One Million Moms — an anti-LGBTQ organization known for its boycotts of anything and everything inclusive — is once again riled up over a movie about toys.
The group is urging a boycott of Toy Story 4 over a small moment that many viewers may have missed. In the background of a scene involving the first day of kindergarten for the film's main child, Bonnie, two women drop off a girl at school. Later in the movie, the women pick up the girl and give her a hug.
"The scene is subtle in order ... to desensitize children. But it is obvious that the child has two mothers, and they are parenting together," One Million Moms wrote in its screed.
One Million Moms called the moment with the two mothers "dangerous" and a "subtle but obvious promotion of the LGBTQ lifestyle." The group also took issue with an "extremely unnecessary" remark made in the film about not hiding in a closet.
"These 'blink and you will miss' moments were included strictly to push an agenda," One Million Moms claimed in the petition.
"Toy Story 4 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. It is extremely common yet unnecessary."
"Disney has decided once again to be politically correct versus providing family-friendly entertainment. Disney should stick to entertaining instead of pushing an agenda and exposing children to controversial topics."
The Southern Poverty Law Center, a progressive organization that monitors bigotry, classifies the American Family Association, One Million Moms’ parent organization, as a hate group for the misleading information it spreads about LGBTQ people. The Million Moms group has a history of objecting to LGBTQ-inclusive media and advertising.
Earlier this year, the group went ballistic over the February cover of Parents magazine, which featured a same-sex couple — the first such cover in the publication’s 93-year history.
