Fairy Tales


Just when you think that ‘gender studies’ are beyond parody, there’s this. The worry? Sexual stereotyping in the likes of Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty. However, in a rare gesture of tolerance ’sociologists’ are now saying that parents don’t actually have to ban such dangerous literature. They merely should ask their daughters to consider whether such stories are telling them to seek beauty at the expense of their education and careers.

Beyond parody? Oh yes.
