Ever notice how all Disney princesses look the same?
With their irregularly small waists and large eyes, it gives off the idea that in order to have the princess look, you must look a certain way.
High school student Jewel Moore, from Farmville, Va., decided to take matters into her own hands, according to the Huffington Post.
The junior has started a petition on Change.org asking Disney to create a plus-size princess and to feature that princess in an upcoming movie.
“I made this petition because I’m a plus-size young woman, and I know many plus-size girls and women who struggle with confidence and need a positive plus-size character in the media,” Moore wrote.
“It would be revolutionary for Disney to show support to a group of girls who are otherwise horrendously bullied by the media. It would make many young girls feel confident and worthy to see a strong character that looks like them. This move on Disney’s part would have an amazing positive ripple effect in people all around the world,” she added.
The petition has already reached nearly 7,000 supporters and gotten a few responses.
So far, Disney has not commented on the petition.
