Anyway I know I am an adult, but I am a big fan of all Disney and Kids shows. Yet yesterday while watching the episode “Dad Overboard” of fairly odd parents, I got really disgusted and shocked, of the amount of sexism that is being taught to kids.

Apparently Timmy’s dad feels useless, so he decides to become a woman name “Linda”. Then later on when Timmy’s Teacher “Mr. Crocker ” finds his life useless as well, and decided to become a woman named “Linda” also.

There is a huge mistake in showing that to kids, kids are very receptive to these ideas.  If a man wants to become a woman, because he’s useless, and not worthy of being a man. Than this show is clearly stating that woman are useless. So kids, women are useless, and you should turn your self into women, when life hits you hard, and you find your self useless!
