From the phallic towers of Little Mermaid to the S-E-X rising dust in Lion King, Disney has been fighting accusations of hidden sexual imagery in its films and advertisements. The perceptive and/or the prurient-minded seem to discover sex, sex, sex, sex, SEX in every inch of Disney work.
Now Disney's newest, latest cartoon classic, Sand Castles, the story of college Freshmen from Brigham Young on Spring Break in Disney World who discover mysterious powers in the sand Castle they build right out of their imaginations, is stirring up conflict because of reputed "sexual imagery in the ad and the film".
Mormon Bishop Polyg Ami denounced the imagery as religious bigotry: "Why must the liberal media portray clean cut Mormon youth as a bunch of titty-obsessed perverts. Mormon youth does not need to make icons in the sand. They've had all the pussy they can stand since 3rd grade in the seminary. Where do you think it got its name from!"
Disney spokesperson, Sumana Vitch defended the film and its ads:"Clearly we are darned if we do and darned if we don't! Try to tell a decent family story about nice religious kids like Mitt Romney and they pile on. I'm so sick of people mistaking castle towers for breasts! Have they ever thought that maybe this is not the work of bored to death Disney artists but maybe their own dirty little minds!"
