When WDW first opened in the early 1970's, there were two strange things (by today's standards) that went on that we all talked about back then:
1. When you entered the front gate at the MK (the only park on the property), the CM at the gate would run their fingers down the backs of the female customers. The reason? To see if they were wearing bras! (This was during the height of the Women's Lib Movement, when many women refused to wear bras as a sign of their "liberation".) If the CM ran his finger down a female's back and felt a bra strap, all was OK. If there was no bra strap, then no admittance for that female. (This policy didn't last long.) Anyone remember this?
2. In the early 1970's, the Mickey Mouse character (who appeared frequently around the MK park) was notorious and well-known for posing with young women - with his hand on their breasts! Seriously. (I'm not making this up.) When asked to pose with a young woman, he would put his arm around them and then cup their breast. We all knew about it - and had lots of photos to prove it. We used to encourage our unknowing girlfriends to pose with Mickey - and then laugh at the results. (Note: in the early 1970's, there was no concept of sexual harrassment.) As I said, Mickey's "subversive" behavior was known and appreciated by many regular Florida visitors back in the "crazy hippie days" of the early 1970's. Does anyone remember this?????
