What wiseGEEK Says About Me

The folks at wiseGEEK have put together an entry on yours truly. The article, Who is Prince Charming?, is actually not bad. It is a bit more in-depth than Wikipedia’s attempt but it is still lacking.

I am an important part of nearly all fair tales, yet I only get short entries on various web reference sites and am looked at as a one dimensional joke. Personally I think that people are just jealous of my great looks and tremendous skills. When they realize that they just cannot compare with me, the poor blokes take those feelings of inadequacy and turn them into anger and jealousy towards the one that they wish they were more like…me.

This article picks up a bit on my theory. Take a look –
From a symbolic sense, however, all princes who rescue ladies are essentially Prince Charming duplicates. Often the Prince needs to be royal in order to rescue the princess or maiden from horrible living conditions. Frequently, it is not royalty but true love that allows a Prince Charming to free a lady from a terrible spell. This is the case with both Sleeping Beauty and Snow White. True love’s first kiss rescues these damsels.

Prince Charming can also be a symbol of the ideal man for a woman who is looking for marriage. As a backlash, many modern women assert they don't need a Prince Charming, and don't need to be "rescued." They believe that they don't need a husband or Prince Charming to live complete and happy lives. Many feminist critics believe that the Prince Charming ideal is unrealistic and reverts many women to "damsels" who need to be rescued.

Others, especially young girls, may cherish the concept of a Prince Charming, who appears and adores them. While many men may have certain "Prince Charming" attributes, the Prince Charming in literature and film is extremely idealized. When stories end with a “happily ever after,” they are somewhat deluded. We never know if Prince Charming fails to pick up his laundry, gawks at other women, or snores so loudly one needs a separate bedroom.

This type of realism is applied to the character Prince Charming in the film Shrek 2. Prince Charming turns out to be a whiny, wimpy character that is too late to save Princess Fiona. Fiona has already chosen Shrek as her husband, and Prince Charming behaves like a spoiled child upon learning the news. This is a pleasant turn of events for many feminist critics, who are a little tired of the Prince Charming current running through many novels and fairytales.

See what I mean? There are angry men who are just jealous of my good looks and angry women who are jealous that they can’t have me.

One other thing, there is a hit out on those git’s who made the Shrek movies. What an insult!! Your days are numbered boys.
