stereotypes against white people are not dangerous at all. no one is out here stopping and frisking you guys for liking starbucks and chipotle. meanwhile, black teenagers suspected of being “thugs” and “threats” are slain on sight so please calm the fuck down and learn how to take a joke
I really don’t care if they re-name Moana to Spirited. I don’t care if they did the same thing for Tangled and Brave.
If Disney thinks that’s what they need to do to convince boys to see the film, good, fine, do it.
I’d much rather have Disney make a film with a female lead kicking arse that little boys are willing to watch, than a film they refuse to see because the name makes it look like a “girl film”.
I think that’s nonsense. Why should a movie about a female character have the title changed to ‘hide’ that it’s about a female character? They didn’t do that with Robin Hood, or Aladdin, or The Lion King, or Tarzan. ‘Brave’ was originally titled ‘The Bear and the Bow’ so exactly what was ‘girly’ about that?
Why should anything about a female character be hidden so it will appeal to boys? Why are boys so important and matter so much? Why are boys the default? Why, even when a movie is about a female character, does it still need to appeal to boys? Notice how, ever since The Little Mermaid, even if a Disney animated film stars a female character, it’s overwhelmingly male. Why is maleness considered universally marketable but femaleness is only a ‘niche’?
Girls shouldn’t be diminished just so boys will think something about them is cool.
Maybe instead of hiding away any shred of womanhood we should teach boys that women are worthy of respect and that women are just as important as they are. The idea that we should make sure there are no female names in the title of movies to get 7 year old males into see them is just beyond ridiculous. Instead of covering women up lets show boys that women are amazing.
when privileged groups want rights, safety, and respect, it’s called “basic human decency”
when oppressed groups want rights, safety, and respect, it’s called “social justice”
and mocked. it’s called “social justice” and is mocked or otherwise hated.
