'Disney Is Introducing A Jewish Princess. But The Term Is Loaded' jellymalin

| Posted on 1 hour ago

The Walt Disney Company doesn’t quite see it that way. It declared with some fanfare yesterday that Disney’s first-ever Jewish princess will hit our screens this December. Jamie-Lynn Sigler, herself educated at a Hebrew school, will voice the character in a Hanukkah-themed episode of the seriesTo my shame, the image that sprung to mind on hearing this news was that of a spoilt, bratty version of Cinderella.

'To my shame, the image that sprung to mind on hearing the Disney news was that of a spoilt, bratty version of Cinderella' As with all disputed terminology, the impact is more important than the words themselves.

We don’t shy away from earning money and we value our financial independence.

Ben Fogle condemns The Guardian over reference to David Cameron’s ‘privileged pain’'I am not a Tory and I am certainly no apologist for David Cameron,' explorer says Though I read many Guardian articles, the article including “privileged pain” challenged my open mindedness about the paper’s intent. It boggles the mind how somebody could right such a statement, in the circumstances, without being bigoted, angry and vindictive. Major error.
