Meet the black, transgender Cinderella’s godmother you’ve all been waiting for (or so the woke media tells us)

CAP

Who’s really clamoring to see a black, transgender fairy godmother on cinema screens? Certainly the liberal media. But do audiences really care for woke remakes of childhood classics?

Is there any phrase more guaranteed to ruin a sweet childhood memory than “a modern re-imagining of…”? Especially when ‘modern’ means ‘sanitized’ and ‘injected with pointless social-justice twaddle.’

Enter the black, transgender fairy godmother. According to Hollywood Reporter, Emmy-award winning actor Billy Porter will play the role in Sony Pictures’ upcoming remake of the 1950 Disney classic, alongside Cuban-American actress Camila Cabello as the titular princess. Billy Porter, for the uninitiated, is a gay man.

So commonplace is the woke makeover these days that the news was greeted with nothing but syrupy enthusiasm from the media. “Billy Porter Should Absolutely Be Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother,” gushed Vanity Fair, to the deafening squeals of a hundred “Yass Kween”s in the comments section.

“If ‘Fairy Godmother Billy Porter’ doesn’t have an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor written all over it, we don’t know what does,” sassed gay magazine PinkNews. “It’s safe to say,” chirped women’s magazine site Refinery29, Cinderella “will be nothing short of fabulous.”

To be clear, this author has no attachment to the 1950s Cinderella story. Whether producer James Corden butchers the story or crafts an era-defining fairy tale from it is of no concern to yours truly. But audiences might disagree.

You see, while the ‘woke makeover’ – replacing women with men, injecting transgender roles where there were none, and sprinkling formerly white casts with other colors for diversity’s sake – delights magazine writers and cultural commenters, audiences are sick to the teeth of it.

Remember Ghostbusters? The 2016 remake of the beloved Bill Murray/Dan Aykroyd comedy flopped at the box office, losing Sony Pictures an estimated $70 million. Cinemagoers didn’t warm to the movie’s all-female cast and watered-down jokes, and review aggregation site RottenTomatoes was flooded with negative comments.

Ditto for ‘Ocean’s 8,’ the all-female remake of ‘Ocean’s 11,’ which itself was a remake of the 1960s Rat Pack movie. The movie’s cast preemptively deflected negative reviews, with Cate Blanchett claiming men would view it through a “prism of misunderstanding,” and Mindy Kaling declaring that white men simply “don’t understand it.” 

Though ‘Ocean’s 8’ fared well at the box office, audience reviewers on RottenTomatoes pelted the flick with a 45 percent rating, compared to the critics’ 69.

When the female-led Captain Marvel hit theaters earlier this year, RottenTomatoes simply changed their ratings system in preparation. Its audience score now reflects the number of people who rated the movie 3.5 stars or higher, which means in all likelihood, the 45 percent awarded to ‘Ocean’s 8’ is actually inflated.

Still, Hollywood hasn’t learned. How about a black, female 007 in the next James Bond flick? Or a female Thor? None of these tickle your fancy? Okay, well how about a live action remake of ‘The Little Mermaid,’ only with a black Ariel? Who says the movie industry is out of ideas!

As for the quality of the movies themselves, who cares! The recent live-action ‘Lion King’ remake was panned, even without any nods to social justice or diversity. Yet by the looks of things, studios won’t stop until every childhood classic has been updated to include a requisite number of disabled transgender multiracial characters more fitting with the times we live in.

Except by then, there’ll be nobody watching them.THE LITTLE

Students sign petition to ban ‘offensive’ white man in crosswalk signs

By Ethan Cai

  • GWU students recently voted to change the school’s “Colonials” mascot and told Campus Reform that President Barack Obama is the best president in history.

  • Campus Reform went undercover to George Washington University to ask students if they supported changing the “offensive” and “oppressive” white man in crosswalk lights, as well.

     

    With the rise of politically correct culture, students and universities have vehemently pushed for diversity and inclusivity movements, resulting in many things being labeling “offensive.”

    In the past, students have signed fake petitions to ban “offensive” holidays like Valentine’s Day and even Christmas to push diversity and inclusion.

    “I can see like, I guess, why some students have a problem with it… I’ll totally sign that.”

    Amid these ongoing diversity and inclusivity movements, Campus Reform went to George Washington University in Washington, D.C., where students previously voted to ban their “offensive” Colonials mascot. GW students also previously told Campus Reform that President Barack Obama is the best president in U.S. history.

    Campus Correspondent Ethan Cai asked George Washington students if they supported changing “offensive” crosswalk lights because the “walk” sign only portrays an image of a white man.

    How far will this movement of diversity and inclusion go? Where will the line be drawn for what is considered offensive?

    WATCH:

    “As we students cross the street, we are told by the symbol of a white man when it is okay to cross,” the fake petition stated. “Many students from diverse backgrounds, including individuals of color, gender fluid individuals, and LGBTQA+ individuals, feel oppressed by this.”

    [RELATED: VIDEO: Students at George Washington University say Obama is greatest president ever]

    By signing the petition, students “vehemently urge[d] the University to consider changing the crosswalk signs.”

    Many students signed Campus Reform’s fake petition. Even one university faculty member expressed support, as well.

    “There’s definitely a lack of representation,” one student said about the crosswalks. Another said that she thought the change would be “one step” to a more welcoming campus environment.

    “That’s so cute! Oh my god yeah,” a student said with excitement about the idea. “I can see like, I guess, why some students have a problem with it… I’ll totally sign that.”

    “Oh that’s so lit,” another student exclaimed.

Politician Advocating ‘Gender Neutral’ Toilets for Kids Now Arrested for Child Sex Crimes

Screen Shot 2019-07-18 at 2.22.28 PM

By Warner Todd Huston

A politician that puffed himself up as the “inclusive” representative for trying to push “gender neutral” bathrooms on children has now been arrested and charged with child sex crimes.

The arrest really does confirm the suspicion that many people inevitably have that these extremist, left-wingers pushing the gay and transgender agendas are at heart sex criminals.

The incident occurred in Middlesborough, UK, where politician David Smith launched a campaign to push the gay/transgender bathroom agenda right after he was elected in Teeside, Yorkshire. Smith was a member of the Conservative Party, according to the BBC.

Before you get confused, the “Conservative Party” in the UK is not really conservative. It is a sham party, really. In fact, Brexit Party leader, Nigel Farage, recently told Breitbart News that the “Conservative Party” in the UK can’t be trusted because “they’re not really conservative.”

In any case, Smith has been charged with nine counts of sexual touching of a child, the BBC reported. He is due to appear in court to face charges on August 7.

For his part, Smith denies all charges.

“I completely reject these spurious allegations and removing myself from the party will ensure I can focus all my efforts on fighting to clear my name,” Smith said in a statement.

Still, he resigned from the party but refused to resign from his elected position. After all, he makes £6,378 to serve, so he doesn’t want to lose the cash.

He added, that he had “worked hard to ensure I serve the people of Coulby Newham.”

Smith also defended his gay agenda saying, “This is who I am as a person and a community activist. The allegations made against my character are nothing more than damaging lies and moving forward, I will seek to prove this is the case in a court of law.”

But, let’s face it. Don’t you assume that men who are pushing “gender neutral” bathrooms are really just trying to create a situation where they can legally be in the bathroom with little girls?

‘Create a new category’: Fury after transgender runner claims US women’s college title

Screen Shot 2019-06-03 at 10.48.03 AM

US transgender runner Cece Telferm, who previously competed against men, has become embroiled in controversy after winning the women’s 400m hurdles title – with many fans accusing the athlete of having an unfair advantage.

Franklin Pierce University senior Telfer took the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) women’s 400m hurdles title in dominant fashion at the end of May, setting a new personal best of 57.53 and finishing more than a second ahead of rival runners.

However, the victory was met with mixed reaction on social media, with many users insisting that Telferm should not have been allowed to compete against women.

“Cheat. It’s a shame that cheats are also given awards and celebrated,” one user wrote.

Screen Shot 2019-06-03 at 10.51.19 AM

A number of fans fumed that the result of the race was highly predictable, as a mediocre male runner is stronger than even the best female athletes.

“This is getting beyond ridiculous. Natural born female sport is now in absolute crisis and if this is permitted to continue unchecked, XX chromosome World and Olympic records will shortly be consigned to history. XX female athletes cannot beat CeCe, it’s simply not a fair fight!” one person wrote.

Screen Shot 2019-06-03 at 10.53.56 AM

Some users suggested that there should be a new division introduced for transgender athletes to ensure fair competition in sport.

“There needs to be men’s, women’s and ‘others’ categories then. It has to be a level playing field or it’s just not fair,” one commentator suggested.

Screen Shot 2019-06-03 at 10.55.52 AM

“I am so thinking this is not fairness or sporting. Create a new category,” another user added.

Screen Shot 2019-06-03 at 10.57.05 AM

“Sports need another category—men , women, and transgender. The women are competing with a biological male, in this case. In other words, more muscle just by nature’s biology,” one more comment reads.

Teachers Crown Transgender Prom King at Massachusetts High School

By Peter D’Abrosca

A Massachusetts high school named a biological female prom king Friday.

Nicholas Bulman, the Barnstable High School student who came out as transgender last summer, was crowned prom king at the Class of 2019′s celebration Friday night at the Resort and Conference Center at Hyannis,” according to The Cape Cod Times. 

Students did not have the opportunity to vote, according to the report. Instead, teachers chose Bulman from a list of five prom king candidates, and chose the prom queen from a list of five girls. According to the report, the prom queen was a friend on Bulman’s. Both received the traditional crown and sash.

“It was … really awesome,” Bulman reportedly said. “All my friends hugged me and congratulated me.”

One of the teachers, Lyn Vasquez, described the pick as a “no-brainer.”

“He’s just an all-around great person,” she reportedly said. “Teachers at Barnstable High School felt Nick was a great candidate.”

Once again, the transgender agenda pervades the public school system. A few months ago, the president of America’s largest teachers union promoted transgenderism to kindergartners.

Big League Politics reported:

The president of the largest teacher’s union in the country, the National Education Association, read two books promoting transgenderism to a class of kindergartners in Virginia last week.

Lily Eskelen Garcia read from the books I am Jazz and Julian is a Mermaid to the class of young children at Ashlawn Elementary School in Arlington, Virginia. She was joined by trans activist Sarah McBride, who spoke at the Democratic National Convention in 2016 in support of transgender ideology.

I am Jazz is a “children’s book” about a “trans child.” Garcia read in detail about the notion of transgenderism to the audience of children, presenting the concept to impressionable children who don’t know any better. The National Education Association tweeted about the event:

‘Arthur’ character comes out, FINALLY giving LGBT cartoon rat population representation on kid’s TV

CAP

A publicly-funded educational show for children 4-8 about an anthropomorphic aardvark took a turn for the even weirder, when it decided to teach kids the importance of accepting adult male-male inter-species love relationships.

Come on, if there was one thing kids’ TV programming was desperately crying out for, it was a gay cartoon rat getting married, teaching us all a timely lesson about “diversity.”

So, that’s exactly what the season premiere of the Public Broadcasting Service’s (PBS) “Arthur” cartoon delivered. The episode featured a surprise wedding between the titular aardvark’s humanoid rat teacher and his male partner who appears to also be an aardvark…as CNN put it, “leaving us all in happy tears.”

CAP

While many people seemed unsurprised that Mr. Ratburn, a ‘man’ whose principal interests include eating cake and bird-watching, turned out to be a homosexual, there were, nonetheless, heavy celebrations across social media post-nuptials.

Indeed, social justice warriors everywhere were hardly able to contain their glee over the inter-species, same-sex pairing up. If nothing else, the episode confirmed that even kids just barely out of toddlerhood can no longer avoid being pummelled with lessons about identity politics.

Arthur has been on the air for a whopping 22 SEASONS, making it the longest running children’s cartoon on television. So, perhaps we can chalk its success up to being so very in tune with the zeitgeist — and its willingness to take on responsibilities that might otherwise be left to parents. Like lessons about gay marriage, for example.

CAP

Should decisions of when and how to teach children about adult relationships really be made by television producers trying to impart their personal values onto everyone else’s kids? Regardless of whether the relationship is heterosexual or same-sex, marriage is hardly a topic many people would expect to be cropping up in a cartoon for four-year-olds.

What’s next? Are busy parents going to have to start vetting the shows their toddlers are watching and pick ‘liberal’ or ‘conservative’ ones depending on their own political persuasions? Can a parent not sit their child in front of a television show without wondering what wisdom and life lessons the friendly animated characters are going to be imparting next?

Of course, there’s no grave danger in a child learning about marriage and the basics of sexuality (some people are gay, some are straight, etc.), but are these topics really age-appropriate for the under-fives?

It’s not the first time that PBS has dealt with same-sex relationships in a supposedly child-friendly manner, either. The publicly-funded network ran an episode in 2005 which ambitiously featured two lesbian couples. Although, it appears on that occasion, “Arthur” was a bit ahead of its time and it was forced to pull the episode following parental complaints.

In a statement to People magazine, the network commented on the importance of accurately representing “the diversity of communities across the nation,” as well as the “wide array of adults in the lives of children who look to PBS KIDS every day.”

Social media reaction varied from extreme excitement that wedding bells were finally ringing for Mr. Ratburn to concern that PBS had taken their efforts to promote diversity and educate young kids a tad too far. Some were even downright angry that the channel had decided to “burden” children with thoughts of sexuality and adult relationships, homosexual or otherwise.

Transgender powerlifter stripped of world records after drug tester rules she is ‘actually male’

CAP

US transgender powerlifter Mary Gregory was stripped of records she set last month at a national competition after a doping test revealed that the athlete “was actually a male in the process of becoming a transgender female.”

Gregory broke four women’s world records during the competition in the squat, bench press and deadlift disciplines as well as total record in her weight class.

Following the event, Gregory thanked the US Powerlifting Federation for allowing her to take part in the competition as a female lifter.

CAP

However, the federation didn’t share enthusiasm over Gregory’s record-breaking performance after the obligatory doping control proved that the athlete should have performed in men’s category.

“The lifter exceeded the current female world records in this lifter’s age and weight category. This automatically calls for drug testing protocol which takes place at the end of every event. The drug testing coordinator for this event performed the drug test at which time it was revealed that this female lifter was actually a male in the process of becoming a transgender female,” the federation said in a statement.

“Our rules, and the basis of separating genders for competition, are based on physiological classification rather than identification. On the basis of all information presented to the Board of Directors for this particular case, the conclusion made, is that the correct physiological classification is male.”

The US powerlifting governing body annulled Gregory’s records admitting that the athlete should not have competed against women.

“Since the lifter’s gender classification for the purpose of our rules is not consistent with female, no female records will be broken by these lifts,” the statement reads.
