The logo in TFA doesn't have the overlapping bits.  Is that the redesigned version?

Probably, a search for the article's logo only shows up in the last day. This logo seems "ok":

But when you just use the "M", yeah that's a problem.

It looks more like an invitation to happy fun time than "offensive."

Please, explain it to me like I'm a first grader.

I don't know why it's offensive but I do suddenly have an urge to fap.

Imagining a thing to be something other than what it is does not make it the imagined thing.

And every rocket ever launched was purposefully  an offensive penis figure.
Cause what you see is just of course the objective reality everyone else must also be subject to.

It's an M, for a company whose name starts with ... you guessed it, M.

Ignorant militant feminists need to stop making crap up.

Well, let's see. First the Earth cooled.
And then the dinosaurs came, but they got too big and fat, so they all died and they turned into oil. And then the Arabs came and they bought Mercedes Benzes.
And Prince Charles started wearing all of Lady Di's clothes. I couldn't believe it- he took her best summer dress and he put it on and went to town...

Exactly.

Are we going to outlaw the letter "m" now, like tOSU does every year for a week in November?

Complaining about stuff like this is the equivalent of crying wolf - it causes people to ignore you when you point out actual issues.

I mean, why would anyone take this activist seriously when they think a logo in the shape of an M is offensive to women?

Don't insult them by assuming that they are unable to intentionally and maliciously make crap up, just as men do.

zgrizz: Ignorant militant feminists


I'm not saying that every person I've ever met who uses the phrase "Ignorant militant feminists" unironically is an incel loser, but every incel loser I've ever met does like to use the phrase "Ignorant militant feminists" unironically.

You'd think they could afford some curtains.

The curtains are there.  You just can't see them from this angle.

And yet, the vast majority of people in this thread saw exactly why this is offensive to women. Hint: it's not the letter itself.

mofa: It looks more like an invitation to happy fun time than "offensive."


What if you look at it from the point of view of the "toy".

"I'm not offended, therefore it's not offensive."

I watched the first 2 eps of TheTrickster on the CW last night.  Know what offended me the most?  Evidently they can say 4 letter words like f* and s* in Canada.  The CW blocked the lips and muted the sound when one of those civilization destroying words were uttered.  Me?  totally threw me out of the show. So much so that, considering it's been cancelled, I don't know if I'll bother seeing the rest of the season or not.  And  I was kinda liking it, it was above the 50% continue/drop meter.

Oh, why was it cancelled?  Seems the showrunner either wasn't woke enough, or woke too late, or or got caught in some old twitter stuff, or some bullshiat.  Since when did a showrunner's political opinions get a show cacelled?

It may have been OK on any network other than the CBC.  They're all about white guilt.
