"I’d just had a baby at the time and I was feeling really fat like I was never gonna get hired again and all of the sudden I get the call, they want me to be on Glee and I get the script and I turn to page 35 and it says this whole thing, I’m gonna play the mother to the lead girl on Glee who on real life is 25 years old. So, um, it wasn’t the best day of my life but I figured ‘glass half full, glass half full.’ So, anyway, the thing is, I’m looking through the script and it says it’s gonna be this whole mother/daughter reunion thing and then we’re gonna sing Poker Face by Lady GaGa. And I was like, I don’t know, I mean, I’m not that prissy of a person, you know, but… Poker Face?! Cause I always sort of associated that song with some other things and.. there’s other… words on that song… baked goods… and I don’t know, but I said ‘glass half full, glass half full, I’m going with it. I’m fat and I need a job!’”
"OH MY GOD FROZEN DISNEY ONLY EVER DOES MOVIES ABOUT WHITE PEOPLE THEY’RE SO RACIST I HATE THEM"
Disney only does movies about white people.
How they never have
any people of color
from any other cultures
And they totally glorify the white man
And totally marginalize their plights
And overall refuses to give children of color characters to relate to
Those racist bastards.
THANK YOU, someone said it.
There are 11 Disney princesses. Four of them aren’t white. They are all of different colors because the “one of each color” idea only applies to those who aren’t white. White princesses are treated as the norm and the default.
That is a problem.
That is a legitimate problem.
No one brings these problems up just to hurt white people’s feelings.
You realise lots of those white princesses are OLD right? Some may even have been during a time when people of different ethnicities were not fully integrated like they are now.
Also, lots of these stories are taken from original tales around the world that just happen to have a majoratively white culture. It’s not like they’re all from one country…
I’d also like to point out that the initial comment didn’t say that it was disney PRINCESSES that weren’t diverse, just disney movies in general…
More of the modern Disney films do address different cultures and that should be celebrated not frowned upon because there aren’t more. Times have changed and so have movies. Give them a chance to catch up. (and yes I know it’s been a while before you criticise me for that comment) but there were already a lot of disney movies, give them a chance to catch up number wise is all.
Damn, tumblr sucks these days with all this crappy PC crazy thing… Just respect one another. sheesh.
