I know this is very unusual, but I really would recommend you watch this. I know South Park has been deliberately provocative in the past but this season was so unexpected!

It is all centred around the arrival of a new Principal, "PC Principal" who turns the whole town in to what I imagine a current reader of Everyday Feminism to be e.g. someone constantly spouting on about the non-binary gender bias micro aggression of saying he or she (for example).

Featuring topics such as Caitlyn Jenner, immigration, Donald Trump, advertising and media, and gay relationships, as well as the "PC Bro" culture.

Of course it gets a bit weird, but I really would recommend at least the first few episodes.

Sure, you do that.

Satire is lost on some audiences, I guess.

i haven't watched South Park for a while but they've always been pretty good at treating absolutely nothing as sacred.

You know this is the feminism chat board feminigran? or did you get lost on your way to a thread about anger management or something?

Thanks for the heads up OP.

I've just got to finish poking all the men I know with a pointy stick then I can watch it.

Yes, don't forget to completely emasculate them beforehand Glen, it really adds to they enjoyment. wink

Femin perhaps you don't understand rather than just being a GF but South Park is taking the piss out of over the top, overly PC "feminism".

Femingran, no one is making you read this. You are choosing to. If you don't like it, then don't read it.

It kind of saddens me a bit that people think the tripe on sites like everyday feminism etc is feminism though, that it's all identity bullshit, safe spaces chat and empowerfulising sex work. That's not what I mean by feminism.

(Ps ignore the Gf)

I think feminigran has won me over with their powers of oratory. I think I'm going to give up this feminism business.

Is it the school holidays already?

honeysucklejasmine Thu 17-Dec-15 15:08:33

Lol Beyond yes, the while Ad thing got a bit confusing!

I loved the "safe space, don't cross" tape round PCA house.

And the running CJ/pedestrian joke.

(DH was confused "did she really kill someone?!" and a little horrified when he googled it.)

Anyway, i think caitlyn jenner is totally stunning and brave.
