disney affirmations

feministdisney:

“Have you seen Disney’s I am a Princes video? Very positive message:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qUGnu0gXtn4 ”

— allye93
Umm haha it’s okay but I’m not sure I’m suuuper into it.  It’s kind of like something I would give a cookie for, but not a cake.   Is it positive that they are defining “princess,” in this video, as something more internal rather than marketing it as a frilly dress and a demure personality?  Yeah, it’s positive.   On the other hand, I just want to be like, yawn. It’s not revolutionary to show a bunch of girls doing sports and “being brave” or whatever- it’s only revolutionary for Disney or for someone time traveling from the American 1940’s.
And I had to laugh/agree with this one comment: 

“Making animated shows and movies where girls are at least 50% of the characters (instead of the not even 1/4 as it currently stands) would do a lot more for girls than a million of these short, twee affirmations.”

“I am a Princess. I think standing up for myself is Important. I think standing up for others is more Important”
It’s basically a collection of safe, positive phrases that most girls hear 1000 times during their childhood.  And that doesn’t mean it’s bad to hear such things, but it’s not enough to just stick a “You are strong you girl!” label on everyone and then decide they’ve been given enough to cope with this world.   Our girls of the world don’t need to be told compassion makes them strong.   They need us to make the world a safer and more fair and compassionate place, for them.  
 The problem is never that girls aren’t being told often enough to “be confident in themselves” etc., the problem is that there are so, so many forces combining to stop them from feeling that way in the first place.

I’ve gotten 4 hours of sleep in the last 3 days and I’m stuck in a plane terminal right now though so maybe I’m being grumpy…

It doesn’t matter if you’re the best this or the best that in wwe. There is a glass ceiling and nobody is allowed to break it. That’s the simple story of wwe: the more popular you are, the more money you make. That’s why Cena gets title shots. That’s why a serious grappler like Daniel Bryan puts a smile on his face and uses catchphrases. That’s why a 400lb monster named Brodus Clay gets in the ring to shuck and jive. That’s why an invisible kid little jimmy is more of a fit on raw than Tyson Kidd.
