Hi, I’m Geochick.

Welcome to my blog. What started out as a private blog to document our adoption journey has evolved into my journey through therapy and spiritual awakening. Without our struggles to build a family, I’m not sure I’d be waking up, and for that I’m grateful.

#MicroblogMonday - The Latest Disn.ey Movie

The latest Dis.ney Prin.cesses are anything but diverse, hardly surprising given the company's track record. That aside, we finally watched the movie Fro.zen, mostly because I've been struck by how X has picked up on so many pop cultural references and since he knew about a big snow monster and a snow man and the names of the princesses (?) without us ever uttering a word about it, I thought it would be fun to watch.

The snowman saves the whole movie. Without the comic relief it's overwrought melodrama squarely targeted at little girls. Complete with a transforming princess into a bonafide Bar.bie doll. She's the one everyone wants to be, and I saw plenty of the costumes on Halloween night, that's for sure. What struck me though, is that she was the most boring character in the whole movie. Her sister is far more engaging and full of personality. So why don't little girls want to dress up like

Because is blond. And skinny. And has big boobs.

Thanks a lot Disn.ey for perpetuating stereotypes.

Did I miss something? Educate me if I have it wrong, but I remember Bel.le and Ar.iel as interesting characters. was just...there to drive's story, but because she's the tragic heroine every little girl wants to be her?

I'm only happy that for once, a prince did not save the day. That at least, was a positive message.
