The television network Disney Junior is receiving criticism for a storyline featured on a recent episode of one of its hit children’s shows involving a main character deciding to cross-dress.
In a recent episode of the “Muppet Babies,” which aired July 23, Gonzo wanted to go to the royal ball that his friends were hosting dressed as a princess but did not feel comfortable doing so because he did not want to defy traditional gender roles.
When Gonzo indicated a desire to “wear one of those princess dresses” to the royal ball, the girls told him that he was “not supposed to wear a dress” and instead wear a knight costume like the rest of the boys.
Upon finding a dejected Gonzo, his “Fairy Ratfather” grants him his wish. And with the wave of a magic wand, Gonzo immediately dons a princess dress and glass slippers.
Gonzo arrived at the party dressed in the costume, introducing himself as “Gonzorella.”
His friends failed to realize that Gonzorella and Gonzo are the same, with Miss Piggy describing the newcomer as “a mysterious new princess.” The other attendees credited “Gonzorella” for adding life to the otherwise dull party.
Because the Muppet abandoned the royal ball just as he was slated to return to his normal form at “cake-o-clock,” his friends never realized that Gonzo was, in fact, Gonzorella.
After the royal ball, Gonzo met with his friends, who lamented that he missed the occasion because they “met the most amazing princess, but they ran away.” When Miss Piggy pointed out that “all they left behind” was a glass slipper, Gonzo informed his friends that “there’s something I need to tell you.”
“The princess who came to your ball tonight was me,” he explained as he grabbed the glass slipper and transformed back into a princess. When Miss Piggy asked why he didn’t say so, Gonzo said, “because you all expected me to look a certain way.”
“I don’t want you to be upset with me,” he added.
Miss Piggy apologized, proclaiming that “it wasn’t very nice of us to tell you what to wear to our ball.”
The other girl, Summer, assured Gonzo that “you’re our friend, and we love you any way you are.”
After the episode aired, conservatives quickly panned Disney Junior for exposing the LGBT agenda to small children.
“I can’t believe I’m tweeting this but … they are pushing the trans agenda on children via muppet babies,” conservative commentator Owens wrote in a tweet Sunday. “This is sick and PERVERTED. Everyone should be disturbed by predatory cartoons meant to usher children into gender dysphoria.”
The above comes from an August 3rd story by the Christian Post.
Two Bible passages came to mind after I read this article:
If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.
Woe to those who call evil good and good evil,
who put darkness for light and light for darkness,
who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.
Just because a show is marketed to children doesn’t mean it actually is for them. Crass and vulgar references often abound and it is best to keep kids from wallowing in or near moral trash, even of they don’t understand it.
Looks like a lacy alb or surplice. Explain the difference. The most traddy, anti-LGBT clerics seem to be the ones who love the lace.
The lace and beautiful vestments that priests who offer the The True Mass of All Times wear them to glorify Our Lord who deserves nothing but the best as the priest offers the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass my friend. Why don’t you give it a try and see for yourself you might just think hey, this is like a piece of Heaven that may just save my soul.
You kbow, there used to be this sorta meme where folks would guess how many posts it would take ’til someone called someone else a “nazi”. It didnt really matter what the actual subject was but the default was three posts.
For this site, it seems to be 3 now too for the anti TLM posters.
Wondering, The priest brings Christ to the altar, at Mass, for us– a tremendous miracle. Respect Our Lord.
Such an unnecessary comment about the Traditional Latin Mass and “lace”, our saints wore lace what did that make them?
Jesus didn’t wear lace.
Wondering– You should not criticize holy vestments. And you should respect the Jewish vestments that Our Lord wore. Posters should respect all forms of our Holy Mass, including the beautiful Tridentine Latin Mass.
Tell that to Romulus who frequently denigrates the mythical clown Mass.
No More– You should respect all forms of the Holy Mass.
And he didn’t drive a car so maybe you should get rid of yours. Oh, and your air conditioning, microwave, washing machine…
What does any of that have to do with wearing effeminate garments? I look with skepticism and suspicion at any priest or seminarian who is fond of wearing lace. Lace on women fine. It doesn’t belong on men.
Wondeing– You need to respect Catholic vestments. They are not “effeminate.” Vestments are holy, blessed sacred garments, and worn by priests for sacred duties only.
And you probably have a problem with cassocks too. Get over it.
Wondering– Cassocks and surplices are holy vestments, too. You need respect for all holy Church vestments.
