This is a real headline about a cartoon made for preschoolers
· · Apr 19, 2021 ·

Oh you don't believe me.

It's OK, I wouldn't believe me either.

Here ya go:

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."

Yahoo News also picked up and ran the article because of course they did.

I swear we are in a simulation and the programmers are just seeing how far they can ratchet up the woke insanity and get away with it.

This show is for 3-year-olds! Are we really reaching the point where we have to shoehorn radical left intersectionality into freaking dog cartoons made for preschoolers??

And why stop at disabled, queer, poor, gender diverse, and dogs of color? (Btw, for the record, in that cover image I see different color dogs.) Don't you know that identity groups can be fractured indefinitely? What about the rest of them, you bigots?!?

How can any thinking human being read this article and think it's logical, or coherent, or in any way appropriate?

Or anything less than 100% guano crazy?
