We live in a very strange time when counterintuitive thinking is considered the height of enlightenment. According to mainstream culture, men and women are interchangeable despite there being absolutely no scientific data to back that up. Socialism and communism are good despite a myriad of examples of these systems failing the societies that adopted them.

We even have a growing number of leftists who believe that parents have no business deciding how their children should be raised and that it should be left up to the state (i.e. them) instead.

One of the more asinine ideas currently being paraded around by the permanently delusional is the idea that being fat and unhealthy is a good thing. Moreover, like every other intersectional lunatic, they believe teaching this to your kid is a moral good. Anything that promotes health, activity, and exercise to kids is wrong and needs to be squashed.

Enter the kid’s television show Bluey.

Bluey increasingly finds itself in hot water for not embracing the whims of the “modern audience.” Unlike other children’s shows, it truly puts a focus on the nuclear family and doesn’t touch modern socio-political issues. This has naturally put a target on the show’s back as the social justice political virus has to infect everything, and there have been some very bizarre attempts to attack the show for one reason or another. I’ve covered one of these attempts before.

Now another attempt has been made to curb the show’s wholesome approach to reality, and this time it was successful in censoring it.

The attack came from the fat acceptance crowd. In an episode called Exercise, Bluey’s dad Bandit weighs himself on a scale and laments his out-of-shape figure, complaining that he wants to get in shape but doesn’t have the time due to both work and taking care of the kids. This leads to encouragement from Bluey and her little sister Bingo to get in shape, leading to Bandit going through exercises while the kids get up to their usual shenanigans.

Naturally, the social justice crowd had to make this about them, and accusations were hurled at the show and its writers about being “fatphobic.”


According to Deadline, the show came under attack for “fat shaming” and generally defying the narratives of the body positivity movement. As a result, the writers were pressured into trimming the show’s beginning so that the relatable moment we’ve all had can’t be seen, saving the feelings of the permanently offended:

Viewers said it promoted toxic messaging about weight. Aussie Girl Margie, a TikTok user who has built a following analyzing Bluey, said: “Apparently, Bluey is totally OK with fat shaming now.”

She added: “The fact they added in the scales and showed both parents being sad and disappointed after seeing the number on the scales, is pretty problematic.”

Pediatric dietitian Dr Kyla Ringrose wrote: “Watching Bandit and Chilli weigh themselves and openly hate on their bodies in front of the kids was really uncomfortable.”

The ABC said: “The recent episode of BlueyExercise, has been republished by the ABC following a decision by the makers of the program. The new version provides families with the opportunity to manage important conversations in their own way.”

“As the home of Bluey, the ABC supports the decision to re-edit the program and we have updated the episode on our platforms. BBC Studios will use this revised version for global distribution and also support this decision.”

For starters, I can’t count the number of times I’ve done what Bandit did myself. Being a new father who spends almost every waking moment either taking care of a kid or working, bad habits tend to creep in that lead to putting on some pounds. Moreover, as I get older, I don’t have the metabolism that I used to. I too have stood in front of the mirror cursing the pudge around my waste.

If you’re reading that and are thinking “I feel you, pal,” then you’re not alone. Nearly every single parent I know has done this at some point, and it’s from this common moment that Bluey’s writers pulled from and created an episode around. Moreover, I love the fact that Bandit began doing something about it while incorporating his children into it. This is Bluey at its best, yet according to the hyper-sensitive and overly egotistical, this is the show at its worst. They equate this all too relatable moment as a personal attack. This kind of thinking isn’t just ridiculously immature, it’s exhausting.

But let’s cut through the nonsense for a moment.

Obesity might be common but commonality doesn’t make things okay. Being overweight leads to a myriad of issues including diabetes and heart issues. The number one killer in America is heart disease usually brought on by an unhealthy lifestyle, addiction to bad foods, and weight issues.

While I hate the overused and misused term “phobic,” a favorite of the social justice crowd, it’s my honest opinion that our society isn’t “fatphobic” enough. This especially applies to our kids. Childhood obesity leads to everything from joint pain and breathing problems to diabetes and liver diseases. Depression is also a common symptom of obesity in children, and all of this only gets worse as they age.

And we’re just not supposed to talk about that? We’re supposed to embrace obesity because some people get offended when their unhealthy lifestyle or weight is called out as a negative? We’re supposed to just pretend a healthier lifestyle isn’t something we should strive for and that expressing negative feelings toward being unhealthy is…unhealthy?

This is abject lunacy and very dangerous.

Once again, Bluey did nothing wrong. In fact, it did something relatable, good, and right. I’m incredibly disappointed that the show trimmed that part out of the episode (I’m convinced they were strongarmed into it by the studios) and hope that somewhere it can be released in its entirety, along with several other banned episodes that mainstream studios thought were too much.

It’s important to support shows like Bluey and call out these breaches in common sense if we want good examples for both our children and society.
