The advance of homosexual activism in U.S. schools has been sneaky and secretive, it is being revealed, and at least one U.S. senator wants to put a big neon sign on how it’s being done in televised entertainment as well.

Sen. Roger Marshall of Kansas is calling for a new television rating system to alert viewers to LGBTQI content in programming, reports KSHB in Kansas City. Not to abolish it – merely to identify it.

The Christian Action Network called for the same kind of rating 23 years ago, in 1999.

The Republican lawmaker wrote to the TV Parental Guidelines Advisory Board and requested that the board update the rating system to flag subject matter related to sexual orientation or gender identity, the same topics that Florida recently put off limits for teaching to young schoolchildren.

Marshall’s letter puts the blame for “irreversible and harmful experimental treatments for mental disorders like gender dysphoria” squarely on “disturbing content” which has been “promoted in children’s programming.” It goes on to say: “The motivations of hyper-sexualized entertainment producers striving to push this content on young audiences are suspect at best and predatory at worst.

“ … In light of parents raising legitimate concerns on sexual orientation and gender identity content on children’s TV shows, we expect the Board to fulfill its responsibility in updating the TV Parental Guidelines to reflect these concerns.”

Also signing the letter were Republicans Sen. Mike Braun from Indiana, Sen. Kevin Cramer from North Dakota, Sen. Mike Lee from Utah and Sen. Steve Daines from Montana.

Marshall’s office gave examples of shows that should be subject to the rating change, reported the Kansas City Star: Danger Force and The Loud House on Nickelodeon, and She-Ra and the Princesses of Power and the upcoming Dead End: Paranormal Park on Netflix.

The letter gives a May 18 deadline for the Board to come up with a plan, and asks for an in-person briefing with the Board.
