Disney pushes 'critical race theory' in employee training materials: report

“Reimagine Tomorrow” program allegedly teaches “race consciousness”

A new report claims the Walt Disney Company is pushing "critical race theory" on its employees as part of an internal training program, teaching them "race consciousness" and other concepts to address "systemic racism" in the U.S.

Manhattan Institute fellow Christopher Rufo on Friday published what he says are a "trove of whistleblower documents" detailing a program titled "Reimagine Tomorrow."

Rudo also provides in his report what he says are primary-source documents that appear to be pages of a training manual.

"In the past year, Disney executives have elevated the ideology of critical race theory into a new corporate dogma, bombarded employees with trainings on 'systemic racism,' 'white privilege,' 'white fragility,' and 'white saviors,' and launched racially segregated 'affinity groups' at the company's headquarters," Rudo writes.

The documents, which are stamped with the Disney insignia, instruct viewers in tips on "becoming an ally" to black acquaintances, calling anti-racism education "an ongoing learning journey." 

Disney on Saturday confirmed with Just the News the document included in the Rufo's report were "internal documents" and provided the following response:

"These internal documents are being deliberately distorted as reflective of company policy, when in fact their purpose was to allow diversity of thought and discussion on the incredibly complex and challenging issues of race and discrimination that we as a society and companies nationwide are facing.

"The Disney brand has a long history of inclusivity, with stories that reflect acceptance and tolerance and celebrate people’s differences, as we have consistently demonstrated in such popular films as Moana, Coco, Black Panther, Soul and Raya and the Last Dragon, and as a global entertainment company we are committed to continuing to tell stories that reflect the rich diversity of the human experience."

The guide suggests that actions such as "disbelieving the experiences of people of color" can "fuel the underpinnings of discrimination" and urges participants to take part in discussion groups where they act out racial interactions between employees.  

The guide also offers "pro inclusion tips" such as “acknowledge that everyone has unconscious biases no matter who we are" and "listen to the experiences of others."

       "The book is replete with lines such as: “I have a girl brain but a boy body. This is called transgender. I was born this way!” Children too young to read are being introduced to the idea that their bodies can—and even should—be modified based on the way they feel. This is being done without the permission of mothers and fathers."

School board president runs ‘all-ages’ sex toy shop

The extent to which trans activists have been able to take over the public education system in such a small amount of time is frankly staggering.

The trend of so-called “transgender children” continues to escalate, and public schools—and public-school teachers—are at the forefront of the indoctrination and propaganda war.  

For example, Young America’s Foundation (YAF) recently reported that an anonymous tip to their Campus Bias Tip Line revealed that a first-grade teacher in the Bellingham School District of Washington read her 6-year-old students a transgender children’s book (yes, there are dozens of them now) titled I Am Jazz, the story of a “trans child” who eventually pursues transition.  

The book is replete with lines such as: “I have a girl brain but a boy body. This is called transgender. I was born this way!” Children too young to read are being introduced to the idea that their bodies can—and even should—be modified based on the way they feel. This is being done without the permission of mothers and fathers.  

Outraged parents emailed Jennifer Miller, the teacher; she responded by saying that the book is “available in our school library as part of our Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion collection.” Complaints to the school board were also ignored – and a bit of digging by YAF revealed that the president of the board, Jennifer Mason, owns and runs an “all-ages” sex toy shop called the “Wink Wink Boutique” and describes herself in her Instagram profile (which helpfully includes her preferred pronouns) as “Head Dildo.”

Miller’s store has previously hosted workshops titled “Strap-on Sex,” “Fat-Positive Sex,” “Anal Play 101,” and some that are too vulgar to be published here.

The Wink Wink Boutique’s profile describes the shop as “inclusive, all-ages” and “not creepy,” serving anyone over the age of 16 – but allows people of any age in the store. Mason, who has served on the board since 2017, appears unsympathetic to parental concerns. Local elections – for school board trustees and other positions – have become increasingly important as schools are colonized by the LGBT movement and concepts parents have never heard of are introduced to small children.

The extent to which trans activists have been able to take over the public education system in such a small amount of time is frankly staggering. In less than half a decade, gender ideology has gone from fringe to mainstream, and parents are finding it difficult to keep up. Many are discovering, belatedly, that their children have been told that it is possible to have a “girl brain in a boy’s body” or vice versa, whatever that means – and have bought in. Many children, for a wide range of reasons, decide to pursue “transition.” Teachers indoctrinating these children are destroying their lives.

Lego Unveils LGBTQ Play Set To Virtue Signal — and Conveniently Cash In On Pride Month

LEGO releases first LGBTQ Pride set because “everyone is awesome” / LGBTQ  Nation

Lego has unveiled a new LGBTQ play set to virtue signal ahead of Pride month.

The company announced the 346 piece “Everyone is Awesome!” set on Twitter.

“We’re super excited to reveal our new set – LEGO Everyone is Awesome! Because we celebrate every LEGO builder #LEGO #EveryoneIsAwesome,” Lego said in their post.

Vice President of Design at the LEGO Group Matthew Ashton wrote a lengthy statement about why he designed the play set, saying that there needs to be more LGBTQ representation for children.

“Being quite an effeminate kid, I was constantly told by different adults around me what I should and shouldn’t play with, that I needed to behave like a ‘real boy’ and to toughen up. I was dissuaded from doing the things that came most naturally to me. I think many of the adults around me were doing all of this to try to protect me from getting bullied, but I was actually fine with all the kids at school. All of that has had an impact on me in many ways; it was really exhausting and kicked my confidence,” he wrote.

“So, I think by taking small steps and having products like “Everyone is Awesome” out there and people representing the LGBTQIA+ community, it allows everybody to see that things do get better over time and there is a place for everybody. That’s what’s been so important to me in getting this set out with a message that we can be really proud of.”

Ashton explained that they added black and brown to represent those races, purple for drag queens, as well as the trans flag colors.

“We’ve made sure to include black and brown colors to represent the broad diversity of everyone within the LGBTQIA+ community. We’ve also added in the pale blue, white and pink to support and embrace the trans community as well. I purposely put the purple drag queen in as a clear nod to the fabulous side of the LGBTQIA+ community. I hope it’s a joy to build and a joy to look at, and hopefully it will bring a lot of joy to people’s lives,” Ashton wrote.

        "A new study published by Ramsey Solutions has found that 53% of those who took out student loans to pay for school say they regret doing so. In fact, 43% of borrowers said they regret going to college altogether."

https://noqreport.com/2021/05/17/new-study-finds-half-of-student-loan-borrowers-regret-going-into-debt/https://noqreport.com/2021/05/17/new-study-finds-half-of-student-loan-borrowers-regret-going-into-debt/

New Study Finds Half of Student Loan Borrowers Regret Going into Debt

Contrary to popular belief, government guaranteed loans are actually making things worse.

A new study published by Ramsey Solutions has found that 53% of those who took out student loans to pay for school say they regret doing so. In fact, 43% of borrowers said they regret going to college altogether.

“Student loans often lead to a sense of regret and feeling stuck,” the study concludes. “Those we surveyed feel ill-informed on alternative options to covering college costs. In fact, 71% of those who took out student loans to pay for school say they wish they’d been better educated about debt before taking it on.”

Student loan debt is certainly a massive burden, and many students are realizing that a college education doesn’t necessarily give them the competitive edge they expected. But there are other factors at play that can give us a better sense of why this is happening.

One of the main problems is the government’s involvement in the education system. When the government guarantees student loans, for example, it causes colleges to increase their tuition. Essentially, the government is subsidizing students and thus encouraging them to pursue higher education, even when that may not be the best fit for them. These subsidies lead to an artificially inflated demand, which leads to higher prices. So not only are students being misled about the value of a college education, they are also paying far more for it than they would in the absence of government interference.

And yet, when students graduate, many of them realize that their degree isn’t all that useful, and that they would have been better off pursuing a different educational pathway or entering the workforce earlier in life. This is a really hard situation to be in, and it’s no wonder they feel a sense of regret.

But while individuals should certainly be held responsible for their own decisions, it would be a mistake to overlook the role that the government played in creating this problem. After all, it was the government who coaxed them into attending college with easy money. And let’s be honest, it’s hard to refuse generous loans and grants when you’re 18 years old and everyone in your life is telling you that college is the best path to take.

         “I identify as non-binary,” she is quoted as saying, “but because that hasn’t hit the general consciousness of the adult industry, I say ‘girl,’ because that’s what people who want to buy my content will be looking for.”

Columbia Prep students and parents reel after class on ‘porn literacy’

Ron Milner (@RonMilnerBoodle) | Twitter
 
Parents at the posh Columbia Grammar & Preparatory School are outraged they were never told of a fourth “R” being added to the curriculum: raunch.

In addition to the usual reading, ‘riting and ‘rithmetic, the school this month launched lessons on porn — without informing families or allowing them to opt out, parents fumed.

When juniors at the $47,000-a-year Manhattan school showed up for a health and sexuality workshop, most thought it was “just going to be about condoms or birth control,” a student told The Post.

Instead, it was something called “Pornography Literacy: An intersectional focus on mainstream porn,” taught by Justine Ang Fonte, who’s the director of Health & Wellness at another elite prep school, Dalton.

The often-explicit slide presentation and lecture by Fonte to the 120 boys and girls included lessons on how porn takes care of “three big male vulnerabilities”; statistics on the “orgasm gap” showing straight women have far fewer orgasms with their partners than gay men or women; and photos of partially-nude women, some in bondage, to analyze “what is porn and what is art.”

Fonte’s presentation, some of which was seen by The Post, included a list of the most searched pornographic terms of 2019, including “creampie,” “anal,” “gangbang,” “stepmom” and more.

One slide cited various porn genres such as “incest-themed,” consensual or “vanilla,” “barely legal,” and “kink and BDSM” (which included “waterboard electro” torture porn as an example).

“We were all like, ‘What?'” a female student said. “Everyone was texting each other, ‘What the hell is this? It’s so stupid.’ Everyone knows about porn. The worst part of it was that it took place not long before the AP tests and I had to miss both my AP classes for this.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

One part of the porn presentation involved something called the “marketability of Only Fans,” the hot new app used mostly for sex work. One slide included a photo of a pretty young woman who appeared to be promoting OnlyFans-type work.

“I identify as non-binary,” she is quoted as saying, “but because that hasn’t hit the general consciousness of the adult industry, I say ‘girl,’ because that’s what people who want to buy my content will be looking for.”

Children’s Show ‘Blue’s Clues’ Features Pride Parade, Cartoon Drag Queen, Children Explaining Pride Flags

“Blue’s Clues & You,” which is a Nick Jr. cartoon for young children, recently featured an LGBT pride parade with non-binary animals and a cartoon drag queen to celebrate Pride Month.

The parade features a cartoon version of Nina West, which is the drag name of Andrew Levitt, who narrates as float after float of LGBT animals passes by. First is a lesbian gator family, followed by a gay bear family; after them come non-binary dolphins, transgender beavers, as well various other asexual, bisexual, and pansexual animals.

“Love is love is love, you see, and everyone should love proudly and we’ll all go marching in the big parade!” the drag queen sings.

Disney Channel classic ‘The Proud Family’ gets woke reboot with new gay dads characters

And even better, the two gay dads – one of which is white, while the other is black – are raising a budding BLM/Antifa supporter.
 

Another favorite kids show for the last generation of youngsters is falling victim to yet more militant wokeness. Last month, Entertainment Weekly finally unveiled the new, LGBTQ-as-hell characters from its upcoming Proud Family reboot. Yes, the show now has an interracial gay dad couple, who, might we add, are the proud parents of another new character, a budding social justice activist.

Well this certainly puts the Proud in Proud Family.

The reboot, which is set to air on DisneyPlus in 2022, makes no bones about its commitment to the radical, anti-traditional family spirit of the age. Just look at the show’s name, The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder. Of course, the show lives up to the euphemism, with EW announcing that gay Hollywood actor Zachary Quinto and trans actor Billy Porter will be playing an interracial gay couple.

        "Research reveals that 60% of youth who pursue a transgender or non-binary lifestyle are highly likely to attempt self-harm, and an astounding 40% have contemplated suicide. This data is very telling — something is wrong..."

https://www.lifesitenews.com/opinion/gender-transition-is-a-cosmetic-farce-with-devastating-impact

Gender ‘transition’ is a cosmetic farce with devastating impact

We need more leaders to step up and secure our Judeo-Christian values — people who will hold true to the science of biology and the belief that we’re created by God for a specific purpose.

The sudden and inexplicable rise of transgenderism in our youth today should cause pause, and we must reflect on the greater meaning. Is there really a sudden spike in gender dysphoria where there has never been one before, or is this just a cause-du-jour foisted on our impressionable youth?

Abigail Shrier, author of Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters, recently gave a fantastic presentation at Hillsdale College regarding this phenomenon. Her point, as she alludes to in the title of her book, is that this sexual revolution is causing irreversible harm. The long-lasting damage is both mental and physical, as young men and women face the dangers of hormone therapy and the irrevocable mutilation caused by transition surgery. Despite this evidence, transgenderism is on the rise.

Transgender advocacy groups’ push for transgender rights over the past several years has become an all-out assault on our traditional views. Consider the legal fight by the College of the Ozarks as they battle the premise that biological males should be allowed to shower with female students, simply because they state that they identify as female. This comes after Joe Biden signed the executive order titled, “Preventing and Combating Discrimination on the Basis of Gender Identity or Sexual Orientation”. Or consider the young women in Connecticut fighting to stop biological males from competing in girls’ sports.

Our traditional Judeo-Christian values and morals are under siege. In its place is a morally-blank slate where drag queens have story time with preschoolers, extolling the virtues of their queer sexuality, and where young, impressionable men and women believe that gender dysphoria is common.

This isn’t healthy, nor is it helpful to our youth. Anyone who’s gone through puberty knows how challenging it is to face the influx of hormones, thoughts, and questions about your own sexuality, let alone muddle through an onslaught of social media posts telling you to become something other than your own biological sex.

Research reveals that 60% of youth who pursue a transgender or non-binary lifestyle are highly likely to attempt self-harm, and an astounding 40% have contemplated suicide. This data is very telling — something is wrong with this approach to sexuality. It hasn’t resulted in happier and healthier young adults, rather the opposite. Our youth are confused and hurting.

Yet, trans activists continue to peddle the lie that this is a healthy decision to make, despite running counter to every natural indicator of who we have been created to be. Yes, there are girls who will act like “tom-boys”. Does that mean they need to transition from being a girl to become a boy? No. There are boys who are more effeminate than others, does that make them a girl? No, of course not.

       “LGBT activists claim it’s “discriminatory” to reserve female competitive sports for actual females, but scientific research affirms that testosterone suppression does not eliminate all the physical advantages that come with male physiology.”

        Totally irrelevant. Keep focused, and keep the boys, or if you prefer, the faux girls, away from the real girls.

https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/desantis-defies-ncaa-threats-over-womens-sports-to-hell-with-these-events

DeSantis defies NCAA threats over women’s sports: ‘To hell with these events’

'You can’t be cowed by these organizations, or particularly by woke corporations, from doing the right thing.'
 
Boycott threats by institutions like the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) cannot be allowed to intimidate public officials from doing the right thing, Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis told Fox News primetime host Tucker Carlson Tuesday.

DeSantis signed into law this week the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act, which excludes biological males who claim transgender status from competing with the opposite sex in sex-specific athletic programs. The law is meant to protect female high-school and college athletes from having competitive and scholarship opportunities undermined by male students who claim to be “transgender women.”

“As these bills were going through various legislatures, I remember the NCAA put out a statement saying any state that enacts this, we’re not going to hold events there. And so I called the Speaker of the House in Florida and I said, ‘Did you hear what they said?’ And he’s like, ‘Yeah.’ I said, ‘We definitely got to get this done,’” DeSantis recounted to Carlson. “You can’t be cowed by these organizations, or particularly by woke corporations, from doing the right thing.”

“And so my view was throughout this whole time, we have to protect our girls, it is discriminatory to force them to compete against biological males,” he continued. “And so if the price of having a tournament is that I have to deny equal opportunity to hundreds of thousands of young girl and women athletes throughout Florida, I am much more willing to stand with the girls. And to hell with these events.”

The governor added that he does not expect Florida to be punished for defying outside pressure, because “we just made it clear. We’re standing with our folks, we’re gonna do the right thing. And so if corporations want to come in and try to bully us around, they are going to go nowhere. It’s going to be like hitting their head against a brick wall.”

LGBT activists claim it’s “discriminatory” to reserve female competitive sports for actual females, but scientific research affirms that testosterone suppression does not eliminate all the physical advantages that come with male physiology.
