    Disney Princesses will always look like two bowling balls attached to a twig.

    Unless you're pixar, but pixar doesn't count.

    I wonder how many 1 dimensional tropes we could get in.

    An LGBT, Asian-African (throw in some Mexican too I guess, make her an absolute mutt), Communist, Outwardly Curvaceous, "Woman" that just wants to watch the world burn.

    I wonder how he would respond if Prince Charming had the body size of Shrek?

    Who am I kidding, 100% of his being would want to be embraced by those big burly arms.

    Yea, neither is being fat.

    It's a cartoon. The eyes on them are huge also...is that making people with eyes smaller than their wrists feel bad about themselves?

    If you have to look to a cartoon to find self worth then there is something wrong....and it isn't Disney. It's a cartoon, not a role model. Parents are role models.

    If the argument is that a skinny princess cartoon will make kids be unhealthy to get skinny, then the counter would be a fat princess will make kids want to be fat.

    I want a gay, super hero with ADD and 3 toes on his left foot so I feel better about myself. :rolleyes:

    Will they include the cellulite and stretch marks? Will she have a double or triple chin? Since people want Barbies and Disney Princesses to be realistic, they should go all the way with it.

    In Dreamworks' defense, they did have an ogre for a princess.

    I don't see why Disney couldn't.

    On a side note, their Disney Dream Portraits are absolutely stunning. Some of the people really fit the characters they portrayed, when you look at them. For example, Alec Baldwin does match, Queen Latifah makes Ursula look good, Taylor Swift is apropos, Scarlett Johansson is great, Phelps is a given.. well.. you get the picture (pun intended).

    I would give anything for a lesbian knight and princess story.

    I find it amusing that Dreamworks beat Disney to a plus-sized princess (Fiona's ogre mode).

    Anything.. ANYTHING that can generate a positive feeling of self worth or self-empowerment in a person, let alone a child is NEVER wrong. Any parent would love to have that encouragement for a child in addition to their teaching.

    So in following your logic, the millions of kids out there who watch Thomas & Friends must want to be a train, right? Or those that watch Curious George want to be a monkey? Or perhaps those that watch Bo on the Go must be bad, because the main character in the show gets them to exercise, right?

    My son said to me yesterday that he would love to be smart like Peg (from the show Peg + Cat). Peg + Cat teaches how math and counting can be fun. I'd welcome that ANYTIME.

    I'll say this, and it will be blunt: If I were your child with you being my parent, with all the negativity you have, I surely wouldn't want to have you as my role model. The rest of the world is already negative enough, and I would already be dealing enough with my own limiting beliefs; I surely wouldn't need to be limited by yours.

    I don't care, I'd rather start a petition to shut those goddamn idiot princesses up, Frozen became unbearable by the 10 minute mark.

    And mermaids aren't real. There's a reason they're called fairy tales....

    It's a cartoon AND a role model.

    If you think parents are the only role models a child has, or that children are capable of ignoring the myriad of role models that are present everywhere, then I'd suggest you have unrealistic ... perhaps even cartoonish ... expectations of how these sorts of things influence young minds.
