Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor Talks Princesses On “Sesame Street”

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.
