Judging by what the culture has deemed appropriate recently it is safe to say that this performance during the GRAMMYs is good:

But Dr. Seuss books are bad and ruin minds.

Other things deemed social acceptable today:
The Netflix show "Cuties"


Drag Queen Story Hour, with free twerking lessons
What I Saw at Drag Queen Story Hour

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o17G-q6GSXI - Twerking starts at 4:07

Dr. Seuss is terribly confusing but these books won't confuse children at all (especially if they are read to them by a man in a dress):
My Princess Boy - An Amazon "Teachers' Pick" as well!
Julian Is a Mermaid - Another "Teachers' Pick"
I'm Not a Girl: A Transgender Story
It Feels Good to Be Yourself: A Book About Gender Identity

Also When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment has been deemed in appropriate and offensive by the worlds largest bookseller Amazon but these books are A-OKAY:
Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler
The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx
The Anarchist Cookbook
The Satanic Bible


In case anyone is wondering which way our culture is trending towards...
Can't wait to see what comes next /sarcasm

Lol wait til the news of the awful ratings. Nobody cares about celebrities anymore like they used to, they've made us all just that sick.

I used to somewhat enjoy the awards shows but I'll die before I ever turn anything of the kind on ever again.

Reactionaries have always hated the grammies. When I was a teenager, the conservatives were throwing a huge fit about Eminem. A few years later it was Lady Gaga. I'm also sure this is nothing new. When boomers were in their prime, their parents despised their rock music.

Some people will always view current pop culture as a sign of the destruction of society.

The people that actually own the rights to Dr Seuss decided to make changes. They OWN it. Their right. The irony that Dr Seuss was a champion of understanding and diversity is thick.

"The Sneetches and Other Stories is a collection of stories by American children's author Dr. Seuss, published in 1961. It is composed of four separate stories with themes of tolerance, diversity, and compromise: "The Sneetches", "The Zax", "Too Many Daves", and "What Was I Scared Of?"."

Funny to see grown adults lamenting the demise of some relatively unknown children's books. People who never seem to question the censorship of real literature by their own kind.

Guessing that Dr Seuss were the last "books" any of these folks ever read. And they may have only looked at the pictures. Maybe because they find Dr Seuss "confusing". LOL

What I am hoping is that Hollywood sort of goes away. That is: Myriads of people with ever expanding lower end equipment possibilities (IE the Nikon D7500 can shoot in 4k. cost 1K) flood the market for entertainment and by some miracle a video sharing source that is alternative to Youtube free of censorship emerges.

I know. Dare to dream.

If you support this, I'll venture that it is already too late for you.

Welcome to the new world but if you are over 25 stop staring you are a pervert.



It is refreshing to know that after so many years of the strong feminists movement that demanded and then taught us that we should see women have more to offer than their bodies that we are right back to that and don't worry boys if you are feeling left out because in 2021, you can be a sexy girl too.

The hypocrisy is nauseating.
