It snowed last night...
8:00 am: I made a snowman.
8:10 - A feminist passed by and asked me why I didn't make a snow woman.
8:15 - So, I made a snow woman.
8:17 - My feminist neighbor complained about the snow woman's voluptuous chest saying it objectified snow women everywhere.
8:20 - The gay couple living nearby threw a hissy fit and moaned it could have been two snow men instead.
8:22 - The transgender man..women...person asked why I didn't just make one snow person with detachable parts.
8:25 - The vegans at the end of the lane complained about the carrot nose, as veggies are food and not to decorate snow figures with.
8:28 - I was being called a racist because the snow couple is white.
8:31 - The middle eastern gent across the road demanded the snow woman be covered up .
8:40 - The Police arrived saying someone had been offended.
8:42 - The feminist neighbor complained again that the broomstick of the snow woman needed to be removed because it depicted women in a domestic role.
8:43 - The council equality officer arrived and threatened me with eviction.
8:45 - TV news crew from BBC showed up. I was asked if I know the difference between snowmen and snow-women? I replied "Snowballs" and am now called a sexist.
9:00 - I was on the News as a suspected terrorist, racist, homophobe sensibility offender, bent on stirring up trouble during difficult weather.
9:10 - I was asked if I have any accomplices. My children were taken by social services.
9:29 - Far left protesters offended by everything marched down the street demanding for me to be arrested.

By noon it all melted

Moral:

There is no moral to this story. It is what we have become, all because of snowflakes.

If you've used coal for the "snowman's" eyes, mouth and decorative buttons then you are NOT offsetting your carbon footprint by using fossil fuels. May Greta have mercy upon you.

Reminding the men who complain about international women's day that it exists certainly seems to rile them up laugh.

article said:
The College of Policing, the professional body which delivers training for all officers in England and Wales, issued their Hate Crime Operational Guidance (HCOG) in 2014, which states that a comment reported as hateful by a victim must be recorded “irrespective of whether there is any evidence to identify the hate element”.

Mr Justice Knowles expressed surprise at the rule, asking the court: “That doesn’t make sense to me. How can it be a hate incident if there is no evidence of the hate element?”
Exactly!

Especially amusing....“The role of British police today goes beyond bringing offenders to justice when they commit crimes,”

They don't even do that. If they did then there might be some justification for moving into the minority report world of pre-crime. Clearly no shortage of resource in Humberside.

Why - bit low? 200 out of 10.5 million viewers seems negligible. They probably get more complaints on a week there are no same-sex pairs. Mind you why anyone watches the competitive gurning is beyond me.

The title says "easily offended"... I'd be amazed if they'd had any complaints at all prior to this.

In a list of TV complaints so far this year both Love Island and Corry (M Lipman's IVF comment, don't cha know) came out worse than Strictly. And a couple of others. I need to get out more. biggrin
