".....FIRE chiefs have banned much-loved children’s TV character Fireman Sam — for being a man. Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue service has axed the 30-year-old favourite from promo material saying he is too male and puts off women from joining up...."

Any predictions of which mascot will be next in line to be removed from advertising campaigns etc because "they are too male" for the PC Elite?

Yes, I found that story via Titania McGrath's Twitter account and it was too good not to give. :) It is a shocking news story though.

How many classic childhood TV show, book and movie characters are not going to become familiar to 21st century kids thanks to this in slow motion censorship of traditional characters?
Nothing — nothing — stands up to cancel culture scrutiny. It would be funny if it wasn’t so tragically stupid.

This is sad news. That claymation series looked like a healthy and friendly way to introduce children to both fire safety and volunteer/career opportunities. For me, the tip-off that this is about agenda and not inclusion or equality is that rather than introducing new characters to spread the good word via true diversity, they just want to axe a successful public outreach program altogether instead of growing its presence in a balanced, healthy manner.
