Ariel: Hot or Not? Or Initial Thoughts on the Masculine Mystique
Does that clam bra do it for you? Or are you more into blondes in subservient positions?
As you may have seen advertised around town, Disney is “opening the vault” and releasing The Little Mermaid on DVD.
I have talked to several guys that are really into Ariel (I assume when she has, um, legs). I personally have always been more of a Belle fan from Beauty and the Beast. I’m sad to see (what appears to be) the end of animated movies (Did you know it’s been 10 years since Toy Story was released), and I am glad that I grew up when these animated movies were in their prime.
I’m a little pressed for time today, but these Little Mermaid posters up all over have been reminding me of how huge the Disney Princess Collection has become with thousands of little girls all over the country. Interestingly, Cinderella is by far the most popular of the Princesses, and as you can imagine, it’s not so much the scullery maid costume that is a top seller with these little girls.
I remember reading an essay in college about the types of stories we tell children (and girls in particular) as they are growing up and how most of the stories little girls read deal with being rescued by men and rewarded for beauty.
I’ve even heard (or read blogs) where men play into that “princess” fantasy and women believe that because of their looks or sweet coo or whatever, they deserve to have a man spoil them and put his own desires on hold for her or perhaps, his desires can be fulfilled by just making her happy. Sort of a reverse of the Feminine Mystique, I guess…will give it more thought soon.
Enough of this, so which Disney character was your fav and why?
