<p>Having the princesses of color not find love reinforces the idea that we have to strong and independent and aren’t needing of any support</p>

<p>But I do like it because it deviates from the norm</p>

<p>It might be cool if they had dudes in the movie who <i>were </i>interested and they had the princesses be like, “naw, I got shit to do, but maybe later!”</p>

<h2>This is actually a good example of the need for intersectional feminism.</h2>
<ul><li> it is very common that white girl characters have love interests and finding love be the plot line and basis for all their stories and interactions.<br/></li>
<li>It is uncommon for a girl character of color to be seen as a potential love interest, in need of defense by a male character and/or support from a male character full stop.<br/></li>
</ul><p>This is because of the history of social devaluation of woc and infantilization of white women.</p>
<p>Thusly:</p>
<ul><li> it is subversive for white female characters to not have love interests for once and to focus on strength outside of male attention.</li></ul><p>while at the same time </p>
<ul><li>is it subversive for woc to be love interests and treated with care and reverence and with support in relationships on screen. <br/></li></ul><p>The “norms” for two groups of women are different based on the historical interaction both groups have had to suffer under patriarchal and sexist/racist media. </p>
