Disney Princesses Reinvented as Disney Princes

If you’re looking for potent symbols of conservative femininity, you could do a lot worse than the Disney princess — it combines demureness, materialism, unattainable expectations, all pink everything, and pretty much every other trope that’s driven feminists up the wall over the years. And, of course, the archetype has made Disney a shitload of money. As such, they’re also symbols that are ripe for subversion —  now, art Tumblr Let There Be Doodles has taken the idea further and reversed the gender binary entirely, presenting princesses as… princes. The resultant images are fascinating — iconic and instantly recognizable, but also shot through with a whole different set of gender expectations.
