American Girl Magazine Features Photo of Family with Two Dads

American Girl magazine has always had a subdued feminist undertone despite a conservative aesthetic, as have their extremely overpriced dolls. I’m not surprised at this nonsense.

American Girl magazine, which is beloved by many young girls, recently came under fire for including a picture of a family with two dads.

The Christian Examiner reports that One Million Moms (OMM), a group which is part of the American Family Association, is boycotting American Girl because of its decision to include the photo in their magazine.

“American Girl is attempting to desensitize our youth by featuring a family with two dads,” OMM asserts. “If your child has not seen this yet, then be careful she is not exposed and can avoid a premature conversation she is far too young to understand.”

The photo is part of an article called “Forever Family” in the Nov./Dec. issue of the magazine. It shows an 11-year-old girl who is pictured along with her three siblings and “Daddy” and “Dada.” The two gay men in the photo adopted the four children.
