Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Great but..,

Common Sense missed details on the sexual category. There is a passionate kiss with visible tounge lasting solid 8 seconds and the woman (in ref to something else) says "It's not sex". This made my 10 year old extremely uncomfortable and I was unprepared. Other details are in other User Reviews.
