PBS Kids odlučila je baciti bombu na bezazlene gledatelje. Tijekom 22nd sezone Arthur, epizoda je izbacila sociopolitički šokant: gospodin Ratburn je homoseksualac. Ali padovi šoka tu nisu završili, PBS je odlučio pogurati još dalje ... Gospodin Ratburn oženio se sa svojim homoseksualnim partnerom.
Vijesti je otišao virusnih online sljedeće članak iz TVLine.com, which recounts how the moment occurs, writing…
“[…] the gang spots Mr. Ratburn having lunch with an uptight woman (voiced by special guest star Jane Lynch), who tells Mr. Ratburn that he’s “too soft” and needs to “toughen up.” They decide that marrying her will make Mr. Ratburn miserable, which will then make his students miserable, so they set off to nip the nuptials in the bud. Little do they realize, the woman in question is actually Mr. Ratburn’s sister, who just wants the best for his big day.
“Arthur and his gang of mostly recognizable animal friends show up to the wedding ready to object, but when they see who Mr. Ratburn is actually marrying — not to mention how happy the couple appears — they decide not to sabotage their teacher’s big day, after all. […]”

The real shocker? It’s not just a gay marriage by the way, it’s an inter-species gay marriage.
The kids are depicted as responding happily knowing that Mr. Ratburn is marrying another man/rat/etc., than someone they thought was pushy. Even though the show doesn’t really bother to explain why they would be happy Mr. Ratburn was marrying someone that just as well could have been bad for him.
There were a few people who offered pushback against the encroaching of Left-wing sociopolitics taking over kid’s media, with users like Tracer explaining that she was appalled at the show indulging in such topics.
Neki su tvrdili da pokušaj udaljavanja djece od zdravih moralnih načela nije dobra stvar jer obično imaju djecu da gledaju emisije poput Arthur jer su se usredotočili na čvrsta moralna načela. Različiti ljudi su uzvratili udarac, osuđujući Boga i zdrave moralne principe.
Ljudi koji su htjeli spriječiti djecu da budu preplavljeni vrstom otvorene politizacije koju vidimo u svim drugim oblicima medija bili su preplavljeni ljevičarima koji su opravdali emisiju koja promiče homoseksualni brak.
Things took on a completely different flavor on Twitter, where there’s practically zero major pushback or if there is it’s not showing up often in the trends.
Gospodin Ratburn uspio je postati virusan na Twitteru gdje se mnogi ljudi međusobno tapšu po vijestima.
I ova je epizoda bila divlja, Arthur i njegovi prijatelji mislili su da se udaje za ovu žestoku ženu i pokušao ih rastaviti samo kako bi doznali da je dama njegova sestra, a da je gospodin Ratburn oženio momka iz trgovine čokoladom u koju su ranije odlazili. epizoda https://t.co/mOXjvjBw34

The media are also unironically championing for pushing sociopolitical messages into kid’s shows, with outlets like Buzzfeed chiming in to further signal boost the message.

There are a few scattered responses among the throng of support for PBS promoting a gay marriage in a kid’s cartoon. Some people pointed out that this was the sort of thing people complained about when they said that the gay agenda was expanding.
Remember when we were told there was no “gay agenda” and they had no interest in coming after children?

Few people questioned the intent of the move, saying that it seemed like a way for PBS to promote the LGBTQIA agenda, and they didn’t really feel it was natural.
I don’t know bout this. I always question when a show introduces a gay character or haves a already known character comes out as gay because they wanna market to the LGBT to make more money especially after JK Rowling

Others just wanted some kind of sanctity maintained for the shows they grew up with… a sense of honesty and integrity for the original intention of the show: to help kids establish sound, respectable values.
Childhood ruined. What’s next? Rugrats reboot where Stu leaves Didi, and marries Chaz? Jesus fucking christ. Can just ONE thing on this planet go without being politicized for fucks sake?

This isn’t even the first time that Arthur has dabbled in the risque taboos of sexual politics. As pointed out by ThΔt Desert Waff,
Bila je epizoda Razglednice s Bustera iz 2005-a ili tako da je zabranjen prikaz lezbijskih majki dok je Buster bio na putovanju. Ova epizoda je dobila dovoljno zazora da bi se izvukla, kako piše u članku objavljenom u siječnju 27th, 2005 New York Times.
Naravno, epizoda se uspjela probiti kroz mrežu i postala je legenda unutar LGBTQ zajednice.
Ipak, to je postao uobičajen trend u gotovo svim većim show ovih dana, osobito one usmjerene na djecu. Vidjeli smo Pustolovno vrijeme pretvoriti Princess Bubblegum u lezbijku, vidjeli smo Steven Universe upoznati djecu na lezbijsko vjenčanje, and Netflix’s Voltron otišao je na dodatnu milju čine glavni lik gay.
This kind of escalation is becoming more and more commonplace, especially for kid’s shows and material aimed at young people. However, those who control the media waves insist that there is no agenda, and that the propaganda that they’ve been feeding you isn’t part of some inculcation campaign to normalize certain controversial themes.
Worse yet is that you’re not even allowed to criticize it lest you be labeled a “bigot” or a “fascist” or a “homophobe” or a “transphobe”. The idea is to diminish any sort of critical thinking levied against what they want your child to watch and what they want you to believe. Dissent is becoming outlawed in the court of public opinion.
Moreover, they keep pushing and pushing and pushing, and they won’t end until the purity of your child’s soul is laid splayed open on the ideological altar of the Intersectional Inquisition, where it will be forcibly tainted until the end of time.
