a fight for women’s rights ….  this time … the targets are train drivers and kiddie cartoon

Too often I see examples of people with too much free time, who have as their sole entertainment, the screwing up of the language and making up, a down thing and down, whatever else they want it to be.
When they have a break in this arduous schedule they look for people they can represent who have been wronged, even when they don’t know or believe they have been.  Here’s a perfect example of just how sexist our culture has become over time, even with feminism and human rights and civil rights being legislated to the degree that nowadays, almost anything anyone says to anyone else, may be taken in such a way as to suggest racism, ageism, sexism and anything old thing you can dream up.

Why aren’t there more female train drivers?  You people never give that any thought.  Do you?  Of course you don’t.
You’re probably uncaring about women’s issues and might be a misogynist.
Have you taken notice btw, of how often that last word pops up in our media, mouthed most often by ppl on the left?  All one has to do is disagree with some feminnazi on any issue and you are ipso facto, a misogynist.
Try living that one down.

So back to trains and drivers and women.  I have no idea of how many ladies there are who surf by this site, but would dearly love to know how many had as a lifelong dream, the idea of being a train driver.  Btw … there actually are a few.  And it matters greatly to a woman named Mary Creagh.
Ms Mary is quite put out that there are so few and even worse, the train driver industry, which is far smaller than the civil rights industry, hasn’t enough train drivers.  And whose fault is that?  Who must answer now to this outrage?  Why …..  this guy.

THOMAS THE TANK ENGINE
that’s who.  And he’s been at this nefarious deed for many years you bet.  That’s right!

Thomas the Tank Engine is Sexist, Says Labour MP Mary Creagh

Classic children’s show ‘to blame for lack of female train drivers in Britain’

By Dominic Gover

A Labour politician has launched an attack on the children’s classic Thomas the Tank Engine with a broadside against the TV show’s portrayal of “female” locomotives.
Mary Creagh blamed the programme, which is based on the series of stories and books written in the 1940s by Rev W Awdry and his son, for a lack of female train drivers in Britain.
Thomas and his steam-powered friends have being chugging around Sodor on television since 1982, but only one of the main cast of engines is female.
Creagh, who is shadow transport secretary, called “a national scandal” figures that revealed that only 4.2% of train drivers in the UK were women. She laid in to Thomas the Tank Engine for allegedly pumping out the wrong message to young girls.
According to Creagh, the female characters in the show are an “annoyance” that posed a hazard to other characters on the show.
She said: “In the Thomas the Tank Engine books there are almost no female engines. The only female characters are an annoyance, a nuisance and in some cases a danger to the functioning of the railway.
“There is a preponderance of men in the transport industry and I am very keen to unpack some of the myths that stop women from taking up what are often highly paid and highly skilled jobs.”
Creagh hailed changes made by the television industry to redress the balance of male to female characters with shows such as Underground Ernie, but insisted that more had to be done.
“There have been some changes. Underground Ernie is wonderful, and there are some female trains in that. But again it is called Underground Ernie, not Underground Rosie.”
A spokeswoman at Hit Entertainment, which owns the rights to Thomas the Tank Engine, said that creators were developing new female characters to bring to the show.

The problem if there really is one, is that overall, women have other interests generally.  Sure, there may be lots and lots of women who enjoy fishing and hunting.  But overall, it seems more males gravitate to those activities. So the numbers will be smaller among the female population.  But has anyone had their rights abused or ignored because maybe, and I don’t even know, there’s some kind of conspiracy among men to deny even more women the joys of fly and tackle and gun?  Is there a conspiracy of some kind to keep train drivers a club for men only?

Oh … btw.  Did you pay any particular attention to her line in which she says,

“but insisted that more had to be done.” Sure thing.  They (libtard left) always “insist” that more of their left wing all is equal agenda be met and always on their terms.  And just about every time, smarter people cave in to them.  Cos if not, then they are fascists, bigots, racists and misogynists and more.  Simply add an ism and it becomes an anti social and fascist thing or person.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
