Frozen - Sexism, Racism, Ableism

Okay.

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
