(LifeSiteNews) — In lockstep with the LGBTQ agenda, Pixar’s new Toy Story spinoff film “Lightyear” is set to feature a “same-sex” kissing scene.
According to Variety, “Lightyear” is set to restore a same-sex kissing scene between two female characters that was initially axed from the movie by Disney executives. The decision to “restore” the scene was reportedly made after employees became outraged that Disney CEO Bob Chapek did not take a stronger stance against Florida’s Parental Rights in Education bill.
In a statement Variety attributes to “the LGBTQIA+ employees of Pixar and their allies,” the pro-LGBT workers claim that in addition to being outraged by Chapek’s conduct surrounding the Florida bill, they have also been consistently frustrated with Disney’s corporate executives in general, alleging that they have cut “nearly every moment of overtly gay affection” from Pixar’s films.
The workers’ frustration with Chapek in particular comes from what they perceive to be an insufficient condemnation of Florida’s education bill, which seeks to protect young school children from being taught radical sexual ideology. Thus far, Chapek not only publicly opposed the bill, but even pledged $5 million to the Human Rights Campaign and other so-called LGBT “rights” groups.
The bill itself, which has been dubbed the “Don’t Say Gay” bill by pro-LGBT critics, does not actually prohibit the use of the word gay but rather seeks to protect children of third-grade age or younger from being taught radical ideas regarding gender “identity” and sexual “orientation.”
“Classroom instruction by school personnel or third parties on sexual orientation or gender identity may not occur in kindergarten through grade 3 or in a manner that is not age appropriate or developmentally appropriate for students in accordance with state standards,” reads the bill’s text, which was passed in Florida’s Senate on March 8.
The bill further states that “school district personnel may not discourage or prohibit parental notification of and involvement in critical decisions affecting a student’s mental, emotional, or physical health or well-being,” including the adoption of a new “gender identity.”
Despite left-wing criticism, the proposed legislation has generated strong support from many Republicans, who have argued that schools should not be instructing young children about radical sexual ideology.
Republican state Senator Danny Burgess told NBC News that the bill reasserts the right of parents above school administrators with regard to their children.
“This bill says parents your right to raise your children does not end when they walk into a classroom. This bill recognizes that parents are not the enemy,” Burgess said.
“The bill simply says that there should be an age limit on certain discussions. It’s not a new concept, nor is it radical,” he added.
Jon Schweppe, director of policy at the American Principles Project, told The Daily Wire that Florida’s proposed legislation is “about respecting the rights of parents and protecting kids.”
“Parents shouldn’t have to fear sending their kids to public school in America, but they do because woke ideologues have become obsessed with teaching kids as young as five that they can change their gender.”
