For five seasons, Netflix’s Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous has built a loyal following among children and families. The animated show follows a group of teens that are stranded on the Jurassic island from the films.
The final season came out this week and parents were in for a surprise ending when two of the shows gay leads kissed. Some parents were unhappy as it seemed to come out of nowhere.
Watch the scene take place at the 1:55 minute mark.
The two characters were loners throughout the show. Their names are Yaz and Sammy. Yaz was originally kept apart from other love interests so she could focus on training. However, Sammy is a Texas farm girl that interacted with Yaz and tried to get her to stop being such a loner.
At first, the two were just friends but in the final season both of them open up about their feelings for each other. Yaz finally confessed her feelings to Sammy and the two kiss after a dinosaur attack.
Many on the left loved the scene while many parents were not happy. Several comments on Yahoo News highlighted how some parents felt about the scene.
“They can’t ever just have a regular show. They are corrupting all the little kids that watch this, this needs to stop,” wrote Jett.
“Well at least we’ve talked to my son about homosexuality, but this kind of stinks for the parents that have kids that aren’t really ready to discuss it. I get wanting some representation, but in a kid’s show? Next season they will have drag queens and transvestites being introduced,” wrote Mark.
Netflix has been accused of pushing liberal agenda toward kids for years now. It makes sense. Obama sits on the board of the company, but it makes it harder for young children who have not been talked to about these kind of relationships by their parents. It’s not up to Netflix to teach our kids. It’s up to parents. Do you think they were out of line to include this?
