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.

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Children often feel pressured into following outdated gender norms — but the more the entertainment industry shows men and women shamelessly living their lives, the earlier young people will internalize these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.

This isn't the first time Disney turned its back on sexist tropes.

Earlier this year, the network aired a TV movie about a princess who turned down a marriage proposal so she could accomplish her goals. 

Disney also featured same-sex kisses in this same cartoon show.

(Keep it up, Disney!)
