Hate Speech from Talking Animals

Below are quotes from an article from earlier this year, in which "academics" Nora Timmerman and Julia Ostertag had this to say about children's media:

“[M]uch of young children’s media reproduces and confirms racist, colonial, consumerist, heteronormative, and patriarchal norms,” Timmerman and Ostertag write in their paper ‘Too Many Monkeys Jumping in Their Heads: Animal Lessons within Young Children’s Media,’ [...] animals are anthropomorphized to reinforce “socially dominant norms” like nuclear families and gender stereotypes.

This would include children's characters such as The Bernstein Bears, Arthur the Aardvark, and Franklin the Turtle. In so much as these characters model the nuclear family of the 20th century, I would say these two lesbian, Multicult ninnies are correct. The nuclear family is patriarchal, heteronormative, consumerist, and Western (therefore White [read racist, and colonial since America was built by colonialism]). But aren't almost all depictions of family on television, film, or book in keeping with these "norms"? Even when being raised by two dykes or two fags, children are still encouraged to address their parents as moms and dads. So just exactly what kind of messages are we supposed to be conveying in children's media?

Ms. Timmerman wishes these authors would acknowledge that “animals themselves may have lessons to teach us.” For example, bees buzzing around a hive or ants in an ant farm can teach the importance of community and teamwork without having to be anthropomorphized, she said.

Ha! How typical. Is this cunt really that big a leftist stereotype to suggest that we use ants and bees to teach children to be collectivist drones!?! But ants and bees are always out looking for sugar - certainly we don't want to teach children to mindlessly pursue high fructose corn syrup! And we cannot have children imitating praying mantises - that would be an endorsement of religion. We cannot have children imitating wasps - that's too close to WASP's. We cannot have children imitating ladybugs - that would be sexist. Japanese beetles and gypsy moths are also out - for obvious reasons. Perhaps flies? Maybe we could have the children struggle with one another on a desert island, Survivor-style, to become a so-called Lord of the Flies? We will have to kick this one upstairs to our Jewish Media Overlords to sort all this out.

In the meantime, I would like to offer my opinion on what anthropomorphized animals in children's media have led to in our society...
