One Million Moms Group in Tizzy Over Same-Sex Background Kisses in Episode of "Star vs. the Forces of Evil"

Have you heard of the Disney cartoon, "Star vs. the Forces of Evil?" Me neither. My son outgrew cartoons a few years ago, so I'm now totally out of it when it comes to this kind of thing. It's a show about a magical princess named Star Butterfly and her friend Marco Diaz and it's been around for two seasons.

The Disney cartoon is in the middle of a controversy over an episode that just aired featuring a boy band concert. The band performs this song called "Just Friends," which ends with many of the audience members kissing on cue.

You would barely notice the controversy, except that the One Million Moms culture warrior grew issued a press release alerting us that there are boys kissing boys in that audience! From their email alert:
Alerting all parents! In a first for the Disney Channel, a Disney XD show subtly displayed several gay kisses in an episode that aired a couple of days ago. The “Star vs. the Forces of Evil” episode featured a scene at a boy band concert where several people, including same sex couples, kiss on cue with the music. The gender of various other kissing couples in the crowd is not always visible...

This is the last place parents would expect their children to be confronted with content regarding sexual orientation. Issues of this nature are being introduced too early and too soon, and it is becoming extremely common and unnecessary. Disney has decided to be politically correct versus providing family-friendly entertainment. Disney should stick to entertaining instead of pushing an agenda. Conservative families need to urge Disney to avoid mature and controversial topics.

TAKE ACTION: Sign the Disney Pledge stating you will not support Disney unless they produce family-friendly entertainment.
Interestingly, One Million Moms wasn't terribly concerned about the two girls kissing in the top right corner of the second pic!

Anyway, thank you One Million Moms! Without you, I would have never discovered this cartoon.
