I honestly don't mind Betty's input here, guys. We need different perspectives. I posted about my engagement here specifically for that reason. It's all good.

Yeah, but everything has got its time and place. I don't say to a the family with a newborn child "Congratulations, the kid is going to die someday though like any of us". Inappropriate with bad timing describes the situation best.

Yeah I get it. I'm just saying, as the one who started this topic, that I'm not offended and I welcome even contrary opinions.

Jodie Whittaker quits Doctor Who:
https://www.radiotimes.com/news/tv/scifi/2021-01-03/jodie-whittaker-leaving-doctor-who/
IMO, the classical example of how PC shouldn't have been done by BBC this time. She is a very good actor, the bland narration with characters who "tick the boxes" instead of the fit the role best around her let her down. The low Xmas viewer rating with people being home in a lockdown situation nailed the coffin.

I enjoyed her a lot in the role. It's what got my fiance into the show to begin with. I honestly liked the dynamic of her companions as well though I think 3 was too many. Should go back to 1.

Heard Michaela Coel is being considered as a successor. Would be a great pick.

Looks to me like a woman with legs opened wide but my mind is pretty perverted. Her claim is ridiculious.

Good for them. Ugly ass logo.

Still not sure what was offensive about it, because nothing is stated in that article.

I honestly didn't think of a woman spreading her legs when I saw the logo. Even now after reading the comments ere, it still looks like the letter M to me and nothing else.

Whoever complained about it in the first place has a very perverted mind and should lay off porn for a little while.

Also, even if were to go down the same perverted path as the person who complained about it, why did they immediately assume it was a woman spreading her legs? It could've been a man as well.

Imagine having nothing better to do than contacting companies and complaining to them about your own perverted interpretation of their own logos.

Tbf, changing the logo because it potentially looks like that is stupid as shit

At the same time, they changed their logo to be like, barely different. Who gives a shit?

PC culture can fucking suck a lot of the time but I have to say, the reaction to PC culture is awful in and of itself as well. If no one paid any attention to this, it would be nothing. Just a slight redesign. Instead, people go and make a huge deal about it.

The way I usually feel is that PC culture is truly an issue where both sides act like they're constantly victimized and both sides annoy the fuck out of me.

I agree, CB. We’re all contributing to it, though. I mean, you could’ve ignored «the right’s obsession with human trafficking», but you didn’t. Hysteria generates attention, and both «far» sides of the political spectrum work towards that hysteria - often times, to the detriment of their actual goals.

I never said nobody could talk about it, including or especially including us. My point is about how PC culture and anti-PC culture is one big circle jerk where the other tries to act like the victim more than another. Unfortunately this is often done through manipulated or deceiving means, as well.

That's different from me commenting on the right coopting human trafficking as an issue. I'm not crying victim, I'm laughing/observing. Same as if I commented on the ever increasing hard overlap between the right and conspiracy theories.

There is nothing wrong with debate. There is to me with constantly acting overly victimized. This isn't true of all political talk, but for me it's true of PC and anti-PC culture

Adopting american ideals in europe has always been a fool's errand. France being a colonial power doesnt mean it is alike to the US. In fact they couldn't be more different.
