QUEER VOICES

One Million Moms Is Freaking Out About This Gay Cartoon Kiss

Here we go again!

Right-wing watchdog group One Million Moms is freaking out again ― this time over the most subtle of same-sex kisses in an animated children’s program on the Disney Channel.

“Star vs. The Forces of Evil” featured the quiet moment during a montage of diverse kisses among different concert goers ― making it the first same-sex kiss on the Disney channel in an animated cartoon. 

And One Million Moms is not happy about it ― and they’re also up in arms about the apparent gay-inclusion in the upcoming Disney “Beauty and The Beast” film.

In response to the news surrounding both “Star vs. The Forces of Evil” and “Beauty and the Beast,” One Million Moms released this statement on their website.

This is the last place parents would expect their children to be confronted with content regarding sexual orientation. Issues of this nature are being introduced too early and too soon, and it is becoming extremely common and unnecessary. Disney has decided to be politically correct versus providing family-friendly entertainment. Disney should stick to entertaining instead of pushing an agenda. Conservative families need to urge Disney to avoid mature and controversial topics.

The conservative group is an offshoot of the American Family Association, an organization that is literally still trying to lead a boycott of Target over their policy that allows transgender people to use the bathroom that corresponds with their gender identity.

In the past, we’ve seen One Million Moms engage in similar alarmist campaigns over moments like this cartoon kiss, like an H&M ad where two women share a smooch and when Highlight’s for Children decided to include same-sex parents and in their publication.

So... keep fighting the good fight One Million Moms? Lol.
