Family-friendly? Not so much

A pro-family group is concerned about two controversial shows airing on cable TV and has launched campaigns to get advertisers to pull their support.

ABC Family is airing a docu-series called "Becoming Us," which is about a son and his father who is transitioning into living as a transgender woman. The teenager's girlfriend also has a transgendered father.

Monica Cole is director of OneMillionMoms, a division of the American Family Association.  She tells OneNewsNow of the latest update on the OMM campaign to pull financial support for this program.

"So far, Olive Garden and David's Bridal are no longer sponsoring the program after we've contacted them,” she says. “And One Million Moms is now asking members to contact KFC and urge that company to no longer sponsor the program 'Becoming Us.'"

1MM says the show is "attempting to normalize" that lifestyle while "targeting the young audience watching a supposedly family channel." According to the pro-family group, many families have already discovered ABC Family "is anything but family-friendly."

Meanwhile, the FYI Network, owned by A&E, is airing a show that Cole says is making a mockery of marriage by encouraging infidelity.

"Currently, One Million Moms is urging Sears to no longer sponsor the wife-swapping show 'Seven Year Switch,'” she explains. “We're urging members to contact Sears using information readily available on our website." (See earlier story)

She hopes the campaigns will result in a quick end to both shows.
