Movies are rated basically according to the following: cursing, sex, violence, suggestive dialogue. You know, stuff that could potentially traumatize an unsuspecting kid who wandered into the wrong movie theater. But it’s not enough. Now leftists want to rate movies based on their WOKEness, and they have Chelsea Clinton’s support.
Yes, the same Chelsea Clinton who totally isn’t thinking of running for anything anytime soon. That one. Because Democrats are gluttons for punishment.

Ruining movies by ranking them according to how #SJW they are is the progressive thing to do after all. Think of the chitlins!
Common Sense Media (CSM), a non-profit organisation based in San Francisco, has been reviewing films and television shows since 2003, with the intention of informing parents about the media their children might consume. It provides the minimum age each film or series is suitable for…
After urging from its users, CSM announced in June that they would be developing the system further—to account for representations of gender. CSM argued that parents “want help choosing content that better reflects the world we live in today”, and cited research indicating that negative gender representations on screen “can affect children’s sense of self, relationships and career aspirations”.
In theory, the system is quite simple: a film will be awarded the organisation’s seal of approval if it presents characters that defy gender stereotypes. Films designed for early childhood (between the ages of two and six) should depict boys and girls as friends and equals. By the time of early adolescence (between 11 and 13), films must demonstrate that worth is based on more than just physical beauty. In foregrounding the lazy depictions of men and women on television and in films, the move is being hailed by some as a breakthrough.
These are probably the same critics who used the lady Ghostbusters as the measuring stick for how woke you are (see Original Ghostbusters Director: No, It’s Not Sexist to Hate the Remake and Jackass Judd Apatow Shames ‘Ghostbusters’ Critics by… Calling them ‘Trump-Supporters’).
Socialist fiends are attacking freedom from all angles. When they’re not trying to stomp all over individual rights with leftist policies, they’re trying to socially bully you into conforming to their cultural whims. This rating system is no exception. I’m guessing a Progressive Book Burning Club for Intersectional Social Justice is next in line.
