In recent developments, The Walt Disney Company has reportedly introduced “pronoun pins” for certain employees at its Epcot park in Orlando. According to a report from The Daily Caller, the pins, featuring various gender pronouns, will initially be worn by workers in Epcot’s custodial department, with plans to extend their use across all departments in the park. Anonymous employees have indicated that participation in this initiative is currently voluntary.
An internal communication shared among employees was quoted in the report: “Hi everyone, we are excited to introduce pronoun name tags in our area! Pronoun name tags help us understand each other more and bring a positive impact within our community.”
There has been a backlash from some quarters. Social media posts, such as one stating, “Disney World is rolling out preferred pronoun pins for employees at their Orlando theme parks. Walt is rolling over in his grave. #GoWokeGoBroke,” reflect the dissenting views.
It is essential to note that Disney has been actively incorporating LGBTQ representation in its content aimed at children, a trend noted in a GLAAD report stating that Disney and Netflix led in producing LGBTQ content in 2022. The company has faced criticism and praise for its inclusive initiatives, including fighting against Florida’s anti-grooming Parental Rights in Education law and incorporating transgender characters in children’s shows. Additionally, Disney is currently navigating financial challenges, with CEO Bob Iger announcing significant job cuts and a $2 billion spending reduction.
Disney is going full-throttle in its promotion of gay and transgender ideology in its entertainment aimed at children. And Disney’s blockbuster movie releases are also bombing at the box office, with the latest flop being the feminist superhero movie The Marvels.
Disney World is rolling out preferred pronoun pins for employees at their Orlando theme parks. Of course @Disney they are. 🙄 And of course they will expect other employees to go along with the craziness. Walt is rolling over in his grave. #GoWokeGoBroke https://t.co/GybUyIf34A
