Throughout the '80s and '90s, "family-friendly" entertainment grew more and more sexualized. The one space children and families still had that was not fraught with sexual innuendo was the realm of same-sex friendship. That all changed in the last decade as the LGBT movement took over children's entertainment.
This is tragic for children on many levels because the development of platonic same-sex friendships is a critical aspect of healthy early childhood development. It is a staple of child psychology that "prior to the onset of adolescence, boys and girls become socialized primarily within same-sex contexts" and "same-sex friendship dominates the childhood peer socialization experience from preschool through grade school." Therefore, children's stories which overtly sexualize or romanticize same-sex friendship deliberately sow confusion. But the sexual revolutionaries do not care. They are determined to project their own narcissistic need for "queer visibility" onto children's spaces.
Netflix's cartoon reboot of the '80s classic She-Ra: Princess of Power, now She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, is the latest example of this phenomena. Past seasons of the series included lesbian innuendo, a "non-binary" character (who's really just a shape-shifter) and two gay-dads. Notably, the mother-erasure the left encourages by normalizing homosexual "dads" is something about which supposed feminists remain hypocritically silent. Then, again, hypocrisy is a left-wing way of being.
In season 5, the final season of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, released May 15, creator Noelle Stevenson puts it all out there and has the main character, She-Ra (Aimee Carrero), fall in love with former villain, Catra (AJ Michalka). The two characters declare their love for one another and kiss passionately in the last episode as She-Ra risks her life to save the universe.
She-Ra: "You love me."
Catra: "You're such an idiot."
She-Ra: "I love you too."
This final season also features kissing and declarations of romantic love between minor princesses Spinnarella (Noelle Stevenson) and her "wife" Netossa (Krystal Joy Brown). The two gay dads engage in some campy bickering. (Why do LGBT writers stereotype other homosexual characters?)
Sadly, in today's day and age parents cannot click on a cartoon, even a re-make of a childhood favorite, and presume it is agenda-free. After the Supreme Court decision legalizing same-sex marriage nationally came into full force, same-sex romance is considered no different from the male/female romance that children recognize as "mom and dad." Therefore, the rights and well-being of children to healthy early development free of unnecessary sexual confusion is no longer in force. Hollywood culture is not on a "slippery slope." It has already gone off a cliff.
