Fairy Tales

Alikat & Molly, it's also been an example that I've used over the years that the nature of women has been thoroughly manipulated over centuries (millenia?) through literature, art, legend, etc. From "Cinderella," to "Sleeping Beauty," to "The Little Match Girl," women have been portrayed as sacrificing for the good of someone else.

In the case of "Snow White," she's brought back from the brink of death by Prince Charming and they lived happily ever after, etc....... When is someone going to write a contemporary Fairy Tale that has the female protagonist thanking Prince Charming kindly for his attention, but replying, "No, thanks. I've got a Fortune 500 corporation to run, a gallery to open, and I'm chairing the Chamber of Commerce for the next year, but I'm willing to do lunch with you every now and again." ?????

There ain't no such animal as a "Prince Charming!" LOL
