    Good grief!!!! That's all I have to say.

    According to an editorial by SFGATE, the ride itself is “really good” and “preserves much of the charm” of what originally opened in 1955. The problem, according to the editorial, comes when Prince Charming kisses Snow White “without her consent”.

    “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,”

    He also presumed that she'd want to waken from
    her black magic induced coma. We live in the
    golden age of mock-worthy loopy sensitivities.

    "Good grief, Charlie Brown". They've never heard of unrequited love? Do we need to invoke informed consent when Aunt Bertha kisses a 6-year old boy who does NOT want to be kissed especially by Aunt Bertha? Do we need to restrict who can change a baby and wipe a bottom?

    I'm pretty woke but this is over the line.

    I thought of a solution!
    Snow White signed a living will that authorized
    all appropriate medical/magical treatment for
    resuscitation if she became incapacitated.
    Post the document prominently at her bedside.

    The exact same kind of kiss happens in Sleeping Beauty.
    But Aurora and Philipp were already in love and in a relationship...so I guess the consent was implicit...

    I'm not so versed in the American bastardizations of good old European fairy tales. Isn't the awakening kiss from Sleeping Beauty? (Who is 116 at that time) In the original Snow White the dwarfs agree to transport Snow White to the prince's castle in a glass coffin but one of dwarfs stumbles which makes her spit out the bite from the apple that poisoned her.
    Just go back to the original. Problem solved.
    (Seems the brothers Grimm where more woke in the 19th century than Disney is in the 21st.)

    What fairy tales aren't?
    And if they weren't a bit creepy, they'd be pure maudlin.

    So... the ride itself isn't being changed. The ride hasn't even been condemned.

    All that's happened is that one writer wrote one editorial that largely praised the ride, but criticized one aspect of it.

    Is your worldview really so fragile that you see this as a threat?

    I think its time for all the sensitive and offended people to rein it in. Would that include you?

    It seems that some are embarrassed by the antics of more
    extreme SJWs. So it's necessary harsh you for posting it.
    Little do they know that this enhances the entertainment.

    Yes it does. I'm not sure if its embarrassment or that they support it but won"t admit it so they get harsh instead lol

    I think our fellows are woke enuf to not
    support such an over-sensitive reaction
    to an old fairy tale.

    And don't get me started on the Princess and the Frog...

    The poor frog never consented to that inter-species sexual assault either! :kissingheart::frogface:
