Article Comment: "Not right. Disney was always a wholesome family channel..... 'traditional families' (male / females couples capable of procreating). I agree with most others; if this is going to be the new norm at Disney Channel I will just stop watching all together. Disney was one of the last places a true American (Christian - seeing as how this country was founded on Christianity) could watch 'normal life' on TV."
Okay, FIRST OFF, traditional families are now male/female couples capable of having children? What about women who physically can not bear a child? Does that make them untraditional as well? And a "true American"? Really?! America was discovered by people trying to escape persecution: by people looking for a better life. A true American isn't defined as a die-hard homosexual-hating change-fearing Christian! There have been gay people as long as there have been straight people; the only reason it's becoming more of a visible normality is because gays are no longer being killed for their sexuality, unless you're talking about third-world nations, like Uganda, where the punishment for "acts of homosexuality" included the death penalty, until recently changed to life in prison (www.cnn.com/2013/12/21/world/a…). Being LGBTQ is NOT anything new!
Comment: "Well said Brian, Unfortunately, the other side thinks that gay people are normal, but they never will be. being gay has been & always will be a CHOICE."
Yeah, because we'd totally CHOSE to be the minority! Did you know that up to 40% of America's homeless youth is LGBTQ? Does anyone honestly think that they chose that? (www.lgbtqnation.com/2012/07/am…) People don't chose to be homosexual, or transgender, or queer. They were born that way, in the same way that heterosexual individual were born straight.
Comment: "Sorry - but an normal family is one man / one woman & a child. gay people with kids ARE NOT considered a normal family, they are considered pedophiles."
I don't know what to even say to this. Like...gah. Give me a moment. Ahhh okay. A pedophile is someone who is sexually attracted to children. A homosexual is someone who is sexually attracted to someone of the same gender. Can anyone tell me how the two are considered the same? Smh America.
Comment: "Well, the problem here (and increasingly in many venues lately) is the forcing of gayness in the WRONG places. And this show is a FAMILY show (and a very popular one, which we (up to now, anyway) have LOVED!), and on DISNEY, for crying out loud, which is "for kids". So whose bright idea was to invade GLC w/ the gay agenda?"
Yeah, it's a family show. Your point? And..."gay agenda"? Like what, gaining denied human rights?
Comment: "But please note that man and woman is the NORMAL way according to NATURE."
Homosexuality exists in hundreds of species. What isn't normal is hate. (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homosexu…)
Just...gah. The ignorance, intolerance, and overall hate is just astounding and disgusting.
I can only shake my head
Disney had interracial and interspecies couples, with and without children, but same sex is too much?
Also I am pretty sure those people fleeing from persecution you talked about were die-hard homosexual-hating change-fearing Christians, at the very least that is what the pilgrims were.
If the families are that anti-gay, they should shelter their kids from everything in the real world and go live without any common day technology, because that might as well be "unethical too".
But on a different note, I don't like that Disney is going gay. Not because of religion or anything like that, but because I like Disney the way it is now. I don't know why they would change it, other than the fact that they might be wanting to appeal to a different group of people out there. Because I think it might be nice for some kids as gays to know that Disney supports them and they aren't the outsiders of the world even though people make them feel like that sometimes.
So I guess I am sort of in the middle with this (:
This is Isa from Howrse btw XD
seedmagazine.com/content/artic… (Challenges a part of Darwin's theory of evolution; that is, sexual selection. This goes into homosexuality in the animal kingdom.)
I'm sure there's more, but these are some reputable articles about the topic that the Wikipedia article that was linked. (Just saying, these are all sources in the article...) Since, yknow, the article's sources weren't enough. Also, you have very insightful grammar and spelling...
I'm waiting for a smart-aleck 'tl;dr' response now...
You're right, some people are just so ignorant it's disgusting!
Such stupidity! And these are the people who claim to be "true Americans"
A gay couple on Good Luck Charlie?
More power to 'em, and it makes me miss the Disney Channel even more (I don't have cable because I can't afford it ).
^This comment absolutely disgusts me.
Being gay is completely normal
All these commenters offended me
And if my parents knew I'd be homeless too
Which is why I'm not coming out to them anytime soon
