    Princeton Singing Group Dropping Disney’s ‘Kiss the Girl’ Over Consent Concerns

    “The song launches a heteronormative attack on women’s right to oppose the romantic and sexual liberties taken by men”

    The left will not be happy until their lunacy has destroyed every aspect of our culture. This is madness.

    The Washington Times reports:

    Princeton a cappella group scraps Disney’s ‘Kiss the Girl’ over consent concerns

    A male a cappella group at Princeton University is scrapping its tradition of performing “Kiss the Girl” from Disney’s “The Little Mermaid” after students complained it violates consent.

    Wesley Brown, president of The Princeton Tigertones, announced the group would stop its tradition of singing “Kiss the Girl” after student newspaper The Daily Princetonian published an editorial calling it an “offensive and violating ritual.”

    “We sincerely apologize to any of our past participants and audience members for whom our performance of this song was uncomfortable or offensive,” Mr. Brown wrote in an op-ed last week. “Our repertoire, traditions, and group as a whole are constantly evolving, and thus we value this opportunity to ensure a more comfortable performance environment moving forward. We hope to continue fostering an open dialogue with our audiences both on and off Princeton’s campus.”

    An editorial titled, “Dear Tigertones, please stop singing ‘Kiss The Girl,’” published by The Daily Princetonian last month argued that the song “unambiguously” encourages men to make physical advances on women without their consent.

    “The song launches a heteronormative attack on women’s right to oppose the romantic and sexual liberties taken by men, further inundating the listener with themes of toxic masculinity,” wrote The Daily Princetonian’s Noa Wollstein, Inside Higher Ed reported Monday.

    Without “evil” heteronormative desires, there would be no Princeton students. Are these uneducated twits capable of thinking in context, or are they merely “Chatty Cathy’s” who parrot dogma at the pull of a string? Sad, very sad.
