Clap Your Hands for Tink
We haven’t really been too friendly since you started hawking all that princess stuff. In fact, I haven’t really invited you over too much to play with my daughter. I don’t mean to be rude but I just thought that your values and my values didn’t really match. Some of your princesses did make it into our toybox and they don’t seem to have caused harm, but I just don’t seek you out. I am sure you understand. I know some other moms on the playground have also been giving you the cold shoulder, but I also know that the princesses have a lot of devoted fans out there.
My daughter is very interested in Tinkerbell and would really like to play with her. So, even though we haven’t been close, I just have to ask: is Tinkerbell someone that I might want to get to know? She seems to be more interested in tinkering with machines than in finding her prince. And I can see that she even changes her outfit from a skimpy, strapless dress to pants -- and also sleeves, and she seems to have taken off her false eyelashes. I am hoping that she is someone who stays true to herself and doesn't change for a man, or gets overly interested in royalty.
I understand Tink’s new look has been receiving some complaints from some of your supporters, but after reading this post wondering about her sexuality, I hope you will understand when I say that you might be better off without them.
Did you hire a woman for this revamp? I know that wasn’t always your policy in the past. Its just that Tink has been through so many incarnations in her long life and I just want to make sure that before I introduce the two of them that you weren’t planning some kind of sexy, man-hungry revamp in the near future.
I see from this article in the NY Times that you are fielding criticism about your soon-to-be released movie about your first black princess so I will understand if you don't get back to me. Thank you so much for your time.
