The Princesses in Disney films are some of the most popular characters in the world. Little girls everywhere have at one time or another wanted to grow up to be one of the princesses, from singing songs with cute forest animals to marrying Prince Charming while wearing their amazing wedding gown. Snow White, Belle, Jasmine, Cinderella and the rest are considered role models, but has any one taken the time to look behind the dough eyes and catchy songs? Could it be that these adored characters are nothing more than anti-feminist propaganda? This list will show some reasons that you might not want your little girl to grow up to be a Disney Princess.

The Disney Princesses used in this list are the current lineup of "official" Disney princesses. Other Disney heroines like Alice (Alice in Wonderland), Princess Kida (Atlantis: The Lost Empire), Nala (The Lion King), etc. have not been reviewed, so please do not feel slighted because Megara or Esmeralda did not make the list and you believe they are worse role models than those present.
