Didn't Read It Did You

The Wicked Witch of the West is not some misunderstood victim of The Wizard of Oz.

She's the bad guy.

She's an unrepentant bad guy.

She doesn't need a redemption arc or a story from her perspective where she's the hero.


Because the fucks at the Wannsee Conference, from their perspective, thought they were the heroes too.

Of course, given the level of antisemitism from Hollywood of late, perhaps the dancing monkeys would agree the Nazis were the good guys...

  1. And the witch from Sleeping Beauty isn't a forest heroine either. Neither are any of the other evil witches, warlocks, monsters, stepmothers, fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, other evil people found in fairy tales.

    But, if you look at the Wizard of Oz, it all comes down to women killing each other over a pair of shoes...

    (Baum purposely wrote the whole 'Oz' series without any strong moral value because he didn't feel the readers needed one. Unlike actual fairy tales where there was a strong moral value behind each action and story.)
