avatarben2015-12-01: I said so much last week, I have no idea what I shoud talk about this week. Oh, yeah: we're nearing the 100 Facebook likes, with 98! So if you're feeling generous, now is the time to click on a button. You'll change a life. My life.

Okay, I got it. Let's talk about Nickelodeon's Paw Patrol. Oh yeah, I went there. Anyone who has a toddler will tell you: Paw Patrol is a terrible show, because it's full of rehashed animations, dumb storylines, and forgettable characters. That's okay though, all of these shows are terrible. But anyone with a little girl will tell you: Paw Patrol is a terrible show, because it's sexist. And I'm very sexist myself thank you, but not as much as Paw Patrol.

[Shouting starts here.] WHY IS THERE ONLY ONE FEMALE DOG WHEN THERE'S SIX OF THEM? WHY IS SHE DRESSED ALL IN PINK? WHY IS SHE MENTIONED LAST IN THE OPENING OF THE SHOW? WHY IS SHE ALWAYS THE LAST IN THE ROW WHEN THE DOGS ARE CALLED ON A MISSION? WHY DO I CARE SO MUCH ABOUT THIS? [Shouting doesn't really stop here; only the caps do.]

Gawd
, what were they thinking? When I saw Paw Patrol was trending among toddlers, I was psyched. I couldn't wait to ditch Caillou and Dora in favor of 3D sparsely-populated-town-saving dogs. But you see, I have a daughter. And I didn't realize dogs were a boy's thing. Skye, the Paw Patrol girl-dog (ahum), is not a terrible character in herself. It's the fact that she's an obvious afterthought that's terrible. She's like the free DLC you get when your Assassin's Creed game has more bugs than usual. This shouldn't happen in 2015.

Now this is the part of my diatribe where I would usually explain my point of view in detail, because you have no idea what I'm talking about, because I'm a crazy, crazy man. But I won't. I'll just post this:

Paw-Patrol

You see her? She's like... waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay over there. In the back. That's where she belongs. Fetch me a beer, Skye.

-Ben!
