Social Justice' is another term, with upper-case S and J.
This post-modern SJ ideology is quite different from the ordinary meaning of 'social justice'
The aim of this 'queer agenda' is to overthrow our existing traditional social order based heteronormativity, opposite-sex marriage, and the influence of heterosexual parents over their children. It is to overthrow 'oppressive Christian values' and the 'oppressive patriarchy'.
It is revolutionary, indeed we are experiencing a Cultural Revolution in the west, equally as radical as Chairman Mao's attempted Cultural Revolution in China that, thank goodness, came to an abrupt end in 1977 when Deng Xiaoping and his "capitalist roaders" staged a political coup.
There is one world leader who is determined to stop these 'false Western values' being forced on to his society - a society that has traditional family values. That leader is Putin. He specifically mentioned this problem for Russia, in his 24 February 2022 address to the Russian people in relation to the Ukraine special military operation (see this video clip https://youtu.be/P5wQQUjPN8I ).
'Queer Theory' - a sub category of Critical Theory has been traced back to the theories of the podophile philosopher Foucault (1926-1984)
Applied Queer Theory is what is happening at Disney, as reported by Adam Creighton below.
Disney embraces 'queer agenda'
ADAM CREIGHTON - WASHINGTON CORRESPONDENT
Entertainment giant Disney is facing a popular backlash after leaked videos of internal meetings revealed plans to make half of its characters identify as a racial minority or LGBTQI by the end of the year as part of a comprehensive new "queer agenda".
The company, which owns the rights to Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck, has dumped "ladies and gentlemen" as a greeting to avoid offending transgender children and set up a tracker to ensure it was creating enough "gender nonconforming" and "canonical trans characters".
"I'm here as the mother of two queer children, actually, one transgender child and one pansexual child, and also as a leader," declared Karey Burke, president of Disney's general entertainment content, to a recent "town hall" virtual meeting of Disney staff, extolling a push for greater LGBTQI representation.
In another of the videos, leaked to US journalist Christopher Ruth, senior TV producer Latoya Raveneau revealed her "not-at-all-secret gay agenda".
"I was just, wherever I could, adding queerness," she said. "No one would stop me, and no one was trying to stop me."
Disney diversity and inclusion manager Vivian Ware meanwhile explained the rationale for dumping the traditional "ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls" greeting. "We don't want to just assume because someone might be, in our interpretation, may be presenting as female, but they may not want to be called princess," she said.
A third video showed production co-ordinator Allen March saying Disney's tracker would monitor the number of "gender nonconforming characters", "canonical trans characters", and "canonical bisexual characters".
The revelations, potentially leaked as reprisal against Disney, come amid a debate across the US over a new law in Republican controlled Florida, which outlawed discussions of sexual orientation and gender identity at schools with students between kindergarten and Year 3.
Dubbed the "Don't Say Gay" law by opponents and denounced by the Biden administration as "hateful and harmful", it also bolstered parents' rights to sue a school if it didn't comply.
Signed into law on Monday by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis after weeks of debate in the state parliament, some of Disney's staff walked off the job last week in protest, demanding Disney support the "LGBTQIA+ community by stopping construction and investment in the state of Florida until hateful legislation is repealed".
Initially reluctant to become involved, chief executive Bob Chapek earlier this week condemned the law, urging courts to strike it down, prompting a war of words with the state's Governor - widely seen as a contender for the Republican presidential nomination in 2024 - who highlighted Disney's record of business in China.
"This state is governed by the interests of the people of the state of Florida. It is not based on the demands of California corporate executives," Mr DeSantis said.
Polls suggest most Americans, including a majority of Democrats, support the law.
Comedian Amy Schumer and other celebrities chanted "gay, gay, gay" after giving a speech at the Oscars on Sunday, overshadowed by Will Smith's slap of Chris Rock, to show their disapproval of the law, perhaps the most controversial state law in a generation.
Disney, whose share price has dropped about 23 per cent over the past 12 months, hasn't yet responded formally to the leaked videos, which add to an increasingly bitter national debate between Democrats and Republicans about parents' rights over curriculum in government schools.
School districts in Florida, Tennessee and other Republican controlled jurisdictions last year sought to remove books about race, sex and gender from school reading lists and school libraries, prompting accusations of book banning by Democrats.
Florida parent January Littlejohn, whose 13-year-old daughter was put in a school gender transition program without her knowledge, spoke out against the gender identity programs in November, fuelling support for what became known as the Parental Rights in Education Bill.
The plan changed her daughter's name and pronouns, bathroom preferences, and gave her the option to bunk with boys on school field trips in keeping with the policy of Leon County Schools, a district that includes 32,000 students in the Tallahassee region of Florida, Ms Littlejohn said.
