Quote# 78733

[Disney has announced that Tangled is the last fairy tale film for a while...]

The biggest reason cited for this change is that girls no longer view princesses and getting married to be the ideal.

“By the time they’re 5 or 6, they’re not interested in being princesses,” said Dafna Lemish, chairman of the Radio and TV Dept. at Southern Illinois University and a self-proclaimed expert in the role of media in children’s lives. “They’re interested in being hot, in being cool. Clearly, they see this is what society values.”

This is also what happens when Christians forget biblical truth and let Neo-Marxist, radical ideologies like cultural feminism run the mass media and change Western Civilization’s traditional Christian, biblical values such as purity, modesty and monogamous marriage.

Uh...that last sentence was a doozy. Felt like it came out of nowhere. Granted, this is MovieGuide, so I expect that a bit, but geez.

This is a good sign..it means the idea of monarchy has lost its luster in the hearts and minds of the population. Now if only the same thing about heaven and angels would happen.

Apparently fairies cannot be involved with anything beyond the Medieval Ages.

I'm trying to wrap my head around the phrase "forget biblical truth". There's no truth in the bible to forget...

Well no it actually has something to do with princess movies not appealing to boys. And Disney being a corporation likes to make as much money as possible off of their films. So the idea is to make films that appeal to both genders.

monogamous marriage

How many wives did David and Solomon have again?

marriage is not a christian value, it started with egyptian pagans, not every female can be a princess, also society values equal rights for all, which is clearly being spurned by idiots.

What?

...You obviously haven't been around little girls all that much (but please, don't start now!) Not that their beliefs are a bad thing, but you are a chauvinist prick.

"This is also what happens when Christians forget biblical truth and let Neo-Marxist, radical ideologies like cultural feminism run the mass media and change Western Civilization’s traditional Christian, biblical values such as purity, modesty and monogamous marriage."

Purity? Modesty? Monogamous marriage? From Christians?

Surely you're joking.

Since there are very, very few princesses in the world, and there are only two ways of becoming one (being born as one or marrying a prince), it's hardly a valid dream job option. There are probably more women brain surgeons in this world, than there are princesses.

Does the Bible say that all girls shall grow up to become princesses? I must have missed those verses...

Hey Mr. MovieGuide, the traditional 1950's-TV view of America never really existed, and is not likely to ever happen. So either get over it, or continue to live in your unhappy world bemoaning the evil you see everywhere.

I'm 52, grew up with Disney.
It's because they've covered all the Grimms and Mother Goose fairy tales in one way or another. The stories were retold over 40 years ago in cartoons either as plot devices or tradionally retold.

This weird agenda you imply is less likely.As for the basic princess driven storyline, you're full of it, must be a dozen modern movies with no fairy tales equivelant that are still about a princess.

How far will you people go to be upset about things that aren't happening and wouldn't be terrible if they did?

"“By the time they’re 5 or 6, they’re not interested in being princesses,”"

Better they find out early on, all by themselves that that's not a viable career option.

I don't want women to be princesses either.

Then boys are grown to believe that they are, and get shocked when they realize that females are only human too.

This is also what happens when Christians forget biblical truth and start paying attention to actual truth and reality.

Fixed.

I seriously cannot come up with a serious way to dispute this because I'm in awe at the stupidity.

That's not even true; Pixar's 2012 film, Brave, is an (original) fairy tale, and the female lead, Merida, will join the Disney Princess line-up.

And the Disney Princess merchandise profits rival the GDP of some countries. It's a billion-dollar industry; I'm pretty sure little girls still like princesses just fine. The only thing feminism has changed is that the more modern princesses tend to be more pro-active and worthy of being role models; this is a Good Thing.

Like Solomon's wives, the concubine of the Levites, etc.
