What’s wrong with Disney?


Ordinary Fab Girl here. So in my R.S lesson yesterday we were talking about what’s wrong with Disney. So I thought I would actually blog about it! (Thanks Miss, for giving me the idea!)

By the way, I am currently listening to the prom soundtrack by Netflix. Does anyone else LOVE the prom soundtrack?!

Firstly lets talk about Snow White. In Snow White, Snow White’s job is to do all the housework and cook and clean for the dwarfs. The dwarfs don’t want her for her brain. They want her to look after them. That projects to young girls that there only job in life is to be a housewife.

In the Disney Film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, the prince kisses an unconscious girl. That projects the image that its ok for a random stranger to kiss an unconscious woman without her consent. That means young girls will grow up thinking thats ok.

Lets talk about the Prince. In the Disney Movies all the princes are white, rich and famous. That projects to young boys that you can only marry a pretty girl if you are white, rich and famous.

Also there is no LGBTQ+ princesses ( well people have theories buuuuuuuuuut none of them are confirmed). So what message is that sending to young girls? You can’t be a princess and be LGBTQ+. Are they trying to project Homophobia?

Lets talk about the six original princesses.

Aurora, Ariel, Snow White, Jasmine, Cinderella and Belle.

So only one of them is dark skinned and even that is seen as the quirky one. What does that project to young dark-skinned girls? You can’t be a princess because you are dark-skinned.

Now there are lots of other examples of racism and mocking peoples culture but if I listed all of them, this post would be a mile long. I suggest though that you do some of your own research because I think you will be shocked.

Also last thing but none of the princesses wear glasses. That’s telling young girls that you can’t be a princess because you wear glasses.

So that’s it for this post! Let me know what you think of Disney in the comments below!

  1. Nice post! So, I dunno if Mirabel from Encanto counts as a princess, but she has glasses…? 😅

  2. Amazing post! It’s true that Disney doesn’t project a good positive image for girls to follow.
    My friend and I were just talking about Mirabel from Encanto (newest movie) and how if she makes it to being a Disney Princess, she’ll be the first with glasses!
    Still, there definitely should be more representation of all different kinds of people.

    1. Ooooooh I’ve never watched encanto! However people have told me that Mirabel isn’t a princess. However even if she does make it as a princess, it’s 2022 there should have been a glasses princess years ago.

  3. I completely agree with you, Disney really needs to improve their diversity, or else what message will they be sending to young children? I always say that the media should reflect the world, but if they only show one demographic, the others will start to feel out of place – I’ve been there! Disney are such a great movie company, so I’d love to see them utilise that and reflect the beautifully diverse world we live in!

  4. Great post. I agree 100%, nice job for putting it out there.
    Have you heard Mad At Disney by salem ilese? It’s more about how Disney portrays love, but it’s still about problems with Disney.
