In a surprise “Pride Month” move, the iconic children’s show, Sesame Street, announced its support for the LGBT movement.
In a kind of one-two punch, the combined illustration and message abandon any notion of childhood innocence while simultaneously promoting the politicization and sexualization of kids.
Do preschoolers really need to have the words gay, lesbian and transgender and the types of ‘families’ they might form injected into their vocabulary and psyches at such a tender age? Do they also need to take sides in a political war in which they have no chance of understanding until they are much, much older?
“We are creating a generation of super-sexualized children,” said Fred Kaeser, the health director for the New York City Department of Education in his Psychology Today blog. “A significant number of children are actually demonstrating sexual interest and/or sexual behavior at earlier ages than ever before in our society. Kids are being exposed to sexual matters that were previously only in the purview of adults and the greater the exposure the greater the consequences can be.”
As a political matter, Sesame Street is no longer neutral in the LGBT culture wars. This tweet reveals that Sesame Street is overtly pro-gay, declaring its solidarity with organizations like the Human Rights Campaign (HRC). At the same time, the children’s show is clearly untethering itself from whatever connection it might have enjoyed with the world of orthodox Christianity.
Sesame Street is part of a larger trend
Sesame Street is not the only child-oriented business to use “Gay Pride” month as a marketing opportunity.
Lego, Mattel, and Hasbro have begun approaching the creation and marketing of their toys to appeal to both genders, according to Fortune Magazine. And likewise the companies have stopped dividing toy space into pink and blue aisles and ceased using boys or girls categories in reporting revenues.
The report said industry executives call it a sign of the times, with millennial parents in particular wanting to avoid having their children learn “stereotypical” gender behaviors.

PITN – The Bible reads in Proverbs 22:6 (KJV)…”Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
BUT, not this sinful way!
This is the immoral indoctrination going on in our society today, starting with our youngest children and going on into the high school years.
What does the Bible say about the practice of homosexuality?
Society should be reminded of what the Bible says in Leviticus 18, when God spoke to Moses and told him to speak to the children of Israel about their relationships with God and the walk of God’s earthly people. God told Moses in verse 22, “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.”
Verse 29 and 30, “For whosoever shall commit any of these abominations, even the souls that commit them shall be cut off from among their people. Therefore, shall ye keep mine ordinance, that ye commit not any one of these abominable customs, which were committed before you, and that ye defile not yourselves therein: I am the Lord your God.”
Isaiah 60:12 (KJV) – For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish; yea, 2 Chronicles 7:14 (KJV) – If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14 (KJV) – If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
