But thankfully, the world of children’s TV never fails to drag us out of our Brexit/Trump/rest-of-the-world-related misery.
Remember the very lovable teacher Mr Ratburn from Arthur? Well, this rat just tied the knot in an animal wedding with another male rat.
In the landmark episode, entitled 'Mr Ratburn and the Special Someone', Arthur and his friends plan to ruin Mr Ratburn’s wedding to a woman they see him with, fearing the couple are a bad match
Though the group soon figures out that the woman is actually Mr Ratburn’s sister, and his fiance is a man who makes Mr. Ratburn very happy. So not only does this show make for an inclusive addition, it also tackles the group’s assumption that their teacher was heterosexual and marrying a woman.
