When people use Elsa not getting a prince at the end of Frozen to hate on all the other Disney princesses who fall in love

A WOMAN CAN BE STRONG WITHOUT A MAN.

A WOMAN CAN BE STRONG WITH A MAN.

LOVE DOES NOT MAKE PEOPLE WEAK.

I’ve been waiting for this post for so long. What’s so wrong about falling in love? It’s what we’re put on this planet for, isn’t it?

I get the sentiment, but I’d amend that to just say “love” instead of ‘falling in love’.  Humans need many different types of love, and they’re all important.  It’s great when media aimed at girls acknowledges that.

Also, the issue some people have with Disney princesses and marriage isn’t because marriage is bad or love makes you weak or feminists are man-haters.  It’s that heteronormative romance is always presented as the solution to her problems and the One True Way to Happiness, regardless of what her actual wants/needs are at the beginning of the film.  Frozen, for all its flaws, actually did a great job of deconstructing that. 

And in the real world, marrying someone because you think they’re going to fill the emptiness in your life (or because you think they’re an acceptable substitute for what you really need to fix in your life, or because you crave the validation, or whatever) is a recipe for one super unhealthy relationship.

Roger Rabbits special effects still fucking hold up by todays standards AND looks better than most films that come out NOW it was that ahead of its time

I’m still amazed that Hoskins had that little to work with. Everything about this video is awesome.

This made my day.

Dreamworks is doing something even Pixar hasn’t tried: A black female heroine

DreamWorks Animation Studios has announced the addition of a black female heroine (gasp!) to its repertoire of white dogs, green ogres, snails, Neanderthals, pandas, white people and Antz. In doing so, it joins an elite club consisting of … well, nobody.
Not one major Hollywood studio has released a computer animated feature starring a black character.

You guys have all heard of Lumberjanes by now, right?  I’m happy to say that my exclusive cover for Lumberjanes #1 is for sale at Challengers Comics in Chicago (my hometown!) coinciding with Noelle's signing there this past weekend. I think the whole Lumberjanes crew is ace and I'm excited to have contributed to such a girl-positive comics series, drawn and written by awesome ladies!
I’ve been watching a lot of River Monsters and I really liked the idea of setting the Lumberjanes off on a canoeing adventure with an unexpected catch. I’ve since been informed that the canoe I drew totally looks like a vagina. It was unintentional, but I’m more than ok with that! By ladies for ladies, amirite??
