Disneyland's new Snow White ride criticized for including Prince Charming's 'non-consensual' kiss


The Snow White ride at Disneyland has received some controversy for depicting the scene where Prince Charming wakes up Snow White with a kiss.

Theme park reviewers Katie Dowd and Julie Tremaine addressed the issue in an article on SFGate, writing that the kiss is one "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. 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 okay?"

So in conclusion : sleep > men.
Cue some FOX talking head ranting about how the libs are trying to "cancel" Snow White.

Also, these stories are derived from folklore that is more than 2-3 hundred years old. There's a bunch of fucked up shit and bad behavior in those tales.

Hahahaha. Leave ha death, then! Sorry, luvs, I'll go bang your stepmummy then.

Llcfvvh this whole skit was in my mind while reading the post!
Flashbacks to hundreds of Bleach discords
Orihime didn't even go through with that lmao
Being the child of a teen mom with undiagnosed adhd in the 80s meant I was often at the mercy of my mom’s weird ass ideas like the time she made me act out Snow White when I was 3. She was the narrator and did the voices for all the other characters who were played by my stuffed animals and baby dolls. The highlights were:

-the huntsman was played by my only boy babydoll who brought the queen “snow white’s heart” in a pencil box while he has a plastic knife taped to his fist. The heart was also a giant red lego

-you can see her kind of kick my leg when I eat the poison apple because I won’t stop chewing lol You can also see where she pauses recording to make me spit it out so I don’t choke hah

-the queen was played by a doll that had eyes that would open and close and the left eye got stuck during a magic mirror scene so she acted out the queen throwing a fit so she could slam the doll on the ground until the eye came unstuck.

Honestly, it’s kind of impressive lol I still haven’t decided if I’m thankful there was no social media at the time or kind of sad because at least she could have made some money from all the weird shit she’s record. Like the frog wedding..:::
Lmao this post is everything

But yeah the only good Snow White ride is the rollercoaster in Magic Kingdom in Orlando. They did a really cool job with the mines. We don't need to see the kiss because it's both boring and bad.

It is important to know when you've truly jumped off the cliff, ONTD.

Yes, I love it, more Disney wank please. Let's debate about consent issues from a cartoon made close to 100 years ago with the backdrop of "Disney is capitalist hell/let people enjoy things/going to theme parks is cringe/if you shop at amazon you are no longer allowed to criticize disney" on a website that realistically should have shut down about 7 years ago

these are truly the dying days of Rome
They truly are. I give up.
forgot to add "/Marvel movies are exempt let me pretend that they aren't actually disney"
Right, not ONTD pretending like 1/3 to half of them aren’t Disney adults if you factor in marvel and Star Wars lol
These older Disney movies did not age well.
disney wank is my favorite wank
Teach your kids about consent, just not like this. Also, didn't they think she was dead?
NOBODY WAS COMPLAINING!!!
Fox News wrote a fake article and Twitter picked up on it!
People need to look at their sources before they start commenting and retweeting nonsense
