I can understand the "doesn't work" angle (seems a bit odd for the news, though), but really? Blood? My forehead hurts where my palm just was. Then again, it's not Anti-Thomas, just Anti-Thomas Merch.

I've already translated it into Hebrew and published it on FXP.

Is it that complicated to make a distinction between blood and mud?
Besides, most children wouldn't think of it like that..

Honestly, why are they making such a big deal about a paint-job fail?

Spoiler:
The grumpy parents have struck again...(oh boy).

They are now complaining about the Great Race special and that Thomas is now becoming more diverse. I Mean, seriously, look.

I believe that Dee Snider (lead singer for Twisted Sister) put it best about those who are perpetually offended when he testified before Congress. I will not link it or quote it because some of the language is decidedly NSFW.

Oh, yeah, I agree with that 100%. Coming as a metalhead myself, and a Thomas fan, I can say that it's frustrating that organizations and whatnot try to stop things that aren't even bad. If it's something like Cannibal Corpse, I can see why, but silly things like a kid's TV show that is set in the UK is just going too far. I definitely think that Dee Snider summed up my feelings exactly.

I don't remember who said it, but I've heard this kind of thing be called virtue signaling. They're making a big issue out of something as trivial as a kids' show (whose source material is quite mature when you think about it in human terms) so that they can appear as if they're doing something that's meaningful. A non-medical Munchausen complex, if you will.
