Bitches Up In The Parents Television Council Object To ABC’s Use Of ‘Bitches’

Wednesday, March 9 by

This one was so predictable that it probably doesn’t even qualify as news. The Parents Television Council (PTC for people in a hurry) has taken issue with ABC regarding the pilot episode of “Good Christian Bitches.” Whether or not they actually watched the episode and found objectionable content, or they simply heard the title of show and said, “Uh-uh. No way. NO!” is anyone’s guess. Just kidding. It’s definitely the latter.

The PTC (what? I’m busy) released a Chicken Little-esque statement claiming:

“The ‘b-word’ is toxic and is used to degrade, abuse, harass, bully and humiliate women. And the ‘Christian’ element only adds insult to injury. Regardless of whether the title ultimately makes it to broadcast, ABC has publicly proclaimed its values and it has tarnished the Disney brand.”

The b-word is also offensive to people of all genders and faiths that often act like little bitches, which is perhaps why the PTC is making such a stink about this. Further, does the qualifier “good” in the title not count for anything? If anything, ABC is singing the praises of Christian bitches. The PTC has also taken aim at ABC earlier for a pilot titled “Don’t Trust the Bitch in Apartment 23,” which they only saw as a profane collection of words, rather than possibly life-saving advice.

The PTC then goes on and on and on to say:

“Would ABC even consider another faith to denigrate?  Would they even consider a program title or a plot line based on ‘Bitches’ who were Muslim, Hindu, Jewish or Buddhist?” asked Winter. “I suspect not, and I certainly hope not  So why the double standard?”

Congratulations, Parents Television Council. You just filled out ABC’s entire fall schedule. (THR)
