Early last year, I wrote about the Left’s “war on whimsy” and LGBTQ movement’s attempts to colonize childhood, especially by attempting to hijack and then sexualize beloved childhood characters.
They have attempted to claim that Tintin is gay. They’ve insisted that Anne of Green Gables must have been a lesbian because of her loving friendship with Diana.
In the realm of entertainment, they’ve launched campaigns to have Sesame Street declare that Bert and Ernie are a gay couple, and that Disney give one of their most popular female characters a girlfriend. And now, they’ve moved on to another hero of children’s literature: Jo March of Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women.
I’ve always loved Alcott’s books on the March family: Little Women, Little Men, and Jo’s Boys. Jo was always my favorite, because she was obsessed with her writing. Amy was the one I disliked throughout the entire first book, because she had burned her sister’s manuscript in a fit of rage. Jo, of course, eventually became a writer, met a German professor who both encouraged and critiqued her writing, and married him. Together they opened a school for boys on an estate that Jo inherited from her aunt, a story which is told in Little Men and Jo’s Boys.
Jo March has long been one of Alcott’s most popular characters, which is precisely why she attracted the attention of the LGBTQ activists. According to an exclusive by Entertainment Weekly, a “whole new generation is about to be introduced to Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women…the classic novel will be adapted into a vibrant graphic novel form for young readers, in celebration of its 150th anniversary.” The modern version of Little Women will be called Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy, and—you guessed it—Jo March is a lesbian. “In this modernized retelling,” EW explains, “the March family is blended, multiracial and LGBTQ inclusive, with updates making it resonant to an even wider swath of today’s young readers.”
