Do your kids watch Disney?

September 7, 2006

Editor’s note: Great, timely topic, minnmom! I have long had a Disney aversion, and recent events are only solidifying it…-Erika

I’m sure you’re all aware of the “Path to 9/11” brouhaha.  What surprised me is the number of liberals who seem genuinely amazed Disney would support such a thing.  To which I respond: You kiddin’ me? Disney is as conservative/retrogressive/imperialist/antifeminist as they come.  So, do you watch Disney in your house? A lot? A little? Do you think it’s harmless? Scary? I loved Disney’s animal movies growing up (The Rescuers, The Fox and the Hound, Aristocats, 101 Dalmations).  I’ll probably show them to my son at some point.  But so much of it (Little Mermaid, anyone?) weirds me out.  What’s your take?
