Christians upset over Drag Cartoon

milkboys News, Television 19 Comments

The Christian Film and Television Commission is demanding Netflix cancel plans for an upcoming drag queen superhero cartoon called Super Drags, saying the show is “driven by a politically correct transvestite agenda.” Netflix, predictably, hasn’t deigned to acknowledge the ridiculousness.

A petition started by the group asks supporters, “Netflix offers wholesome shows like ‘Clifford, the Big Red Dog’ and even ‘VeggieTales.’ But do we really want our children to sit down to watch a fun new superhero cartoon series and instead have them lose their innocence to sexual wickedness?”

At time of publication, over 26,000 people had signed the petition. The group also strangely insinuates that the company is forcing employees to create the series against their will:

“Netflix has taken the skill sets of those who create wholesome, educational content for children and has inserted the homosexual agenda into their content,” the would-be censors claim.

Netflix hasn’t released many details on the show beyond a brief trailer and the characters’ names. The show revolves around a trio of harried department store clerks who transform into drag queens Lemon Chiffon, Cran’s Sapphire and Crimson Scarlet “ready to combat shade and rescue the world’s glitter from the evil villains.”

  1. Who cares what the Christian Film and Television Commission has to say about anything? This “Commission” is probably nothing more than a small handful of fanatics with nothing more than a letterhead and a printer on which they write press releases. And who cares what shows Netflix schedules? I certainly don’t. I don’t even subscribe to Netflix, or, for that matter, Amazon Prime. or any other similar streaming “service,” I’m not active on Facebook, Twitter, or any other major general interest social media.
    Duz anybody really think anything will come of this? Kidding me? Relax. Nothing will come of this, nothing at all. Nothing any broadcaster does will please everybody all the time. So what?

    1. horsey, I just love your “subtle admissions:

      .

      “Duz anybody really think anything will come of this? Kidding me? Relax.”

      Except that something CAN come of this because of the hold of stupidity they have on so much of America, particularly the vast rural areas of this country.

      Remember when Bill Donohue, head of the Catholic League fought against the film, The Golden Compass? The very same tactics used. And his tactics worked to a degree — even though the film was shown, they scrapped the planned sequels for the remaining two books of the trilogy.

      Except this time, a LOT MORE people in America have turned against the catholic church in today’s America. So, we’ll see just how successful this “commission” is today.

    2. Well, aren’t you special! No chance of your refined sensibilities being assaulted by anything rarer than “Mickey Mouse Meets Superman in the Valley of the Brontosauri,” which had its billion-dollar opening at your local cinema this weekend. Between Netflix and Amazon, you can find almost every decent film or documentary, domestic or foreign, ever made . . . for the price of one local cinema ticket. I’m amazed you deign to admit to knowing what a computer is.

  2. “The Christian Film and Television Commission is demanding Netflix cancel plans for an upcoming drag queen superhero cartoon called Super Drags, saying the show is “driven by a politically correct transvestite agenda.”

    The Christian Film and Television Commission is driven by a politically correct fake “god” agenda.

    They never fail to see how their own words can come back to bite them in their collective asses. The only reason they can come up with their bullshit bullying is because they are doing the very things they blame the homosexuals and abortionists for. Hmmmm. Where have I seen that tactic before [and presently] …. driven by idiot religious? Oh, yes, that’s right … exactly the same things Trump blames Obama for, but EXACTLY what he has and is doing himself.

  3. Netflix now has 104 million subscribers worldwide. I doubt they care what 26,000 uptight, assholes think of their content.

    1. @Alan

      Never, ever underestimate the power of a few numbers. Just think Hitler… or Trump.

      1. Remember the mere ten thousand horsemen of the Khan and his defense of the SILK ROAD. They go to the what is now Russia, France, Germany, and Spain. All from mere Mongolia.
        — YES. Be ware of fewer in numbers.

  4. Could you folks please stop lumping all Christians under the same narrow-minded banner and then labeling us as idiots? According to wikipedia, 75% of Americans identify as Christian. With a population of aprox. 325 million, that means 26 thousand out of 244 million Christians signed this petition. How about you allow that every group has its share of nutburgers and leave the rest of us out of it?

    1. “Could you folks please stop lumping all Christians under the same narrow-minded banner and then labeling us as idiots?”

      Sure, as soon as ALL of you STOP “believing/pretending to believe” in something that as NEVER shown itself/NEVER WILL show itself/NEVER COMMUNICATED TO OR FROM ANY HUMAN IN HUMAN HISTORY AND ALL of you STOP CONTROLLING everyone’s life in every way imaginable.

      Sure, when ALL OF YOU start recognizing “religions” as what they really are: Socio-Political Ideologies [SPIs].

      .

      “How about you allow that every group has its share of nutburgers and leave the rest of us out of it?”

      By “believing” in the very same thing, you’re just as much of a “nutburger” as the rest of them if you refuse to acknowledge that there is, IN FACT, NO “god.”

      1. Wow, so much hate. Why does it matter to you if I believe in God or in the Easter Bunny? If my faith is a private thing which doesn’t lead me to protest and proselytize, then you are affected not at all. The fact that you think I’m controlling anyone’s lives is laughable. Do you honestly imagine that we’re all this ultra organized force? Might as well believe in an organized gay agenda with every homosexual on the planet attempting to subvert society. If so, apparently I’ve missed both meetings.

        As for Carlin’s quote, I agree. The point is that a tiny percentage of said dimwits were also angry/deluded enough to sign the petition in question, so stop assuming we all share the same beliefs and prejudices.

        1. ” so stop assuming we all share the same beliefs”

          A religion at its core is a shared set of beliefs. Telling people not to assume you share the same beliefs as others of your religion is disingenuous at best.

    2. ” According to wikipedia, 75% of Americans identify as Christian”

      I think George Carlin sums up my thoughts on this nicely: “Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that.”

      I point to Facebook, Twitter, and that the current occupant of the White House was able to get there to back up that comment.

      “”and leave the rest of us out of it?””

      @Sixle

      “”1. I don’t care what anyone objects to on religious grounds””

      Exactly for that. That’s the same things people ignored what the nazis were doing to Jews. After all, hey, it’s not me doing that, right?

      My point is exactly the same as my views of muslims. They say they are a religion of peace. Fine. Then IF they are what they say then it is their duty to get rid of extremists and stop passing the buck on others to do that job. Just the same christians should be doing when it comes to the christian extremists. Not caring is how they win.

      1. Bad Muslims are violent and want to kill us all. Good Muslims are peaceful, and just want the Bad Muslims to kill us all.

    4. Wolfboi:

      Your public ignorance is stunning — wrapped in political correctness, all for the benefit of religious privilege.

      “Wow, so much hate.”
      No, just disrespect for what you say you believe in because you disrespect me equally because I believe in facts and evidence proven by science — which you cannot ever claim without being a LIAR.

      “Why does it matter to you if I believe in God or in the Easter Bunny?”
      Because it’s people like YOU who are tearing apart America — politically and socially — witness what has happened and IS HAPPENING via Mike Pence/Donald Trump administration.

      “If my faith is a private thing which doesn’t lead me to protest and proselytize,”
      Except your ‘faith’ is anything but private — I’ve never heard of any chrisssstian that doesn’t proselytize that bullshit that you profess to believe in. And, again, witness what is going on now and you [chrisssstians] constantly protest over some fabricated “victimization.”

      “The fact that you think I’m controlling anyone’s lives is laughable.”
      What you believe in DOES CONTROL as well as SEEKS TO CONTROL EVEN MORE — and none of that is laughable. “Religions” are not religions by definition — what they are more accurately: Socio-Political Ideologies.

      “Do you honestly imagine that we’re all this ultra organized force?”
      No imagination is necessary — YOU [plural] HAVE BEEN an ultra organized force as well as you continue to be. What do you think this fight is all about for the next Supreme Court justice — by you chrisssstians and the Republican party/Trump?

      “Might as well believe in an organized gay agenda with every homosexual on the planet attempting to subvert society.”
      This is how your immaturity perfectly demonstrates your pure ignorance that I accurately referred to.

  5. 1. I don’t care what anyone objects to on religious grounds

    2. I can think of at least half a dozen animated shows that are intended primarily or exclusively for adult audiences just off the top of my head without even getting into Japanese animation (Southpark, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Bevis and Butthead, Futurama, The Simpsons, Drawn Together, Aeon Flux….). Why are they assuming that just because it’s animated it’s child friendly? I thought that’s what these rating systems were for….

  6. PLEEEZE – nobody tell Penboy that Brett Kavanaugh was nominated to the Supreme Court today. When he finds out that Kavanaugh was educated in a Jesuit high school (!), and is a good Catholic (!!) and a solid strict-constructionist conservative (!!!), and a passionate supporter and defender of 2nd Amendment rights (!!!!), his head will explode, and make a mess all over the floor.

    1. “nobody tell Penboy that Brett Kavanaugh was nominated to the Supreme Court today”

      You seriously think I wouldn’t already know that as important as it is?
