Relatable with Allie Beth Stuckey: Today we’re talking about beloved children’s author Roald Dahl, author of books such as “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” and “Matilda,” who was in the news after Puffin, the publisher of his books, hired sensitivity readers to make his writings “less offensive.” This, in their eyes, means removing references to women and men (making the language “gender-neutral”) and removing the word “fat” (but keeping the word “enormous”) and “ugly” (but keeping the word “beastly”). Meanwhile, the French publisher makes no plans to change the language, claiming it’s fine as is. We talk about the irony of the Left censoring beloved children’s books, yet pushing pornographic content to kids in schools. Then, we discuss beauty guru and YouTuber Jeffree Star, who made headlines when he claimed on a podcast that “they/them” pronouns are ridiculous (despite himself being an “LGBTQ icon”) and Don Lemon’s claims on air at CNN that Nikki Haley, who is running for president in 2024, is “past her prime.”
