    People are even censoring the dead. The ACLU edited some Ruth Bader Ginsburg remarks to eliminate the offensive term ôwomenö. And we are now hearing that Katie Couric edited a RBG interview to make her negative comments about NFL knee-takers more acceptable.

    Your terminology is offensive. Apart from the h-word, itĺs ôhabilixö, ôerectuxö, etc.

    I'm not going to look up Meghan Murphy: I want to maintain my innocence.

    Americans clomping around in kilts is pretty appropriated. Actually, Queen Victoriaĺs .scotland obsession started up kilt love as costume after a couple of centuries.

    OMG. No kidding. Just look at how much mileage certain groups get freaking about about the Ĺcancellationĺ of Christmas every year.

    It is still on Netflix so not canceled. I tried watching it the other night after reading this (Remember that south park movie that said its goal was to offend everyone?), and fell asleep in under ten minutes. I guess not to offensive to make Adrenalin rise.

    I dont have a Netflix subscription at the moment, so have to watch Chapelle’s The Closer in bits and pieces on Youtube.
    The story he told about his trans friend, Danielle, was beautiful—good content, excellent timing.

    Colin Kaspernack was lionized not cancelled.

    Kathy Griffin got a bum rap. Her Trump-head trick wasn't especially funny, but still her treatment was overdone. I actually liked her “life on the D-list” show.

    Dixie Chicks lost revenue, that’s for sure but that is natural a consequence of fan reactions. They also lost a commercial contract, but that seems ok to me when they weren’t hired to voice their thoughts, they were hired for music performance. It is somewhat different than if their political opinions were hired. They were supposed to be politically neutral.

    I thought it was brilliant. But Iĺve been a fan since his Comedy Central show. In this era of brittle intersectional squabbling, I think he gets to what I think of as the individual perspective rather than choosing a tribe.

    I saw a video clip of RBG talking about how her opinion of “taking a knee” chAnged. I don’t know if that was edited to make her opinion more palatable, but she really did say that she had a change of heart about it. I don’t think that can be edited. Now I’m gonna have to go back and find that clip.
