Right so there is actually logic to my crazy title. You remember the story of Hansel and Gretel, the adorable kids who get lost, find a house made of delicious goodness when they are hungry. They eat start to eat it and the ‘evil’ witch then comes out pitching a fit and wanting to eat them or some jazz.

Yes that story, I am actually going to be discussing a children’s story today. But not the way you may be thinking… Today I will be talking about building your dream house then someone comes along and eats it… Today I will be talking about the witch and how I really feel sorry for her. So this gal the witch (does anyone actually know her name? Let’s call her the gingerbread hag – apparently that is her given name, shame.) 
Miranda says in Sex and the City – “I just realized… maybe it’s maturity or the wisdom that comes with age, but the witch in Hansel and Gretel — she’s very misunderstood. I mean, the woman builds her dream house and these brats come along and start eating it.”
As I got older I realised that I could totally relate to some of the other characters in films, the antagonists if you will, they are normally pushed into a corner and they are made to become the “Villains”. Some I will agree are just evil AF, the guy who shot Bambi’s mom- Dude that is seriously not cool. 
Maybe we shouldn’t judge everyone on one act… maybe we should take a step back and see why they did what they did… like the witch went batshit crazy because kids were eating her house!
