Yes, it's a small point, so i wonder why you are resisting compromise. Editing is not a competition; we're supposed to be working together. I'm advocating accuracy over political correctness. 16:39, (UTC) "I wonder why you are resisting compromise. Editing is not a competition; we're supposed to be working together." you realise this could be applied to you? The difference is that you haven't suggested a workable compromise: you want to go back to your wording or something that is horrible and verbose (which you've admitted yourself). I've suggested an alternative too, which you seem not to prefer, which is fine, but if we leave "centaurette" in there (complete with scare"s it'll be ripped out at fac. Centaur is a gender neutral term (along the lines of human, alien, etc) so i wonder why you are resisting something quite indisputable in plain English.
Walt, disney 's, mission, statement?
00:00, (UTC)I forgot to add that we are, after all, discussing a paragraph citing examples of Disney's insensitivity! Since nothing left the studio without his approval, it is reasonable to assume that he approved - perhaps even coined - the "centaurette" moniker. However, if someone were to propose, as a compromise, something along the lines of ".Sunshine, the half donkey/half black female centaur (known as a "centaurette" in the film). i probably wouldn't object, even though it's wordy and essay unnecessary. 00:53, (UTC)way too many words. As to the origin of "centaurette there is nothing in Gabler to remotely suggest it was Disney's name for the creature, indeed, itlooks like gabler himself. This really is too small to bother wasting any more breath over, so it can either be left as is (per mos:gnl, or chaged to just "centaur which is, i think a gender neutral term in itself. schroCat ( talk ) 07:50, (UTC)i've given you links that did not come from Gabler. Disney marketed the figurines specifically as "centaurettes" long before gabler. One of the disney books refers to them as ". Centaurides according to legend, 'centaurettes' according to disney." who ".shined their hooves and adorned their tails in preparation to meet the centaurs." It was Disney's proprietary name, and they were clearly distinct from the centaurs, who were male.
"character x, who in about the 19xx version of document foo was called a "xyz. Montanabw (talk) 23:32, (UTC)While i catch your drift, i think we might be getting a little too rigorous and proper. If memory serves, there was (is?) a smurf character of the female persuasion called a smurfette. (you won't find that word in your Merriam-Webster either, btw.) Yet I don't sense any groundswell of outrage, here or elsewhere, to calling her that. It is, after all, an imaginary character - as are the centaurettes, so named by disney studios in a more innocent age. Is continued use of the name by which they are identified in Disney productions, and on their products, insensitive? I would suggest that it is not.
This also applies to the "black" bird in the short "Who killed Cock robin". 23:11, (UTC) to the "nonexistent term" charge: In the world of Disney it certainly exists, and you can easily find enumerable centaurette figurines - all identified as centaurettes, not a single one as a "female centaur" - for sale on Ebay and elsewhere. I didn't make up the word; I'm merely suggesting since that's how the character was identified in the film, and in Disney literature, and was used by our cited source, we should probably use it too, without fear of offending anyone. 23:11, (UTC)There is a need to treat certain issues with sensitivity. Song of the south was also a highly problematic work. One need only father's view any set of cartoons from the 20s through the 50s to see offensive racial stereotypes, not just Disney. But in trying to be accurate, we also should not perpetuate the problem. Ebay and wikis are not inherently reliable sources, though I may still have a copy of the fantasia soundtrack on vinyl that would have liner notes (my mother bought me everything Disney when I was a kid and only sold 2/3 of the most valuable. My take is that if we have a primary source that uses a particular phrase or word, we can "teach the controversy" with careful phrasing, (i.e.
Again, my apologies if any centaurs of either gender are offended.) Hundreds of derogatory descriptors, both real and manufactured, aren't politically correct either, but when a source uses them, so. As I said, it's a small point, and I'll abide by consensus, but "female centaur" is just so lame. Anyone else care to weigh in? (Anyone else care?) Doctorjoee review transgressions / talk to me! 22:32, (UTC) Which is why i put it in"s, of course. —the"s can be ambiguous: are they introducing a term? Are they "scare"s intended to be used ironically or disparagingly? An encyclopaedia should avoid them.
Ask the Experts: Walt disney company vision statement
There are two points here. Firstly, as per user:Wehwalt 's edit, there is nothing about "censorship it is about using gender neutral language. Secondly, "centaurette" isn't a real word. Just because it appears in one of the sources doesn't mean we slavishly follow their use of an sales invented word: good content comes from using real words to describe something. SchroCat ( wealth talk ) 21:30, (UTC) Basically, schroCat sums up what I would say.
I advise against "ette" endings in this day and age, and it isn't as if centaurette is a common term. My spell check is redlining it as we speak.- wehwalt ( talk ) 22:13, (UTC) Miriam Webster show the word doesn't exist, so using a non-existent term when something correct can be used seems an odd choice. SchroCat ( talk ) 22:36, (UTC) Which is why i put it in"s, of course. Anytime something is softened because of "political correctness censorship is an issue. For creatures that don't even exist?
But, also walt Disney legacy will forever live on in his theme parks across the world. Some of the locations are in Paris,California, orlando, florida, and Disney. One of his most famous"s about one of his theme parks was that "It would never be finished as long as there was imagination in th world." As long as thern is children who can bring the imgination to life, walt Disney's legacy will. Cite error: There are ref tags on this page without content in them (see the help page ). "Centaurette" edit okay, i'll "use the talk page for this one".
An editor has objected to the descriptor "centaurette" to describe the half-black/half-donkey character, holding a watermelon, in Fantasia, on grounds that it is "politically incorrect". If the centaur community is offended, i apologize - but "centaurette" is the descriptor used by the cited source (Gabler and wikipedia is not supposed to be censored in any way. Why not use the popular term for this fictional character? It's a small point, i admit, but worthy of brief discussion, i think. Btw i also think the examples should be returned to the body of the text; their recent relegation to a footnote just complicates things for readers. Doctorjoee review transgressions / talk to me! That's a straw man and a half.
