There's a new princess in the Disney kingdom, and "she" happens to be a boy!
On the Disney channel show “Star Vs. The Forces Of Evil,” male cartoon character Marco Diaz transforms into a princess (complete with his own ballgown).
"I have to tell you the truth," Diaz tells a crowd of fellow princesses. "I ... am a boy."
At first, the crowd was skeptical about a "hairy boy" becoming a princess.
"Is that a hair?" the crowd gasped.
But a princess in the crowd quickly explained why Diaz's gender — and his chest hair — doesn't matter.
"That doesn’t prove anything!" the princess cried out. "Princesses can be hairy!”
The group of princesses ultimately decided that Diaz CAN be a boy princess.
“Why does it matter if he’s a boy?” another princess chimed in. “Nothing he said was wrong!”
“He can be a princess if he wants to,” the crowd announced.
Twitter immediately started happy-crying over this beautiful TV moment.
Viewers have waited a long time for a boy Disney princess.
The scene sends a powerful message to young children.
Children often feel pressured into following outdated gender norms — but the more the entertainment industry shows men and women shamelessly living their lives, the earlier young people will internalize these "groundbreaking situations" as normal.
