One Million Moms Boycotts Pixar's Onward Over LGBTQ Character

Onward

The group claims that "Disney is attempting to desensitize our children by normalizing the LGBTQ lifestyle."

One Million Moms is once again up in arms over "Disney pushing the LGBTQ agenda on families."

The socially conservative advocacy group created by the American Family Association -- designated a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center -- has launched a petition to ban Onward, the first Disney/Pixar film to feature a clearly LGBTQ character.

This character, Officer Specter, reveals that she has a same-sex partner through a casual line of dialogue in the animated fantasy, which centers on two elven brothers who use magic to attempt to resurrect their late father.

"My girlfriend's daughter got me pulling my hair out," a sympathetic Specter tells a driver she pulled over, who was stressed by the behavior of his girlfriend's sons. The character is voiced by lesbian actor Lena Waithe.

One Million Moms said the inclusion of Specter is one of "numerous attempts by Disney to indoctrinate children with the LGBTQ agenda discretely and now more overtly."

Historically, the group has boycotted films like Finding Dory and Toy Story 4 for including background characters that appear to be lesbian couples.

One Million Moms is a frequent boycotter of pro-LGBTQ initiatives ranging from Hallmark to gender-inclusive Mattel dolls. The group usually fails in its calls to action. And despite its title, it has fewer than 5,000 followers on Twitter.

At the time of this article's publication, just over 20,000 people had signed a petition to boycott Onward.

For those who want to support Onward and LGBTQ-inclusive children's entertainment, the film comes out March 6. Watch the trailer below.
