The Family Guy cartoon stops scripting homosexual jokes, but keeps all the revolting ones with sexual abuse

Seems that the Family Guy, a cartoon series even wore than what the Simpsons turned out to be, is turning to its own form of censorship to appease the social justice advocating left, yet they're willing to keep featuring horrific jokes involving sexual assault, presumably because Donald Trump is their main target in the latest episode (H/T: Breitbart):
Sunday’s Family Guy found Peter Griffin facing off against a fellow “fat idiot who once had a hit television show and who over time has worn out his welcome.” The episode chronicled Peter’s new life as President Trump’s latest press secretary, a gig he eventually quit when he walked in on his new boss sexually assaulting Meg, Jabba the Hutt-style.
I don't think Jabba committed sexual assault in Star Wars - back then, most pop culture filmmakers usually had the smarts to realize a popcorn-chuffing audience seeking enjoyable escapism had their limits - so that's pretty bizarre they'd describe it that way. In any event, what the animators are doing is pure vomit, and it makes no difference whether the culprit is a conservative or a liberal politician; that's offensive and unfunny. Sexual abuse is not something entertaining and shouldn't be joked about for moral reasons. Yet they think jokes about homosexuality, on the other hand, are worse and that's what they appear to be jettisoning:
TVLINE | Peter also told Trump that Family Guy has been “trying to phase out” gay jokes. Are you really?

SULKIN | Kind of, yes. If you look at a show from 2005 or 2006 and put it side by side with a show from 2018 or 2019, they’re going to have a few differences. Some of the things we felt comfortable saying and joking about back then, we now understand is not acceptable.

APPEL | It’s almost unique to Family Guy, though I can think of one other show that’s been on the air longer. But if a show has literally been on the air for 20 years, the culture changes. And it’s not us reacting and thinking, “They won’t let us [say certain things].” No, we’ve changed too. The climate is different, the culture is different and our views are different. They’ve been shaped by the reality around us, so I think the show has to shift and evolve in a lot of different ways.
Well it's not like it's in good taste to mock people for abnormalities, mental or otherwise, but still, I get the feeling they're not doing this because they believe the same, but rather, because the LGBT advocates they seek to please want to elevate their ideology to a sainthood that should be respected above all else. All that aside, what's ever shifted and evolved about a show that seems to consider rape jokes funny, and even terrorism? There's never been anything of value in this show, and their decision to call it quits with jokes about homosexuality is awfully cheap compared to the more jarring monstrosities they stooped to.

Plenty of conservative couch potatoes thought the episode was sick, and if the network really allowed it to get that bad, it just shows how far morale's fallen. What's really dumbfounding is that these leftists are the kind of people who'd complain about manga and anime with sexual scenes that look disturbing, but when it comes to their own concoctions, they suddenly seem comfortable, especially when depicting right-wingers doing evil things. In which case, it's obvious they're only pretending to be offended, and have no issues with ruining entertainment for the sake of political agendas in the most tasteless way possible.

If they remove all the jokes, it'll turn into a pretty boring cartoon, and then it'll have to be cancelled and then they'll have to spend time looking for a new one to replace this one.
