Princess or not. Learning to fight is essential!
King Fergus – Brave
[The wife and I went to see Brave last night. Fergus and I would get along quite well. I was glad to see Disney break the traditional mold for their princesses. The line above combined with the following absolutely made me fall in love with this movie:
But I thought princesses shouldn’t have weapons? – Princess Mérida
Which in context was down right awesome and hilarious! But you’ll have to go see it. It’s definitely worth it, you’re either laughing, going “look at them, they’re so cute”, or going where did that damn dust come from.
Seriously I don’t know what some of these critics are smoking. My suspicion is they prefer pop culture for their girls instead of geek culture… and if you don’t know what I’m talking about, let me educate you in graphical form.
Yeah, that about sums it up. –B]

Sigourney Weaver needs to be in row 2.
Actually there’s multiple versions of this roaming around. I’d much prefer Weaver in row 2 over that fiasco that was ST: Voyager.
Heh. I’ve taken to calling my daughter “Princess” (derisively) when ever she complains.
“It’s too hot out to mow the lawn!”
“Shall I sit Princess down, give her a cool drink, and fan her?”
Stuff like that.
You should check out “Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind”, and any other movie by Miyazaki, if you are looking for strong female characters. They have a more “eastern morality” for lack of a better phrase, but they are very well done, and have made a great base for conversation with my daughter to compare to the more normal Disney Princess. She loved “Brave,” too.
