Disney Beclowns Itself by Giving ‘Fairy Godmothers’ the Gender Neutral Treatment

I’d start by saying this fixation on gender identity is starting to get ridiculous, but that particular ship sailed a long time ago. We are now living fully in a morass of absurdity in 2022, as woke corporations insist on wokifying everything.


Enter the Walt Disney Corporation, which is still recovering from the political ass-whupping it took from Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis over the Parental Rights in Education law. Now, the “Happiest Place on Earth” is once again trying to curry favor with the progressive crowd by changing the name of the “Fairy Godmothers in Training” cast members to something that is more gender neutral.

Instead of the previous moniker, this particular role will now be known as “Fairy Godmother’s Apprentice” because inclusivity and stuff. This character’s job is to dress and style children to reflect their favorite Disney character in the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. According to the company’s blog, “[t]his cast members that might not identify as female can still be part of the process to dress up & style the children without having to refer to themselves as a female Disney character.”

I suppose we should be grateful. After all, they could have changed it to “Fairy GodBirthingPerson,” right?


Hopefully, they don’t read this – I don’t want to give them any ideas.

But Disney’s continuing obsession with progressive ideology on gender and sexuality raises a question: How far will they go before its customer base has had enough? There has to be a limit, right? The vast majority of Americans are not on board with the company sliding further into full wokeism.

At some point, parents are not going to want to continue bringing their children to Disney’s theme parks – especially if the company continues finding ways to wokify the attractions. The same will eventually come true for the company’s movies and television programming. People might be willing to tolerate a certain level of wokeness, but at this rate, the House of the Mouse is in danger of going too far and alienating a sizeable chunk of its customer base. The question is: Is it already too late for them to turn it around?
