[Ed. – Finally, a fairy tell Kristen Bell can read to her young daughters without disclaimers.]
Amnesty International is jumping on the anti-Disney bandwagon — like celebrities Kristen Bell and Keira Knightley — calling out “fairy tales” for anti-feminist scenarios, where damsels in distress under an evil spell need the help of dashing princes to regain consciousness.
But the nongovernmental organization went way beyond merely criticizing Disney’s heroines. They created their own “fractured fairy tale” in which a prince sexually assaults a sleeping princess, first kissing her and then sliding his hand up her leg, molesting her as she sleeps — a sort-of parody of “Sleeping Beauty” or “Snow White” that comes off less instructive and more, well, creepy.
It’s one cartoon fairy tale that is most certainly not appropriate for children. Or, maybe, anyone.
After sexually abusing the sleeping princess, “Prince Charming” is confronted by a handful of woodland creatures who explain to him that he has to get consent to kiss, touch, or fondle the princess, even though she’s definitely out cold.
