Help Mike del Grande defeat pro-LGBT school board: LifeFunder

(LifeSiteNews) – With the recently-released Thor: Love and Thunder proving to be the Disney-owned Marvel Studios’ “gayest” movie yet, its eccentric director Taika Waititi is doubling down on the film’s LGBT content in the wake of its lackluster performance.

In 2019, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige announced that the fourth Thor installment would feature a subplot in which supporting character Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), now serving as “King” of the titular hero’s surviving Asgardian people on Earth, would set out to “find her queen.”

Three years later, that subplot did not make it to the final product, but Love and Thunder still satisfied LGBT activists’ demands of “representation” with dialogue references to Valkyrie’s bisexuality, and more significantly via alien sidekick Korg (voiced by Waititi himself), who is revealed to have two dads (contradicting the previous film, Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok), indicated to belong to a species comprised entirely of males who naturally reproduce together, and by the end of the film has a male partner of his own.

Speaking to LGBT magazine Out for the film’s July 8 release, Waititi declared that he enjoys LGBT stories because “we’re all queer. Just to varying degrees of where we are on the spectrum I think. I think, innately, humans have all got some degree of queerness in them.”

“With Thor, it’s great to be able to finally get Tessa’s character, and my character as well, where we’re both queer,” he added.

Waititi also gushed about the accolades he receives from the LGBT community: “I love it. I mean, I’m just amazed to hear what my friends think of me. I’ll be like, ‘Hey guys, you’re looking at a little gay icon over here,’ and it feels really amazing.”

General audiences are less receptive. Love and Thunder currently holds just a 67% critics score and 78% general audience score on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, with many panning the film as tonally incoherent, with Waititi’s trademark sense of humor undermining the dramatic weight of the conflict and the credibility of Thor himself (Chris Hemsworth) as a hero.

More significantly, despite being on track to bring in $500 million, once word-of-mouth circulated, the film suffered a second-weekend dropoff of 68%, the biggest decline from an opening weekend for the Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise so far.

There are countless reasons to conclude modern sex-education is less about critical thinking and more about indoctrinating and sexualizing children at as young an age as possible.

Consider these 3 questions: 

  • Why are politicians around the world pushing radical transgender theories on children as young as 5? 
  • Why is the World Health Organization calling for 4 year-olds to be taught how to masturbate?
  • Why are children in schools being shown graphic images of sex and told anything goes so long as consent is established, if not to encourage our sons and daughters to become sexually active? 

A sane society would try to shield impressionable children from becoming sexualized, and encourage them not to watch pornography, take puberty blockers or mutilate their genitalia, but our schools increasingly promote these behaviors.

In reality, the media, most politicians, and many education chiefs are obliterating a parent's ability to protect their child's innocence and identity. 

We must realize: these elites want children to have THEIR values, not YOURS. SIGN THE PLEDGE!

The results of this explicit, inappropriate sex-saturated culture and education have been startling: there have never been more children claiming to be transgender, gay, lesbian and bisexual, nor have we ever seen such high levels of sexual assaults by minors.

Countless politicians, media personalities and education chiefs are too busy promoting woke trends to realize that sexualizing minors amounts to grooming, and has devastating consequences in many cases.

Children whose inhibitions are broken down risk addiction to pornography, teenage pregnancy, STDs, gender dysphoria, online shaming, and a whole host of other negative outcomes. 

Parents, not the government, must be in control of what their child is taught about sex.

Just listen to the type of materials public schools in the U.S. are promoting: 

That's why we are asking you to sign the Parents' Pledge that you will pull your children out of sex-education classes if your school chooses to sexualize your child.

The Parents' Pledge is our best chance of winning back our children's schools before they're entirely lost to radical sex-obsessed teachers' unions who are foisting these curricula on teachers.

Do you really want other adults deciding what your child is exposed to? Of course not.

Please share this brand new grassroots Parents' Pledge with like-minded parents and join a growing movement of mothers and fathers who are wise to the threat of their child being led into sexual activity.

“This kind of fall cannot be blamed on a change in audience behavior in a post-pandemic world — Top Gun: Maverick delivered phenomenal holds — but can probably be attributed to Love and Thunder’s mediocre reviews, mixed fan reception, and the knowledge that the film will be available on the Disney+ streaming app 45 days after its theatrical debut,” Collider reports.

Starting in 2008 with Iron Man (prior to Disney’s acquisition of Marvel Entertainment), the Marvel Cinematic Universe was a massively successful series of superhero films, which much of its popularity attributed not only to the respectful adapting of comic-book source material and patiently-planned long-term storytelling, but also to its status as a consistent source of unifying escapism largely devoid of politics.

For years, however, LGBT activists have pestered Marvel and other entertainment companies for “representation” in their stories. Marvel first appeased these demands with a fleeting reference to same-sex dating in the grand finale to the MCU’s first saga, 2019’s Avengers: Endgame. Since then, LGBT elements have appeared in multiple follow-ups, including The Eternals, Loki, Hawkeye, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and now the latest Thor film.

The latest wave of Marvel projects has also forayed into racial identity politics, introducing various “diverse” successors to white and male heroes and using the streaming series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier to usher in Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) as a new Captain America who resents American iconography and views the United States as teeming with racists.
