It seems to me that since the 1950's American protests have gone off the 
deep end. Not only is the Sambo story driven from India to insulting 
Afro-Americans but Little Red Riding Hood is a rape victim on one count, 
had an abortion on the other. Peter Pan was gay. Hazel and Gretel are 
victims of child abuse. . . Cinderella got divorced before Nevada could 
set up a court system and Snow White got into dog fights with her step 
mother, not to mention the princess and the pea and Goldie locks!
Dickens had a word about you Mr. and Mrs. Scrooge.
What happened to fairy tales?
According to your versions Tinker Bell could never have had a pretty 
bell much less could Tiny Tim have had a dream.
You make me cry.
