Woman Behind Destruction of Roald Dahl’s Children’s Literature Described As ‘Non-Binary, Asexual, Polyamorous Relationship Anarchist’
“A profile of Barrett on the Inclusive Minds sight described her as “they/them” and a “writer and editor with a passion for championing inclusive content and policies.”
Last weekend, I blogged about the destruction of Roald Dahl’s children’s literature in the name of wokeness. The outrage and backlash were so profound that Penquin decided that it will continue to publish the actual works of Dahl alongside the new non-Dahl versions—though it seems the completely rewritten texts (including the addition of entirely new sentences, paragraphs, etc.) will still be published as if they were his original works. They are not.
That this was a bad idea was immediately evident to the vast majority of people, thus the blowback and sudden change of plan; however, for some reason, Penguin’s Puffin Books decided it would be a grand idea to destroy the delightful children’s literature of Dahl at the urging of a person described as a “non-binary, asexual, polyamorous relationship anarchist who is on the autism spectrum.”
The woman who reportedly led the mission to bowdlerize the books of famed author Roald Dahl in order not to offend readers has described herself as a “non-binary, asexual, polyamorous relationship anarchist who is on the autism spectrum.”
The massive woke re-editing of Dahl’s books was largely perpetrated by an English group called Inclusive Minds. Jo Ross-Barrett, a former project manager at Inclusive Minds who headed the project, wrote on LinkedIn in 2022 that she was working on a secretive project involving “delivering a large-scale, comprehensive review of inclusion issues and potential solutions for copyright holders and publishers of one of the most famous classic children’s book collections in the world (specifics under NDA until publication),” National Review reported.
A profile of Barrett on the Inclusive Minds sight described her as “they/them” and a “writer and editor with a passion for championing inclusive content and policies. … Jo is an autistic, non-binary, asexual, polyamorous relationship anarchist. They work with Inclusive Minds to help authors and publishers make their books more authentically representative of marginalized groups, and have provided workshops and talks at A Place at the Table 2020 and the UK Asexuality Conference 2019,” The Daily Mail noted.
Inclusive Minds used “sensitivity readers” and “inclusion ambassadors” to edit children’s stories; the “ambassadors” could be as young as 8 years old. Some “ambassadors” included a trans-identifying poet and a queer, trans-identifying, and intersex person.
As I have noted previously, it is truly stunning that the vast majority of Americans (and the Western world) are being told that they have to change their entire worldview, principles, and morals to accommodate tiny segments of the population. This madness has to stop.
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
So she is a moral authority?
No, but she is a neurotic moron.
No, she is an Authoritarian who is amoral.
She forgot Marxist
.001% weirdos, deviates, and dingbats running the world. Heaven forbid they suffer a micro aggression.
Of course she was. What other type of person would do that? Hasn’t the attention already reversed the decision?
James Bond, on the other hand, has already been edited. Imagine Ian Fleming turning in his grave.
No, it has not been reversed. The fake woke Dahl books will still be published under his name. The only concession is that the publisher will continue to offer the originals rather than replace them completely. It’s not clear how the real Dahls will be marketed (if at all) or how consumers will know they are buying woke fakes rather than the classic children’s literature.
Before they reversed the decision they were not going to print the original version at all. Sounds like a reversal, even if you must nitpick.
Asexual, polyamorous relationship anarchist? The silly self absorbed twit doesn’t even understand the meaning of the words she’s using to describe herself. She’s the last person on earth you’d want to edit any of your material.
No, she is just a progressive who figured out that adding everything she could to her title would tick more boxes and get her more stuff. Look where she is
Fat non-binary, asexual, polyamorous relationship anarchist.
Uh! My kid’s friends might describe her as “fugly”
I looked up a picture of her. While not beautiful, to me, she seemed an average person which just shows what kind of crazy can be lurking below the surface. I went out with a pretty good looking lady for a few months. First talking to her she was nice, etc. After a month I found out how unhinged she actually was. You can’t hide it for long
“So, you’re a non-binary, asexual, polyamorous relationship anarchist. In other words, you’re one f**ed up crazy b*tch, right?”
These kinds of women are the worst abusers of children they raise. These kinds of neurotic narcissists become guity of Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy: either they poison their kids, or they go the latest way with gender b.s.
Confirming what corporate America’s values are.
Penguin Random House has duel HQ’s. NYC and London however the company is owned by a German firm, Bertelsmann, based in Germany.
In other words she is a mentally disturbed person no whose job description is revisionism as applied to classical children’s works
Freak covers it all.
a liberal with a cause and progressive platform
I can only imagine what she looks like.
binary sex: male and female
binary gender (i.e. sex-correlated attributes): masculine and feminine, respectively
anarchist is far-right. the left-right nexus is leftist.
The Ian Fleming, James Bond novels are similarly being rewritten based on input from sensitivity readers. All racist, misogynistic, unduly violent and xenophobic passages will be eliminated. This has the advantage of allowing the entire series to be combined in one slim pamphlet.
There’s an interesting tie-in here. Roald Dahl wrote the screenplay for the third James Bond movie, “You Only Live Twice”.
Whoops. My bad. YOLT was the 5th Bond movie. From Russia With Love, Goldfinger & Thunderball all came out back to back to back.
“non-binary, asexual, polyamorous relationship anarchist who is on the autism spectrum”
In other words, a raving lunatic.
These “people” need to be locked up in a rubber room.
The incoherence is strong with this one. Not to go all Brandolini’s law here, but…
You can’t be non-binary and asexual, nor asexual and polyamorous. That’s all just generally horny, can’t decide and lacking follow-through. And a “relationship anarchist” that specific is a special kind of crazy, that “on the spectrum” doesn’t begin to cover. That this is on “Inclusive Minds” is just gravy.
Is Doyle doing another parody, now that everybody knows about Titania?
Otherwise, this isn’t even a great job. Spewing word bursts that feel good to say. If you’re gonna do that, I have some other words to suggest that feel even better
Of course these bleaters are impressed with ChatGPS — it does exactly what they do, but faster.
