Alive, Ariel, and Bad: waltdisneyconfessions It bothers me how male characters like Triton, the Sultan, and Chief Tui can all act very overprotective and try to stop their daughters from leaving home, but it's only Mother Gothel whose a villain because of it. It feels like a sexist double standard. takashi0: rainbowloliofjustice: lethal-cuddles: a-salty-scythe-meister: kayrowhitesyrup: someoneintheshadow456: valarie-lynn: waltdisneyconfessions: It bothers me how male characters like Triton, the Sultan, and Chief Tui can all act overprotective and try to stop their daughters from leaving home, but it’s only Mother Gothel whose a villain because of it. It feels like a sexist double standard. Triton was afraid of humans because his wife was killed, Ariel also had pretty much free range of the ocean if she had time to amass that massive collection. Sultan was…a sultan? Also probably kept Jasmine inside for her own protection. Chief Tui was terrified of the ocean because of past experience. Gothel kidnapped Rapunzel and only cared about the magic that kept her young. Yeah, totally the same situation and the only difference is sexual bias. Also…Frollo? Also Sultan said “I’m not going to be alive forever, I want to make sure you are provided for and taken care of” as the reason for why he wants to get Jasmine married. And he even says to Jafar “Jasmine hated those guys, she can’t marry someone she hates.” That shows he didn’t want her to be unhappy in her marriage.  Triton and Chief Tui know that life is dangerous. As someone who is an older sibling and helped raising her younger siblings I know that very powerful overprotective feeling. You know the dangers of the world. You know the world is uncaring and unkind. You know people aren’t afraid to play dirty and to hurt innocent people to get what they want. So you try to shield your children/siblings from such a scary world because you don’t want them to get hurt. You don’t want your child/sibling dying because someone was so uncaring of another life. Could triton and Chief tui be more understanding of their children’s dreams and passions? Yes! But again these are parents who faces the harshness of the world and wanted to protect their children from that. Jasmin is a princess, royalty are always going to have someone try to kill them, invade their lands, etc. at least sultan was allowing his daughter to choose the man she loved. He was aware of the dangers she faced but still wanted to make her happy. A lot of Disney parents are loving and caring and they want the best for their children, though sometimes like all parents they mess up along the way. Raising and caring for another human is tough. Frollo and mother Gothal are seen as villains because they aren’t trying to protect their “children” from the harshness of the world. Oh yes they say they are but it’s a way to control them. It’s a way to keep their “children “ under their thumbs. It wasn’t done out of love and care and a protectiveness. But control. Gothal only want repunzal for her magic hair to stay young forever. And Frollo didn’t think twice about killing a BABY! ^^ Disney dads truely only wanted what they felt was best for their daughters (sans Frollo). Mother Gothal kidnapped a baby and emotionally and mentally abused her for 18 years. ALL TO STAY YOUNG FOREVER BY USING HER HAIR! fucks sake The reason that mother Gothel is treated like a villain is that she has no actual care towards Rapunzel other than her magic hair.  Literally none.  Every other time, she’s emotionally and mentally abusive towards Rapunzel, lies to her, and gaslights her. She’s manipulative and everything she did was for her own benefit, not out of genuine love and care for Rapunzel.  That’s why she is treated like a villain. It isn’t a sexist double standard when she is genuinely abusive.  Meanwhile, Chief Tui, Sultan, and Triton have made mistakes dealing with their children but what parent doesn’t make mistakes? It shows them being people. People who wanted the best for their children even if they were overbearing or overprotective. One thing that has been relatively consistent among Disney is that they show parents as people who are not as understanding as they should be towards their kids but ultimately still good people who just want to do the best thing for their kids rather than showing them as ungodly saints who never make mistakes and never do anything wrong.  Hell, even though she isn’t Disney per se, you could easily include Merida’s mother as a counterpoint in all of this. Elinor behaves in similar ways that Chief Tui, Sultan, and Triton do regarding their daughters. Elinor is overprotective and overbearing, she destroyed Merida’s bow out of frustration and immediately regretted it, etc.  Yet she is never shown to actually be a bad person. She’s shown to have made mistakes, just like they did, but not an awful person or villain.  #tldr; the reason mother gothel is a villain is because she’s emotionally abusive#me thinks the person who submitted this didn’t really watch the movie#because you can see every moment of abusive that she puts rapunzel through…#STARTIGN WITH KIDNAPPING HER

Comfortable, Party, and Respect: Simone Policano 28 Mar at 01:26 A note on consent I filmed a scene today with a young child actor who had to quickly peck me on the lips as I tucked him into bed. The moment in the film is supposed to be somewhat uncomfortable, unexpected. I've gotten to know him over the past five days of shooting - he is a remarkable, kind and intuitive kid. He often appears much younger than his 12 years of age, waving his flashlight under a blanket and singing DISSSSC000 PARTYYYYY!!, but now and again an old-soul quality of his blinks up at me through messy light brown hair. He had read the script so he knew the kiss was coming, yet when the production team walked through it for blocking we'd gloss over the moment, nervous about making him uncomfortable. He's young and doesn't know me all that well and it's a lot to ask of a kid who met you five days ago. But eventually we had to run it, because that's what you have to do. And so when the director said we were going to do it for real, our young actor pulled me in for a sec and whispered "Hey Simone, I want to make sure you're okay with everything that happens with the kiss. Do you feel okay? Please tell me if l'm ever doing too much or if I hurt you or make you feel scared." This took many times longer to say than the kiss would take to film. True to his word, after every take of a .3 second peck, he grabbed my hand and whispered Was that okay? Did you feel okay?" And then we'd high- five and he'd burrow back under the covers to resume his flashlight disco party until the next take. Hes 12. Don't let anyone ever tell you that the male inability to understand consent is innate. It is learned <p><a href="https://ima-fuckingt4ble.tumblr.com/post/172674966466/levicooksupsomebullsht-yourownpetard-the-male" class="tumblr_blog">ima-fuckingt4ble</a>:</p><blockquote> <p><a href="https://levicooksupsomebullsht.tumblr.com/post/172611141730/yourownpetard-the-male-inability-to-understand" class="tumblr_blog">levicooksupsomebullsht</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="https://yourownpetard.tumblr.com/post/172604400093/the-male-inability-to-understand-consent-the" class="tumblr_blog">yourownpetard</a>:</p> <blockquote><p>&gt;the male inability to understand consent<br/><br/>The what???</p></blockquote> <p>are we just going to ignore that the <i>12 year old boy</i> in this situation is expected to be responsible for the consent of an <i>adult woman</i>? Boy’s not even an adult and it’s <i>still</i> his responsibility for women’s comfort and safety even when <i>he’s</i> the vulnerable one in the situation. </p> <p>Does she absolutely not see the <i>glaring double standard</i> of men, regardless of age, having to take responsibility for women’s boundaries but women are not obligated to actually communicate their boundaries or respect men’s boundaries. </p> <p>Even when a boy is young and vulnerable he still manages to have empathy and take responsibility, and she makes it entirely about shitting on men.</p> </blockquote> <p>!!!!!!!!!!!</p> </blockquote> <p>I literally thought this is going to be about how important it was for her as an ADULT to make sure the CHILD was comfortable and didn’t view the situation as sexual but no we had to take a hard left turn into feminist bullshit.</p>

She and the rest were hyping up the guy for a kiss. there’s was no verbal aggression being used on the boy in the video.  I think you’re being a bit too far stretch here. Also, the attempt assault, is it really? I mean yeah she did unexpectedly kiss the boy when he uncomfortably didn’t want to. I guess you can say it is an assault, but for some reason, how come I’m not seeing it as one? I mean I do agree if either one of the guys were hyping up a 19-year-old female to kiss them on the cheek and slip them a smooch unexpectedly, they would be fired and be seen as perverts. But for Katy, I don’t know, might be gender roles. I’m not trying to sound bias or ignorant here, and if so I apologize please correct me, but I don’t see anything wrong here in the video except Katy and everybody saying he wasn’t in the for cut when he just needed more practice on his vocals since he did mess up on one of his parts. The guy was nervous after what just happen to him, but tbh he could'vee stop midway to take a breath of air to calm himself down.</p> </blockquote> <p>Let me ask you this: if a 19-year-old girl had come in there and it came up that she had never kissed a boy because she was waiting on a relationship and Luke Bryan had said “what!? You’ve never kissed anybody? Come up here! Come on up here come on come on! Kiss me!” And the girl said “no ahhaha no I don’t really… I mean… on the cheek?” and Luke said “yeah fine on the cheek“ and so she begrudgingly did it and then Luke made fun of how weak the kiss was and told her to do it again and then snuck a kiss on her mouth, would you be OK with it? Or would you call it what it is: harassment and assault?</p> You’ve pretty much already admitted that you would see it differently if one of the men had done it so obviously there’s a double standard here. It’s not OK just because Katy is a pretty lady. Pressuring and cajoling people into physical contact they do not want is messed up no matter who’s doing it.

She also stole the “pathetic attempts at being edgy“ thing from Miley but the difference is that Miley went through that stage when she was in her late teens and early 20s and Katy is closer to 40 than 20 and should know better.</p>

Instagram, Life, and Memes: Seal Says His Instagram Post Was Not An Attack On Oprah; Tells Stacey Dash To Keep His Name Out Of Her Mouth @balleralert Read More: www.balleralert.com Seal Says His Instagram Post Was Not An Attack On Oprah, Tells Stacey Dash To Keep His Name Out Of Her Mouth – blogged by @MsJennyb (Swipe) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Earlier this week, after Oprah Winfrey’s powerful Golden Globe speech that launched the unofficial “Oprah2020” campaign, Seal took to Instagram to call out the legendary host. At least that’s how it initially seemed. But, according to the singer-songwriter, we’ve got it all wrong. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Let me start by saying that I have an enormous amount of respect for everything that Oprah has achieved and contributed in her life,” Seal said in a video, just before clarifying his Instagram post which accused Winfrey of being apart of the sexual misconduct problem in Hollywood. “What I reposted was not an attack on Oprah at all, she just happened to be the person photographed with the pig in the picture.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Seal’s photo included two photos of Winfrey with Harvey Weinstein, whose sexual assault allegations propelled the MeToo movement, where people share their stories of sexual misconduct, assault, and harassment. The picture was overlayed by text that read, “When you have been part of the problem for decades. But suddenly they all think you are the solution.” The singer posted the photo amid the massive wave of support for a potential presidential campaign for the host. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “No. What I reposted was a commentary on the hypocritical and double standard nature and behavior of Hollywood. So Fox News, back off! But, I’ll get to you later,” he said. “Next, to those of us who support the MeToo Movement, just know this. Not one of the women who have been sexually abused, not one of the women who has come forward has received any real justice, whatsoever.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Losing your job because you either, A. raped, B. sexually abused or even sexually harassed a woman is not real punishment......to read the rest log on to BallerAlert.com (clickable link on profile)

Ali, Creepy, and Finn: TSNOT A DOUBLE STANDARD. Reversing the roles doesnt releave a double standard. Have you ever heard of the term "creep" being applied to a female? Men are the dominant gender physically - this is why they are able to rape women. If a 30 year old man says to a 13 year old to hit him up in a few years, its creepy because its dangerous. He is able to physically impose himself on her already. Flip the roles and you have a wafer thin model doing the same to a 14 year old boy. Not only would the boy almost certainly like the attention, and validation of his looks at such an insecure age, but there would be no sense of danger or creepiness as in most cases such as this one, the 14 year old boy is probably more physically dominating than the model anyway. This is why it is not creepy and furthermore even a gesture that is nice and would boost the boys self esteem. The world is way too pc cracking down on harmless exchanges like this. <p><a href="http://thylovelylionheart.tumblr.com/post/167290252577/libertarirynn-making-sexual-comments-to" class="tumblr_blog">thylovelylionheart</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="https://libertarirynn.tumblr.com/post/167289477034/making-sexual-comments-to-underage-girls-is" class="tumblr_blog">libertarirynn</a>:</p> <blockquote><p>“Making sexual comments to underage girls is creepy and wrong because men R scary but it’s fine to do it underage boys and it probably makes them feel good anyway so nbd”</p> <p>Shut</p> <p>The</p> <p>Fuck</p> <p>Up.</p></blockquote> <p>when Finn Wolfhard (the <i>14 y/o</i> <i>child</i> actor the person in the photo is referencing) was asked about the comment the model made about him, he literally said, <a href="http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/tv/news/finn-wolfhard-stranger-things-model-comment-ali-michaels-instagram-season-2-cast-a8043291.html"><b>“Oh that was nuts. That was gross. That’s good that she apologised, it’s weird but…it’s fine.”</b></a></p><p>He didn’t find the comment “flattering”, he found it gross. It’s even clearer in the video where he said that quote how uncomfortable this situation makes him. The model essentially catcalled him, an underage boy, over social media, and yet some people are trying to insist that it’s not creepy. </p><p>And yeah, saying that it’s not inappropriate bc Finn’s a boy and the model is a woman but that it <i>would</i> be inappropriate if the genders were flipped is absolutely a double standard, and a disgusting one at that.</p></blockquote> <p>Well there you go. Even if he had found it flattering it would be irrelevant. Do these people actually think there are no girls who enjoy that kind of attention too? As the ADULT in situation it&rsquo;s your job to know better. But the fact that he was creeped out by it just strengthens the point further. He didn&rsquo;t think it was funny or hot so shut the hell up.</p>
