It makes me happy that Disney isn’t the sole provider of animated entertainment anymore. I love them but they have their issues. All their females are stick thin, they continue to use Rapunzel’s face and they have problems with diversity. I’m so thankful for Cartoon Network, DreamWorks and all these other companies.

The feel of having amatonormativity thrown in your face is like how Rapunzel feels when she’s trapped in her tower and wants to get out. In the song “When will my life begin” you can see that her face has that expression of boredom in the later part of the song, especially when she finishes brushing her hair. For us aromantic asexuals, the amatonormative culture that we live in is our tower, and we want to leave that tower so that we can be free.
