South Park has no issue taking jabs at people with all sorts of political beliefs and this week, it was the radical left’s turn to be mocked. In the third episode of season 22 titled, “The problem with a Poo,” social justice warriors and feminists are a major source of ridicule.
Last season, South Park Elementary School administrators PC Principal and Vice Principal Strong Woman engaged in sexual intercourse and now Strong Woman is pregnant with quintuplets. She wants to raise the children on her own and claims she does not know who the father is instead of admitting the horrible truth – she had a relationship with a co-worker ! While PC Principal is suspicious that the children are his–especially when they come out wearing the exact same sunglasses as him–he refuses to outwardly say so out of fear of offending Vice Principal Strong Woman.
The children themselves end up becoming a representation of social justice warriors in 2018. In addition to their appearance resembling PC Principal, they also cry uncontrollably whenever something politically incorrect is said. In that sense, they’re a stab at a lot of leftist millennials who cannot bear to hear differing opinions. The children of PC Principal and Vice Principal Strong Woman are dubbed “PC babies.”
Ultimately, the PC babies become problematic when Mr. Hankey, the Christmas Poo attempts to bring the Christmas spirit to the town of South Park despite the holiday being eight weeks away. While Mr. Hankey is speaking about the significance of Christmas, his use of gendered pronouns sets the PC babies off–and hilarity ensues.
