Alicia Keys Calls Original ‘Snow White’ ‘Sexist’ and ‘Misogynistic’

what are we offended by

From MSN: Alicia Keys doesn’t want her kids “Fallin'” for the lessons in classic Disney animated films — especially Snow White.

In the latest issue of The Edit magazine, the 35-year-old discussed why she doesn’t like her two sons watching certain movies. “They say that every child learns from their mother — and it’s ingrained from babyhood,” Keys said. “I get real funky about the classics; I don’t like [my sons] watching [the original Snow White]. It’s totally sexist, misogynistic — she’s cleaning for seven dwarfs.”

The 1937 Disney animated film pits the titular White against an evil witch, with a colorful cast of dwarves for her to take care of. The “Girl on Fire” singer went on to clarify that it’s not how White spends her time that bothers her. “There’s nothing wrong with a woman who chooses to stay at home with her family, it’s a hard-ass job, but it’s the way it’s spoken about,” she said.

As an artist, Keys has been known to create anthems for change and focusing on individuality. “For the first time, I’m recognizing how art, activism, socially what we’re going through, all go together,” she said. “For the longest time I thought it was all separate.”

Blah, blah, blah. Read the rest of the story here.

  2. of course she is! I wouldn’t have pegged her for understanding the importance of the Constitution, Supreme Court Justice pics, what freedom actually means to the rest of us etc. I also didn’t give her credit for anything but the music she puts out.

  4. It’s a stupid movie no matter what. I don’t let my kids watch it because it has witches and magic, which the Creator says to stay away from.

  5. another malcontented elitist…these people are nuts…nothing wrong with being ‘pure as the driven snow.’..if kids held that virtue today, we wouldn’t have this STD/STI/drug resistance epidemic going on among the millennials and others.
    the only misogyny going on in the movie was from snow white’s own step-mother who hated her and wanted her dead.
    also, wasn’t “snow white” the only disney movie where the main character actually prayed (to God) and said “bless” and “amen”? maybe that’s why the movie truly ruffles her claws…
    yeah, it’s horrible to pray and be courted by a man and to have a good work ethic by cooking and cleaning the dwarves’ house to earn one’s keep. yeah, horrible movie (sarc.).

  7. Oh good grief, it is make believe. I am pretty sure when kids sit down to watch it, they never think about anything but the entertainment of it and that good wins over evil. So,what if it has witches? Good prevails and kids need to know that.
    Watching it as a child, I never gave a second thought to any of the above worries. It was just a cool cartoon with music and dancing and beautiful pictures.
