It is easy to boycott a product when the product sucks. It is exponentially more painful to extricate yourself from something that you love.
For example, it is easy for a conservative 'coffeyholic' to not overspend on a burnt cup of coffee at Starbucks, even when there is no viable alternative, because of Starbuck's woke corporate culture. I would rather suffer the onslaught of raging morning caffeine withdrawal than chew on that sludge. The fact that it is a horrible company is just a side benefit.
Quitting Disney will be a little tougher for some of us who vacation there on a regular basis and have so many great family memories made there. I am reminded of these in every room in our house from the Disney coasters on our coffee table, to a Mickey Mouse soap dispenser in the bathroom, assorted coffee mugs in the cupboard, shirts, purses, toys and other assorted souvenirs we've accumulated from Disney over the years.
Status-quo is not an option, however, what with Disney CEO Bob Chapek 'coming out' against Florida’s anti-pedophile grooming bill. The last Disney collapsible paper straw for me came from a Disney staff meeting where "an executive producer at Disney said she was advancing a “not-at-all-secret gay agenda” to insert queerness into children’s animation."
Call me old fashioned, but I preferred when they were a little more subtle about their queerness.
December, 2021 at Chef Mickey's (my grandbabies and their cousins) Eagle eyes may spot Mr & Mrs DaBlade in the background on this one :)
We literally have hundreds and hundreds of like pictures taken in the last 3 years during our Disney vacations. Gonna miss it...
