What do Disney Princes and Princesses teach our children?

Ah Disney. Admittedly I’m a fan, and Mulan is my favourite but I’m not that much of a fan.

I could talk about how when trying to find some children’s dress up clothes that the only girls clothes on offer are Disney princess outfits, while the boys could be cowboys or ninjas; or I could talk about how the idea of waiting for a prince is detrimental to young girls ways of thinking but to be honest, this cartoon (via Boing Boing) pretty much sums it up....
