Well, considering this is a witchcraft forum, please note that you have already been taught and accepted "fluffy bunny (a term I personally hate) bullshit" since Little Red Riding Hood in its original meaning was not about "the dangers of walking alone at night." For more details if you are interested see https://web.gsc.edu/...ding%20Hood.htm
You know, I have to say... I really liked the new Red Ridding Hood movie for the reason that they kept some of the original themes and meanings in the story (plus the fact that the movie was about werewolves (that actually looked like wolves) and had Gary Oldman in it didn't hurt any ). The ending was drastically changed of course.
