Quite the hubbub has been made of late about a blog accusing the mega successful Disney hit “Frozen of peddling the “Homosexual agenda.” It’s a strange post to be sure, and naturally there have been a lot of opinions about it. Some think she’s crazy for suggesting Frozen has any hidden messages, and some maybe even think she’s right, but don’t see any problem with Disney sending that underlying message. For my part I had a very different reaction than others to the blog. My question to Mrs. Katherine Skaggs is, what took you so long to figure it out? Disney has sent subliminal and not so subliminal messages to kids for years. For decades they have been subtly sending kids subversive ideas in the guise of “wholesome family entertainment.” Don’t believe me? well pull your head out of the sands, people. ‘Cause here are 6 lessons Parents apparently never realized were taught in those clever cartoons.
6. Rob from the rich to give to the poor
You wanna talk liberal agenda? you wanna talk sending messages to kids? Want to talk about demonizing good, hard-working people? “Robin Hood” isn’t even subliminal. It’s right out in front. The rich people are portrayed as bumbling, greedy jerks oppressing the poor. You and I both know that rich people worked hard for every penny they earned. they’re not bumbling idiots. Yet parents are fine with kids watching this controversial film over the last several decades, and are they surprised “class warfare” is a thing. In a truly wholesome cartoon, Robin Hood would stop stealing from good, hard-working people, and tell the poor to suck it up and get a job.
5. It’s okay to hurt people as long as you think they deserve it.
In “Toy Story,” Woody and Buzz get stuck over at nasty Sid’s house. amid the chaos that ensues, Woody attempts a rescue, by getting his friend’s attention. They have the rescue all set to go, until they decide, amid next to no evidence, that Woody doesn’t deserve to be saved, because he obviously killed Buzz. So they condemn Woody to torture and death at Sid’s. Later they throw him into traffic in a second effort to kill him. Then they realize that Buzz was in fact alive. Then and only then does Rex exclaim “NOW I HAVE GUILT!” Because before, it was obviously okay to kill Woody. Eye for an eye, right kids!?!? How can parents let this awful messaging slide!?!?
4. You’re only in trouble if you get caught
One of the most memorable lines in the movie “Aladdin,” the title character lets slip a sense of morality that no self-respecting parent wants their kids to hear. And guess what? After all that petty theft, after touching forbidden treasure and talking to forbidden princesses, and stealing a magic lamp and a magic carpet and hiding behind his all-powerful genie, and lying to the girl of his dreams (because let’s face it. Aladdin is a thieving, lying schmuck) what happens? He gets the girl, gets the genie, and gets to rule the kingdom (oh, and I won’t even go into this awful subliminal message of big government controlling everything clearly being a good thing. Aladdin is clearly poison to kids)
3. Snow White’s 7 Boy Toys
You wanna talk “gay agenda?” Let’s talk 7 men in a secluded cottage in the woods. Singing and dancing, whistling while they work, dealing with who knows what back in the forest. And what happens when a woman finally shows up? It’s not like they’re suddenly fighting tooth and nail for the affection of this pale beauty. Oh sure, they’re friendly enough. They dance together, they sing. But that’s as far as they go. And when Mr. Charming comes along and saves her from the spell, the dwarfs are like “whatevs. Glad we can go back to it just bein’ us guys!”
2. Everything about “Beauty and the Beast”
You wanna talk normalizing stuff that shouldn’t be perceived as normal? Look no further than “Beauty and the Beast,” which was another Disney film to get nominated for a surprising amount of awards. And it is way more subversive than Frozen hoped to be. There’s undertones of homosexuality, bestiality, and promiscuity. You name it, it’s there. I’m not just talking about Belles Wolf-man fetish. I’m talking Candlesticks making love to feather dusters, men drinking out of boys cups, and guys being forced to wear women’s underwear. remember that song “If you Seek Amy” with its undertones of both boys and girls wanting to get with Britney?” Well LeFou sings a song with similar undertones about Gaston. It’s obvious that Cogsworth swings both ways too. It’s subtle, but they couldn’t get their agenda past me. “Beauty and the Beast” is truly the worst kind of entertainment one can subject their children to.
1. Parents are wrong. Teenagers are right. Marry the first cute guy you meet.
Every girls favorite Disney movie for a long time had to be “the Little Mermaid.” The movie about the most spoiled rotten brat in all of Disney history. In this movie, the title character at one point sings about all the great things she has in her life. Then she dismisses all of them “But who cares? No big deal. I want More!” Of course when her dad tries to give her some tough love, she swims off like the tiny brat she is, makes a deal with a witch that almost destroys the entire kingdom, all for a guy she’s never met. Then, after they barely survive that near fatal disaster, rather than being a good parent and teaching Ariel a lesson he basically says, “Yeah. My spoiled teenage daughter is right, and I was wrong.” And he lets the 16-year-old go off and marry the man who she has LITERALLY NEVER HAD A TWO WAY CONVERSATION WITH! if that isn’t a conspiracy against parents, well than I don’t know what is.
So there you have it. Now Katheryn, I’m sorry you missed it after all these years, but these are 6 awful lessons your children have learned from Disney. And we need to boycott, before it gets any worse, and our children decide … whatever it is Disney is apparently trying to get them to decide.
