I don't know if I'm alone on this, but I've become quite tired of everyone bashing the earlier princesses and saying they're bad role Model for girls. Personally, I think parents shouldn't be relying on fictional, animated characters to be the role models... but that's a whole different issue altogether. In this artikel I want to address the common complaints towards the princesses: waiting around for/needing a man, not being independent, etc...

Snow White:

I want to start with a reminder that Snow White is only 14-years-old. Face it, her story is no different than any other 14-year-old girl's: still lives at home, does chores, daydreams about the guy she likes. Keeping that in mind, it isn't fair to say that she isn't a good role model because she isn't independent; very few 14-year-old girls are. And they don't need to be, that's the point. And I don't like that everyone says she's sitting around waiting for a man. That's not true. Her step mom tried to have her killed. She had to run away from utama to save herself, but she literally didn't know anyone. She was fortunate enough to come across the dwarfs and they took her in. It's inaccurate to say she stayed in their cottage, just waiting for her prince. As far as she knew, that was her new utama considering her old utama was no longer selamat, peti deposit keselamatan and she didn't know anyone else. But, she pulled her own weight sejak cooking and cleaning. True, in the end she DID need a man, but that wasn't sejak choice atau anything. She was under a spell and couldn't exactly wake herself up with True Love's Kiss; even the most feminist of women can't pull off that trick. Blame the Evil Queen for Snow White depending on a man- Snow White had nothing to do with it. Snow White is, hands down, the kindest of all the Princesses. Yes, she was also naive; but she was very young and had absolutely no real world experience. She was just being caring and helpful to someone she thought was in need. If anything, we could all use a little bit of Snow White in us; true no good deed goes unpunished, but that doesn't mean we should turn our backs on those in need. In this case, Snow White was a very good influence.

Aurora:

There really isn't too much to say about Aurora since she actually wasn't in the majority of her film. She was a lonely girl. All she had was her family; no friends, thinking she had no real chance at Cinta atau much of a future. So, she daydreamed about the life she wanted and I think most people can relate to that. True, it probably wasn't smart to talk to a man she had never met before, despite the fairies' warning. But, let's be honest: if any one of us were in her situation, we would do the EXACT same thing. I mean, who doesn't want to dance with a handsome, mysterious stranger in the woods? Her only real flaw was refusing to tell Phillip her name, but being lebih than willing to tell him where she lived. As far as being independent, again, she was still young and didn't have much of a choice. The Pari-pari most likely didn't give her a lot of freedom and then she was forced into the life of a princess. And, like, Snow White, the whole needing a man to save her wasn't exactly what she wanted. She was put under a curse that only a Ciuman could break. There was nothing she could do for herself at that point. If anything, Snow White and Aurora only teach us that anda need a man to rescue anda if anda happen to find yourself under a curse sejak a witch atau sorceress. But, let's be honest: how often does that really happen nowadays?

Cinderella:

One thing that bothers me is when everyone says Tiana is the first hard working princess. That's not true. Think about all the stuff Cinderella had to do. She basically, single handedly took care of the house and held it together. If anything, Cinderella is the most like stay at utama and single moms (Without the kids... unless anda count the animals, which she also took care of sejak herself): overworked, never appreciated and completely under valued. Cinderella lived with her family and made absolutely no money: she couldn't leave and start her own life. She was as independent as someone in her situation could be. Technically, she did need a man to "save" her, but she wasn't waiting around for him to do so. She had very little control over her own life, but it was her life and she had accepted it. Of course that didn't stop her from wanting more, like everyone else. She daydreamed about what it would be like to not be a servant anymore and treated as an equal. With very little exposure to the outside world, she couldn't really meet a man- so her only option was to go to the ball and hope he would choose her. Of course, it can be argued that Cinderella could have just left and tried making it on her own. And that's true, she could have. But then that would have meant living in the streets until she somehow earned enough money to get her own place. But, let's be honest, hardly anyone actually hires homeless people.


One lebih thing I think everyone really needs to keep in mind is that Snow White, Aurora and Cinderella are women of very different times. Everyone is constantly judging them sejak how women are in the 21st century, but they're not supposed to represent women of today. Now, it's lebih common for women to have a career and her own life before getting married. But, if a woman wants to get married, have a family, cook, clean and take care of the house, that's totally okay! Everyone gets one shot at life and if a girl wants to be lebih like Snow White and less like Mulan, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. Disney Filem are made for entertainment with some life lessons thrown in there, but they're not meant to be scripts for your life.


anda can still be kind like Snow White and still sertai the Army like Mulan. atau be too trusting like Aurora and still stand up for what anda believe in like Pocahontas. anda can be the one taking care of the household every hari like Cinderella and still not need a man in your life like Elsa. Be whoever anda are and live your life the way anda want to; it doesn't matter if anda happen to be lebih like Snow White and less like Mulan. And don't let anyone tell anda differently.

Well I just realized haven't done this senarai yet, so I figured why not. My personal ranking of the princesses' outfits, and who better to judge womens' clothing than straight dude who barely even knows how to dress himself? I'll try to address each outfit of each princess. Well let's get this train wreck on the road.

10.Aurora
I know people are gonna give me hell for putting her at the bottom but I really don't like Aurora's clothes. Firstly, her peasant dress sucks to the extreme! The only good things about it are the corset and the skirt. Everything else is just boringly ugly, the color, the...

So keseluruhan the reaction to the princess redesign has been very positive. Minus a few cons I will discus.
I want to talk lebih about the subtle things the creators have put in which makes them special. So I put together this little review of the new designs
Keep in mind these are designed mostly for children's merchandise therefore yes the designs stray a bit from the original and the Warna may seem too bright but these are for sales purposes. So I won't be criticizing the parts put in for sale designs
(All imej at the bottom)

So lets start with Snow White:
Pros: Her face looks very pretty but...
