This story isn’t cute, sweet, or sentimental. It’s just another gross display of White American privilege being cast out into the wide net of colonial exploitation, masquerading as an adoring fatherly gesture. Get your kid a canopy bed if she wants to pretend to be a princess. Don’t coddle her by allowing her to believe she is one. Tell her to take off her fuckin’ tiara, and show her by example that things don’t come easy, and that when they do, it’s at the expense of someone else. Go stick your flag in your backyard and build her a goddamn tree house.
