The Walt Disney Company continues to hemorrhage money and customers in the name of wokeness; nevertheless, they seek to grab children’s attention at their most impressionable and malleable ages and shape them in their new image.
The company’s latest effort to steer kids away from “cisnormative” thinking comes in the form of an internet ad that encourages children to visit and join the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network (GLSEN) online. Part of their mission, as it were, is the authoring of “developmentally appropriate resources for educators to use throughout their school community.”
This has been dovetailed into the Drag Queen Story Hour, which, as it turns out, is a national organization started in San Francisco in 2015, rather than just an aberration. “DQSH is a global network of local organizations, each of which is independently managed and funded,” a description on its website reads.
“Drag Queen Story Hour is a fun and important program that celebrates diversity in the way that children may dress and act. It encourages children to look beyond gender stereotypes and embrace unfettered exploration of self. Programs like DQSH encourage acceptance of difference and help to prevent bullying, while providing an enjoyable literary experience,” said Judy Zuckerman, Director of Youth and Family Services, Brooklyn Public Library.
Writer and internet sleuth Christopher Rufo posted the ad in question on Wednesday.

Confuse and scare kids and then shame them as transphobic for being rightfully freaked out.

It’s creepy how badly they want access to children.

Man, Disney is like a junkie on this stuff.

In addition to its obsession with catering to a very small percentage of activist stakeholders rather than to its actual shareholders, Disney is also effectively pricing the average family out of its theme parks with the cost for everything from admission to bottled water having recently gone from obscenely high to downright offensive.
BizPac Review related some of the stories in a recent article.
“What has happened to Disney?” a reviewer asked on Tripadvisor. “They seem to be trying to extract as much money out of people as possible. Walt would be turning in his grave if he knew the current situation. We will never be visiting Disney again after this holiday. Shame on you Disney, you should be ashamed.”
Jason from Salt Lake City, Utah said, “I think there’s a lot of families that just can’t, simply can’t afford… to have that experience, and that’s kind of sad. Because, I think in the way that Disney started out, I think it was meant to be for everyone and it seems like it’s becoming a bit more exclusive.”
“There’s a lot of families in the middle class and working class, blue-collar families who are still going to be spending that money because they want to give it to their kids,” Cochran stated. “I think Disney takes advantage of that.”
Some customers and shareholders have urged Disney to get back to the basics of entertainment and halt the storming of Cinderella’s castle with their slings and arrows of wokeness.
“Here’s a suggestion for Disney CEO Bob Chapek: Get back to business – that is, excellence in storytelling – and stop wasting shareholders’ money on political crusades that have nothing to do with Disney’s business,” shareholder, economist and entrepreneur Ray Keating said. “We all have the right to have our voices heard on issues, but not on the shareholders’ dime.”
The company has also squared off more than once with both Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and the Florida state legislature.
