Donald Trump's running mate Mike Pence wrote an opinion piece in 1999 following the release of the Disney film "Mulan," saying that the kid's movie was made by a "mischievous liberal" to influence children about women in the military.

The article, discovered by BuzzFeed News, appeared on the website for Pence's Indiana radio program "The Mike Pence Show."

"I suspect that some mischievous liberal at Disney assumes that Mulan's story will cause a quiet change in the next generation's attitude about women in combat and they just might be right," said Pence, years before he would serve in Congress or as Indiana's governor.

"Just think about how often we think of Bambi every time the subject of deer hunting comes into the mainstream media debate."

Buzzfeed notes that "Mulan," an animated feature film, is based on the ancient Chinese story Ballad of Mulan from the sixth century.

"Despite her delicate features and voice, Disney expects us to believe that Mulan's ingenuity and courage were enough to carry her to military success on an equal basis with her cloddish cohorts," Pence wrote. "Obviously, this is Walt Disney's attempt to add childhood expectation to the cultural debate over the role of women in the military."

Pence cited the "Tailhook" and Aberdeen Proving Grounds scandals to conclude that "the hard truth of our experiment with gender integration is that is has been an almost complete disaster for the military and for many of the individual women involved."

Last Tuesday the House of Representatives approved a measure that prevents women from being required to register for the draft, The Washington Free Beacon reports. Secretary of Defense Ash Carter announced in December that all combat roles would be opened to women.

Former British Prime Minister David Cameron lifted the ban on women serving in combat roles on the front lines last week, according to the BBC. Cameron said the move was a "major step" and allowed the military to "make the most of all its talent."
