You’d think would be a market for a show or movie that is, not anti-social justice, but like satirical/critical of the excesses of the movement. Yet I feel like pretty much all pop culture is either explicitly and unnuanced pro-SJ or just dodges the topic completely.

Life of Brian

Bojack Horseman to a degree

I guess what I’m thinking of is a work where criticism of SJ is a major theme, in the way that there are a lot of explicitly feminist and SJ shows out there, and not just a side plot or joke like BoJack.

I guess the main characters would have to be academics, thinkpiece writers, political activists…?

dear white people is KIND of like that? it’s kind of critical of SJ or the excesses of it a bit. the main character is super woke and has a radio show called dear white people but it does do some stuff showing where she goes wrong. But it’s still overall very pro-SJ and not sure if it counts.

I think it’s difficult to go anti-woke as you either end up pointing out the flaws in the supposedly woke, in which case you’re just trying to be more woke, or you go full Ben Garrison and spend your time trying to own the libs for not condemning sodomites or whatever.

You could go for something full on schmaltzy, like a plane full of woke activists (whactivists?) crash lands in a very unwoke place and the wokels and the yokels must come to terms with each other and recognise that despite the cultural differences they share a common humanity, etc.

“Woke” is not synonymous with “good person.”
