More random Disney-related thoughts!!

I have always loved the movie “Lady and the Tramp”. But, as with most movies, there are things you don’t realize as a child that you notice once you’ve grown. And I realized something that made me love the movie even more.

The character Tramp, the male lead. If you think about it, the word “tramp” is just an old-fashioned/ more kid-friendly version of “slut” (tramp has many definitions, but one of them is “prostitute or person regarded as promiscuous”). And that’s what he’s sort of implied to be. Heck, they have an entire scene dedicated to calling him out as a man-whore (the pound scene where they mention all his past girlfriends anyone?). AND YET, he is the hero. He is shown to be heroic, and in the end he falls in love and settles down with Lady. And even though it may not be so blatant to little kids, I still think it’s a good message. That being “promiscuous” doesn’t make someone a bad person, nor does it mean that they can never fall in love or settle down if they find the right person. 

*Shrug* I dunno, I think of these things sometimes and they make me happy. :P

“It is not precise to call Hatshepsut a queen, despite the English understanding of the word; once she took the throne, Hatshepsut could only be called a king. In the ancient Egyptian language, the word queen only existed in relation to a man, as the “king’s woman.” Once crowned, Hatshepsut served no man.”

We’ve got a brand-new essay on the kick-ass, cross-dressing Egyptian ruler Hatshepsut. Just don’t call her a queen.

The ashes on the table are meant to be a halo?


No. No I. I cannot handle this.

Am I the only one who was, until this episode, convinced that if an archangel died they’d have multiple sets of wings in their scorch marks?

Random thought. I know everyone talks about when Disney will make a movie with two princes, and I am 100% ALL FOR IT. However, there is something else I would also like to see from Disney also.

I want a plus-size princess. 

BUT HERE’S THE THING. If they did this, I wouldn’t want her size or weight to be mentioned at all. In any way. Nothing.

Imagine any of the Disney princess movies, but if the princess was drawn plus-size. Imagine if Snow White, the fairest of them all, was a size twelve. Or Cinderella, or Belle, or any of them. I want a movie where the girl struggles, sure, but I don’t want a plot centered around overcoming prejudice because of their weight. I don’t want it mentioned. I want them to have some other conflict, I want the prince to call her beautiful and fall in love and his family to disapprove because she’s a different class, or has a different personality, or is from the wrong family. I want Disney to make a script for a normal princess movie and then draw her plus-size. I want little girls to learn that it is okay and normal to have a different body size without even realizing it. I want them to have a role model who has all the qualities we want to teach them, same as all the other princesses, but who just so happens to have a wider waist than the others. 

Am… am I the only one who thinks this? 

I’d love to hear other opinions (agree or disagree). :)
