One day, the Solos went to the airport. Maybe they were going on a trip to Niagra Falls or something, who cares. Jacen was whining so Han and Leia decided to put him inside a suitcase for the duration of the trip. However, the baggage attendant realized what was happening. She said, “I’m sorry, but you can’t check that bag. You’re going to have to carry-on your wayward son.”
One Million Moms, the anti-gay group comprised of far fewer than a million people, has found a new target for its attacks: Walt Disney World’s unofficial tradition of “Gay Days.” The group is calling on people to email Disney’s CEO in protest.
“The first Saturday in June, homosexuals, bisexuals and transvestites will be at the Magic Kingdom with an agenda and purpose different than what would be expected at Disney,” members of the group write on their website. “Homosexuals will be celebrating the 23rd anniversary of Gay Day wearing matching Gay Day merchandise, such as T-shirts. There will also be transvestites dressed in drag showing their support for the event.”
Urging visitors to send an email to Disney’s CEO and other officials, the post continues, “Disney has been irresponsible for far too long. Disney representatives and security need to maintain a family-friendly atmosphere and require proper conduct and dress code on a daily basis.”
Oh, just shut up already. You’re not going to win.
I worked at the Magic Kingdom for five years and I still live in Orlando.
Concerned familiesBigots used to complain to me about Gay Days on occasion. I would smile and tell them that Disney did not sanction or host the event, but they DID host Night of Joy if that’s more your speed. (I left out the part where Night of Joy is the WORST NIGHT, because groups of young Christians are douche bags who steal everything.) What Disney does do is take money from anyone who wants to give it to them. And if you think that hasn’t been Disney’s main directive for some time then I don’t know which cave to send this birthday card to, because even cave people know Disney is pretty evil. They just give us cool things in return for being evil, so.
There is nothing about the Gay Days in park events that is inappropriate in any way. I mean, unless your definition of inappropriate is wearing t-shirts and having fun with your friends and loved ones and sometimes proposing in front of the castle which straight people do at Disney parks ALL OF THE TIME. And really, odds are there are secret gays doing those things at Disney parks every other day of the year. WHICH IS WORSE? GAYS YOU KNOW TO AVOID IF YOU’RE A RAGING BIGOT, OR SECRET GAYS ENJOYING THEMSELVES WITHOUT YOUR KNOWLEDGE? I would think it’s the secret gays. I was, in fact, a secret bisexual selling your children balloons. BALLOONS WITH THE ABILITY TO MAKE YOUR SONS GAY. MOOO HA HA. No, wait. I have that wrong. Happy. They have the ability to make your sons happy. Because children love balloons. Seriously. They eat that shit up.
1. Do these groups realize how many gay people work at Disney World? You are interacting with them all the damn time when you go on vacation.
2. It’s the happiest place on Earth. OF COURSE it’s gay.
You know you had a Catholic upbringing when somebody says “May the force be with you” and your instant reaction is to reply with “And also with you”.
Lift up your lightsabers.
We lift them up to the lord.
Let us give thanks to the Force our guide.
It is right to give the Force thanks and praise.
I think you mean “It is right and just.”
OMG, I cannot believe you guys or the fact that it came to me that fast.
OH MY GOD
