Joining the woke circus, mom-of-twins Betty DeVille will be a lesbian in the new "Rugrats" cartoon premiering on Paramount's new streaming service:
Back when the original show launched in 1991, Betty's character was a staunch feminist and married to a weenie named Howard, who has presumably been erased from existence.
Every show in today's cultural wokescape needs to have at least one LGBT member in order to not be cancelled.
But may I remind you this is a show about talking babies meant for young kids.
Openly queer actor Natalie Morales, who uses both she/her and they/them pronouns will replace actor Kath Soucie, to be the voice behind the cartoon character.
Highlighting sexual fetishes is a prime priority for those seeking to indoctrinate your kids these days.
I can't wait for one of the talking one-year-olds to identify as transgender and demand the other infants use the correct pronouns!
"Betty is a fictional cartoon, but even cartoons were hugely influential for me as a kid and if I'd been watching Rugrats and seen Betty casually talking about her ex-girlfriend, I think at least a part of me would have felt like things might be okay in the future," said Morales.
The real question is how the show will evolve to continue appeasing the woke mob.
Maybe the older siblings will teach the white babies to admit their privilege to babies of color (BOC) and divest themselves of power by handing over their binkies as reparations!
One can only hope!
