And yet I bet you think the Bible is less violent and has no allusions to sex, whatsoever....

This is my favorite part of that thread:
"Fantasia is like an LSD trip so I've been told."

Are you out of your mind? Disney is one of the most doctored/censored storytellers out there. Everything is Family Values and Vanilla, and everything has a Happy Ending.
Just look at The Little Mermaid. In the original H.C. Andersen version, the Mermaid dies in the end; she becomes foam on the waves. Disney's version is a leettle more "cute" in the end.
Over here it's rather "Oh no, Disney is making this story into a movie! Then we'll never get the whole story, just some childish For The Whole Family crap".
The day Disney bought Pixar was a day of mourning, almost.

Don't forget that in the original version of Cinderella, the way the prince found out that the stepsisters weren't his beauty was because birds pecked the eyes out of the stepsisters because they cut of their toes to make their feet fit.
Or in another version of the Pied Piper, he leads the children down to the river to drown like the rats he removed, or even a pedophiliac serial killer.
In Snow White, she was raped and woke up to see two children that she'd given birth to.
The original fairy tales are much more violent than the Disney version.
No, Disney would never dream of making fairy tales straight out of Brothers Grim. The most controversial Disney will choose to be is the Pirates of the Caribbean with PG-13.
You don't have to worry about Goofy First Blood: Part II or Micky and Minnie Make a Porno.

Those fairy tales were the child safety awareness programmes of their era.

Here in Britain things work much the same way. By the time you're 15, you've figured out how to sneak into the 18 movies anyway.

Ok, blame the traditional tales for not adjusting to your Victorian morality.
2/19/2010 2:07:49 AM
Yeah, like any of that is present in a Disney movie, gah.
Oh yeah, and what the hell is wrong with allusions to sex?!
You're in a fucking death cult! do you honestly consider that which ends life preferable to expose your children to than that which creates life?
Ah, what a backwards mindset.

Ugh. I hate it when Christian fundies whine about movies. They are not made to your ultra-high standards and if you think they're so bad for your kids, preview the movies before you take them instead of ranting about the "inappropriateness."

This is why the world laughs at you, America.
2/19/2010 3:43:32 AM
You mean like kissing and TOUCHING!?!?!

David J. Stewart? Is that you?

Yeah, I remember the lesbian scene in Aladdin, the masturbation bit in The Little Mermaid (that was effed up right there) and the bestiality in Beuaty and the Beast.
It's called Parental Bonus, or getting Crap under the Radar.

Yeah cause Bambi is sooo hot, lol.

Why Fundies Make Horrible Movie Reviewers, part 1 million.
2/19/2010 7:18:39 AM
I could laugh at this were it not for the disturbing fact that this ridiculous puritanical attitude to children's programming has become the norm even for non-fundie parents due to the religious-right-wing's blathering on the last 25 years about everything being so "innappropriate" for anyone under 18. I'm just grateful my own parents thought for themselves instead of listening to idiots like this.

"In Snow White, she was raped and woke up to see two children that she'd given birth to. " Wasn't that in the sleeping beauty tale?
2/19/2010 7:36:25 AM
Arg, double post :/
2/19/2010 7:52:30 AM
So what ISN'T evil to the fundies? Next you know, kittens are gonna be evil.

They Call Me V
Yeah, Disney is unsuitable for children... then what the hell can children watch? Tele-tubbies? Oh, I guess you could possibly slip them some Toon Disney access for their sweet 16, but that's pushing it, a task more or less reserved for cool uncles or liberal siblings.
On the other hand, The Hunchback of Notre Dame had some seriously dark shit in it. Peanuts compared to the original, of course, but that Frollo guy was one depraved mo'fo.

"they do contain strong direct and indirect influences which are detrimental as applied to sexual behavior"
Did you attempt to join some strange cosplay fetish group and were susequently rejected with concomitant frigidity?
2/19/2010 9:41:20 AM
Translating from the Fundie, we get: "Hormones, puberty and sexual urges are a wicked lifestyle choice. As long as we don't let our kids know about them, they will stay children.
"Sadly, they seem to grow up anyway, so I'll blame the hidden sexual agenda of atheist society, as depicted in Disney Movies"
