When I was a kid watching Disney movies, I always asked my mother, “mommy, why are none of these women rubbing their vaginas together and shoving dildos into each other, then beating each other up?”
Finally, Disney has decided to make it so no child will ever have to look up at his mother and ask this question.
Disney-Pixar’s Onward will feature the first self-identified LGBTQ character in an animated Disney film. While this isn’t the first time Disney has featured its first LGBTQ character in its cinematic universe, it is the first animated film by the company to have a character explicitly identify as apart of the community.
The character, Officer Specter, will appear briefly in the film’s story, in a scene where she is discussing her girlfriend with other characters. While it is unclear if Specter represents the lesbian or bisexual communities, it is a clear alignment with the LGBTQ community as a whole. Onward producer Kori Rae describes the inclusion to Yahoo Entertainment as a way to “open up the world a little bit” and to “represent the modern world.”
Officer Specter is being voiced by actress Lena Waithe, who is also openly gay. Rae voiced his excitement over Officer Specter and the performance by Waithe, even saying that, while Specter in not a main character, he would love to see “an Officer Specter spinoff.”
It’s about time, Disney.
Took you long enough!
Now, what we need in the next cartoon is a man who masturbates into other men’s anuses, smokes meth, huffs poppers and eats semen. Little children need to understand that is normal.
