This disturbing abuse awareness poster series was created by anonymous artist Saint Hoax, in response to finding out that a close friend was raped at the age of seven by her father. The illustrated 'Princest Diaries' series features Disney princesses like Ariel, Jasmine and Sleeping Beauty and their dads kissing—if this isn't upsetting enough, the posters also note that 46% of minors are raped by their own family members. One of the original versions of Sleeping Beauty actually involved the princess being taken advantage of in her sleep, although this is definitely not the version that Disney tells.

With the series, Saint Hoax describes that "The aim of the poster series is to encourage victims to report their cases in order for the authorities to prevent it from happening again."
