The ninth and final season of the animated series "My Little Pony" on the Discovery Family Channel will feature a lesbian couple who take care of a school-aged character named Scootaloo.
The episode, titled "The Last Crusade," introduces the same-sex couple Aunt Holiday and Auntie Lofty in the middle of Gay Pride Month, which the program's producers call a "happy coincidence."
It's the latest children's program to target kids with the LGBTQ agenda. Last month, The PBS animated series "Arthur" featured a gay wedding.
And The Cartoon Network, popular with children, encouraged its young viewers to celebrate Gay Pride Month during the month of June. The network is also featuring a line of "Pride Month" merchandise at its website.
Activist Mommy Elizabeth Johnston pushed back against the inclusion of the lesbian "My Little Pony" couple on Twitter, posting: "Why must a show about ponies of all things have a same-sex couple? Just insane. Watch what your kids are watching, folks!"
Ken Ham of "Answers in Genesis" weighed in too, tweeting: "It seems more and more companies are jumping on the bandwagon of the war against children to destroy them by drawing them into depravity."
Seems more & more companies are jumping on the bandwagon of the war against children to destroy them by drawing them into depravity. Reminder to parents as you consider tv programs, purchase books, toys etc for children to keep this in mind at all... https://t.co/q80PHyl7R8
