'The Bravest Knight' Fairy Tale Gives Us the LGBTQ Hero We've All Been Dreading
If you've got a subscription to Hulu and you've got kids, you might want to know that a new cartoon short has surfaced that looks pretty safe—but isn't. "The Bravest Knight Who Ever Lived" is based on a children's book with a gay plot twist at the very end. I heard of this through a gay friend who sent me an outraged email letting me know he found this upsetting in the extreme and very unfair to parents. Unsuspecting parents might very easily turn this on thinking it must be a nice story about a brave knight, only to be unhappily fooled into a political morass at the end. Why is the LGBTQ lobby gunning for children so hard? Why isn't this topic left up to parents to introduce as they see fit on their own timeline? Why must we do this to families? This cartoon is something a four-year-old would enjoy. Isn't four a little young to be discussing sexual politics? I think so. I think seven is too young. I think 12 is about right, but that's my opinion as a parent and it should be up to me when to introduce such adult topics.
The argument about "kids needing LGBTQ heroes" is stupid. Why? Why must everything be identity driven? Why does sexuality have to matter to toddlers? Civilization has survived just fine without this sly indoctrination for centuries. Not only does it upset parents, but it sets up the LGBTQ activists who push these sorts of things as the enemy of parents. Does the gay community really want to be associated with these people who insist that every kindergartner acquires the sexual knowledge of Caligula? They're usually the ones behind the sex ed curriculum that includes bizarre sexual practices that are neither healthy nor safe, like when GLSEN introduced "fisting" to high schoolers. And if you want to pinpoint the moment Donald Trump won the election, I think we can safely zero in on the moment Barack Obama used Title IX to get boys into the girls' locker rooms. If they don't want to be seen as a threat to children, then maybe the gay lobby should stop promoting the early sexualization of children, the invasion of female privacy, and the spread of dangerous sexual practices dressed up as "education." (By the way, using lube doesn't protect the anus from prolapse, fissures, fecal incontinence, and an increased chance of cancer. Look at me, giving out actual education!)
