Ok, Nickelodeon is airing a special tonight on gay parents called “My Family Is Different”. On this special edition of Linda Ellerbee’s “Nick News,” a group of children, ages 13 to 15, discuss what it means for children to be raised by gay parents.
Obviously, this hasn’t gone over too well with the Christian right.
I listened to a spokesperson for the “Traditional Values Coalition” on the radio tis morning state that this show is designed to teach kids to be gay. Linda Elerbee, the shows host states that “The program is about tolerance … It is not about sex. It does not tell you what to think.”
So, the question is, if you are a parent, (or even if your not) would you allow your kids to watch this show and what are the reasons for your choice? Do you think it is appropriate subject matter?
