"So, in these countries that are so great and open
about sex, why no penises? Why only are women’s
bodies ‘cheap enough’ to be plastered everywhere?”
[Context: Professor of Sociology and Women’s Studies Gail Dines arguing that the neutral perception of the media representation of sex and sexuality is misleading because it ignores the profound sexism engrained in the culture. A sexism that primarily sexually objectifies women while disregarding male bodies so that they aren’t presented in the same fragmented, objectifying way].
YES THANK YOU

So I made this thing and I’m pretty proud of it, haha.
I think this was really well done, but now I want to see this broken down to see when each of the films was created.
Something I think a lot of people don’t take into consideration is the fact that a fair amount of these movies were made during times when it was very much the norm to have only white characters. And not to mention the fact that Disney is based in a country with an extremely Euro-centric culture.
I’m gonna direct you to the first slide of the 3 that are below the photoset because there’s an entire paragraph on that.
