And Never Leave the Path

“The wolf said, “You know, my dear, it isn’t safe for a little girl to walk through these woods alone.”

Red Riding Hood said, “I find your sexist remark offensive in the extreme, but I will ignore it because of your traditional status as an outcast from society, the stress of which has caused you to develop your own, entirely valid, worldview. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I must be on my way.”

      I like creating these moodboards. It’s been a while since I last created one.

    Lovely photos. I love the ‘politically correct’ version of red hiding hood. It’s quite funny but has been sometime since I read it 🙂

      She made me laugh 🙂
      I think sanitising fairy tales just to make them politically correct is a serious matter, but this authors made an excellent point by using humour, and I loved it.

    Oh, just kill me now! Little red riding hood was always too naive and stupid, but this just takes the cake! The world is going to Hell in her little basket.
