DISNEYLAND’S popular Snow White ride in California is under fire for its “true love’s kiss” scene, which shows the Prince kissing the sleeping princess.
Critics claim that the cartoon character was being kissed without her consent and have blasted Disneyland for including it in the revamped ride in Anaheim.
Haven’t we already agreed that consent in early Disney movies is a major issue? That teaching kids that kissing, when it hasn’t been established if both parties are willing to engage, is not OK? It’s hard to understand why the Disneyland of 2021 would choose to add a scene with such old fashioned ideas of what a man is allowed to do to a woman, especially given the company’s current emphasis on removing problematic scenes from rides like Jungle Cruise and Splash Mountain. Why not re-imagine an ending in keeping with the spirit of the movie and Snow White’s place in the Disney canon, but that avoids this problem?
Have I mentioned it is no longer possible to parody the left? Yet the author of this babbling buffoonery manages to pile even more stupid on top
Still, with the twinkling lights all around and the gorgeous special effects, that final scene is beautifully executed — as long as you’re watching it as a fairy tale, not a life lesson
That is the point, it IS a FREAKING FAIRY TALE. How dumb can this woman be? Spoiler Alert, not as dumb as Japanese professor Kazue Muta of Osaka University, who likened the Prince’s kiss to sexual assault.
Muta tweeted: “When you think rationally about ‘Snow White’ and ‘Sleeping Beauty,’ that tell of a ‘princess being woken up by the kiss of a prince,’ they are describing sexual assault on an unconscious person.”
These miscreants are literally sucking the fun out of everything
