Non inclusive rebranding.

Yes I know, contentious as always but has this Lincolnshire chief fire officer lost his marbles or what?

He's not real y'know... Fireman Sam that is.

Just from to-day there are now calls not to refer your dog as either "good girl" or "good boy" as that will confuse them, Postman Pat is now being challenged for stereotyping, Dora the Explorer deters boys from becoming explorers... and the Isle of Man should now be renamed.

Re: Non inclusive rebranding.

There could be trouble about Isle of Wight. Some illiterate might claim it potentially discriminates against a yet unfound Isle of Blacke. And what about Isle of Dogs; cat champions will be up in armsFunny

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

And it's not even an island, but who cares.

And let's not forget, no man is an island.

Anybody know where the cloakroom is?

@G3WYP 

In most of the old working mens clubs in Wales at least they'd be hard put to deny it these days.

Sad times indeed.

Re: Non inclusive rebranding.

I'm going to have to rebrand myself.

I'm stereotypically male, old (ish), grumpy, un politically correct, and sick to death of people who have nothing better to do than worry about whether something that nobody should really care less about is upsetting somebody else who should have something better to do.
