We wanted everything they had. Beauty and The Beast- their relatiobnship looks so adorable, its actually very abusive on Belle's side. Cinderella- Cinderella does not go to the ball for the prince. Shegoes because the letter says allfemales are to attend. First off women should not on beck and call of men like that. Secondly, the prince just takes her and expects it to be normal. The Little Mermaid- Arielrisks her entire life, familyand home just for someboy she doesn't know.Eric only likes her to start off because of her body. Aladdin- Jasmine has veryreveling clothes on. They are tight, and show a lot ofskin. Nobody mentions howbad it is because in the movieit is just normal for women to dress that way. These four movies along will so many more have little things like this that even I hadn't noticed were so bad until now. It's crazy to think that the world is like this. All the stereotypes in these movies are based on the women. They influence theway all girls dress, think, act, and hold them back in lots of things.
