Ugh, Disney Gave Brave's Merida A Pretty Pretty Princess Makeover

Merida, the boundary-breaking heroine of Pixar's Brave, officially gains the title of Disney's eleventh Princess today — one which, ironically, she would not give a crap about.

Dad Schools Dummy Who Says Buying Princess Movie Will Make His Son Gay
