Lesbian behind Disney cartoon pushing LGBT to preschoolers: ‘We’re political’
August 9, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – One of the creators of a Disney cartoon that promoted same-sex "marriage" to preschoolers has admitted that they specifically aim to promote political messages on the show.

This corroborates statements Doc McStuffins writer Chris Nee made in a 2012 interview with AfterEllen.com. She said part of what she's doing with the show is making sure the characters are "accepting."
The show is about an aspiring doctor who "fixes" toys.
"I've never been anything but accepted in the world of writing kids' TV but I was surprised that Disney has been so beyond willing and excited to sort of publicize this part of my life and this part of who I am," she said. "That’s progress!"
"My son [Theo] has two moms and it's a huge part of my life as a human being and it's been an incredible part of the way that I see the world and the way I see characters and the way I want to create characters who are incredibly accepting of each other and whatever is happening in their life," Nee said.
"It's hard to know exactly where the boundaries are because they’re always changing in kids' TV," Nee said of whether a same-sex "marriage" would be portrayed on the show. "I will say I have been incredibly surprised by how supportive Disney has been in the process of looking for press for this show. That's a change."
Nee continued, "Disney has been happy to celebrate who I am and who my family is and when we talk about how my son is the inspiration of this show we're also talking about my family and my family is my partner Lisa, myself and [son] Theo. Kudos to Disney for that and I think we all know that the world continues to change."
In December 2016, Nee jokingly tweeted that President Obama should "kick" an unnamed person "in the balls" and "go for the kidney punch."
OBAMA FOR GODS SAKE, GO FOR THE EYES, PULL HIS HAIR, AND KICK HIM IN THE BALLS! But keep it class in all other respects. Sincerely, me.— Chris Nee (@chrisdocnee) December 16, 2016
I know it's not fair that I've loved Obama all these years for not being a street fighter, and now want him to go for the kidney punch.— Chris Nee (@chrisdocnee) December 16, 2016
She regularly tweets about progressive politics.
On the day of the pro-abortion Women's March, she tweeted:
As a Mom, as a woman, as a lesbian, as a writer, as a citizen, as a human, as a rebel - I have to believe today, not yesterday, is our truth— Chris Nee (@chrisdocnee) January 21, 2017
Former First Lady Michelle Obama voiced herself on an episode of Doc McStuffins when the show's protagnoist visits the White House.
During the last few days of the Obama administration, Nee tweeted a photo of herself, her son, and her "wife" with the former First Lady.
