But maybe it's not enforced strongly enough - some kids are pretty dumb, Anon.>>121522477
Funny thing is, of course, is that Certain conservatives want lots of shit banned as well.... I just want to watch cartoons... we're old enough to know it's not right...
All this could be solved if they said the cartoons were PG. I mean, you'd think they would be. The original 40s shorts were a bit risque and not very child friendly. They were simpsons level family viewing.
Make them all PG with the usual 'contains inappropriate behaviour/gun violence/sexual harassment' warning so the kids are aware and they pick it up.
This will make them look for it in the shorts, think 'Ah, Pepe's kissing the cat, and she clearly doesn't like it, so that's what they mean!' and they LEARN A BIT.
This also triggers far right idiots who scream censorship at every opportunity, and because they haven't got normal people to hide among (normal people know that isn't censorship), they look stupid, forcing some nuance into future discussions.
What's really funny is even some liberals will call a PG warning notice 'censorship', such as Pen and Teller. So it shows me:
1. A love of free speech is truly apolitical in America when it wants.
2. But WB is a typical moneygrubbing corp that wants to get as wide an audience as possible
3. So they ban him instead of making the shorts PG or putting effort in and just rewrite him to NOT DO THE BAD THING.
This whole thing is very stupid - possibly more than you would reasonably expect from WB. Always consider the possibility that they never intended to ban him, and that the entire controversy is manufactured in order to get more publicity for the character, and they'll have have him 'come back' with a new series of shorts or something.
Or they did intend to remove him, and made it a big announcement for wokepoints, but may change their mind later.
They were probably prepared for this. These things are always a big PR stunt on some level.
