So I’ve been running into a lot of talk about Disney “princesses” lately. It’s not necessarily a bad thing but it gets a girl thinking.
Today I found a thing on Yahoo that had pictures that brought to life Disney Princesses. These women were beautiful. Yeah, when they were cartoons they were good looking but now they’re just freaking hot.
So it makes you think….what standard is this giving girls? You have to be hot to get a man and marry rich and life will be okay? I don’t agree. Noone sees what happens after Cinderella and Prince Charming get hooked up. I mean read the Brothers Grimm version of Cinderella. One of the sisters cuts off her toes and the other her heel and pretty much everyone’s eyes get plucked out by birds. Yes, bloody, but hey that’s life. Bloody, messy, never neat.
Now I’m not saying Disney is the bad guy here. I loved Disney movies growing up and I still do. But give us an average looking princess that everything doesn’t work out perfectly for.
There’s this guy I kind of like and I was thinking about this situation. A Disney princess would have just batted her eyes and BAM this would have been all fixed and they would have lived in a castle. I bat my eyes and what happens? Nothing. A Disney Princess would have been introduced. I still have not been introduced to this guy (yeah, I know, make it happen. I’M WORKING ON IT OKAY?).
Anyway, Merry Christmas, you get my opinion.
