Tinker Bell Gets Non-Slutty Makeover

Yesterday, many of you expressed shock and outrage at Hallmark’s tragic sexification (is that a word? probably not) of one of Gen Y’s most beloved children’s characters, the once-indefatigable Rainbow Brite. And R.B. wasn’t the first to get the Bratz treatment — lots of other mini-icons have been put through the ringer to please a generation of kidlins who’ve grown up surrounded by the living Barbie dolls who are blatant plastic surgery devotees. But for all their sickening contributions to the “princess syndrome,” Disney finally did right by one of their most famous characters, from a more feminist perspective anyway. While Tinker Bell, created in 1953, always had that total Marilyn Monroe-bod working for her, we worried that she must’ve gotten awfully cold flying around Neverland without any pants on. (So ahead of her time though, right Lady Gaga?) She’s recently been redesigned for a starring role in a DVD, “Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure,” to be released later this month. Not only is sister now doin’ it for herself (she’s dropped that hapless Peter Pan like a bad habit), she’s dressed for success in boots, a capelet (so chic) layered over long sleeves, hat and leggings. Let’s just hope the latter aren’t made by Lindsay Lohan. [ONTD]
