BBC has a kids’ show called the Bedtime Hour, and co-host Cerrie Burnell only has half an arm, due to a genetic disorder. Parents are complaining that they won’t let their kids watch the show for fear Burnell’s disability will scare the kids, or that the BBC is going “overboard with diversity.”
This is the same mentality that says, “Don’t talk to kids about death or illness. Lie to them.”
This is the same mentality that says, “Don’t let the kids watch ‘scary shows'”, not out of concern for their spiritual development but out of a desire to keep them “happy and carefree”, to avoid having to deal with any kind of sadness or pain.
