I've posted this here, with a prefix, in case people want to vent their moral outrage about anything from RDXI (I can think of at least one ethical controversy from that series!). This was inspired by @Nikki the Great's post here. The question is: have you ever had a moral problem with a moment in Red Dwarf? What was it? Obviously, villains will do immoral things - I don't think it was very nice to wipe people from history, for instance - and Cat has been amoral on occasion. But you might object to something the heroes did, or the way the writers handled something. This is an odd thread for me to start because I'm struggling to think of one. But I saw Nikki's post in the other thread and thought it would be a good discussion. Actually, here's one: I don't like Arlene Rimmer's relish when she says "I hope you get pregnant, you cheap little tart." It's a pretty horrible sentiment. I guess you could argue that it holds up a mirror to sexism, but it feels like there's too much laughter at Lister's predicament - "ha ha ha, maybe he is, what larks" - for that to be the focus of the scene. Rimmer's crowing is possibly in-character, but pulls the emphasis back towards unpleasantness, IMO.
