Kiddy Show ‘Thomas the Tank Engine’ Going Full PC, Will Have ‘Gender-Balanced’ Characters

Nothing is safe from the left. This time liberals are re-writing the long-time favorite kiddy show Thomas The Tank Engine into a “multicultural and gender-balanced” extravaganza.

A new trailer for the re-launch of the once wholesome kiddy show proves that Thomas will be all about “inclusive and gender-balancing” this time around.

The show’s developers say they are trying to move away from the British roots of the show and aim towards a different audience.

This is what liberals do. They take successful things and begin flooding them with their left-wing agenda. Eventually they ruin what ever it is they infested with their left-wing ideas and when that happens they blame everyone else for being racists, homophobes, or woman haters.

Indeed, the show runners specifically noted that this is what they are doing.

As Daily Wire reported:

According to The Independent, Thomas’s “Stem Team” — the core group of anthropomorphic railroad cars that make up the show’s cast — will now be “gender balanced,” with three “male” trains and three “female” trains taking center stage, rather than the male-heavy team that held down Sir Toppem Hat’s rail yard in the original series.

For now, the trains will adhere to a decidedly regressive gender binary, but the commitment to changing Thomas for the times is long term.

“The new female characters include Isla, an Australian flying doctor; Hong-mei, a number 1 blue tank engine from China; and Churubala, a female railway controller from India,” The Independent reports. “The Steam Team is now gender-balanced, with three male and three female characters: Percy, James, Gordon, Emily and new members Nia and Rebecca, as well as Thomas.”

The team behind “Thomas” hopes that’ll boost the show among female viewers, and satisfy viewers across the world.

“The changes and new additions of characters and geographies will make the show more entertaining, inclusive and global – whilst ensuring all the favourite characters and storylines that fans around the world love remain at the heart of the action,” McCue added.

Of course, just adding a few female characters won’t be the end of the campaign to PC Thomas. You know darn well that they will keep pushing the envelope on liberalism. It won’t be long before there are gay trains, transgender trains, pedophile trains… the left will continue until it gets what it wants.

You know this is true.
