13 Disney Princesses Ranked By How Well They Didn't Take Crap From The 'Princes' Who Tried To Save Them

They were all pretty badass!

76

Disney Princesses are the best. They are all warriors in their own way and they give inspiring tales! As years have progressed more feminism has been shown in their movies. So here are the Disney Princesses ranked by their feminism and feminine strength!

1. Aurora

Giphy

I actually love Aurora but she always listened to everyone else's orders until she met a man. She grew up her whole life being ordered around and showed little to no restraint on it.

2. Snow White

Giphy

Compared to the other princesses, she is more compelled to do what others want her to do. She doesn't necessarily have a dream.

3. Cinderella

Giphy

She is a bit more strong because she overcame the life she had. However, her dream was to get married and that was all she did.

4. Jasmine

Giphy

She is more of a supporting character. In the movie, Aladdin is facing more of the obstacles. She is however strong because she went against her arranged marriage. Plus she had a whole tiger as a pet!!

5. Belle

Giphy

She is strong because the whole town saw her as an outcast and weird. She never let that changer her or defy who she was. But she still let herself be a prisoner, even though it was to save her dad. She was still strong and changed the 'beast'.

6. Ariel 

Giphy

This one was a little tricky because Ariel is a strong character. However, she is also pretty dumb. She changed her whole species for a man and didn't even talk to him. She did not think of the consequences with her family either. Prince Eric is pretty hot though so I somewhat understand!

7. Pocahontas

Giphy

First off let me say that she is GORGEOUS! She is strong because she tried to unite her tribe and the new settlers. She wanted to end the fighting between them. But she did fall in love with the enemy. She trusted the foreigners which turned out to eventually not be a good thing. She trusted on love for John Smith.

8. Rapunzel 

Giphy

Rapunzel is a bit more strong because she was not as easily trusting as the other princesses. She immediately defended herself against Flynn. That frying pan tho! She was innocent though because she had never left the tower and before now she never tried to.

9. Merida

Giphy

This one was hard too! Merida defied gender roles and defended herself against all the things her parents wanted her to do. Plus I just love her accent. Even though she did defend herself, she did do something hasty based on raw emotion. Which made it bad for her mom. She in a way only thought of herself and did not care about the kingdom.

Giphy

Tiana was is most ways a strong woman. The time period that the movie was in, everything was controlled by men. She however was the breadwinner of her household. She had 2 jobs and she was saving money for her own business. However, it was not really her dream but more so her late father's dream. She worked towards that and not once did she do anything for herself.

11. Mulan

Giphy

It is obvious Mulan is high up on the list. She literally eludes feminine strength. She changed her gender and fought in a war just so her father would not have to. She also proved she was just as strong, if not more, than the other soldiers.

12. Elsa

Giphy

So I know she is a queen but the coronation was the same day so I am going to consider her the official princess. Elsa was so unbelievably strong. She kept her powers hidden for years to protect everyone else. She also was willing to take over the kingdom even though she has not been around people for years. Elsa realized that she was her own person and did not let her powers define who she was.

13. Moana!

Giphy

Opposed to Elsa, Moana had no influences that made her want to not save her people. Elsa had a big emotional influence which was Anna and because of that she blindly. Moana did everything she did to feed her people. She was up for the task of being chief and that is why she risked her life for her people. She did not want to knowingly let her people die if there was anything she can do about it. Plus she has no love interest! (Elsa either). And her pig is cute. She was the most realistically figured princess too. And she was a POC!


In conclusion, they are all great princesses but they don't all radiate the same amount of feminism. These were the hardest decisions I have ever had to make!

I was never really big on cocktails. Tequila soda is always a go-to drink for me because of its simplicity and, to be honest, lack of extra calories from mixers chock-full of sugar, chemicals, and other unknown ingredients. I like tequila, and like to be able to really savor it.

This all changed when, a couple of years ago, a friend of mine made me a margarita from scratch — no funky mixers involved — and it tasted incredible. It was light, refreshing, and complemented the tequila without overpowering it.

I was blessed with thick, full hair up until my late teens. At the time, I cursed my hairiness — this was before full eyebrows became trendy or cool, and were instead a point of bullying many of my fellow full-browed teens can relate to.

Later in my 20s, hormonal stability was something I was thankful for, though a major side effect ended up being hair loss — on my head, lashes, and brows. I now find my filling in my brows on an almost daily basis. As much as I enjoy toying with and testing out different brow-filling products, it'll never be quite the same as being able to have "I woke up like this" full, Gigi Hadid-esque brows.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.
