Sex and the City is one of the most beloved television shows of all time. The HBO series is so popular, it recently got a new reboot. “And Just Like That…” debuted last Thursday. Everybody’s talking about what might happen next. It also stirred up a bit of controversy.
Many fans have criticized the show for using teenage characters depicted in sexual relationships. The 17-year-old son of Cynthia Nixon’s Miranda character and his relationship with his high school love is drawing the ire of parents, according to the New York Post.
The fictional relationship has stirred up controversy because it shows teenagers dealing with very mature themes. That includes the teens cracking jokes about their sex life. One mother, Elizabeth Trinca, said she was shocked by the scene.
“I couldn’t believe that Miranda was just allowing it to happen while she was home and picking up his used protection. You need to have respect as a teen for your parents.”
Other moms see value in the way Miranda handles the situation. They say kids are going to find a way to do that kind of thing anyway. It may as well be in proximity to the parent, who can offer guidance and advice.
Sex and the City has always been written with a bit of an edge. It’s no surprise that the new reboot is causing controversy already. Some mothers believe the show has finally crossed the bounds of good taste.
