Merida, Once Brave and Real and Righteous, Is Just Another Porn Princess Now

by

Just when it seemed Disney actually did something right with their creation of Merida, the fierce, funny, I-don't-need-no-Prince Charming-'cause-I-got-my-horse-and-bow-and-arrow hero of Brave, they've up and given her a "makeover" for her induction Saturday into the Disney Princess collection. Lo and behold, now she's sexy, skinny, hot - and lost the bow. Ugh. Many are not happy: Among them, A Mighty Girl has a petition to Keep Our Hero Brave.

"In the end, it wasn’t about being brave after all. It was about being pretty."

Whoah, how do they hold their heads like that?
