One Million Moms Upset over Two Mommy Household in Upcoming Episode of "Doc McStuffins"

There's a cartoon on Disney Junior called "Doc McStuffins" that been around since 2012. It features a young woman who fixes toys with help from her toy friends.

My own kids have aged way past this program, but I understand that it's a good show and well liked by many families.

But this weekend's episode has the One Million Moms group all worked up. It features an episode with lesbian moms -- which is one mommy too many for the OMMs:
Alerting all parents! Many have found the animated program, “Doc McStuffins,” to be a clean show; 1MM has recently found that this to be no longer true. In a first for Disney Junior, an upcoming episode of “Doc McStuffins” airing this Saturday morning, August 5, 2017, will feature a family with two moms. The preview clearly states “the doll family” consists of two females and two children. One mother and child get separated from the other mother and child, but reunite in the end with a family hug. The plot of the story is the family gets separated in an earthquake because they do not have an emergency plan.
I learned from the OMM alert that the woman who created "Doc McStuffins" and who acts as the show's executive producer is a lesbian mother -- which makes me want to check out this episode even more when it shows up online!

Feel free to write a note to Disney and let them know how happy you are when they create LGBT-inclusive programming. You can follow the link and send an email to Disney and let them know how much you appreciate this program.
