‘Idiot: Nancy Drew Will Be “Diverse”‘ (2016)

See the source image

When something ain’t broken, don’t fix it!

The good news is that this wretched little scheme fell through before it could be imposed on us. The bad news, of course, is that it was ever thought of in the first place.


I looked it up. You wanna know why the “new Nancy Drew” never made it to the airwaves. According to TV bigwigs, it was because Nancy Drew was… “too female”!

Give me strength.

How badly did we need another TV s**tcom about hard-bitten New York cops?

And what in the world did that mental Lilliputian mean by promising that Nancy Drew herself would be “diverse”? Clearly he does not know what the word means.

There’s a lot of that going around.

    It’s ironic, but the diversity crowd, at their very core, don’t really want diversity. Nancy Drew should be perfect for their claimed goals, a teenaged girl doing the work of a hardened detective. But these day, you have to burn a pinch of incense to all of the false gods, lest some forgotten god smites the hell out of you. Nancy Drew would be even better if she was from the South Pole, blind, had three legs and self-identified as a Tasmanian Devil. That’s the ticket! 🙂

    Seriously; the false gods of the past have been replaced by the gods of political correctness.

    Wow, they are even messing around with Nancy Drew? That was one of my favorite book series when I was a kid, and I hate to see that attacked.
    It was just a harmless, fun little book series for young girls. We can’t have anything left if they get their way.

      Yes, those were (and are) good books–for boys as well as girls. Nancy Drew was a swell character. And no pandering!
      But they just have to tamper with it.

    I loved these books growing up. Some things should just be left alone. 🙁
