Mars has redesigned the M&M characters to be more woke. RIP Sexy Green M&M

https://jezebel.com/rip-thotty-green-m-m-lady-1848393424


In what feels to be a perfectly American consolation prize for the fact that Congress has failed to pass voting rights legislation, Mars has redesigned the M&M’s characters for a “more dynamic, progressive world,” according to CBS News. So now, in addition to losing suffrage, we will also be losing our favorite bimbo icon: the hot green lady M&M.

It’s nearly impossible to imagine our sexy candy-coated sister floating adrift without her thot energy. It feels as though the green M&M, with her fake lashes and hoe heels, wanted just one thing in this world and that was to f^ck.


I miss when she had a superiority complex. I miss when she bossed the other imbeciles around because she was more cunning and objectively hot than they could ever be. It seems, in reality, that the other M&Ms were jealous of her pretty privilege and that Mars has punished her for her God-given assets, so I would just like to inquire: What sort of message does that really send? That the girlies can’t be horny? That we can’t wear go-go boots to work? Take away our masc-thot and see what happens. The bimbos will rise, once more, removing every new green M&M from candy wrappers across the world, until the nice, professional version of candy Pam Anderson ceases to exist.


Meanwhile, the lady M&Ms are now getting along to show a “force supporting women” as they throw “shine and not shade” — though we all know the brown M&M is just using girlboss energy as a facade for her own internalized misogyny. Her heels are now kitten heel “professional” length, because she wants to keep up with the boys as they scurry to the conference room.

I have no words... no dog in this fight. But I think it is okay for some woman to be sexy. That does not make them automatically bad feminist icons.

9. they took away Brown M&M's stilettos and gave her shorter heel clogs...

And every character now has "skin tone" to match the color of the candy... blue, green, red...

I'll reserve comment.

4. Why does something like this upset people ?

At the most I can see just not caring and having no interest. But to get angry over it ?

12. are people angry? This essay doesn't really strike me as angry, but

maybe there's fiercer controversy about it in other corners of the world and I just haven't come across it.

5. In my younger days

I remember tales bordering on urban legend status that green M&Ms had an aphrodisiac effect. This predates the cartoon commercials. I’m convinced the ad execs drew on this for inspiration.

7. "But I think it is okay for some woman to be sexy."

An M&M is a piece of candy.

10. I just noticed that all of the M&M with nuts are depicted as male.

Coincidence?
