Urge David's Bridal to Pull Sponsorship from 'Becoming Us'

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 Monday, June 8, at 9:00 pm ET/8:00 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. 

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 the channel. 

The first episode included the teens going bra shopping with their Dads, a discussion about gender reassignment surgery, and foul language. The son is realizing that his Dad will be officially gone when the boy parts are changed to girl parts. The son has lost his male role model at the same time that he is becoming a man himself. The father doesn't want to be called Dad any longer, but the boy's mom said she earned that title, so they decide he is to be called Parent. The entire situation is confusing for the family going through this, not to mention for young viewers who may be watching. 

Please use the information we have provided to contact David's Bridal Inc. and ask that they pull their financial support from "Becoming Us."
