Lately some politicians have been making somewhat exaggerated complaints about the role of the media in various respects. After the news of the bisexuality of the new Superman, a senator from USA He assured that the comics sought to destroy the entire nation.
Later, another politician from the USA complained of an alleged war on masculinity that brought young people closer to pornography and video games. It seems that the exaggeration has already crossed the pond, because now a member of parliament from United Kingdom he made a similar accusation.
This politician already has the answer to why there is a rise in crime
Recently, Nick fletcher, a Conservative member of parliament from United Kingdom spoke about his concerns for youth. The politician said that the change of beloved characters, recognized by all audiences, makes young people seek a life of crime.
During his speech, the politician said: ‘There seems to be a call from a small but very vocal minority that every male character or model should have a female replacement. We just have to see the discussion of who will be the next James Bond. Not only is it him, in recent years we have seen Doctor who, the Ghostbusters, Luke Skywalker be replaced by women. Is there any question why we see so many young people committing crimes?‘
While it’s true that some characters have been gender-swapped in recent years, establishing a link between this and a spike in crime is highly unorthodox. Besides, these are accusations that seem to come entirely from the politician’s own point of view.
Maybe there should be some kind of study to test whether there really is a correlation. Until that time comes, it seems unlikely that a Doctor who or King Skywalker incite young people to lead a life of crime. What do you think of the accusation of this politician?
