Millennials Are Problematic

‘Friends’ the nineties sitcom mainstay has come to UK Netflix. Apparently, some of the precious little snowflakes can’t handle its “problematic” “racism” “homophobia” and “transphobia.”  Por ejemplo:

Chandler was increasingly uncomfortable with his sexuality in the earlier seasons of Friends, and was horrified when he discovered that a lot of women assumed he was gay when they first met him.

In one scene a co-worker tries to set Chandler up with a man and the rest of the episode is dominated by his obsession with proving that he’s straight.

He even uses his friend’s grandmother’s funeral as an opportunity to hit on a woman to prove that he’s not gay.

The scenes haven’t stood the test of time, with one saying they ‘can’t get over’ the homophobic undertones of the episodes. One tweeted: ‘It’s crazy to watch Friends on Netflix now and realize how homophobic and misogynistic the show really was.’

No wonder Generation Z hates the Millennials.

It’s almost as absurd as leftists trying to claim Haiti isn’t a sh-thole.

I’ve been watching some reruns of Absolutely Fabulous. Another nineties sitcom that would probably send social justice wankers into paroxysms of virtue signaling faux outrage.

  1. I’ve been watching Cheers — the writing is excellent, the jokes are clean, but today’s SJWs would NEVER let a show like it air nowadays. Too bad- it’s hilarious.

  2. I cannot help but wonder about what we can assume today’s status of the first episodes of Married, with children to be, for those people.

    Totally okay (to make fun of white) or totally intolerable (not funny at all) on that one?

    I’d almost flip the coin. Go figure.

  3. @2 Somehow, though, I have slightly less doubts about the case of, say, John Landis’ Coming to America (1988) featuring Eddy Murphy.

    Especially if the audience happens to be made of a random sample of Amherst or Yale or etc, students.

    Go figure. (Bis repetita.)

  4. No wonder Generation Z hates the Millennials.

    Thank God for that, at least.

  5. Never mind classic cartoons – Bugs Bunny can certainly be problematic.

    Can you imagine the paroxysms of rage that would be induced by a Benny Hill episode?

    When I contemplate the billions of people in the world with real problems (like starving to death or being hacked to death in some jungle war), I have to wonder what they’d think about our special little flowers – and then I’d know why they hate us.

  6. Can you imagine the paroxysms of rage that would be induced by a Benny Hill episode?

    Oooh yeah. That one. Yes I think I have an idea, good sir.

    (Not that I ever found that show more than silly/mildly funny — but definitely, if you still find it anyhow funny, today they’d probably demand you be stoned to death before making you, your kids, and grandkids to pay for “reparations” — no doubts about that.)

  7. Chandler Muriel Bing and Val Goldman of ‘The Birdcage’ are examples of characters poorly-written considering they were supposed have been raised by modern-day gay parents. Chandler’s character never rang true when gay topics came up, …and Val Goldman and his idiot girlfriend are the true oblivous antagonists in the film.

    Did anyone explain to the writers that Armand and Albert raised Val??

  8. OT — in other news, even if you get anywhere close to the truth, you can no longer refer to other countries as being turned into lhitsoles by their governments:

    But hey, qualifying your president as a Nazi or calling him Hitler is perfectly acceptable, actually, expected — hence, totally okay.

    Comment by Cyril — January 12, 2018 @ 6:53 pm - January 12, 2018

  9. And never what Haitians themselves have been saying since 2015 about their own not-a-lhitsole government:

    Or more recently:

  10. *And never mind

  11. I’ve only seen a few eps of Friends, and it hardly seemed politically incorrect. It seemed more like an approved PC sitcom for the progressive tastes. I wonder how these millennial snowflakes would feel about sitcoms like Married With children or Three’s Company.

  12. Btw, here is the compelling argument on the utmost importance to always say or write what you truly think or believe:

    (Or at least, to not do the opposite)

    No wonder, then, who finds president Trump’s alleged words about Haiti absolutely intolerable.

  13. Can you imagine All in the Family in the current climate?

  14. In the old days gay had the best gay jokes.

  15. How about the British TV series Vicious? I can watch it, but only in small doses. (It is about an elderly gay couple. The two men do love each other, but the bitching satire is hard to take. If I was one of them, I would have run for the hills!)

    Comment by Larry — January 13, 2018 @ 5:29 am - January 13, 2018

  16. I consider it a source of great pride that I’ve never watched a single episode of FRIENDS.

    OTOH, I could watch THE BENNY HILL SHOW and ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS all day long. The scene where Edwina found out that Saffy’s baby’s father was black was one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen.

  17. #8 Cyril – complaining about the POTUS and calling them Hitler and other foul names is only acceptable when a GOP POTUS is in office. If a DNC POTUS is in office anything but groveling and praising them as a diety is racist – sexist – whateverist.

    Even now any truth told about Obama makes the Leftists squeal and start calling names.

  18. Nothing better than AbFab. At 3:30 on this particular compilation: “Let’s just tax the stupid”. Hard to beat that!

  19. I don’t if anyone here remembers a show called “Frank’s Place” by Tim Reid (Venus Flytrap). It and anything by Mel Books just couldn’t be done now. Though I would love to see a Brooks take on today’s SJWs, “come on guys I’m talking about a REAL song” da camptown ladies…………….

  20. Don’t ever let them find out about South Park

  21. wow friends was transphobic before there were transsexuals.

  27. @23 I tried to watch a number of episodes (because of various audiences around me who seemingly were into it)…that was years and years ago.

    I concur: I can’t recall to finish watching only one.

  29. How could one watch Friends and NOT realize how lame it is.

    I felt the same way about thirtysomething, which was the group dynamics show of the early 90s. I wasn’t (yet) in my 30s and the characters all were dealing with issues I couldn’t relate to: marriage, making babies, and ‘careers’.

    Fast forward 2.5 decades, and the clips of the show I’ve seen since its original airing I still can’t relate to. I’m still not into marriage, making babies, or careerism. Funny thing is that most of the gay characters on teevee these days are portrayed as being obsessed with all those things (but mostly about marriage and raising children). Of course one can’t be an acceptable gay today without being legally married and having kids (preferably of the designer variety).

  30. AbFab…probably one of the funniest things on TV ever. To those ladies nothing was sacred…the were definitely equal opportunity offenders!

  31. Anyway, that was more my taste:

    “Well, if you’re the sheriff you’d better get these men in the ground.”

  32. @28 : humour done right.

  33. @ 29, how about Young Sheldon that is a horrible show

  34. I’ve called Coupling, “Like friends, but funny.”

    Oh and I introduced the future Livewife to Match Game 78 on Amazon prime. Now THERE’s a show that would make millennials explode.

  35. It isn’t just Generation Z that hates Millennials.

  36. We should get a panel of Millennial snowflakes to watch the first season of All In The Family, and watch their heads explode.

    Or maybe a showing of Blazing Saddles?
