Being A Princess Is Not A Career

At some point in the life of many little girls and some little boys there comes the cold, hard realization that you cannot be a princess when you grow up. Think about it: do you really want to spend the rest of your life like Kate Middleton abusing brown eye liner? I thought not. A new clip from “Sesame Street” breaks it to those booger-eaters with the help of Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor.

Justice Sotomayor is hanging out with Abby Cadabby, the girly-girl pink “princess” muppet on “Sesame Street.” Abby is enthusiastic about becoming a princess when she grows up, which is when the Justice teaches her the word “career.” Being a princess is not a job, sorry!

My little feminist heart skipped a beat and tears filled my eyes as Justice Sotomayor told Abby all the different things she can do when she grows up that are a career.
