I am not a fan of Disney princesses. I can deal with the
tiaras and the pink, but I'm disturbed by the sexualized visions of thinness,
the suggestion that to be ugly is to be evil and the promotion of extreme
body modification in order to get the guy.
Citing other challenges in a “crowded cultural battlefield,” the conservative American Family Association announced that it has officially ended its boycott of Disney theme parks and products initiated in 1996 over Disney’s alleged embrace of gay rights and the “homosexual lifestyle.”
