5 Ways Disney Gave Me Unrealistic Expectations.
Disney movies have mostly been about women needing to be saved my men, falling in love with them immediately and then marrying them days later.
……seriously Disney? Not every woman on this earth needs to be saved by a man. Sometimes women are their own heroes and save themselves.
You, Disney have given me several unrealistic expectations about life, love and my damn hair.
Prince Charming. We all used to believe our prince charming would save us from poison apples, dragons, evil stepmothers, sea witches, or whatever the hell we’d come up with and take us away to live in their huge castle…. but now as an adult, I call bullshit. Where you at prince charming? Oh wait, he doesn’t exist. There’s no such thing as prince charming. Sure, there may be guys that have similar qualities and characteristics, but let’s be real – there will never be an exact copy of prince charming.
Perfect Hair. Do I even need to explain this one…?
The story ends on “They lived Happily Ever After”. So, after they got married they just what, died happily together? What the hell happens after? In real life we have bills, bills, more bills, fighting about bills, fighting about more bills, makeup sex, fighting, more makeup sex, work, work, working some more, having children, never sleeping again, fighting because you’re both exhausted, and trying to keep your marriage from falling apart. Being grown-up sounds like so much fun! Sign me up.
All “princesses” are 100% perfect. So, carbs don’t exist? Getting fat doesn’t exist? Not every single woman on this earth is skinny with perfect teeth, perfect boobs and perfect hair. Anna from Frozen gave me realistic hair expectations. Not the falling in love with someone as soon as their eyes meet, but they got the hair part right.
Why won’t outside animals come clean my house? They did a bomb ass job on the dwarves’ house when Snow White was helping clean, so where are they when I’m cleaning my house? I’ll even sing for them!
You’re disappointing me Disney. Now that I’m an adult and can point out all the bullshit from your movies, it’s time to step up your game.
