Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother to Be ‘Gender Neutral’ in Sony Remake – Why?

Remember in George Orwell’s Animal Farm when Napoleon – the character inspired by Joseph Stalin – took it upon himself to educate the younger piglets on the farm?

By dominating the farm’s educational program, Napoleon successfully indoctrinated the young piglets, ensuring the preservation of his power.

The progressive left took Animal Farm as a guidebook, and is now dominating educational programs from the classroom to cinema.

The latest re-education initiative includes a 50-year-old man playing the “fairy godmother” in an upcoming, live-action remake of Cinderella – a story believed to be over 2000 years old. The first literary version of Cinderella dates back to 1634, with a variant of the story dating back to the year 7BC.

Hollywood star Billy Porter announced he will play a genderless fairy godmother in the Sony remake. In an interview with CBS News, Porter said, “Magic has no gender… We are presenting this character as genderless. That’s how I’m playing it.” 

Why is the progressive left so obsessed with driving their identity narratives into children’s stories?

According to political scientist Mark Lila: “At a very young age our children are being encouraged to talk about their individual identities even before they have them.” In fact, most children do not amass a truly mature sense of their sexual selves until puberty.

Yet the progressive left is hellbent on pushing young kids to reevaluate their bedtime stories and fairytales through a gender-fluid lens.

Planned Parenthood even encourages parents with preschool age children to address gender identity with their child early on and to allow them to explore various sexual identities and feelings.

According to a study by Dr. McHugh, a former chief psychiatrist at Johns Hopkins Hospital, “When children who reported transgender feelings were tracked without medical or surgical treatment at both Vanderbilt University and London’s Portman Clinic, 70-80% of them spontaneously lost those feelings.”

The progressive left’s sexual indoctrination program pressures kids to imitate what they see on the Hollywood movie screen. Much like Animal Farm’s Napoleon, the progressive left seeks to preserve themselves, ignoring any potential damage it would do to our children.

Furthermore, where is the feminist mob screaming “death to the patriarchy”, given the new Cinderella movie’s director has cast a male in a female role?

Crickets…
