Anonymous said: CLEARLY you have not read the real Little Mermaid story. All she wants is the prince. It's people like you who make me so angry about illiteracy. Get your ass out of your Disney dream world and start reading you ignorant shit
Oooh I was wondering when the anon hate would start when I saw my post growing and growing. Congrats, you’re first.
First of all, I’m aware of the original story. I admit I haven’t read it, but I’m a pretty busy person so the Wikipedia summary will have to do it for me for now. From what I’ve read, I personally prefer the Disney one. Ariel actually has dreams that aren’t centered exclusively around a dude, which is just so different from what we are normally fed as children. It’s inspiring.
Second, I’m not illiterate. I truly do not have time to read right now, as much as I want to. It’s hard to read for pleasure while doing both work and school. I read a lot before college. Now, I don’t have the attention span for it because “oh my god I have so much shit to do” is a constant track in my head.
The Little Mermaid was my favorite Disney movie as a kid, and it still is. I will not hesitate to defend it. I was talking about the movie in my post. It’s okay to only see the movie and like it while not reading the book. Reading a book does not make you better than anyone else. It just makes you sound pretentious.
