A friend asked me if I ever wanted to be a princess and got surprised when I said no. I told her I'd rather be a queen.

Those Disney-type movies encourage girls to pursuit their dreams. The term "princess" is a metaphor for the girl's ambition in life - whether it is attaining fame or becoming anything they aspire to be. The happy ending in the movies represents achieving the dream. In other words, the movie uses the metaphor of a happy ending to tell that dreams and aspirations can be achieved if you never give up.
interesting to note that Frozen breaks from this, and the google-translated version of the song "let it go" is pretty hilarious - it suggests the polar opposite of previous Disney movies - to "give up".


Now, y'see, HERE'S the reason why male Disney fans will never understand female Disney bashers. (Apart from the fact that we watch the movies and they don't, and we don't get our movie/story facts wrong.)
We can understand (at least from a cold rational distance) the idea that little girls think "Princess" means "Being important", while bitter cynicism-milking adult females think "Princess" means "Auctioned off into a life of married slavery".
When your little girl wants an Elsa or Merida "princess dress", it's not because she's dreaming of being enforced into an outdated standard of chauvinistic servitude, and frankly, princes never enter into the fantasy...At that age, after all, what are princes but just icky boys who want to kiss you?

And if I can dig it up, that one blog article that fact-checked all the supposed "Feminist role model" gushing in Frozen (including the Running-Away-Like-A-Yellowbellied-Coward Song) was golden...Not to mention, was the object of an online wide demonization/discrediting campaign for every other feminist blogger to theorize about what the poster's "evil agenda" might have been, and how "inaccurate" she was because so many other people loved it, so there!
But one of the main myths busted was "Frozen doesn't have the heroine marrying the Prince at the end, that's so progressive!" As a matter of fact, out of 53 animated Disney movies, guess how many actually contained Happily Ever After weddings at the end:


For those who didn't read the spoiler, try this trivia on your favorite Meryl Streep sometime:
"Which of the following Disney princesses married at the end of their movie?: Snow White, Belle, Aurora, Jasmine or Pocahontas?"

Being a self-entitled stuck-up person of the female sex doesn't make a princess.

'Dis is a princess <3

Every girl is an imouto, and every imouto can be a princess of incest if applied properly.

All of them? :D

And I agree with you.

Why can't people accept that seeking relationships is both a male and female fantasy?
