Disney princess

The Disney princess.

 

Geez, how would we know what ideal to have for women if it weren't for Walt Disney? First, we have the waist. This waist isn't even achievable on the model circuit, and the combination of that waist and brust would lead our poor beauty to chronic back problems. The hair? Gotta be extensions. Never seen hair like that on a real person. Finally, what's with Disney's woman always talking to birds on their hands? If a bird came up to any woman (or man) I know, they probably flip out and swat it.

 

This figurine is not some old relic from the antique shop, it's Disney's Modern Woman. It's a laugh, because they go to all of this trouble to pretend that they're "feminist" by making movies with female leads, but that's just an appeal to 50% of the market. They still treat women like crap in their narratives.

 

In Disney, aren't the mothers of most of these women/girls either gone or evil?

 

In Disney, doesn't the heroine always get supplemented by the male hero... or have to ACT like a male in order to succeed?

 

I'd love to hear your thoughts what you think the "message" is behind most of these Disney tales...
