‘Tired’ Dad Breaks Outdated Gender Stereotypes In Daughter’s Disney Books

“Sorry Prince, make your own damn nachos.”

There’s almost nobody on the internet that is not familiar with Disney Princesses. At least most of you have heard ‘Let It Go’ from ‘Frozen’ or know classic fairytales such as Snow White and Cinderella.

A dad from Minnesota got her daughters several Disney storybooks but found them stereotyping women too much.

He took matters into his own hands and made them more modern.

Cinderella stops being bullied and, instead of seeking a Prince Charming, learns to take control of her own life.

Did you know that the original story of many Disney classics came from the Grimms’ Fairy Tales? The original script to these stories dates back to 1812 when patriarchy rules very much among the society that still upholds one’s social status. Disney adapted these stories, dare we say, loosely.

She bakes cookies and shares them with the Prince. But look, man, these nachos are mine.

When Cinderella goes to the ball, who says the Prince was the only person attractive there?

Ariel had given so much (her home, friends, old life), now it’s time for her to enjoy pizza.

In actuality, many of these tales are a lot grimmer and dark than what Disney shows. The mature parts are taken out in the cartoons, blood isn’t shown, and the story emphasizes finding love and reaching a happily ever after. It’s worth noting that the stories undergo a lot of revisions and changes throughout time.

Brownies are good. But you know what’s better? Budget Oatmeal Creme Pies.

Merida bakes the cookies, but the kids need to learn some discipline!

Rapunzel can dream big, more prominent than baking a pie if she wants!

But Disney has original characters, such as Merida, who doesn’t have a romance plot. Queen Elsa is also confirmed to have no love interest while her sister Anna is married.

Without having to change, these movies are already showing that you can be who you are, without the need to rely on a man or be in a relationship to be deemed ‘successful’ in life. And doing good things shouldn’t mean that you’re being oppressed! But at the same time, are media over-emphasizing women being the carer in a relationship?

Many people found these edits creative and broke the shell that is a woman’s role in society.

Yet, some others don’t see how changing classic stories can help.
