It’s not enough that Tennessee’s House education subcommittee passed Sen. Stacey Campfield’s moronic “Don’t Say Gay” bill yesterday. They also had to get the word out that letting your kids watch ABC’s Modern Family would be an act of moral turpitude.
“I don’t think Modern Family is appropriate for children to watch,” [Subcommittee chairman Joey] Hensley said solemnly after a Nashville preacher testified children might find out about gay people by seeing the show even if teachers aren’t allowed to say gay in schools.
We’re going to set aside our feelings about a grown man named “Joey,” and address the larger issue: If Modern Family is a no-go, what other shows should we be protecting out kids from?
Quite a lot, actually. Looking at the recent Nielsen ratings for the top 20 shows on television, it appears the boob tube is rife with homosexuals. To wit:
Grey’s Anatomy: Dr. Callie married her girlfriend last spring. Also, all that female-centric discussion of “feelings” can’t be good for growing boys.
How I Met Your Mother: Neil Patrick Harris might play a nice, normal sex addict on the show but, off-screen, he’s always talking about his husband and kids.
2 Broke Girls: While Girls does a good job of reinforcing how sick and twisted people from New York City are, it’s produced by that notorious Hollywood homosexual Michael Patrick King, who foisted Sex and the City on the world.
Glee: We understand that Kurt, one of the girls on the show, is vaguely butch.
The Voice: Even stalwart heterosexual boys cannot be trusted in the presence of Adam Levine
So what’s left? From what we’ve seen, Teen Mom and Animal Hoarders are totally free of anything remotely gay. Enjoy!
