Mommy Issues

Disney Channel Acknowledges That Gay Parents Exist, Infuriates One Million Moms


If you think it’s been too long since there has been a pointless One Million Moms boycott over some sliver of LGBT inclusion, today is your lucky day.

OMM, last seen frothing at the mouth over the Transgender Mary on the Glee Christmas episode, has picked the latest target of their ire: the house that Mickey Mouse built.

On January 28th, the Disney channel series Good Luck Charlie featured the first same-sex couple ever seen on the network.

Lesbian parents Susan and Cheryl were seen briefly as they dropped their daughter off for a play date with Charlie. The choice was not made lightly by Disney, who were reported to have consulted with multiple child development experts prior to the decision.

Naturally, OMM took it as a sign of the impending apocalypse.

In a recently released statement, they accused Disney of deciding “to be politically correct instead of providing family-friendly programming,” and pushed for conservative families to “urge Disney to avoid controversial topics that children are far too young to comprehend.”

There was no mention of the millions of real children that are being raised by same-sex parents, but then again OMM has never been a group to let reality get in the way of their agenda.

Their hate-on for LGBT-inclusive families knows no bounds, and they raised a similarly fruitless boycott of the ABC lesbian mom/foster parents drama The Fosters prior to its airing. That show is a hit that will soon return for new episodes on the network.

Someday, those One Million Moms (or is that 50,000?) will realize that LGBT inclusion is where the world is going and deal.

Hopefully, they’ll have a couple thousand gay kids that can show them the way.

    Of course these Disney lesbian moms look like Barbie dolls, but it’s a start. When Disney has taken up the “radical homosexual agenda” we can realize just how far to the right-wing lunatic fringe political thought has moved in this country. I’ve coined a new term for these people: “Reality Deniers”. They’re the people who believe that if you keep denying that something exists, it will eventually disappear. Y’know, stuff like homosexuality, global warming, corporate exploitation of workers and evolution.

    More like the million bitch march.. seems to be all they are capable of

    One million moms? Hardly. This group has never mounted a successful boycott of anything and are little a collection of busybodies who are starved for attention. Certainly they should know by now that going after Disney is a waste of time. But, then again, this appears to be a group with plenty of free time on their hands. Might I suggest that if they find “Good Luck Charlie” so offensive they simply turn off the TV and spend some time with their children. But of course that would mean they would also have to do some responsible parenting which I’m sure would be a new experience for many of them.

    Disney is ridiculous. The lesbians look like stereotypes from a hair salon used by female actresses. Ridiculous.

    Disney needs to get its house in order or it will find that there will be a backlash against it from the GLBT community.

    Someone should do a study on this group – just how many are there in the group and in what parts of the country do they live. What is their buying power – compared to the LGBT community. How many are married, divorced, etc. This group of fanatic hypocrites needs to be exposed for what they are – and are not, which is 1 million strong.

  • Dr Johnny

    They should be called One Thousand Moms. One million moms is a bit of a stretch!!! LOL!!

  • Tookietookie123

    @jimbryant: What are you talking about? Not all lesbians look butch, sorry for trying to destroy that stereotype you’re trying to affirm. The fact that they even had two moms on the show is a MASSIVE step for Disney, who caters predominantly to kids. They never had to put their foot into the LGBT subject, but they did and they came to our support, so stop berating their good deed.

  • newecreator

    Those two are a hot couple!

  • Respect4all

    @Tookietookie123: Much as I hate to defend jimbryant, he didn’t say anything about lesbians looking butch. That was your idea.

  • Respect4all

    @Taliaferro: Why bother? They’re irrelevant.

  • Harley

    OOM had to take down their twitter account because they only had 2300 twitter followers. Hardly “one million” as they claim. More like One Mom with too much time on her hands.

  • jimbryant

    Tookie, tookie,

    Actually, the image of the homosexual women on the Disney show was the product of homophobia. The reality is that many homosexual women reject long hair because it’s a sign of submission to men.

  • mcflyer54

    @jimbryant: And many homosexual women don’t reject long hair because they are mature and independent enough to decide for themselves how they want to wear their hair. The lesbian couple who live next door to me (with their 4 children) look much more like the Disney moms than the stereotype gay women you seem to identify with. When we stop generalizing about trivial things like length of hair and allowing other people to stereotype us we’ll all be better off.

  • EGO

    1 million women? 1 million Republican/religious fanatics!

  • Pix

    Those moms look pretty normal for moms of any orientation to me. Heck, the one with glasses reminds me of Lizzie McGuire’s mom.

  • Pix


    Just to be clear, I meant “normal for moms on the Disney Channel.”

  • Tookietookie123

    @jimbryant: How old are you? The times have changed, stereotypes no longer apply, we can look however we want and we do, the LGBT comes in different shapes and sizes, different colors from different a creeds and nations. If a lesbian woman wants short hair, then let her, it’s not because of this “submission to men” or whatever YOU think it is. As a member of the gay community, I’m shocked to see such a stereotype come up, and apparently you have a terrible reputation on this website and many believe your ability to comment should be revoked.

    @Tookietookie123: Best. Reply. Ever!

    Not all lesbians look like Peppermint Patty. …not that there is anything wrong with that.

  • Dakotahgeo

    If it weren’t for OMM (One Million Misfits), I’d have absolutely nothing to laugh and giggle about in life! A constant cesspool of phlegm pouring out of their oral cavity!
