As a parent and a member of OneMillionMoms.com, I am deeply disappointed in your company's decision to sponsor ABC Family Channel's program, "Becoming Us," that airs on Monday evenings at 10:00 pm ET/9:00 pm CT.

If your company is unaware of the content of this program, I would like to take this opportunity to share it with you so that you will more thoroughly understand my concern.

This show is extremely graphic and includes mature content such as transgenderism, gender reassignment surgery, and foul language.

Not only is this program insulting to conservative viewers and traditional families, but it also focuses on controversial subjects that your company would probably not desire to be associated with.

As a consumer, I am asking you to stop your company's advertising support of ABC Family's "Becoming Us" program. I urge your company to place "Becoming Us" on your "do not advertise" list immediately! My decision to support your company depends on it.

I look forward to hearing from you regarding my concern.

| HAVING TROUBLE TAKING ACTION?

Keep up the great work! Both sponsors One Million Moms previously contacted, David's Bridal and Olive Garden, are no longer supporting the program "Becoming Us." Their ads were not present during the last several episodes.

ABC Family Channel's lineup already includes several anti-family programs, and that list continues to grow. The newest docu-series "Becoming Us" began airing this summer on Monday evenings at 9:00 pm ET/8:00 pm CT, but ABC Family has pushed it back later to air it at 10:00 pm ET/9:00 pm CT. The previews airing earlier include the tagline "genders may bend, but family never breaks." This reality show is about a son's journey as he struggles with his parents' divorce and his father's transition to living as a woman. The boy's girlfriend also happens to have a father who is transgender and transforming into a woman.

In recent episodes, one of the teen's friends admits to being trans and never told anyone before except for family members. Another segment during the program includes a young unmarried couple discussing their sex life and how good it is. Other topics include how courageous and brave transgender people are for becoming who they really are supposed to be.

The show is attempting to normalize the transgender lifestyle and make it appear OK while targeting the young audience watching a supposedly family channel. Many families have already discovered that ABC Family is anything but family-friendly. But because "family" is part of the network's name, we thought a warning should still be sent out for anyone who continues to watch it.
