Series Features a Robot Getting Tampon Advice From a Trans Man – Opinion

Wednesday’s episode of the Laura Ingraham show on Fox News brought you the story of a new Disney+ series called BaymaxA robot voiced by a man asks a woman in a supermarket what products are best for her period. A few other shoppers also join the fray to offer their suggestions, even though it appears that the male is wearing a trans-flag on his shirt.

Ingraham points out that “Disney+’s only warning for the show is about flashing white sequences and patterns,” but gives no warning about the embedded trans ideology.  My kids are older now, but I doubt I’d be thrilled at them viewing this when they were 5 years old. Watch:

Ingraham asked Christopher Rufo (senior fellow at Manhattan Institute), what had happened at the end. He answered:

Well, it’s very subtle, but what you see is that it’s a trans man wearing a shirt made out of the colors and design of the transgender flag, and the subtle message that they’re promoting is that men can get periods. This is a talking point among trans activists and what Disney has done, and we know this because I’ve obtained internal videos, is that they want to promote trans ideology, first through the background characters.

He explains that it gets even worse:

They’ve actually created a computer program to track these so-called gender non-conforming background characters, and then slowly but surely start to re-engineer the discourse around children and sexuality. And this is just one specific example of exactly what they’re doing—and they’re doing it on purpose.

The problem isn’t just one small clip from a series, Rufo charges. It’s that Disney’s plan is to promote trans ideology in all its offerings.

Disney is retextualizing certain older films, denouncing the fact that they are racist and non-inclusive. Radical activists are holding the company hostage. Ron DeSantis is known for removing Disney’s special status in recent months. Disney’s stock price has tumbled $50 billion, and its public approval rating in the last year has gone from 77 to 33 percent favorability.

Disney doesn’t seem to care what customers think.

And so even despite all of these major warning signs telling Disney it’s time to course correct, they can’t because the radical activists at the ground level within the company have held the corporate executives and the content hostage, and that’s why we’re seeing this today.

Contrast Disney’s condemnation of some of its older films with Paramount’s bolder recent statement on the issue of content from the past. As RedState’s Brandon Morse reports, Paramount Chief Paramount CEO Bob Bakish said:

You can have things made at a different time or reflect different sensibilities. I don’t believe in censoring art that was made historically, that’s probably a mistake.

Disney seems to have other ideas. This is even as some of Disney’s own employees are lashing out at the company’s woke agenda, decrying the company’s decision to announce it will fund travel costs for abortion seekers.

Of course, not everyone is critical of Disney’s shoving woke ideology down our throats. The Daily Beast dutifully reported, “Conservative idiots are losing their minds over a scene in ‘Baymax’ that includes a transmasculine character shopping in the tampon aisle. The rest of the internet is celebrating.”

Beast, there is no celebration in the rest of this internet. While there are plenty of tweets in support of Disney’s move, there are also many critics:

What sex your identify with, how you sleep, what you wear and whether you menstruate are all irrelevant to me. What so many liberals don’t understand, though, is that I don’t want sexuality in any form pushed on little kids. Florida’s “don’t say gay law,” which says nothing of the sort, merely codified that teachers shouldn’t be telling elementary kids about sex and sexual ideology; it’s completely inappropriate.  My kids are older, as I said, but when they were young I can tell you I would strongly object to them being subject to shows on menstruation, male “periods,” or any other adult topic.

Let kids be kids, for God’s sake.
