Just when you thought you’ve seen it all with the astounding blabbering from liberals and how every little thing needs to be gender balanced and with a variety of cultures, you now have a show that will see its first major upgrade in 73 years. It’s Thomas the Tank Engine and now he and his buddies on the show are getting replaced by characters who are more gender balanced with a new array of multicultural backgrounds all to appeal to a very small crowd of people who complained about the cartoon. You know, because turning the show off is too hard for people to do, they have to force their own agenda on everything they see and make everyone else bend over backward for them. At this point, consider the rest of the article an opinions piece, because I’m personally 100% fed up with this nonsense. Aren’t you?

We’re talking about trains, folks. Seriously? Could this get any more embarrassing for humanity? Who on this planet has ever had the time or need to complain about the characters on a children’s cartoon show? No one that I know, that’s for sure. How many people complained? To me, it seems like a small handful of liberals with nothing better to do than ruin everything that people have liked for a very long time have complained and now the company responsible for the show has given in to the minority for the win. Well, sounds like a loss to me. That’s because I don’t like when things that aren’t broken are fixed just to meet the special needs of a few people who complain instead of watching another show or making their own.

The Independent stated a few things that we can go over and likely laugh about. Because, you know, this cartoon is serious business and we should take the complaints and need for every little thing to be liberally perfect as seriously as possible (insert belly laugh here).

The Steam Team is now gender-balanced, with three male and three female characters: Percy, James, Gordon, Emily and new members Nia and Rebecca, as well as Thomas. The brand hopes this will boost appeal among female viewers, with girls representing more than 40 per cent of the show’s viewership.

And, as Thomas leaves Sodor for the first time, he will encounter characters from around the world, many of which are female, such as a new African steam engine from Kenya called Nia, Ashima from India, Yong Bao from China and Shane from Australia.

First of all, find me the kids who are complaining over the last 73 years. We can all sit here and wait and I bet there are little to none in existence. This is probably some angry liberal gender-neutral parent making the complaints themselves. Boo hoo.

In recent years, the TV show has come under fire from some parents who believe Thomas sets a bad example to children. “The engines are all very rude to each other most of the time,” wrote one parent in a review. “I believe it teaches bad behaviour with examples of jealousy and envy and plain old mean-spiritedness,” added another.

Who cares what one parent thinks while the rest are all happy with the show? Not me, that’s for sure. Are the engines rude to each other? Who cares if they are? That’s actually kind of how guys chat back and forth. Sometimes that’s how males joke around with each other. These are trains, not ballet dancers, get with it people. So two people complained and here we are changing a show to appeal to the gender-bender generation of people who can’t handle anything that’s part of real life?

Thomas & Friends has also been accused of being sexist for its lack of female characters and for not being ethnically diverse enough.

Accused of being sexist by who? I want a list of people who complained. I don’t believe the list is long enough to merit a politically correct change that no one really cares about.

However, 73 years after Thomas the Tank Engine was created, the iconic British brand is today unveiling the latest changes intended to capture a new generation of fans around the world.

This generation is being raised by wimps and people who can’t figure out their own gender.

Maybe it’s time we bring back bullying because this nonsense that forces everyone to be more politically correct is pathetic and I’m tired of it. This generation is weak, sad, and filled with people who complain about everything. Toughen up, buttercups.
