FML - The follow-up

Today, I was gushing about my love for Disney princesses when someone told me I "definitely needed to calm down." By whom? A four-year-old girl. FML

OP, hi! I can definitely be talkative sometimes, but that's actually not what happened here. I was at my friend's house and we were trying to pick a movie to watch when I noticed they had Aladdin. We got into a silly argument over whether to watch that or some action flick when I started dramatically singing and talking about all my favorite Disney princesses for laughs.

I don't know if this movie was from Disney or not, but it's the one with all the talking books. I want to say it's called The Pagemaster. Fucking loved that shit when I was a kid. And for all you cartoon lovers there's Fritz the Cat. Though, I wouldn't watch that with your children. Anyone who's seen it knows what I mean haha.

Yes someone else likes Mulan, and loll Sleeping Beauty was pretty useless compared to the rest, the others did something to be crown a princess.

somebody's parents definitely don't let them watch cartoons. if you're four and you're already trying to be mature and telling people to grow up then I feel truly sorry for you. Child hood is an early apology for the insanity that is adulthood it should always be fun.

Ursula when she changes to a human is super hot. I remember thinking as a kid it wasn't fair that the bad guy got the more attractive advantage over the good guy. As I've grown up, it seems that it's true to life, too.

Probably would have been the cutest sass ever from a 4 year old girl. But Disney princesses are awesome. I was Cinderella for Halloween like three or four years in a row when I was little.

She obviously doesn‘t get what she‘s missing! Don‘t worry Disney is definitely something almost everyone gets excited about. ^^ (maybe she is just a witch in disguise?)

While I do enjoy Disney movies, I know a lot of people who think Disney is not that good. Mostly comes from the idea that you need to be beautiful, a princess, and have a rich husband in some of the early ones.

I never said it was the best excuse. That was what I was told by several different people. I loved the Little Mermaid and I got lectured by a teacher on how that would "teach you to be self centered and think only of love. You don't have to be a princess to be happy. Blah blah blah." I like to think girls are a bit smarter than believing they will marry a prince or live with dwarfs in the wilderness. I think Disney movies are a great thing for kids to have, it is all in good fun.

actually there is truth to that. i learned in an intro to children's lit class that the vulnerable, beautiful woman that found her prince archetype goes back a long way and is meant to suggest those themes. times were different. same with many popular themes in children's stories. but Disney certainly didn't come up with Cinderella, and original versions had Cinderella slicing the Achilles tendon of her step-sisters and other dark, bloody endings. a lot of those early movies are among many reinv

It's really interesting too, to read the original stories before Disney recreated them to be so sweet and innocent. Back to Cinderella, the step sisters cut off chunks of their foot to make the shoe fit. their heel and toe. In Snow White, when the Queen was given the pig's heart thinking it was Snow White's she ate it. They're really quite gnarly and when I first read them it baffled me to know they made such gruesome stories into children's stories.

89- those gruesome stories were always children's fairy tales. Back then, fairy tales were meant to frighten children into behaving more than anything. But apparently Disney decided kids couldn't handle that and that they should have easy happy endings. I think the originals were more interesting though.

It's no Cinderella to love Disney princesses. In fact, some people love them so much they fly over Disney World just to get an Ariel view of the park. You should definitely try to forget this and relax - maybe make a nice cup of Tiana (Jasmine is my favourite) and look at some tranquil pictures of the Aurora borealis or perhaps some Snow White mountains. I hope this rings a Belle. Good luck.
