Trigger Happy Frog Haterz

April is National Frog Month, and frogs are awe­some — unless you hap­pen to be a hyper-​sensitive SJW snowflake, of course, because then you need to get all offended and join your fel­low trav­el­ers in online bul­ly­ing cam­paigns to cen­sor the appear­ance of the inno­cent amphib­ians from invad­ing your pre­cious safe spaces.

A cloth­ing com­pany offered up on its web­site a denim skirt fea­tur­ing cute sun­glasses wear­ing frogs on it, and left­ist lunatics lost their darned minds over it because they thought the frogs reminded them of Pepe the Frog of inter­net meme fame, and, because some Trump sup­port­ers enjoy hav­ing fun with Pepe themed things, social jus­tice war­riors got them­selves all trig­gered and so they harassed the com­pany sell­ing the skirt (whose frogs do not resem­ble Pepe at all, BTW), scream­ing about raaaacism, until the com­pany buck­led under the pres­sure and removed the “offend­ing” item from it’s cat­a­log. So stupid.

This is Pepe:

This is the NOT Pepe frog skirt

As you can see, the skirt frogs ain’t Pepe, and even if they were (which they clearly are not), Pepe ain’t raaaaacist. Duh. But the vit­riol directed at Zara (the skirt seller) was so thick that they evi­dently felt pres­sured to issue this statement:

The skirt is part of the lim­ited Oil-​On-​Denim col­lec­tion which was cre­ated through col­lab­o­ra­tions with artists and is only avail­able in selected mar­kets,” the spokesper­son said.

The designer of the skirt is Mario de San­ti­ago, known online as Yimeis­great. Mario explores social inter­ac­tions through his work and in his own words: ‘The idea came from a wall paint­ing I drew with friends four years ago.’

There is absolutely no link to the sug­gested theme.”

Ridicu­lous that they had to explain any­thing at all to those thin skinned harpies who can’t han­dle the appear­ance of a frog on a piece of cloth. What’s next? Is the tol­er­ance mob gonna go after Jim Henson’s estate because the pup­pet named Ker­mit, a frog — OMG!, sang about being green? Will Michi­gan J. Frog be next on the SJW hit list?

Stu­pid, big­oted, ranida­phobes! If they can’t dis­cern Pepe from NOT PEPE, they prob­a­bly can’t dis­tin­guish a frog from a toad either, but I think with his mind con­trol abil­i­ties, Hyp­no­toad is prob­a­bly safe — for now.

We all know that once the left gains an inch they want five hun­dred more miles, so I don’t see this mad­ness end­ing any­time soon but I’ll tell you this, they can take my Frog­ger game only after they pry it from my cold, dead, hands.

April is National Frog Month, and frogs are awesome – unless you happen to be a hyper-sensitive SJW snowflake, of course, because then you need to get all offended and join your fellow travelers in online bullying campaigns to censor the appearance of the innocent amphibians from invading your precious safe spaces.

A clothing company offered up on its website a denim skirt featuring cute sunglasses wearing frogs on it, and leftist lunatics lost their darned minds over it because they thought the frogs reminded them of Pepe the Frog of internet meme fame, and, because some Trump supporters enjoy having fun with Pepe themed things, social justice warriors got themselves all triggered and so they harassed the company selling the skirt (whose frogs do not resemble Pepe at all, BTW), screaming about raaaacism, until the company buckled under the pressure and removed the “offending” item from it’s catalog.  So stupid.

This is Pepe:

This is the NOT Pepe frog skirt

As you can see, the skirt frogs ain’t Pepe, and even if they were (which they clearly are not), Pepe ain’t raaaaacist. Duh. But the vitriol directed at Zara (the skirt seller) was so thick that they evidently felt pressured to issue this statement:

“The skirt is part of the limited Oil-On-Denim collection which was created through collaborations with artists and is only available in selected markets,” the spokesperson said.

“The designer of the skirt is Mario de Santiago, known online as Yimeisgreat. Mario explores social interactions through his work and in his own words: ‘The idea came from a wall painting I drew with friends four years ago.’

“There is absolutely no link to the suggested theme.”

Ridiculous that they had to explain anything at all to those thin skinned harpies who can’t handle the appearance of a frog on a piece of cloth. What’s next? Is the tolerance mob gonna go after Jim Henson’s estate because the puppet named Kermit, a frog – OMG!,  sang about being green? Will Michigan J. Frog be next on the SJW hit list?

Stupid, bigoted, ranidaphobes! If they can’t discern Pepe from NOT PEPE, they probably can’t distinguish a frog from a toad either, but I think with his mind control abilities, Hypnotoad is probably safe – for now.

We all know that once the left gains an inch they want five hundred more miles, so I don’t see this madness ending anytime soon but I’ll tell you this, they can take my Frogger game only after they pry it from my cold, dead, hands.
