    Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean rides get updated

    By Arthur Levine / Aug 14, 2018, Updated Aug 20, 2018 / USA Today

    “In retrospect, it's hard to believe it took this long.

    For over 50 years, hundreds of millions of visitors sailed past the auction scenes in the iconic Pirates of the Caribbean rides at Disneyland in California and Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom in Florida. Caught up in the pageantry and fun of the attractions, most of them probably didn’t think twice about what was being depicted. But there, in the squeaky-clean, family-friendly, happiest places on Earth, women (albeit, animatronic representations of women) were shown tied together so that they could be auctioned like chattel to pirates. Under a banner that read “Take a Wench for a Bride,” no less. Yo whoa.

    Earlier this year, Disney did the politically correct thing and modified the scenes in the rides at both parks. There are still auctions. But instead of women, it’s chickens and goods that are on the block. And instead of showing 'em your larboard side as instructed by the auctioneer, Redd, the wench in the spotlight, has now been transformed into a pirate herself.

    Brandishing a pistol and trading her frilly hat for a tri-corner number, she still takes center stage. But it’s rum that she’s looted, not her hand in marriage, which the empowered Redd now offers to the pirates....”
