I’m a mother of 3 children, and lives in Discovery Bay. We all love Disney and have going to the Parks since the children were babies. I’ve been watching Disney movies for as long as I can remember. When the Disney movie Wreck-it-Ralph came into theatres my kids were so excited to see it (well, so was I). In most Disney movies you would see the occasional hidden mickey or a hidden Disney characters in the movies. But behind the storyline and the super catchy J-Pop tunes this movie had a dark secret. The messages in this movie was different. They were hidden LGBT references. In one of the scenes the main character Ralph talks about the how King of Candy’s palace is very pink. Ralph making conversation say’s “I see your a fan of pink”. King Candy answers back “It’s Salmon, pink would have been a bad choice for a palace made of candy.” I let that one slide my kids didn’t know the difference between salmon and pink. In the next scene one the characters in the movie the character Ralph grabs King Candy, shakes him, and calls him a “nelly wafer”. Most kids watching the movie wouldn’t no what it means. But I did. For people who don’t know when entered into Google the definition is: “Offensive Slang: Used as a disparaging term for an effeminate homosexual man.” I was so close to walking out theatre but since I was with my kids I had to retrain self-control, so I just had to shut my mouth and let it slide. Ralph finally says goodbye Vanellope Von Schweetz and it’s finally time to say goodbye to this horrible movie. Of course my kids loved the movie, but I came out of burning, why would Disney put LGBT references in a children’s movie? What should have been enjoyable movie experience but I felt marginalized and diminished by it.I don’t want my kids introduced to the LGBT community. It’s not that I’m trying to be a Disney villain (homophobia) or something it’s just that I don’t want my kids to be introduced to the LGBT community. I also don’t understand why people want a LGBT Disney characters in movies/tv shows. There’s really no point, Disney represents classic ideals and old fashioned values not the new age. Take Snow White for example: Evil Queen: tries to kill princess, scheming, jealous and cruel.Snow White: beautiful, helpless, in need of rescue (by a man). The Prince: handsome, brave, powerful and in search of a women who is beautiful (no other attributes necessary).Wreck-it-Ralph didn’t even end up with Vanellope Von Schweetz.I would not suggest to watch this movie.
