Merida, this Fight,  A Mighty Girl, worth reading: Worth reading …

As I have said before, Merida was created to be a different kind of princess — a princess with a strong will, a stubborn streak and a lot to learn. She makes mistakes along the way and learns from them. But she is not obsessed with what she wears or focused on looking good to attract a man. She’s a young girl — not remotely ready to think about romance or marriage. That doesn’t mean she never will. That doesn’t mean that those things are bad. It just means that she is an individual who has her own interests. And that’s not bad, either! In fact, that’s exactly the way that children should spend their childhood and adolescence — being kids and pursuing the things that make them happy. That’s why Merida has become such a beloved character for so many young girls — and even grown women. Why on Earth does that image need to be changed?
