You know, I am really getting tired of the ‘equine-ish animal acts like a dog’ shtick. It’s not creative or funny any more.
That being said, the snowman was actually pretty damn amusing. Not riot inducing, but still.
It looks like these two are from two different movies.
note : the bottom two are from the teaser!
lol @ the source being weather.com.
So I’ve discovered a surprising number of people I know didn’t know this, and I thought it was a common trivia, so I think I’ll mention it here:
Considering the socio-norm back in the day was to marry young women between families as economical arrangements, a new bride would find the prospect of a (usually older) gentleman who demands sex (or at least, has the expectation of sex—for consummation of the marriage at the very least) to be terrifying and beastly, and can be seen a danger on her innocence and purity.
Going by the original tale (I’ve just used the Disney screencaps just for the photoset!): the beauty (new bride) is removed from her family and home (her comfort and the only place she knows) to go live with her new spouse out of an arrangement her father was forced into (an arranged marriage), bracing herself for the worst sort of monster—one who will be violent and rageful and subject her to a life of harm and terror… only to discover that, when she lives with the beast, he’s an intellectual thrill and a delight to bond with. Still, she does not love him, and so he allows her to return home (by her own choice!), only to discover she does indeed love him when she receives a vision that the beast is sick and dying. She rushes back to his side (again, by her choice!), and through this acceptance of friendship and newfound adoration, she sees her spouse not as a beast out to consume her or ravish her, but as a man and very human, and she learns to take charge of her own sexuality—becoming a woman in her own right.
It’s an easy story to paint as romanticizing an abusive relationship, so I think it’s a pity more people don’t realize it has its roots in empowering a woman’s own view of sex and her own sexual destiny!

You probably don’t understand how much the Disney Tarzan soundtrack means to me.
I wanna know. Can you show me?
toulouse, marie, and berlioz from disney’s aristocats
poor toulouse omg they are so cute though
There’s been trials and tribulations. You know I’ve had my share but I’ve climbed the mountain…I’ve crossed the river and I’m almost there.
so i’ve seen this post go around before, but i absolutely fucking lost it today when i saw it on my dash. so here, just in case white people have forgotten how well represented they are in the Disney franchise i made you a picture of all the beautiful white Disney girls you have and have had to look up to all your lives. thats not even all of them. Hell your even getting a new one soon! (not to metion every fucking live action character)
half of the princesses of color are racist caricatures, and Atlantian isn’t a race or an ethnicity, and Tiana was a fucking frog for more than half of the fucking film.
P.S. don’t ever use the word g***y to describe the Romani People
P.P.S. Native American and Indian are two different things.
I know I’ve reblogged stuff like this before, but the image set is so popular it bears repitition.
So to repeat: you don’t actually have great representation if you have 5-10 WoC and 1000 white women. And representation isn’t about just being there, either, though that’s a big part of it in terms of what this post is purporting. It’s also about how you’re represented, and all movies with PoC in them have some troubling racial component, some more than others.
And it shouldn’t even have to be said again but yeah Ariel? Is white. Half fish, half white woman. Who turns completely into a white woman. You are literally comparing PoC to animals if the fish part is what matters here. Omg mixed race relationship still dying that even one person found that worthy to reblog
