I'm looking to get a discussion going, rate this question because that's awesome...lol
I saw this t-shirt recently that said "Someone should sue Disney for making every girl think there is a prince charming..." I thought it was pretty funny at first, then I realized that was pretty mean to guys and it's depressing to girls...
What do you guys think? I want opinions! :D
some of them are hilarious.

I don't think it is mean. It is realistic, well except for the part about suing Disney. I think the thought behind the shirt is that we expect there to be a perfect man. There is no perfect man or woman. We can find the right person for us, but he/she will never be perfect. Also, what is perfect?
I haven't met any men that act like Prince Charming. Then again, I don't think I've seen any Princesses either. The fairy tales and movies if believed can make you dissatisfied with the guy who doesn't do romantic things. I've only met two romantic guys in my life and neither one of them were close to what the movies show men to be like. I've found that I'm the romantic person in most relationships, that does romantic things often. I've been tempted to send flowers to guys... Uh actually, I have sent them a few times when I thought the guy would feel flattered by them.
I think men are discriminated against more than any other group (not in the work place though). We call them evil, say they all cheat, etc. There are some good guys out there. There are good women out there, too. I guess I'm saying we women are not all innocent and the men aren't all bad.
I don't think it is depressing to think that guys won't be like they are in the movies. We just have to learn to accept people the way they are. Treat people the way you want to be treated and never feel that by being romantic yourself or by being honest about your feelings that you are giving up some sort of "power."3
