Homosexuality, just like heterosexuality, is not inherently sexual nor inappropriate

Anyone who disagrees is highlighting their fetishization and ignorance of the LGBTQ+ community. Raising awareness of homosexual couples who act similarly to heterosexuals—kissing, hugging, having a family, and all other age-appropriate behaviors kids of heterosexual parents are raised to see—should not be deemed explicit, lest they reveal their own homophobic and bigoted views.
