I've started to blog several times this morning and nothing is coming forth. Brain freeze.
Last night we watched a sappy movie on the Family Channel. I do love silly movies now and then especially with a little romance thrown in. This movie was especially stupid with some seriously bad acting, but still we watched it until the end. Other than being a total waste of time, there was one thing that really bothered me. In the movie, one of the minor characters comes out of the closet and confesses on Christmas Day that he is gay. Other than the dad, who is portrayed as the stupid one, everyone is happy for the gay guy. It is as if TV Land is telling us how we are suppose to respond if we are "the cool" characters. The fact that the issue was brought up on a family channel and on a kid movie is bothersome. It is not just the gay issue, it is the whole sleeping around and other things that you would rather not have to explain to your kids just yet. So the moral of this story is to not let your children watch even "the safe" channels on TV by themselves. In this day and age, you have to be like a hawk carefully watching everything that is going on around your nest.
