Just a couple of kids (READ: NOT ACTUALLY PEOPLE AT PIXAR, JUST NORMAL BLOGGERS WITH COMPUTERS) working together to bring you the screenshots, video, music, and stills from all the Pixar movies. We love you guys, we truly do! Submit or ask anything to us any time!
And it also says heterosexual women can’t be happy being single, or if they choose to be single, they must be lesbians! Wow, commentary on social issues on a blog dedicated to Pixar’s films. Anyway, it also says a lot about female protagonists in general. Even though she’s not a Disney princess, we must compare her to the Disney princesses, and more importantly, she’s the first to not have a love interest, so this must mean she’s gay! Heaven forbid she’s a teenager who doesn’t want a boyfriend. Or a husband??????????????????????
There’s been some underhanded sexism concerning Merida anyway, but just know that if she was a prince, this probably wouldn’t even be a discussion at all. And it does pigeonhole people into certain stereotypes.
