A group of Republican senators want a new TV rating created so parents can block their children from watching shows with LGBTQ characters.
The five senators from North Dakota, Kansas, Utah, Indiana and Montana sent a letter Wednesday to the TV Parental Guidelines Monitoring Board asking for the new rating.
“In recent years, concerning topics of a sexual nature have become aggressively politicized and promoted in children’s programming, including irreversible and harmful experimental treatments for mental disorders like gender dysphoria,” the letter reads.
The two-page letter signed by Sens. Roger Marshall, Mike Lee, Mike Braun, Kevin Cramer and Steve Daines “strongly urged” the TV group’s chairman, Charles Rivkin, to update its guidelines to ensure parents are aware of the “disturbing” content.
The call for action comes just weeks after video posted to Twitter showed a Disney executive vowing increased inclusivity with more minorities and members of the LGBTQ community as regular characters in its content by the end of 2022 – with 50% or more coming from “underrepresented” groups.
