What happens to Disney princesses after happily ever after.
This is amazing.
I can’t get over how amazing his timing is.
The only thing that has bothered me while going throughout your blog is “whitewashing”. This blog is based on racebending and that’s great, but saying that it’s wrong to “whitewash” a character is a bit hypocritical. What If a little girl, who was white, really identified with Jasmine, would it be wrong for her to imagine her white? They’re plenty of people on here who have sent you messages saying they wished Cinderella was their race. Your blog is great, but It can be hypocritical.
First, whitewashing is wrong.
Whitewashing of characters of colour is ubiquitous, and it is often unnoticed precisely because we see Whiteness as the norm and White people without race. This is racist, and it’s wrong, and it clearly demonstrates how the narrative of the post-racial society is simply a tool used to silence people of colour when they call others on their racism.
Second, let’s say this little girl grows up. Let’s say she watches Aladdin with some friends. Let’s say her friends include some women of color. Let’s say she comments on how Jasmine was her favorite princess as a kid, and how she used to imagine Jasmine was white so that she could dress up like her and look the part.
“Well, Jasmine was my favorite princess too,” one of her non-white friends says, “because she was the only princess who looked like me.”
“Mine was Mulan,” another friend says. “She was the Asian princess, so hers was the only costume I thought I could wear.”
“I wish there was another Asian princess,” adds a third. “Asian doesn’t mean just Chinese.”
Your little girl is confused. “You guys don’t get it! She was the princess I really loved because she was brave and clever. Why couldn’t she just look like me?”
Her friends stare. “You already have princesses for that. You have Snow White and Aurora and Cinderella and Ariel and Belle. And now you have Rapunzel, too. Why does Jasmine need to be white for you to like her?”
Your little girl starts to speak, then stops. Her friends continue.
“What’s wrong with looking up to a princess who looks like us?”
Imagine your OTP when their height difference is great enough that Person A always had to lean up on their tiptoes to kiss Person B; or Person B picks Person A up to kiss them.
i mean come on really

ALSO I MAY OR MAY NOT BE IN LOVE WITH COLETTE.
I remember Meg’s story very clearly. She was in love with a man before Hercules. When he died, she sold her soul to Hades just to bring the man back to life. Once he was alive again, he left Meg for another woman, even though she gave up her soul for him. Of course this would scar Meg, which was why she couldn’t trust men, especially with her heart. Disney used to be so deep and meaningful, what happened?
With Ariel’s birthday fast approaching, the girls pitch in to bake her favorite pie. Cinderella and Belle look up the world famous recipe in a cook book. Tiana and Aurora pick the freshest berries to compliment the pie. Rapunzel and Snow White bake endlessly until it’s just right. Meanwhile, Mulan and Pocahontas decorate the palace for the big party. Little did they know, Ariel was more fascinated with the fork than the pie.
Hahaha, this is cute!
