A religious group in the United States is up-in-arms over the latest Toy Story installment, claiming it contains 'dangerous' lesbian content.

Pink News reports that Christian organisation One Million Mums is campaigning against Toy Story 4 because the inclusion of same-sex parents in one scene leaves families “blindsided.”

“The scene is subtle in order to desensitise children,” spokesperson Monica Cole said in a statement.

“But it is obvious that the child has two mothers, and they are parenting together.”

The scene in question in the popular Disney-Pixar animation depicts a lesbian couple - in the background - dropping their daughter off at day care. The same couple is then picking their daughter up later in the day.

“It was a noticeably small scene with the sole purpose of attempting to normalize this lifestyle,” Cole continued.

“Not to mention there was a brief comment made about not hiding in a closet also in the movie. Some children may not catch this reference, but it was extremely unnecessary as with the lesbian couple.”

The organisation's petition, which has over 12,000 signatures, reads: “I do not appreciate Disney including LGBTQ content in the children’s movie Toy Story 4. There has been a deliberate lack of mentioning this content. Therefore, families are blindsided intentionally by your company."

It concludes: "Actions such as this make me continue to distrust Disney.”
