Isn’t it amazing how the lack of federal interference is benefiting the Texan customers?I fear there is a reckoning coming in Texas. People are pissed and they aren't going to force them to reduce the price of power after such a colossal fuck up, the power companies are not going to be punished, the people are.
And that is why I like listening to Bill Maher, at some point or another he pisses off everyone.
Everything should be available to anyone at any time
As for the examples you posted, I feel the problem in the Potato Head toy was just an error in communication and a lazy story which would get outrage clicks.
even if it must be clearly labeled as a product of its time and explained that while it was something acceptable at the time of release, such actions are now questionable at best and horrifying at worst. That is just my opinion.
Than ask for a stop to cancelling things.I'm tired of old men complaining about cancelling shit. I'm watching Bill Maher bellyaching about Dr Susse and Mr Potato Dick. He called it a culture war I call it inoffencive business decisions.
Keep in mind that I firmly believe that culture and knowledge belong to everyone, so if a company dismisses a product because they don't want to produce it anymore, someone else should have the right to produce it instead.
Than ask for a stop to cancelling things.
Many things were fantasies, before they became reality. It might as well happen to this one.Well thats a fantasy.
My point is that some of this isn't even being "canceled" it's just crazy conservatives shouting insanity. Look back at the Potato Head issue, nothing happened. Yet some of the biggest names in conservative politics spent more time bemoaning the gender of plastic potatoes than discussing balancing the budget.
That's not how property works
Same here. When a German chocolate company replaced the brown-skinned “moor” in its logo with a golden “mage”, everything changed. EVERYTHING, I tell you!Hey, I still can't over Land 'O Lakes butter no longer has the Native American on the box. Using butter now does not feel the same.
^Isn't that whitewashing, though?
