It used to be that we live in a world where if you walked into an ice cream store that if the guy in front of you ordered chocolate and you liked strawberry that you would let him order what he wanted and he would do the same for you.
Now, thanks to the nature of how everyone seems to be militantly offended by every single thing these days we live in a world where if one person is offended by something that apparently cuts off access to everyone else that might enjoy whatever that thing is.
There are some things that it would be a given that are considered offensive but those are things that have been mutually agreed upon by the majority of society. However, nowadays the majority doesn’t rule in that situation and if one person is bothered than it screws things up for everyone.
Let’s take going to a movie for example and assume there are ten screens in this theater showing ten different movies. You go into the movie you like, you don’t see the one you don’t like. It’s that damned simple.
Now, if one person doesn’t want to see one movie the whole theater is shutdown…
Via Daily Wire:
An all-male a cappella group at a prestigious university will no longer sing one well-known Disney song because some audience members — and one sophomore who wrote an article about it for the student newspaper — found it to be “uncomfortable.”
Of course, this is all happening at an Ivy League college: Princeton University.
One of the school’s all-male a cappella groups, the Princeton Tigertones, will no longer perform its popular rendition of “Kiss the Girl” from The Little Mermaid after the complaints. During their performance, the group invites a woman from the audience to join them as they sing and “playfully dance with her for a bit,” according to Inside Higher Ed. As the song reaches a close, the group invites a male audience member, pretend to groom him, and then put the two together, asking that they kiss, as the song suggests. The random couple complies, “sometimes on with a peck on the cheek, sometimes briefly on the lips,” Inside Higher Ed reported.
The entire scene is harmless and done in good fun, which of course does not sit well with the modern outrage crowd.
On November 26, sophomore Noa Wollstein wrote an opinion article for the Daily Princetonian asking the Tigertones to stop singing the song because it “is more misogynistic and dismissive of consent than cute.”
“Its lyrics raise some serious issues. The premise of the song, originally sung in the Disney film The Little Mermaid, is that the male Prince Eric, on a date with the beautiful female Ariel, should kiss her without asking for a single word to affirm her consent. Despite the fact that an evil sea-witch cursed Ariel’s voice away, making verbal consent impossible, the song is clearly problematic from the get-go,” Wollstein wrote.
