Cinderella Ate My Daughter...

This was a very interesting article to read, mainly because I am a female and can relate to this a lot.  I found it interesting when Peggy Orenstein stated that parents were having trouble with their children and raising girls with the view of disney movies surrounding them.  The main reason that I found this interesting is because I was not one of those girls when I was growing up.  I never liked girly things, I would have rather played in the mud with the boys around the neighborhood than play dress up with the girls.  The reason I can somewhat understand and see what Orenstein is saying about these females is due to the fact that my sister is 20 months older than me and she is the complete opposite of me.  Growing up, she always had to wear the shoes that made noise...she would always want to get ready with my mom when she was styling her hair or applying her make up...I was never like that.

I do find that these disney movies portray a very inaccurate upbringing for females.  They all show that you will grow up getting the majority of what you wanted and asking "Daddy" to get the things for you that are missing.  Also, these movies show that the princesses have a prince charming in their future....(I'm still waiting for mine to come around)

This video is from the disney princesses and mean girls, it is showing that they are relatable...

  5. i do agree with you where you say "I do find that these disney movies portray a very inaccurate upbringing for females" like where people say you can be anything you want to be... no sorry you cant be a princess (even though i always wanted to be one )... and that video is very funny and true. i really did laugh out loud.
