"Everyone thinks of [fairy tales] in terms of poisoned apples and glass coffins, and forgets that they represent girls who walked into dark forests and remade them into their own reflections."

#also while there are a lot of problems with the disney princess movies#in terms of discrimination and lack of representation#and how they twist the original fairy tales etc#so many people forget that its a successful widely lauded franchise#based entirely on movies about girls conquering their fears#chasing and achieving their dreams and overcoming incredible obstacles (via intrajanelle)

"Did you never think, even once, that I loved lipstick and rouge for more than their color alone? I am a student of their lore, and it is arcane and hermetic beyond the dreams of alchemists. …Cosmetics are an extension of the will. Why do you think all men paint themselves when they go to fight?"

"

17% of cardiac surgeons are women, 17% of tenured professors are women. It just goes on and on. And isn’t that strange that that’s also the percentage of women in crowd scenes in movies? What if we’re actually training people to see that ratio as normal so that when you’re an adult, you don’t notice?

…We just heard a fascinating and disturbing study where they looked at the ratio of men and women in groups. And they found that if there’s 17% women, the men in the group think it’s 50-50. And if there’s 33% women, the men perceive that as there being more women in the room than men.

Disney teaching girls to be princesses the right way.

Shut the front door. Shut the back door. Slam the cupboard, kick in the trapdoor and blow open the portal to Narnia:
THIS. IS. PERFECT.

Today this is a disney appreciation blog.

Oh shit, you guys, Disney did something right.
