I am thinking of a fairy tale,Cinder Elephant,Sleeping Tubby,Snow Weight,where the princess is notanorexic, wasp-waisted,flinging herself down the stairs.
I am thinking of a fairy tale,Hansel and Great,Repoundsel,Bounty and the Beast,where the beautyhas a pillowed breast,and fingers plump as sausage.
I am thinking of a fairy talethat is not yet written,for a teller not yet born,for a listener not yet conceived,for a world not yet won,where everything round is good:the sun, wheels, cookies, and the princess.
My friend at school wrote a whole essay about sexism in Disney - there are so many versions of these tales, and none of them imply the princess being NOT skinny, but I don't think it's required. Interesting the impact of corpoations? Girls need a different-looking princess to idolize...
This is lovely, and so true.
