Let’s talk role models for a minute

Attached is a picture of the Disney Princesses which points out all of the flaws of each character. This has sparked some debate on Facebook over whether or not the princesses are good role models for children. It’s my opinion that they are not. I think there are better role models out there for kids. As much as I loved the Disney cartoons as a kid, I can see now how the messages that they’re giving kids can be 1) a bit old fashioned and patriarchally oriented and 2) could be potentially sending a dangerous message, especially to young girl-identified children.

Ok. Let’s open the floor to debate.
