Oh, I'm sorry. This is for an argument. If you're looking to complain, you just go down the hall to the door on the left.

There are a lot of people that are refusing to view media through the lens in which it was created. The phrase “it’s wrong now, and was wrong then” appears at the start of a few Disney+ shows and while I agree with the sentiment, it’s not true. It was 100% not wrong then it was widely acceptable to use stereotypes in media.


KatyPerrysBigFatCock t1_iu3ybr3 wrote

Widely accepted and wrong are vastly different. Slavery was widely accepted but it was still morally wrong no matter what lease you view.


[deleted] t1_iu3yo2l wrote

Morally wrong is subjective and slavery was considered morally right my many/most people of the time.

Just because you and I in 2022 believe it’s wrong doesn’t mean it was wrong to the people that lives during its time.


SpuzzLovely t1_iu41miw wrote

There been moral opposition to slavery since the Persian Empire, anyone who wasn't a wealthy land owner wasn't a fan.


[deleted] t1_iu41x6j wrote

I did not know that buy I also have vetted the information so I don’t know if it’s true. Slavery also has little to do with Charlie Brown or stereotypes in old media which is what my original comment was about.

Man just give up, you’re not gonna convince anyone they slavery wasn’t wrong.

True story: I was banned from The Wonder Years (1988) because in the pilot, Kevin "does something that is bad". Yes, in the pilot, he throws an apple into the cafeteria. Which is a very disrespectful act.

Immediately after he throws the apple as in literally the next scene, he is in a meeting the principal with his mother. Let me repeat this: our main character does something that is bad and there are immediate consequences to doing the bad thing. Which is literally a good thing to teach kids: "if you do something bad, you immediately get punished".

I don't know how my mother thought the show was promoting bad behavior. Sometimes a character does something bad but negative consequences happen at the end of the episode (there was a later Wonder Years episode where Kevin starts cheating in class and is he is placed in an advanced class and is overwhelmed at the end of the episode) but this was a case of "character does something bad and immediately faces negative consequences".

It's from the 2nd Urotsukidoji OVA series which is 2 episodes long and was also released as a film called Legend of the Demon Womb.

It's more of a horror series as while there is sex and rape it's done more as a 'oh my god that's horrific' rather than erotic way like most hentai does it.

I got the first two films as a birthday present from my parents when I was 13.

At the risk of sounding super lame—this just feels like active parenting. Parents should be monitoring what their kids watch more than ever. And we probably shouldn’t have been allowed to watch half the stuff we saw as kids. Idk what’s currently happening in Charlie Brown though, just more of a general comment on kids media.

I was more shocked when launched and I found out those MAD Magazine ripoffs I used to get on bulk from garage sales as a kid randomly turned into one of the most relevant websites of the early 2010s. I was browsing the site for like a year before I realized they were the same too lol.

I was a big fan of Cracked when I was a kid. Moreso than MAD.


brb1006 t1_iu2qmfk wrote

Same here, I hadn't visited since they ditched the red, yellow, and white layout years back. I knew that site wasn't what it used to be once they changed the layout.

The departure of Seanbaby didn't help either, I still read his article titled "Frosty the Snowman Declares War on Christmas" which I read every Christmas season for a good laugh.


CleverInnuendo t1_iu2sq3e wrote

I was so sad when they became Buzzfeed Lite. It used to be a daily part of my internet.


brb1006 t1_iu2uauu wrote

I remember visiting Cracked almost religiously during my Middle School and early High School days. Sometimes during computer class, I would be able to read the articles on that site because of how super amusing the writers discussed a certain topic.

My favorite was their "Top "Insert Number" famous people that were secretly perverts" where they talked about the dirtier side of famous people and authors. It's where I first discovered Osamu Tezuka's (Astro Boy, Kimba, and Unico) secret naughtier drawings of anthropomorphic animals and his X-Rated Animated Films.

The more they began to rely on user-submitted content and the commentariat, the less vital they became.

Auntie Meme was a fantastic contributor, but what Auntie Meme represented was the death knell.


brb1006 t1_iu5rxh8 wrote

Not familiar with Aunite Meme, what did they contribute to?


Bears_On_Stilts t1_iu5wu8p wrote

Auntie Meme began as the winner of a “contribute a joke, infographic or meme to Cracked” contest. And they kept winning over and over so the site started letting them do whole articles. And then even more articles became nothing but user submitted content… which led to staff writers getting laid off or looking for better work.


cmetz90 t1_iu2yxjy wrote

Yeah, but it’s a shell of its former self. The site got bought by EW Scripps in 2016, and shortly after, Jack O’Brien (who basically built the site with Jason Pargin) left. Then like a year after that Scripps fired almost every full time staffer, before selling it off to another parent company. As far as I know the small handful who survived the purge all left of their own accord eventually… I don’t think anyone at the current version of the site was there before ~2018.


brb1006 t1_iu5rzx8 wrote

Not to mention the removal of leaving comments on articles.


OneGoodRib t1_iu60i30 wrote

Yeah, but it's not really worth visiting. The listicles are lazy as hell now and you can't even comment on anything, and sure the comments on websites are cesspools sometimes but often the comment section on Cracked was people pointing out that the article had gotten information extremely wrong. I can't help but wonder if the decision to get rid of the comments was mostly based around that one time the author was like "butter dishes are stupid and useless" and everyone was calling him an idiot over it. Like he was ANGRY about how much he can't understand how to use a butter dish, it wasn't like joking incompetence.

MortalWombat1974 t1_iu3h842 wrote

This article is written about a small minority of INDIVIDUAL parent reviews, and ignores all the sensible ones, as well as the CSM review.

When I went to common sense media to check, their official rating of "It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" is that it's appropriate for kids 4 and up. They give it 5 stars.

Even the consensus of the parents reviews says it's appropriate for kids 6 and over.

I've read plenty of good articles on cracked. This was not one of them.


OneGoodRib t1_iu60n1v wrote

Yeah it turns out "read positive reviews for a beloved nostalgic piece of media" isn't really a super interesting article.

Consider the source of the article. Cracked. Formerly a respected satire magazine, now forced online because it couldn't compete with Mad (which stopped publishing new material about 3 years ago) for years. The writer is taking umbrage at the right wing gasbags who've needlessly scandalized "Great Pumpkin" just to have something to vent about.

In other words, nothing to see here.

To be fair, I can kind of understand a parent being angry at a kid's TV show if it actually contains inappropriately "adult" material, such as sexually suggestive ads in gaming magazines in the 1990s:

No wonder Cracked is basically dead.


OddFeature t1_iu8z0pz wrote

This is such a pretentious and out of line article—just the epitome of trash, click-baity journalism. The author literally went to a site specifically meant for parents to discuss whether media is appropriate for their young children and bullies and chastises them for having an opinion. He takes a handful of reviews and twists it into this narrative about how parents these days are way too sensitive and demand too much or something—completely ignoring that this is their curated space to have nuanced discussions with like-minded people. They’re not review bombing IMDB or demanding the studio take the movie down or something. The reviews aren’t even particularly outrageous either.
