A religious group in the United States is lobbying against the latest Toy Story movie, claiming it contains ‘dangerous’ lesbian content.

SBS News shares that a Christian organisation called, One Million Mums, is campaigning against Toy Story 4 because the inclusion of same-sex parents in one scene leaves families “blindsided.”

“The scene is subtle in order to desensitise children,” spokesperson Monica Cole said in a statement.

“But it is obvious that the child has two mothers, and they are parenting together.”

The scene in question in the popular Disney-Pixar animation depicts a lesbian couple – in the background – dropping their daughter off at day care. The same couple is then picking their daughter up later in the day.

“It was a noticeably small scene with the sole purpose of attempting to normalize this lifestyle,” Cole continued.

“Not to mention there was a brief comment made about not hiding in a closet also in the movie. Some children may not catch this reference, but it was extremely unnecessary as with the lesbian couple.”

The organisation’s petition, which has over 12,000 signatures, reads: “I do not appreciate Disney including LGBTQ content in the children’s movie Toy Story 4. There has been a deliberate lack of mentioning this content. Therefore, families are blindsided intentionally by your company.”

It concludes: “Actions such as this make me continue to distrust Disney.” Twitter users are not concerned by the content at all

  • I have watched this movie and was quite perplexed by these claims as I couldn’t for the life of me remember a scene with lesbian parents. Now that it’s been pointed out to me, no wonder I didn’t remember it, it’s not a stand out. And who says they’re lesbians? Maybe mum and Aunty are doing pick up and drop off. A big hoo haa over nothing yet again


  • They need to get a life and leave others to live theirs as they wish.


  • These people clearly have nothing else in their life to worry about, so have to get all judgy on other people.


  • I haven’t seen the movie yet but what is wrong with same sex couples? My daughter has been taught to accept anyone no matter what religion, size, shape, colour or sexual orientation they are. Times have changed and it’s acceptable.


  • I didn’t notice it. They are really being a bit precious and ridiculous. Get over it.


  • Didn’t notice it myself when watching the movie. And definitely don’t see the big deal in it? Even if the kids do see it, there shouldn’t be an issue, there is same sex couples in the real world. Why hide it from them?


  • Most people wouldn’t even notice it. Young children definitely wouldn’t unless it was discussed with them afterwards


  • Watched the movie but didn’t notice the scene. I presume most wouldn’t have unless it was pointed out.


  • Seriously? I have not seen the movie yet but can’t believe this is even being highlighted.


  • What they are doing is unchristian. Weren’t we taught it’s better to turn the other cheek. There is nothing wrong with that scene. It’s not like it showed them in bed. Grow up people and look at your own lives before you start picking


  • Look, I’m a Christian and I have mixed feelings about same sex couples. But people need to realise that this is a thing now and we need to be open and accepting and show love to everyone we meet no matter what. Kicking up a fuss about this is not showing love and actually gives people the complete wrong idea about Christianity. Above all it should be about love and acceptance.


  • I missed it in the background so I’m sure most kids would have missed it too…


  • What a storm in a teacup – Toy story is for kids and kids don’t notice these things unless they get brainwashed by their parents about it.


  • So my sister and I have been together and picked up my kids from kindy …. does that make us lesbian mums ?? what a ‘explicit word’ joke !!!! Boycott Religion I say.


  • what a joke alot of kids probably would not even pick that up who really cares if 2 mums were picking up a child some parents so over react its just stupid
