A religious group in the United States is lobbying against the latest Toy Story movie, claiming it contains ‘dangerous’ lesbian content.

SBS News shares that a Christian organisation called, One Million Mums, is campaigning against Toy Story 4 because the inclusion of same-sex parents in one scene leaves families “blindsided.”

“The scene is subtle in order to desensitise children,” spokesperson Monica Cole said in a statement.

“But it is obvious that the child has two mothers, and they are parenting together.”

The scene in question in the popular Disney-Pixar animation depicts a lesbian couple – in the background – dropping their daughter off at day care. The same couple is then picking their daughter up later in the day.

“It was a noticeably small scene with the sole purpose of attempting to normalize this lifestyle,” Cole continued.

“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.”

The organisation’s petition, which has over 12,000 signatures, reads: “I do not appreciate Disney including LGBTQ content in the children’s movie Toy Story 4. There has been a deliberate lack of mentioning this content. Therefore, families are blindsided intentionally by your company.”

It concludes: “Actions such as this make me continue to distrust Disney.” Twitter users are not concerned by the content at all

Have you watched the movie yet? What did you think?

  • Didn’t notice it myself when watching the movie. And definitely don’t see the big deal in it? Even if the kids do see it, there shouldn’t be an issue, there is same sex couples in the real world. Why hide it from them?

  • Most people wouldn’t even notice it. Young children definitely wouldn’t unless it was discussed with them afterwards

  • Watched the movie but didn’t notice the scene. I presume most wouldn’t have unless it was pointed out.

  • Seriously? I have not seen the movie yet but can’t believe this is even being highlighted.

  • What they are doing is unchristian. Weren’t we taught it’s better to turn the other cheek. There is nothing wrong with that scene. It’s not like it showed them in bed. Grow up people and look at your own lives before you start picking

  • Look, I’m a Christian and I have mixed feelings about same sex couples. But people need to realise that this is a thing now and we need to be open and accepting and show love to everyone we meet no matter what. Kicking up a fuss about this is not showing love and actually gives people the complete wrong idea about Christianity. Above all it should be about love and acceptance.

  • I missed it in the background so I’m sure most kids would have missed it too…

  • What a storm in a teacup – Toy story is for kids and kids don’t notice these things unless they get brainwashed by their parents about it.

  • what a joke alot of kids probably would not even pick that up who really cares if 2 mums were picking up a child some parents so over react its just stupid

  • That’s a joke right?
    We took our 3 year old to the movies to see it. I didn’t notice it and even if I did it’s not a noticeable thing anyway.
    Imagine if we said this:
    Omg! Toy story is disgusting! Bonnie’s parents are in a straight relationship. That’s so horrible and dangerous.

    See? Sounds absolutely stupid just like these people do saying a same sex couple in a movie is ‘dangerous’.

  • Geez these religious people really get worked up about nothing, kid’s would not even notice it anyway so they are up in arms about nothing. Anyway if it normalizes same sex marriage, well good, it is normal these days, so what, as long as kids get cared for and loved who are other’s to judge.

  • shame Toy Story didn’t make this a bigger part of the movie or more obvious than just a back ground image.

    This is the norm for society and I applaud Toy Story creators for including it albeit in a tiny way – kids find out that their school friends have 2 mum’s or 2 dads or parents are separate – kids don’t care how many parents you have, it’s just the parents who care.

    I think this group is making a mountain out of a molehill, they might do better focusing their energy on something more worthwhile!

  • I haven’t seen the movie, but I hardly think same sex parents collecting their child is worth getting all upset about, they obviously have small lives

  • I haven’t seen the movie, but my kids did. Didn’t hear them talking about it.
    We’re Christians, but don’t think same sex parents are dangerous, we have same sex friends. Personally I think as a Christian we should not judge, but love on all despite their differences.
