I think it was that they were not overly protective, overly sensitive and
being politically correct hadn't been invented yet. In one of the older
versions of Cinderella you have the stepmother, in order to get the
daughters' feet to fit the shoe, one had her big toe cut off and the other
the heel. Which is interesting, because this would mean that the slipper was
not clear/see through because the blood was noticed coming out of the shoe
and not seen through the shoe. If you can find the oldest fairy tales and
read them then read the same stores written through time you will see how
they progress from horror/scary, sometimes gory to fluffy bunny/magic
And going back to the fairy tales, I found an image of a giant with a
knife in the throat of two kids, drawn by the French artist Gustave
Doré, masterly done but very disturbing.
It was the illustration of a fairy tale, it seems our ancestors didn't
have any sensibility to these things.
