A pro-family group says PBS has jumped on the bandwagon to introduce children to the transgender lifestyle by airing a 90-minute documentary on the subject.

Cole, MonicaThe program, "Growing Up Trans," aired at 10:00 pm Eastern/9:00 pm Central on June 30. Monica Cole, director of OneMillionMoms.Com, an online division of the American Family Association, tells OneNewsNow, "This show is normalizing the transgender lifestyle, just making sure it is okay and using young cast members to lure a young audience."

Cole goes on to explain the premise of the program.

"A generation ago, it was only adults who were changing their genders, but now its kids," she laments. "Because of new medical options, younger and younger children are trying out or experimenting with the transgender lifestyle."

On the topic, One Million Moms' page reads, "Many families have already discovered that PBS is anything but family-friendly. But 1MM thought a warning should still be sent out for anyone who continues to watch the channel."

While the Associated Press has written a one-sided, positive review of the program, Cole points out that another transgender-friendly show aimed at children is airing on TLC. "I am Jazz” is about a young teenager who was born a boy and has transgendered to a girl since the age of two years old.

One Million Moms is urging its supporters to take action and contact PBS.
