What Actress Kristen Bell is Saying About ‘Snow White’ and Consent is Truly Absurd

This is a real head scratcher.

It seems as if this is the week for Hollywood actresses to try and solidify their street credibility with the feminist crowd by setting their sights on Disney princesses, bashing the legendary stars of these classic animated tales for not promoting “female empowerment.”

The first actress to do so was Keira Knightley who said she has banned the well known films “Cinderella” and “The Little Mermaid” for her three-year-old daughter, accusing the movies of sending “false messages on female empowerment.” Yeah, if you’re not sure what exactly she’s getting at here, don’t worry. You’re not alone.

Joining Knightley in her crusade is “Frozen” actress Kristen Bell, who put “Snow White” on blast because she didn’t give the prince consent to kiss her. Isn’t it kind of hard for the prince to get consent when Snow White is locked in a death like state by the evil spell of the witch? How, exactly, is he supposed to get consent?

Speaking with Parents, Bell expressed how she loves reading to her daughters and discussing the stories every time they put the book down. In the case of “Snow White,” Bell used that to teach the girls a lesson about consent and talking to strangers.

Bell explained, “Every time we close Snow White I look at my girls and ask, ‘Don’t you think it’s weird that Snow White didn’t ask the old witch why she needed to eat the apple? Or where she got that apple?’ I say, ‘I would never take food from a stranger, would you?’ And my kids are like, ‘No!’ And I’m like, ‘Okay, I’m doing something right.'”

Fair enough. In fact, one could even say that “Snow White” teaches a lesson in cheerful naivete regarding the witch’s trick. But that’s not Bell’s only contention with the fairy tale classic; it’s the method by which Snow White awakens from her poisonous slumber that really irks the actress.

“Don’t you think that it’s weird that the prince kisses Snow White without her permission?” Bell says she has asked her daughters. “Because you cannot kiss someone if they’re sleeping!”

The problem here, again, is that Snow White wasn’t just taking a nap in the woods and this man just strolls up and plants a big one on her. Without this kiss, she’ll die. She’s incapacitated and without the prince’s kiss, she’s never going to wake up. Hardly seems sensible to make this some sort of morality tale about consent.

Director Spike Lee Says Some Black Americans ‘Will Drink Orange Kool-Aid’ And Vote For Trump In November

Published

on

Infamous director Spike Lee is no stranger to making controversial statements, particularly when it comes to the issue of race relations, a reputation he’s not only well earned, but one that he continues to establish with his latest comments about black people who vote for Donald Trump in the upcoming election. Lee calls the support of Trump by black Americans to be “drinking the orange Kool-Aid,” which one can suppose he considers to be a rather clever little combination of pop culture statements. Apparently, if you have dark skin, you aren’t allowed to think for yourself and decide who you want to vote for based on what your own political beliefs happen to be. Instead, you need to forego your identity as an individual and cast your ballot as a member of the hive mind that is the modern-day Democratic Party. And yet, conservatives are considered the racist ones? Here’s more on this from the Washington Examiner: Lee is working on a new movie about the Vietnam War that features a character who is a black Trump supporter. “My co-writer Ken Wilmott and I to put some tension in the group. These four brothers who grew up, who fought side-by-side in the Vietnam War and are coming back 40 some years later,” Lee explained. “So everybody can’t be — everybody went off after they came back from the war, so people went their different ways and … I would like to add, played by the great actor Delroy Lindo, he really makes you understand why he’s wearing that hat, and you have sympathy for him.” Well, now. That film is no doubt going to be a fair and balanced portrayal of both the Vietnam War and what black Trump supporters are really like, right? Wrong. It’s a propaganda piece. That…

Willie Robertson, one of the star’s of “Duck Dynasty,” recently came out and stated that his family had become the victims of a drive-by shooting on Friday. Eight-to-ten shots were fired from the main road into his estate in the town of West Monroe, Louisiana. One of the bullets entered through the bedroom window of the home where his son, John Luke Robertson, lives with his wife Mary Kate and their infant child. Fortunately, no one in the home was injured by the shots that were fired. Here’s more on this from Yahoo News: “We were pretty shook up,” Robertson said in a Sunday interview with USA TODAY Network. “It looks like they were just spraying bullets across my property.” The property and houses on it are behind a fence and gate and located far off of the road. No arrests have been made. Robertson said multiple witnesses saw the truck in which the suspects were riding pass by the property at least once before firing the shots at 2:33 p.m. local time. Robertson went on to note this happened in broad daylight. According to Robertson, many members of the Robertson clan are currently living at his estate during the coronavirus outbreak, his daughter Sadie Robertson and her husband Christian among them. “Nobody was outside at the time, but everybody had been out about five minutes before,” Robertson told the media. “I had just gone to the store when it happened.” Witnesses said the vehicle involved in the shooting as a Ford F-250, white over brown in color, with big aftermarket tires and rims. The driver was described as a young, white male in his teens or early 20s. There were other individuals in the vehicle as well. Surveillance cameras captured the vehicle on video. Authorities are asking for anyone…
