Little mermaid was my FAVORITE!!! 

Seriously. my ALL time favorite. lol. 


Watching with DD a little while ago...seriously...its terrible. 

Her dad is an overbearing ass who flies off the handle and then acts sorry about it. 

Ariel is a defiant little girl who thinks rules are made to be broken. 


And Ursula...damn. not only does she call Ariel a tramp

but here are the lyrics of my favorite song that as a child i never quite got lol

You'll have your looks, your pretty face.
And don't underestimate the importance of body language, ha!

The men up there don't like a lot of blabber
They think a girl who gossips is a bore!
Yes on land it's much prefered for ladies not to say a word
And after all dear, what is idle prattle for?
Come on, they're not all that impressed with conversation
True gentlemen avoid it when they can
But they dote and swoon and fawn
On a lady who's withdrawn
It's she who holds her tongue who gets her man

Eh...it's just a movie. Almost all movies and tv shows when looked through a feminist eye are misogynistic. However, considering when this story is supposed to take place everything in the song is true. That is how women were viewed back then.

It's Disney, brah. Not a big deal. If you want one that's more women-empowered, watch Brave.
