The problem with false feminism
(or why “Frozen” left me cold)
Since it seems to have done the rounds, and since I wrote it, I figured I should post it. The original Frozen article that everyone got so het up about.
I just read this. I think others might want to as well.
Please do not flame me or the author. There are things I agree with and things I dont. But I think it’s always interesting and beneficial to read something that may not be your exact views.
I enjoyed Frozen. Not as much as many other people I know. This helped me understand why that might have been. Not completely, but it set me on the road of questioning. And that is never a bad thing.
It is well written and well researched and, I think, worth a read.
I applaud Disney for creating a movie based around sisters, with two main female characters. I like how Elsa was relatable to me in a new way ( I have mild anxiety. While this isn’t the greatest representation of it (actually I found Iron Man 3 more accurate for myself PERSONALLY) at least it was a step towards a flawed female protagonist). But this article reminds me that these are small steps. We have a long way to go. And so does the movie industry.
So please keep an open mind. Remember it is an opinion. And please respect the author whatever your opinion may be. 😊

First off your leading lady is all curvy and snarky.
Second your villain is sarcastic and pissed off all the time.
Then you literally have a chorus of these sassy bitches. Calling Meg out on her shit, “like nah uh girl, we…
Reblogging this purely for the fact that there may be a Meg/ Who design in the future!!!!!
I know they’re hardly ever specific doctors but if it were somehow with Nine I think I’d curl into a ball of happy.
Inspired by a recent experience I had with someone stealing my art and cropping out my URL.
Dedicated to every artist who has had their art work stolen.
I like the last panel. I feel it’s a good representation of how it actually feels to an artist when you crop off a watermark.
