Life Imitates Fiction

I have a book, popular a while back, entitled Politically Correct Bedtime Stories. It consists of edited versions of faerie tales with anything to which people have been known to (successfully) take offence altered.

Well, Tongue Tied is reporting,
Researchers have decided that age-old fairy tales such as Cinderella and Snow White contain so many stereotypes that they are just as harmful to children’s psyches as the misogynist, violent, drug-addled videos of current popular culture.

I suppose I should have seen this coming.
