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.

Why just why

Was very excited about this show. Looked forward to the more modern issues addressed and the representation. End of pilot and the mom casually mentions [email protected]* it was super jarring. If you have already had this convo with your child, this may not be an issue for you. While we have had "the talk" years ago my sweet innocent 11 year does not have this in her lexicon. Wont be taking a risk on future episodes.
