The left’s cancel culture came for Dr. Seuss, and now they’re going after Pepe Le Pew. New York Times columnist Charles M. Blow has decided that a cartoon character taught boys the wrong way to treat girls. The humorless left even canceled Pepe’s appearance in Warner Brother’s Space Jam 2.

After Blow’s declaration that Pepe Le Pew should be canceled, he’s upset that RW (Right Wing) blogs are calling him out for his ridiculous claims:

RW blogs are mad bc I said Pepe Le Pew added to rape culture. Let’s see.
1. He grabs/kisses a girl/stranger, repeatedly, w/o consent and against her will.
2. She struggles mightily to get away from him, but he won’t release her
3. He locks a door to prevent her from escaping.

This helped teach boys that “no” didn’t really mean no, that it was a part of “the game”, the starting line of a power struggle. It taught overcoming a woman’s strenuous, even physical objections, was normal, adorable, funny. They didn’t even give the woman the ability to SPEAK.

Some of the best comments back at Blow on Twitter point out the absurdity of his claims:

-What child is watching those cartoons and thinking about sex? Most kids watched that and thought it was gross. There is not a pandemic of rape going on now nor was there the latter half of the 20th century when kids were watching these cartoons.

-Man, I watched this all the time as a kid and somehow – apparently despite all odds – never became a serial rapist. On the other hand, I have repeatedly learned the hard way that dropping an anvil on someone does NOT turn them into an accordion.

-I grew up in the 70s and 80s and absolutely loved Pepe. I always knew it was a cartoon and not to behave like that in real life. I never lost any respect for women and I am pleased to confirm that I am a non raping faithful husband with 3 kids, two of them girls.

-1. Kids don’t get horny watching Looney Tunes 2. Kids don’t get life lessons from watching Looney Tunes. 3. Parents teach their kids what is or isn’t appropriate. I watched Road Runner growing up and I never dropped an anvil on anyone.
