No. Not every girl is a princess. Some are the Red Queen of Hearts.


....AAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!! Bury this urban legend!!!!

The character in Lewis Carroll's Wonderland is "The Queen of Hearts". Period. The playing card, as well as the character from the nursery rhyme who made some tarts, all on a summer day. (As we see in the trial scene.)
The Red Queen is a chess piece, and doesn't appear until "Through the Looking Glass". She has no blood relations we know of to the chess-piece White Queen (who is rather sweetly dim, and uncannily resembles Betty White in The Golden Girls in both looks and manner), and is in fact friendly to Alice, albeit in her own overbearingly bossy and Hillary-like way.

The reason we have the confusion is not just because of the so-over Tim Burton movie, but because the so-over Burton movie actually started out as Wes Craven's movie version of the American McGee video game, which DID make the goofy confusion.
If you think the Red Queen and the QoH was one character who wanted people's heads off, you support Tim Burton movies. We can end this tragic connection in our lifetime. Please help, and give generously.

Well I had my fun with the queen couple of centuries ago... and you know we did cut that paper real deep, it was a bond only the imagination could dream of!

Princess sickness, it's a thing
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Princess_sickness

It's a big thing in Hong Kong, where you got teenaged girls who can't do the most basic of things. You got girls who didn't know how to make instant noodles.

No. I only treat modest and humble ones like that, but I treat everyone else like I normally do.

If you're talking about how women feel entitled to find a man that treats her like a princess, then maybe. Otherwise, no; everybody isn't a prince or a princess. It's all based on perspective. But our society being gyno-centric could lead to other perspectives regarding how we treat women, or "should" treat women.

Well, besides my confusion, I am reminded of something else....

....of course, keep in mind that I haven't seen this show. But doesn't Utena identify as a prince, even though she's a female? I thought I read somewhere that there is some kind of gender-identity stuff going on about Revolutionary Girl Utena. I don't mean anything socio-political or anything; I mean there's a lot of allegorical stuff and what-not.

Well whatever.
