Parents, it’s no secret that the responsibility is heavy when it comes to that which we allow our children to watch on TV. As the old saying goes, “junk in, junk out.”
Despite the fact that kids programming should be made for audiences of children, the truth of the matter is that these days, it’s anything but. Between Netflix having very vague maturity guidelines, and YouTube Kids being corrupted by hackers, it’s hard to tell what is safe and holy and just anymore in kids entertainment.
That couldn’t be more true this week as the popular kids’ cartoon, “My Little Pony,” introduces its first lesbian couple in what critics are calling a “bandwagon” attempt to normalize a popular, secular belief.
As an ode to Pride month, Aunt Holiday and Auntie Lofty appeared over the weekend in an episode of “My Little Pony” called, ‘The Last Crusade.’
Despite their titles of ‘aunt,’ the show’s producer Michael Vogel dismissed any speculation that the pair were siblings or even friends, confirming on social media that the characters were indeed a lesbian couple.
