New age pirates? SJWs demand Disney remove sexist imagery from theme park ride

David MenziesMission Specialist

Political correctness is invading amusement parks with Disneyland recently announcing that its decades-old Pirates of the Caribbean ride is going to be revamped so it won’t “trigger” members of Generation Snowflake. 

It’s 2017 after all, and props that nobody cared about back in the 1960s when the ride first opened are now problematic.

One scene displays female animatronic models captured by the pirates on an auction block under a banner reading: “Auction: Take a wench for a bride.”

SJWs whined about this affront, and naturally, Disneyland listened.

The offending section will soon be refurbished under a banner reading: “Surrender your loot” and not only will the slave women be gone, but one of the wenches will be re-imagined as an empowered she-pirate herself!

She’ll brandish a rifle just like one of the guys, because piracy should really be about diversity and inclusion.

Disney modified another scene back in 1997 to make the pirates appear to be chasing village women for some of the juicy roast beef they were carrying rather than for some non-consensual hanky-panky.

But there was a reason pirates were violent plunderers who engaged in the slave trade and raped women and that’s because they were pirates!

Part of the pirate job description is to be an obnoxious, sexist, violent bastard! So, if you desire a spin on a pirate-themed ride, you’d best get down to Anaheim soon.

As social justice warriors chip away at impolite imagery, I fear Pirates of the Caribbean might one day be completely sanitized for your protection to Girl Guides of the Caribbean.

That is very sad, when history can’t be as it is. I hate it when people try to destroy history, that’s a Hitler type theme.

Disney didn’t need a nudge from SJWs to do this as it had long ago surrendered to political correctness!

If this were some member of the Christian clergy demanding this be taken down or changed , the SJW’s and Andrew would be saying the exact opposite line they spout when it is one of them meddling.

Now we know where no longer teaching history is going to take us….back to the past.

Indeed. One step at a time. beginning with he seemingly insignificant issues and moving on from there.

“Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness. When change is absolute there remains no being to improve and no direction is set for possible improvement: and when experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

Wait, what? You’re endorsing harems of slave-wenches?

Let’s get past opposing change for the sake of opposing change … for what reason could you think the old version was better than the updated one?

1. Andrew no one said they endorsed anything.
2. The old version was better because it was in coherence with reality and history. Not some weird lefty fantasy world.
3. Lets get past endorsing change for the sake of change.

I never know what to expect next. Remove sexist imagery? Next thing they will be asking us to accept ta cross dressing effeminate pirate with dark eye shadow prancing about the poop deck. Oh wait. I forgot about Cap’n Jack.

At least when it was imagined originally it was trying to be true to books and stories of the period being represented. Removing, piece by piece, those bits that offend these idiots makes these parts of our culture less and less about reality and what happened and more about pretend time for children.

Sanitizing the culture is about cleaning alright, since brainwashing is a form of cleaning.

Why don’t these leftard feminist groups start the battle against sharia law, and stand up for their muslim sisters?

No, we only endorse IED building, grenade throwing, psychopaths in this enlightened age.

Good thing the SJW’s are illiterates, or we would have to ban Rob’t Louis Stephenson and Sir Walter Scott.
