I thought this reading was really interesting. Growing up, I never really thought about any of this. I always just saw the cartoon as a cartoon. I never sat down and realized the message some of these cartoon movies are sending out. After reading this piece I felt like my Disney childhood was completely flipped upside down.
One of my all time favorite movies is Shrek. Right when I read this, I actually realized the message Shrek was sending.... if your not a princess, then you are a ugly ogre. Which is a terrible message to send out. You do not want little girls or boys if their not a prince or princess their nothing. Everybody should be told when their young that everybody is equal. Nobody is better than anybody else.
I actually am glad we go to read something like this because I found it very interesting that a "innocent" company like Disney would portray a bad image for little kids. Everything they say or do seems to be so perfect and nice. I just could not believe Disney could send a message like that.
