Behind the News (also known as, BtN), is a long-running news program created by the ABC. The show is described as a “high-energy, fun way for Upper Primary and Secondary students to learn about current issues and events in their world.” BtN is aimed at school children aged 8-13 years. Many schools show the program to their students each week.
This week, in yet another attempt by the ABC to make the Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras appear family-friendly, an episode of BtN was dedicated to the debauched event. The episode begins with a group of children praising the event as, “beautiful,” “flamboyant,” and “inclusive.”
The folks at You’re Teaching Our Children What? have encouraged parents to, “call your school immediately and warn them not to expose your child to this highly sexualised propaganda!”
The episode titled, Mardi Gras History, can be viewed below.
