Disney also teaches similar things about animals...I like the films, but dislike the stereotypes.

Funny you should post this.

I was looking at Disney on youtube yesterday. Here is what The Little Mermaid taught me.



Axl - Take a look at our piercing menu.

Daria - I don't think that's how you spell "uvula."

Axl - That's not "uvula."

From: "Daria" episode "Pierce Me"

You mean, other than the fact that she had to pretend to be a boy to achieve her dreams?

Dont we all have to give up or change something to achive our dreams? wether it is time, money, comfort, careers, boyfriends or what ever you need to change to get to that place you always have wished for. At the end she got what she wanted and everyone knew she was a girl.

True, but having to effectively switch genders places that character in the same anti-feminist boat as the others. That without men (or pretending to be one), our worth is minimal.

Look at it in a different perspective; one of the first females to go undercover in an all man environment and even managed to avoid beheading when discovered. That and writing the answers on your arm before taking a bath isn't the best way to ace your exam happy1

I love Beauty & The Beast as a film, I think it's absolutely fantastic. However, it pisses me off every time that he turns back into the handsome prince at the end.

That's where Shrek got it right.

Shrek was pure genius. It got everything right. Right down to the finer points....like how the world needs talking donkeys.
