Now Be a Good Boy

Sigh. Will there ever be a moment in 2019 when I can just watch a movie without there being another PC agenda that needs to be shoved down my throat? What do I mean? Well, let's see.


(Ding dong goes that good ole doorbell.)

Young adult woman 1: (Opens the door.) Hey, can I help you?
Boy 1: Uuuuuh I hope so Ma'am. We were using our drone to follow a family of turtles and we thought it might've crashed in your backyard.
YAW 1: Oh yeah yeah it's here. Come on in. (They enter. She locks the door.) So you guys like turtles?
Boy 1: Yeah.
YAW 1: That's awesome.
(They walk into the kitchen.)
YAW 2: Time's up MFs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Boy 2: Shit, it's a trap!
YAW 1: You think I give a f ##k about turtles?!
Boy 3: We're sorry! We just wanted to learn how to kiss!
Boy 1: Lucas! It's none of their business!
Boy 3: We should've just told the truth. We're going to a kissing party and none of us have ever kissed and we're scared!
Boy 2: Hotdammit, Lucas! I've had SEX before, but I've never KISSED a girl.
YAW 1: Just go online and type in how to kiss. That's what everyone does.
Boys: Oooooooooh!
YAW 2: It's VERY easy.
Boy 1: Look, can I please have the drone back? It's a BD Rolling Thunder. It's my Dad's. He needs it for work. Can I please have it back? I really need it. Please?
YAW 2: I don't think so.
Boy 1: If you don't give it back, I'll tell my Dad you stole it.
YAW 1: Then I'll tell him you're a pervert. We'll tell the whole school.
Boy 2: This is central harassment!
YAW 2: We'll tell everyone that you're a misogynist.
Boy 1: I've never massaged anyone.
YAW 2: (Whispers in his ear.) This is wat happens when you don't respect women.

Sign. That took me right out of the movie. They just had to shoehorn in another PC lesson because... men are inherently badIt's so 2019 and I'm sick of it. 

So thank you, Ghostbusters 2016. Thank you The Last Jedi. Thank you Captain Marvel. Thank you, Shazam. Thank you, Gilette. Thank you, Spider-Man Far From Home ("and therefore I have value?"). Thank you, Batwoman ("I'm not about to let a man take credit for a woman's work"). And thank you, The Good Boys. We have learned our lesson. 

Enough said.

  1. Really?
    That's right, we're all evil.
    I already knew I didn't want to see it. You've confirmed that feeling.

    1. It was just this scene, but still, there had to be a scene.

  2. haha at least they weren't as blatant as that stupid Batwoman. God, that show is so cringe worthy.

    I was going to watch this one if it appeared on Netflix, may still if I have time.

    1. It's just this scene, Cat. Batwoman can go kiss a snake.

  4. And this is why I haven't been to a movie in close to 2 years. And don't get me started with the cost of a bottle of water in a movie theater.

    1. Produced by Kathleen "The Force is Female" Kennedy... Enough said.

  6. I saw a commercial for that movie and it looked to be as bad as Porky's circa 1980-something.

  7. I understand what they are trying to do, but they are doing it all the wrong way. As a women, I know the struggle. I live it every single day, but you learn to either laugh it off or deliver a perfected eye roll. That being said, movies like this should be lighthearted and funny. They are meant to make us laugh and forget about our problems, not be reminded about them. I mean, if I wanted to be reminded of it, I'd just eavesdrop on the boy's club conversation in the lunchroom. They should save these life lessons for Daniel Tiger and Paw Patrol. Our children need to hear it, that means the boys AND the girls.

  8. That movie seems strange, based on that bit of dialog. Yes, all men are bad. It's true. But I sure do like Willy Dunne Wooters . . . and Franklin. Maybe some men are good. Especially Franklin. I kinda like my son, too, and you, Blue.

    Love,
    Janie

  9. I'm like Betty … I haven't been to a movie/film in ages … and I don't think that is likely to change.

    All the best Jan

  10. There are so many, many things that don't need to shoved down our throat. That's all I can say without going off on a rant!

  11. Not something I will be watching! Thanks for sharing Blue!

  12. I watched a series on Netflix, The Society, that was like that. I enjoyed the series but whenever anyone kissed someone else they added a disclaimer, "Is it okay if I touch you" or "Is it okay if I kiss you" right before they actually did it even though the scene was leading up to it. I get it, they want to make it clear that each party is willing but it was so oddly placed in each scene. Hard to explain.

    1. How did this happen... What will history books say about 2019?

  13. Yep, men were born evil and sexist and white men are all racists whatever they do, say or even think. And women are always victims of some injustice (it is never their own fault) and black criminals are always caught because they're black, not because they're... um... criminals.... That is how the world goes these days. All of today's period set shows are filled with feminist agenda in eras when they did not even know what feminism was!

  14. There’s a big brother lesson in everything these days, Blue. Ya can’t even escape to fantasy without a face slap. It’s terribly tedious.

    1. Those people make me sick. I've been talking about the rise of the PC Brigade for years. Well, they're here, all right.

  15. I think the PC police have gone a bit far these days. The fact that most movies, shows and even some books feel like they have to 'teach' you a lesson or something is beyond irritating.

  16. I've met a lot of bad men. And good ones. I don't need society jamming stuff down my throat. I can tell which is which.

    1. Exactly. THAT'S what I call true empowerment. Not that PC bs young kids (and adults alike) get rammed down their throats these days - unbeknownst to them, of course.

  17. I liked it when movies were made for entertainment. Now, it all about personal agendas.

    2. I guess if everyone closes their wallet they will listen until then it will be the same agenda. Use your feet and walk away with your money in your wallet.

  18. Everything Dezzy said. I've had some heated arguments with my 20 year old daughter over this PC shit lately. Apparently I am just and old school idiot that doesn't know how to get with the PC times.
