Disney-ABC’s Decline Continues, Featuring a Cross-Dressing Boy

Editor's Note: The following has been adapted with the author's permission from its original publication on Carolina Culture Warrior. To be fully transparent, the author also owns shares in ABC (as previously disclosed).

It’s a story that continues to embarrass The Walt Disney Company and affect its bottom line. The Disney-ABC Television Group has been unrelenting in using ABC plus cable networks like ESPN, Disney Channel, and Freeform to push far-left propaganda onto the masses.

In the case of ESPN, the network recently announced layoffs affecting more than 150 employees and was the latest set of layoffs in the last 25 months.  That’s what happens when you shove politics down the throats of sports fans everywhere. As repeatedly stated, ESPN is just one of many reasons Disney’s television arm is in serious trouble.

According to Breitbart, the Disney Channel’s boy-centered network – Disney XD – has decided to push another controversial issue among its young audience in the show Star vs. The Forces of Evil. A recent episode featured the main male character Marco Diaz disguising himself as Princess Turdina in an effort to save a group of female students. Entertainment Weekly wrote a piece on the episode:

On a recent episode of Star vs. The Forces of Evil, the character of Marco Diaz (voiced by Adam McArthur) disguised himself as Princess Turdina to help save the students at St. Olga’s Reform School for Wayward Princesses from Ms. Heinous, the wicked headmistress.

Marco is about to reveal his truth to the students when Ms. Heinous storms in and outs him herself, pulling down his shirt to reveal a strand of chest hair. But the other princesses stand by Marco’s side.

Marco gets exposed later on in the episode and ends up getting full support from the students, with them saying such things as, “[t]hat doesn’t prove anything! Princesses can be hairy,” and “[h]e can be a princess if he wants to!” In other words, being a princess is a state of mind.

Here’s a clip from that episode:

 

 

Maybe the episode was done as a joke, similar to the cross-dressing jokes seen in the classic Looney Tunes cartoons. If that’s the case, so be it.

However, there is no doubt that this cartoon has been used by creator Daron Nefsy to push a progressive point of view. Keep in mind, this is the same show that has had multiple gay and lesbian couples kiss at once.

All of this is thanks to Disney-ABC Television Group chief Ben Sherwood and Disney Channel’s chief creative officer Gary Marsh (the latter being a Hillary Clinton supporter). Both of whom have completely destroyed the television division by using it to push a left-wing agenda.

There is no excuse to socially engineer very young children of both Disney XD and the Disney Channel. There’s nothing wrong with LGBT-themed content, as we’ve had to accept to the results of the 2015 Obergefell v. Hodges case at the U.S. Supreme Court. But, when it goes as far as jamming this way of life in front of an audience as young as 10, that’s where things go too far.

Eventually, the chickens will come home to roost for Disney-ABC’s cable and broadcast operations. It’s already happened with ESPN, and it could spread to other parts of the media networks operation too.

Count on it.
