"Since Fat Princess's recent announcement, much has been said regarding the stereotypical princess in games. Feminists generally aren't receptive to the whole "damsel in distress needing to be saved" persona (especially when it's paired with uncontrollable binge eating, like it is in Fat Princess). Being a female myself, I see their point here, but unlike them, I don't believe the answer lies in abolishing characters like this altogether. With the proper makeover, I believe any princess has badass potential."
