New Disney children’s show ‘Baymax’ features transgender moment, suggests men can menstruate

0

The latest twist in the ongoing Disney saga centers around “Baymax,” a new Disney Plus series based on the 2014 animated film “Big Hero 6.” The scene in question centers on the main character, a robot, asking for help with feminine hygiene products.

In the brief clip, first shared by activist Christopher Rufo and now streaming in full on Disney Plus, Baymax is seen standing in the feminine hygiene aisle of a store, looking puzzled as he watches the shelves of tampons and towels. Unsure of what he is looking at, the robot asks the woman next to him what products she would recommend.

Listen to CBN News’ brand new morning podcast, Quick Start:

“Oh, uh – well, those are the tampons I usually use,” she replies, looking confused.

After Baymax thanks the woman for her help, another lady tells him she prefers towels. At that point, another person – who looks like a man and wears a T-shirt with a transgender flag on it – adds, “I still have the ones with the wings.

As the group gathered around Baymax continues to grow, others add their opinions.

A woman told the mischievous healthcare robot to “don’t perfume or bleach if you can” and a father told her, “Yo, my daughter loves this,” holding another brand of tampons or pads.

The impetus for the scene comes at the start of the 10-minute episode when Baymax discovers a 12-year-old girl in her school’s “all-gender restroom” as she begins her first menstrual cycle and is not prepared.

Towards the end, Baymax comforts the girl, who fears losing her childhood before she is ready. He tells her that she’s still a kid and that she shouldn’t be overwhelmed with starting her menstrual cycle because it’s “just biology”.

The episode that is sure to be controversial comes as The Walt Disney Company comes under the microscope of Christians and conservatives after the brand’s CEO, Bob Chapek, launched a campaign against Florida’s Parental Rights in Education Act. , a bill banning public school educators from teaching. children about gender identity and sexual orientation from kindergarten to third grade.

Back-and-forth between Disney and Florida lawmakers led state politicians to dissolve the Reedy Creek Improvement District – a single district backed in the 1960s allowing Walt Disney World Resort to operate on its own and independent of local government. You can read more about it here.

The subtle inclusion of a transgender message – the indirect suggestion that people other than women can menstruate – comes after Disney executives told an internal employee summit that they would like to see the LGBT agenda pushed more widely in Disney shows and movies.

The most recent movie release to achieve this goal is “Lightyear,” the Disney Pixar film based on the character Buzz Lightyear from the “Toy Story” saga. The new movie, which did not do well at the box office, features a homosexual kiss between two women in a romantic relationship.

During the internal meeting, Chapek – whose contract just renewed for another three years – pledged to be “a better ally for the LGBTQ+ community” and Karey Burke, president of Disney’s general entertainment, told her colleagues that she would like to see “many, many, many characters LGBTQIA” in Disney projects moving forward.

This message was also echoed by Disney executive producer LaToya Raveanu, who said at the same internal summit that company executives have been “so welcoming to love, my gay agenda not at all secret”, adding: “Wherever I could I was basically adding weirdness to the show, if you see anything weird on the show, ‘The Proud Family’, nobody would stop me and nobody was trying to stop me .

Raveanu’s comment on “The Proud Family” referred to a recent reboot of the series from the early 2000s. The new iteration of the animated show to focus on two men involved in a romantic relationship raising an adopted teenage daughter.
