The Disney Princesses

The Disney Princesses

I have been watching all my childhood favorites and am starting to realize some things. For now, I'm going to stick with just the princesses but if people want or this gets popular I'll continue. Let's think about the princesses!

The Negatives and The Positives

The Negatives and The Positives

The Negatives:

First off, I want to start by saying I do love these movies and enjoy watching them still but I have strong opinions on them too. I am a strong feminist and these are merely my opinions, so please, no hate mail.

I have noticed with every princess, thy find their true love. I'm not going to be like any crazy feminazi and be like "That's so wrong! Girls don't need a man to be strong!" I agree with that but these movies were designed for young girls and most young girls want to find the love of their life. Now my problem with the whole love stuff is THEY GET MARRIED AFTER THREE BLOODY DAYS USUALLY. That's just weird and wrong... It takes time to fall in love. Sure love at first sight is a romantic notion but does it really need to happen to every girl! What happens in most real life situations with love at first sight is divorce.

Also, their age! SNOW WHITE WAS 14! That is MY age! The picture shows the rest of the ages. That's insane! Why can't you be 23 when you get married! I mean 14 is too far.

I know this may sound faminazi-esque but they're all pretty. Again, I understand these are made for young girls whose dreams are to grow up to be super models but that's just not realistic. I just want one ugly princess or one who isn't perfect...



The Positives:

First off, who doesn't love the Disney girls?! The do show a good personality and show that morals are very important to success. Each one represents something (I will get into this in just a moment).


I do like the princesses because they do inspire little girls and have entertaining tales. They're also good to explain things to younger ones. Most impotantly, Disney World! Just kidding. I could never be hateful towards the princesses as they are an inspiration and role model to little girls.

I don't know If you knew, but Megara was killed by Hercules in the Greek myth.
Not to criticize your love of Disney, but they made hundreds of mistakes in Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland and the little mermaid. Just one other note, the Hercules movie has the same name as the myth and most of the same characters but a totally different plot which ruined it for See More▼

This is not about the true fairytales hence the title of DISNEY princesses. If I did the other princesses I would say The ORIGINAL princesses. This is about disney and nothing else.

Got it, I'm just annoyed about the Star Wars thing because I loved the new Jedi order books that (sadly) are not true anymore.

Have you noticed that almost all the Disney Princesses are incredibly naive?

That was one of my major points.

Well in that (supposed) time period it was normal to have a child bride because of the lower life expectancy

First off, excellent analysis. However, keep in mind the years their films were produced. Many of the most beloved and classic princesses were created in the 1930s (Snow White) on up through the 1950s (Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Alice) where gender roles dominated a lot of the society and people were much more conservative. They started to branch out a bit See More▼
