SNOWFLAKES BAN ET FOR ‘BLA­TANT TRANSPHOBIA’

The re­al­ity of shag­ging grannies and cars

Sunday Sport - - NEWS -

FOR gen­er­a­tions, watch­ing ET: The Ex­tra Ter­res­trial has been a rite of pas­sage.

Steven Spiel­berg’s clas­sic 1980s film has ev­ery­thing you could want from a movie from laugh­ter, sad­ness, joy and sheer ela­tion.

But now it seems that to­day’s sen­si­tive mil­len­ni­als find the Os­car- win­ning flick far too much for their eas­ily- of­fended sen­si­bil­i­ties.

And at the Uni­ver­sity of West Lancashire the Film So­ci­ety has banned it from ever be­ing shown on cam­pus – and are cam­paign­ing for the flick to be to­tally cen­sored around the world.

Be­cause they reckon the scene where the alien from another planet dresses up in women’s clothes is of­fen­sive to the trans com­mu­nity.

Film So­ci­ety sec­re­tary Rhys Mon­tague- Smith ex­plained: “We here at the Uni­ver­sity of West Lancashire Film So­ci­ety were out­raged when one of our mem­bers sug­gested ET for our Filma­palooza fes­ti­val. In fact, we felt phys­i­cally sick.

“We prob­a­bly have a huge trans com­mu­nity here and shud­der to think of how much they might be of­fended by this film. It is not funny to dress an alien in women’s clothes solely for a laugh.

“Maybe if the alien in ques­tion was ad­dress­ing his gen­der dys­mor­phia and the scene was treated more sen­si­tively, we could sanc­tion it.

“But to use a cis male alien in drag for laughs is wrong, which is why we have banned it from the uni­ver­sity and plan to make sure it is never broad­cast on telly again.”

Women’s Stud­ies un­der­grad­u­ate Rhys added they have al­ready banned Toot­sie, Mrs Doubt­fire and Some Like It Hot.

But he ad­mits they have al­lowed screen­ings of The Rocky Hor­ror Pic­ture Show be­cause: “The gays like it, don’t they?” DRESS­ING DOWN: ET has been banned by mil­l­len­ni­als BRAND new re­al­ity se­ries

is set to doc­u­ment ADULT BA­BIES, VAM­PIRES and a man who SHAGS HIS CAR.

A shock­ing trailer showed a man who bonks his white Volk­swa­gen Beetle called Vanilla who is seen kiss­ing the car and say­ing: “I love you, Vanilla.”

The eight- episode sea­son also fea­tures swingers, sis­ter wives, love slaves and fol­lows a fella called Dave who has spent thou­sands on sex dolls de­spite hav­ing a real- life fi­ancée.

Their episode fo­cuses on Dave’s mam­moth col­lec­tion and fol­lows his fi­ancée as she de­cides to in­vest in her own male sex doll.

View­ers will also get to meet Kyle, a 31- year- old with a fetish for grand­moth­ers, and his 91- year- old girl­friend Marg.

But Kyle isn’t even a one- granny man – he also shags a 68- year- old named An­nie.

Other cou­ples in the se­ries in­clude a pair that have an adult baby fetish as well as real- life vam­pires who were filmed suck­ing the blood out of their play­mate’s pricked fin­ger­tips.

It’s set to air on Wetv on Fri­day De­cem­ber 28, at 10pm.
