…wait a minute; why is it called The Little Mermaid? I mean, it’s been close to twenty years since I’ve seen the film (or read Hans Christian Anderson’s disturbing original story, for that matter), but I don’t seem to recall her being notably smaller than other mermaids.
Or her size being an issue in any sense, really.
Because she’s an asshole.
From her appearance, it had nothing to do with age either…
