Disney Will Have First Same-Sex Couple, Some Bigots Are Pissed

Disney will feature it’s first same-sex couple in Good Luck Charlie. It’s about time and pretty freaking cool if you ask me. An episode will feature a family with two moms. “This particular storyline was developed under the consultancy of child development experts and community advisors. Like all Disney Channel programming, it was developed to be relevant to kids and families around the world and to reflect themes of diversity and inclusiveness,” a Disney Channel spokesperson said.

It’s about time the kids with same-sex parents and members of the LGBT community started to get representation at an early age. Most of what happens in your formative years begins to feel normal, so just seeing a lesbian couple will totally de-stigmatize it for a lot of people. It always bothers me when parents say, “How am I supposed to explain two men kissing to my kids?” I don’t know, the same way you explain a man and a woman kissing? So sorry that you have to actually teach your kids something and can’t allow them to raise themselves or have television do it for you?

According to TV Guide, “In the storyline, parents Amy and Bob Duncan (Leigh-Allyn Baker and Eric Allan Kramer) set up a playdate for preschooler Charlie (Mia Talerico) and one of her new friends. When the kid arrives, the Duncans learn that Charlie’s pal has two moms. That’s fine, but the potential new friendship is put to the test as one mom chats with Amy, and the other is stuck listening to Bob’s dull stories.”

      It is completely ludicrous for anyone to be so openly against this development. I say about time! The theories behind those who've already condemned Disney's initiative on this matter are not only close-minded, but self righteous. Why must someone take personal offence to the introduction of an openly gay couple on a television show when, if it bothers you that badly, you can simply switch it off? Nobody is forcing you to watch it, so attempting to force Disney to withdraw this addition is equal parts hypocritical and ignorant. By all means, censor your own children if you feel you must, but don't hinder the chances for development of awareness, compassion and understanding in a child's formative years.

      Well done Disney, it's about time you brought yourself up to speed. Just don't use it as a gimmick.

      1. Couldn’t have said it better.

      I don’t know why anyone would be upset about this. I think it’s great and totally agree with steph33xx.

    3. Happy to see disney doing this. There is nothing wrong with having a gay couple. Seriously there is no big deal. if its on tv and kids ask about two women living together. It easier to explain in your home than in public. And explaining it is as simple saying what they would see a heterosexual couple doing. And if you don't like it don't watch it. No need to complain or anything like that.

      this is a huge disappointment. Disney is supposed to be good family fun. now they are exposing young children to this kind of stuff and saying its okay. I really hope they dont go through with this idea.

    5. Liz says:

      Okay I know this is not relevant but i don't give a damn. This means they can should and would do this on Disney's new shows that are currently in development. (Liv and Maddie, Girl Meets World ,etc.) I now have restored faith in Disney

      Having a same-sex couple on Disney isn’t gonna hurt your kids you ignorant piece of crap. If anything it’ll teach them to be a better person than you are! Stop being ignorant. I think this is WONDERFUL! They should have done this a long time ago. Disney World even celebrates gay-days here in Florida! Some people need to get their heads out of their asses. There is NOTHING wrong with anyone being gay or showing other kids that they’re not alone or the only different ones!
