Jamie Cearley, PhDPrincess backpacks, princess toothbrushes, princess sheets, princess pajamas, and yes, even princess underwear. Apparently a lot of little girls these days are living and breathing the idea that they either already are or should aspire to become a princess. Ugh!

Have you seen the toys these wishful princesses play with? There are dolls, whose heads look like overgrown pumpkins sitting on a fence post of a neck, whose eyes are the size of a harvest moon on a dark fall night, and whose bodies are so frail and thin they look like they need to eat a whole hogs worth of bacon just to live another day!

Then there are the electronic toys, bleeping and talking to them saying things like, “Enter your princess name …. That’s a beautiful name for a princess.” Yuck! The movies, oh my, the movies. If I see another bug eyed, pencil legged princess, with hair to beat a Gypsy Vanner, being rescued and given meaning in life by some burly blond guy whose chest is ten times the circumference of his waist I might lose it.

Here are four reasons country girls outclass princesses:

Suzannah, I couldn't agree with you more. Here's hoping we can influence the world for better in our own little way. Thank you for your comment.

Dave, my husband would shout out a resounding AMEN to your comments. That's one of the big reasons I like him so much. I manage our little farm full time and am very often found appearing just as you describe. Although, I would like to think I clean up good too! :) He says I do. Glad to hear there are more men like him out there. Thanks for your comments.

Thanks - this perspective needs to be heard over and over for generations to come, apparently. Why we keep crippling our girls and women with a constant, unrealistic and undesirable focus on appearance I don't understand. Why women succumb to it, still, and then pass it on to their "princess" daughters is baffling.

Jamie, I have to agree with you. Country girls, in my humble opinion, have much more class without all the drama and high maintenance of a princess city girl. I've always had a special place in my heart for girls that face the world without makeup in blue jeans, muck boots, and leather gloves. Now that's truly a help mate, don't you think? ***** Have a great country girl day.
