The Disney Channel introduced its first-ever lesbian couple on the show “Good Luck Charlie” this week.

In the episode, parents Amy and Bob Duncan learn that their daughter Charlie’s friend has two moms when they arrange a play date for the kids.

A spokesperson for the network said the episode was “developed to be relevant to kids and families around the world and to reflect themes of diversity and inclusiveness.”

Concervative group One Million Moms, which tried to get Ellen DeGeneres fired as JC Penney’s spokeswoman, urged parents to boycott the show because of the gay storyline.

The organization posted on its website, “Just because something may be legal or because some are choosing a lifestyle doesn’t make it morally correct. Disney should stick to entertaining instead of pushing an agenda. Disney decided to be politically correct versus providing family-friendly programming.”

“Families tuning in to watch a children’s network may encounter a premature discussion on sexual orientation that is completely uncalled for,” added the group.
