If you’re like me, you find yourself reading things that soft wokesters say that make you question the fate of the species. “How is it possible that we share the same planet with these people?” we often ask. “Why is God so cruel!”
If 2021 had a mantra it would be: “Welcome to 2021, where everything is stupid.”
These thoughts inspired a new weekly segment here at FreedomWire called “The Dumbest Thing I Heard This Week”…and boy oh boy, do the snowflakes give me a lot of material to work with.
It is a difficult task to sift through all the mind-numbingly stupid stuff they say and narrow their ridiculousness down to just one winner.
But, I do this so you, dear reader, don’t have to subject yourself to such a cruel research project. I am sacrificing my intelligence for the cause because I will certainly become dumber for having read their quotes.
So, without further a due, here is this week’s dumbest thing I heard.
A Fairytale Ending…Without Consent
This week’s winner comes to us from writers on a site created by the San Francisco Chronicle.
Given San Francisco’s reputation for wokeness, this should come as no surprise.
Apparently, the climax of the Disney classic “Snow White,” where the charming prince kisses Snow White and saves her from death with the power of “true love’s kiss,” is now completely unacceptable because the prince didn’t ask Snow White for permission before he kissed her. This, of course, is an odd claim, given that she was dead at the time! (I for one am more worried about a prince who kisses corpses, but apparently, the woke mob doesn’t share my concerns.)
That is a thing that an actual person wrote… I am not kidding.
Writing for SFGATE, Julie Tremaine and Katie Dowd, reviewed the latest update to the Snow White ride at Disneyland. And here was their takeaway from the family ride experience:
“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.
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?”
Reimagine a new ending to Snow White? The ending is what makes the story the classic that it is. Walt Disney must be rolling over in his grave right now at what the snowflakes are doing to his company.
Was the Prince supposed to sign a consensual agreement with Snow White earlier in the film in case she ate a poisoned apple and needed to be brought back to life?!?
Because clearly eating poisoned fruit from a witch is a genuine hazard. There really should be poisoned fruit life insurance for such an event.
I told you would feel dumber for having read this. You can’t say I didn’t warn you.
Like I said: Welcome to 2021, where everything is stupid.
And that was the dumbest thing I heard this week…but I’m sure something even dumber isn’t too far behind.
