Sunday’s episode of The Disney Channel‘s “Good Luck Charlie” emphasized a diverse addition to the neighbourhood. The episode, “Taylor Has Two Moms” features a pair of lesbian moms and according to TheBlaze:
A Disney Channel spokesperson told the publication that the episode was “developed to be relevant to kids and families around the world and to reflect themes of diversity and inclusiveness.”
When Amy told Bob that Taylor’s parents would also be joining them while the girls played, the two began debating Taylor’s mother’s name. Both said they had individually met the woman, but while Amy said her name was Susan, Bob remembered meeting a parent named Cheryl.
Since they weren’t together at the time of the interactions, the two remained at odds.
When the doorbell finally rang and Taylor arrived with her mothers, Charlie’s parents realized that they were both right: Susan and Bob were, indeed, speaking about two separate women.
“Taylor has two moms,” Bob said after answering the door.
“Nothing gets past you, Bob,” Amy said.
Of course, One Million Moms (AKA One Million Muffin Tops), the same group who famously stage a failed boycott against JC Penney after they chose Ellen as their spokesperson — are pissed about this! They’re already making a stink about the couple appearing on the show and say:
“Just because something may be legal or because some are choosing a lifestyle doesn’t make it morally correct. Disney should stick to entertaining instead of pushing an agenda. Disney decided to be politically correct versus providing family-friendly programming.”
We think this is awesome and a total step in the right direction! A great example of acceptance to set for such young viewers! Nice one, Disney! Check out the clip below:
