I still remember what my mother said to me when I was little and I told her I was getting married at 16 because that is when Ariel from The Little Mermaid got married. :wink:
While that is a good thing I wouldn't mention Disney in a positive light. :wink:
Well I put the wink smiley in for a reason. :wink: It was an example to illustrate that young girls growing up (even in modern homes) get a lot of mixed messages. Snow White married at 15, Sleeping Beauty and Ariel at 16...even in the modern (2010 Tangled movie) Rapunzel married at 18. We grow up seeing this, romanticized and everything, but then are told it is wrong. In fact, completely unacceptable.
So yeah at 7 years old I wasn't able to identify that Ariel was occult, Jєωιѕн, feminist, communist, not a real person...whatever...
