Quote# 87070

How would you feel if you entered the Magic Kingdom anticipating a normal day of fun with your family only to witness thousands of same-sex couples holding hands, hugging, kissing and wearing tee-shirts that promoted their lifestyle?

LGBT (lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgender) activists converge on the Magic Kingdom the first Saturday of every June for an event called Gay Day at Disney.



Just like activists’ attempts to gain access to youthful minds through LGBT characters in video games they also want to impact a captured audience of tens of thousands of children during the first Saturday of Summer Break.

Last year Florida Family Association hired an aircraft company to pull a banner for ten hours the day before and ten hours the day of to warn families about this offensive event before they arrived at the park on Saturday.

The airplane banner influenced mainstream family attendance at Disney during Gay Day to DROP between 50% to 60%. We believe this aircraft banner warning to families SPARED TENS OF THOUSANDS of children from the unexpected exposure to this coming out party. This airplane banner is the most cost effective manner to warn families before they:

• Expose their children to same-sex revelry.

• Spend hundreds of dollars on tickets.

• Pay for parking.

• Commit a day for fun now ruined.

• Purchase food and novelties.

I wouldn't care, I don't go to Disneyland to look at the other people who have gone to Disneyland.

Sweet, so the best day to take my family there is the first Saturday of June. Shorter queues and fewer asshats.

Or.. alternate (perhaps real) translation:

"Hey gay guys, stop getting me all hot and bothered with your tight bodies and long, touchable hair and ... I AM NOT GAY (well, maybe only gay for Jesus) I AM NOT GAY... so stop making me all horny. Damn you all! "

Having visited Disney World at the age of 7, I can guarantee that children will not notice gay or lesbian couples in the least. Children are much too excited about the rides, the food, the souvenirs and the costumed characters.

You're not about protecting children, you bigot; you're trying to protect your own reality bubble.

And it's not going to work.

These people are so repulsive that I do not doubt for a second that it would do their kids more good to see some Mickey Mouse being fucked up the arse by Goofy than to spend another second in the same house as their repressed, hostile, meddlesome parents, stifling them with their noxious, creepy "family values", forming associations with "family" in the title like that gives them a free pass to be a bigoted arsehole and intimidate people.

Let me get this straight. We're talking about literally a magical fairyland populated by princes and princesses, characters who don't wear pants, decorated with all manner of tinsel and glitter the centerpiece of which is Cinderella's castle, which by the way stems from a story about a prince with such a keen eye for footwear he was able to identify his bride to be by her FABULOUS crystal shoe... and you're worried about gay influence?

Personally I'd LOVE to take my family to an openly-advertised "Gay Day" at Disney. Most likely the fundy families would all stay away.

I couldn't give a flying fuck at a rolling doghnut. A heterosexual rolling doghnut.

What if you took your culturally minded girlfriend to a performance of the New York City Ballet, only to realize that all the men and half the women on stage were gay?

Who gives a shit?

Do these people know that their favorite musician of yesteryear, Liberace, was as gay as it gets? If not gayer?

Addendum:
Maybe it's foreigner's ignorance, but when did Disney World become the Magical Kingdom? I thought that was the one beyond death...

How would you feel if you entered the Magic Kingdom anticipating a normal day of fun with your family only to witness thousands of bug-eyed religious fanatics, each one the only True Christian in the whole place, waving bibles, shouting how much they hate and fear everything, and wearing crosses that promote their lifestyle?

WTF are fundies doing at Disneyland in the first place? Shouldn't they be at one of those BibleLand or Dinosaur untruth parks? Or church, for Christ's sake?

BTW, as far as Disneyland Anaheim - Thursday is their "slow" day, if you're planning to go. Not by a whole lot, but the lines are somewhat shorter. I used to work there. *Clue - it's only "The Happiest Place on Earth" for the visitors. Employees do not wear the "Pixie Dust" for long. It's just a J - O - B.

Also - do these people have any idea how many gay people work for Disney? If not for them, I suspect the places would not be nearly so fabulous as they are.

I would feel cretinous if I entered the Magic Kingdom on any day.

FFA is just another hate group. I hope the SPLC has labeled them as such, just for my own satisfaction.

Also, the fact that this banner actually resulted in a drop in attendance of the event is disheartening.

And you know it influenced attendance how? I smell a little wishful thinking here.

Dude, they've been having Gay Day for what, like 20 years? More? You're hopelessly late to the party.

Or you could have spent the money on actual humanitarian aid that might have helped people with real problems.

Instead of doing something that doesn't change the current state of being (in other words, you just ensured that people who are ignorant of the existence of gay people remain ignorant of the existence of gay people for time being) and will inevitably fail in the future (gosh, people keep running into gay people later in their lives, what are the odds?)

Don't donate to Christian charities unless they can demonstrate that they spend the money on causes that actually have any kind of a real effect. These people seem to have a rather weird way of defining success.

{How would you feel if you entered the Magic Kingdom anticipating a normal day of fun with your family only to witness thousands of same-sex couples holding hands, hugging, kissing and wearing tee-shirts that promoted their lifestyle?}

Maybe thoughts of "Ugh, get a room!" would come to mind, then again I would think the same thing about heterosexual couples.

Your little banner stunt on the other hand would make me think "Ugh! Some ignorant cockroach has grown wings..."

Since my family hasn't been trained to hate gay people, we would continue to have a good time as we usually do.

To answer you're initial question.... It wouldn't bother me a single bit.

Now that you've mentioned it, when I do have children I'll make a point of making sure our trip to Disney (if we decide to go, they keep selling out my childhood with stupid sequels and whatnot) will have to coincide with Gay Day.

Unlike you, I'd like my children to be exposed to different kinds of people. We dig tolerance.

I've been to the Magic Kingdom. It's already the gayest place on the face of the Earth; And by "Gayest" I do NOT mean "Lamest" or "Happiest"
