Walt Disney must be spinning in his grave.
The NY Post reports today that:
Disney’s ‘Charlie’ has ‘two moms’ episode
Disney Channel’s “Good Luck Charlie” will feature an episode next season involving a child with two moms.
In the episode, Charlie (Mia Talerico) has a playdate with a pal who has two mothers, according to TV Guide.
That plotline will be secondary to the main story in that episode, according to the report.

"Charlie" is actually a very young girl, the little sister of the family. Although the article goes on to talk about "sensitivity," it is basically an attempt to mainstream gay couples and parents, make them appear normal, "just like everyone else." Gays represent two percent of the population. There are about that many Jewish and a probably more Evangelical families or families where one child has a debilitating disease in America. Why doesn't Disney show them? "Good Luck Charlie" is a show set in Denver, not the show business communities of New York or Hollywood. It seems that Hollywood now wants to pretend - or advocate - that the rest of America become more like Hollywood.
At least when Disneyworld in Orland started their annual "Gay Day" visitors' event, a family knew up front what who was going to be seen there and could chose to stay away - or even boycott it, as the Million Moms do. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/05/10/disney-world-gay-days-one-... But with a tv show, one barely knows what is being shown if you aren't monitoring the weekly listings.
