"someone who is beautiful and gets to do whatever she wants all day"

So if Thor is a woman now, and Marvel is a Disney subsidiary, does that make her a Disney Princess? For Tor.com, historian and geek Ada Palmer answers this joke question seriously and thoroughly while using it as a springboard to look at what makes a Disney Princess and what it says about us.

Same Face Syndrome

"I seriously believed that someone with too much time on their hands had photomanipulated some screenshots of Rapunzel and tried to pass them off as the official Frozen designs. After all, there was no way that a major animation studio like Disney would knowingly, willfully produce three princesses with the Exact Same Face." -- Why do the Frozen heroines Anna and Elsa have the same face, a face they share with Rapunzel?

Disney Isn't "Brave" Enough To Leave Princess Merida As Is

Merida, Pixar's "Brave's" red-headed heroine will be crowned Disney's 11th princess on May 11. And just in time for her royal coronation, she has been given a "Victoria's Secret" makeover. This makeover has caused some outrage in the blogosphere, and has even inspired a change.org petition launched by A Mighty Girl, a girl's empowerment website.

A half-marathon officially designed "for a princess earning her glass running slippers or a woman who runs her kingdom already."

The existence of male runners in women's races have some worried: Interlopers Run Amok: Guys Crash Road Races for Women. They Come in First, Are Dissed at Finish; For Meeting Fit Females, 'It's Hard to Beat.' But for others, it's the races themselves that are the problem: Marathon organizers are also doing their part to 'discourage male interest' ... 'We're making this race so girly that men won't want any part of it' — and, of course, plenty of women won't either. It seems rather ironic for a woman who has proven her physical strength and endurance to be rewarded by being treated like a dainty little princess.
