On this week’s episode of “The Loud House,” a popular animated show on Nickelodeon, a gay couple is introduced during an episode called “Overnight Success” airing on Wednesday.
During the episode, a reoccurring character named Clyde McBride shows up at 11-year-old Lincoln Loud’s house for a sleepover. Clyde is accompanied by his two gay dads: Mr. Howard McBride and Mr. Harold McBride.
“Remember, Clyde, no nuts, no gluten, no sugar and be careful with orange juice,” says Harold. “You know how you get with pulp.”
This is certainly not the first time Nickelodeon has pushed LGBT messaging via its shows.
Nick Jr. previously featured transgender drag queen RuPaul in an episode of their hit show “Bubble Guppies” in June of 2015. He voiced-over “RuPearl, a stylish sea snail and announcer for a ‘dress up race’ held during Fashion Week in the underwater city of Bubbletucky,” reports Lego.
Further, in December of 2014, the network confirmed that their show, “Legend of Korra,” featured a lesbian romance between the two lead characters. This is an animated show, as well.
This goes beyond just Nickelodeon, of course. The rush to push LGBT messaging has accelerated as of late. Disney Pixar’s animated children’s movie, “Finding Dory,” for instance, shows a lesbian couple.
In the eloquent and humorous words of comedian Steven Crowder, leftist Hollywood is “gaying all the things.”
