DISCUSSION: Political Correctness and the Holidays

It seems like every year around the holidays’ people find something to be outraged about. It has gotten to the point where I’m desensitized to it.

I’ve noticed that there’s been outrage around the classic Christmas cartoons Rudolf the Red-nosed Reindeer and Frosty the Snowman. They’re old cartoons. Of course, this shows how much society and our culture has changed. Does this mean we should suppress it? I don’t think so.

I think we should use these classic cartoons as a teaching moment for the kids. Explain that these are classics and they’re old. Teach them whatever you don’t agree about the program, but also show them how simple and happy the cartoons are.

I believe political correctness will become a problem when we start using it to delete the past. We should be able to learn from our mistakes, not try to hide them. History is important to any culture, and to see it disappear saddens me.

I am not a Social Justice Warrior by any means, but I do have a small handful of causes I stand up for. None of which involve trying to ban classic holiday cartoons and classic Christmas songs. Let the holidays be fun, save the Social Justice Warrior stuff for the upcoming year.
