My mother (a self-proclaimed feminist) used to read me "The Paper Bag Princess" by Robert N. Munsch. It's a good example of a fairy tale without a typical princess (she rescues her prince, then calls him a bum after he tells her that her hair and clothes are a mess). Funny, with a princess we can admire.


Ariel doesn't "exchange her voice for legs to get a man". Eric is another exciting part of the human world she has dreamed of all her life--in "Part of Your World", she doesn't sing to Eric but to the entire world on land. Plus, she takes her drastic measures in rebellion against her destructive father. So, why is everyone so eager to *%$# on The Little Mermaid?


I think you pick heroine's that have the traits you admire or embrace. If you believe that love is the most important thing in life than what Ariel did was wonderful, romantic and purposeful. Jane Austin always provided smart herione's with yet the same thing about love.
