I’m scared that there are one million female extremists out there.
The Disney Channel broke new ground last week when writers for the popular family sitcom “Good Luck Charlie” made the decision to feature a lesbian couple on the program.
A Disney Channel spokesperson previously told TV Guide that the episode was “developed to be relevant to kids and families around the world and to reflect themes of diversity and inclusiveness.”
Predictably, far-right conservative group One Million Moms is outraged over the LGBT inclusion in Disney programming and has issued a formal statement in response to the lesbian couple. A portion of the statement reads,
“One Million Moms launched an email campaign in 2013 that urged Disney officials to abandon their plans to corrupt the children’s network with LGBT content. However, Disney officials have not responded to the thousands of emails protesting their plans. Disney has decided to be politically correct instead of providing family-friendly programming. Disney should stick to entertaining, not pushing an agenda.
Conservative families need to urge Disney to avoid controversial topics that children are far too young to comprehend. This is the last place a parent would expect their children to be confronted with topics that are too difficult for them to understand. Mature issues of this nature are being introduced too early and too soon, and it is extremely unnecessary.”
