In medieval culture, an event like a royal christening is not a private party; it’s the public social event of the year. To not invite any person of rank to such an event is a deadly insult.

Maleficent is certainly someone you wouldn’t want at a party, but she’s also someone powerful enough that only a fool would ever dare treat her with such blatant disrespect. The only way the King and Queen could possibly have gotten away with not inviting Maleficent was to not invite any of the fairies at all; inviting the other fairies and excluding her is explicitly taking sides in the conflict between the fairy factions.

Which means they made themselves her sworn enemies, and she responded by treating them as such from then on. If you actually get into analyzing the social dynamics of the scene, it’s very clear that Maleficent was willing to show mercy at first by giving the King and Queen a chance to apologize for their disrespect to her. She doesn’t curse Aurora until after she gives them that chance and they throw it back in her face with further disrespect.

And yeah, if the King and Queen had done the properly respectful thing and invited her, Maleficent would have given Aurora a scary awesome present. Moreover so would the other fairies, because at that point both sides would be using it as an opportunity to show off and one-up each other. What they gave her before Maleficent showed up was basically just trivial party favors by fairy standards.

How do you know so much about the social dynamics of medieval fairies

Believe it or not, the English, Scottish, Welsh, Bretagne and Irish did have this sort of information available. The belief in the Fair Folk was pretty pervasive, especially outside the cities, and there were rules of conduct dreamed up to handle situations like this.

In this case, you could make a pretty convincing argument for Maleficent as the Unseelie Queen (the Winter Queen). Not a nice person by any means, but not actively malignant unless insulted or threatened.

So if you do go by the idea of Maleficent as the Queen Underhill then yes, by all rules of medieval royal conduct she should have been considered a reigning sovereign and given precedence (because they know fairies exist as a sovereign court, and Maleficent is the strongest of the fairies). Even if you don’t, you invited the Seelie contingent, so not inviting their counterparts is a deliberate snub.

And yeah, OP has a good point. If they’d invited her, she likely would have given Aurora a scary awesome gift. It wouldn’t have been harmful, because having had no discourtesy done to her, she would have no reason or right to (and this be bound by medieval rules of hospitality and courtesy, which were taken VERY seriously). It’d be scary, because she’s Unseelie and they are not so fluffy, but it’d most certainly be powerful (because the Fair Folk are notoriously vain, and half-assing it when there’s other fairies there would make her look weak).

So for all we know, Aurora might have been given Beauty, Grace, Kindness and the ability to turn into a fucking fire breathing dragon at will or something.

I do find it funny that lesbians are perceived as man-hating but gay men are not perceived as woman-hating, and in fact are often illogically shielded from accusations of misogyny simply by being gay

weird it’s like male privilege works even when queerness is involved who knew

Saving Face (2012), acid attacks on women in Pakistan

Meanwhile, in America, feminists are complaining about how dress codes are oppressive.

You idiots have never experienced oppression, and pray you never do, because this is what it looks like.

As a South Asian American feminist, let me remind everyone that oppression is not a competition.

Just because we fight one type of sexism doesn’t mean we don’t care about other instances of sexism that don’t affect us directly in our day to day lives.

My heart goes out to this woman and the hundreds of other victims like her. I want to educate people about these kinds of incidents. I support organizations that help women like this.

You may think that dress code issues are trivial, but they are related to a larger issue of women’s bodily autonomy, which affects women’s health and safety.

So please, let’s try to bring awareness and bring about change instead of insulting entire groups of people because they are facing issues that are less scary than the one presented.

oppression is not a competition

thank you so much for this wording

Trivializing smaller forms of oppression does not help in the fight against more brutal and violent oppressions. Anyone who says “There are worse things happening in the world than [insert pretty much anything a Western feminist might talk about].” is actively reinforcing patriarchy.

It is a common tactic of the oppressor to minimize smaller forms of oppression as a way to justify their actions.
