I understand that Pocahantas is a pretty good portrayal as well.

...and be "normal" like everybody else's kids......

We were cleaning out the garage today and my husband found dd's old Ariel (Disney's The Little Mermaid) dress-up shoes. She has forgotten all about them but dh asked what was wrong with them. I told him I have since learned/decided that most Disney characters, IMO, were presented in a highly-sexualized manner and I didn't need our dds to be exposed to that (2 and 4 yrs). He said that they wouldn't notice such a thing, that it would just be "fun" for them to see these characters and be "normal" like everybody else's kids. I told him I didn't approve but was caught off guard and haven't yet pulled together the words to tell him my thoughts. Anyone else have this trouble, like with in-laws or something?

"no hint of a bosom"? Why is that ok? I mean The Little Mermaid was 16..you have boobs by then and I thought the sea shells were quite fetching. And I LOVED Ursula!

I don't see why I should waste my time on Disney because "it isn't that bad!" LIfe is short. Not enough time for all the fun stuff.

Hey! What's wrong ith a teenage! ag
Mind you, if she were with me, I agree she could lose the seashell bra
|My daughter has a mermaid "thing" and wants to see "The Little Mermaid' but I won't move an inch on that issue. It's my favorite fairy tale from childhood and Disney warped it! SHE DOES NOT LIVE HAPPILY EVER AFTER WITH THE PRINCE! Though, she does live for ever after, and I think pretty happily.|
