Hey Factory Fans!

Well, The Simpsons has finally gone woke. I guess it was inevitable. I have to say, that I’ve watched the show every season and this is the first season I find myself getting up in the middle of the episode to do other things as the show plays. I used to bide my time with other shows until the Simpsons, now I’m biding my time during the Simpsons.

I think it’s high time journalists and people in Hollywood get out of the Twitter bubble. It may be a fast way to validate your own opinion, but I think it turns you into a preachy know-it-all. And that mental state can’t help but to come out in your creative endeavors. It’s like we’re paying for other people’s trauma from the 2016 election or something.

I have a few friends in that bubble and I had to mute them. After two years of posting every CNN article about Trump, I was just like— Enough. Women’s liberation started in the 70’s, Marvel has plenty of female and gay characters that could’ve been made into movies and the Simpsons doesn’t need to go woke just because it’s the latest trend. None of that changed when Trump got elected. We were fine the week before and the week after.

Everyone should stop freaking out. Everything’s fine. Well, everything’s not fine, but it was never fine. It’s no less fine. Actually, probably slightly more fine. That doesn’t mean there’s not problems, but compared to the rest of history and the rest of the world, our problems are very small and first world.

I’m going back to watching Bob’s Burgers. So far, it’s not preachy. Fingers crossed, it stays that way.

At Super Frat, it’s Your Fratoscope.

“My biggest kick comes from the individual fans I run into. Middle-aged men ask me when we’re going to do more Johnny Quest cartoons.”
