Normies are waking up to Hollywood’s excessive decadence, and some of those normies are complaining about Show Dogs

 

Summary: Normies are waking up to Hollywood’s excessive decadence.

Reprint of someone else’s work:

 

Max’s success is riding on whether or not he lets both his partner (for practice) and a stranger (the competition judge) touch his private parts.

IN A KIDS MOVIE. WHAT???

Newsflash, folks: THIS IS CALLED GROOMING and it’s what sexual predators do to kids!

It gets worse. Maldonado describes the movie’s dramatic dog show finals scene:

The day of the finals come and if Max doesn’t let his private parts be touched, he may lose the competition and any hope of finding the kidnapped panda.  It all rests on his ability to let someone touch his private parts.  The judge’s hands slowly reach behind Max and he goes to his “zen place”.  He’s flying through the sky, dancing with his partner, there are fireworks and flowers-everything is great-all while someone is touching his private parts.

So a stranger touches Max’s privates and it MUST feel good because Max has gone to his happy place while being fondled.

UMMM. NO.

Maldonado saw the movie with not only her kids, but her husband and her mother too. After the movie, all three adults felt uncomfortable with the “private parts” stuff. She says:

Turns out, it appears the Show Dogs movie has some problems.

After what I’ve learned about it from another parent review, I am SO GLAD my son did not see this movie. Let me explain. Terina Maldonado, parent reviewer for the Macaroni Kid website DID take her kids to see an advanced screening of the movie as part of her job with Macaroni Kid…but she came away with some seriously BAD feelings about the movie. I’ll let Maldonado explain in her own words.

It all started out fine, she says:

“The premise is great for a kids movie.  Max is a talking police dog (voiced by Ludacris) who is paired up with a human partner, Frank (Will Arnett) to infiltrate a prestigious dog show and rescue a kidnapped baby panda.  Being a tough dog from New York, Max has no business competing in a dog show but uses his street smarts to outperform the competition to get closer to the inner circle of kidnappers.  Along the way, Max learns lessons about trust and the need to accept help from others.  The usual hilarity ensues with dog farts, bites on the rear-end, and slap-stick bonks to the head which elicit giggles from the audience. “

It’s when Max the police dog learns what he has to do to truly go undercover and be accepted as a legitimate show dog that the trouble with this movie starts. WHAT does Max (and apparently all the show dogs) have to submit to?

Having his private parts touched and inspected. Yep. Maldonado continues:

“What could have been solely a fun movie for kids that would get my highest recommendation is damaged by a dark and disturbing message hidden, not so subtly between the fluffy dogs and glamorous parties of the show dog lifestyle.  As part of any dog show, contestants are judged on their abilities and physical attributes.  One part, in particular, is the inspection of the dog’s private parts.”

Max, of course, is  NOT cool with this, and when his partner Frank and a former champion show dog try to get him to accept this process, a certain dark and very dangerous theme for kids emerges. Maldonado explains:

“Since the inspection of the private parts will happen in the finals, Frank touches Max’s private parts to get him use to it.  Of course, Max doesn’t like it and snaps at Frank for him to stop.  Max is then told by the former champion, who has been through the process before, that he needs to go to his “zen place” while it happens so he can get through it.  More attempts are made by Frank to touch Max’s private parts, but Max is still having trouble letting it happen and keeps snapping at him.”

Max needs to get it together, see, and LET PEOPLE TOUCH HIS PRIVATE PARTS, or he might lose the competition and fail at his mission to rescue the kidnapped panda.

During the movie, I kept thinking, “This is wrong, it doesn’t need to be in a kids movie. Everything else in the movie is good fun except for this.”  Afterward, my husband mentioned that he picked up on this message too, as did my mother who saw the movie with us.

Maldonado then goes on to mention that she is a survivor of child abuse, and describes how she will talk to her kids about the movie and that part in particular and use it as a lesson to instill in them they lessons she’s already taught them about how “we never let anyone touch our private parts, what they should do if anyone tries.”

How the script and premise for this movie EVER got approved scares the CRAP out of me! This is 100% indoctrination. I will not apologize or care if anyone thinks I am crazy for thinking so. This is letting a movie of funny cartoon dogs teach our kids that hey, “sometimes ya just gotta let someone molest you.”

NOPE. Parents, do NOT go see the Show Dogs movie. And please share this so other parents won’t make this mistake before they know what’s up. The message here is WAY beyond inappropriate — it’s downright DANGEROUS for our kids!

Big Gay Kai’s Procedurally Generated Gay Nightclub Simulator

Every character in All Walls Must Fall is a procedurally generated gay man. If you thought fictional gay male characters were stereotyped, you haven’t seen how bad procedural generation can make a stereotype. There is no point paying attention to the characters, because they have no characterization. You can’t possibly care about them.

There is no rhyme or reason. There is no characterization. You can flirt man-to-man or kill man-to-man. It doesn’t seem to make any difference whatever you choose. I would like to pretend that the devs were making a subtle allegorical point about how the promiscuous sex of gay culture is depersonalizing, but let’s face it, they simply made a bad game with procedurally generated paper cut-outs pretending to be characters.

The game is initially charming because the techno soundtrack is truly inspired. The neon-lit nightclubs look impressive for the first two levels until you realize that every single level is a neon-lit gay nightclub.

Dragon Age: Inquisition and high-resolution 3-D models of white girls

If you are an ugly man but you like looking at white-skinned* supermodel-tier women, video games are a frequent source of entertainment. The girls in video games don’t have to deal with any of the real-world complications of being a super-skinny girl (e.g. anorexia, infertility, anemia).

However, it is not worth your time to play this unless you have high-resolution graphics. Consider the following high-resolution model of a supermodel:

In the high-resolution model, you can see pores on her impossibly perfect face. This will distract you from the fact that her voice actress is basically just “The Baroness” from G.I.Joe.

To make the comparison inescapable, they gave her a cute little Prussian duelling scar.

In the real world, Prussian dueling scars only became necessary when men were no longer getting real scars as a result of real medieval battles. A man with such a scar is already trying too hard; a woman with such a scar is just ridiculous.

The writing is beyond cartoonish here. This character is not a woman. This character is the embodied frustrations of a 14-year-old boy. He wants a girl he can hug, but he wants that girl to respect his aspirations to manliness. In fact girls are not like that. Girls are unfair. You can hug girls (most of the time they will hug you first) but girls don’t try to exercise manly valor. (Girls do sometimes try to get manly privileges. A feminist girl who manages to become a soldier typically wants to be an officer. Europe is currently burdened with female secretaries of defense. They did not achieve their positions by overwhelming competence.)

Stolen from zhai2nan2: Manga can subvert public order; this is a feature, not a bug

Thanks to the efforts of mass media, it has surfaced that the Matsue City board of education in Shimane Prefecture has severely limited students’ access to the 10-volume manga series “Hadashi no Gen” (“Barefoot Gen”), a best-selling antiwar and antinuclear weapons classic. The board told the city’s elementary and junior high schools in December to remove the manga from library shelves and to require students to get permission from teachers to read it.

More than 1,200 citizens have protested the board’s decision by telephone and e-mail. The decision, which was actually made unilaterally by the board’s secretariat, is deplorable. The board should immediately rescind it. It should not forget that the decision has deprived students of an important chance of learning about the cruelty of war and the horrific nature of a nuclear attack.

In a similar development, it has come to light that the central library of Tottori City in adjacent Tottori Prefecture placed the Hadashi no Gen series in the library’s office two years ago. The series was removed from a shelf of children’ books following a complaint from a parent. It was returned to the shelf on Friday.

The series was drawn by the late Keiji Nakazawa, who died last December. He survived the Aug. 6, 1945, atomic bombing of Hiroshima but lost his father and two siblings that day. The series revolves around the experience of Gen Nakaoka, a 6-year-old boy, during and after World War II. It graphically depicts not only the harsh reality of the atomic bombing and the hardship in the years immediately after World War II but also atrocities committed by the Imperial Japanese Army, such as the beheading of other Asians and rape. It also includes harsh criticism of the Emperor Showa, at times calling him a “murderer.” Hadashi no Gen was translated into about 20 languages including English, French, German, Russian, Italian, Korean, Norwegian and Indonesian. It was also adapted into a TV series, feature movies, plays and musicals, and has been used to teach peace education in schools.

According the Matsue board of education, in August 2012, a man sent a request to the city assembly asking that the series be removed from school library shelves, saying that its perception of history was wrong. Although the assembly turned down the request, the secretariat of the board accepted it and did not submit its decision to an open meeting of the board members.

Thirty-nine schools that possess the Hadashi no Gen series complied with the decision. Because the decision concerned the freedom of expression and people’s right to know, the head of the secretariat should be punished for carrying out this unilateral decision in a completely non-transparent manner.

Let us hope that Chuck Dixon can overwhelm Vox Day in the “Alt Hero” writing

Castalia House will produce three more 48-page volumes of Alt★Hero. All three volumes will be written by Chuck Dixon, the comic book writer who is famous for his well-regarded work on the Punisher for Marvel, and on Batman, Nightwing and Robin for DC Comics. He is the co-creator of the character Bane.

https://freestartr.com/project/althero/

Alt★Hero is a world not too terribly different than our own. It is a world where the Wehrmacht generals overthrew Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party in 1939, and where the first atomic bomb was dropped on the order of Reichskanzler Jodl on Soviet territory in 1944, leading to the fall of the Soviet Union in 1956. It is a world where Japan attacked Australia instead of Pearl Harbor and China occupies the Korean Peninsula. It is a world of four superpowers, where the European Union rivals the United States of America for wealth and influence, and where China and Russia possess the two most formidable militaries on the planet.

And Alt★Hero is a world of newly discovered superhumans.

I will read it before I pronounce whether it’s good or bad.

In general, I am not a big fan of superhero stories.

This does lead to an interesting comparison of superhero stories and horror stories, however.

Die, Hollywood, Die!

Even before this catastrophic Labor Day weekend is factored in (more on this below), the domestic 2017 box office is in hideous shape. This year is –6.3% behind 2016 and continues to fall behind 2015, 2013, and 2012.

If you figure in inflation, those numbers are even worse. For example, in 2012 the average ticket cost $7.96. Today it is almost a full dollar more at $8.89. Yeah, things are that bad and will look even worse on Tuesday.

With no apparent faith in their own product, this is the first Labor Day in 25 years where a new title has not been released on more than 1,000 screens. Over this weekend last year, the box office hauled in nearly $130 million. This year will do about a third of that.

Seth Stephens-Davidowitz claims that women are the majority of violent porn consumers

For the record, I don’t trust Seth Stephens-Davidowitz.

Article follows:

Contrary to what feminists like to claim, pornography that shows submissive natures and violence against women is mostly viewed by women.

The submissive nature of being dominated is a major fetish to many women who are aroused by the thought of being abused or choked or restrained. It’s a turn on.

Girls with pretty faces in video games

Here is a girl with a pretty face.


Now that you have some idea of what a girl looks like, let’s think about video games.


Here are a bunch of video game images trying to look like a real girl.

Just to remind you, here is the real girl again:

So … games that try to be about pretty girls seem to have some serious video issues.
The latest Mass Effect game has enough money to hire a supermodel. But it doesn’t have enough money to hire a 3D expert to model her face.

This is a problem of style over substance.
