To this day, on the 1st april 2013, I'll stand bravely and say "I was a part of the Mishapocalypse."

CAN YOU KNOT
While the topic of boundaries and consent has been discussed before, it wasn’t until I re-watched Disney’s Sleeping Beauty that I realized just how much of skeezeball Prince Phillip was in the 1950s version of the story. He grabs Aurora no fewer than three times, ignoring her obvious discomfort, and sneaks up on her as she tries to escape.
I wonder now if the newer scene from Maleficent on the right was deliberately set up to parallel the old one: both take place in the woods on Aurora’s sixteenth birthday. But unlike Phillip, Maleficent respects Aurora’s wish to be left alone and doesn’t chase after her when she runs away.
Allow me to link, once again, to my essay on Maleficent, Consent and Feminism. In it, I discuss precisely this issue.
"I’ve never been good at projected plans. I sort of take life as it comes, and have faith in my happiness, I guess. Is that totally lame?"
