Three Little Pigs ‘too offensive’
By Sean Coughlan
BBC News, education
A story based on the Three Little Pigs fairy tale has been turned down by a government agency’s awards panel as the subject matter could offend Muslims.
The digital book, re-telling the classic story, was rejected by judges who warned that “the use of pigs raises cultural issues”.
Now, since “having a future time orientation” is also racist, I guess that makes my story “The 3 Austrian Pigs And Their Different Rates of Time Preference” just 2 scoops of bigotry and a side of bacon.
