I was going to make a vlog video about this but I wasn't feeling it. Anyway, has anyone else notice the lack of self-esteem in girls today?One of the theories in circulation is that it because of the lack of normal girls as female icons. There are a lot of beautiful, slender, and attractive girls in the media and then those who have little differences or are a little pudgy are made fun of and ridiculed. What is that going to do to the people with differences or are considered a non conventional beauty? But where does this standard of attractive women start? Well, my theory is that is starts with Disney characterization of females. NOW, WAIT!!! I love Disney movies and I enjoy a good sing fish or sneezing dwarf as well as the next person, but if you thing about it objectively, the representation of females in those movies sufficiently lack dimension. Of course there pretty and they have a legitimate problem but do they actually have a personality? Does Cinderella every yell at the mice? Does Sleeping Beauty ever just say 'No, I think that I am going to marry dancing and singing man in the forrest instead, thank you."? No, they don't. I suppose that they do have personalities but they lack hutzpah! None of them do anything that is attributed to a strong women. Well, Belle and Ariel kind of do, but both are a bit submissive. Also, what is with the aspect of a man in these things. It is like all of them need a man to survive; some of them even change their entire species just to be with a man. *cough* Ariel *cough*. It all just seem like a fishy plot to get girls to grow up to be beautiful girls who just try and get the guy and are a little bit daring, sometimes. I guess though I have fallen victim as I love Disney movies and always nit pick at my bodies imperfections. Maybe that is just a cures of being a girl in the twenty first century.
