Three-year-old Noah loves to dress up and there‘s only one item he wants to wear - his dress,
三岁的诺亚喜欢打扮自己,他一心想穿上梦想的小裙子,
or to be exact, his Elsa princess dress from the Disney film - Frozen.
更确切地说,是那条迪士尼电影——冰雪奇缘——里艾莎公主身上的裙子。
He is a huge fan.
他喜欢得如痴如醉。
And as the family plan their next trip to Euro Disney,they thought it would be fun for him to take part in their princess for a day experience.
诺亚全家计划去欧洲迪士尼旅游时,让诺亚体验迪士尼公主一日游活动,那一定会很好玩。
Unfortunately the response from Disney was no.
这一想法却遭到迪士尼的拒绝。
The reason - Noah is a boy and the event was for girls only.
他们给出的原因是,诺亚是男孩子,而该活动只为女孩提供。
I was so angry. I literally couldn’t stop shaking for half an hour afterwards.
我很生气,我气到事后半小时仍止不住地颤抖。
It’s just I was just so shocked.I mean, I’m his mother and if I’m okay with him doing it, whoever does need to tell me that he can’t do that. I don’t understand.
我非常震惊。我是诺亚的妈妈,如果我都不反对他这样做,别人又凭什么来阻止他这么做。我搞不懂。
Noah’s family feel he’s being discriminated against on the basis of gender and wonder why Disney would take such a position that stereotypes boys and girls.
诺亚家人认为他受到了性别歧视,并且不理解迪士尼官方为什么仍用有色眼镜看待性别。
The way I look at it,if a little girl went to Disney Land, "I wanted to do a pirate experience or a spider-man experience",
我对此事的看法是,如果一个小女孩在迪士尼乐园,说“我想当海盗,我想做蜘蛛侠”,
there would be no way that they would stop a girl from doing that because there would be uproar.
不会有人来阻止她,人们还会为她欢呼。
So why is it different for a boy.
所以,为什么男生就要区别对待呢。
Disney say it’s not their policy and is an isolated incident,
迪士尼官方回应称,这并不是他们的规定,此次是个例,
adding "we sincerely apologized to Hailey and Noah for the distress caused. We’re going to ensure this does not happen again.
并称“我们真诚地向海莉和诺亚受到的伤害道歉。我们保证此类事件不会再发生。
Of course, both boys and girls are welcome to enjoy the princess for a day experience."
我们欢迎所有人来体验一日公主游活动,无论性别。”
It seems Noah may still get to dress up at Euro Disney, although he plans to do that anyway whether he’s at a theme park or simply at home.
看来诺亚可以如愿在欧洲迪士尼盛装打扮了,其实不管是在主题公园,或是就在家里,他都要完成自己的梦想。
