C'mon, Disney, Tell the Truth about Same Sex Attractions in Kids

Actor Kevin Spacey is now accused of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old boy years ago. And he just announced he’s “gay.”

Would this ever be the backstory for a Disney boy character—molestation by a “gay”-identified adult resulting in same sex attractions?
Cyrus is the 13-year-old boy character on Disney Channel’s “Andi Mack” series, portrayed this season as a budding homosexual. He’s a fictional figure, of course, so his history can be invented. Disney could maintain the useful fiction that people are born this way and so was Cyrus.
But Disney’s in trouble with millions of American families with this storyline. They’ve featured adult homosexual characters in previous productions (LeFou in Beauty and the Beast; a female same sex couple in Doc McStuffins; and same sex kissing in Star vs. The Forces of Evil).
Now it’s their top-rated series for children ages 6 to 14, with a girl as the main character. The median age of show viewers is 10. This season, the plot reveals boy character Cyrus is attracted to another boy character, Jonah.
Disney dutifully sought pre-approval by sexual anarchy gatekeepers, radical homosexual activist groups GLAAD and PFLAG (Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays). Even GLSEN was consulted on this storyline, in the works for two years.
Why not seek input from American Family Association or One Million Moms? How about the American College of Pediatricians? Disney probably feared the reaction.
“Are you out of your mind?” would be the tame version.
America’s innocence-endangered kids deserve better than normalizing sinful, high-risk behavior. Yet there is a storyline that would be helpful.
What if Disney told the truth about the frequent origin of same sex attractions in youth?
A heartbreaking but realistic angle could explore what happens when a boy is molested by an adult male or an older teen boy, and then finds himself with same sex desires—feelings absent prior to the abuse.
Hollywood certainly knows about abuse. Harvey Weinstein is the current bad dude who violates women. But what about children and same sex incidents?
