Forums - Politics Discussion - Mom wants 'sexist' fairy tale banned

Inspired by the #metoo stuff, an English mom wants the story of Sleeping Beauty to be banned from young children, or to be changed to a more modern and appropriate version. In the fairy tale, a prince kisses sleeping beauty to wake her up, but he does this without asking her permission.

I wonder how she will react if she finds out that the prince actually raped Sleeping Beauty in the original version.

 

Telegraph also found some things in other fairy tales that could be considered sexist:

Because the Dwarfs totally didn't do stuff to Snow White while she was sleeping.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Oh for gods sake. Lock her away and swallow the key.
I hate when people have a personal issue with non issues and try to reflect it on everyone else.

I read this. This is the stupidest thing I've ever heard. I guess we should also ban CPR, which is basically what the prince in Sleeping Beauty did anyway.



She doesn't want it banned, she says this right here:

“I don’t think taking Sleeping Beauty books out of circulation completely would be right. I actually think it would be a great resource for older children, you could have a conversation around it, you could talk about consent, and how the Princess might feel,” Ms Hall said.

How can you ask permission when someone is in an eternal sleep.

It's literally the same with CPR and doing mouth to mouth. You would do it to save that persons life.

That mother is retarded.




feminism has now progressed to the point where its going to start actively hurting women... especially attractive women who profit from their beauty in fields like modelling and porn... its kind of funny in an ironic way

 

i'd also like to mention that women regard men as repulsive when they ask for kisses... just throwing that out there



Well, I actually think that the tale is sexist.



If you're the kind of person who cannot except that times were different and there is context to everything that came before you then you're going to have a bad time.

Umm, I'm going to need some proof of that. Let's ask the women here to find out.
