It’s Getting to be Hard to Keep Up

Thought crime, it’s so…so insidious.
Mulan is now politically incorrect.
Now, when that came out, it was the last word in political correctness.  Chinese girl defies patriarchy, dresses as man and enrolls as soldier, proves herself, saves China.  What could be more appropriate for forming young minds?
Sadly, though, she developed a crush on the young general or something.  Such a relationship is now inappropriate and sexist.
Off with her head — or to be precise, his head.  The attraction between Mulan and the general is deleted from the remake.
‘…producer Jason Reed confirmed they were uncomfortable with the power dynamics in their relationship…’
We mount ever upwards.  The moral purity is getting positively dizzying.
