PBS Kids Is Taking Advantage of Parental Trust
By Monica Cole
Apparently featuring a same-sex wedding between two males on the children’s animated series Arthur wasn’t enough for those who are pro-LGBTQ at PBS KIDS. That happened nine months ago.
Now, the recent reboot of the PBS children’s series Clifford the Big Red Dog contains a child character named Samantha who has two mommies, Dr. and Ms. Mulberry. The same-sex couple was first introduced in a mid-February episode titled “The Big Red Tomato/Dogbot.” There was no disclaimer at the beginning of the episode where their relationship is explained.
And if a same-sex wedding and a same-sex relationship in children’s programming weren’t enough, PBS recently announced that Sesame Street will feature a drag queen activist wearing a gender-bender tuxedo gown in one of its episodes this year. Sesame Street posted on its Facebook page: “Billy Porter bringing those fierce vibes to Sesame Street. #Season51” The post also included a fire emoji which is used to signify that something is cool, awesome, exciting, or “on fire.” It can also convey that someone is sexy or hot.
Discussion of such controversial topics and lifestyle choices should be left up to parents. PBS KIDS should not introduce the LGBTQ lifestyle to young children. PBS KIDS should stick to entertaining and providing family-friendly programming, instead of pushing an agenda.
According to the PBS Foundation, “PBS stations reach more children, and more caretakers of young children, than any of the children’s TV networks.” For example, “18 million kids watched PBS last year.”
Many families have already discovered that PBS KIDS, largely supported by federal funds, is anything but family-friendly. However, 1MM is warning anyone who continues to watch the channel.
Please take action and help get the word out about this ridiculous use of taxpayers’ dollars to indoctrinate children to the LGBTQ lifestyle.
