Good idea, bad idea, makes no difference?

 

Personally, I don't need the warning but I am really interested in how some sections of society are going to react to this.

It has made me aware that I've wasted the last 40 years of my life by not being offended by mundane cultural nuances.

I saw that Warner Brothers cartoons (Tom and Jerry) also have warnings about outdated cultural depictions. 

 

I’m curious about this, because my daughter has commented that the old Peter Pan movies mock “red Indians”, and it’s pretty obvious that there are racist stereotypes with the crows in Dumbo, just to name a few.

Actually, there’s a Graybeard, a Gray Beard, and a Greybeard. 

 

I’m Graybeard and Gray Beard, but Graybeard isn’t used anymore because of a password and email mix up.

I think it's fine I mean it's just a warning it's not like they ripped out the parts to make it okay or age restricted it. I mean it's basically a quick reminder that "Hey these childhood films are great but they probably contain some ***** up things you didn't think about at the time."

Why do I need a warning - I am capable of making up my own mind.  

 

The fact that a few movies have a warning is not a big deal by itself but it is one more drop of water in the wave that wants to control all messaging.

I'm triggered by the fact that they are warning me that I might be triggered. 

And I'm anxious that if I watch, I might not be triggered and then I won't fit in.

Can I request warnings on movies with dudes getting intimate with one another? I'm not down with that.

I guess I have to be against it.  Trigger away!

 

It's wrong to judge a book by it's cover.

 

With that being said, I know that I will not like her

I'm with you. There's been more than a few occasions where I've re-watched films and TV shows and been surprised at some of the language and tropes used that never entered my mind as a kid.

 

It's not my culture that would be depicted in any kind of derogatory fashion so I'm not about to tell people of other cultures that they can't be upset by it.

It's easy when the world can view your "outrage" in one click. I am becoming more analog by the day. Hell, I may even subscribe to the Buffalo News and have it delivered here in Cincy!

I'm not outraged, if that is what you're implying. I guess I could of put it in to a softer light when stating my opinion on society today. I'm glad I grew up in a different world then today. a time when society was not so offended by things as they are today. I mean, it has come to a time where the disney shows that were before and during my time now have to have a warning so the feelings are not hurt.

 

sad.

Watched one of my all-time favorite movies, the classic Davy Crockett on Disney+ the other night...and noticed the "warning."  Let's just say the native Americans were not looked upon too kindly...

Come on.  This stuff is reported on to wind up the kinds of people who get wound up by this sort of thing.

 

It's stupid but meaningless and really, who cares?

 

If this is the biggest problem you can B word about today, you're leading a great life.

It's stupid, but it's not meaningless. It wouldn't have been done if it wasn't intended to serve a purpose. The fact that was done in the first place perpetuates the "triggered" mentality and it's getting closer and closer to where people feel as though they must be offended if someone else is.
