Which will win?
Before anything else, I want to say that princesslullaby ran the votes and the countdown, I’m just écriture the article. So all credit to her.
It seemed that this was a plus difficult countdown than the princess one. There were fewer landslide eliminations and plus instances of people saying they weren’t sure who to vote for, and people in general seemed less certain of their choices. But, here is how people decided to vote. So here are the princes in order of how feminist they are as voted par Fanpop.
Charming does very little in his film. However, everything he did do seemed to be criticized par someone. He has a line of women in front of him and rolls his eyes and yawns. Those who voted against him complained that he wouldn’t even give these women a chance before écriture them off. Then, he saw Cendrillon and was immediately in love. This was, of course, a huge downfall for him because it showed him being shallow and viewing her plus as a prize than anything else. Even after talking with her, he doesn’t ask her name, and even though he is in l’amour with her, he can’t be bothered to go find her himself. Those who commenté in support of him, however, pointed out that Charming aimed his eye roll and yawn at his father, saying this was plus an act of rebellion than montrer anything about his vues on women, basically doing the same thing jasmin did setting Rajah on Achmed. They also pointed out that it was his father’s scheme to find the girl the shoe fit, not Charming’s. However, in the end he was eliminated par a landslide.
He basically fell in l’amour with Cinderella's face. That's not really equality to me. -Jessikaroo
But what influenced my choice the most was his unwillingness to go and find her. It's almost like he felt he's too good to go out and do the dirty work, instead if the girl is still interested, she can find him.-BelleAnastasia
well, we dont know about what charming and Cendrillon talked all the time, so i guess it is not just her face he liked.. also, the yawning part - he is in the same situation as jasmin -Safira09
Naveen Lost because of what a womanizer he is. Mainly, at least. People a dit that this showed he was treating women as objects and not taking their feelings into account. People also pointed to the way he wanted to marry charlotte for her money, and in the end when he has supposedly changed and thinks Tiana is great and respects her, his big sacrifice is the same thing he was planning to do originally. The only support he got from anyone was people saying that in the end his vues did change, so that was good, but he was still voted out seconde after Charming.
But if this based on the start then he is the least feminist but if toi go par assumptions on how his behaviour has changed since Tiana then he should be in the haut, retour au début 5 for being feminist -SweetPea2007
He wanted to marry charlotte for her money...he didn't even consider her feelings… He shows no regard for woman at all. -Swanpride
He's a sexist pig who was only interested marrying a girl for her money -JNTA1234
There was some confusion on seventh place. Phillip left the voting before Shang, but in the last vote and the information princesslullaby sent me he was seven and Shang was eight. So I decided to just put them both at seven.
Most people who voted out Phillip voted him out because of the scene where he first meets Aurora. People felt he was way too pushy with her and the way he grabbed at her and wouldn’t let her leave. People a dit he objectified her and saw her as a prize, and that he never saw Aurora as an equal but someone he needed to save.
I don't think he ever appreciated her as somebody equally capable of doing things as he is. –BelleAnastasia
The way he grabs at Aurora for example. –Jessikaroo
I adore him and I l’amour Phillip/Aurora as a couple, but he is a bit too forceful when they first meet. –Mongoose09
It isn’t much of a surprise that Shang is so low. The whole point of Mulan is how she has to work against the sexist vues around her that she and everyone else had been raised to have. So it is natural that Shang would have these views, at least at the beginning. Even some of those who voted for him a dit it wasn’t his fault, that he was simply raised that way. However, he did hold those views, even saying “Did they send me daughters when I asked for sons?” in his song. Those who were in support of him a dit that his vues did change, and that says something, but in the end he was voted out because he did montrer a low opinion of women.
He comes to see the error of his ways, but for most of the movie he has a pretty low opinion of women. –FlightofFantasy
He really looks down at woman. He almost kills Mulan just because she's a woman? What's the matter if she's not a man but she can fight well? –LightningRed
I believe Shang deserved to be a lot higher. True, in the beginning he wasn't feminist. However, we can see the growth in him as the movie progresses, and I strongly believe post-movie he's one of the most feminist friendly princes. –BelleAnastasia
6. John Smith
Place six was tough competition, and in the end went to a tiebreak poll. John was voted out because of his meeting with Pocahontas, much like Phillip. In the beginning, John is about to kill Pocahontas. However, she makes him decide not to and to give her a chance. Now, this could be seen as a great feminist act- if he had done so because of the way she related with him and because he saw that she had something valuable to teach him, which, eventually, he does. However, the reason John didn’t kill Pocahontas is because she is beautiful. Another reason he was voted out is because of how possessive he was over just about everything, and that he in the end swoops into the savior role. Those who supported him admired that he was willing to learn from Pocahontas, but, much like Shang, it was too little too late for most in this poll.
John Smith (along with Naveen) is the definition of sexist. –maryksand
John...well, yes, he's ready to learn from Pocahontas, but the only reason he didn't shoot her is because she was hot. -princesslullaby
I think that even though John Smith may have appeared plus anti-feminist than Aladin in the beginning of the movie, par the end of the movie he was likely to have gone through a bigger change, and embrace the ideas of feminism plus than Aladdin. –BelleAnastasia
Aladin has several issues with his relationship with jasmin that got him voted out. It all seemed to do with how he assumed jasmin was materialistic and shallow. Also, Aladin did go along with everything jasmin a dit about how she was a “fine prize to be won,” though he was just sort of going with what jasmin was saying. However, the main problem was that Aladin assumes things about Jasmine- and some even brought up the point he had every reason not to think that about her if he had only listened to what she had a dit in the marketplace. jasmin was talking about how much she hated palace life and was obviously interested in him then, but he suddenly forgets all that when he turns up at the palace and tries to woo her par montrer off all his stuff.
To me it seems like he never stops to consider what jasmin may want. I definitely don't think he's anti-feminist at heart, but through his self-absorption he does tend to forget that she wants to make her own choices. –milky-way
I mean he actually talked to Jasmine, she told him how she felt about her life. But apparently he was too wrapped up in his own dreams, otherwise he wouldn't think that he has to be a prince to impress her. –Swanpride
But Aladin *DID* apologize for his actions even though he was still naturally drawn to jasmin and tried to impress her –maryksand
Beast doesn’t really do too much in the way of feminism, either in favor of ou against. His character development is mainly due to him trying to get out of his situation- however, without Belle and needing to fall in l’amour with a woman and get her to fall in l’amour with him, he could not get out of his situation and would have no character development. I am kind of surprised no one a dit he was using Belle for his personal gain, but apparently that was no one’s opinion. He believes she will not fall in l’amour with him because of his looks and she is beautiful, and he takes many opportunities to display his power.
Later on, all of Beast's development is based on the fact that she is beautiful and he's not therefore he wants and tries to desperately measure up to her level par learning plus about mannerism –maryksand
He is controlling, abusive, and downright scary. -princesslullaby
He might see Belle mostly as a way to break the spell at the beginning, but again, it's not really her beauty which leads to him developing feelings for her, but the way she acts after the loup attack. –Swanpride
3. The Prince
toi have no idea how he got this far, and neither do I. I guess people just sort of forgot about him, I’m really not sure why he’s in the haut, retour au début three. So instead of looking at what he did, let’s look at what the others did that he didn’t. He didn’t roll his eyes at women because of looks, he didn’t even see Snow White when he first was interested. He definitely isn’t a womanizer, he’s a one-woman man. toi can’t say he was too pushy, ou at least he didn’t grab at her. He never seemed disappointed with her being a woman. He didn’t almost kill her but not because of her looks. He didn’t try to change himself for what he thought she wanted despite hearing that it wasn’t what she wanted. He never tried to display his power over her. So he is here for not really doing anything. Usually it works against him, now it works for him.
I really wish I had voted out the Prince before John Smith, Aladdin, ou Beast. –princesslullaby
Ehh time for him to go. Eric and Flynn are much plus feminist. –Jessikaroo
Prince needs to go this time, not because he did something paticulary sexist ou anti-feminist, but plus because par the end he embraced the traditional male saviour role –maryksand
Eric loves Ariel for the way she acts and is so vibrant around him. He doesn’t want her to be some shrinking violet, he wants her to be expressive and comical and keep her zest for life that she has. It is what he falls for. He is happy to let her take control on the tour of the kingdom and doesn’t mind her being vers l'avant, vers l’avant on the bateau ride. Basically the only thing anyone a dit against him is that he just isn’t as feminist as our number one.
All we see them do is woo the princesses and eventually come to their rescue. But being nice to a girl doesn't mean toi are feminist friendly. What we at least see in the other princes is that they might have some doubt in the girls, but eventually they come to realize that women are just as capable and strong as the men. –BelleAnastasia
I think that Eric's "I have Lost her once" is a tad possessive. -Swanpride
We have Eric taking on the pursuee role, while Ariel pursues him. And Eric's ego isn't bruised when a girl rescues him. –princesslullaby
There was no doubt that Flynn won this countdown. It was a landslide victory. What set him apart from the rest of the pack was how much he values Rapunzel’s freedom. He cares plus about Rapunzel’s independence than Rapunzel does. She was planning on going back to her tower, and Flynn makes her question it. She was about to give up his independence for him, and he gave up his life so she would be free. Rapunzel’s freedom means plus to him than it does to her, and it even means plus to him than his own life. He undoubtedly cares plus about Rapunzel’s independence than any other prince does his princess, putting him at the haut, retour au début of this countdown.
He is actually in l’amour with Rapunzel's character first, not with her voice. He doesn't even really care how Rapunzel looks –Swanpride
I find Flynn to be the most feminist because Rapunzel's freedom was very important to him. He didn't just sacrifice his own life to save hers, which I think most of the princes would do, but he sacrificed his life for her freedom. So he basically valued her freedom plus than his own life. I don't think any of the other princes can compare with that. –milky-way
Flynn is going to win because Eric is less Feminist then him..... –SweetPea2007
Sorry if some of the descriptions are too long and the captions aren't great, I just did them off the haut, retour au début of my head!
Look at all these girls throwing themselves at me. How boring.
How many hearts was he planning on stepping on?
Because grabbing her as she leaves is so respectful
Yes, I did send you daughters when you asked for sons
She was just too hot to kill
You really couldn't remember one thing about this conversation?
This totally looks like a respectful boyfriend
It's finally payed off that everything I do is off screen
Hey, I never knew the kiss would set her free, don't blame me for not doing anything for her freedom
