False Alarm: Disney Still Keeping Sexualized Version Of “Brave”‘s Princess Merida

Last week, I wrote about how bummed I was that the heroine of Disney's "Brave" is undergoing a makeover before she becomes an official Disney Princess.

Disney Isn’t “Brave” Enough To Leave Princess Merida As Is

When Disney's "Brave" came out last year, I was thrilled. So excited, in fact, that I went to see the movie at the El Capitan Theater in Los Angeles, complete with a pre-movie live show! I am a not-so-closeted Disney fan. Though I'd never take my love this far, I did grow u…
