But because "family" is part of the network's name, we thought a warning should still be sent out for anyone who continues to watch it.

Keep up the great work! Both sponsors One Million Moms previously contacted, David's Bridal and Olive Garden, are no longer supporting the program "Becoming Us." Their ads were not present during the last several episodes.
ABC Family Channel's lineup already includes several anti-family programs, and that list continues to grow. The newest docu-series "Becoming Us" began airing this summer on Monday evenings at 9:00 pm ET/8:00 pm CT, but ABC Family has pushed it back later to air it at 10:00 pm ET/9:00 pm CT. The previews airing earlier include the tagline "genders may bend, but family never breaks." This reality show is about a son's journey as he struggles with his parents' divorce and his father's transition to living as a woman. The boy's girlfriend also happens to have a father who is transgender and transforming into a woman.
In recent episodes, one of the teen's friends admits to being trans and never told anyone before except for family members. Another segment during the program includes a young unmarried couple discussing their sex life and how good it is. Other topics include how courageous and brave transgender people are for becoming who they really are supposed to be.
The show is attempting to normalize the transgender lifestyle and make it appear OK while targeting the young audience watching a supposedly family channel. Many families have already discovered that ABC Family is anything but family-friendly. But because "family" is part of the network's name, we thought a warning should still be sent out for anyone who continues to watch it.
Please use the information we have provided to contact KFC (YUM Brands) and ask that they pull their financial support from "Becoming Us."
