Cinderella's Dialing 911

This has to be a joke -- some British researcher is claiming that little girls who enjoy classic fairy tales "are at greater risk of becoming victims of violent relationships in later life." Supposedly women who grow up reading fairy tales are supposed to be more "submissive" as adults; that, in turn, is supposed to correlate with domestic abuse.

Alert Disney -- and all those little girls running around in Belle, Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty costumes!

Please don't doubt that there's a feminist agenda behind this effort. By replacing classic fairy tales featuring female heroines/princesses, feminists apparently think they can prevent little girls from being socialized as little girls -- a good thing, in their view.

Won't they ever learn? They certainly don't ever give up . . .

Not a joke sadly, well not a funny one anyway, another shot in the culture war.

If all these nutty theories had any validity, no one in the last five generations would have grown up sane.

I recall reading a newspaper article recently that insisted by way of unnamed experts, critics, and sources--but, aren't they all?--that all classic fairy tales are, in fact, erotica, and soft core porn, originally intended for adults only.

Anything but let children be children.
