1) be rich and good looking
2) be rich and good looking
3) be rich and good looking cursed to be ugly until good looking again
4) be rich and good looking
5) pretend to be rich and good looking
6) be rich and good looking

ExperianScaresCthulhu: T.rex: Newsflash, every girl in the world wants a Prince Charming to come take care of her.... It has nothing to do with Disney. Its called genetics. Same types of roles exist in the animal kingdom.

Can you two please, please go tell that to a women's studies professor at the local institute of higher learning and film her reaction?

Pocket Ninja: They are stereotypes, subby, but they are the best kind of stereotype. They present us with an idealized template of something pristine and untarnished, a lingering reminder of a perfection and purity that, while impossible to experience, can serve as the stuff of dreams. My great fear is that someday there may be people -- cynical, jaded people, empty people with dark place holes where the souls should be -- who will attempt to pervert these shining examples of femininity, who will twist their innocence and goodness into the most vile, sick, degrading type of "internet porn," which some reports say is proliferating with disturbing rapidity in the internet's darker corners. I hope it never comes to that.


If you happen to find any links to such evil material, I urge you to post them. I, and I'm sure many others, share your disgust at such lewd sullying of feminine purity. Indeed, I find myself white-knuckled and red-faced at the very thought.

...with RAGE. I am positively white-knuckled and red-faced with rage at the thought of such outrages upon tender, pristine, exquisiteness, and it's hard to keep a grip on myself.

Post links quickly, please.

That is good. Better still if she hasn't internalized any of that nonsense.

Apparently little girls are just as stupid or intelligent as an argument needs to them to be for whatever the person arguing is trying to prove.

Thorak: Tangled was a marginal step forward (Princess' mother still alive), but it still suffers a TON from "princess needs a man to accomplish anything". And he's no better; the one saving grace is that he's not attractive AND good-hearted AND wealthy, just two of the three. A marginal step up from Aladdin who was the same two, but faked the third to try and get the girl.


What version of Tangled were you watching? Rapunzel was the competent one and the one continually moving the plot forward, despite Flynn's constant fark-ups and general incompetence.

If you vreally want to piss broads off either tell them that princesses arent all powerful omniscient creatures or tell them that they cant ever be princesses. Either way they go farking nuts. They have a princess gene or some shiat that makes princesses really REALLY important to them. Nobody knows why.

bunner: Mike Chewbacca: Your sister is a great example of feminism in action because she was given the choice to work or to be a stay at home mom.

Actually, as a political construct, my sister wouldn't hit a dog in the ass with "feminism".


Perhaps not, but the fact that what she decided to do with her life was a choice, not a requirement, is exactly what feminism is all about. The fact that two different groups of people -- one claiming to be feminists, one claiming feminists are the enemy -- have tried to hijack the term and the goals doesn't change that. It's not about ensuring that everyone will make the team; just that everyone has a chance to try out.

I find it interesting that all these Disney movies revolve around princesses, with the adult queen (if there happens to be one in the story) as a villian.

Aren't the princesses going to grow up to be Queens? Queens have Important Sh*t To DoTM, like running countries when their King bites it fighting dragons or runs off to the Crusades.

I guess royal council meetings about crop reports aren't very fairy-tale friendly.

Disney may of slapped their name on the movie but their is no way she is.

How do you know those Disney princess movies aren't just appealing to little girls who like that kind of thing in the first place? I watched all those movies growing up but the princess characters never really appealed to me nor influenced any of my behavior as a child. Also, who says it's wrong for a little girl to want to grow up to be beautiful and marry a rich man, like that that's a bad thing? You'd be a big ol' liar if you told me good looking women didn't have an advantage over ugly ones.

And since now that you dare not even hint that every woman on earth isn't precious, unique and qualified at birth to run the U.N., what does it do besides sell cheesy sitcom plots, poorly written books and T-Shirts? I'll tell you what it does. It moves money around. And nothing in America lasts more than a week unless it does. It all gets whored, it all gets co-opted and it all finds the pool of hard core acolytes who will happily trade their iron clad ideology for a new SK Class and 60k a year. And that's what's wrong not just with feminism, but the entire western world.

But all the women I go after aren't looking for their Charming... Just a rich Asshole.

I really liked Disney movies. Sure I had my cynic stage of "Disney sux Spawn rulz, dude" during my early teen ages, but I really liked them when I was a kid. Specially Sleeping Beauty.

And honestly, it was because the Fairy Godmothers are tons of fun and Maleficent was a kickass villain (yeah, her motivation was kinda vain, but... fark you biatch, she can turn herself into a dragon!!!). So yeah, the movie was tons of fun. Screw the princess, the real protagonists are the Godmothers.

Also, I always gave another reading to the whole Belle and the Beast dynamic. I always saw it as Belle falling in love with the Beast AFTER he stopped being abusive emo jerk

Yeah, he redeemed himself for her, but she didn't did the whole "Oh wow, a troubled bad boy... how sexy" nor the "My love can change him" crap. He pulled his shiat together and proved being a better person and a good guy, THEN she fell for him. I never really saw it as Stockholm Syndrome. I could see the counter argument of viewing women as merely reward for good conduct and all the bashing against the Nice Guy archetype if the point of view of Belle wasn't shown also.

I can understand the complains about gender issues, specially directed towards the classic princesses (Snow White, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty). After all, those (barely) characters aren't even the main focus of their own movies and none of them have a really distinct characterization. They pretty much stand around and look pretty while much more interesting characters steal the movie (Again, the Godmothers on Sleeping Beauty are tons of fun). Thing is, those movies are product of their time and their source material.

Now, the new ones (from Little Mermaid onward... well, except for Pocahontas) are much more round characters, they are the actual focus of their movies and are (in my opinion) much more interesting, specially compared with the Classic ones. I'm not saying that the gender issues aren't there, and that Disney could not deliver a much more round, complex and deep character as a Disney Princess. But there are much more interesting female characters outside the Princess franchise. Yeah, I cheat including Pixar, but Disney distributes their movies under their brand.

/The Bledchel test, while interesting, doesn't mean anything really.
/Sex and the City passes, if I'm not wrong.

bunner: The Whore Of Mensa: She responds, no, that's okay, I'm going to go home to my village and do nothing with my life.*

Yep. That's the message for girls that I'm NOT crazy about.

Isn't that what feminism was about? Doing what you please with your life even if others think it's not important?


well, in the movie it was established that she didn't want to be like the other girls in her village. She didn't want to get married off, but she didn't seem to know WHAT she wanted to do. So... if the Emperor of China offers you a job in that situation, and you say... naaah... kind of a let-down for the character.

and, as a feminist-- feminism does not exist to attack "traditional" female roles. Feminists want all women to be fulfilled and supported and equal, no matter WHAT life they choose. Sometimes that message gets lost, and I should have stated that more clearly earlier. I'm just saying, Mulan seemed opposed to "traditional life" as a character-- it was an about-face to change tacts at the end just to give the traditional Disney ending.

And here I am arguing the feminist impulses of a cartoon character on fark. Tragic. I'm going to bed.

Men want that, too. It's called "crossing your fingers and doing your best." They don't really put a gender assignment to it because it seems a bit silly to define it what way. If one waits for somebody *else* to do all that for them, though, they may have missed "equality" when perusing the Websters. It's a crapshoot and men don't have as many "options" handed to them as women seem to think

check your websters. "equal" as in "same as" ... not "better than". if you have a problem with that notion... then you have a problem. now, if you'll excuse me, I have to get back to crossing my fingers and hoping for the best. same as you.

T.M.S.: Gyrfalcon: T.M.S.: We just bought another Disney dress yesterday bringing the total to four. Merida, Snow White, Belle and now Rapunzel.

My girl says it's a Princess's job to wear pretty dresses. How could I argue with that?

Clearly you are raising a slave to fashion and she is doomed to become nothing more than a dull housewife with no ambition or drive of her own, you evil patriarchal oppressor.

The bigger question is whether her Princess Barbie dolls are clad or unclad. My niece has a toy box full of Princess Barbies, every one naked as the day they came out of the mold. All this about Barbie being a bad role model is only true if all little girls grow up to become nudists, I guess.

No interest in Barbie. Only 3. But if she did have one I figure it would resemble what Frank Zappa termed "Snot Woman".


Give her another year, then.

Also +1, would lol again.

Christ, are you for real? I feel sorry for you if this is what your life is like...

I would ask if you were for real, but I know already that you have trollish tendencies. Is everything really face-value for you? Are all humans perfectly self-interested cognitive agents? Do you not believe in an unconscious mind? Do you not think that subtle messages can have affects on greater society? Do you not appreciate nuance? Are you utterly dependent on ad hominem attacks?

You would seek to deride me for my persistence, but I'm not arguing with myself, am I?

I feel sorry for you because every experience and special moment you'll ever have will first need to be passed through your feminist lens to make sure it's appropriate and subscribes to your own limited world view.


Thanks for dodging all my questions and making gross assumptions. Sorry for espousing a worldview puts choice as paramount. Feel free to utilize more faux sympathy and ad hominem next time,

Dhusk: Since we're doing non-Disney princesses too, I figured Celestia was pretty obligatory. And she has Disney-like trappings she's very un-Disney in many ways...she's one of the most powerful beings in her world, the head of state, hads no male counterpart or love interest, and is wise and learned and accomplished...and she's not even human so the beauty standard doesn't really apply.


Any of the main characters are worthy role models- two (Rarity and Applejack) are successful small business people, two (Pinkie and RBD) are dedicated employees, one (Twilight) is a diligent student, and the last a trustworthy public servant (Fluttershy). All do their jobs of their own free will, choose what they love, do it exceedingly well, and enjoy it.

One of the things I notice is how girls are never taught to embrace their jobs - they "have" to do them. Either to provide for others or themselves, but never because they care, even if it is something uninspiring. It's part of the old thing - men have careers, women have jobs. Women are expected to do their jobs, but the jobs are not central to them and they can leave them anytime, to have a baby or something. The old joke about women have lots of life choices related to marriage and work; men go to work, or penitentiary. Not so for the Mane 6, all of them love their jobs. And while some are more concerned with partners then others, they all treat their jobs as something central to them.

Once again, proving the brilliance of Lauren Faust. She took pastel colored ponies (themselves a Freudian symbol of girls looking for stable masculine images) and made them a reasonably positive third-wave feminist icons.

Bontesla: Are you kidding me?

Of course the Disney universe is based off of stereotyping.

I loooooooove Disney movies but there's some insane stuff in the films. Remember Beauty and the Beast? If you love your absuive boyfriend enough - you can turn your beast into a man, too. He locked her in a room, was physically aggressive, withheld meals, and threatened to murder her father unless she obeyed.


Of course, the "hero" Gaston wasn't much better in that one.

that bosnian sniper: Thorak: Tangled was a marginal step forward (Princess' mother still alive), but it still suffers a TON from "princess needs a man to accomplish anything". And he's no better; the one saving grace is that he's not attractive AND good-hearted AND wealthy, just two of the three. A marginal step up from Aladdin who was the same two, but faked the third to try and get the girl.

What version of Tangled were you watching? Rapunzel was the competent one and the one continually moving the plot forward, despite Flynn's constant fark-ups and general incompetence.


It's not the same movie?

The stories themselves aren't really a problem. As long as you also read your little girl books like Ramona the Brave and Otherwise Known as Sheila the Great.

But the level of princess mania/worship particularly in the US has gotten to sick, weird levels. It seems to be all princess, all the time. I do find that... disturbing. Probably aggravated by a lot of dead-inside soccer moms who hated working and also regret being mothers so are projecting their wish fulfilment on their kids.

I cannot stand Disney. But then I also can't stand Warner Bros. Something about the schmaltzy corporate Americana makes me want to rip my eyes out. If I accidentally come across some I HAVE to turn it off or change the channel, it is that grating. The voices, the lame tired jokes, the stupid slapstick - it almost feels physically painful.

You do know that nearly all little girls get past their Disney Princess stage, right? It's the ones whose mommies are showing up on "Toddlers and Tiaras" you're going to have to worry about in ten years.

Most of us ditch the princesses when we discover horses and boys.

FTA: The modern Rapunzel of "Tangled" is independent, clever and funny.

No, no, and no, what? The character was at least as stereotyped as the others. Rapunzel was absolutely independent and strong! ...UNTIL the very moments when it came time for her to be saved by the Male Love Interest, then she was completely powerless, every single time. But hey! She's strong and independent, because she can hit a guy with a frying pan! ...Yes, a frying pan. TO THE KITCHEN, GIRL!

And oh my god the Pop Country stylings in the music, ow ow ow holy shhhwait that's got nothing to do with the topic. Uh I liked the horse though!

Oznog: jst3p: Masterstuff: So Brave was an Original idea? As in wasn't directly related to some fairy tale?

I said that I would only watch Disney movies if it had an original story... looks like i'll have to find this in one of the theaters that show old movies around here.

Isn't Toy Story original? I hope so because those are pretty cool movies.

NOTHING is "original" if you look at it hard enough. Star Wars is a typical "Hero's Journey" layout. Its concept for space battles was copying WWII nosecam footage, which wasn't well-known at the time because The History Channel wouldn't start airing every known frame of it in a continuous loop for another 20 years. The trench scene was a pretty shameless ripoff of an obscure WWII movie called Dambusters, like shot-for-shot. There's some video online of how Indiana Jones was a ripoff of an old black-and-white adventure movie, again, so shot-for-shot it's nearly plagiarized.
