A 20-something girl from Canada with a love for anime, cats, cartoons, costumes, disney and adventure. Sometimes several of those at the same time.

I’m honestly the most transparent person I know. I’m honest and forward and wear my heart on my sleeve and don’t think it’s a bad thing. You can tell what I’m feeling by my style of text. And I show when I react positively or become afraid. At some point, I thought it was better to keep all this hidden and eventually I grew into my own confidence and believed the opposite. I figured if I’m this easy to read, it would help me read other people by their interactions with me. Sometimes though…I’m really not so sure.

I want to be to someone what someone is to me.

" We want more princesses of color!!!" …they say.

Mulan, Pocahontas and Tiana are the only fairytale designer dolls not sold out.

Everything comes down to profit, guys. And similar things come from profitable things.

Ain’t that the truth.

I realize…

Just saying. Disney is about money and anyone who follows the ‘dollmaggedons’ knows how fast they sell out. It’s rare that of the princess lineup, limited edition dolls ( with 5000 units or less ) last more than a day online. And there were three left when I posted. And it was Mulan, Tiana and Pocahontas. Disney obviously has a massive overview of sales and products but it still speaks to the volume of fan base willing to shell out the money that not everyone has and what they choose to spend it on. I’m not saying it’s a justifiable reason for lack of colored characters or merchandise but it certainly doesn’t make as much of a statement to the moneymakers.

I think the way you worded it led me to believe that you were trying to justify it haha

And that’s true but like I said, it’s not even a fair playing FEILD to being with. The princesses of color do not get the PR that the white ones do, even with limited edition stuff because Disney doesn’t care enough to give them equal PR in the first place. It starts with the movie and trickles down—PATF, mulan and pocahontas aren’t given the time of day by the head honchos, so why would fans care? Do I think it’s a racial thing? Yes, I do. And that’s not right, and capitalism is a cop out of an excuse to keep companies from making the progress they should be. If they put as much care into a princess of colors movie as they did, say, tangled or frozen, they’d probably fare off way better.

No no. Not justifying it at all and I’d like to see more progress too. It’s just that what a corporation /should/ do, varies greatly depending on who you ask. As a society, I think we can pretty much agree that companies should make more progress in racial representation. But if you were a business manager, you wouldn’t push for sales of ballet slippers if you sell 1 pair vs every gazillion pairs of combat boots. It’s not a justification of a fair reason, but that IS capitalism; the bottom dollar and playing it safe. Hopefully the change comes sooner rather than later, either from a consumer push /or/ a corporate ‘risk’ ( let’s keep high hopes for moana? )…but how likely do either of those feel? It was just a retail perspective observation about the only dolls still available though, that’s all.

One of the most overwhelming ( in a good way ) things for me is when someone asks you how your day was or hopes you have a good day. This person, regardless of who they are, is either hoping for an answer that your day was good, or hoping for it to be. It impacts them in no way, but rather, it’s a completely selfless and genuine display of kindness and caring. Even if this person can’t physically do anything for you or be there with you, regardless of how much they may want to, to make your day better…they still hope that it’s good.

It just makes me feel so appreciated that anyone would take the time to convey that, even if it’s just just a fleeting thought.

It’s the little things…
