Disney Princess Gets Makeover
By giving Merida a makeover to be inducted into the Disney Princesses, it sends the wrong message to young girls. It is absolutely atrocious. Young girls are hit with images of what they should look like every day through a variety mediums of media. Telling young girls that they must be thin and pretty in every aspect is a delusion that causes young girls to develop eating disorders and poor self-confidence!
For someone to say that to be a princess of course they need a makeover is ridiculous. We should accept women and young girls the way they are and not force them to conform to be what society deems them to be.
The reason Merida was so popular was because she was an average girl doing extraordinary feats. She was funny, brave and stood up for what she believed in. She portrayed a real person!
