Things Feminists Hate: Disney Princesses – Pocahontas (Guest post)

The Snark Who Hunts Back

I was flattered when I offered to write this week’s Disney Princess post and the usual blogger accepted. “But who are you?” Well, I’m a young, twenty-something, wife of an active duty military member, currently living in Okinawa, Japan, and a strong Conservative. I hope that I do this series justice. I have loved reading them up until this point and am excited to be able to write one.

imagesI hadn’t seen the Pocahontas film in a long time, and while very historically inaccurate, not exactly a fairy tale and so never high on my “watch it again” list. However, I was so wrong in being as dismissive as I was toward it. Pocahontas turned out to be a very strong, independent, free spirited character with a great message throughout her movie.

Unfortunately, not everyone sees it that way.
