This is flat out vulgar! There are minors present!There are minors present
you know you don’t want to get in treble
Don’t be sharp with me, you know this is a bassless accusation.
I was trying to think of a reply but puns are just not my forte.
We need to put this joke to rest.
… and on that note, I’m done.
This was a perfect accent to my dash

Guys, our rage is on the msn.com homepage poll.
DISNEY. DISNEY, ARE YOU LISTENING???
she looks fine both ways to me :)
I don’t get why everyone’s flipping out. They look the same.
Really? Calling us dumbasses, Brandy? No they do not look the fucking same. Those car eyes? The fucking proportions of body to head that make her skinnier? Are you fucking serious? Disney you are pissing me the fuck off.
…. Are you serious? The only difference are the eyes and that’s about it.
Seriously? Her legs are longer by making her waist higher. Her waist is also skinner, making her hips just out more in an hourglass shape. Merida had a realistic body shape for a teen. Plus the glitz on a dress she obviously hated. Disney is saying she wasn’t “pretty” enough. Whoever has been on the artistic team of late needs to be fired. Rapunzel looks weird and Belle doesn’t even look like herself anymore, and the classic princess all look Barbie-fied. Being pretty is not a bad thing at all, but they are making it a priority in marketing, giving girls yet again more unrealistic role models.
When I was a kid, the only ‘princess’ I liked was Belle because she liked reading and was brave, but I never wanted her merch because she didn’t look the same as the movie. She was always in that godawful yellow dress that she wore ONCE. When Mulan came out, I was ecstatic, because I really connected with her. She was tough and out spoken and brave and resourceful. But all the merch shows of her is in the dress in the beginning, which she wore ONCE.
Disney told me that being “princess-like” was most important, and being a boy for much of my childhood, I thought that was bullshit. That was only one cool aspect of the girls. Not the most important. It can’t be what we teach our girls to focus on—the glitz and glamour over bravery and selflessness and and shit. Not every girl fits that princess type. So they are left feeling inadequate. Believe me, that psychological shit is real, because it messed me the fuck up. It took me a long time to learn how to look girly, because I associated it with an ideal I could never have or achieve and failing to achieve that ideal brought a lot of grief to my life.
tl;dr: There definitely are differences and I am surprised that as an artist, you don’t see them. But the point is the others do—a LOT of them CHILDREN and girls, who we need to protect from this kind of bullshit.
I agree with everything except blaming/firing the art team! I severely doubt any of these changes were their decision at all. :\ They were probably doing the best they could in … incredibly restrictive circumstances.
But considering that we can’t blame the artists, I am wondering who (or what) exactly we could reasonably pin the blame on, or how an unpleasant and widespread trend like this could be addressed. The only Disney merchandise I ever bought was plushes of the animal sidekicks (+every lion character). I could never really relate to the female characters save for Mulan, and even at a young age I noticed how jenky the merchandise looked compared to the films. XD
rocks dont move and they are happy
Why promote a company but not add a link?
Now that’s just cool.
