Basically, the summary is:
- The original character, Merida, is awesome, tomboyish, and was the role model that a LOT of mothers were looking for when it came to Disney figures.
- Disney marketing changes her because, fuck you, that's why.
- People are signing a petition because theyNot to mention she's lost her bow in the new version.object to what they’ve called the sexualizing of Merida’s image, in which the character now appears older, with a tinier waistline, sultrier eyes, a coquettish expression, tamed curls, and more exposed skin peeking out from a bedazzled, off-the-shoulder version of the constricting teal dress she so resented in “Brave.”
This stunt really, really pisses me off. I think she was a very, very important character, especially with today's day and age of starting girls out in a world where they can actually change their fate more readily than they were ever able before. I found this character to be extremely important and bigger than just a cartoon disney movie.
