So I re watched Little Mermaid again for the first time in probably 12 years. I'm sorry I waited this long because it's easily one of my favorite Disney movies. The story was really cohesive, Ursula was insane and brutal, and Ariel is the most fun Disney princess.
There is a fair amount of negative reception of her character from mostly the female community and the fans of the novel. In both variants of the story she is brash, foolish and infatuated with Eric, but is called bratty in the Disney adaptation. Specifically people see Part of that World just as her complaining and eventually just wanting Eric's dick.
I think it goes beyond that though. She has a dream like most Disney characters, and for her she wants to be human, so it's not so much complaining as it is desiring for the seemingly impossible. Eric and the destruction of her stuff was just the catalyst that put her over the top to pursue the dream.
It's like you wanted a Sega Genesis for Christmas because it does what Nintendont, but on top of that it also plays Gunstar Heroes and Strider.
Does anyone else take issue with or back her character that wants to add to this?

>Anxious to finally figure out where Ursa is, the group is stunned when the Mother of Faces tells them she only grants one request at a time. Knowing that the brother and sister have been waiting for so long, they mean to let them ask for the brother’s new face… but Azula, who can’t unerstand compassion and selflessness, barges in and demands to know where Ursa is. It’s then we find out, through the spirit’s explanation and a set of flashbacks, that they’ve already met her as the wife of Noren from the village. She has changed her face and name to Noriko, and had her memory wiped of all the painful years with Ozai — including all of the time spent with her children.
>While Zuko runs to stop an enraged Azula, Aang attempts to get the Mother of Faces to help the water tribe siblings, but she becomes furious that humans continue to ask her to undo the work that she did, and that now even the Avatar is demanding she help the humans. But as Aang deflects her attacks, the brother loses his mask, and it’s discovered that he wasn’t injured — his face was wiped away by Koh the Face Stealer, who happens to be the son of the Mother of Faces. Repentent, the spirit returns the man’s face. Meanwhile, Zuko manages to reach Noriko and Noren before Azula attacks. Realizing that Noren is also Ikem, the man his mother had loved, Zuko is prepared to remain in this village with who he sees as his true family, and Azula attacks. Zuko, knowing he has to take charge, fights her off, and Azula runs, leaving her family, and the letter saying Zuko is not the old Fire Lord’s son, behind.

What are the biggest /co/-related controversies you know of?
>However, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) criticized the design of Grandpa Boris and charged it with being anti-Semitic. The controversy erupted when a 1998 Rugrats comic strip was published, featuring Boris in a synagogue reciting the Mourner's Kaddish. The ADL issued a statement saying that the design resembled Nazi-era depictions of Jews, and the fact that the character was reciting the sacred prayer perverted its solemnity. The Washington Post, the newspaper who published the strip, issued a similar statement in their Editor's Note section, criticizing Nickelodeon for not showing better judgment in editing the strip.
>Though former Nickelodeon president Albie Hecht, a Jew himself, was dumbfounded by the accusation and deemed it absurd, Herb Scannell, president of the company in 1998, responded to the complaints and apologized to ADL. Scannell issued a statement promising that neither the strip nor the character would ever be published again.
