Snowflake parents changing 'politically incorrect' fairytales

Post Neon Knight on Sun 13 May - 22:59

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5717265/UK-parents-change-fairytale-endings-politically-incorrect-Little-Red-Riding-Hood-Gingerbread-Man.html Quoting:

* A quarter of parents change traditional endings because they are 'inappropriate'
* 36 per cent polled don't like how Pied Piper tricks children into following him
* 25 per cent asked aren't keen on Ugly Duckling over fears of 'body shaming'
* Nearly a quarter don't like Cinderella because of female domestic stereotypes

Snowflake parents across Britain are changing the endings of classic fairytales when they read them to their children - because they're 'politically incorrect'. A study revealed a quarter of parents have admitted to changing traditional endings to make them more 'appropriate'. Around 16 per cent confessed they avoid certain stories altogether over fears they are too scary or could send youngsters the wrong message.

Many think it is 'unfair' that the Gingerbread Man gets eaten by a fox, while others fear The Ugly Ducking could bring about insecurities and body shaming. Little Red Riding Hood is the story changed by parents most often, with alternative endings seeing the central character making friends with the wolf instead of helping to kill him. Little Red Riding Hood is the story parents are most likely to change, followed closely by The Three Little Pigs and The Gingerbread Man.

The survey of 2,000 parents revealed over a third think it is 'cruel' that the Gingerbread Man is eaten by a fox. Some 36 per cent are concerned by how the Pied Piper of Hamlin tricks children into following him. Almost one in four think it is inappropriate to tell children the story of Cinderella, who was forced to do all of the cleaning and household chores. While more than a quarter feel the same about Robin Hood, a man who stole from others. One quarter of parents also avoid reading the Ugly Duckling as they worry it could encourage body-shaming and discrimination. A third dislike Hansel and Gretel because the children are abandoned in the forest, while one in four think Sleeping Beauty is inappropriate as she was kissed without her consent. Even Pinocchio leaves 27 per cent of parents worrying as the story tells the tale of a boy who runs away from home and lies to people.

Liam Howley, marketing director at musicMagpie, which commissioned the research, said: 'Some of these stories have been around for generations - many would have been read to mums and dads when they were children. But times have changed and there are many elements to these classic tales which for some don't really fit into society as they once did. Not only that, but when you think about the storylines, some can be considered very scary for little children.'

This has been going on forever. Part of the reason for these tales, which usually don't even involve magic, was to teach lessons. This means that the endings could be harsh and some of the imagery was simplistic. The reason good characters tend to be pretty is the same reason attractive people are used to sell soap: people want to be attractive. Make the bad sister ugly, and it makes the actions uglier by default. It's just that people nowadays are too sensitive. We have it easy, and this is the result.

This is the sad reality that society has been reduced to this due to the toxic, overbearing influences of Neo-Liberal extremism via political-correctness and double standards. These tales simply used anecdotal stories to reinforce positive, moral undertones to kids for their own self benefit. Whereas the corrupting influences of political correctness flared this hypersensitivity in newer generations to irrational levels. They have a good place in society to teach kids, but generations today are merely too brainwashed and sheeple-minded to formulate their own beliefs due to the corrupting influences of the media and wrong parenting choices that reinforces this to drag on.

'The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piercing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.
