disney...setting females back a hundred years one iditic portrayal at a time

I know the average female lead in a Disney movie has an intelligence equaling that of a department store mannequin, but they've outdone themselves with Maleficent.

Princess Aurora meets Maleficent in the woods and says, "I know who you are. You're my Fairy Godmother."

*blink blink*

Really, honey? What it gave it away? The black dress? The black wings? Or the black horns SPROUTING OUT OF HER HEAD?!
