First of all, fuck you Disney. We should have collectively stopped you at Snow White. We all saw what was happening. And we are all responsible for allowing this bullshit to continue.
The first second we saw her meet Prince Charming and run around in circles swatting birds instead of going into her house- We should have collectively pushed that whiny, brain dead princess into the wishing well. But we didn’t. You loved her, and despite she’s only “medium pretty” you kept buying your kids her shit. I’ll tell you a secret: NO ONE WANTS TO BE HER.
These are the only BADASS exceptions to the Disney farce.
for example. She didn’t run away so she could seduce a man by brushing her hair with a fork. She went to war not ONLY challenged typical gender norms, but she made Shang question his own sexuality
Not this adorable and lovable (mother hating bitch) from Brave. MRSA or Sars or whatever her name was, challenged nothing except the flat ironing industry.
“Finally. A female lead WITH CURLY HAIR. Feminists unite.”
Enter Elsa and Anna. First, I have two daughters, so don’t get me wrong. I have been just as delighted as the people rediscovering intimacy in monistat commercials, frolicking freely in the waves, holding hands, laughing with perfectly white teeth. FINALLY. We get to see two women bond together and pick each other over a guy they literally JUST met. I’ve painted freckles on my daughter and stared into her eyes while singing tearfully about building snowmen.
I’ve braided my hair, and every who will stand still for two minutes hair, into that amazing Pinterest fish-tail thing she’s got going on. That being said:
In the true story of the Ice Queen, Elsa is a HORRIBLE, vicious sub-zero queen that embodies the essence of cruelty and pure evil. I know this because this was my mothers nickname for me as a child, “the Ice Queen.” You know, the one that was frozen, impenetrable soul. She made Malicifient look like a Goddard school daycare teacher. Disney whisks up Elsa and Anna, with the main ingredient being seizure inducing sparkles. And some flaccid story about some chilly bitch who can’t figure out how to harness the power of making frozen freaking margarittas (or wear gloves appropriately). It was incredible, and terrifying all at one. Little humans everywhere started frolicking in the streets, pulling their hair-ties out in defiance and transforming into a complete and total drama queen in a Lisa Frank designed castle. the child version of the book. Meanwhile, her freckled, delusional younger sister needs someone to sit her down and read her “He’s Just Not that Into You.” You’re a mother fucking princess, I don’t care if you haven’t seen plates or humans in a decade.
The moral of Elsa’s story is now- treat yo’ self- get that ice cube penthouse and live there in an amazing dress. THAT NO ONE WILL SEE. WHY ARE YOU ALL GLAMMED UP ELSA? You were borderline Amish before when people gave a shit about you, knocking on your door, asking you to feed them. Feed your sister, Elsa. Feed her.
Disney is the worst. And yet I’m still looking for the perfect wave to splash behind me.
