in women's studies. For example, Frozen is really about the patriarchal fear of women's roles in fertility, wherein men feel the need to lock women away when they start having their periods because men are afraid of the power of a woman's cycle because that is what makes her genuinely feminine.

Or some shit like that.

Who knew?


I'd tell her that when I was in college, I studied abroad.

luckily, William and Mary offers help to kids who go home only to learn how uncivilized and backwards their families are.

Patton, The Godfather and The Longest Day. I love those movies and I'm sure I'm a totally shitty male who deserves to kneel before women like this Women's Studies major and beg them to hate me.

But isn't it her sexuality in general, rather than her period in particular?

Look at what she takes time to do in her big makeover scene:



That's right! She puts a slit in the dress, while singing about how liberated she is!

Pretty obvious that her liberation comes with a side-helping of sexual freedom, and honestly, good for her.


If you play that scene backwards in super slow motion...

you'll see that in one brief flash, they embedded a large dildo in her hand, symbolizing the power of women to both pleasure themselves and beat men senseless with their own genitalia. You've come a long way, baby.


Could be. Anna was willing to give it up after one duet.

Elsa is probably fighting for an equally sexualized existence without societal slut shaming.

Now that I think about it, wasn't there some rumor or public activism about Elsa being a lesbian ?


Folks want a gay Disney princess, I guess.

As far as I'm aware, none of the fairy tales adapted into Disney films have particularly gay themes.

Lots of them are about the limits of what women can do in polite society, though.


Mulan was a cross-dresser.

are primarily straight women's fantasies. The transgression is of gender-assigned social roles, and the reward is heterosexual sex with the hunky hero (who initially saw her as a best friend.)

Sometimes the incidents of the story make this pretty clear. In Tamora Pierce's "Song of the Lionness," handsome prince Jonathan of Comte learns that his friend and page Alan is actually Alanna when a magical villain ... blasts her clothes off. Later "Alan", now Jon's squire, notices the prince making eyes at at pretty girl at a ball and takes advantage of their adjoining rooms to surprise him naked. The results can be inferred.
