Nickelodeon desensitizing children

Nickelodeon logoA children's TV network made dubious history last week, airing the first animated show featuring a "married" same-gender couple. And one organization is working to do something about it.

After The Loud House episode aired on Nickelodeon, which is owned by Viacom Media Network, OneMillionMoms.com issued an alert to members.

"One Million Moms is extremely concerned that the network that is designed for children will now be exposing them to inappropriate content, content that they're far too young to comprehend or understand," comments Director Monica Cole. "And it will likely bring up premature conversations about sexual orientation that is completely unnecessary."

Cole, MonicaShe accuses Nickelodeon of pushing an agenda.

"Networks, even children networks, are attempting to desensitize children and families in general," Cole contends. "This is just proof that Nickelodeon had decided to be politically correct instead of just providing clean, family-friendly programming."

The One Million Moms director adds that the Supreme Court legalizing same-gender marriage does not make it right or morally correct, so her organization, a division of the American Family Association, will be urging the show’s advertisers to pull their sponsorship.


UPDATE ...

Cole says her group is contacting companies about advertising appearing during the program.

"Currently OneMillionMoms is asking our supporters to contact Toys 'R' Us asking that they pull their sponsorship from the program The Loud House, which airs on Nickelodeon on Wednesday afternoons," she reports.

The show follows a trend that has inappropriate content on the children's network, Cole continues.

"This particular show ... took it a step further in exposing and introducing our children to LGBT content," she tells OneNewsnow. "When Nickelodeon doesn't have that financial backing or that financial support through advertisers, then hopefully the show will be canceled."


OneMillionMoms is a division of the American Family Association, the parent organization of the American Family News Network, which operates OneNewsNow.com.
