Can You Be A Gender Neutral Parent?

Whether or not Disney did this consciously, this is no doubt a progressive step forward for gender non-conformity acceptance.

When author and LGBT activist, Eric Rosswood was visiting Disneyland recently, he couldn't help but do a "double take" when he saw the display mannequin.



Indeed, Rosswood's eyes were not deceiving him. The boy mannequin was rocking a Minnie Mouse outfit, purse and all, in the Disneyland park store window.

Disney as a company has publicly supported LGBT rights, according to The New Civil Rights Movement:

"The company signed amicus briefs for the DOMA and Prop 8 cases back in 2013. They also signed a friend-of-the-court brief earlier this year urging the Supreme Court to rule in favor of marriage equality, and after the court did just that, Disney World lit up Cinderella's castle in rainbow colors."

Bravo Disney! Now, let's see some LGBT couples in your next animated flick, yes?
