It’s Claire Chretien again. Get a life Claire. Wednesday’s headline reads: “Lesbian behind Disney’s LGBT show for preschoolers: ‘We’re political on Doc McStuffins’.” I will get back to Sister Claire shortly. But first, LifeSiteNews started a boycott yesterday of Disney. According to the boycott pledge:

In a first for Disney Junior, the channel that targets children 8 and under, a popular show featured a family with two “moms.” A recent Doc McStuffins episode shared the story of a “family” of dolls headed by two lesbians. They get separated during an earthquake without an emergency plan. They reunite in the end with a big, “family” hug.

It is no surprise to know that the show’s creator and executive producer, Chris Nee, is a lesbian who lives with her partner and has a son. She has said, while they won’t have gay storylines, she will provide subtle messages about sexual orientation into the storyline.

In other words, what else would LifeSiteNews expect from a lesbian but an inappropriate show recruiting children? Even the word family ends up in quotes. That is just sick. Who poured all of this shit into these heads?

I know that it will shock the weird ultra-orthodox Catholics at LifeSite but it is a fact of life that some children have two moms. It is also a fact of life that young kids have friends who have two moms. Presumably the people at LifeSiteNews would prefer some shaming based upon ancient screeds and the antiquated teachings of the Catholic Church.  

LifeSite wants people to believe that the reality is a corrupting influence. It might turn their own kids gay. It might also make them more accepting of gay people. They don’t want their kids more accepting of gay people because, well … because that might cause them to choose to be gay.

This is a constituency that has collectively pushed their fingers in their ears, tight, while shouting Nah-Nah-Nah-Nah-Nah. If it doesn’t conform to religious doctrine they don’t want to hear it.

The pledge concludes:

Send a strong message to Disney that children’s entertainment is no
place to promote a harmful sexual political agenda. Sign the boycott
petition now!

These people are batshit beyond redemption. What, how and to whom is the truth harmful? I would argue that a children’s show is precisely where there should be a message of inclusion and tolerance. The LifeSite set disapproves of gay people. You know what? That is their problem.

That brings me back to producer Chris Nee. Sister Claire writes:

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.

Oh dear. Claire does not approve. Nevertheless in both the US and Canada that is the law of the land and it is unlikely to change in either locale. Grownups know better. Claire’s approval is not necessary for same-sex marriage to be the legal equivalent of an opposite-sex marriage, which it is. Would Claire prefer that we ostracize the children of gay couples? Probably. Everyone must suffer because of those ancient screeds.

To prove her point, Claire embeds one of Ms. Nee’s tweets:

Claire Chretien will never, in her entire life, accomplish 10% of what Chris Nee has accomplished. Ms. Nee has one of the most enviable jobs in America and she is a long way from being finished with her career. Claire, on the other hand, is probably destined to be a good Catholic wife, unfulfilled and perpetually pregnant.

Claire actually proves the point with a lengthy quote from Nee:

“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.”

I might have used the same quotes myself. According to Claire, they establish the evil of both Nee and Disney. According to me they demonstrate Nee’s character and Disney’s corporate sense of responsibility.

The rest of Chretien’s drivel has nothing to do with the show or Disney. It’s a rather amateurish attempt to disparage Nee. Apparently she has way too much time on her hands because she has reviewed Nee’s entire Twitter timeline:

In December 2016, Nee jokingly tweeted that President Obama should “kick” an unnamed person “in the balls” and “go for the kidney punch.”

I have no idea what that was about. Nor do I know what Claire thinks she is proving.

She regularly tweets about progressive politics.

Claire, hon, people like you create progressives among us.

On the day of the pro-abortion Women’s March, she tweeted:

She mindlessly repeats the rhetoric. Most sane, intelligent people understand that pro-choice is not “pro-abortion.”

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.

Jealous Claire? And, yes, that is her wife. It does not require Claire Chretien’s approval or the approval of some prelate.

Nee is the producer of a forthcoming cartoon about a vampire ballerina, Vampirina. The series appears to be based off of books aimed at children three to five.

Very sinister. What does any of this crap have to do with a show on Disney that Chretien doesn’t like? It is irrelevant. For Ms. Chretien all she needs to know is that Chris Nee is gay. Nothing else matters because, according to lore, Ms. Nee is “objectively disordered.” The real disorder is Chretien’s lack of even the tiniest measure of critical thinking. Claire, the Kool-Aid is next to the new black Nikes.
