Barbie yang sempurna secara fisik adalah prototype dari fantasi pria tentang wanita secara fisik. Barbie dijadikan gambaran ideal tentang fisik seorang perempuan. Barbie adalah symbol penjajahan kaum adam terhadap kaum hawa secara fisik. Anehnya, Barbie pulalah salah satu hal yang bisa membuat jutaan kaum wanita rela melakukan diet ketat yang menyiksa, perawatan kecantikan dan salon yang juga tak kalah menyiksa (baik secara fisik maupun finasial) serta banyak lagi hal gila yang sanggup dilakukan kaum hawa hanya atas nama “kesempurnaan fisik”. Mulai dari operasi plastik, sedot lemak, botox, catox, brontox hingga menderita anoreksia, bulimia, anemia, insomnia, dan masih banyak “mia-mia” lainnya. Susahnya jadi wanita. Ups, bahkan kata “wanita” pun juga kata yang bias gender. Meanwhile, the dwarfs return—with the prince. The prince is at the retreat to try and cure his impotence, and, attracted to the nubile coma victim, requests to have sex with her; at which point the dwarfs decide that the unconscious Snow White makes a perfect impotence treatment and decide to display her so that they can make more money. However, when they try to move the two women's bodies, the poisoned apple pieces become dislodged from their throats - as in the original story; the women awaken, angry and disgusted at what they overheard while comatose and unable to act. The queen then declares that the dwarfs are trespassers, and throws them out of her forest. She and Snow White later open a spa for women on the same spot.

Politically Correct Bedtime Stories was Garner's first published book (or, in the words of his similarly satirical biography blurb from the book, "his first processed tree carcass"). More than 2.5 million copies have been sold in the United States and it has since been translated into 20 languages. Garner wrote two follow-up books: Once upon a More Enlightened Time: More Politically Correct Bedtime Stories [3] and Politically Correct Holiday Stories: For an Enlightened Yuletide Season, [4] the latter book satirizing political correctness during the Christmas holiday season. In 1998, the three books were compiled into an omnibus collection called Politically Correct: The Ultimate Storybook. [5] All editions of the Politically Correct titles are currently out of print. Garner, James Finn (October 1995). Politically Correct Holiday Stories: For an Enlightened Yuletide Season. New Jersey: John Wiley & Sons Inc. ISBN 0-02-860420-2. The author introduced the book by saying: "When they were first written, the stories on which the following tales are based certainly served their purpose-to entrench the patriarchy, to enstrange people from their own natural impulses, to demonize "evil and to "reward" and "objective" "good". However, much as we would like to, we cannot blame the Brother's Grimm for their insensitivity to womyn's issues, minority cultures, and the environment. Likewise, in the self-righteous Copenhagen of Hans Christian Anderson, the alienable rights of mermaids were hardly given a second thought. As in the original story, the queen pretends to be an old woman selling apples which, in truth, are poisoned. However, during the course of conversation with Snow White, she bonds with her. Forgetting that the apple in question was poisoned, she shares it with Snow White and both fall comatose to the floor.Tetapi siapa yang menyangka, ternyata di balik kisah2 dongeng tsb ada banyak hal lain yang "tersembunyi". tidak hanya sekedar hitam vs putih. juga tak sekedar kebaikan yang akan menang melawan kejahatan. Dalam buku ini, Garner mengangkat issue tentang gender, budaya patriarki, sexist, classist dan juga..Barbie. Essential reading for adults of all ages ... the wisest, funniest, most thoughtful thing yet written on the subject of PC' Observer

close] Bedtime stories will never again be the same--at least not after reading James Finn Garner, who, in surprisingly true Fairy Godmother fashion, waved his authorial wand and revised a large collection of fairy tales and holiday lore in Politically Correct: The Ultimate Storybook. This volume compiles his three separately published books, Politically Correct Bedtime Stories, Once Upon a More Enlightened Time, and Politically Correct Holiday Stories, examining the many "isms," whether glaringly obvious or more subtle, inherent in traditional favorites.

No, the good brothers did their thing long before Betty Friedan and the National Organization for Women, so the only thing left for the author to do is clean them up.There's no point in detailing any of the stories just because the book is so short, but I'll cite a few examples to give you a better idea of what's going on. In "Little Red Riding Hood," for instance, the woodsman becomes a "woodcutter" or, as he prefers, a "log-fuel technician."

Extremely funny .... After one finishes this collection, 'happily ever after' will never seem quite the same. Instead of turning the straw into gold by magic, the girl (Esmeralda) and Rumpelstiltskin take the straw to poor farmers, who use it to thatch their roofs; in better health, the farmers become more productive, which improves the local economy and eventually leads to the overthrow of the prince and Esmeralda's being rewarded with gold. Esmeralda is then able to thwart Rumpelstiltskin's plan to take her first-born child by guessing his name; however, unlike in the original tale, she only guesses it because his " Little People's Empowerment Seminar" nametag is still on his body. Angry at the idea that her reproductive rights were almost taken away from her, she moves to California and starts a birth control clinic and lives happily ever after—as a "fulfilled, dedicated single person."

This parody is based on the classic Snow White fairy tale, with numerous satirical twists (for example, the Seven Dwarfs, who are referred to as "vertically challenged men", run a retreat for men wanting to indulge in "primal" behavior) and a completely different ending. It has similar themes to the Cinderella parody from earlier in the book. Bursting in here like a Neanderthal, trusting your weapon to do your thinking for you!" she exclaimed. "Sexist! Speciesist! How dare you assume that womyn and wolves can't solve their own problems without a man's help!"

Te-ai născut bărbat, ești ,,supi'' că trebuie să cari mereu bagajele și vrei să fii femeie? Nu-i nimic! Nu e nevoie să cauți tratament psihiatric sau măcar psihologic! Ia repede niște hormoni, apoi participă la competiții feminine și plânge-te că nu există drepturi egale între sexe! Țiganul (pardon, rromul!) ăla care miroase urât și se tot uită la geanta ta? Nu a avut timp să se spele pentru că a învățat pentru un examen și doar ar vrea o geantă la fel pentru pirandele lui, dar nu își permite pentru că oamenii sunt nedrepți și nu îi dau șansa să muncească onest. Bineînțeles că femeii aceleia obeze îi stă bine cu fusta aia plisată. Și ea poate fi frumoasă în aceleași haine ca una la care îți poți da seama unde are talia. Iar bărbatul acela e perfect normal să stea în halat roz și pufos și să plângă la Titanic. Oricine are dreptul să plângă când vede cum niște actori își fac datoria. Dacă nu vrei să vezi cum o femeie își trântește sânii pe masa unui restaurant și alăptează, nu te obligă nimeni să îți ridici privirea indiscretă din farfuria ta pentru care ai plătit. Sânii nu mai sunt părți intime, dacă un copil e agățat de ei. Și ce, tu nu mănânci în public? Adică vedetele de ce își permit să își arate sânii? Bine, ele sunt niște cu*ve, în schimb ce femeia aceea face magie. Copiii care au luat note mari primesc diplome și câte o cărticică? Dar asta e discriminare față de cei care poate au stat degeaba tot anul, probabil pentru că părinții le-au spus că notele nu sunt importante, e mai important să își trăiască copilăria fără responsabilități. Once upon a time there was a man who thought Little Red Riding Hood was a vertically-challenged but resolute young feminist... So begins the latest version of the ancient fairy tale, brought up to date for the politically-correct Nineties'- Daily ExpressFinally, after centuries of these abusive tales, which have been handed down--unknowingly--from one male-biased generation to the next, James Finn Garner has taken it upon himself (that's right, yet another man) to enlighten and liberate these classic bedtime stories and retell them in a way that is much more in keeping with the society in which we live today. One of those works which cleave an author instantly to your heart.... It is beautiful. It demolishes, in few but elegant words, a dozen kinds of silliness The wolf said, "I am happy with who I am and what I am," and leaped out of bed. He grabbed Red Riding Hood in his claws, intent on devouring her. Red Riding Hood screamed, not out of alarm at the wolf's apparent tendency toward crossdressing, but because of his willful invasion of her personal space. Garner rewrites fairy tales... into culturally sensitive stories, with all prejudices expunged'- Daily Mail
