Disney Channel and Nickelodeon: Have at least one gay or lesbian main character...
Change.org ^ | Ashlee Edwards

Posted on 03/13/2013 9:48:15 AM PDT by Sopater

In this day and age, young adults and tweens are influenced so much by what they see on tv. Disney Channel and Nickelodeon have shown young love on their shows for many years. They show 11 and 12 year olds flirting and wanting to have relationships. That's fine, tweens have crushes too. But all they've ever shown are straight characters, never openly gay ones. By not including gay characters, they're isolating an entire population of children, who look up to people they see on tv. It is shown that most children know by the time they're 4 years old who they're attracted to. Gay kids need a good role model on safe, appropriate channels, to show them that they're not alone, and it's perfectly normal to be feeling what they feel. I would like Disney Channel and Nickelodeon to have at least one main character who identifies as gay on one of their shows. This could save thousands of lives by showing kids they're not alone, and it's about time these networks show gay, as well as straight, relationships.

Who is "Change.org"? Isn't that Obama's campaign group or something? These people need to be stopped.

They must ‘get them while they’re young’. Honestly, why do these people insist on destroying a child’s innocence? Kids that young don’t think about sex no matter how much the Left wants to foist that perception onto us. If they HAVE heard about sex, they are usually grossed out. LET THE LITTLE CHILDREN HAVE THEIR INNOCENCE! They will be beaten down by life early enough as it is.

Disney owns ABC, and that seems to be the rule on all ABC and Touchstone-produced prime-time comedies.

this is nothing more than conditioning for molesters advocacy. if this were not tv, it would immediatly be called a criminal act and prosecuted.

time for a criminal investigation of the staffers who wold deign to approve this.

One word to change.org: NO!.

Peddle your smut and perverse lifestyle elsewhere. Don’t even think you can hide your predatory instincts and desire to promote pedophilia behind the name of change.org.

Promote pedophilia at your own peril.

“It is shown that most children know by the time they're 4 years old who they're attracted to.”

This is part of the pro-homosexual propaganda that permeates the media. Children at 4 don't know who they are attracted to. 4 year old boys and girls aren't even attracted to the other sex yet. The deliberate sexualization of children and exposing children to homosexual propaganda is not an accident. It is a plan to create willing young sexual companions to the adult homosexuals who have so much power in the media. It is also a plan to isolate and demonize those who believe in traditional values.

Change.org they are also LIARS. Just another Marxist group trying to destroy the morales of America.
Think about this, Homosexuals make up about 2% of the population. Not ALL homosexuals want to get married, only about 10 to 15% do, so America is suppose to chance thousand of years of history to accommodate between .03% to .02% of the population. Who should determine OUR National Morality the 99.7% or the .03%?

Such a small percentage of the population is gay but they are promoting it everywhere as if it were half. I’ve seen impressionable friends of my kids trying (or claiming) to be gay because they think it’s cool. It’s not ok to mention any opposing values to kids, but it’s mandatory to promote LGBT.

Since only about 2% of the people self-identify as homosexual, they shouldn’t have more than 2% of their characters be gay.

Which means that on a typical show, only 1 out of 50 characters should be gay.

And yet I rarely see a show with more than 10 recurring characters on it where at least one of the characters isn’t gay.

Glee for example, has had at least 6 gay people, although I guess being about glee club, there might be a propensity to have more gays. Degrassi is another show with more gays than you find in the general population.

It’s like they are trying to cement the fiction that 10% of the world is gay.

How many gay congresspeople are there? There may have been 6 so far total. I know gay people, but I bet most of us would find that no more than 1 or 2 people we know are actually gay.

And even when you talk about celebrities, the gay celebrities can almost be named. They are extremely well-known, because they get so much more press. But if you look at a typical movie, and look at all the names on the credits, I bet no more than a couple of the hundred-or-so names are actually gay.

On the other hand, Christians are vastly underrepresented in the media.

There was just that story from Oklahoma, where an 11-year-old nad his younger cousin raped their 6-year-old sister.

That idea comes from a too-early bombardment of sexuality on our pre-pubescent children.

But yes, gays to realize that in order to be a stronger political force, they need more kids to choose to be gay. Because they all know it is a choice, not genetic.

I find it unreasonable to for these homosexuals to advocate an adult behavior being promoted to children. (see criminal act)

There is set level of adult and non-adult viewership. Disney is to be G PG or PG-13 those should be off limits to the deviancy recreuiters. If anything there should be an “H” for v-chip purposes which allows parents to block such sexual content.

Told my kids, when they came home form middle school asking all about the talk of the hallways, who’s a lesbian, who’s gay, how do they know, and what do I do when they hate me for not being gay?

they don’t know if they’re gay or whatever, sex is for adults and it’s for marriage, so just ignore it.

Got them out of there asap. they are thriving in an environment with boys, girls men and women, learning math, science, classic lit (homer, herodotus, Shakespeare, austen) language, not Spanish, and sports.

They talk about normal sex where appropriate and they learn about decision making, not being thrown o situations too early.

TV is dvr’ed for full control, and there is one tv in the house. internet was allowed at age 13. No facebook no data plan on phone.

I know all parents whose homes they go into. Weird things still happen, but they’re discussed and used as how to deal with really weird stuff after they get out in it and have to discern by themselves.

It’s not that hard to do.

Disney was taken over by the dark side many years ago. the money involved should tell any informed person.

I think it is more about allowing anything than just homosexuals. allow any hedonistic act. infidelity, fetishes, drugs, etc. hollyweird performers by profession are to have no identity and with no identity they are in a constant loss of self.

Being in Canada, when I go to the link and then to the lead web page, change.org/en-CA, it defaults to Canadian petitions only. Among them currently, is one from an organisation called, "Community Living Toronto" which asks for support for a petition to "Reduce Transit Fares for Individuals with an Intellectual Disability".

(sarc.) The cynic in me (unfortunately, often very strong), says that since Tranna is often the cause of Liberal or NDP governments both federally and in Ontario, would this petition not mean that, if successful, most of Tranna should get reduced transit fares? Does that mean those in the hinterlands who visit Tranna, would pay more than full fare to subsidize the lefties in Tranna? (/sarc.)

Now, being serious, if you go directly to the link, Reduce Transit Fares for Individuals with an Intellectual Disability, the first comment, by a Mr. Rivers of Tranna, explains the source of many of the problems that Europe, Canada and the US suffer from, "It is a FUNDAMENTAL ENTITLEMENT"! While those with disabilities often receive very limited pensions, and I feel that they should get a break on transit fares to allow some independence and reduce taxpayer costs, I take offense to the many things that many in our society now feel "entitled" to! Reminds me of that line from Dire Straits' Money for Nothing!: "I want my MTV!"

Children at 4 don't know who they are attracted to

At age 4, my kids were attracted to "The Lone Ranger" and "Hot Wheels Cars", respectively. Suppose I can get a grant to study them?

4 years old....jeez, I bet the publishers of this "study" don't have kids of their own. Or, they have an agenda. Or, both.

Nick and the Disney Channel were only watchable from the 80s to 1995. After that it became manufactured mush used to sell crap and push agendas.

Nick already had a show on their “Teen Nick” network with a teen lesbian.

Most everyone on Disney these days seems to be pretty gay.

“...Kids should look up to their parents...”

But on Disney shows the children and tweens always have snappy sarcastic lines when talking to adults. One never hears a “yes sir” and rarely a “please” when asking for something.

The constant wisecracking comments directed toward parents is why I first locked out the Disney Channel. Now there are other reasons too.

Yes, they do look up to people they see on tv, which is exactly why the fag lobby wants a fag character on every show, so that more kids will misguidedly look to them as role models.

I’ve raised four children (two boys/two girls), and my oldest granddaughter. NONE of them showed any interest in the opposite sex until, at the earliest, 11 or 12 years of age. NONE of them exhibited any indications of sexual identity/persuasion, other than normal curiousity, before age 10. These loons who spew such crap about sexual orientation being fixed by age four need to be publically flogged.

Tune in to almost any show on any station and you’ll be assaulted by gays or the stoyline is gay related. If that’s not enough to turn the idiot box off, then try sitting through a 100 minute movie that commercials have stretched to 2 and a half hours. It’s no wonder why people are living happily tv free.

How does one present a 10 year old child as homosexual? Should one 10 year old boy try to intice another a 10 year boy into the “special room”? Kids 10 years old shouldn’t be “sexual” anyway. How is the gay thing supposed to be presented per individual kid? I know, the gay kid gets to wear a featherd boa in the class room!!!???

It's a fad and they don't understand the consequences. It's all, "ooooh, I don't get enough attention so I'll play like I'm gay, whaaaa, look at meeeee!!!!" Have you seen that commercial that states teen gays are 5 times more likely to attempt suicide than straight teens? Notice it's not successful suicides but ATTEMPTED suicides. Attempted = attention getting behavior. When they threaten suicide then everyone around them will tip toe around them lavishing love and sympathy and they get to bask in the glory getting everything they want. When they wear outlandish clothing and talk with a lisp and make ever so Grand Dame entrances they get... ATTENTION!!!
