TRIGGER WARNING: sexual assault

***Please take some time to educate yourself about the issue and decide for yourself if this is something you care about changing within our community***

 

Blue Sky Studios, 20th Century Fox, and Walt Disney all have a significant influence within the film industry and consequently an impact on the developing minds of numerous children. While the recent Spies in Disguise film conveys the beautiful, positive message that we should all celebrate and embrace our differences, the film also conveys a very dark, perverted message that sexual assault is humorous and acceptable. Spies in Disguise…. more like Sexual Assault in Disguise. Glorifying sexual assault as entertaining and humorous in the media is NOT okay. In the film, there are multiple graphic scenes of the spy pigeon being raped. Rape culture is NOT okay. Films that teach kids to accept and embrace rape culture are also NOT okay. These sexual assault scenes NEED to be removed. Sexual assault is a very serious, sad, and real subject that must not be taken lightly or conveyed as a joke.

Regardless of whether this was deliberately intentional or an atrocious oversight, the company needs to take responsibility and accountability for their actions. Cutting out these rape scenes is a simple action that can be performed by the animator studio. This needs to be done before the video is released to DVD.

My heart goes out to my fellow survivors that were triggered by the dark and perverted message within Spies in Disguise. Additionally, my heart yearns for the kids that have already seen this film to not be fooled and influenced by the film’s negative, false message. May the survivors’ and kids’ minds, negatively affected by this film, be strong and able to rise above this injustice.

Please join the petition and be a part of the platform that urges Blue Sky Studios to release an edited version of Spies in Disguise as soon as possible.
