One Million Moms want to boycott Disney because of this same-sex cartoon couple

Shadowy yet discernibly inept hate group One Million Moms hasn’t been terribly active this summer.

Frankly, we were beginning to worry the disused basement in which its leader does her bidding had flooded, water-logging her Smith-Corona and temporarily derailing her crusade against all things unChristian.

But now she’s back, firing off inchoate press releases against the Disney cartoon “Doc McStuffins,” which features an interracial lesbian couple voiced by Wanda Sykes and Portia de Rossi.

As you can see, the episode looks highly provocative and poisonous:

The episode, titled “The Emergency Plan,” marks the first time a Disney Junior Show has ever featured same-sex parents in any capacity.

One Million Moms, eager to demonstrate that she’s still the human equivalent of an anorectal abscess, pounced on the episode, which GLAAD hailed as “groundbreaking.”

“Controversial topics and lifestyle choices should be left up to the parents to discuss and Disney Junior should not introduce this to young child,” the press release states.

“Just because an issue may be legal or because some are choosing a lifestyle doesn’t make it morally correct. Disney should stick to entertaining and providing family-friendly programming instead of pushing an agenda.”

The press release strongly advises furious parents to rise up in a pinch-faced stew of fishy-eyed hatred to rant and rail against the episode.

“Families tuning in to watch this children’s program will encounter a premature discussion on sexual orientation that is completely unnecessary,” the press release states.

“If producers air this episode as originally planned, then conservative families will have no choice but to no longer watch Disney Channel Network in their homes so they can avoid previews, commercials, and reruns. Families will not be able to allow Disney Channel in their homes if the network veers away from family-friendly entertainment.”

Meanwhile, show creator Chris Nee defends the episode thus:

“I always envision Doc McStuffins as a show about what it means to accept everyone as part of our communities.

As part of a two-mom family, I’m proud to have an episode that reflects my son’s world, and shows everyone that love is love in McStuffinsville.”

In a not-at-all surprising turn of events, GLAAD’s Sarah Kate Ellis praised the episode.

“Children like mine deserve the chance to see their families reflected on TV, and this episode does just that in a beautiful and positive way,” she writes.

“Shows like this reflect our real world, and today that includes the many children being raised by gay and lesbian parents who are all going to celebrate this story.”

As Pink News points out, One Million Moms currently have 3,722 Twitter followers, and most of them are male, so…

    I can only dream that their boycott will make the interminable lines at the Disney theme parks shorter.

    I wonder if Disney will contact her to thank her for the free publicity

  • Kangol

    Is it because it’s a same-sex family, because some of the cartoons depict brown people, or both?

    One Million Moms aka Susan in Kentucky needs to get a life! Nobody cares what your useless opinions are

    LOL!!!

    The entire Southern Baptist Organization tried to boycott Disney over their having “Gay Days” and THAT failed and they cancelled it.

    So if an organization with actual millions couldn’t put a dent in Disney, it’s hilarious for a group of 45 people to think they can. This is obviously just a ploy for them hoping that a little press attention will get some bigots to donate money to them.

    Thanks for the heads-up! Now I will be sure to find this episode to watch with my daughter, whose favorite show is Doc McStuffins. Guess maybe that wasn’t the intended result of OMM’s rant, but… LOL
