Calls For 'Sleeping Beauty' To Be Banned Because Prince Kisses Princess Without 'Consent

• Prison by Steve Watson

A British mother has been criticized after calling for a ban on the fairytale 'Sleeping Beauty', arguing that it promotes "inappropriate" sexual behavior.

The London Telegraph reports that the woman, Sarah Hall, took to social media to complain about a book her six year old son brought home from school, depicting a modernized version of the classic story.

Mrs Hall argued that the book should be immediately removed from the school curriculum for young children, tagging her tweet with the hashtags #MeToo #consent which have been used by others recently to relate their experiences of sexual harassment.

In a further statement to local press, Mrs Hall explained her concerns:

"In today's society, it isn't appropriate – my son is only six, he absorbs everything he sees, and it isn't as if I can turn it into a constructive conversation."
