There was a time when Disney features were reliably wholesome, romantic and family-oriented, rather than vehicles for the agenda of recruiting children to homosexual behavior

Disney’s upcoming film Onward will be featuring an openly homosexual animated character, to be voiced by actress Lena Waithe.

The character, who will appear as a purple cyclops, will be a police officer who mentions her “girlfriend” when she pulls over a driver who was distracted by his girlfriend’s children, according to Slate.

“My girlfriend’s daughter got me pulling my hair out,” the character, Officer Specter, reportedly says, in a shameless nod to normalizing homosexuality for the very young, using a product parents have come to trust.

While Waithe is portraying the first animated character to be openly LGBTQ, Disney has featured a few other LGBTQ characters in their live-action films.

Interestingly, all these character appearances are very recent:

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker featured a same-sex kiss between two soldiers while Beauty and the Beast portrayed LeFou as a gay man.

Onward stars Tom Holland and Chris Pratt as brothers who undertake to magically resurrect their father for a day.

The cast also features Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Octavia Spencer, Tracey Ullman and Ali Wong. The film hits theaters on Friday, March 6.
