Redefining Standards Of Beauty—One Disney Princess At A Time

2014-02-03 13:57:00 +0530

What if Disney taught little girls and boys the importance of sensitivity instead of focusing on the waist size of its princesses? Here's an artist who's making it happen in his own way

The effect that Disney characters have on kids has been a hotly debated topic in parenting circles for years now. While some think of it as harmless fictional tales that childhoods are made up of, for many others, Disney's unrealistic ideas of what beauty means, the "rescue-me!" attitude of most of the princesses and the gender stereotypes that almost all the characters perpetuate have made them steer clear of the brand. 

But what if these very princesses could help teach kids about sensitivity in the real world instead of pervasively propagating Disney's clichéd ideas of femininity? The good news is, it seems to be an idea gaining popularity. Artists across the world are reimagining popular Disney characters and forcing them into the real world. One such artist is Alexsandro Palombo who recently released a series of artwork on Disney princesses with disabilities.

From Snow White in a wheelchair to Jasmine without arms, the Italian artist makes us see these cartoon beauties in a way we'd never imagined.  Because he wants to "give visibility to a problem that affects a great amount of people all over the world. It's a message against discrimination. A message to redefine standards of beauty," says Palombo in an email interview with us.
