Never have I hit reblog so quickly.
ETA: ***acknowledges problematic aspects of this while appreciating subversive use of established art form to champion women***
So I made this thing and I’m pretty proud of it, haha.

Oh this is lovely.
I dedicate this little number to all those who like to say Disney princesses are nothing but passive, submissive, and horrible role models.
Bless this post.
I would also like to point out that four of these five are the WOCs.

MOAR OF THEEEEEMMMM
This is my youngest daughter, Ava. I felt that I needed to share the conversation she and I had after a school field trip today.
Ava: Mommy, we saw Princesses skating on the ice!!
Me: Wow!! Did you have fun?
Ava: Yeah, but there is a best part!!
Me: What was it?
Ava: We got to meet the Princesses and I asked Snow White if she had a boyfriend.
Me: (Laughing) Did you? What did she say?
Ava: She said she did and then she asked me if I had one!! And I said I had one, but I didn’t like him any more.
Me: Oh. Well, how come you don’t like him anymore?
Ava: Because I like my other friend now and then I got scared and asked her if I could still be a princess and she asked why so I told her that my friend I like is a girl and I want to have a girlfriend.
Me: (a bit surprised) Oh. Ok, well what did she tell you?
Ava: That’s the best part! She said that as long as I have love I already AM a Princess!!
Reblogging because. Just damn. I would tell kids this kinda stuff. Gah, I miss being a Princess. V_V
My Disney princess half sleeve - a work in progress, as you can tell (:
“I think the people hoping for a lesbian princess need to be reminded that Disney movies are aimed at kids. I don’t think there is anything wrong with being gay, but to push the idea at kids before they understand what that means will only confuse them. Also as a parent, I would be pissed at Disney for addressing such controversial topics in a movie intended for children”.
In Disney movies we’ve seen witchcraft, arranged marriages, women being poisoned, chased, forced to act as slaves (Cinderella anyone?), abused verbally and emotionally by their peers and families, we’ve seen them locked up in towers, persecuted for a variety of reasons, kidnapped, traded and essentially sold to the highest bidder. In Disney movies we’re basically told from an early age that real women wait for their princes, do as their told, allow themselves to be used as property by their families, and that their primary purpose is to wait for a handsome prince to come and sweep them off their feet.
Plenty of Disney movies have controversial content. But it’s the loving, respectful relationship between 2 women that’s going to push things over the edge?
Get. Fucking. Real.
You know the people on the planet who seem the LEAST confused by homosexual relationships? Kids. Why? Because to a kid… two adults in love is just two adults in love. You have to TEACH hatred and bigotry. If you don’t… you end up with children who accept love for what it is— love.
Our children will not be confused… YOUR children may be. But maybe the problem there isn’t a nice little Disney story about two women who fall in love… maybe the problem is you.
Bolding by me. Children can be fine with this and not love? Really?
That response is GOLD.
