Last week a recently launched animated series on Nickelodeon featured a married gay couple and One Million Moms is predictably quivering with rage. From the AFA’s OneNewsNow:
A children’s TV network made dubious history last week, airing the first animated show featuring a “married” same-gender couple. And one organization is working to do something about it.
After The Loud House episode aired on Nickelodeon, which is owned by Viacom Media Network, OneMillionMoms.com issued an alert to members.
“One Million Moms is extremely concerned that the network that is designed for children will now be exposing them to inappropriate content, content that they’re far too young to comprehend or understand,” comments Director Monica Cole. “And it will likely bring up premature conversations about sexual orientation that is completely unnecessary.”
She accuses Nickelodeon of pushing an agenda. “Networks, even children networks, are attempting to desensitize children and families in general,” Cole contends. “This is just proof that Nickelodeon had decided to be politically correct instead of just providing clean, family-friendly programming.”
Here’s what Monica Cole sent to her supporters before the show aired:
Please use the information we have provided to contact and strongly encourage Nickelodeon, owned by Viacom, to omit the scene in “The Loud House” featuring two dads or not air this controversial episode at all. If producers keep this episode as originally planned, then conservative families will have no choice but to no longer watch Nickelodeon in their homes so they can avoid the previews, commercials and reruns for this irresponsible episode. Tell them you are prepared to join thousands of other voices in urging advertisers to place it on their “do not advertise” list for introducing children to LGBT content.
I’m not seeing the episode on YouTube. Did anyone here see it?
