‘Good Luck Charlie’ Introduces Disney Channel’s First Same-Sex Couple

Mon, January 27, 2014 11:14am EDT by 1,370 Comments

Watch ‘Good Luck Charlie’ make television history, introducing the network’s first lesbian couple.

Some sitcoms go out with a whimper, but not Good Luck Charlie! On the Disney Channel comedy’s penultimate episode — the two-part series finale airs Feb. 16 — viewers were introduced to Susan and Cheryl, the first confirmed same-sex couple ever to appear on the kid-oriented network.

“Taylor has two moms!” proclaimed Bob (Eric Allan Kramer), upon meeting the two women, to which sassy wife Amy (Leigh Allyn Baker) responded, “Wow! Nothing gets past you, Bob.”

This is a huge move for Disney Channel, which has never featured an openly gay character, much less a same-sex couple — no matter what everyone may have speculated about High School Musical‘s Ryan Evans.

The icing on the cake for HollywoodLife.com was seeing Awkward star Desi Lydic as one of the moms!

Disney Channel Aims To ‘Reflect Themes Of Diversity And Inclusiveness’

Though the introduction of a lesbian couple is, naturally, being met with some opposition from conservative watch groups, Disney Channel stands by its decision. The characters were meant to reflect today’s world, as many viewers are young children with same-sex parents.

“This particular storyline was developed under the consultancy of child development experts and community advisors,” a spokesperson for Disney Channel said when the casting was first announced in June 2013. “Like all Disney Channel programming, it was developed to be relevant to kids and families around the world and to reflect themes of diversity and inclusiveness.”

HollywoodLifers, are you glad that Disney Channel took this huge step in introducing its first same-sex couple to viewers? Drop a comment with your thoughts on the network’s bold move below.

Stop saying its okay to be gay because God loves everyone. Yes he does love everyone. No he didn’t create you to be gay. He led you to make your own choices to see if you could make the right and he isn’t for the act of being gay but he loves them. I don’t hate on them, but I think what they do is gross. I have plenty of friends who are gay but I don’t approve. There’s a difference and I believe every kid needs and mom and dad. We were created like that. Marriage is one man plus one woman. I might get attacked on here but who cares? Freedom of speech and I like traditional marriage. How does this affect me? I see and hear about it and I still live in this world. God loves everyone, but not the bad things they do. The bible is against the act of homosexuality not the people. Get your facts right. Because God loves all, doesn’t give you the right to make an excuse for being gay. It’s the same as using that excuse for sinning. Sorry, but you can’t change the bible.

You do not chose to be gay. Also, many Catholics and Christians believe God has a plan for everyone, don’t you agree? God made us all the way he wanted us; thus, gay people are the same and us and were born that way.

The Bible also says women are considered filthy on their periods, do not commit adultery, do not make others FEEL INFERIOR(yes, not allowing gay marriage does that), and says you can not marry after divorce. Are you perfect? Of course not.

I value your opinion, but encourage you to be more open minded. Being gay is not a choice. Do you think gay people choose to be made fun of and become victims of hate that you too are exemplifying? Did you chose to be straight?

Also, many children, including myself, we’re raised by one parent or none at all. I would rather have two gay parents than one or none, as long as I was being taken care of and loved.

“God loves everyone, but not the bad things they do.” You do bad things too.

It’s not an “excuse” for being gay. What’s your excuse for being straight?

Walt Disney wouldn’t allow people of color in his movies either, or people with disabilities. That doesn’t mean the modern company should have to stay in the stone ages with their beliefs. And it certainly doesn’t mean children should have to go without representation in their favorite TV shows.

We are not discriminating against those who are gay, and although you may think that we hate them – we don’t. We love each and everyone, just not their lifestyle – there is a difference. The problem with so many people is that they look at one Bible verse and ignore the rest. If someone truly believes in God, they will follow his commands. Clearly, in Leviticus 20 it says that it is a sin if a marriage is not between a man and a woman, and if anyone becomes a follower of Christ, they have to follow in his ways as well. So yes, anyone who believes in Him will have everlasting life, but to truly believe in Him, they have to follow in his footsteps. If someone who is gay believes in God, they will realize that they are going against Him and will change their ways.

I’m sorry, but that’s like telling a drug addict or an alcoholic that in order to truly follow God they MUST discontinue their addictions. Yes maybe they should, and maybe it is displeasing to God, but don’t pretend it’s easy to forgo. Homosexuality is the same way, changing their ways isn’t as simple as deciding not to eat kiwis ever again. It may mean walking out on the one they love, or have a family with, or being with someone they aren’t attracted to or can’t love because of the fear of displeasing God. I completely understand your point that one must follow God wholly, but there is so much more to it. I am a straight Christian and I believe that Jesus will accept all of his children if only they turn to him with open hearts. Maybe some will change their ways, but none will ever be without sin. Only Jesus was truly pure. It is not our job to impose change upon their hearts, it is our job as disciples of Christ to lead the lost to our savior, and leave the life changing and conviction to him. We are not meant to judge and change people’s hearts, we are meant to lead the lost to Christ and guide them along his path so that they may hold lamps of their own. We are not to worry with them changing their ways to follow Christ, when he is in their hearts he will work in ways incomprehensible to us. We are not the ones meant to tell the lost what is wrong in their lives, we are to be messengers of Christ. Let God work within them, but do not turn them from him, once they are of Christ, He will do as is fit in His eyes. Have faith that God will prevail, and teach others of his love, not of human judgement.

Actually, it looks like you need to spend some more time on the Bible yourself because clearly it also says in Leviticus 20 that a marriage is between a MAN AND a WOMAN and that it should not be the other way around. God does love everyone, but He doesn’t always agree with their lifestyle – get your facts straight before you twist words out of other Bible verses.

I love how several times, people have challenged you Christian bigots about why you don’t protest and fight other things the bible says should be condemned, like women on their periods or shellfish or clothes made from different materials, and yet not ONE of you has said something about it, or answered why it’s ok to pick and choose what you wanna use out of your holy fairy tale book.

I think that shows me that you only want to hate people for no good reason and hide behind something else so that you don’t have to answer for how wrong you are, how horrible you are as a human being. Praise Disney!

I grew up in church, I’ve read the bible, it was a requirement for all in my congregation. I suppose you want to pretend like what I’m saying doesn’t make sense because you know I’m right. It says in the very same book, Leviticus, you know, the one you keep taking your “gays are bad” bullcrap from, that wearing clothes made of two materials, and eating shellfish, are just as bad as homosexuality. I’m sorry Karren but perhaps you’re the one that needs to read that book you cling to so desperately, maybe you missed those parts when you were picking and choosing what you wanted to believe in or not.

While I agree that we Christians should be consistent in our argument, I believe many people on both sides here are debating with false information. Women on their periods, clothing of two cloths, shellfish, hooved animals, AND homosexuality are all sins condemned under the Old Testament. While those who have accepted Christ into their hearts are living under the New covenant which preaches grace and forgiveness and purity to all who believe and accept Christ as their savior. While many of those Christians here seem to be ignorant of the true worth that has been given them through Christ, you also should know that those Old testament laws (including those about homosexuality) are no longer relevant. While all of these things may very well be sin, if one accepts Christ, their sin is not seen by the eyes of God.
Why are we here preaching hate and claiming Christ at the same time? God is love. Sin is sin. And all sin is washed clean by Jesus. The hate in the world today makes my stomach turn.
Those of you here being attacked by us Christians please know that not everything you hear from the mouth of man is as intended by God. If you turn to Jesus you will not be turned away. Not for anything. No sin is greater than God. We should be spreading the true gospel and using this as a doorway to lead people to Christ regardless of the sin in their lives. This could be a wonderful awakening and many professed Christians are grossly misusing this situation. Minister, spread love, don’t turn more and more from Christ because of your personal dislike or misguidance. Please Lord help those who know you to realize the greatness of their actions, and please God use those who understand your message of love and acceptance to bring the lost to you. Not to change their life style or who they are, but to lead them to you regardless of sin. None is without sin, please stop allowing your people to turn the lost away because of their blindness…
God bless each and everyone of you here. Especially those spreading hatred in the name of God.
Lord, forgive them, they know not what they do.
Amen.

I understand where you are coming from, Sami, and as a Christian, I realize now that I should use this opportunity to guide others to God’s truth, not shun them away from Him. However, I have to disagree with you in the fact that although God does love everyone and accepts them even despite their sin, He cannot simply ignore their sin. If an individual is truly a follower of Christ, they will have to realize that they will still need to change their ways. A Christian cannot be a believer of God and still do wrong because they think that He will accept them no matter what.

I am not trying to say that one can comfortably continue in sin and truly follow. I realize that this is not possible, but it is not our job to preach about that change to others. When you truly accept Christ you become painfully aware of your own sin. I know this. Christ will do the necessary work in their hearts once he is accepted in. If we preach about needing to change before we preach about his grace, no one will listen. Every one will feel as though a great change is being imposed upon them rather than a beautiful truth revealed. It hurts me deeply to see so many people turning from Christ because of his messengers telling of the hardship before the grace. Being a Christian is definitely not easy, and yes sin must be repented for and kept from as much as possible, but the unconditional grace and love even when we mess up is so much greater than the pain.

I am very glad that you see the magnitude of this opportunity, if we agree on nothing else, praise God someone sees a purpose in this.

Karren, why do you think John 3:16 is in the New Testament. Jesus died for us because God knew there was no way possible that we can get to Him because we were too sinful. Im sure there was homosexuality back in those times, just like there is now. But Jesus’s whole reason for dying for us is so we can have a relationship ALTHOUGH we are sinners. We were born sinners and we will die sinners. Homosexuality is weighed the same as any other sin. So please, stop acting like homosexuals are on some totally different universal degree of sin than anyone else.

Hey Beth! I have noticed the same thing and have been making mental comments but not posting about it and for that I apologize. The reason that we do not follow those rules that you mentioned is that they were part of the Old Covenant where such rules were instated to show how difficult it would be to follow such a set of rules that are a series of though shall and thou shalt nots. The point of it was to show a need for a savior since we can’t do this on our own. This is a new concept to me and I don’t have a firm grasp quite yet but I’m working on it. When we were given the New Covenant that came with Christ’s birth, death, and resurrection, the former laws were no longer valid as the the New Covenant trumped them. Although several of the places in the Bible condemning homosexual relations (not homosexuality mind you) are in the Old Testament thus are under the Old Covenant laws, there is also New Testament scripture that upholds that portion of the law. Homosexual relations are not of God’s intention for us, thus sin. I hope this clarifies although I know it probably won’t help your mind set any. We all have our opinions and as long as you do not hate in the name of your opinions and your religion, all should be hunky dory, right? I am a 17 year old male Christian who supports separation of church and state. Although I support biblical adherence, we cannot force our views and morals on others, they have to follow their own path to wherever they go. I think that the way Disney introduced this new era in humanity, whether I approve of the practice itself or not, was tasteful and well done. Someone had to make the first step, I just always thought it would be Nickelodeon.

I have to disagree with you, Wes. As a Christian, it is our job to help others find the path that leads to Christ – we cannot just hope that they will find it for themselves. Also, as Christians, we cannot praise what God calls sin. I believe this was not a bold move, but rather an unnecessary move. Despite everyone’s opinion on same-sex couples, Disney Channel had no reason to display it for one episode. What point did they prove in that?

Hey Karen. I understand we cannot just hope that they will come and follow the path of Christ by themselves as we are called to be ministers of the Word to all of the world. But, as we are supposed to do so with tenderness and acceptance and to do so, we must allow God to work in them and not be on their backs about their sin. We are supposed to show what great light comes from a life in Christ and share the Word of God with them, but at the end of the day, we have to end our part and let God and them finish the rest. It is a fine line between doing what we need to do for God and doing too much that could potentially turn them away. We cannot praise sin. I agree. That is the problem with the way the media today portrays homosexuality. They don’t just fight for their equal human rights, they glamorize the lifestyle. I watched the episode then found this forum and saw that they portrayed no blatant sinful act by the moms as I feel the sin lies in the practice of homosexuality, not the emotions or being defined as one. The fact that they are raising a child could be sin, yes, but as this is, despite our chagrin, going to be a major part of our society in the coming years, I just found the way they portrayed them since they felt it was needed to have them in the episode was tasteful for what it was. From a business stand point it was the right move, but I much would’ve rathered the absence of them altogether. I feel the point they proved is that they are a part of society and decent people and we cannot just ignore their existence, hoping they will go away. I don’t like how they glamorize Gabe misbehaving or deceiving the parents, or the disrespect between the spouses and kids to their parents either. I just thought that the point of saying they exist and they are not monsters was potentially a needed one, although the sin itself is monstrous. They portrayed the people, not the sin I guess is what I am trying to say. Sorry for droning on.

It was gruesome and unimaginably painful. And He did it for you and for me. Christianity is not about outdated teachings. It is about the love and the justice of the Creator for His creation.

Not all Christians preach Hell fire and Damnation. You cannot stereotype just as much as professed Christians and claim it’s not hypocritical. There are those of us who believe in grace and unconditional love and acceptance. As a Christian who has been on here fighting for your side. This comment is extremely offensive to me. I simply ask that you consider that there are those who are level headed and open minded fighting for equality in all of this who are Christian and simply wish to lead the lost to Christ and not to preach hell fire and damnation upon anyone for any sin.

When you stereotype an entire group of people into one misjudged thought like that it only displays ignorance and simple minded anger on your part. I have been standing strong for the equal treatment of homosexuals for a very long time and am struggling to reveal the truth of grace and acceptance for all, but it is comments like these that severely hinder efforts from both sides to provide common ground.

I understand your anger, I share in it often, but anger is not the way to prove your point, nor is comparing a religious preference to a sexual one and claiming that Christians are screwing up children.

Please stop to consider that there are Christians here who are desperately attempting to gain the support of their fellow Christians toward your point of view.

Thank you.

Christians are a hindrance to scientific and technological development. The great scientist of the past reached a limit to what the knew. These greats then proclaimed that it must be the work of god only to have the next generation to solve the mysteries later. We can’t afford to wait for the next generation anymore, the problems of this world are too great. We need people that will actually look for answers not turn to a book filled with fairy tales made up by a bunch of desert primitives.

I am not asking that you stop to consider Christians as a whole because I realize what our reputation is and that this is very much like a white person asking for consideration on the part of an African American during the civil rights movement, but there are those of us who are on your side.

First of all, it’s spelled “divine”. Secondly, and more importantly, cross-shaped proteins don’t prove anything about the existence or non-existence of God. So, maybe calm down there.

GOD didn’t make you. Your mum’s egg and your dad’s sperm made you.

Oh come on, tell the truth. You probably dropped cable because you can afford it being a Christian Science and technology probably scare you and limit job opptunties. It’s ok you can just sit around and wait for god to talk to you. (Ha ha) You might get luck and find a talking burning bush outside to keep you entertained.

I personally don’t care if someone is gay or straight. But I do kind of think this type of situation maybe too much for younger viewers.

Why would that be too much for younger viewers? Children watching this are simply seeing a happy, normal couple and their kid. Two people who love each other the same as Charlie’s parents. So what they’re the same gender. Don’t get your panties in a wad just because you don’t want to explain to your dumb kid that two women or two men can love each other the same.

If you can explain to your kid that a magical obese man in a red suit rides 12 flying reindeer and delivers presents to all the children in the world in one night then I don’t think your kids will not be able to comprehend this.

I am glad we all have opinions. I do not hate anyone. But it is so disgusting to think about a man being with a man and a woman being with a woman, it is plum sickening. I wish they had stayed in the ‘closet” instead of dancing around like they owned the world. All I know is we all will stand before God in the end and if you are doing anything against what He says, then “Good Luck Charlie” when it comes your turn to stand before Him.

As usual, both sides are at fault. This argument will NEVER end. Conservatives and Christians use the bible to defend their views and attack gay marriage. While the LGBT community is too pushy with their agenda on the opposite end. They care too much about what others think. People were put on this Earth to exercise their free agency (the right to make their own personal choices) and no one can fringe on that. What each person chooses as their sexual preference is their decision and theirs alone. If you choose to marry someone of the opposite sex, power to you. But don’t go making a fuss about it and throw a hissy fit every time somebody disagrees with you. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. And the opposition needs to stop attacking and judging others, the bible says, “Judge not that ye be not judged. For that same judgment that use, will ye also be judged by.” So the only way to resolve this is respect each other and to stop arguing and bashing the opposite side.

So why is no one talking about the disrespectful, insulting way that Amy treats her husband? “Am I sure that I’m right and you’re wrong? Always” and “Nothing gets past you, Bob.” It seems perfectly acceptable this way for women to mock men constantly. Is this the kind of attitudes we want our kids to pick up?

You are so absolutely correct! I used to watch this show and think it was funny. Now that you mentioned that, I have to sit back and think. Amy’s character does criticize Bob a lot. I also just remembered that she loves to be the center of attention. What a way to teach kids about vanity.

My husband and I do joke around with each other, but not in a way that is demeaning. He is more of a joker than I am. If he does say something that crosses the line (unintentionally), I will tell him. We are not a perfect couple, never will be and never claim to be. We do try to set a good example for our children.
