Back in August, I posted a video of myself reading an old version of Cinderella.
Cinderella is a nice story, but there are some problems with it. Specifically, with Cinderella's fairy godmother. The first time Cinderella meets her is on the night of the ball. Presuming the godmother was there for Cinderella's baptism, this means she sees Cinderella about once a decade. What kind of horrible, negligent godmother is this woman?
And Cinderella's father! Does he not see his daughter get routinely abused by his new wife and stepchildren? Even if you say that the abuse started only after his death, this still leaves the question of why he would marry into such an obviously horrible family.
Maybe he had a fatal disease, and he was desparate to find anyone to be a mother to Cinderella? Or maybe he thought he could reform Lady Tremaine? Or maybe he was just a really bad judge of character.
