So what is up with princesses any­more? Where the hell are they? In role play­ing games you come across one every time. In my head I come across princesses all the time. They’re every­where, blink­ing their silver-dusted eye­lashes and caus­ing men in the vicin­ity to go weak-kneed.

I think Amer­ica needs to have a princess or two. And I don’t mean Obama’s daugh­ters, or Tina Fey. I demand some gen­uine princess activ­ity, with golden crowns, ancient lin­eages and mag­i­cal pow­ers. You’re not a real princess if you don’t have mag­i­cal pow­ers. That’s how I will know.
