Fox News: ‘Frozen’ Is a Threat to Masculinity and Must Be Stopped

feministdisney:

‘Fox & Friends’ claims that ‘Frozen’ empowers women by saying all men are fools and villains, and is therefore bad for society and harmful to little boys. For the love of god.

here for your daily chuckle: our buddies over at Fox make a convincing argument that Frozen — and, in fact, media in general! — is a threat to masculinity and “real men.”

“When we bring our daughters to see Frozen or whatever the movie is we often have our little boys sitting there. Is this message helpful? We want them to know that they’re essential. We want to raise heroes. We want to raise real men.”

It’s kind of worth watching just for the ridiculous-ness and very odd connections they draw between different events. One of their chosen clips for showing how the films encourage us to see men as “evil and cold and bumblers” is where Kristoff is telling Anna that when it comes to picking their noses “all men do it.” Score one against the patriarchy. Another point of evil-izing men is that the bad guy is literally, a guy.

Like I’m not even sure what their solution is here. That villains never have a gender?? 

The dude on this program, completely unironically says: “It would be nice for Hollywood to have more male figures in those kind of movies.”

Cool! That fits right in with actual statistics that say 15% of protagonists in the top 100 movies in 2013 were women. Nothing says male figures are being excluded from media like an 85-15 ratio!
