At just shy of a year old, my kids aren’t watching much TV yet, but I will readily admit to using Netflix as a temporary babysitter when I have a headache or just want (need) to finish a cup of coffee uninterrupted. Overall, my favorite Disney classics have stood the test of time fairly well … except for the weird questions that pop into my adult head while watching the beloved characters of my childhood. More
Let’s get this out of the way first: no, Disney has not inadvertently revealed the name of a secret Frozen sequel by securing a bunch of Internet domain names related to the phrase ‘strange magic’. No matter how much you want it to be true. More
When my twins were a few months old, I decided to watch a few of my favorite movies from my childhood, thinking that it wouldn’t be long before I would be sharing these classics with my children. Then I watched Dumbo and Lady and The Tramp, and learned that watching some of these movies was going to involve a whole lot more social commentary than I had anticipated. More
A Latin-American author is suing Disney, saying the company ripped off her autobiographical novel to make their blockbuster film, Frozen. I found her novel. She does have a sister and has been to a cold mountain, so there’s that.
Look, if you want to dress sexy on Halloween, more power to you. I find the cultural obsession with “Slut-o-ween” obnoxious, and yet another male gaze-enforced, societal catch 22 for women in which we’re expected to be sexy but — gasp! — not that sexy! Do you, this Halloween – in whatever outfit that might be. The best part of the holiday – IMHO – is that it gives you ample opportunity to embarrass your kids by wearing something ridiculous (family costumes FTW). And if you are in the mood to show some skin this October, might I suggest one of these super hot Disney costumes? Because why be a sexy nurse when you can be a sexy Jack Sparrow instead? More
The announcement was met with a Twitter-storm of fury with park fans wanting the 26-year old attraction to stay right where it is. Frankly, I do not see the big deal with Frozen replacing classic ride Maelstrom at Epcot because the goal of the Disney parks is clearly, to make money. More
Most people feel very strongly about the movie Frozen, one way or the other, especially if those people are part of the ten-and-under age group and are currently agitating for you to buy them an Elsa costume for Halloween. As it turns out Mayim Bialik is one of those people too, but her feelings toward the film are on the chilly side, and for some seriously off-the-wall reasons. Frozen isn’t feminist enough! Also, it bashes men! Slow down, Bialik, all this eye-rolling is making it hard to read your blog. More
Parents are allegedly spending thousands on limited edition Frozen dolls after retailers suffer a convenient “doll shortage.” More
Artist Saint Hoax‘s new “Princest” series may be disturbing, but they also make an important point about child sex abuse. More
As many know, fashion is Minnie‘s passion! And, as a result, she’s been invited to show her bows on the runways of Paris. Inside Minnie In Paris, readers are treated to a stunning tour of famous Parisian locations, from the … More
Richard Dawkins and Angelina Jolie got into an argument about teaching kids fairy tales, and I think he’s right. They’re silly and kids should be skeptical. More
An Amazon customer with an eye for details thinks Disney may be repurposing old Tangled merchandise and selling it because they can’t keep Frozen merchandise on the shelves. Is anyone surprised by this? Disney is smart. Disney is wily. Disney is not going to miss an opportunity to sell parents a bunch of crap with a Frozen label on it.
A former Disney star is defending X-Men director Bryan Singer by claiming that since he didn’t rape him, he must be innocent. More
Your kid doesn’t get a Frozen doll. Too bad boo hoo, now they will grow up and hate you. That’s what you get parents, that is what you get! But I have a solution for you, oh boy do I ever, because I’m an amazingly smart person and I will share my wisdom with you so your dumb kid will stop whining about their dumb lack of Disney branded bullshit you will end up donating by next Easter anyway.
