The Sleeping Beauty tale must be revised:

Fairytales have a history of being rewritten to reflect changing attitudes and it’s time for Sleeping Beauty to have another reimagining.

Gone are the days of saving helpless women with a predatory kiss. Harsh, but true, the princess wasn’t even awake when the Prince kissed her.

The discussion’s been sparked by British mum Sarah Hall who has asked her six-year-old son’s school to remove the fairytale from its circulation because it promotes non-consensual kissing.

Better that the totally helpless princess sleeps forever than be pecked on the lips by a young man who’s battled mightily to save her.
