'Rape culture' Pepe Le Pew, the latest cancel culture scalp
Is it just because the cartoon is aimed at kids, or will movies in general that depict rapes, or books for that matter, be suppressed as well?
I think the cartoons back then were aimed at kids and adults I did read where the cartoonists themselves put things in there for themselves so anything in their cartoons is not by accident. Any kid on Disney plus that has these cartoons in their pic selection list are having them removed by Disney. All I will say about Disney doing all this is Go Woke Go Broke.
Unilever and the Woke Brigade removes the word Normal from its products.
Unilever drops word 'normal' from beauty products in inclusivity push
Well, in a way it makes since, because none of the woke people or SJW's that I have seen were anything
close to normal.
There is no such thing as normal, whether you think you are "woke" or not.
Would that be abnormal behavior?

This is a very dangerous ethic to promote for a species as order and normality are the fulcrum to our progression.
This want to cancel or remove aspects of our shared condition is akin to pissing in the wind as these traits that haunt us reside in our very fibre. It is unrealistic to deny a normal as through out our evolutionary path it has been the one constant on which all else is judged.
I too would love a world where none of these behaviours were present but I believe without these failings or flaws we would not be in the position where we find ourselves today. I liken it to a healing wound as kchoo on here first stated, different context but the same happening.
Chipping away at a binding to break free from what ? Our biases I'm guessing and again this is unrealistic to think preferences can be switched on for only certain sectors and off for the ones that ail us.

I rest my case. There is no such thing as normal. You prove it by taking a simple sentence and inflating it to your issues. The cancel culture is about control, mind control, control with subtle fear of always being on the edge of being wrong somehow, which we are already programmed to fear, being wrong, not fitting in, which leads to all kinds of bizzare mental aberrations and inconsistent behavior. Once we all accept that the word "normal" used in relation to human behavior and thought is a control word meant to keep us in someone else's box, then we can relax and be real. Banning books and words is an indication of a sick society.
So the fear of not being normal has so much importance that we refuse to recognise it as real is what I'm getting but it doesn't make it go away. Unless and I think there is an element of this, that if everyone believes that normal doesn't exist then it actually doesn't, Internet symptoms of false hope and dreams beyond reality. If you build it they will come springs to mind.
Our understanding of cancel culture differs and their in lays the truth. From what I see there is a movement born of the world wide connection that has inflated a sense of injustice and wants to silence those who don't agree with topics many don't want to consider as important and it's a runaway train if you follow current affairs.
I don't think we are ready for what you are suggesting but that isn't to say it isn't where we are heading but for that to happen something very real has to give. Banning books and words is a sign of a sickness coming from those who want the banning done..lol.. No one else to look at for that one.
I bet your parents had a better sense of normal and those before them the same and so on until the animal kingdom is entered where it actually costs you your life.
I'm not normal and neither do I wish to be so but I know it when I see it.
Seems like Dr Tolian Soren has been talking to Unilever.
I agree with you assessment of the "runnaway train" but I think some of it is contrived. When you look at who is actually saying things and how much attention they are getting for it, you can see that either they are famous people or unknown people that the media has decided to give a lot of attention to. And it is an attempt at creating a new "normal".
Yes we all want to feel like we belong, but most of us don't feel that way because we see the contriving and controlling aspects, it chafes and we either retreat or we lash out. There is a lot of lashing out going on right now. And it is being misrepresented to the masses in a lot of ways.
The Dr. Suess thing might even be some kind of distraction as the 6 books that the publisher has decided to not print are the 6 least popular of his books. I had only heard of one of those books but never saw it and I suspect they haven't been published in a long time. So the story is being used to get everyone paying attention and emotional about that, a non-issue. The school isn't banning Dr. Suess, just trying to make the read a thon day not about Dr. Suess. Some of the things in the below article make sense, however, history needs to be considered, when these books were written, just like Tom Sawyer. And everyone should be reading any books they buy for their children before they buy them.

Was just doing a little reading that touched on the French Revolution. Mob politics are all the rage anymore. We ought to be a bit more careful with that stuff. Like when your Mom told you not to run with the scissors. Good advice Mom.
I was wondering how it might change if they had all the gadgets then that we do now. Louie would've kept his head because everyone would be too busy at home bitching to one another about trivia to roam the streets. No need for a 'whiff of grape' but hand sanitizer stations would be convenient.
For those motivated enough to actually go do something other than bitch online or sack the village market the storming of the Bastille would be led by the great-great-great-granddad of idiot with the Fred-Flintstone-Lodge-Buffalo hat.

Oooh? Incorrect? Sorry.
Trading card company Topps apologizes and removes BTS card showing violent' and 'racist' imagery after backlash
By all means, get those Garbage Pail Kids out of here and make rom for this - because it's much more wholesome than garbage and hideously violent games never gives anyone bad ideas like mass shootings or anything.
