The Princess Syndrome

Have anyone heard of a mental disease named

"THE PRINCESS SYNDROME"?

As nice as it sounds like teaming with the lovely word "Princess", it is nothing good actually. Hello? Did you even notice that the word "Princess" is followed by "Syndrome", which literally means - a type of negative behavior or mental state that is typical of a person in a particular situation -or- a combination of medical problems that commonly go together, which might show the existence of a particular disease or mental condition.

Princess Syndrome: A mental state that a female exhibits out of reverse sexism. Because she is unaware of her sexism, she will claim to deserve supreme aristocratic rights from a partner due to her looks or her child-bearing "pain." Any brainwashed man will give her tangible things and emotional sublimity to stop her, and she will only demand more.

From Urbandictionary.


"Princess" was never my kinda thing. True that I once dreamed of being a princess and seriously, which girl at the age of 3 - 8 doesn't. But once I was old enough to put my brain in (maybe not-so) proper use, I came to think of certain silly comments about Princesses such as...

Why do all (Brothers Grimm FairyTale) princesses got to be so weak and stupid?
Take Cinderella for example.

Why did Cinderella choose to ran back home and continue her "amah" job instead of enjoying the freedom in the outside world after the clock struck 12 midnight?

She could have set up a boutique and sell those fairytale-like gowns like what Giselle did in "Enchanted" what, since she can just sing or whistle and get her working crew and feed them with cheese or bread. Cheap labour yo. Or, she's actually a clean freak with OCD?

And.. why worried and ran away when her pretty white gown is turning into rags? I know the answer lah, she's afraid that the prince will saw her in that ugly and buruk dress mah... But, if the prince fall in love with her just because she's all pretty and damn chun on that night, and can't even recognized her the next day sampai need to use the glass slipper to find her... Isn't that pathetic? Whatever happened to "True Love" huh?

After all, the prince will be seeing her bare face without make up after they kahwin what. Better see it and get used to it first (than pengsan the next morning after their wedding night) isn't it?

'nuff said.
I think you get my point already.

So, back to this "Princess Syndrome" topic.

Recently I had quite an unpleasant experience with a self-titled "Princess" whom I only met for the first time. It was just a random chat between the boyfriend and STP's (STP= Self-titled Princess, her nick from now on) boyfriend.

So Bobby and I bumped into his ex-uni friend and went up to chat a bit. Upon reaching him, we noticed the expression of STP and its definitely not friendly. She's young (at the age of 16 to 17 I think) but old enough to know what "courtesy" means and developed a certain level of EI (Emotional Intelligence).

She was sulking in a corner while Bobby and her boyfriend were catching up with each other and I was keeping a smile on my face in case we saw eye-to-eye. Her boyfriend was sweet enough to get me involved in their chat and STP rolled her eyes and keep pulling his arms asking him to go, as if we're interrupting their lovey-dovey moment.

Like... a 5 yo kid pestering mommy in public.

(Put him in a cage in your room lah ban.)

I'm not sure if her boyfriend already get used to her manja-ness or what, but he seems to develop an immunity against her childish act. He continued talking as if nothing happened.

And just when we're about to go, STP's boyfriend invited us for dinner because their (Bobby and his) other friends will be there. Of course, we rejected. It was obvious that we're unwelcome in STP's eyes and right after her boyfriend asked, she starred at us as if we're some sort of an evil boyfriend-attention-thieves, and continued pulling and dragging him away.

The moment we left them I turned to Bobby and asked, "Err..How old is she again? 5.. or 6?". He just shrugged, smiled and said, "I think she's always like that".

"I salute your friend lah."

And so I told a friend (who happens to know STP) about this incident. Same like Bobby, he answered, "Don't care her lah.. she andang like that one. She think she Princess bah".

I thought Princess is suppose to be pretty, nice and loved by everyone? Unfortunately, Princess nowadays mean - spoiled, bad-tempered and extremely jealous. And when someone call you a princess, it's no longer a compliment, more like a mockery - to me lah.

I was googling "Princess Syndrome" and I came across this.
Must read! Too good to miss!

Princess syndrome is a mental disease that’s effecting millions of females worldwide, females that have princess syndrome are usually dumb, slutty, attention whore seeking wanna-be princesses.

...

Symptoms

  • Extreme insecurity
  • Urge to be the center of attention (read: attention whore)
  • Never taking responsibility for anything
  • Wanting everyone to know she’s a princess
  • Drama queen

I had a good laugh.

And if you know how to read Chinese, this from Uncyclopedia makes me giggle every time I read.

以三十歲以下為主要族群,其中高達八成為在學學生,又以大學生為好發對象。一般而言,30歲後許多女性的公主症候群會痊癒,是因為市價暴跌而不敢張狂,轉變為追婚症候群。這種女性多數在家都被細心疼愛,以為全天下男人都會像家人一樣疼愛自己。

(Says: Happen to most females at the age of below 30 and 80% are students. In most cases, females who have Princess Syndrome will recovered after they pass the age of 30, due to depreciation, and later evolved to DBS, Desperate Baby Syndrome)

Eh wait, sounds sexist eh.
Never mind.

I don't mind people calling themselves Princess because its their lives, their choices. And I do know some STP who's actually quite nice and live in reality.

And I do not hold grudges against STP as long as they behaved like normal person and doesn't feel any superior than the "commoners", order everyone around them, thinks that everyone should agrees with her and obey her "commands".


Look Ma, I'm a Princess!


Princess? What Princess?
I rather be that average girl that will be liked and accepted by most.

(Bobby called me his "King", seldom Princess)


Calling yourself a princess is okay.
As long as you don't think everyone around you is your servant.
Unless, you're a real princess.



p/s: Die lah.. Sure a lot of girls out there kana offended and I'm going to get lots of hate comments liao.

affy said...

This is really good.

I hope her self-absorbness, and thinking that she is worshiped by the masses will help her enjoy this entry more than we actually did. I really hope this entry is bimbo-friendly. HAHHA

If it is bimbo-friendly, Sad Daddy is definitely gonna hear her whine about this... and probably shower her daughter with gifts after that.

Siapa makan cili dialah terasa pedasnya? Hell yeah.
