My complaint:

In watching a G rated shoe with my Children ( Dash Lily I discovered the incorrect rating that has been provided with this TV show for a G.
In one episode, there is a scene where Lily walked in on her brother naked in bed (under the sheets) with his boyfriend. Its actually quite clear what is going on here (inferences of Oral Sex) and has quite clear sexual references that are not and should not be found in a G classification TV show. (these kind of sexual references are continued throughout the series
In another episodes, one of the actors was wearing a sweater (which was briefly pointed out in the show) which clearly had the words Yippee-ki-yay, mother$%@ker. Again, not appropriate for a G classification and certainly when my young child watching asks about it!!. Additionally, the language of hell, asshole, bitch. again is clearly NOT suited as a G rated Tv show. Netflix you need to change this contents rating as G is for children and this is certainly nowhere near suited for children!!

Justified complaint?

Suggested solution:

I would like Netflix to formally apply to my family for the offence received in watching what we thought would be a good, clean family TV show for the whole family based upon its G classification! Instead I\'m left now to explain certain scene that my children saw to them after they had been exposed to this!!!
furthermore, I demand Netflix change this rating immediately in line with consumer code of practice guidelines (which this does not meet)
