Is there anything woke lefties can’t ruin? From TV shows to movies, the’ve distorted all media to fit their radical agenda. Now they’ve come for religious figures. 

According to ShakespeareGlobe, Joan Of Arc is to be reimagined as a gender-confused female with they/them pronouns. 

Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London is proud to present the new woke piece of garbage play, I,Joan, which views the warrior saint through the funhouse perspective of modern gender silliness. “We are not the first to present Joan in this way, and we will not be the last. Regarding the use of pronouns, ‘they’ to refer to a singular person has been traced by the Oxford English Dictionary to as early as 1375, years before Joan was even born,” the Globe Artistic Director Michelle Terry writes. “Regardless, theatres do not deal with ‘historical reality’. Theatres produce plays, and in plays, anything can be possible.” At least she admits using they/them pronouns is not living in “historical reality.” 

The globe defends the woke deconstruction of Joan as what Shakespeare would have wanted. “He wanted to play. Play with identity, power, with the idea of pleasure, and with all sides of an argument,” the globe continues. “Shakespeare was not afraid to ask difficult questions as he imagined the lives of 1,223 characters; he represented an extraordinary range of diverse perspectives and identities, and we are all still enjoying his work over 400 years later.” What is thou smoking?

Terry defends the woke appropriation of Joan by claiming it's just another historical interpretation. “History has provided countless and wonderful examples of Joan portrayed as a woman,” the website reads. “This production is simply offering the possibility of another point of view. That is the role of theatre: to simply ask the question ‘imagine if?’” Imagine if these lunatics weren’t so preoccupied with turning nature and morality on their heads.

But Shakespeare’s Globe’s promotes leftist values. “We are committed to becoming an inclusive and diverse organisation, and making necessary change is at the heart of our strategic aims for the organisation. This includes becoming pro-trans, anti-racist, and taking positive, conscious, and intentional action against any form of prejudice present in our culture,” the website reads. “We aim to create a culture and environment in which everyone’s experience at Shakespeare’s Globe is equal, inclusive, and equitable.” Does the website mention that they’re proud to be anti-Catholic? 

Shakespeare’s Globe perverted a Catholic saint and molded her into a woke monstrosity. Get woke, please go broke.
