Petitioning The Walt Disney Animation Studios

Make Plus-Size Princesses in Disney Movies!

I'm a Junior in high school named Jewel. I made this petition because I'm a plus-size young woman, and I know many plus-size girls and women who struggle with confidence and need a positivie plus-size character in the media.

Studies show that a child's confidence correlates greatly with how much representation they have in the media. It's extremely difficult to find a positive representation of plus-size females in the media. If Disney could make a plus-size female protagonist who was as bright, amazing, and memorable as their others, it would do a world of good for those plus-size girls out there who are bombarded with images that make them feel ugly for not fitting the skinny standard.

(ну и всякое такое прочее)

Мне вот интересно, почему эти самые young women не комплексуют из-за того, что в сказках, например, бывают волшебники. Или что там животные разговаривают. Или что у героев там практически не бывает угрей. Почему они спешат примерить на себя телосложение и цвет кожи и огорчаются от того, что не стройняшки, а не от того, что не умеют колдовать, летать, скакать на лошадях и проч. Что за избирательный натурализм в восприятии?
