Hello human being.
My name is Jessica and I was born in 93.
My blog is about:
Rise of the guardians
Shingeki no Kyojin
And whatever I want to reblog.
Feel free to enjoy and chat.
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.”
I’ve gotta say, I’m a huge Frozen fan. Watched it more times that I can count, but this are valid arguments! All this flaws deserve being seen and debated. I love this movie but DAMN they did a lot of shit.
