I don’t know how you go about firing a cartoon character, but that’s what the United Nations has done–after first appointing Wonder Woman, who does not exist, a special ambassador for women’s rights. And now she’s sacked ( http://www.breitbart.com/news/wonder-woman-dumped-as-a-special-un-ambassador-after-uproar/ ).
It seems lots and lots of people complained about her appointment. Oh, it didn’t bother them that she’s only a cartoon. They didn’t mind it made the UN look sillier than usual.
No–the loudest critics of Special Ambassador Woman Woman objected that “a white, skimpily dressed American woman prone to violence wasn’t the best role model for girls.”
Oh, no, Wonder Woman’s white! And she’s not wearing a burqa! And she beats up bad guys, too! Three strikes, she’s out!
Actually, there are real persons who have been fired for being white, or just not hired, for that very reason. But gee whiz, you’d think a cartoon character could get away with it!
Oh, wait, I know! Wonder Woman’s not inclusive. Any role model for girls must be inclusive of those women who don’t have female body parts. You know–the ones that used to be called “men.”
These are the people who are running our culture, running our world… right into the ground.
