Kids say the darndest things

Peanut made a pretty big call today.

She's been into Rapunzel lately, and as much as I find the whole Disney franschise painful for their shocking portrayal of female role models, I let her watch this one. It seemed to have a strong female lead. She has a couple of neuroses, sure, but she has her own impetus and is capable of rescuing herself. However, this feminine empowerment might have taken a step in the wrong direction in Peanut's young head...

Her take on the story? "No, Mummy, Rapunzel didn't live happily ever after, she went to live with a MAN."
