When parental guidance seeks to lecture instead of inform

Aladdin

Who knew? Instead of a love story involving magic carpets and a genie, Sky UK decided to depict the movie as:

This film has outdated attitudes, language and cultural depictions which may cause offence today.

Disney depicted it as:

‘Aladdin’ is the exciting tale of the charming street rat Aladdin, the courageous and self-determined Princess Jasmine and the Genie who may be the key to their future.”

Perhaps the Australian government-owned ABC can advise these self-appointed media censors with its Kids TV platform which already brainwashes children about white privilege, using tax dollars of course.

We wonder in the future whether past choices made on streaming services will be used in evidence to convict enemies of the state. 20 years to life in a gulag for allowing one’s kids to romanticize in a fairytale that shows good defeating evil.
