Once upon a time, there was a young girl, and she was not a princess or a pretty girl waiting to be a princess. Her hair got in her face and her mouth.

A LADY DOES NOT SCRATCH HER CROTCH looks at how growing up in the shadow of a particular Disney princess can be confusing, confining and at times consuming.
