As reported earlier this week the Disney Channel this year added a gay teen character to its popular coming-of-age show Andi Mack. And as predicted the group One Million Moms a creation of the anti-LGBT hate group the American Family Association are absolutely LIVID over it and has issued a “call to action” on its (phony astro-turfing) website:
What is wrong with having family-friendly content that is acceptable for all ages or even leaving a couple of networks solely for children’s entertainment? Disney Channel is gradually becoming another Freeform Network. As one of only a few channels catering to children, it cannot possibly be that Disney Channel has a financial need for more adult viewers.
By choosing to abandon family-friendly entertainment, Disney’s inexplicable choice to move toward more “adult” fare may ultimately prove to be a huge mistake.
Disney’s first gay kiss aired earlier this year on Disney XD’s animated series “Star vs. the Forces of Evil.” The scene took place at a concert where the band played a romantic tune that inspired many couples in the audience to kiss; a few of those couples — none of which involved a main character — were same sex.
The Disney Channel is deliberately choosing to “move forward” and promote adult content to children. By choosing to move in the direction of more “adult” stories and content, the Disney Channel – and the entire Disney media empire – may be choosing to sacrifice something far more precious… children’s innocence.
The plot of the show follows the title character Andi as she works through her teenage life, with the help of her family and her friends Cyrus and Buffy, including coping with the revelation that her sister Bex is actually her mother and that her mother Celia is actually her grandmother. But that is obviously okay with the American Family Association, I mean One Million Moms.
