Tinkerbell: too sexy for small kids?
Tinkerbell: too sexy for small kids?

Is Tinkerbell a skank?

My boys begged me for the new "Tinkerbell" movie, and I was a bit surprised since lately they have started identifying things as "for girls" and "for boys."

I did, eventually, buy them the film, and I admit, I didn't watch any of it.

My friend, however, said she didn't want her daughters to see this Disney movie because Tinkerbell looked like a "skank modeled after Pamela Anderson."

After she said this, I checked the cover of the film, and, indeed, Tink is a tad busty. But a skank? I don't know about that.

Maybe it's because I have boys  and I don't spend a lot of time worrying about body image stuff like the mothers of daughters have to, but when I look at Tinkerbell, I mostly see a harmless nymph ... with a spritely set of knockers. Huh.

Tinkerbell was actually modeled after an unknown pinup model. She was intentionally made to look, um, a little naughty. It in a documentary on the re-release of "Peter Pan".

Tink like all disney female lead characters are just hot looking young ladies. They all have big seductive eyes, perky boobs and revealing outfits. Even Snow white was a babe for her time. As far as the skank title, I don't think so. She does not look like she's had a boob job since her Peter Pan gig. Pamela on the other hand is out of control.
