Ariel is the most offensive story I have ever come across. I cannot for the life of me understand why anyone likes it. Basically, the unsubtle message of the story is that if you are a female, it is fitting to change who you are and leave everyone and everything you love behind for a guy that you saw once, and who fell in love with you only when you were mute. And if you are a guy, you don't have to change at all.
I just don't get how this story line is ok.
And so now, Disney will pat itself on the back for having a "black princess" who will be portrated as a frog for the entire movie.
