____________________________________

ABC has started a series based on the book Good Christian Bitches by Kim Gaitlin. In this book, a mockery is made of women, specifically those of the Christian faith, who are depicted as shallow at best.

Although ABC has changed the name of the show from "Good Christian Bitches" to GCB, the idea of ridiculing Christian women is the same. ABC is taking aim at the Christian faith in a way that other faiths (Islam, Judiasm, etc. ) would never be targeted. Women are unfairly portrayed with the derogatory and inflammatory stereotype of "Bitch.” This word is indicative of the ways in which women are often objectified and made to be non-human, referred to by a term meaning “female dog.”
Not standing up against this mockery of a group representing religious diversity and a historically disempowered population, sets a dangerous precedent whereby we allow media organizations to influence our culture with ideas of what is and is not acceptable.

ABC needs to be told by all women, all those in the Christian faith, and all who support either women or religious freedoms that this is not acceptable. In addition to the blatantly harmful and false characterization of Christian women, the bullying that is portrayed in this show as acceptable is a step backward in creating an anti-bullying society.

Spread the word. Send a tweet, share on Facebook, or send emails to others who are disturbed by this show.

      The title alone is offensive not just to Christians but all religions. Very unkind and rude.

      This show is disrespectful to women & Christians. This IS NOT how Christian women behave towaeach other. Throw this in the trash where it came from.
