Interest Groups of the Caribbean

Disney is once again changing its "Pirates of the Caribbean" ride.

Because as we all know, pirates were extraordinarily sensitive to the rights of women.

The Los Angeles Times article also notes that Disney no longer sells the frontier rifles in Frontierland.  

When we took our children to Disneyland many years ago, I bought a flintlock rifle (and a flintlock pistol!) for my son. He was somehow able to overcome the trauma of the purchases.

I am wondering if the pirates will be disarmed in the future. 

Admit it. That is not beyond the realm of possibility.

The cash cow of Star Wars owned by Disney has per movie death tolls in the billions, hundreds of which are witnessed directly by the audiences. Hypocrites.

Hollywood in general can be creatively flexible in such areas.
