Save Peppa Pig (from the gay lobby)!

Peppa Pig is a charming animated cartoon series for children, which makes for excellent family viewing.

But, now, it seems that even a wholesome children's programme, like Peppa Pig, is fair game for the gay lobby and its political allies - who, it would seem, will stop at nothing less than complete control of every "teaching" medium - which is what children's programming is, at the end of the day.

In a recent interview with PinkNews, an online portal for "gay news", Norman Lamb, who is seeking the position of Leader for the LibDems, has said that imposing gay characters on children's programmes, like Peppa Pig (Yes...the show was mentioned by name!), "should not be out of bounds." Actually, in the context of the interview, he refers to gay "couples"!

And, in the same interview, he states: "Our broadcasters must realise that sexuality is not, fundamentally, about who you want to have sex with – but who you are, and who you love".

But, if that rationale were allowed, then, one necessarily has to address the subject of "having sex", which is, of course, an absurd recommendation for children's programming.

This recommendation is made even more absurd when one looks at the Peppa Pig website. The website is split into two halves, one for the kids and one for the parents. And, in order for children to join the "Muddy Puddles Club", the parent must be the one to sign up the child.

Of course, this is only proper order.

And, in the same way, it only makes sense for the parents to be the ones to teach their children about love and sexual intimacy - not Peppa Pig, and certainly not Norman Lamb.

This petition calls on the company which produces Peppa Pig, Entertainment One (UK), to resist any pressure to sexualise children through their programming.

Please sign this petition and say 'No Thanks' to the sexualisation of our kids.

Let's let our kids be kids.

Thank you!

Management of Entertainment One Ltd.: Don't Sexualize Peppa Pig

Dear Management of Entertainment One:

Your series "Peppa Pig" is a wholesome, well-produced children's programme which is loved by tens of thousands (or, maybe millions!) of kids and parents around the world. As you say in your plot summary: "Her adventures always end happily with loud snorts of laughter."

Basically, you let kids be kids.

As you may know, one of the LibDem candidates, Norman Lamb, who gave an interview with PinkNews (an online portal for gay news), said that gay characters and couples should, "not be out of bounds" on programmes like Peppa Pig.

I beg to differ. I would say that children's programming should not at all be sexualised in that way.

I am writing to ask that you keep your programme, Peppa Pig, free from such sexual influences - those influences which can have the effect of destroying a child's innocence.

Please don't change your show.

Please let parents be the ones to educate their children about love and sexual intimacy.

And, please, continue to let kids be kids.

Thank you.

 

Sincerely,
[Your Name]

Save Peppa Pig (from the gay lobby)!
