In the midst of the constant flood of national and international news, you may have missed this story. There is a problem with Disneyland’s new Snow White ride. A big problem. A really big problem.
As reported on the SF Gate website:
“The new grand finale of Snow White’s Enchanted Wish is the moment when the Prince finds Snow White asleep under the Evil Queen’s spell and gives her ‘true love’s kiss’ to release her from the enchantment. A kiss he gives to her without her consent, while she’s asleep, which cannot possibly be true love if only one person knows it’s happening.”
The prince, previously a hero in the story, is now Harvey Weinstein made for children. He is now Bill Cosby at his worst, yet celebrated rather than condemned.
He is an example of an abusive sexual predator, taking advantage of his drugged female victim. Disney must be stopped!
As the article continues:
“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?”
This is wokeness on steroids. This is the #MeToo movement (with all the genuine good it has done) run amuck.
As Piers Morgan rightly reacted:
“The lunatic woke brigade, seemingly oblivious to what’s happening in the real world, have spent the past 15 months continuing to bleat about any ‘micro-aggression’ that upsets them,
“And as we know, that means pretty much everything – from chess being ‘racist’ (white always starts) to fat-free frozen yoghurt triggering eating disorder distress …
“Today though, we’ve reached the absolute nadir of mind-numbingly stupid wokery, an achievement for which the bar is staggeringly low.
“Extreme illiberal liberals have sparked a furore which even by their standards is so absurd, so pathetic, so indescribably dumb that I can barely believe it’s real.”
But it is real, and that’s the thing. And some people are really upset.
Do all of us, as people of conscience, deplore and flatly condemn any person forcing themselves on another person sexually? Absolutely.
Do we utterly and flatly denounce the practice of a man drugging a woman so as to rape her? Of course. That is criminal behavior that should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
Do we agree that, to this moment, women in particular are the objects of unwanted sexual advances of men? Yes, without question.
But what in the world does this have to do with Snow White who is rescued from an evil death spell by the prince’s loving kiss?
We might as well ban CPR (let alone feature it in a movie scene), since the person being resuscitated had not given consent immediately prior to being revived, yet there is, after all, mouth to mouth contact.
What makes the current situation even more ridiculous is that, as Morgan noted, “the Prince learns of Snow White’s fate and visits what he believes to be her dead body. And he gently kisses her, believing he is saying a final farewell to his beloved.”
In other words, this was not a sexual kiss, let alone an unwanted sexual advance. This was the prince, who truly loved Snow White, kissing her lifeless body goodbye. Yet, because only true love could break the evil spell, the kiss brought her back to life.
To quote Morgan again: “The kiss breaks the spell and awakens her from her trance, and to the delight of the [seven] dwarves, they depart to live happily ever after in his castle.”
But, in order to reach out to the woke community which has raised its voice in protest, I offer this proposal (sarcasm alert): I urge parents to teach their sons, that they should never, ever, force themselves on a girl or woman or coerce or pressure them in any way to engage in any sexual act, however small, against their will. (No sarcasm so far. I mean every word of this.)
The only exception would be: 1) your son is a prince; 2) he is in love with an orphaned princess whose evil stepmother is a queen, jealous of her beauty; 3) the queen gets that princess to eat a poisoned apple that puts her in a death sleep, one from which she can only awaken if kissed by her true love (your son, the prince); 4) and, finally, seven dwarfs then find the sleeping princess (presumed dead) but, rather than bury her, they put her in a glass coffin.
In that case, your son is allowed to gently kiss his beloved, princess, after which the two of them, along with the seven dwarfs, can live happily ever after.

This is wokeness on steroids. This is the #MeToo movement run amuck.
So tell me WHY anyone would give ANY credibility to the wokeness or #MeToo nsanity.
I do not believe in leprechauns, so am I supposed to get mad and go into a fit of rage everytime I see a box of “Lucky Charms” with a leprechaun on the box.
Why would I care what upsets these self-righteous insane Fools?………… I Don’t care!
EVERYONE should care, as the more of us who IGNORE IT< the more they push it everywhere that they can..
WE MUST NOT ignore it. WE MUST speak the hell out and STOP IT.
I assume the good ‘woke’ prince would just let Snow White lie in her glass coffin until she really does die and turns into a mummy! That would be the chivalous thing to do in the present time since life is not really considered important to the progressive left and the cult of planned Parenthood.
Just rename the story “Snow Black”, and all will be well.
So, is anybody else believing me when I say there is a stupidity virus infecting a large segment of the human population? This is so ignorant as to make ignorance appear as intelligence.
The government has released accumulated evidence of the existence of UFO’s.. Ever wonder why the beings manning these crafts never stop here and explore?
CAUSE they found no intelligent life on this planet!
The “woke” clowns can go to a “safe space” that is a cesspool of toxic waste. These liberal communists cannot even let kids be kids. Let kids enjoy their childhoods. What a disgrace.
Disney needs to ignore the activists. I doubt the vocal minority who opposes this has any plans to visit Disneyland.
WITH all the other WOKEISH nonsense Disney has been shoving in our faces over the past 7+ years, i can’t see why SANE PARENTS keep taking their kids to this cesspool of liberalism..
Whoever said evil ever makes any sense? We know it isn’t about making sense, it’s only about creating chaos and confusion… Which the whole Democratic Party is fantastic at!
These people love to ruin everything! Bottom line is that Snow White is a fairy tale. Meaning: It’s not real! You idiotic left thinkers. Get over yourselves and get a life.
First they ruined Star wars. Then Star trek, then Terminator, then MIB. ANd now are moving on to Bond.
IF disney hates AMERICA so much i say fine. CLOSE UP YOUR amusement parks and film studios, AND MOVE TO CHINA.. And never come back.
It’s almost impossible to satirize lefties because their actions are stupider than anything any writer could make up. Every time you think they’ve reached the ultimate idiocy, they come up with a worse one. Now they’re busy censoring (Dr. Seuss) and wrecking children’s stories when they’re not corrupting science including biology or committing electoral fraud. Nothing is safe from their grasping and frenetic hands. They are destroyers who are among the most ignorant yet prideful people to have trod the earth, toppling statues, art and traditions of their betters.
we need to boycott Disney Did you see on the news Disney was asking employees to fill out white privilege checklist and saying America was founded in racism. what a crock.
Which makes you wonder, WHAT DUMBA&&, white person, WILLINGLY GETS A job at disney!
disney died years ago imho.
THe only Disney movies i still even own/watch, are the two National Treasures (with nick cage), his Sorcerer’s apprentice, Tron legacy, Three musketeers (with charlie sheen and kiefer), herbie fully loaded and the mighty duck trilogy.
