Retro Sarah Haskins: Disney Princesses

So this long weekend I watched a lot of Disney movies, because I’m awesome, and I have to say Sarah Haskins pretty much gets it. It’s a debate that we’ve had before, about commercials and cartoons and even videos, but one I love to have since it’s a pretty basic part of most of our childhoods. Happy watching while I make up for all of my procrastination!

    Very funny. And pretty true. Why can’t women be happy WITHOUT their Prince Charming to save them from evil spinsters??

    I think Mulan was the only one who lasted 40 minutes before falling in love with the guy, I remember she kicked his butt a couple of times also. Now that’s what I call a princess!

    Miss Sarah Haskins, Infomania isn’t the same without her. Yes Julie, you are awesome. Did anyone see the latest “That’s Gay” segment on Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell???
    How would ya’ll think of a lesbian Disney Princess story???? Any questions?

    haha “No not the statue of the guy I just met!!” hahahaha. I love Sarah Haskins.

    Haha, that’s AWESOME. I loved it! I wrote my graduate school thesis on Disney Princesses and I really could have used this back then. It fits in really well with all of the things I wrote!

    Oh yeah, Sarah Haskins is awesome, and I agree with toongrrl that Brian Safi is too. And a queer Disney movie? Us queers are everywhere, babe. There’s speculation that the original Fa Mulan was an ftm trans guy, and even the bible has queer characters. That said, I’d totally love more queer love stories that don’t end in heartbreak as cautionary tales, and just more happy endings for queers in general.

    Hahaha, this is great. Guess I’m going to have to invest in some purple eye-shadow and practice my cackle.

    @Steph
    I promise on my copies of “Where the Girls Are” and “Full Frontal Feminism” that the comtemplating queer disney flick will have a happy ending for the protagonists!!!! This will not be a queer “Bridges of Madison County”!!! Remember when queers can go into Nick shows under the fanatics radar??? Principal Wartz in “Hey Arnold!”, Rocko and Filberts’ temp wedding in “Rocko’s Modern Life”, and the Principal in “Pelswick” swooning about Leo deCaprio

    This video clip was hilarious. I’m working on starting a Disney class at my current school which I’m hoping will discuss the different themes and obvious messages conveyed through disney movies and this will be a great piece to show.

    Interesting but I find it rather significant and telling that she 100% IGNORED “Beauty and the Beast” which taught about looking beyond the exterior and she most definitely DIDN’T have “daddy issues” (although I’ll admit she “wanted adventure”). Of the Disney Princesses (up to Tiana that is) she had been the closest to a “feminist” character of the Disney characters (I know that’s not saying much).
