Did Disney go PC??

I've heard the Disney parks will take out the selling of the Wenches from the Pirates of the Carribean because people have complained it is sexist. I don't know my stance yet on this.

No. I have people on the inside access to high level managment. They got beat by concerned parents over Depp not being Disney and this is PR move.

Another sign that people are more concerned about electronic dolls than they are about real people. And it isnt about girls self worth because girls have been looking at that for decades now and Im quite sure the percentage is quite low of the girls who were exposed to that scene ended up being wenches sold by pirates. Too concerned about a plastic protective bubble to shove kids in, when in reality kids have been exposed to the realness of life since the beginning of time.

Major falling out with Captain Sparrow. Disney received a ton of calls of people complaining it was not Disney like when Jack Sparrow said he wanted to kill the President. People were not mad it was Trump but because it was not Disney like for a cast member to do this.

I'd believe that far more than I believe it's some uproar about the female image. They aren't going to give up Depp so they're throwing some pointless bone. I don't blame them, odds are damned good Depp will recover from this low approval rating, and be beloved again.

Disney has been PC the moment they were too afraid to release Songs Of The South on DVD and/or Blu-ray. You cannot get anymore PC than that.

And lets not forget the whys and hows the original Fantasia gotten edited over the years.

Song Of The South hasn't had a complete version released on home video in ANY format in the U.S., not even VHS.

My copy was dubbed from a European LaserDisc. wink

I do adore that ride. As a kid going to Disneyland made me giggy. I once got sick because I was so excited about going.
