I knew Disney was making a live action version of "The Little Mermaid,” but I didn’t realize the star of the show would be a queer Native American dude in drag.

It looks like mentally confused men in cosplay outfits have become part of your world over at the Magic Kingdom, which recently hosted a "cultural journey" for company employees featuring a "two-spirit" man who spends his free time dressing up as a mermaid. No, this is not a joke - at least, it's not meant to be.

Geo Neptune (I'll just assume, for his poor mother's sake, that that's not the name she branded him with at birth) is a member of the Passamaquoddy Tribe from along the Canada/Maine border, according to the description of the event on Disney's website. Along with being a basketweaving drag queen, Neptune here is also "two-spirit," which means he/she/it/them exists in some nebulous made-up space between "masculine and feminine energies." On the side, Neptune dresses up as a mermaid, complete with sparkly makeup and a fake fish tail.

Here are the details, per Christopher Rufo:

Oh! And he also teaches kids, and in 2020 became the first openly transgender elected official in Maine after winning a spot on the school board in Indian Township. Because that's what you want.

The event was apparently part of Disney's Native American Heritage Month, which makes me wonder how other Native American descendants feel about their culture being represented by a guy in fake eyelashes pulling off his best Ariel impression. Because if simply watching a football team called the "Redskins" was offensive, I can't imagine being repped by a mentally ill man in a spangly fish tail is any better.
