The Gay Teen Market is Not What Disney Thought
I mean, how many gay teens are there, really?
According to an article on WebMD (2021):
- Between 2015 and 2019, the percentage of 15- to 17-year-olds who said they identified as "non-heterosexual" rose from 8.3% to 11.7%, according to nationwide surveys by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
- "Although our analyses demonstrated that there has been a significant increase in the proportion of girls and boys that self-identified as gay, lesbian or bisexual, we cannot be certain if this represents a true increase of this magnitude, or if it reflects at least in part, greater comfort by teens with acknowledging a non-heterosexual identity on an anonymous questionnaire," said Dr. Andrew Adesman, who led an analysis of the findings.” (emphasis mine)
Somewhere in the executive suite at Disney, an animator pitched the lesbian film idea, Strange World, while ignoring the fact that less than 12% of teenagers identify as homosexuals.
It begs the question, what did they THINK that the other 88% would do with this film?
It would truly be a Strange World if people spent their hard earned money to watch this dumpster fire.
In the world in what is known as “reality”, Disney stands to lose about $147 million on this loss leader, according to a recent piece by Not the Bee. It’s stuff like this that added up to a $1.5 billion loss for Disney in the last fiscal year and rewarded their former CEO with a pink slip and an empty cardboard box. Do it ten times in a row and 2022-2023 will probably end the same way.
I don’t know how to say it nicely, so I won’t. The people making these decisions regarding inclusion and turning a once great company into a shell of its former self are absolute, bumbling fools. If you invest with them, you’re a bigger fool yet. If you’re a Christian and you invest with them, you can add hypocrisy to your foolishness.
LGBTQIA+ activism is not a profitable industry. The sooner these fools learn that, the better off society will be.
Our CEO and CCO recently met with a creator who was on a popular kids show and was fired in favor of a lesbian actress. The question he’s been asking other so-called Christian platforms is whether they would ever knowingly hire open homosexuals for their childrens programming. Until he met Loor, no one in the “Christian” world would guarantee that.
Read that last paragraph again and meditate deeply on every possible meaning of the words, “spineless cowards.”
It’s not just Disney that’s the problem. It’s your “trusted” Christian streaming service.
If you are an investor who wants to repent of foolishness, hypocrisy and cowardice, hit us up.
I went to a movie yesterday and I’ve been thinking about the previews ever since. I don’t make it to the theater as often as I would like, and every time I go I’m reminded how much I love it!
Gothix NOW FUNDING on Loor
What happens when a goth African-American influencer tells her listeners that the objections over the actress playing the new Little Mermaid (Ariel) might not be racism?

I had the privilege of having lunch with a filmmaker the other day after reading his script. I don't know whether we will carry his film or not (I hope we do); however, it was refreshing to listen to
