Did you notice that Toy Story 4 actually featured a couple of LGBTQ characters? You can be forgiven for not noticing since they were only in the Pixar movie for a few seconds. However, that still hasn't stopped One Million Moms from boycotting the Disney flick for depicting a lesbian couple in a minor scene.

The organization points out that Toy Story 4 subtly tried to normalize the idea of two lesbians raising a child together.

"[Some] praise it as a ‘small moment of normalization, which is exactly why 1MM finds this to be so dangerous. It has not been mentioned much in mainstream media, which could appear as acceptance when really it was because it happened so fast. But the scene was included and intentionally not announced prior to the movie release in hopes it would be kept quiet to expose as many children as possible. So many families probably plan on seeing this movie if they haven’t already and will be blindsided by this subtle but obvious promotion of the LGBTQ lifestyle," they wrote.

The said scene actually focuses on Bonnie arriving for her first day of school. However, you can also spot one child being dropped off by two women. One Million Moms even pointed out that the child is later collected by the same women, which somehow confirms that they are indeed a couple.

"The scene is subtle in order to desensitize children. But it is obvious that the child has two mothers, and they are parenting together," they wrote.

Disney and Pixar have yet to comment on the boycott.
