Cinderella, Cinderella, all I hear is Cinderella

Magnet #497 - Cinderella


I made the mistake of commenting on FlickFilosopher's blog that Disney's Princess Protection Program, wasn't terrible, as I mentioned here. Of course, of course, I got reamed by a couple of folks who were very anti-Princess, anti-Disney, anti-Disney Princesses.

Bite. Me.

I know there's an evil empire of commercialism. I know it probably sets womanhood back a thousand years.

You know what? I don't care. I love Disney's products, their movies, and yes, even their princesses.

If that makes me mindless, soulless and stupid, I don't care.

If that makes me, a single woman in the big city trying to make it on her own, less of a woman, I don't care.

They're fiction. If you can't teach children the difference, that's on you.

Mind inner princess probably wouldn't have minded a prince of my own to do my 6 loads of laundry this morning, or a BFF to bring me a pretty dress to wear today, or little birds to help me get dressed, or a horse-drawn pumpkin to get me to the post office, or a dwarf to carry my packages.

Or a fairy godmother to do all of the above.
Pin It!

I like the princesses, too. I have a bunch of their magnets (mostly Aurora or Ariel).

Heh. In an effort to spare a few friends, I decided to space the princess collection out, rather than do a whole week of them. So, I have Belle, Ariel, and Jasmine left. But, it's been fun to see them.

I did forget to post my favorite Cindy Fallen Princess from Dina Goldstein, though. This probably represents me more often than the movie does. Hahahah.

Thanks for posting!
