Mugato: ReverendJasen: Yes, yes. Now tell us how Spongebob and the Smurfs are evil tools to promote the gay agenda and make our kids desire sucking cock.Well the Smurfs are pretty much a sausage fest. They can run a train on Smurfett but she can only handle so much.
meanmutton: I don't understand parents who put their kinds in front of Dora when there's actually good children's TV out there (My Little Pony, Olivia, Phineas and Ferb are all rather good).
cherryl taggart: One of my sons is now 10, and still has a large Dora doll that hangs out in his room. Which he will promptly use as a weapon if anyone disses her. And he really likes girls with the same features, dark hair, olive skin, brown eyes. I'm thinking there's going to be a little Latina diversity in my family tree in a few years. Does this mean the baby Jebus is going to cry?
Burr: He does find the original Looney Tunes hilarious though...makes me proud.
FirstNationalBastard: big pig peaches: My daughter's nearly 3 and could care less about Dora. We followed the no TV until 2 rule.She goes bananas for Daniel Tiger and Caillou which aren't too bad. Dora gives me the willies.Is the Daniel Tiger show decent, in the Mister Rogers tradition?
ChipNASA: What about this??[wizard.gamebanana.com image 186x186] [i405.photobucket.com image 300x220] [images.wehaslinks.com image 320x200]
Famous Thamas: Dora was probably Rule 34'd the day she was created. Do your self a favor and do a google image search with safe search off.
inner ted: ChipNASA: What about this??[wizard.gamebanana.com image 186x186] [i405.photobucket.com image 300x220] [images.wehaslinks.com image 320x200]is it a direct flight to hell for laughing at that or do i get a lay over in purgatory to think about why i'm going to hell for laughing at that?
MacWizard: The author of the article spent wa-a-a-a-y more time considering the ramifications, origin, motivations and metaphysical ramifications of Swiper than the people who created the character. You'd think that "hidden demonology" would require someone to be hiding it.FTA: "We've had this discussion with advisors who wanted us to get into the motivation behind Swiper's bad behavior. We decided that it's cleaner without it. Similar to villains in fairy tales, we don't get into the why."
Keeve: This is not my theory, but I haven't seen it pointed out yet that Dora is obviously a drug mule for the Mexican cartels. C'mon she's armed with a map and a backpack. Swiper obviously represents the border patrol.
Farking Canuck: People who believe that magic is real are entertaining. I think I laughed out loud 3 times while reading that article.How can adults seriously buy into crap like incantations and demonic possessions./Of course they are not entertaining when they are trying to make laws based on magic :(.
jonny_q: When all you can think about is religion-hating, everything looks like a religious rant even if it's not intended that way.
bubo_sibiricus: jonny_q: When all you can think about is religion-hating, everything looks like a religious rant even if it's not intended that way.This. I'm a militant teapot spotter, and this article was worth reading. It's not a fundie rant. Indeed, I think it could be used to troll fundies. The only trollicious thing about it is the title. But then the point of a title is to get people to read the article.Guys, If you're offended by this article, read it again, slower this time.
DjangoStonereaver: Snarfangel: Dora the Explorer, exposed? Rule 34 takes another victim.I have to admit that this image:[media.comicvine.com image 300x418]Did give me pause the first time I saw it. Then I felt rather dirty.
Latinwolf: kid_icarus: Sad thing is, I would normally swear an article like that was satire, except that I know for a fact certain evangelicals take it to that level of insanity with total, serious conviction.When I was a kid, me and my brother had to throw away all of our He-Man and Thundercat toys after our parents were made aware that said shows promote witchcraft. As a rule of thumb (for evangelicals), "witchcraft" was any sort of supernatural power that was explicitly stated as coming from our Lord God.I think you meant "any sort of supernatural power that was explicitly stated as not coming from our Lord God".
Civchic: roc6783: I feel bad for having clicked and read any of that garbage. That being said, when my daughter was born, i told my wife that she will not even know Dora is a thing until she starts interacting with other kids. 6+ months on and I am still winning that battle.//Still have a sneaking suspicion that my wife is better at picking battles than I am though.I lasted most of 2 years. I even watched the NEWS in the morning while getting ready for work. Now he's 3 and I have lost the battle and the war. I haven't gotten my morning news and traffic anywhere but AM radio in the car in months. We were reading a book about zoos last night at bedtime and this was his narrative:"A giraffe! Like Nessa!" (Big Big Friend)"A horse! Like Galahad!" (Mike the Knight)"A monkey! Like Boots!""A cat! Like Jess!" (Guess with Jess)"A walrus! Like Octonauts!"I have failed.
theorellior: Okay, people, calm down. It was a mildly interesting article about the mythological archetypes that the human psyche has carried with it through the ages, and how that translates to young psychological development. Although the author may or may not be a Christian, fundie, crazy person or all three in combination, it really wasn't much of a religious tract, more of a comparative religious tract.Dora is annoying because the way the actor voices her it's LIKE SHE'S SHOUTING ALL THE TIME.
kid_icarus: TFA so much reminds me of this...[i76.photobucket.com image 300x300]/anyone else have their childhood ruined by this garbage?
FitzShivering: Pretty easy to pick out who didn't read the article. There's no herp-a-derp fundy stuff in there. It's actually halfway interesting, and the author even admits it may not be conscious intent to do anything with "demons." Not seeing any, "OMG DORA IS CAVORTING WITH DEMONS MAKE UR CHILDREN STOP"
omelete: // Find myself humming "I'm the map, I'm the map, I'm the MAP!" more that I'd like
ReverendJasen: Bleeding Christ.Another article written by somebody who thinks they're smarter than they are, pointing out half-assed, tenuous links to bad thing du jour from a simple children's show.Yes, yes. Now tell us how Spongebob and the Smurfs are evil tools to promote the gay agenda and make our kids desire sucking cock.
MBooda: OK, thanks, Quinn. Now, do you have the balls to explain Tanuki?[2.bp.blogspot.com image 400x300]
kumanoki: [25.media.tumblr.com image 500x280]Hmph! Hmph! Hmph!
Raug the Dwarf: kid_icarus: TFA so much reminds me of this...[i76.photobucket.com image 300x300]/anyone else have their childhood ruined by this garbage?Holy Crap, man. My parents lived by that shiat when I was a kid. I'll see you that one and raise you a...[ecx.images-amazon.com image 300x300]
the-meter-man: big pig peaches: My daughter's nearly 3 and could care less about Dora. We followed the no TV until 2 rule.She goes bananas for Daniel Tiger and Caillou which aren't too bad. Dora gives me the willies.What? Caillou is a whiny little brat. My daughter can watch Dora any day over that obnoxious kid...
