One of my nephews used to have a Thomas the tank engine toy locomotion when he was a kid. I'm sure that's why he's so prejudiced, now that he's eleven-ish.
The Guardian is kind enough to publish an article where the author accuses Thomas the tank engine of being a) racist, b) misogynist c) a homophobe and d) "stupidly smug" (the last one is literal). Allow me to boil it down a little, so you don't have to read through this mess:
a) The good trains on the show blow white smoke, while the evil trains blow black smoke. What do we make of that? Thomas the tank engine is racist.
b) There is only one female train on the show, and she is said to "know her stuff". That's misogynist.
c) In one episode, a pink train is bullied. Homophobic.
d) That's a direct quote.
The world is in desperate need of un-apologetic manliness such as ulbator promotes. Don't be a pussy - wear ulbator.
Not for Pussies!
