If you've ever been to Disneyland as a kid or as a parent bringing your children, you've heard the general park greeting that includes the phrase "girls and boys." Those are pretty basic words that you would hear in any classroom, theme park, or kids' event. But Disney has chosen to do away with "boys and girls" because it's apparently not inclusive enough.
Disney Is No Longer Using the Phrase "Boys and Girls" To Be More Inclusive
Vivian Ware, Disney's diversity and inclusivity manager, announced in a video conference call that parkgoers will no longer the phrases "boys and girls" and "ladies and gentleman," which are now considered "gendered greetings." Disney has made this choice in an attempt to create a more welcoming environment, because apparently "boys and girls" can be considered borderline offensive.
"We trained – we provided training for all of our cast members in relationship to that. So now they know it's ‘Hello, everyone,’ or ‘Hello, friends,'" Ware said on the call. "I love the fact that it's opened up the creativity, the opportunity for our cast members to look at that. We don't want to just assume because someone might be, in our interpretation, may be presenting as female, but they may not want to be called ‘princess.'"
"So now they know it's ‘Hello, everyone,’ or ‘Hello, friends."
These new phrases will be heard in general park greetings as well as announcements for the fireworks show at the Magic Kingdom in Florida.
This conference call with Ware was recorded in June 2021, but a more recent all-hands meeting was recorded in which general entertainment president Karey Burke admitted that it's her explicit mission to bring the LGBT agenda to Disney on a mass scale.
"Our leadership over there has been so welcoming to my not-so-secret gay agenda," she said. "Wherever I could I was adding queerness. No one would stop me and no one was trying to stop me."
She also talked about her kids being an inspiration for her self-proclaimed gay agenda. "'I'm here as the mother of two queer children, actually, one transgender child and one pansexual child, and also as a leader,' she said.
"Wherever I could I was adding queerness."
Disney has also made it clear that they're upping the number of gay characters in its films. This is all coming to a head as Disney employees staged a walkout of the company headquarters in order to protest the so-called Don't Say Gay bill in Florida, which incidentally doesn't contain anything about being gay. It simply calls for teachers to stop talking about sexual orientation in the classroom with children up through the third grade.
It's concerning that Disney is at the forefront of the trans agenda, particularly considering the fact that this company has an enormous impact on children and the way they see the world. Removing "boy and girls" from the park's vocabulary sounds innocent enough, but it's only the beginning of pushing gender theory onto impressionable children who deserve an innocent childhood.
