I wish you were here, Autumn is the hardest season. The leaves are all falling And they’re falling like they’re falling in love with the ground And the trees are naked and lonely I keep trying to tell them New leaves will come around in the spring But you can’t tell trees those things, They’re like me they just stand there And don’t listen.
I saw a post arguing why Frozen is sexist, racist and ableist. It was slammed down by the fandom because in all honesty, the arguments were not solid.
Rather than respond to a gigantic damn post, I decided to erect a new one. So here are some alternate arguments as to why elements of sexism, racism, and ableism are unequivocally present in this oscar-winning, smash hit film.
This will be long. And if you want to conflate level-headed, comprehensive critique of media with “hate,” then please skip this. <3
I would not focus too heavily on the forced romance between Kristoff and Anna specifically. Rather, I would draw attention to the pattern of Anna’s behavior and the consequences she experiences (or just completely skirts) from it.
Every decision she makes on her own results in utter disaster. Every decision is ill-informed, unadvised, and ends terribly, yet this is a character applauded for her independent decisions. Apparently the actual demonstration of efficacy is unnecessary to win the title of “feminist character.”
hey guys!! I love Frozen just as much as the next fan, but this is a very VERY well-constructed criticism of the themes in the movie. It’s a good thing this was brought up too because these are some serious issues going on : (
Definitely read! : )
