This is a thing people are pissed off about, apparently.

For those wondering, I check out One Angry Gamer and The Quartering occasionally just for news stories.

Well yeah, no one likes when things they like get co-opted by SJWs. I hope the She-Ra win this so the series is dead and over quick.

>he thinks any criticism of forced diversity and pandering is "alt-right"
This response pretty much sums it up.

>>5935
I deleted that post because I wanted to post this image and did not want to doublepost. I didn't expect someone to get buttmad and reply that fast.

But yes, grown men who cry about a children's show reboot making a character fatter than the original version and think it's part of some big SJW conspiracy could definitely fall into the alt-right category. Or at the very least, the insane retard category.
I just find it sad that so many people are losing their shit over a cartoon, something that's aimed towards children for god's sakes, now that's not to say you can't enjoy cartoons as an adult but the level some of these people go to regardless of what side their on is fucking embarrassing to say the least.
>>5937
>>5940
Here's the thing, this isn't just people wanting a character to wank it to, it's mostly people that are just flat out sick of this PC bullshit that has been forced down their throats and ruining their entertainment for years. Them fattening Spinnerella is just another pile shoveled upon the shit mountain that is the She-Ra reboot.
>>5931
>I hope the She-Ra win this so the series is dead and over quick

Because that worked so well with The Connors.
>>5941
No, I'm sorry but grown adults complaining about a reboot to a dead 80's property that was only meant to sell toys to little girls is pretty damn stupid no matter how you slice it, look I can't stand the new TMNT cartoon but I'm not spending hours to no end on the internet bitching about it, I have a life and some of these people could really use one as well.
>>5941
>sick of this PC bullshit that has been forced down their throats

Nobody is making you watch it. Nothing is being "forced down your throat" besides your own foot. You're trying to be some kind of crusader against some imaginary liberal agenda because you have nothing going on in your life and you're an angry little weirdo.

And it's pretty hilarious that you're ranting and raving about this and at the same time you're jerking off to pictures of fat girls.
>>5944
It's not hilarious, it's more like 'unutterably sad and creepy'. These are literally guys protesting because a cartoon for little girls is not sexy enough. That, to them, is 'PC shoved down your throat'.

Once, I shot a rabbit really badly. In the couple of seconds before I shot it again properly in the head, this rabbit was trying to crawl into a hedge with literally the middle part of its body blown away. It was horrible (but brief). To me, that's how these internet creeps complaining that cartoons aren't sexy enough come across -- a horrible, dysfunctional parody of life and motion, an uncomprehending attempt to mimic normal behavior when their ability to actually be normal is long gone.
>>5941
This. If I was (eventually will be) a parent I would be pretty pissed that yet another show is trying to shove PC bullshit down my kids throat.

>>5943
>>5946
And what about parents that don't want PC soy shit forced at their kid?

They should have had an abortion because their thoughts and feelings and beliefs are based on 4chan memes and they are far too retarded and immature to be raising a child.
>>5929
You're the parent, you control what your kids watch and if you can't do that nor can you explain why to your child why he or she can't watch this show then simply put, you shouldn't be a parent!
>>5949

I watched the show just to see what the big shit was about and its just a fucking cartoon wtf are you sperging about.

It has the same moral lessons that pretty much ALL other cartoons have. Taking advantage of others and killing innocent people? bad. Helping people and sticking by your friends? good. Oh no, the same basic shit literally every cartoon shills. Your poor theoretical kid.

Cartoons nowadays don't have strictly barbie and ken looks bc their main purpose isn't to sell action figures and barbies; it's to get views. They don't have to worry about getting merchandise made as fast as possible so of course shit doesn't look like it used to? Which only looked that way because it was as easy as possible to toy design/reuse molds.

What is PC Bullshit about having just fun designs and colors? No where in the show do they stop the plot to talk about the joys and superiority of being fat or black or gay. It doesn't ever come up.

But no you're right the moment your future kid locks eyes on 2018 She-Ra they're gonna start guzzling Silk soy milk through an anal enema and be the future downfall of Amewica uwu
>>5950
In other words, you have no arguments and you're just going experience cognitive dissonance rather than give me a reason. Gotcha. Rest well on my filter list.

>>5952
Look, I'm sure the show will probably have good moral lessons, but when you start changing characters for the sake of appeasing PC fags, where does it stop? Oh we have to make Bert and Ernie gay because it's 2018. Oh we have to make everything gender inclusive because it's 2018. Enough of this shit.

But the issue is fat, which really can be in kids media, so long as it's not trying to force a stupid PC message.

There is nothing wrong with a fat character, but changing a show's character because it's the current year is anon. I'm okay with a fat original character in anything, so long as they don't make it the whole "I'm a woman/fat, therefore always right and perfect". It's annoying in real life, and it'd be super annoying in fiction.
>>5952

The funniest thing about this is that absolutely nobody cares about this dumb cartoon besides some angry adult men. A ten year old girl in 2018 doesn't give a fuck about some cartoon that was on TV 20 years before she was born.

It would be interesting to see one of these guys actually try to explain their feelings about this show to the 10 year old girl whom it was made for. She would just be looking at him with a face of pure confusion and wondering why a grownup would be this stupid and insane.
>>5946
>literally the middle part of its body blown away.

Completely unrelated to this thread, but god damn what did you shoot it with, a .50 cal? Get some number 6 shot, you're wasting all that good meat.
>>5953

But who says the characters were changed to appease anyone? You're working on a false/unconfirmed assumption and that's why what you're saying doesn't hold up outside of 'I don't want these opinions and changes to happen because I don't like them and that's it'. Where are the interviews saying they changed the characters to appease ANYONE?

The industry has opened up to allow a LOT more people to be in charge of these projects and its just natural that they're going to make designs that they like and probably reflect them; it's just a fucking fact that there are more people of color and women in animation now, and in all places of power than in the 80s, and I refuse to believe anyone is so attached to the shitty cartoon original of She-Ra that their designs changing from barbie brunette to blonde is so heart breaking for ANYONE. Its not the creators or the show that say a character is perfect based on their design (most of the time); its FANS.

And even Sherlock BBC, one of the most boring shows to grace anyone is considered PC just off the fucking fan base, when it never has been.

People will literally always put characters that they relate to on a pedestal. Yeah, it can be super fucking annoying, but that's life. It's not ruining lives or making people think "wow maybe fat women ARE better than me just for existing". People who believe they're better just for existing are just narcissists and they're everywhere.

There's nothing wrong with designs changing, anon. Even though I hate the newest TMNT incarnation and its designs, I can't bring myself to say it's WRONG, just because I don't want it.

The character this whole post is about gets like 5 seconds of air time and when I saw this post, I had to seriously think who tf she was. She's just some random background character. And she shills zero PC Master Race messages.

Also Sesame Street has staunchly refused to say Bert and Ernie are gay; officially they are not. The writer who came up with them says that was his intent from the beginning, because he modeled them from himself and his partner. From the 10000 jokes and innuendos about it said since before I was born, I think his intent has always been picked up by people. They didn't suddenly become gay because the PC crowd demanded it in 2018. It was always the intent but the writer didn't become as public with it until more recently.

Things are just more easily sensationalized, put on a pedestal, and shilled nowadays, so yeah people will try to pull a JK Rowling and try to get those pathetic DUMBLEDORE WAS GAY ALL ALONG points, but not every gay lad in media is a case of that.
>>5956

12 gauge. Should have been a 22 obviously. You can't eat rabbits in those parts -- they tend to have diseases.
It's a weird thought but... maybe they didn't design these characters to 'appears PC fags'. Maybe they designed them to appeal to little girls by being relatable and pleasant.
>>5958

What number shot were you using? 6 or higher shouldn't rip it up too bad. .22LR is a fun challenge but these days I'm lazy and I just want to get easy kills and bring home some food. As for the diseases, if you clean it and cook it really good you'll be alright. I've eaten grosser things than rabbit and I never got sick. I know this is going way off track, but this thread is so retarded that it deserves to be derailed.

I use a .410 with #4 myself. not as damaging as the larger gauges, improved odds of bagging something over a 22.
>>5965

This was years and years ago when I'm a teenager and I can't remember, but I reckon it must have been UK No2 -- so about US No3 I think. I'm not sure now, but anything's better than hearing grown-up men crying because a cartoon character for kids isn't sexy enough, so...

Rabbit is good but there are nasty diseases in the population in those parts; it's probably safe to eat them but you really wouldn't want to. What we did use to eat a lot of was pheasants, all full of tiny lead birdshot.
>>5972

I think that's the right choice. happy hunting!
