Florida teacher under investigation for showing gay Disney movie

Jenna Barbie, a teacher at Winding Waters K-8, located in Brooksville, about an hour north of Tampa, Florida, is under investigation by school authorities and the state Department of Education. Show your fifth graders an openly gay Disney animated film.

The educator revealed in a video she posted on TikTok that a parent who is also a member of the local school board denounced her for adaptation of the film “Strange World” last May 3rd.

The PG-rated animated film follows a family of legendary explorers and The film features a gay character, Ethan Clayde, who has a crush on another male character in the film. Her infatuation is mentioned once at the beginning of the film, and her sexuality is never mentioned again, the teacher said in the video.

Barbie explained that she showed her students a sci-fi movie because it was related to her science classes in class, and that she also wanted to give her students a break after a day of standard testing.

In addition, he added that he received parent-signed permission forms to show his students PG-rated films at the beginning of the school year.

“Is he a character from an LGBTQ movie? Absolutely. Is that why I showed it? Didn’t say.

In her TikTok video, Barbie said the parent and Hernando County School Board member reported her to the state. He accused her of exposing students to LGBT identity and endangering students’ safety.

“This is a public education system that welcomes students from all walks of life, cultures and religions and should be encouraged and represented. I am not and will never inspire anyone to follow my beliefs. However, I will always be a safe person spreading the message of kindness, positivity and compassion to everyone,” Barbie said.

At a school board meeting last week, Barbie named the school board member who reported her Shannon Rodriguez.

Rodriguez responded at a board meeting: accusing Barbie of “deflowering” her 10-year-old son by showing the movie.

“It is not the job of a teacher to impose his beliefs on a child: religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, any of the above. Letting movies like this help teachers open the door… to conversations that have no place in our classrooms. As the leader of this community, I will not stand by and allow this minority to infiltrate our schools,” he said.

The complaint against Barbie comes amid a nationwide debate raging in Florida over whether LGBTQ issues should be taught in schools.

Florida lawmakers last year passed a controversial education bill that critics dubbed the “Don’t Say Gay” law. The law prohibits the teaching of sexual orientation and gender identity in grades K-3, and the Department of Education recently passed a rule extending the ban to grade 12..
