Disney channel is said to have cast a lesbian couple for the 2014 season (and final season) of their sitcom Good Luck Charlie.
“Like all Disney Channel programming, it was developed to be relevant to kids and families around the world and to reflect themes of diversity and inclusiveness,” said a Disney Channel spokesperson.
Some celebrities, such as Miley Cyrus, support Disney. Miley posted on the Internet saying “I commend Disney for making this step into the light of this generation.”
However, there are many that are displeased with Disney’s decision to add the lesbian couple to the show. Commenter paidtoplay on TV Guide’s article about the lesbian addition to the show said “Regardless of your stance on gay rights, some subjects aren’t for children,” he said, “Homosexuality is reality but so are cigarettes, alcohol and war.”
Disney will introduce the lesbian couple in an episode where Charlie goes over to a friends house for a play date. The parents of Charlie’s friend…. lesbian.
