In response to Chris McGovern: ‘Blob’ to subvert fairy tales in feminist assault on childhood, Bik Byro wrote:
Looking forward to how Cinderella overthrew her capitalist sisters with the help of the Fairy Godfather, who was transgender and wanted to be known as the Fairy Godmother.
She tore up her zero hours contract and led a demonstration up to the gates of the palace where Prince Charming was dining with businessmen. The Prince was appalled by her fiery left-wing enthusiasm but because he was a weak man with only one thing on his mind, he decided to sleep with her anyway.
Cinderella was empowered to have sexual intercourse with Prince Charming on the first date due to the sex education lessons she received at school. She then cried abuse to the authorities, using a glass slipper as evidence, and they believed her because that is what policy dictated.
As a result, Cinderella received a large payout, receiving the Prince’s palace in settlement. As a result of the night of passion, she gave birth to a daughter. Despite Prince Charming’s constant attempts to see her through the courts, she denied him access all their lives, despite still taking child maintenance off him.
Cinderella went on to marry the Fairy Godmother and they had another daughter via artificial insemination.
The two daughters grew up, one became a columnist on the Guardian, the other became President of the United States.
And they all lived happily ever after. Except for the men in this story, but they don’t count so who cares.
