Roseanne Barr and John GoodmanA popular sitcom known for pushing the boundaries is set for a "reboot" in a few weeks – and it's expected to push even farther this time around.

The director of a pro-family media watchdog is warning parents of the controversial content on "Roseanne," which is scheduled to make its comeback at the end of March on ABC. Monica Cole, director of OneMillionMoms, says the show – which had a popular nine-season run during the 1990s – will bring back the original stars, including Rosanne Barr and John Goodman who are cast as grandparents in the resurrected sitcom.

"The [nine-year-old] grandson is gender-binary; he's gender-fluid," she explains, "which means the grandson will be wearing little girl's clothes [and] he will have character traits representing both male and female. We just want to warn parents that even though this show has always pushed the boundaries, the reboot will continue to push the envelope – but on a much different level."

ABC TelevisionCole tells OneNewsNow that what the producers of the show and the network are doing is very destructive.

"... They are purposefully including content that would confuse children, such as gender dysphoria," she describes, "which is a mental disorder, as it has been described by professionals and doctors."

The activist mom says it's not okay to promote a mental disorder as normal. She encourages concerned parents to sign an online petition telling ABC they have no intention of watching the new "Roseanne" and won't support a network that purposefully confuses children.
