Ok so it's a horrid title for a debate, but whatever. It was brought up by another member that Disney Princesses have turned girls into anti feminists, I don't agree but I was wondering on other people's thoughts.
My 7 year old daughter plays with Barbies and Disney Princess dolls (she used to have the dress up trunk until she got too big for the dress up clothes) She watches the Disney movies and her favourite princess is Ariel (She had to choose the one who gave up her voice to meet a prince *shakes head* Why not Belle? At least she was smart).
However she also is very good at math and wants to be a doctor (or a pet baby sitter and I haven't quite figured out what that one does) She runs around- mostly with boys because there are mostly boys her age in our apartment complex and plays Halo with her step dad.
So what that her favourite colour is pink and her favourite animal is a cat? I haven't seen anything showing that watching Disney princesses morphs a girl into waiting for her prince charming. It sure didn't do that to me.
Anyone else care to add their thoughts?
