Disney princesses star in incest
Are you ready to see pictures of King Triton forcing himself on Ariel? Well, ready or not, if you click on this link, you’re going to.
"Princest Diaries" is a new section on the website of the online artist Saint Hoax, and it currently features three iconic Disney princesses getting forcibly kissed by their fathers. Accompanying each of the images is the PSA, "46% of minors who are raped are victims of family members. It’s never too late to report your attack." The artist was apparently inspired to create these pieces after she learned that a friend had been raped by her father at a young age.
I was initially put off a bit by these images. While the message is important and I don’t personally have much of an attachment to the princesses that Disney is intent on shoving down America’s throats, I felt that I really didn’t need to see cartoon characters engaged in forcible incest. I want to see children’s characters being forced into sexual situations about as much as I want to read a comic in which the Incredible Hulk gets raped (which, incidentally, has actually happened, but that’s a topic I can go into another time).
The images made me uncomfortable, but that’s what they were supposed to do. Moreover, that’s what needs to happen if the average American is going to get informed of the sexual abuse problem that pervades the modern world. This is an uncomfortable topic, but it’s also a serious problem. When we’re comfortable, we tend to pretend that this sort of problem doesn’t exist.
Based on statistics on the Rape, Abuse, Incest National Network’s website, more than 17 million women in this country have been victims of a rape, with another 2.78 million men added to that figure. Both results are likely higher, because rape and sexual assault tend to be underreported crimes, especially among men. A reported 93% of juvenile sexual assault victims know their attackers, so it’s not like the only danger out there is the movie scenario where a complete stranger jumps out of the shadows and attempts to rape a victim. Sexual assault tends to be much more subtle than that, to the point where both the victim and the perpetrator tend to justify it in ways that makes it seem to those individuals that they didn’t really do anything wrong.
These are all statistics that I’m aware of, but they’re not something I keep at the forefront of my brain. And while I don’t need to view everybody as a potential predator, I do need to remember that these dangers are out there. I need to make sure my kids know what is appropriate and what isn’t appropriate, and I need to make sure I listen if they tell me somebody has harassed or assaulted them, instead of dismissing it as just a story.
Sexual predators don’t wear signs to advertise what they are. In fact, most of them don’t even think of what they’re doing as sexual assault. If it takes pictures of Disney characters in uncomfortable situations to remind people of the facts, then so be it.
My sister in law is one of 5 kids, 4 girls and 1 boy. Her father never touched any of them. But he did force himself on his granddaughter when she was just 10 years old.
Knowing this has made me a little paranoid as no one saw it coming. Someone they loved and trusted did this, he had never done anything to them. His granddaughter is his only victim, he spent 5 years in jail and is out.
It makes it very hard to know who is safe because people do not advertise and you never know. Someone who was safe may end out not being as safe as you thought.
