Can’t make it up: Washington Post frets that Medieval Times ‘still stuck in the Dark Ages’

It’s a head-scratcher all right: how do you put on an equestrian pageant set in Medieval times and still conform to modern-day views on #MeToo and gender fluidity?

It’s the kind of thing that only a Washington Post writer would attempt to tackle.

OK, what concessions is Medieval Times making to appeal to a more woke audience?

History is being made at the same time it’s being reenacted at Medieval Times. It’s the first time a female ruler has presided over the equestrian jousting dinner theater experience in its nearly 35-year history in America. Gender equality and the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements are still making progress in politics and the C-suite, but at least here, in this version of 11th-century Spain, cultural forces have unseated a long-ruling monarch.

Are they going to change the name to Woke Times?
