Everything Is Problematic: Little Bo Peep

Yes, you heard that right. This week on Everything Is Problematic, we're going to have to explain how and why Little Bo Peep is problematic. To be fair, the "p-word" was invoked by the People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) who, if you're not aware, are a bit of work themselves. I'd call them a joke, but jokes are supposed to be funny, and the punch line of PETA is money raised to help animals resulting in further animal abuses.

Everything Is Problematic: With Gendered Or Non-Gendered Language You Just Can't Win

The latest ridiculousness with PETA began just after the Super Bowl. Disney's Pixar had just released an ad for Toy Story 4, the latest installment in the franchise that made Pixar a household name.

In it, Bo Peep has been "modernized" (to keep up with the times, I suppose). If you weren't aware of the SJW rule of thumb, giving an inch doesn't just result in them taking a mile, it often ends in boycotts, threats and vitriolic insults and no amount of backpedaling is ever sufficient to prove that you're contrite of your thought crime.

The "new" Bo Peep is no longer in the frilly, bright, pink dress she wore in the first three in the series. Now she's in a cape and sort of, I don't know, pajama pants? Whatever the get-up is supposed to be, several folks are drawing comparisons to Rey from the new Star Wars movies.

PETA's manager of Animals in Film and Television, Laura Thomasson, made a statement on behalf of PETA:

Given that she was designed to have a ‘modern’ look, why hasn’t she ‘lost’ that outdated and cruel crook? You may not know that these ‘shepherd’s crooks,’ are used solely to hook a sheep’s neck and force these gentle animals to move. That isn’t something that a progressive Bo Peep would countenance in 2019!

And yes, this is the same PETA who staged such outrageous and often tasteless stunts as praising shark attacks, claiming dairy products are responsible for autism, dressed up as KKK members to protest the Westminster dog show and ran an entire campaign they called "Holocaust on Your Plate" where they featured images from concentration camps with the tagline "To animals, all people are Nazis."

Just last December, PETA tried to conflate the usage of terms like "Kill two birds with one stone" or "Bring home the bacon" with "racist, homophobic, or ableist language" as they "trivialize cruelty to animals."

PETA Claims Milking Cows Is Equivalent To Rape

PETA encourages people to replace "Take the bull by the horns" with "Take the flower by the thorns" and offer up other dandy suggestions for new idioms like "bring home the bagels" or to "feed a fed horse" and one of my personal favorites, "be the test tube" as opposed to making references to guinea pigs in animal testing.

Oh, but worst of all is how PETA is responsible for the death of over 36,000 animals since 1998. In short, they're primarily a money-making organization, that thrives on outrageous stunts to continually fund what is, for them, big business.

90% of the dogs and cats "rescued" by PETA were euthanized within 24 hours according to documents from inspection by a Virginia veterinarian. For more information on just how bad it is, you can visit

Rise Peter, slaughter and EAT! Who are you earthling man to call unclean and unedible what God has made clean and edible?
Jesus reasoning with apostle Peter as he removed favor of jews from God and extended favor to Gentiles as well as Jews. Find it yourselves in the Bible

You have to remember that we don't need to cast our pearls before these swine. We just need to recognize and call out that they are swine.
