‘My Body, My Choice’: Feminist Mom Edits 3YO Daughter’s Disney Princess Book.

From The Daily Wire, by Amanda Prestigiacomo. (my comments in italics)”A feminist mother who bragged about editing her three-year-old daughter’s Disney princess book in order to smash archaic gender roles, or something, has predictably been praised by fellow feminists. The lovely edits include rejecting that horrible notion of being kind, promoting abortion, and emasculating Aladdin, along with other silly feel-good feminist nonsense.

“Danielle Lindemann, a sociologist who studies — wait for it — gender roles, decided to crank the anti-gender role awareness “up to a whole new level” after her daughter took a liking to a Disney princess-themed book she received as a gift. (The girl must already be suffering from internalized misogyny.) Whatever Lindemann’s contention is with Disney princesses, the pages of the book she publicly edited did not promote the idea to “little girls that their worth lies in looking nice and hooking up with the right guy.” Not even close, actually.

“For example, the feminist mother took issue with the book suggesting princesses be “kind.” Mom wrote tagline after “a princess is kind”, of a badass. Yes, apparently when women are kind, The Patriarchy wins. Also, when did moms start using the word “badass” in front of their three-year-olds? Another sexist page audaciously said “A princess is brave” without addressing abortion: It’s important that Feminist Moms introduce their toddlers to the sacrament of abortion ASAP, of course. Mom appended a word bubble “my body, my choice” to the pic of a brave princess.

“And can you believe the book showed an in-love Aladdin and Jasmine holding one another and flying on a magic carpet without so much as emasculating Aladdin? Lindemann couldn’t.  Mom adds caption “she holds on to Aladdin because he is scared.” As perfectly said by PJ Media’s Faith Moore: “The page itself actually makes no mention of Aladdin. It doesn’t even say, ‘Aladdin takes Jasmine on a magic carpet ride.’ It’s about a girl, flying. Seems like that should fit in with the ‘feminist’ narrative that Lindemann, et al. subscribe to. Adding the bit about Aladdin’s fears unnecessarily emasculates him. Why do either of them have to be scared?! They’re holding each other because they love each other. And the page is about a girl who can fly. Jeez.”

“Lindemann also found fault in a page about princesses liking to “dress up.” The mother added: “in her medical scrubs when she goes to work as a neurosurgeon.” Lindemann admitted that her daughter didn’t even notice or care about the edits, saying, “It’s weird because I expected my daughter to react to the edits, but she sort of just rolled with them. Maybe the new narrative seemed natural to her. Why wouldn’t Cinderella have sparkly shoes and also be a neurosurgeon?” Yeah, it’s almost as if the mother subconsciously did it for herself and not her daughter.

The endless politically correct/snowflake/safe spaces/gender roles/dysphoria ad nauseum b.s. is boundless grist for satire and humor among people who actually think with their cortex rather than their cerebellum, but enough of it, along with the failure of courage and principles and respect for history (real, not invented) WILL eventually destroy what is left of freedom. 

When and if multiculturalism overcomes love of and respect for the bulwark against tyranny that our nation has been, where will you go, oh liberals?
