Protest Now! TLC Sends "Dear Jon" Letter, Discriminating Against Playful Dads Everywhere

Well, it's finally happened. Jon Gosselin has been fired from "Jon and Kate Plus 8" by the TLC Network. People magazine reports:

“Given Jon’s recent antics, there was no way the show could continue to portray him as a doting Dad, not while all this other crap was going on,” a source close to Jon Gosselin tells PEOPLE.

“Jon will still be seen on the show from time to time,” the source adds.
TIME opines that "having Jon show up with another 'new mommy' every week would be too gross even for TLC."

My question: are Jon's antics really worse than those depicted in prime time on Two and a Half Men?

Or Desperate Housewives? Or How I Met Your Mother?

For shame, TLC. The Men's Liberation Movement will be protesting your show. In fact, my guess is that there will be an American Male boycott of "Kate Plus 8" -- assuming any men ever watched this show in the first place.
