It’s not a secret that I am terrified of fish. I am aware that this is a strange phobia to have, but I’ve recently met a few people who have it too. I’m not ashamed! People always ask me if cartoon fish freak me out, and the answer is no! Finding Nemo is one of my favorite movies, and I love The Little Mermaid, which obviously takes place partially under the sea.

Prepare for seashell bras, hair extensions, and the next makeout soundtrack for brooding girls everywhere. More
On this season finale of Wed Bed Dead, we’re getting heated over Disney Dads. We’ll be debating the merits of the miniature Sultan from Aladdin, the doomed but comforting Mufasa from The Lion King, and the surprisingly ripped King Triton from The Little Mermaid. We’ll grapple with a few of life’s greater quandaries: how do mermen and mermaids have sex with each other? Is it still weird to fuck a lion? We’ll figure it out together. More
This week, we’re discussing a few of the better known Disney princes: Beast from Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin from Aladdin and (wwwhhhhhyyy?) Eric from The Little Mermaid. The problems each choice presents are clear: Beast is a giant monster, Eric is a total d-bag and Aladdin wears a vest with nothing underneath. What to do? Will Beast’s enormous library put him ahead of the game? Or will all that erotic tension in Aladdin affect our decision making? More
Forget the usual cast of bland Disney princes. I was always partial to the sidekicks — they were funnier and more lovable than any prince with a case of the marriage blues. From Aladdin’s Genie to The Little Mermaid’s Sebastian, the sidekick often stole the whole movie with their big hearts and funny punchlines.
So call your fairy godmother to request some comic relief and excellent song and dance numbers. It’s time to rank Disney’s greatest animated sidekicks. More
And then the little letter-writer went out from her garden, and took the road to the foaming whirlpools, behind which lived the sorceress Dear Prudence – though who would call her dear, no one living knew. She had never been that way before: neither flowers nor grass grew there; nothing but bare, gray, sandy ground stretched out to the whirlpool, where the water, like foaming mill-wheels, whirled round everything that it seized, and cast it into the fathomless deep.

The first sexy version of a regular controversy this season involves, surprisingly, Ursula from Disney’s The Little Mermaid. More
Every little girl wants to be a princess, right? So in honor of Princess Week, I went to my daughter’s daycare to find out what the little ones think of female royalty. I spoke with eight little girls, ages 3-5, about why they want to be princesses and which princess is their favorite. More
Rihanna’s anticipated American Vogue cover is here. It’s a striking image in that she’s not the usual bony blonde actress covergirl, though I can’t help but think her pose is a bit awkward. The singer was shot by Annie Leibovitz. Tell us your thoughts! More
Disney? We think you’re sending young women the wrong message. Not about feminity, because we think it’s cool to wear impractical footwear and burst into song. We’re into that. Really. But these men? In real life, we’re pretty sure these … More
