‘Happiest place on Earth’ bans gender
Karl Salzmann • March 30,
The Walt Disney Company is eliminating the words “ladies,” “gentlemen,” “boys,” and “girls” in its theme parks, Diversity and Inclusion Manager Vivian Ware announced.
Ware said in a company video, first reported by City Journal writer Christopher F. Rufo, that Disney has already eliminated “all of the gendered greetings in relationship to our live spiels, so we no longer say, ‘Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls.'” Now, she said, the company is in the process of “changing over those recorded messages” and “working with merchandise, working with food and beverage” to eliminate gender references.
Disney needs to go genderless, Ware said, to “create that magical moment” for people who may not identify with traditional gender roles.
The release of the Ware video comes weeks after the Disney corporation expressed its opposition to a Florida bill that prohibits teaching kindergartners through third-graders about sexual orientation and gender identity.
“In Florida, our policy’s going to be based on the best interest of Florida citizens, not on the musing of woke corporations,” Gov. Ron DeSantis (R.), who has since signed the bill into law, responded.
A majority of Florida voters, including Democratic primary voters, support the law.
Twitter users ridiculed Ware’s comments in replies to Rufo’s post.
“This song is canceled,” former Washington Free Beacon writer Cameron Cawthorne posted above a link to “A Real Boy,” a scene from the Disney classic Pinocchio.
The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
