According to the description on Disneyland’s website, guests are allowed to ride in a wooden wagon to join Snow White’s journey: Passing the house of the seven dwarfs, visiting the queen’s dark room…
A California newspaper has been urging the theme park to get rid of the re-enactment of the real kiss – one of the most famous scenes from one of Disneyland’s iconic movies.
The scene where the prince kissed Snow White was heavily criticized.
In an article published at SF Gate, two of the editors there suggested that the final part of the Snow White Enchanted Wish trip at Disneyland, when the prince kisses Snow White to wake her up from his evil spell queen, should be removed from the epilogue.
They argued that because Snow White was unconscious she couldn’t agree to be kissed, and that it couldn’t be true love if only one person knew it was happening. This is a serious mistake, this scene can teach children that kissing without consent is completely normal.
Need a decent debate
Previously, this issue was shared on her Twitter by a female professor Kazue Muta of Osaka University – an expert in sociology, history and gender theory. It was an article accusing the prince of sexually harassing Snow White in the fairy tale of the same name.
Everyone imagine a beautiful girl lying asleep in a hospital, the son of an illustrious politician passing by was captivated by her beauty. The young man came to her side and placed a kiss on her lips. This is an act of sexual harassment towards someone who is in a state of unconsciousness.
Professor Kazue Muta
Professor Kazue Muta claims fairy tales “glorify sexual violence” in which princes kiss princesses without consent.
Many people oppose this view because it is too lame to apply the moral laws of modern people to fairy tales, but Professor Kazue Muta’s message is also worth pondering. It also makes the students have a close look and discuss this behavior together.
Sarah Hall, member of Northumberland Park, North Shields, believes that some fairy tales promote inappropriate sexual messages for young children.
She posted a picture from the book Sleeping Beauty with the message: “What does the book tell you, while we still see stories like this in schools, we will never profound change in attitudes towards sexual behaviour”, the mother-of-two told MailOnline: ”In today’s society it’s not appropriate – my son is only six years old, he’s receptive. everything it sees, and I can’t turn it into a constructive conversation.
Sarah Hall believes that fairy tales convey sexual messages inappropriate for young children.
However, despite her strong opinion on fairy tales, Sarah Hall does not think that such fairy tales should be completely removed from the bookshelf. ”I don’t think it’s entirely right to take Sleeping Beauty out of circulation. I really think it’s a great resource for the older kids, they can talk about the story, can talk about consent, and how the princess feels… But I see worried about young children, I really welcome a satisfactory debate as to whether this is the appropriate detail,” Sarah Hall concluded.
The kiss that saved Snow White’s life
Contrary to popular opinion, Fox News host Todd Piro recently expressed outrage at criticism of the kiss between the two cartoon characters.
Todd Piro is outraged by criticism of the kiss between the two cartoon characters.
Piro said: ”If you look at the exact picture of Snow White, she was poisoned leading to unconsciousness and that kiss saved her life. Similarly, if you were in an accident and someone needed to perform CPR on you, would you be upset about the action? No! You will have no choice in this situation. I’m not saying sexual harassment is a positive thing, I also have a daughter, I absolutely don’t want that to happen, but let’s be sober. This is a cartoon, a legend from many years ago. It’s not something we all fear as fathers of children.”
