    Are fairy tales too old fashioned?

    There is a move afoot to sanitize fairy tales, to remove sexist stereotypes from them. Mark and Pete in this special short episode argue that this is a mistake. This is at the heart of the culture war. It’s often said that fairy stories in their original pre-Disney form are far too brutal for kids. It was said back in 1812 when the Brothers Grimm (whose tales appear in the coloured fairy books, translated into English by Lang’s wife) released their first collection: Kinder und Hausmärchen — children’s and household tales. But to consider fairy tales unsuitable for youngsters is to misunderstand both children and the stories themselves.
