Change the Channel

I've just learned that certain "special interest" groups are demanding that ABC cancel a show that hasn't even aired yet.


You know, I'm so tired of these people who try and dictate what everyone else can watch, just because the group is "offended"! Get over yourselves! The show is called "Work It"...a story about how two blue-collar men who've been unemployed for some time have no choice but to dress as women to get jobs.

And yet, the "groups" in question claim that the show (which they haven't even seen yet) defames transgender people. Of course, I won't mention which groups are behind this ridiculous and self-absorbed issue, because I actually support their efforts....except on this issue, that is.

How ignorant is it that they're out there, making demands based on what offends THEM, and all without having solid knowledge of what the show is actually about? Not to mention, the arrogance of telling US what WE can and can not watch? Personally, I hope ABC picks up their proverbial balls and stands their ground. And to those groups...please, just change the damn channel and let the rest of us enjoy that little thing we call FREEDOM!
