What about the employees who want to be referred to as a “Fairy Godmother in Training?”
Those working in the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Disney’s parks will now be called “Fairy Godmother’s Apprentices” instead of “Fairy Godmothers in Training.”
From WDW News Today:
Cast Members of the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique will now be called Fairy Godmother’s Apprentices instead of Fairy Godmothers in Training to be more gender neutral.
This new title has been added to the Walt Disney World and Disneyland websites. It’s just the latest in a long line of changes at Disney Parks to create a more inclusive environment for guests and Cast.
The blog Streaming the Magic said, “This way cast members that might not identify as female can still be part of the process to dress up & style the children without having to refer to themselves as a female Disney character.”
Why not offer a CHOICE instead of applying it to everyone? People complaining about these titles applying to everyone insists their preferred title must be applied to everyone.”
How do I logic?
What about the people who want to refer to themselves as a female Disney character?
You know those people still exist.
If I worked there, I would want the title “Fairy Godmother in Training.” I want to be a Fairy Godmother! I don’t want to be her apprentice.
When are they going to change her to Fairy Godbirthingparent?
Disney already made the Fairy Godmother a gender-neutral character when it cast Billy Porter in the Amazon Prime Video remake of Cinderella. Porter called his character “GodMuva.”
My head hurts. I don’t care what you want to be called. *I* don’t want to be referred to as anything but a female.DONATE
