Why do girls say they deserve to be treated like a princess? Sure, it’s a great idea in theory, but would you really even want to be a princess? It seems rather high-stress. Desire aside, I argue that most girls who say they deserve to be treated like royalty, really don’t. Here are my 5 reasons why:

5. You don’t look like a princess. If you want to be treated like a princess, you should probably be dressing with the word ‘demure’ in mind. Yes, this argument doesn’t seem very feminist, but neither does expecting a knight in shining armor to gallop in and take care of you. 

4. You aren’t learning. Pretty sure there aren’t too many princesses sitting around flipping through Cosmo or talking about what the Kardashians are up to. Aim higher. Can you greet people and make small talk in multiple languages? Are you up on current events and pressing social issues? Are you a patron of the arts? If not, better start. 

3. You don’t give back.  Yes, you can volunteer even if you aren’t just trying to make your community service hours. Spend you time in your community and be a model citizen. When you are, never look bored and don’t complain! You want to be someone others can look up to. 

2. You don’t believe in privacy. Stop being an attention whore. Royalty is way too good for that. 

1.  You have no manners. Do you treat everyone else in your life like a princess? Until you do, I doubt anyone else will consider treating you that way. 

 

…and that’s my rant for the day.
