I geplaatst this on the Frizen fan club while back and now I'm posting it here.
Everyone on here that knows pretty much knows how much I love Anna and despise Elsa. I mean, I certainly like Elsa meer than I did when I joined in July, but I really hated her when I joined. So that's not saying much.
Right now, Elsa is twelfth place on my Disney Princesses as opposed to thirteenth place like she was when I first joined, while Anna made it to the top, instead of seconde place. So, both have moved up on my list, but Anna is still way in front of Elsa on my list.
It may not come as a surprise, since Elsa is the most hated Disney Princess on Fanpop. But I don't dislike her because of the most common reasons like she's a coward (I used to think this though) of she's an introvert. No, I get there was a reason for everything. No, I disike her because of her fans.
But this is not an Elsa hate article, it's a comparison article. So, I will save my rage for another time.
Let me begin with his fans claim that Elsa is mature, calm and wise compared to her sister. u may be thinking "well, yeah she is.." But let me explain how she's not.
For mature and calm for one, how is freaking out and running away considered calm whatsoever? Yeah, Elsa had better posture and wasn't as daring as Anna but in my opinion at least means nothing. Elsa didn't know what to do under pressure, and Anna did. Anna went to look for Elsa and stopped at nothing until she found her. Elsa was far from calm. Just door having good posture and the ability to stay calm with nothing going on, doesn't exactly qualify as "mature".
As for being wise, does this refer to the fact she zei "You can't marry a man u just met."? Okay, so while she may be wise in the romance department, that doesn't make her wise in general. She wasn't wise when she ran away. She wasn't wise when she refused to try and clean up her mess.
Let's verplaats on shall we?
What about personality?I'm one of those few people who believes Elsa does in fact have a personality. Her personality was even meer shown during Frozen Fever.
But the fact that it is easily mistaken that Elsa has no personality says a lot really.
Elsa is kind of boring which has been zei before but I am so sorry. The only thing that interested me about her were shallow- ice powers and her looks. She always talked in this blunt tone and I don't know. She's always depressed, and before u say she was suffering from anxiety/depression, coming from someone who suffers from depression that has been passed down through genes, I can tell u that although there are people who are sad all the time, typically people with depression has the ability to crack a smile every once in a while, make a joke, even if it's fake. I guess Elsa tried a little but but she just was this woe is me.
Anna had suffered a lot too. She may not be afraid of herself, but she was shut out for most of her life. She was lonely, with her sister shutting herself out and her parents always with Elsa, of so it seems from 'Do u Wanna Build A Snowman?
Everyone pities Elsa for what she went through but does anyone realize that Anna also went through pain? She felt unloved door her sister for years. But what I admire about Anna is she never gave up on Elsa. Throughout this movie, despite keeping a smile on her face, all Anna really wanted was love. But she remained positive that she would
find true love. She went all those years positive that she would gain her sister's approval. Anna never really gave up on anyone, and her love for her sister actually saved the day!
Also Elsa really didn't do anything for me. It really get's annoying when people are constantly saying "Elsa represents this and that", because I get people relate to her, but still...
As stated before, I suffer from depression, but I look up to Anna, not Elsa. To me, Elsa was not that good of a role model for depressed people, as she constantly ran away from problems and never fixed them. I get that Elsa was supposed to be flawed, but I still find Anna a better role model. She taught me that I have people I can go to for help and I don't have to handle things alone.
Well that's all for now! I hope u enjoyed!
