Disney Channel put a lesbian couple on Good Luck Charlie and so many parents are saying their children will never watch Disney because of this. I think they made the right choice because all children need to be taught that being gay is acceptable.

You know what? All those people who decided they will boycott Disney because of a gay couple need to really look at their own values and the message they are REALLY giving their children.

I saw something about it on Facebook. I read the comments on it and then watched the clip and I don't get why there are so many negative comments about it. Disney did it very tastefully.and I have no issues with gay/lesbian people.

Our kids don't watch a huge amount of TV, and we don't have the Disney Channel. I've watched the clip with the two moms though, and I thought it was very well done. There are lots of reasons for parents to swear off Disney, but for crying out loud, this short scene shouldn't be one of them.

What's interesting about the scene is that even if you have issues with homosexual or lesbian couples there aren't any judgements in this bit. It's pretty neutral. I have no issue with gay marriage or lesbian parents, but even you do it's a fact of life that your kid may befriend a child with two moms or a family with two dads might move in next door. And that's the tone of this. The only statement it makes is that same sex couples exist.

And of course the little kids in the scene could care less. They just want to play together.
