The ever tasteful Fox TV broadcast their premiere of Trading Spouses last night. In the show, two families exchange mothers for a short period and each family must now adjust to the new mum. In this particular episode, from what I saw of it, a rich white woman changes places with a working class African-American woman. Fine, whatever.
So let me get this straight: in most parts of the U.S.A., two people of the same gender can’t get married but if you’re in a heterosexual relationship, you can trade your wife for another in hopes of winning a cash prize? Nice to see Fox is doing its part to uphold traditional family values.
