An episode of a Disney cartoon for preschoolers normalizes homosexual relationships.
LifeSiteNews.com reports an Aug. 5 episode of the Disney Junior channel show “Doc McStuffins” featured a family headed by two lesbian “moms.”
“Doc McStuffins” is about a 7-year-old who wants to be a doctor and fixes her broken toys.
The show targets preschoolers and young children, and its website features child-friendly video games and print-out coloring pages.
The episode, called “The Emergency Plan,” is about a “family” of dolls forced to flee their house after an earthquake. The ostensible message of the episode is to teach children the importance of preparing for emergency situations, but the homosexual undertones are clear.
Wanda Sykes, the lesbian actress who plays one of the lesbian “parents” in the show, told GLAAD, the world’s largest homosexual advocacy group, that “with this episode, [my kids] see a family that looks like our family.”
“We’re two moms,” she said. “… it’s going to be very exciting for them to see our family represented.”
Chris McGee, the show’s producer, who is in a same-sex “marriage,” was interviewed by AfterEllen.com in 2012 about “Doc McStuffins.”
When asked if “subtle messages” about homosexuality are in the show, she replied, “Definitely.”
“My son (Theo) has two moms, and it’s a huge part of my life as a human being, and it’s been an incredible part of the way that I see the world and the way I see characters and the way I want to create characters who are incredibly accepting of each other and whatever is happening in their life,” McGee said.
