Ok so as far as i knew fuckboy started with the whole skeleton war meme thing and stayed so could you tell me what it was before or make a post about it? or what it still is that isn't a sex craving and uncaring pushy boy?

It was “fuck nigga” long before it was “fuckboy.” First usage of fuckboy on the internet was an UrbanDictionary definition in 2004 (as “fuck boy”), with the correct definition of a dude who ain’t shit. The term “fuck nigga” first made its way to white ears in 2012 with the movie Snow On Tha Bluff and the songs All Gold Everything and Don’t Like. The few white people on KTT and /r/hiphopheads that aren’t comfortable saying nigga started saying “fuckboy” and (cringe) “fuccboi” instead, bringing that variation back into the mix. It hit tumblr in 2013 or early 2014 in some text posts, then the skeleton meme came along in mid-2014. After that, a post went around claiming it was a slur against trans men (which, no, it’s not, and no, it never was). Later still, white feminists somehow became convinced they had invented the term as a male counterpart to “slut,” which no, they didn’t, and no, it’s not.

Basically, it’s a term that’s been around for more than a decade that white feminists have somehow decided they invented a year ago to mean something it has never meant.

Attractions of Yesterworld, Where do I even begin with Snow White’s Adventures/Scary Adventures. Well I guess lets start at the beginning shall we? The year is 1971 and the Magic Kingdom has freshly just opened, plus with an attraction based off of Snow White in the Fantasyland area how sweet. The entrance looks comforting and inviting and we hear Snow White’s beautiful singing all along the entrance, must be a fun ride for the kiddie’s. Wrong, wrong wrong wrong wrong god so wrong.

For many of us Snow White’s Adventure’s (As it used to be named) was the first time many of us as children experienced real fear. Some parents unknowingly took their child upon this journey. While other parents (My father) knew very well what lied ahead and wanted to pass the tradition down of being scared out of your wits by a witch while you were still a child to his sons. Thanks dad. In case you all didn’t know this attraction had about 2 incarnations, the original one which ran from about 1971-1994, to the final one which ran from 1994-2012. While many on here experienced the later version (I experienced both but only remember the later version) it’s important to note that the first version of this ride was far more fearsome. 

There was no happy ending, there was no snow white, and every sharp corner you took sure enough there was an old hag waiting to make sure you knew the meaning of fear. For those curious of the original ride layout look above as its the first picture in this post. The difference’s between the old version and the new one were numerous. For example many noted that for an attraction based on “Snow White” she was nowhere to be found. This was intentional as the Imagineers wanted the ride to be from the perspective of Snow White, meaning the rider was in fact snow herself.

But many didn’t get this and complained and yearned to see her in the attraction. Another notable difference was the lack of a happy ending, instead this ride ended with something a bit more gruesome, the Witch killing you by pushing a Diamond to fall over your head. As if that wasn’t enough all the affects in the ride were way more intense. For example the forest scene featured trees much like the one pictured above, that would fall towards the ride vehicle’s. Fall. Towards the ride vehicle. Just take that in. Also consider how close you are to the physical sets in this ride due to the proximity and boom fear factor status. None of the happy tunes of the film were found anywhere on this attraction either, instead you heard shrieks of ghouls, and the far off distance cackle of the Evil Queen.

Even after the Dark Forest when you think you are safe by seeing the first sight of something happy the Dwarfs cottage, you are all too soon let down. Inside you see nothing but emptiness and creepy furniture pieces which seem to glare at you in fear. As you escaped that you would see vultures glaring at you as you headed for your untimely end. Side note those vultures were salvaged and shall be used in the new Mine Train ride to see that follow this link (x).

Then in 1994 due to massive complaints about no warning that the ride was scary, or that Snow white was anywhere to be found the ride was shut for a refurb. In the refurb many of the show scenes were changed and toned down, the ride even got a new name Snow White’s Scary Adventures. In this version Snow White and the Gang were found in all parts of the ride, and this time The Witch was the one who kicked the bucket, the ride even ended with a happy ending of Snow and her prince riding away. Click on each picture for captions explaining a bit more. 

End of a Classic. With the New Fantasyland Project evolving decisions were made, decisions that still don’t sit well with me. Since Cinderella and Aurora’s meet and greet’s were shelved in favor of the Mine Train TDO still decided there needed to be a place the princesses could meet. Instead of converting a store or building a new area to house the Royals they decided that one Snow White themed ride was enough for the Magic Kingdom. Thus Snow’s Scary Adventures was given an expiration date in May of 2012 to make way for Princess Fairy Tale Hall. So this attraction that we all got to pass on in tradition which had been a staple for the Kingdom since opening day sadly we had to say goodbye to it. 

Many came out in droves to say goodbye to this attraction, but none were as notable as Ben. For those that don’t know Ben is a young man with autism who is a sort of celebrity among the cast members at WDW! Why you ask? Because his favorite ride in the entire world was Snow white’s Scary Adventures, he has ridden the ride itself exactly 3,500 times. So on the last day of Operations of course Ben was there, he even got a surprise visit and got to ride with a very special princess to view that click here (which had never happened before) (x). Cast Members came to say goodbye too, and as the night wore on people realized this ride was really going away. So it was fitting that the last person to ever ride this attraction before it’s closure was Ben, to view that click here (x).  Hopefully Ben will love the Mine Train just as much. 

For any of you who never got to ride it, or for those wanting to remember, make sure to put on some headphones and follow this link for a Binaural Ride through Snow White’s Scary Adventures. (x)

Well I hope you all remember this lovely attraction with the same amount of fear and nostalgia that I do. Hopefully the Mine Train can bring in even more elements from this beloved attraction. 

Until then, “Apple Dearie?"
