Punk Rock Cartoon 'pOny' will rock your socks off! -

"The punk rock reincarnation of 'Josie and the Pussycats', 'pOny' (people of NY) is a 90s based animation centered around four female bandmates. Odette Cruz (lead vocals), Pauline Tharpe (lead guitarist), Nina Lee (bass), and Yoshiko Yomano (drums) are coming together to steal a spaceship called T.W.A.T (Trans-dimensional, Wormhole, Amplifying, Transport) from their future selves.

'pOny', the cartoon, is currently in development. Featuring original music inspired by the 90s rock/grunge scene and colorful characters with the help of their growing fan base hopefully the pOny movement will soon be televised. Electrifying, rebellious girl-power themed lyrics reminded me of badass bands like The Donnas. If you’re into time traveling, genre crossing, anime centered in New York City circa 1989 then 'pOny' is for you."

"It has been a long and treacherous journey these past 4 months. Many children will be born between the months of September and December because you left folks no choice but to stay in the house and use each other for warmth. But we’re ready to come out and play now."
Winter needs to be escorted out since it doesn't want to leave on its own free will. This is why I am here with this sternly-worded letter. I am advocating for warmth.
I'm cold. You're cold. We're all cold. The word "cold" is freezing. It's time for Winter to take its leave because we're pretty tired and we miss sunlight.

They are saying that marginalized people are "over-policing" language and infringing upon other people's inherent right to speak freely--even if they are using offensive words and phrases that can perpetuate day-to-day and institutionalized oppression.

How do you feel about that? Do you think so-called "political correctness" has run amok or do you think the real problem is that the power brokers are getting anxious about how some of their power is being taken away from them?

“What I think the political correctness debate is really about is the power to be able to define. The definers want the power to name. And the defined are now taking that power away from them.”

― Toni Morrison

I've never complained about political correctness, but strangely, all the people I know who have complained are conservatives. Anecdotal correlation, not causation.
