CNN tries to ruin Christmas by claiming ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ is sexist

The Counterfeit News Network can’t help itself but being that one person at the Christmas party who needs to be morose, point out as flawed Christmas is, and ensure everyone else around that individual is just as miserable. CNN is pretty much like George Bernard Shaw.

On Wednesday, CNN’s Carol Costella posted this article: “Is ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ Sexist?

Ugh.

She writes:

It seems like America’s every cultural moment is under review thanks to Harvey Weinstein, Roy Moore and the rest of the men accused of sexual misconduct this year. I can’t even watch a Christmas movie like “It’s a Wonderful Life” without wondering if it is inherently sexist. And I love that movie.

But seriously, if gorgeous, brilliant Mary had never met her George Bailey, would she have ended up working in a library? Worse than that, would she have been an old maid — a fate apparently worse than death when the movie was made in 1946?

I plan to run to the theater to see Sandy and company rule. But have I cooled to classics like “It’s a Wonderful Life” and “Baby It’s Cold Outside?” Kinda. I most certainly will never watch that movie or hear that song in the same way I did when I was a kid. And that’s a good thing.

Why must everything be viewed in the lens of feminism, social justice, race, and every other leftist cause du jour?

It’s a movie. A damn fine movie. One of the most historic and timeless films to ever grace the silver screen, thanks to the excellence of Frank Capra and James Stewart.

Why can’t Costello and CNN leave it at that?

She also goes on to cite “The Nutcracker,” “Baby It’s Cold Outside,” and even “The Producers” as examples of sexism that need to be reconsidered and given another look when we consume these products. “The Nutcracker” is superb music and dancing. “Baby It’s Cold Outside” is an enjoyable song when hearing the Johnny Mercer version. “The Producers,” well, everyone knows how great that is.

The Compost News Network needs to relax, have a good time at Christmas, and stop trying to ruin everything for everyone.
