Girl, 4, Says 'Aladdin's Princess Jasmine 'Needs to Go See the World by Herself'
A 4-year-old girl is the latest feminist icon after she was caught on video saying Princess Jasmine from "Aladdin" does not need a man to see the world, as she can do it on her own.
According to Madison Jane, a princess does not need a prince to take her around the world, because she is fully capable of doing that on her own. The 4-year-old was firm on her stance even before she watched the new live-action movie by Disney, saying a woman "doesn't need a boy to take you to see the whole world."
An Interesting Conversation
After having an interesting conversation with her daughter, the proud mom made sure to document the whole thing as what her daughter was saying was wise for her age. According to Madison,
“Jasmine needs to go see the world by herself because Aladdin needs to just stay there and Jasmine can just go by herself.”
She adds that both Aladdin and Jasmine can just go alone, especially since it looks like they both can't fit in the carpet.
Meanwhile, when her mom asked whether or not it's good that the prince always comes to a princess' rescue or saves the day, Jade was firm in saying that this is so far from the truth. To her, women do not need men to save them as they can save themselves.
"A princess doesn't need a prince to rescue her. She can rescue herself."
Now, the viral post has been liked by more than 72,000 people. However, the concerned mom made sure to disable comments on the post to avoid her daughter from receiving any unpleasant or harmful comments from strangers on the Internet.
Regardless of whether or not people can share their thoughts about what the little girl said, though, one thing's for sure: at such a young age, she definitely is an empowered woman and it's a good thing she's able to empower others through her words as well.
