Have you noticed a theme recently, something that the Left has been doing more often? Well, for one, they seem entirely unable to laugh at anything. In part because their ridiculous code of standards has made it nearly impossible to laugh at anything even remotely funny.
This time, the rule violation was (shuffles deck of oppression cards)... Fat Shaming! Which is somehow a real thing, and somehow people actually believe that our bodily shape and roundness and all that has nothing to do with the food we put into our body and the amount of exercise we do. So far, over 120,000 people have signed a Change.org petition imploring Netflix to stop the release or "Insatiable." Yeah, that's right, the show isn't even out yet and they're already protesting. They haven't even seen it and they're throwing tantrums about it.
The petition says that Netflix perpetuates "not only the toxicity of diet culture, but the objectification of women's bodies," and they will accept nothing short of cancellation. "The damage control of releasing this series will be far worse, insidious and sinister for teenage girls, than it will be damaging for Netflix in their loss of profit."
That's right, the show isn't even out yet and they're already protesting.
Netflix describes the show as involving "Patty, a high school student who has been bullied, ignored, and underestimated by those around her because of her weight. But life changes quickly after she has her jaw wired shut following a punch in the face, and finds herself suddenly thin."
I will say, this reliable hysteria does make for some good comedy. I mean, if we can't laugh about it, we'll wind up as stressed and uptight as they are.
