The Australian state of Victoria is about to get push its political correctness agenda further with new suggestions they will “restructure” schools to avoid gender-stereotyped fairy tales. This is the same state where the city of Melbourne recently began spending big bucks on replacing some traffic crossings symbols with female ones.

“The Respectful Relationship” program wants the likes of Cinderella, Snow White and Rapunzel analysed and compared to modern stories like Moana, Frozen and Finding Dory that supposedly challenge the expected standards of genders. The program argues that the traditional tales we all grew up with creates impractical standards as well as a “sense of entitlement in boys and lower self-esteem in girls”.

Victorian premier Daniel Andrews claims the fairy tales are not at risk of being toned down. The supplementary teaching aid encourages early childhood teachers to consider their own use of language, such as “boys don’t cry”.

As a girl, I always thought that a prince in shining armour would rescue me from the horrors of my parents’ divorce. It never happened. I grew up and realised fairy tales do not create unrealistic expectations because they are stories of fiction.

Girls in fairy tales are always given an amazing role. Think Alice in Wonderland, Cinderella, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Little Red Riding Hood, Pocahontas, Mulan, The Princess & the Frog. The list goes on.

Feminism doesn't speak for women like me. I'm against the radical feminazi's we women are dragged down with. Against the idea that on this planet lurks a white straight person privilege. Equality is not equal. Men and women are not equal.
