Snow White's Response

Really, stepmother, I understand.
In this youth-centered culture,
Just like Hollywood, younger is better
Regardless of talent.

I'll get the same reaction
In twenty years
When a new, lovelier princess
Emerges from puberty
and charms the masses with her
innocence and fresh beauty.

Let's leave together.
There must be a society
That values women more than this one.
Leave that apple -- and that blasted mirror! -- behind.

This one made me smile. It's too true.

It also reminded me of Into the Woods by Stohen Sondheim, and must see musical if you can. (Yes, I said musical, but this one is so beautifully satirical it's worth watching.)
