Grease is the word...

I got chills, they're multiplying...
"I got chills... they're multiplying..."
Yesterday, my wife and I enjoyed brunch and a play -- Grease -- at Chemainus' excellent dinner theatre.

In these days of inclusiveness and movements such as #MeToo we were struck at how some of the songs lyrics and situations would not be considered acceptable today.

Fat shaming, slut shaming, overcoming female resistance to sexual advances... it's all there. It's become a trend for millenials to look back and retroactively condemn movements and pop culture of the past, based on current attitudes. How long before this play is called out and condemned for its "sins"?
