Right wing fanatic Janet Porter calls Disney’s Gay Days “public displays of perversion”

Anti-gay activist Janet Porter

Right Wing Watch points up this charming radio bulletin from anti-gay activist Janet Porter that “the homosexual agenda is planning to once again descend on Disney World in Orlando, Florida to expose your children to far more than Mickey Mouse and Space Mountain.”

Porter warns listeners that “cross-dressing men will be among those parading public displays of perversion.”

In case you’ve never had the chance to experience Gay Days at Disney, allow me to set the story straight, if you will: Gay Days at Disney are no more “perverse” than any other day at a Disney theme park. I’ve been many times and it’s merely a day to underline the inclusiveness of the parks to gay and lesbian families. These families are interested in enjoying the Disney experience – not turning the day into some drag show.

It’s insulting that Porter, who I’m pretty sure has never attended a Disney “Gay Day,” would spout off about things she knows nothing about.

But then, that’s par for the course coming from her edge of the loony spectrum.

Listen to the icky message to her followers below.

Disney’s FROZEN becomes highest grossing animated film of all time

Disney’s Frozen has become the highest-grossing animated film of all time, and the number ten film  on the list for all movies.

From Variety:


The competition to beat was another Disney/Pixar title, “Toy Story 3,” which grossed $1.063 billion in 2010. “Frozen” earned $398.4 million domestically and $674 million internationally to take the title. In its run overseas, “Frozen” has become the top animated film in 27 territories. It has grossed $50.5 million in Japan thus far, and also broke into the top ten films of all time at the box office this weekend.

It was released more than four months ago in the U.S., where it had a late November opening. Since then, it has enjoyed both critical and major financial success, becoming the first billion-dollar film from Disney Animation Studios.

It won two Academy Awards as well, one for best animated film and the other for original song.

The soundtrack for Frozen has been #1 on Billboard’s album chart for the last eight weeks.


Disney World pulls funds from Boy Scouts of America over adult gay leaders ban

Disney World has decided that, in light of the Boy Scouts of America’s policy of barring adult gay leaders, the company will no longer donate to local scouting groups.

Boy Scouts of America says they are disappointed by the decision.

From OUT:

“We believe every child deserves the opportunity to be a part of the Scouting experience and we are disappointed in this decision because it will impact our ability to serve kids,” BSA spokesman Deron Smith said in a statement issued to the Associated Press Sunday.

The company’s decision became public after the leader of a Florida Boy Scout council let members know Disney was discontinuing its support. “According to [Walt Disney World], their views do not currently align with the BSA,” wrote Central Florida Council board president Robert Utsey. “We will continue to keep an open line of communication with them, but at this time, are unable to reverse their decision.” Scouts for Equality, a group working for full LGBT inclusion in the Boy Scouts, posted his email on its website.

Zach Wahls, a cofounder for Scouts for Equality, agreed with Disney’s decision. “We’re never happy to see Scouting suffer as a result of the BSA’s anti-gay policy, but Disney made the right decision to withhold support until Scouting is fully inclusive.”

Five year old Disney Channel star receives death threats

After the Disney Channel program introduced a lesbian couple as characters on the show “Good Luck Charlie,” the show’s five year old star received death threats on her Instagram fan page:

Talerico’s show, Good Luck Charlie, introduced the two characters, Susan and Cheryl, in an episode aired on Jan. 26.

Talerico’s real-life mother, Claire, notified Disney security after someone began posting messages on the actress’ Instagram account saying, “Die Mia, F*cking Die in hell! Kill yourself, you deserve to die.”

Police are currently investigating the threats.

The last episode of the series airs later this month after a 100 episode run.

Full song by Idina Menzel from Disney’s FROZEN – “Let It Go”

Broadway star Idina Menzel sings "Let It Go" in FROZEN

Broadway star Idina Menzel performs “Let It Go” in this full sequence from Disney’s epic comedy adventure Frozen.  After four weeks, the animated feature has grossed over $164 million worldwide.

Frozen features eight original songs from songwriting duo Kristen and Robert Lopez, including the gripping “Let It Go,” Elsa’s self-defining anthem.

‘Let It Go’ was written by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez (Robert’s work on Broadway includes the htis The Book of Mormon and Avenue Q).  Said Robert; ‘We wanted to write the biggest, beltiest diva number we could channel because we knew we had Idina Menzel – who just knocks it out of the park – and we knew her character Elsa was experiencing something epic in her life.’
