What do you think of the following videos analysis of masculinity in Disney movies? I share my thoughts below the video. Please share your feedback after watching the complete video!
While this short documentary does not acknowledge many of the characters its relying on are the “Bad Guys” in the film, the analysis does hold true for the “Good Guys” too. Think of how good looking by magazine standards all the “Good Guy” characters are in Disney Films (true of female characters also). Even after the Beast returns to being human in “Beauty in the Beast,” he remains a strong male with the physique described in the documentary above .
Does such imagery affect consent and respect? If you grow up thinking its the “Man’s Job” to take control, are you likely to “Ask First” and give your partner a choice? Share your thoughts below.
