The Rights Of Man : CITIZEN KHAN IS NOT RACIST IT’S MAN-HATING MISANDRY

leave a comment »

Whenever a show like Citizen Khan comes on the TV, the Guardian and various politically correct types get very twitchy – accusing the BBC and others of racism. The absurdity of it is that if the ethnicity of the character was changed, and it was just a white Christian man in a Christian family they wouldn’t bat an eyelid – such is their hypocrisy. They also go into some ideologically torment because one of the writers is actually Asian so they cannot heap racism at them.

They had probably written their critical pieces before they had even seen it.

Some (good and bad) articles are here – Guardian, Independent, Telegraph and BBC

The bigger issue though is that it is another example of television (and the media in general) portraying men and fathers as idiots.

The main character is made to look like a buffoon but he is the one that came to the country (the show’s words not mine), worked his backside off to create a business and a home for his wife and family – and he is portrayed as an idiot.

It is another example in the long line of characters that show men as idiots and used to undermine men and fathers. Where is the equivalent about a women and mother.

Citizen Khan is not racist it’s men-hating.
