How Is The MRC Freaking Out About LGBT Folks In Entertainment Now?
Topic: Media Research Center

It's been a while since we checked in on the Media Research Center's abject hatred of anyone in the LGBTQ community, real or fictional. Let's tally up the recent hate, shall we?

A corollary to the MRC's hatred for non-heteronormative people is love for anyone who hates them as much as they do, hence its flip-flop on J.K. Rowling from bashing her for the witchcraft in her "Harry Potter" books and having Dumbledore be gay to treating her as a victim because she doesn't like transgender people. The MRC revived Rowling's victim status as talk of a "Harry Potter" TV series picked up. Tierin-Rose Mandelberg wrote:

Fans are embodying the typically selfish desires of the left. They want the Harry Potter series but they don’t want Rowling involved. Giving money to a “transphobe” seems barbaric so they’re conflicted and feeding off of other leftists to figure out what the heck they actually stand for. MRC had a great day witnessing again how “the left has completely sold out to this lunacy and the fact that someone as previously woke as Rowling is getting heat for this speaks volumes.” Their mob mentality is not new.


Conservatives are just sitting out and watching the heat as leftists attack one of their own yet again. Tuesday afternoon comedic relief.

Mandelberg forgot to mention that her employer used to hate Rowling because Dumbledore was gay.

Mandelberg followed up a couple days later, unironically writing, "Holding a grudge is one area the left thrives. This week’s 'peaceful' protest includes attacks at J.K. Rowling yet again." Again, she forgot where she works, where grudges are legendary.

Lindsay Kornick complained about a fictional character who is transgender:

Here I thought cop dramas were the only shows under leftist scrutiny. Before it’s even aired, CBS’s new Silence of the Lambs drama Clarice is drawing attention from transgender activists. So much so, the series now has a token transgender character to discuss the “complicated legacy” of the original film. Liberals should just put out a list of things that aren’t “complicated” at this point.

Kornick is complaining that the trans character is meant to sort of undo the character of Buffalo Bill in the original movie: "Considering The Silence of the Lambs is one of only three movies to win all of the top five Oscar categories, I don’t think anyone on this show is qualified to lecture it, much less a trans activist." We thought the MRC believed award shows like the Oscars were worthless.

Alexa Moutevelis lashed out against more fictional transgender people:

ABC’s The Good Doctor might want to change its name to The Woke Doctor. After previous episodes this season supported Black Lives Matter and abortion, Monday night’s episode, “Irresponsible Salad Bar Practices,” offered the double whammy of a pregnant trans man and systemic racism in medicine.

The episode began with trans man Rio Gutierrez (played by trans actor Emmett Preciado) at the hospital to receive treatment for a pituitary tumor. Rio tells the doctors about being engaged to a man, while the doctors bemoan the “messed-up software” that correctly records Rio’s gender as female.

Elise Ehrhard lost it over "Blue's Clues" refusing to hate people who aren't like Ehrhard:

The past few years have seen a plethora of LGBTQIABCDEFG targeting of preschool, kindergarten, and elementary school audiences. 

Cross-dressing actor Billy Porter appeared in a gown on the show Sesame Street. Ru Paul's Drag Race star Nina West created a kids' ABC song using drag terminology. The classic children's cartoon Arthur had a same-sex wedding and PBS Kids sang about two dads and a baby. My Little Pony introduced a lesbian couple. Nickelodeon, alongside regularly promoting LGBTQIA+ propaganda on its children's shows, outed SpongeBob. 

So, it is no surprise that Blue's Clues & You, Nickelodeon's reboot of the beloved children's classic, would insert sexual identitarianism into its programming.

On the show's official YouTube channel, it introduced the song ABC Song with Blue! Guess what the letter 'P' stands for? Pride, of course. A perfectly fine word on its own, but the imagery surrounding the letter leaves no doubt of the political and social messaging.

"The letter is also surrounded by multiple other flags representing specific communities. Those include flags for the Trans community, asexual community, pansexual community, intersex community, gender-fluid community, and more," explains an article in Deadline praising the song.

Because, of course, every parent wants their preschooler to be introduced to the symbolism of the asexual, pansexual, intersex and gender-fluid communities. Who doesn't want their toddler up-to-date on the latest in pansexual imagery?


Some may call the song harmless because 3-year-olds cannot understand the larger sexual politics behind the imagery. But it is part of a bigger pattern of programming children early by inculcating them with loaded symbols so they will be good little left-wing sexual identitarians as they grow.

Ehrhard, presumably, wants her children to grow up hating LGBTQ people the way she does.

And, echoing its freakouts over Dr. Seuss and the Muppets, the MRC's Gabriel Hays served up a dumb rant over Mr. Potato Head losing his honorific:

Oh well isn’t that just so appropriate for our deranged and increasingly sterile society? The AP characterized the disturbing and unnecessary change as an update done in order to appeal to the perspective of current children. They wrote, “Many toymakers have been updating their classic brands in recent years, hoping to relate to kids today and to reflect more modern families.”

Of course, the implication there is horrifying. Kids young enough to enjoy Mr. Potato Head really shouldn’t not be having serious, obsessive questions about gender or sex. If anything this seems like insidious programming aimed at sensitive kids with far-left parents than a mere reflection of current toy users’ perspectives.


It seems the breakdown of the family in modern society won’t fail to be represented in every stupid bit of our culture. And what about Toy Story now? Will the fifth movie now do away with the stirring romance between Mr. & Mrs. Potato Head? What are we going to see next? A polyamorous, non-binary "throuple" of spuds helping Woody (who has since been changed into a gender-neutral Native American toy,) with his latest scheme? Next time we see him, will Andy have undergone a sex change which prompts all his toys to question their own gender realities? Knowing Disney, they’ll take that story idea.

Hays is what happens when the MRC pays someone solely to spew hate of people he thinks aren't like him.
