The Search for Uncensored Feminist Truth (and Justice) is a dire one. At least 51% of the human population is being subjected to inequality, injustice and inhumane treatment. How can women stand back and do nothing when their fellow women are being oppressed and ignored by the powers that be?

In this journal I endeavour to bring forward (with facts and figures) the truth about how women are really treated in the world today, what we can do it about and how to combat injustice and lies that continues to plague women world wide.

Disney Princesses, Capitalism and Feminism

ENTERTAINMENT - Disney princesses don't slay dragons, play sports or go to university. Higher academics, athletics don't seem to be on their list of things to do.

Snow White, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Aurora, Ariel, Belle, Jasmine, Pocahontas, Mulan and newly added Tiana and Rapunzel... they have all perfected the art of being the damsel in distress. Even the bookish Belle, the runaway Jasmine and the resourceful Pocahontas... they all are beholden to having a man rescue them. Mulan is the only one that actually gets a sword.

Girl power? Don't make me laugh.

As a franchise Disney has done very well at selling clothes, toys, dolls to your kids. As cute as the little dresses are Disney's primary goal is your wallet.

You may laugh when your daughter says she wants to be a princess when she grows up, but what is she really aspiring to? Wearing pretty dresses and being rescued all the time? We all know there's no knight in shining armour. REAL relationships are about communication, mutual respect and spending time with each other.

There's also the health issue... all the Disney Princesses are anorexic. Do we really need to encourage our daughters to emulate the super thin?

Fairy tales have been around for centuries, little girls have always liked pretty dresses, and its no surprise little girls like them. But should parents be going out of their way to buy their kids all the Disney crap? Does the Disney Corporation really need more money?

Why not buy something that is good for your daughter's health and education?

This Christmas, I encourage parents to go out and buy their kids some sports equipment. Or something that will stimulate their brains.

The Disney Princesses may have beauty, but our daughters need more brawn and brains.
