I hate how people treat the old Disney princesses saying that they’re bad role models. People act like they’re worthless because they didn’t travel across the ocean to fight a sea monster or don’t have icy superpowers. Sure, their goal is love but what’s wrong with that? Is it wrong to be stereotypically feminine? Whether you’re a boy or a girl it’s ok to dream about true love and it’s ok to be kind and innocent. I love that we’re teaching kids to be independent, but nothing’s wrong with being a little girly.
I had a crush on the Baker from Cinderella (Anastasia’s boyfriend). Growing up I thought he was more attractive and cute than Prince Charming. And I still do, kinda.
When I first brought my cat Cinderella (Ella for short) home from the pound, she yowled pitifully the whole way home, clearly not liking the car ride – that is, until I started singing the opening theme from the film (“Cinderella, you’re as lovely as your name…”). She stopped crying when I sang, as if she knew I was singing it for her. Until the day she died, she always liked when I sang her that song, and even now when I think of Cinderella the princess, I think of my kitty.
The part where vanellope said she didn’t have a mom and most of the princesses said they didn’t either? I couldn’t help how proud I am that Snow and Cinderella disowned their own abusive step moms like that in front of the big screen. Like, PROPS TO THEM MAN!
All my life I have been compared to Cinderella and even given a nickname that is a combination of both of our names. Not long ago, I went out to a concert and met a guy and danced with him most of the night. I had to leave right before midnight because my family was calling and I wasn’t supposed to be there. I still secretly talk to him and am working on my Cinderella ending.
I feel like I missed out on disney a little. I’ve always loved the movies but I grew up poor in australia…I never had disney channel or princess dolls or other toys because it was all too expensive. I’m never going to get to go anywhere near a disney land. I take solace in characters like cinderella and tiana who came from nothing and hope maybe one day I can see all the disney movies and shows and get merchandise.
Cinderella used to be one of my most hated Disney princesses until I came to terms with the fact that I was jealous of her ability to stay positive and kind despite being abused. Now that I’ve realized how I truly feel, she’s one of my favorite princesses and I hope to be like her some day.
Anna, Snow White and Cinderella inspire me to be more forgiving and strong.
