According to Panttaja, there is no evidence to suggest that the prince loved Cinderella or that she loved him. In the story, Cinderella is described as deformed, and with the magic of Cinderella 's mother, the clothes that Cinderella attends the ball in are magical and therefore cause the prince to see a beautiful woman. The personal qualities of Cinderella are most important and those are her looks, because before her mother 's magic, she was seen as deformed and not beautiful; so without the mother 's help, the prince would not have been interested in Cinderella. 6.

The story of Cinderella lead me to believe two things: in order to have a better life, I must have a boyfriend and that makeovers fix everything. Disney movies not only constructed my ideas of femininity, but they also imposed gendered sexuality on me at an early age through the use of patriarchy within these films. The message that a woman is lost without a man upholds the dominant social position of men and the submissive social position of women. Due to the emphasis on hetero-romantic love and the construction of heterosexual relationships as magical and natural, I learned to value my appearance as a little girl by wearing makeup, wearing nice clothes and styling my hair so that I could get my prince-charming, who would then validate my femininity. Moreover, my idolization of Disney princesses refined my knowledge on

The Brothers Grimm folk tales, typically known for their abundance of violence and sexual content, are completely opposite of the politically correct, picture perfect productions that Walt Disney is often associated with.

For example, in the original tale, the two step sisters are told by their mother cut off a toe and part of their heel so that the glass slipper will fit with the incentive that “when [they] are queen [they] will no longer have to go on foot” (Grimm and Grimm), and they do it. Disney, realizing the obscenity of the scene, omits these small
