Hank Hanegraaff, president of the Christian Research Institute and host of the 𝘉𝘪𝘣𝘭𝘦 𝘈𝘯𝘴𝘸𝘦𝘳 𝘔𝘢𝘯 broadcast, comments on the headline in USA Today, “‘Lightyear’ Features Queer Character, Same-sex Kiss.” As noted in the article, the new lesbian character named Alisha Hawthorne stole the show as she gets engaged to a woman on the mission’s science crew. A montage shows glimpses of Alisha and her female partner even starting a family together. Despite Disney’s capitulation, reality remains the same. The reality that according to a consensus of sociological metrics, women and men enjoy strategic complementarity. As such, both are essential in the rearing of children. Social science statistics unambiguously support the strategic significance of “gender differentiated parenting.” Neither mothers nor fathers are replaceable in the process. Once we abandon common sense societal values, there is virtually no limit on where unsanctified passions may lead us. In fact, the first sentence in the USA Today article says it all, “Lightyear is taking queer representation to infinity and beyond.” Disney largely capitulated to the culture. Question is, “Will you?”
