Disney's positive message to kids:
OOC MUCK conversations sometimes go strange places. I'm Lulu; a friend is Karilei.)
Lulu says, "You know..."
Karilei says, "Hm?"
Lulu says, "...Really, the Lion King sends a terrible message: Brawn will win out over brains. It doesn't matter if you're ten times as smart as the big dumb brute on the throne; the doofy football-player type will always beat you up in the end."
Karilei says, "Disney tends to do that rather often, it seems."
Karilei says, "Little Mermaid: 'Defy your parents long enough, and they will eventually give in and even support your marriage to the finless bastards. :D'"
Karilei ponders. "We can make more!"
Lulu says, "Mulan: High treason is surely the way to win your leader's support and the love of your life!"
Karilei says, "Heeee hee hee."
Karilei says, "Beauty and the Beast."
Karilei says, "'If your boyfriend is violent, stick with him! He'll turn back into a prince.'"
Karilei says, "(Even if he almost kills your dad.)"
Karilei says, "(And then does kill your ex.)"
Lulu says, ""Aladdin: Lying and slavery are okay, so long as you quit while you're ahead...."
Karilei says, "Pirates of the Caribbean: 'How much morality applies to you is inversely proprotionate to the amount of eyeliner you wear.'"
Lulu says, "Hunchback of Notre Dame: You're ugly. You won't ever get the girl. Live with it."
Karilei says, "....augh my mind went awful places with Sleeping beauty. ;.;"
Lulu says, "Oh, dear. You'd better share."
Karilei says, "Sleeping Beauty: 'Remember, girls: You don't have to do a thing except lie on your back until your prince comes.'"
Lulu FALLS OUT OF HER CHAIR.
Lulu says, "YOU WIN."
Lulu says, "Hmmm."
Lulu says, "Hercules: Your daddy doesn't love you enough to let your girlfriend marry into the family. You'll have to abandon your inheritance and elope."
Karilei laughs, yes.
Lulu says, "Man, I'm just never going to top Sleeping Beauty."
Lulu says, "Ever."
Lulu says, "...Er. No pun intended."
Karilei was about to say.
Lulu says, "I CAN'T WATCH THAT MOVIE ANYMORE."
Lulu weeps bitterly.
