Parents complain about everything! They showed strong disapproval of the kids program Postcard from Buster for showing two lesbians couple. Bear in mind, the episode had covered other topics (such as how maple sugar is made in Vermont).

i wouldnt say that..its broadcasted from a kids channel and is marketed towards children, its just the content is made to appeal to adults too. like kids movies..that tend to have adult jokes because the film makers know parents will be in the audience as well..so they throw little sly jokes in there that they think only the "adults" will get :dknow:


gay content being moved to nonfiction? lol oh how ironic :D


holy crap ive had a over a 1,000 posts? :eek:

Pretty soon little Billy can't be friends with little Johnny anymore because they hug eachother :none: :rolleyes:

mom - Billy! You big gay-mo!
Billy - I was just giving him a hug mommy, because he gave me his GI Joe..
mom - That's what this dicease starts with, now go to your room! ............... Not you Johnny!


Wouldn't life be easier on those kind of people if they could lock their kids in a cage until they're 55? :rolleyes:
