Report: Disney will ‘take action’ against Texas for order calling ‘sex-change’ procedures for children ‘child abuse’

The foundation for Walt Disney’s multibillion multinational dollar Disney Empire was providing wholesome entertainment for children. Not so anymore. Seems that the Prince of Wokeness kissed Snow White and both have armed themselves with a bunch of AR-15s and are going after Gregg Abbott, Governor of Texas.  The Blaze.com news reports that Disney will take action against Texas for order defining as ‘child abuse’ certain ‘sex-change’ procedures on what are generically and imprecisely referred to as “transgender children.”

Procedures that could be considered ‘child abuse’ under Abbott’s order include castration, surgery to remove male genitals, surgeries to remove the female reproductive system, plastic surgeries to construct artificial genitals, so-called “top surgery” to remove female breasts, or any procedure that removes a “healthy or non-diseased body part or tissue” from children when not medically necessary. Providing cross-sex hormones to children including puberty blockers, unnatural doses of testosterone for females, and unnatural doses of estrogen for males also potentially constitutes child abuse under Abbott’s order. Disney’s chief human resources officer, Paul Richardson, refers to these medical procedures as “gender-affirming care.”

A separate post on Foxnews.com, Transgender surgery for children constitutes child abuse, Texas commissioner rules, states: “Transgender surgery on the genitals of a child constitutes child abuse under Texas law, according to the head of the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS). Genital mutilation of a child through reassignment surgery is child abuse, subject to all rules and procedures pertaining to child abuse,” DFPS Commissioner Jaime Masters wrote in a letter to Governor Greg Abbott on Wednesday. Earlier this month, Abbott had requested clarification on the issue from DFPS, which is responsible for investigating charges of abuse, neglect, or exploitation of children, elderly adults, and adults with disabilities.”

Returning to the Blaze posting, “The Daily Wire’s Megan Basham reports that Disney CEO Bob Chapek led a company-wide meeting on Monday in which he apologized again for the company’s initial neutrality toward Florida’s Parental Rights in Education Bill, which would ban teaching children in kindergarten through third grade about sexual orientation and gender identity. So-called activists advancing such ‘gender affirming care’ have viperously and deceptively yet cleverly, for those committed to not thinking and not being informed, given the Education Bill the moniker “don’t say gay bill.”

Basham reports that Chapek thanked LGBT!+ employees for their feedback, admitted he made mistakes regarding the company’s response to the Florida bill, and also said, “The pain this community experienced was not just about this one piece of legislation but about not being there anytime this community has been hurt.”

The meeting reportedly featured a panel with speakers from LGBTQ+ activist groups and an address from Nadine Smith, the executive director of Equality Florida. A Disney staffer who spoke to the Daily Wire reportedly said the panel discussion was “about wanting Disney to indoctrinate kids.”

The Blaze report continues: “After the discussion, Richardson announced Disney will “take action” against Texas Republican Governor Greg Abbott’s order to have the state’s Department of Family and Protective Services investigate reports of gender-dysphoric children undergoing “sex change” procedures as child abuse. “Because of our presence in Texas, we want you to know that we’ve signed on to the Human Rights Campaign’s letter opposing the Texas bill that criminalizes parents who provide for their transgender children gender affirming care,” Richardson said, according to the Daily Wire.”

The Human Rights Campaign, an LGBTQ+ activist organization, purchased an ad in the Dallas Morning News earlier this month announcing that more than 60 major companies had signed on to its open letter opposing alleged “hateful attacks” against transgender people from Abbott and Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton. Other than trying to intimidate businesses and bureaucrats and signing a letter, Richardson did not define what action Disney would take.

The Blaze report concludes: “The ad declares “discrimination is bad for business.” It states, “the recent attempt to criminalize a parent for helping their transgender child access medically necessary, age-appropriate healthcare in the state of Texas goes against the values of our companies. It’s not just wrong, it has an impact on our employees, our customers, their families and our work.” Companies that signed on to the letter include Apple, Capital One, Dropbox, Google, IBM, IKEA, Meta, Microsoft, and more.”

    good for greg abbott. i dont think any child should be involved in sex education until they are old enough to consent…in other words until high school when they are old enough to understand what is going on. and this includes heterosexual teaching. let kids stay kids.

    Having taken my grandchildren to Disney theme parks in the past, I assure you this will NEVER happen again. I have also canceled the Disney Channel.
    Walt Disney is surely turning over in his grave regarding what has happened to his once idyllic company!

    Everyone should stop going to any Disney theme parks in California or Florida or anywhere. The head of Disney is a person who needs to be removed and replaced and if his or her board agrees with him or her they need to be replaced

    My family used to go to Disneyland all the time. We had season passes. We’ve been to Disney World multiple times. NO MORE! Walt is rolling over in his grave. The best way to deal with Disney is to never give them a dime of my money again. That includes the Parks, Disney+, movies, Stores, products,etc.

    The level of LUNACY that is required to call these procedures “gender affirming care” is astounding; I don’t think I’m exaggerating by suggesting that this would be akin to referring to Hitler’s “Final Solution” as a “reasonable approach”. The only possible justification for this tortured leap of illogic seems to be the prevention of hurt feelings on the small “community” of people,who MUST have everyone’s celebratory acceptance of whatever choice they have made for themselves, in their own lives! Usually, this magnanimity is not extended to others, as charges of …ist, or …ism (fill in the blanks), usually are liberally spread about (perhaps that’s why they are called liberals today). It seems to me that the more they are confronted by reality, the more shrill, militant and vindictive they become! I would say “how sad”, but folks who operate that way to force “Groupthink” on us (or else), are not very sympathetic creatures!

    You are what you are at birth, created by God to serve him in that form until he returns to gather all his children. God does not make mistakes, he did not make a mistake with you. He made you for his purposes and He is always beside you. He knows the hearts of people and those that condone and promote this do not know God or his word. They are trapped by the things in and of this world and have lost sight of what awaits them. May the angels of the Lord surround and protect you all your days.

    Hilarious to see these hypocrites calling someone out. Are you kidding me Disney? Your woke agenda is going to hurt your bottom line big time. Look for much Shorter lines at your garbage theme parks. Knotts Berry farm blows you away anyhow.

    No child can make a decision to have a sex change unless they were born with both semesters.
    Must be 18+ to drink alcohol. 16+ to drive a car, 18 to buy cigarettes. But 6 to have a permanent sex change?

Pelosi Snaps When Asked About Baby Formula Shortage

Published

on

Nancy Pelosi

On Sunday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) snapped when asked about comments from Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), who criticized President Biden’s decision to send baby formula to the southern border as the United States suffers from a baby formula shortage.

“Joe Biden continues to put America LAST by shipping pallets of baby formula to the southern border as American families face empty shelves,” Stefanik wrote on Twitter. “This is unacceptable. American mothers and their babies shouldn’t suffer because of the #BidenBorderCrisis.”

Pelosi was asked about Stefanik’s comments during an interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week.”

“As usual, her statement is totally irresponsible,” Pelosi said. “Babies are crying. We need to get them food. And the president has — now what we’re doing this week in the Congress is, again, Bobby Scott, chair of the Education and Labor Committee, that’s the jurisdiction that will lower some of the regulations, et cetera, so that it’s easier to buy it… We must do something as quickly as possible, but as safely as possible, and use caution, for these babies. But we have to move quickly to do that. And part of this is, again, the supply chain issue.”

Stefanik responded to Pelosi on Twitter, writing: “As usual, your LEADERSHIP is totally irresponsible. Babies are crying. We need to get them food.”

Biden’s Incoming Press Secretary Laughs When Asked About Baby Formula Crisis

Published

on

Karine Jean-Pierre

On Wednesday, incoming White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said that the infant formula shortage is a “top priority” for the Biden administration but laughed as she admitted to reporters that she didn’t know who was in charge of handling the crisis of mothers being unable to feed their babies.

As noted by RNC Research on Twitter, “In 25 states, 40-50% of baby formula products are OUT OF STOCK. In 5 states, over 50% of formula is OUT OF STOCK.”

“On baby formula, there have been severe shortages throughout much of the country over many weeks and months but particularly the last couple of weeks, what is the administration doing? What can you do?” a reporter asked Jean-Pierre.

“That’s something certainly we’ve been tracking,” Jean-Pierre replied. “Ensuring that infant formula is safe and available for families across the country is a top priority for the White House and this administration. We know that Abbott’s voluntary recall of infant formula products has led to some Americans being unable to access other critical medical food supply. This is an urgent issue that the FDA and White House are working 24/7 to address.”

“Who is running point on the formula issue at the White House? You mentioned the White House is involved,” another reporter asked.

“At the White House, I don’t know,” Jean-Pierre said while laughing. “I can find out for you and get you a person who is running point.”

Jean-Pierre is currently the Biden administration’s Principal Deputy Press Secretary, but she will officially replace Jen Psaki as White House Press Secretary on Friday, May 13.
