What Princesses Taught Me

I don’t remember who, but someone in my facebook newsfeed reposted this graphic:

Of course, it got a big *eye roll* from me.

I mean, come on. You have to try to miss the real lessons behind the stories that badly.

And I came up with those in, like, 5 minutes. It’s not hard if you think about it.

Which, I know, is asking a lot.

Now I’m going to go watch Beauty and the Beast.

Don’t forget to enter my giveaway!!


  1. They seem to forget these girls were beautiful on the inside, as well as on the outside. If Aurora and Snow White had screeched at their princes "You're late!", after the kiss, they might've been dropped sooner.

    And as for Ariel, she was completely unselfish, giving up everything she was familiar with, as well as her glorious voice (thus, she didn't need the adulation of others), just for love of Eric.

    Yes, an eye roll and maybe a chuckle for the first one, but I loved yours!

  2. The top one was written by some bitter feminist. I think you've got to be a miserable person to take Disney stuff that seriously and not find the love and fun in each of them!

  3. THANK YOU. I hate that first one. I'm stealing your version. :)

  4. Amen. I'm so reposting this. I've seen the first one a couple of times and it just annoys me.

  5. Amen! All those Disney Princess haters make me sad.

  6. The first one is so depressing! Yet these feminist types think that they offer some sort of freedom? All I see if is anger and bitterness, and that includes my experience with first hand face to face discussions with them too. Love yours!

  7. Holy geez. I'm sure whoever wrote that top one watched those movies as a child and didn't get what they wanted from life. Now they're bitter and blaming fairy tales for it. You can't blame your life problems on fairy tales, movies or other people. We make our own choices/decisions and that's what gets us where we are in life. These people are just sucking the fun and life out of things that many people enjoy...and for what? The sake of feminism or cynicism? Give me a break.

    Your version is much better and far more accurate. =) Disney princesses rock! {I say this as a girl who used to pretend she was Ariel. ;-)}

  8. I love your version!! I still want to be Belle "when I grow up." :D

  9. I really don't like that first picture. I never felt like those were the lessons I learned from those movies as a kid.
