Buster Bunny's Lesbian Adventure

It's amazing to me the idiots who seem to think that a children's TV program that casually mentions something remotely related to lesbianism is somehow going to turn all children into gays. This is your tax dollars at work here, folks.

The nation's new education secretary denounced PBS on Tuesday for spending public money on a cartoon with lesbian characters, saying many parents would not want children exposed to such lifestyles.

The not-yet-aired episode of "Postcards From Buster" shows the title character, an animated bunny named Buster, on a trip to Vermont -- a state known for recognizing same-sex civil unions. The episode features two lesbian couples, although the focus is on farm life and maple sugaring.

The episode information was removed from PBS's site, but it still remains in the Google Cache. Quoting the page:
While there, we visited Emma, David, and James, who live with their two moms, Karen and Gillian. Karen and my mom used to work at the same newspaper together.
Oh yeah, that'll make all children turn gay. Idiots.

Criminy, if the United Church of Christ can accept gay characters with open arms, why can't our government?
