The Far-Right homophobic action group One Million Moms has set its sights on children’s film Toy Story 4, after accusing the film of blindsiding families with lesbian scenes.

The action group who have a well-documented history of homophobia is now encouraging its members to boycott Pixar and Disney.

According to the group’s new campaign, “Disney Blindsides Families with Lesbian Scene in Toy Story 4” the “dangerous” scenes which include two mothers dropping their child off at school and then picking the child up and hugging them, were “kept quiet” by Disney in order to “expose” as many people as possible.
 
Monica Cole, who is a spokesperson for One Million Moms, said that “The scene is subtle in order to desensitise children. But it is obvious that the child has two mothers, and they are parenting together.”
 
“It was a noticeably small scene with the sole purpose of attempting to normalise this lifestyle,” Cole said. “Not to mention there was a brief comment made about not hiding in a closet also in the movie. Some children may not catch this reference, but it was extremely unnecessary as with the lesbian couple.”
 
Cole added, “Disney has decided once again to be politically correct versus providing family-friendly entertainment. Disney should stick to entertaining instead of pushing an agenda and exposing children to controversial topics.”
 
One Million Moms is an arm of the also infamously homophobic organisation American Family Association. The action group has a long history of anti-LGBTI campaigns, that include a JC Penney boycott for hiring Ellen DeGeneres as a spokesmodel, criticising Marvel & DC comics for featuring gay characters in their magazines, and recently calling on PBS to cancel children’s show Arthur for featuring a same-sex wedding.

Despite the group’s name, they reportedly only have a few thousands of members in the United States.
