There are two distinct issues here. First is the irrefutable fact that the vast
majority of Americans engage in gluttony and sloth to levels never before seen
in this Country. By and large, they don"t even want to engage in anything
even remotely as challenging as this simple board game. They would rather sit
around watching reality television, while collecting welfare. They do call upon
the left-wing doctrine of political correctness as a shield to prevent anyone
from criticizing them.However, it is also an irrefutable fact that
the modern entertainment industry is openly attacking traditional marriage and
family at every turn. Indeed, this industry has an open and stated agenda of
promoting wanton, uncontrolled sexuality. With this as the goal, the industry
will not and does not hesitate to sell deviant sexuality to as young of children
as possible. There can be only one solution here. All parents who
truly care about the welfare of their children must turn their backs on all
entertainment that does not promote the traditional values that made this
Country great, such as: modesty, chastity, sacrifice, hard work, and
I completely understand why people are offended. After all, no one in America is
beautiful and skinny anymore. Look around, everyone is F A T! We need to make
Candyland and other games politically correct. Obviously, characters in
Candyland should be fat, ugly individuals with rotting teeth!
It's just a game!
There is nothing wrong with showing fit and beautiful people. I don't see
anything wrong with either candy land or Disney. In this country of increasing
obesity it is even more important to emphasize fitness and taking care of
oneself. Our societal propensity to be politically correct in an effort to not
Hren feelings is out of control.
I am a proud prude, but neither one of those characters comes across as
"sexualized", at least not more than any Disney princess. Cartoon
characters are always idealized, but no harm no foul here unless you are all
freaked out that Wilma Flinstone wears an off the shoulder dress.
Its getting tiresome hearing about larger and unattractive people getting angry
at the suggestion its also perfectly ok to be skinny and attractive. If they had a fat and ugly princess wouldnt that be encouraging kids to be fat
