Subversive Fairy Tales

There's been news going around of children's books that are being put in Britain out to emphasize positive representations of gay people... naturally, this was met with extreme opposition by conservative people, and particularly parents who are worried that their children will then feel like they might want to try out same-sex lifestyles. This Guardian book blog hits the right note to say that if parents are worried that their kids might (gasp!) feel like they can actually be free to find out who they are, then perhaps those parents might consider all the bad messages that are already out there in children's books and fairy tales.
