Lesbian Couple Featured on Disney Channel
My children were exposed to homosexuality via the Disney Channel tonight, and I almost cried.
How DARE the Disney Channel – of all channels – expose my children to … homosexuality?
Ya know, because, they've never seen any homosexuals before. We like to hide inside, from the real world n stuff.
Okay, enough jokes…
I was in the other room, working on some posts, while the girls were watching Good Luck Charlie. I overheard someone on the show say, “two moms, or two dads”. What the…?
I ran into the living room and asked, “WHAT WERE THEY TALKING ABOUT????”
My girls were all smiling and explained that two moms were on the show. I was like.. “you mean two moms two moms? Like lesbians?”
“Like actual lesbians?” – I just wanted to make sure before I ran off and blogged about it.
“Yes! One was a graphic designer and the other was (I forgot), and they were like you guys! Two moms!”
My face when I realized that they were for real featuring a lesbian couple:
But .. but.. on the Disney Channel?
The backlash started almost immediately, but the support started to flow in – in droves! Obviously, though, it's more fun to feature the moronic homophobes and make fun of them or argue with them.
I know the show is over, so it doesn't matter, but it does matter ‘cuz I'm gon' shine my Men in Black flasher thingie and make mah kids forget that they ever saw them homosexchuals.
“This subject”… really? Turned it off immediately? They were featured for like 30 seconds, so you made them miss the ending of one of their favorite shows to try and hide them from what they obviously already saw. #Logic
Adult topics? I don't get what is so “adult” about featuring this couple. Were these people saying the same things when they saw black and white people together back in the day? I mean, I really truly don't get it!
The comments weren't all bad, though. In fact, most were good. At the time of this post, there are over 1,500 comments on the post I'm talking about, and only about 25 of them are negative!
This lady was just as happy as our girls were to see a same-sex couple featured! #SameLove
Unfortunately, children are now being exposed to same-sex marriage on a network that is designed for kids. This is the last place a parent would expect their children to be confronted with topics that are too complicated for them to understand. Issues of this nature are being introduced too early and too soon, and it is becoming extremely common and unnecessary. — One Million Moms (which is actually less than 100,000 moms)
Homosexuality is not complicated. You can try and shelter your kids all you want, but if they attend public school, they have encountered gay people. If they have shopped in public, at a grocery store, they have encountered gay people. Being gay is not an “adult topic”, just as “being straight” isn't. You let your kids watch princess movies from toddlerhood, but a gay couple is featured on a show for tweens and all hell breaks loose? No. It doesn't work that way. We aren't going to sit quietly while you try to raise another generation of homophobes.
At the end of the day, Disney's not going anywhere any time soon. If Disney's gotten on board (the ones that took until 20?? to feature a black princess), don't you think it's time to realize this is a reality check?
Homosexuality isn't “adult” unless you make it that way. There's no reason at all to discuss actual sex stuff when kids are that age… it's a show… the show explained that some people have a mom and dad, while others have two moms or two dads. Families are made up of all kinds of people, and that harms no one.
P.S. I got to meet the star of Good Luck Charlie a while back… which makes this even cooler!
