Newton who?

Apparently some prep schools are renaming basic laws of physics to eliminate references to white men who discovered them.

C&Rsenal did a recent Q&A video.  At about the 3:02 mark, a question comes up about them including their pronouns when they do introductions.  It is just funny to listen to.  You can tell they don't deal with that stuff much.   =)
Also, this is part 2 of the Q&A so this is 6 hours or more into Q&A questions.

I cheated.  I saw reference to it elsewhere and had to go find that part of the video.  I just love her initial response.  "....for the guns?...."

I make it through Drachinifel's Q&A videos so I figure I can handle theirs.

Drach puts an hour + long Q&A out every week sometimes twice a/week if you count the live ones. Some are over 3 to 5 hours long

So much for Monopoly:

It's frustrating enough when companies cave to the SJW whiners, but even moreso when the companies cave all on their own.

Back in  the early 2000s I bought my daughter the Game of Life. Upon opening it I started read the board and noticed compare to The Game Life we had when I was a kid there were no hard decisions or bad consequences to anything in the game. It was all peaches and cream for every player  with no real winners or losers no matter how you played. Was temped to ordered an older one off ebay but the prices were nuts because apparently a lot of people had the same idea I had.

And now a woke theater director has decided Cinderella is too white so the whole thing was scrapped while we sort out our feelings and re-examine our diversity in hiring.

Does this mean Song of the South will be making a resurgence?  ;)

Shocker that a story that takes place in Europe is all white
The Lion King stage play is 100% black so are they going to cancel it for being too black? Mulan for being too Asian? Of course not.

Now SpongeBob

Quote
In the episode, a health inspector comes to the Krusty Krab and finds a case of the "Clam Flu" in the restaurant. Upon this discovery, the health inspector quarantines the patrons, and the characters grow anxious. Those who are assumed to have the virus are shunned and tossed in a freezer.

The removal of the "Kwarantined Crab" comes during a time of increased anti-Asian violence in the United States. The episode's storyline reflects feelings of increased isolation and hatred that many Asian communities have experienced since the COVID-19 pandemic began.
Quote
Another episode called "Mid-Life Crustacean" has been out of rotation since 2018. In it, SpongeBob, Patrick and Mr. Krabs break into a woman's house and steal her underwear.

Two SpongeBob episodes get pulled by streaming services

Oh, for crying out loud - just be sure to name the basic laws of physics (or any other science) discovered by POC's after the POCs who discovered them.

According to my employer's mandatory "anti-racism" training, saying "All Lives Matter" is a micro-aggression.

How about saying "No Lives Matter"?

Don't use the term mistress for a woman who is in a long-term sexual relationship with, and is financially supported by, a man who is married to someone else. Instead, use an alternative like companion, friend or lover on first reference and provide additional details later.
