Parents, look out: On Monday evenings there will be a new sitcom premiering in your nightly channel lineup that will feature this horribly confused and highly dysfunctional family in a supposedly unscripted drama. Unfortunately, this isn’t your typical, run-of-the-mill, low-budget, agonizingly cheesy, overrated comedy. God knows there’s already plenty of those bombarding the entertainment world, making it near-impossible to even flip on the tube without being treated to a barrage of mistimed punchlines and acting so poor it sends me groping for a Nicolas Cage joke. (Or maybe Keanu Reeves. There’s just so many to choose from.)
Anyway, as most of America is still utterly consumed and hopelessly obsessed with Mr. Bruce “Call Me Caitlyn” Jenner, the ABC Family network will be premiering “Becoming Us” — a series in which a teenage boy named Ben “learns to live with his dad becoming a woman.” Apparently the whole God-forsaken thing will revolve around Ben, his friends and his family as they learn to adapt to Charlie (the father) deciding to live his life as Carly. The network is marketing the show as “a generational story of a loving family and circle of friends supporting one another through this unfamiliar situation.”
Tom Ascheim, President of ABC Family (who, ironically, has three kids himself) says, “It’s a moment in our society when the world is focusing on transgender issues, so it only helps us!"
Uh, helps us do what, Tom? Flush family-friendly entertainment down the toilet while simultaneously polluting the airwaves and corrupting the minds of innocent kids and teens? Oh, ok. I mean, if that’s your goal then yeah, you’re doing a bang-up job. Bravo!
He continued: “We’re targeting 14-34 year-olds in a period of their life when they’re discovering who they are…the issues around gay rights, including LGBT rights, are their civil rights. I think it’s the rest of us that need to catch up to the younger people!”
As you might expect, most of the sycophantic trolls on social media are hailing this as a “reality show” that will put transgenderism in a positive, family-oriented light and will even help to educate children and teens on the normalcy of transgenderism. Toss in the fact that Ben’s dad divorces his mother and his girlfriend’s dad is also becoming a woman and you wind up with the broadcast equivalent of a modern-day Sodom and Gomorrah, sexually-hedonistic narrative.
The whole thing is terribly perverted and shameful.
Of course, the timing of this premiere couldn’t be more perfect (not to mention suspicious), what with all the brouhaha about Bruce Jenner, who seems to be under the delusional impression that he’s a woman, even though he had to have feminization surgery, breast implants and a trachea shaving procedure to “become” a woman. It’s too bad he still has male chromosomes and a penis. Somehow that just doesn’t say “I’m a woman,” but he gets an A for effort, I suppose.
So, as if Hollywood hasn’t already shoved enough homosexuality, bisexuality and lesbianism into our movies and TV shows, now they’ll be throwing yet another alternative lifestyle choice in our faces, whether we like it or not — and all on a network whose slogan is “A New Kind of Family." I’m thinking ABC should start rebranding themselves and quick. Maybe even look for a new slogan or tagline. Something a little more accurate and honest, like: “The Men In Heels Network” or “The Call Me Caitlyn Network.” And while we’re on the subject of honesty, let’s see if ABC will throw up a disclaimer at the beginning or end of each episode citing the fact that 41 percent of transgenders attempt suicide. I’m sure that would make the ratings soar through the roof.
ABC has now become one of the gayest networks on television, maybe even gayer than NBC and MTV, which is quite an accomplishment, albeit a despicable and ridiculous one. The homosexuality advocacy group GLAAD even praised ABC for dedicating almost 50 percent of their primetime show hours to featuring LGBT characters. Let me say that again: the media-monitoring organization that literally does nothing but police all forms of media in the U.S. looking for bias, intolerance or discrimination toward the LGBT community, praised ABC for their promotion of LGBT characters and alternative lifestyle ideological narratives.
I know there are plenty of folks out there who would rather I just leave this whole issue alone. In fact, I’ve already been told by some of my more conservative readers and followers to just move on and find something more important and relevant to talk about — something like the growing Hillary campaign debacles or this so-called "police brutality" case in Texas. (As if we don’t have enough pundits in the media flapping their gums about that already.) The irony is that, while conservative cowards are busy concerning themselves with “more important matters,” the liberal progressives across America are wielding the transgenderism issue as an ideological weapon, while simultaneously convincing everyone that it is one of the defining issues of our time. (This is why they keep winning elections, folks.)
I mean, think about it. Any time a transgender man puts on a dress and eyeliner or uses a public women's restroom, liberals erupt in thunderous applause like Neil and Buzz just landed on the moon.
Every prominent person in the media and politics, from the talking heads on TV to President Obama, felt the need to publicly praise Bruce Jenner for deciding to have breast implants and wear lipstick. Social media went nuts — it was the number one trending story on Facebook and Twitter and the Caitlyn Jenner Twitter account racked up over a million followers in less than four hours. Our culture has become nauseatingly obsessed with this smut.
You see, shows like “Becoming Us” signal our society’s full-fledged departure from reality. Progressives have decided that they hold the power to destroy and then remake the very core definitions of “man” and “woman.” They’ve become little gods, ruling from thrones of self-righteousness at the center of their universe. If we allow them to wield this power, and in many ways we already have, then we’ve essentially served America up on a silver platter and handed it over to these psychotic fools. Conservatives can yammer on endlessly about health insurance, immigration, foreign policy, education and economics, but by the time progressives have finished obliterating any sense of morality left in America, none of that other stuff will even matter. America will already be a wasteland.
This is the path we’re on, people. This is the agenda being pushed. These are the ideologies being taught. And it’s not just in the news headlines or on the magazine covers at your local supermarket. It’s coming right into your living room. It’s targeting your kids. It’s targeting your family.
This show is nothing more than transgenderism education for kids, dressed up under the guise of a comedic sitcom. If I was a wild conspiracy theorist, I’d parallel these sort of TV shows with the Nazi’s Hitler’s Youth program. I’d say that this is liberalized Hollywood’s methodology for indoctrinating kids and teens with progressive ideologies.
I’d say the timing of this program’s premiere was synchronized in perfection with Bruce Jenner’s public debut as Caitlyn. And I would say that it’s a desperate attempt by progressive’s to convince all Americans that transgenderism is normal, acceptable, beautiful and wonderful.
But, I won’t say any of that.
Even though I just did.
