Walt Disney had a very warped relationship with his mother, and thus became obsessed with this hyper-fantasized "princess" idea that his company still carries on to this day - but SO MUCH of the Disney Princess concept is absolutely poisonous to young women. Almost every bit of the message they send to women is wildly inaccurate and unrealistic - both the expectations of female body image, as shown here, and the expectations of male and female behavior.
Tons of ADULT women (and not just late teens and 20s, but into their 40s) talk about wanting a "knight in shining armor" who will "sweep her off her feet" and "take her away from her real-world problems" where they will "live happily ever after." Or, the short version: "I want the fairytale!"
But life isn't a fairytale, and SO MANY women find a man, get married, have the big wedding they always imagined, and then (THE HORROR!), go back to their ordinary lives of jobs, bills, and struggles, and this is SO different from the expectations she's always had that she gets depressed, then eventually blames her unhappiness on the man (because he didn't give her "happily ever after"), so they divorce, and she can never figure out why she is never happy. Well, that's because she still actually BELIEVES that she deserves "the fairytale" that the Disney movies always promise, and always seem to deliver to the princess.
Disney movies are truly a huge part of the cause for all the confusion and unhappiness in modern relationships...
