    How long before we start seeing tattoos on Disney CM's?

    Then perhaps you should read up on the slippery slope fallacy. ;) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slippery_slope

    Because some people will bend over backwards to be inconvenienced. It's that plain and simple.

    To be clear, I wasn't implying you specifically. Just the royal "you" - many others in this thread. :) And agree that details make the difference, but again many - not you - are creating this false equivalency that is a frank and desperate attempt to discourage inclusivity.

    Spot on and boy, people are working hard in this thread to make the point that CM's don't matter.

    Because in many cultures pointing with one finger is rude. So what you presented is a false equivalency - you're comparing a gesture and direction that is notably rude to certain populaces with something like a discreet but visible tattoo that you'd have to look hard to find, then jump through...

    News New Changes Coming to the Disney Look 2021

    So, allow me to allude again back to my Abercrombie days, a brand that also had a very strict look policy that was rooted in an "All American" look that I already noted was rooted in prejudice. Like Disney, Abercrombie forbade tattoos, unnatural hairstyles, facial hair, and the only nails that...

    Actually what @TheMaxRebo stated is exactly what the emerging workforce is looking for in a role. In addition to better pay and more flexible work environments, they're looking for ways to express individuality and looking to work for companies with a positive impact on society (read: more...

    Wasn't implying that it excuses it, but just putting forward an alternative perspective is all.

    I can see that yes! Though - and real question, wouldn't the "relentless positivity" be a symptom or product of the decades of negativity, versus the other way around?

    Don't know about you, but a Drag Race-ran WDW sounds like a blast. :)

    I always thought this argument was funny because I think it's made up. Are there people that provide Disney with platitudes every time they release a statement or make a decision? Sure. But let's be real, that type of behavior is largely reserved for the bloggers, vloggers, and that niche...

    Disrupting theming is always a valid concern, sure. But calling a more inclusive approach to casting and calling it "lowering standards" is where the problem arises - not that I'm saying that's what you meant!

    I'll take a pass. No, I do not think that when the Disney Look was established that it was done to discriminate. At all. I do think, to your point, it was done to maintain the "1950's" look. But go deeper - that time period was all about embracing the "All-American" look, but what do you think...

    This is a slippery slope fallacy. A main entrance CM wearing a simple necklace with meaning does not equate to a CM on Indy wearing a MAGA shirt.

    News New Changes Coming to the Disney Look 2021

    This is all terrific news and absolutely falls under the umbrella of inclusivity. Too many people are upset about a visible tattoo being "unprofessional" without actually questioning how the standards of professionalism came to be. Here's a hint - they're rooted in prejudice. They had tattoos...
