PBS joins Nazis, KKK in opposition to gays


PBS thinks lebsians are unacceptable role models for children. On an episode of the bunny-travelogue "Postcards from Buster," Buster goes to Vermont and learns about maple syrup from a couple of real-life kids and their real-life lesbian parents. That's them up there, on the right. The ones who look like human beings.

Child-hating Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings denounced this episode, and PBS PULLED IT OFF THE AIR. I just threw up in my mouth. The head teacher in America and the Public Broadcasting Corporation don't want children to see loving parents who are gay. This despite the fact that a majority of Americans think being gay is a-okay.

PBS C.O.O. and professional coward Wayne Goodwin said

The presence of a couple headed by two mothers would not be appropriate curricular purpose that PBS should provide.

But the federal funding-grant stipulates:

Diversity will be incorporated into the fabric of the series to help children understand and respect differences and learn to live in a multicultural society.

Write to Buster's bosses and tell them they are ruining PBS. Use the form here.
