Of all the weird shit I’ve seen from the nutzoid Christian right (which, to be fair, is really just “the right”), the attacks on the Walt Disney Company over their criticism of Florida’s “Fuck You for Being Gay or Trans” bill and the state’s slimy, squamous governor, Ron DeSantis, as well as its declarations that its going to be friendlier to LGBTQ kids and adults in its parks and media, is some of the weirdest. I mean, it’s conservatives have bitched about pop culture for a long time, but this is just fucking weird.
It’s not like Disney World is gonna feature “Baloo’s Buggering Boat” ride or “Ariel’s Muff-Diving Adventure” or “Goofy’s Groomin’ Gang” show. What Disney did was say that they would work to repeal the cruel law after they were criticized for not speaking out before its passage. It’s essentially what every single corporation does all the time with legislation. Oil companies try to overturn laws that want to do some small thing about climate change, which, you know, is way, way more important than whether or not a teacher tells his 1st graders about happy gay penguins.
