Disney Princesses Turn Horrifying in #HappilyNeverAfter Series

Disney is often seen as disempowering to women with its limiting standards of beauty and damsel-in-distress plot lines. Makeup artist Shonagh Scott turned the typical Disney narrative on its head by recreating princesses so raw and real they’re painful to look at.

The “Happily Never After” photo series finds Disney princesses grappling with abuse, domestic violence and severe injuries as their fairy tales turn gory. Snow White suffers from a chemical burn caused by a poisonous apple and Ariel’s voice box is viciously ripped out by the sea witch. Facing violence at the hands of their handsome princes, Belle’s cheek gets clawed after the Beast lashes out at her, and Cinderella trips while trying to escape her Prince and ends up with a glass heel stuck in her face.

Students Protest Germaine Greer Lecture Over Her Comments on Caitlyn Jenner and Transgender Community

Germaine Greer is nothing if not controversial, and the Australian-born feminist regularly raises an eyebrow or eleven when it comes to her views on certain topics and issues.

But this time it seems she has really overstepped her mark, with Cardiff University students now petitioning to have her guest lecture cancelled after hearing her thoughts on the transgender community.

Germaine, who once asked Australia’s foreign minister Julie Bishop if she would #FreeTheNipple for the Bali Nine, recently claimed that transgender women do not “look like, sound like, or behave like women,” and strongly suggested that Caitlyn Jenner transitioned simply to get a piece of the Kardashian-Jenner women’s attention cake.

South Park jumps at the chance to address the topics du jour with its famously crude humor. This week, creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker turned their attention toward body shaming in the age of social media. They didn’t partake in the trolling — well, not exactly — but instead suggested that over-sharing online and only expecting positivity in return is naive and unrealistic. They made their point in typical satirical fashion.

On the show, Butters is asked to filter negative comments for Eric Cartman, who we see shaking violently from the trauma of reading body shaming comments. Butters’ response? “Eric should get off of social media” and “maybe you shouldn’t have put your body” online. Butters eventually agrees to filter through Eric’s comments, and his client list grows to include plus-size models and the cartoon version of Demi Lovato, among others. (more…)
