Disney Launches Campaign to Promote Sex Change Surgeries for Children
Company vows to 'take action' against Texas over new anti-child abuse laws
Disney is launching a campaign to promote life-altering sex-change surgeries for children and is vowing to "take action" against anyone who tries to protect minors from undergoing transgender medical proceedures.
Sources reportedly told The Daily Wire that Disney leadership announced the plan during a company-wide meeting with staffers on Monday.
The company's leaders told staffers that they will be "taking action" against Texas over the state’s order to investigate sex-change operations on children as child abuse.
The meeting was led by Disney CEO Bob Chapek.
He reportedly started by reiterating his apologies for the company’s initial refusal to take a public stand against Florida legislation that protects young children from adult themes at school.
The legislation bans classroom discussion about sexual orientation or gender identity with kindergarten- to third-graders enrolled in public schools.
According to the insider, Chapek said that he appreciates the feedback he’s received from "LGBTQIA+ employees" and admitted that he made mistakes in addressing the “Parents Rights in Education” bill.
However, he said that “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.”
Chapek then said that Disney leadership will be going on a “listening tour” of gay, transgender, and non-binary employees.
After his comments, a panel of LGBT activists gave a talk one Disney staffer said was “about wanting Disney to indoctrinate kids.”
This was followed by an address from Nadine Smith of the non-profit group, Equality Florida.
Following the panel, Disney’s Chief Human Resources Officer, Paul Richardson, announced that the company is planning to “take action” against Texas Republican Governor Greg Abbott’s order to the state’s Department of Family and Protective Services to investigate those performing some sex-change surgeries or treatments on children.
“Because of our presence in Texas,” Richardson reportedly said, “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.”
"Gender-affirming care" is a term used by the Left to refer to life-altering sex change proceedures, which can range from puberty-blocking drugs to surgically removing a child's genitals.
One employee described the presentations during the meeting as a strategy session for circumventing the will of mothers and fathers.
“These activist employees and outside organizations recognize Disney’s cultural significance,” he said, “They want to use the company to make an end-run around parents through content creation and political pressure.
"They see it as their mission to rescue the next generation from their conservative parents.”
As The Daily Wire previously reported, a group of companies has already come out in favor of trans surgeries and hormone treatments on children, including Apple, Macy’s, Ikea, and Google.
An ad signed by more than 60 businesses insists that “discrimination is bad for business.”
The ad goes on to say, “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.”
Unlike those companies, however, Disney’s key customer bases include parents, who may take issue with the company’s stance.
The Disney employee who blew the whistle said that he walked away from the meeting with one conclusion: “This is a complete institutional takeover.
"Disney is lost.”
