LACK OF ‘INCLUSION’ IN CARTOON ABOUT DOGS STIRS CANCEL CULTURE AND CRITICISM…
A children’s cartoon tailored to preschoolers was SLAMMED the other day for not having characters that were ‘disabled, queer, gender diverse, or dogs of color.’
Keep in mind, the cartoon characters are DOGS. The dogs from what I can see, are predominately ORANGE and BLUE.
Read the FULL critique reported by Pink News below (it will STUN you)…
Australian children’s show Bluey has been criticised for not having “disabled, queer, poor, gender diverse, dogs of colour and single-parent dog families”.
The animated show for preschool children follows Bluey, an anthropomorphic six-year-old Blue Heeler puppy, and her family as they go about life in Brisbane and learn important life lessons.
In an opinion piece on the ABC Everyday website, journalist Beverley Wang shared her love of the hit cartoon but also questioned why the show isn’t “more representative”. Wang asked why the show – which is set in the capital of Queensland – does not reflect the wide diversity of the Australian city.
“Where are the disabled, queer, poor, gender diverse, dogs of colour and single-parent dog families in Bluey‘s Brisbane?” She said. “If they’re in the background, let them come forward.”
What colors are being left out? Green? Purple? The rest of ROYGBIV?
Ask any preschooler, they probably can’t even tell you EVERY single color in the rainbow, much less think about the RACISM involved with color.
I for sure had zero interest when I was a preschooler in how diverse my cartoons were. Does any preschooler look at dogs and say “that one doesn’t represent me?” NO.
In fact, color and gender identity were not even thoughts that had FORMED in my brain yet.
The show is about DOGS, so unless preschoolers identify as dogs (which I sure hope not…) then this SHOULD NOT matter!
These people FEED on the divide and have absolutely nothing better to do than to slam others for not being as “woke” as they are.
Draw the line people, because if we don’t, these nut cases will KEEP PUSHING as far as we let them get.
This has got to stop. Acceptance is not what they want.
They want total FORCED diversity in every aspect in your life, even in the places that it makes absolutely ZERO sense.
It’s time we start letting kids just be kids. In stead of SHOVING politics and societal issues down their throats can we not just let them LIVE.
This world is bad enough, adults have to live with that reality DAILY. So instead of telling kids their shows aren’t diverse let’s just let them grow up before they have to deal with any of that mess…
Do you think there needs to be more diversity in the cartoon? Let me know in the comment section below!
