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.

I'm pretty sure every Disney princess that ever was could beat the daylights out of the female leads from both Twilight and 50 Shades at the same time, standing on one high heel and singing a delightful song with a chorus of drunk hedgehogs.

brigid_fitch: And the first Disney Princess whose mother is still alive.


I have stopped going to Disney movies for that very reason. I'm just tired of the characters I identify most with being killed off every damn time. My daughter knows how I feel about this and told me I had to see Brave. Being turned into a bear is definitely a step above dying in a dramatically relevant fashion. And - as a metaphor for going through menopause - it's hard to argue with.

The next Disney Princess is going to be an outraged, 300 pound lesbian named Glorioa (voiced by Rosie O'Donnell).

She will be fighting against the oppressive Hegemonic Patriarchy with the help of her magical friends:
- Kitsune, an outraged, trans-gendered POC who's into serious kink
- Mary-Ann, an outraged, bi-sexual (lesbian leaning) woman who constantly and deliberately puts her self into dangerous situations. Her wacky catchphrase is "stop blaming the victim"
- Loosey-Goosie, the outraged Slut Without Shame
- Jean Sixpack, a young, outraged character with no real convictions or mind of her own but who follows whatever the outraged Queen of Gender Studies tells her to believe without question

The movie will culminate with Gloria magically transforming into a trans-gendered man...

They're still working on a title, but it's scheduled for release in Christmas of 2013.

Listen I am the individual upon which can see two sides of each issue and I will say to you this very much if you think about this Jasmine was the biatch and we can probably all have agreement that Snow White was the glutton. Also what was funny was the movie adaptation of this Snow White movie where Snow White was the investigator who was solving the murder and there was the person who was killed by the sleeping pills and the shy person was killed by being forced to attend the party and one was killed by being forced to do the inhalation of sneezing powder. And at the end of this movie what has happened is the woman who is Agent Snow White goes to the dock to find the head of the husband of she under this. Maybe I am having confusion upon two movies however.

Okay let us also think of the movie the Lady and the Tramp. Lady was certainly the biatch. I mean really she was this as she is the dog which is female LAUGHTER OL. But also she did the leading on of the Tramp so two strikes and she is out.

So yes it does appear of which the stereotypes are present. Perhaps Disney would do much better to work with someone who has known to do the gap bridging of different groups without the stereotypes. Prepare for the next movie of the Walt Disney Company:

No, sadly it wasn't. It was actually based on a true story, but the real story had dildos and other assorted sex toys, so Disney had to clean it up a bit for the kids.

ExperianScaresCthulhu: pedalphile: Pickled Pepper reminded me of another Disney 'princess' whose parents were still alive:

[profile.ak.fbcdn.net image 180x129]

I hope the movie version of 'Peter and the Starcatchers' doesn't fark up the story line. First Peter plays the mother, then the daughter, and all the while has Tink on the side. There are perks to never growing up.

That's what bothers me. He had Tink. Why would he need anyone else? Yeah, I get it, he wants a Mom, someone to lead him and cuddle him and tell him it's going to be alright when he gets sick of being a Leader of Boys doing the leading and cuddling and telling his crew it's going to be alright, himself. Tink is so hardcore, though. She's his equal and more than his equal. But he can never fall in love with an equal. He can only fall in love with someone who.. what?

Twisted Eye:
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.

Let's see... after they left the tower (where she had initially subdued him and knocked him out a couple of times), Rapunzel ended up rescuing Flynn at the tavern (from the thugs), rescued him at the dam (by snagging his wrist and saving him from the horse), rescued him underwater (using her hair to light the way), rescued him from being arrested by the horse by talking the horse out of it for a day, and rescued him at the tower at the end by sacrificing her own freedom.

Flynn rescued her... once, at the very end, by cutting her hair, with an extra half-point for trying to give up the crown in order to get rid of his former partners (failed). This is in addition to his major duties in the film - as a tour guide to lead her to the nearby kingdom.

Admit it - you never actually saw the movie, did you?

I grew up on all that Disney princess crap and felt completely inferior as a tomgirl stuck in a boyish body with buck teeth and bad skin. I could get caught up in the dream of finding Mr. Wonderful one day only to have reality set in and realize that was for the petite pretty girls, not for a homely kid like me. Imagination and fantasy is fine but making kids feel like they will never measure up is just not cool. I would have been so much better off with movies where every girl didn't look beyond perfect and whose happy ending didn't always include Mr. Wonderful coming to "rescue" her. I also think boys deserve the same.

A Disney Princess must satisfy the following requirements:
1. Be a princess
2. Be in a Disney movie

Fact: Disney is the US distributor for Princess Mononoke
Assertion: Princess Mononoke is a Disney movie. Says so right at the start

Fact: San, the Princess Mononoke, is a princess. Says so right in the movie title.

Conclusion: San, the Princess Mononoke, is a Disney Princess.

images.paraorkut.com
This is San. She's just fished a bullet from her mother's shoulder.

With her teeth.

San does not hide from her adversary in the forest with seven men of subaverage height and questionable motives. Sanwill use the forest to mount a guerilla campaign to kill any of her adversary's retainers who venture out of the safety of the stronghold.

San does not suffer the abuses of petty step-siblings. Her siblings are two meter tall white wolves. They do what San says. Or else.

San does not judge her worth based on her marriageability, political connections or her relative attractiveness. San judges her worth based on her body count.

San does not wait passively for her prince to save her. San infiltrates a heavily armed compound and attacks her adversary at close range with a knife.

San will not alter who she is for her man. San would rather returned to her devastated homeland and attempt to rebuild than forget who she is and follow him as an obedient wife.

San could take all the other Disney princesses herself. At once. Including Jasmine's tiger.

San. The Princess Disney doesn't want to talk about.

You may not have noticed, but popular children's media tends of have unrealistic portrayals of everyone and everything.
Disney cartoons portray talking animals. We'd better put a stop to this lest children grow up and spend all their time trying to get the family dog to talk.

Surely you are not equating the obviously magical elements of the story with the ostensibly realistic ones?

fark, it bothers me when they anthropomorphize the animals in stereotypical ways too.

Obviously magical vs. ostensibly real? I'm not sure my 6-year old daughter is mature enough to make a distinction between the two in every single case.
Perhaps you shouldn't watch children's media any more. You seem to be having quite a difficult time with it.

brigid_fitch: SphericalTime: However, some of their recent princesses are great symbols. Merida from Brave is an awesome example, her storyline was basically, "You don't need a man to do awesome stuff and control your own destiny. " I loved the fact that she didn't even have a love interest.

And the first Disney Princess whose mother is still alive.

But, yeah, Brave was definitely a departure from the Disney formula and more relatable to a LOT of kids. "See, Mom's really just looking out for you and does love you. Please don't turn her into a bear."


imgs.mi9.com

I always thought it was MAJOR weird that her only explanation was "well, when I was a little girl, a witch put a spell on me", and it'd be broken somehow by a proper kiss, which is an unusual condition to leave in a form of harm thrown at someone. And left it at that. It's odd, it's the whole premise for her character and necessary to explain her character, but it's an absurdly vague backstory. And the audience just suspended questioning there, I think assuming that it would be explained more further on, then forgetting about it. Until IIRC they started patching that canon hole in later movies.

Not to say Shrek wasn't a great movie. Just weird that you can say "a wizard did it" and not be obligated to explain it for real.

If the cartoons you watched as a child determine how you live your life, you need help. My wife loved princess movies as a little kid. Owned all of them, had her room decorated with pictures of the girls in them, themed birthday parties, the whole nine yards. Right now she's an officer in the Army who has served two combat tours, with a CAB and jump wings tacked on. The only thing that you could really call "girly" about her is a love of the color purple, and the fact that she likes having long hair. My cousin grew up watching GI Joe, John Wayne movies, and playing varsity baseball and football. He grew up to be a gay investment banker married to a poet. Of course, he's also a right wing Republican on everything but gay rights.

Three sandwiches for elf-biatches under the sky
Seven for dwarf bros in their halls, all stoned
Nine for morbid men who like to cry
One for the meme lord on his porcelain throne
In the land of mustard, where that dude gets high

meh

I had a challenge on my blog a couple weeks ago that everyone was too lazy to take up - but they should have. So I challenge you farkers!

Basically, I wanted people to rewrite Disney fairytales - for example, instead of Prince Charming marrying Sleeping Beauty - he gets arrested for date rape.

;)

Cymbal: WhippingBoy: I've often wondered... instead of complaining about what Disney does, why don't people make their own movies? That way, they can make the heroes/heroines whatever way they want them to be.

Because it would be half-assed and under-funded shiat that we'd all lose money on to the point of bankruptcy.

Then we'd turn to making reality porn.

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

No, it's based on Queen Boadicea of ancient Britain. When she grows up she'll be flogged and raped and her daughters raped and eaten by Romans. Don't worry. Nothing good can come of her treacherous feminist ways.

I can't wait for the sequel.

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

Quick, name the movies!

Nope.

Which Disney movie is that? I must have missed one.

Tangled


Tiana from "Princess and the Frog" and Mulan both have their mothers still, too, if not already mentioned.

brigid_fitch: SphericalTime: However, some of their recent princesses are great symbols. Merida from Brave is an awesome example, her storyline was basically, "You don't need a man to do awesome stuff and control your own destiny. " I loved the fact that she didn't even have a love interest.

And the first Disney Princess whose mother is still alive.

But, yeah, Brave was definitely a departure from the Disney formula and more relatable to a LOT of kids. "See, Mom's really just looking out for you and does love you. Please don't turn her into a bear."

pudding7: Who are Snow White's parents? Why is she a princess and what is her relationship with the queen?


Mother died in childbirth & father remarried. Then her father died, leaving her w/the evil queen.

Where is Ariel's mother?

Dead

Why didn't the good fairies wait one more day to return Aurora to her parents, thus voiding the curse?

Then it would have been a very short movie.

Why didn't Cinderella just knock on the Prince's door and say, "I'm the one you're in love with"?

quickdraw: brigid_fitch: And the first Disney Princess whose mother is still alive.

I have stopped going to Disney movies for that very reason. I'm just tired of the characters I identify most with being killed off every damn time. My daughter knows how I feel about this and told me I had to see Brave. Being turned into a bear is definitely a step above dying in a dramatically relevant fashion. And - as a metaphor for going through menopause - it's hard to argue with.


I annoy the crap out of my wife by pointing out how seriously farked up most of the princess's home lives are. None of them had a normal childhood, most are missing one or both parents.

Who are Snow White's parents? Why is she a princess and what is her relationship with the queen?
Where is Ariel's mother?

Disney stories are lousy with plot holes.

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.
