In a new interview with Net-a-Porter’s The Edit, the 35-year-old star opened up about why the 1937 Disney classic is a no-go for 6-year-old Egypt and 1-year-old Genesis…

“I feel like it’s by design that I’m raising boys; like there’s a reason. I really feel that,” Alicia began.

“They say that every child learns from their mother – it’s ingrained from babyhood. Have you watched Snow White lately? I get real funky about the classics; I don’t like [my sons] watching it.

“It’s totally sexist, misogynistic – she’s cleaning for seven dwarfs.

“There’s nothing wrong with a woman who chooses to stay at home with her family, it’s a hard-ass job, but it’s the way it’s spoken about.”

Well, it is our job to make sure our kids are only watching stuff we think’s 100% appropriate for them, right?
