So the whole thing from the outset was never just good clean wholesome entertainment; it was with the intention of shoving their agenda down peoples throats. Little wonder that people are suspicious even of mainstream orthodox magazines and media  of trying to push an agenda.
Well JQY and Eshel sponsored the episode so that probably had a lot to do with it.

"Marginalized voices" (as in "Including marginalized voices in the Orthodox Jewish community has always been
at the core of the show’s mission") is fairly ambiguous. Here's a "progressive" article on the show circa Season 1:

(Also, they are and always were clearly Modern Orthodox.)

Nothing Orthodox when featuring LGBT. But why bother with garbage??

Which is why a large segment of the modern Orthodox movement have a little to do with orthodox. Last I checked homosexuality is one of The Big Three, for which one is required to give up his life rather than succumb to. Why not celebrate Jews who have turned to Buddha while you’re at it? And if the point is not to celebrate them but rather to highlight their challenges, “to give a voice” to them, why not include a down syndrome child, a paraplegic, and a mentally ill person who thinks he is Napoleon Bonaparte on your show? They represent a far larger segment of the population then do homosexuals. Obviously this is agenda driven, and it ain’t a Torah agenda that is driving it...

As much as I'm sympathetic to people in extremely difficult circumstances that they did not choose, this statement is correct.

How do you justify marching in pride parades?

And the biggest pircha of all: bisexuals.

Can it infect a phone that is off?
Not if it's completely off (as in yes if the screen is off).
But why even bother? You never know what they find next..

Bigger pircha - asexuals! Actually, what are we trying to prove and how?

The website should have an extra e. It should be be apenews.com
