Some teachers are suggesting that Beauty and the Beast promotes domestic violence.
An anonymous teacher in the U.K. created a lesson plan entitled “Racism/Sexism in Disney,” targeted towards 11 to 16-year-olds. It suggests that Belle is in an abusive relationship, and that the story promotes domestic violence. It also say that Belle’s “only asset is her sexuality”.
Have you ever found yourself to be a little bit uncomfortable with the Disney Princess myth?
