I`m a self proclaimed feminist and I agree with most of it except Bella and Ariel. I don`t remember the disney version, but the original version by
Andersen is a tale of love and devotion, I think. Being hopelessly deovoted to someone. I happens to both sexes. Bella;s story is beautiful excet Disney`s portrayal of Bella as very beautiful sensual woman but story itself is eautiful.

But I have to say I hate Cinderella story with a passion, makes me want to vomit.

um....well ur right ariel did want those legs before she met eric but she was told that she needed to get eric to fall in love with her in order to keep those legs. with no voice she got eric to fall in love with her. she used her body not her personality or brains.

AND ANOTHER THING

Ariel wanted to be a human before she even met Eric. Remember the whole searching through the sunken ship for all the human stuff and going to skuttle to find out more about the human stuff.

I have a young daughter and have seen everyone one of these movies and disagree with the editors assessment of the princesses. $10 says who ever made this is fat and ugly.

Actually that`s a lie. Belle is cultured, intelligent and kind and she`s always talking about not settling for what she has and look for more. That`s why the Beast falls for her, because she ain`t a pushover.

Yes I`m a girl.

Talking about Beauty and the Beast being skewed. How about alladin? Jasmine wouldnt bend to the will of the law and her father, choosing to marry for love over power. And argue all you want about her only asset being beauty, most if not all these women showed compassion and intelligence, except maybe Snow White and you explain to me how your are supposed to demonstrate in a hour and a half long flick FOR KIDS that they got married because he valued her intelligence.

i agree that what was said about beauty and the beast was skewed but that movie was still very f`d up. after constant abuse from the beast, beauty kept coming back and being there for him. no matter what he did no matter how horrible he treated her she was convinced she could change him and that things would be ok. he treated her like crap and she remained. so listen girls if ur man treats u like poo dont be sad!! u can change him...all guys have an inner prince charming and it just takes a lot of patience and putting up with ALL his poo no matter how bad it is..!~~

I think Beauty and the Beast is terribly (and purposefully) skewed. I mean, come on. Sexuality!?!? The beast is saved by Belle`s love for him.

I realize that the creators of this image were exaggerating for dramatic effect, but Beauty and the Beast really is too much of a stretch.

The stories got drastically changed by Walt bloostarfish. In the original version of little mermaid Ariels sisters give her a knife to kill the Prince because he married another woman :D

The sexuality thing doesn`t really bug me, everything these days teaches little girls that if they`re pretty they`ll get their way, what really gets me is that most of them are 16.

Reaper8: I wasn`t saying that the majority are or that it was ok. I won`t argue over that sense it`s mostly one opinion against another.
I was just bringing attention to the two that usually get left out when it comes to discussion of the more popular ones.

MissHallow: So what you`re saying is... a couple of the "disney princesses" are NOT shallow, vapid, beauty-whores, so that makes it okay that the majority are. seems kinda silly.

What about pocahontas? Why does everyone forget her, she was always my favorite.
Also Mulan actully was hiding her sexuality most of the time in her movie. So what about that?

"disney isnt lying though. for the most part, if your pretty and willing to use your sexuality in some way, your life is going to work out just fine."

+1 As long as a girl looks good and all she wants is money then they will have no problem finding someone to become a trophy wife for.

I agree that Belle was a lot less shallow than this is making her out to be. She was smart and able to see past physical appearances.

Ariel was also pretty good as she was curious and open-minded. She was an explorer, pursuing the unknown. I will admit that the ending sort of broke the moral because daddy came in and made everything all better, but up until that point, she was a good character. I empathized with her because of that curiosity and urge to learn. And because we`re both redheads who love to sing. :P

Jasmine was also pretty independent. Yes, she became the damsel in distress, but she didn`t give in to despair and act like a spineless little girl. She was resilient and chose a man outside of her own social class because she loved him.

Hm... I think Belle was a pretty good princess. She was smart, kind, patient, and gave up her freedom for her poor old dad. Also all these movies where based in a time when woman`s right didn`t really exists. :P If my only skill was `boobs` I`d use them!

Disney already used Enchanted to highlight this stuff themselves, albeit less bluntly (obviously). Gisele kicked ass in the end.

haha nidonemo. i remember thinking the same thing when i`d watch the little mermaid! and that was when i was pretty young.. XD
and also, haven`t we all figured out that Disney is totally not child friendly?
all the subliminal sex messages, alice in wonderland has a lot of drugs in it, and all the princess movies have to do with their appearance for love.
yeahhhh.

I connected with her because she was a bookworm, like I was, had brown hair, and spoke french, and had brown hair (but I have green eyes...why arent there any green-eyes princesses? )

That`s all total crap. Granted, some of the Disney princesses did nothing much but bumble around like idiots, somehow managing to get poisoned, and then being saved by the kiss of a prince . However, I think that the trait that Disney princesses encourage in little girls is kindness, above all.

I honestly think the three most recent ones actually have much better justification than this gives, probably because Disney realized that it was kinda demeaning. And only at the cost of destroying the plots and morals of classic fairy tales!

Bell was smart as hell, not just pretty.
That`s why she saw past the Beast`s physical
appearance. Her tolerance was what allowed her
to become a princess and therefore have a better
lifestyle, not her beauty. She even rejects
Gaston, the physical best of the town. So HAH,
person who wrote this.

Oh well I still love the old disney movies. The little mermaid was one of my favorites growing up. Pocahontas, Mulan, and Esmerelda are probably my favorite "anti-princess" characters but i still love the others.

Their mouths are all pretty much identical, and their noses are all the same distance from their mouths. OMG, disney is somehow using their drawing techniques to make us conform to mouth and nose distance standards set by Disney!

I think it`s a great message - be a nice, beautiful, loving woman, and maybe a big strong man will save you from everything. Though I don`t think it applies as much to Belle, who did the saving herself. The others are much more victims that are saved by the prince.

And elphie, actually the way Belle "Saves" the Beast is when she whispers "I love you" to him as he is dying. It has nothing to do with a kiss, and from what I can remember, there is only ever one that is seen in the entire movie, and only after the spell is broken and the entire castle is celebrating.

Belle looked beyond the superficial and had enough brains to say no when she was faced with pressures from her peers.

Cinderella was not only a hard worker who also stayed positive no matter what her abusers put her through, but also had the determination to make sure that the truth always came out, despite those around her trying to keep her silent.

I can argue the other side of all six of these princesses...

Snow White learned how to remain positive in the face of adversity. She was abused but never let it break her, and shone through with her inner strength.

Aurora, due to her circumstances, learned to be self sufficient and a friend of the earth, rather than a spoiled princess who had everything looked after for her.

Jasmine was opinionated and independent, making sure that the "laws" were changed because they were no longer relevant. She CHOSE who she wanted to marry, rather than go by traditional requirements.

Ariel put away her father`s prejudices, and convinced him to do the same, while never letting go of her dreams and the determination to realise them.

Disney sucks. Seriously, the moment they got their hands on these princess stories they turned them into boring shallow idealistic fairytales which would only be considered entertaining 50 years ago when we were all stupid. I don`t care how classic they are, I hate Disney princesses.

Oh, and in the original Sleeping Beauty, her father raped her to wake her up.

Disney did take these stories from old fairy tales. But, Disney changed the stories to give us these useless, feel-good endings.

Well, most of the themes and stories are taken from much older fairy tales, and hot chicks, or the pursuit thereof, are pretty much responsible for every event in human history so the fact that beauty is a central theme to so many stories isn`t very surprising.
