why do straight ppl think they can whine about gay ppl “throwing their sexuality in our faces” when almost every waking second of every minute of every day of my life is filled with heterosexual romance media and heteronormativity. like u think 2 girls holding hands in public is rubbing their sexuality in ur face you have no fucking idea what queer people go through on a daily basis shut the fuck up

Gender dimorphism in animation at its finest.

In Frozen, we see three of the main human characters as children, then later as adults. This showcases a trend that isn’t new to animation but has been getting more and more obvious in recent years – namely, that female characters are given infantile faces on top of idealized adult bodies.

Look at Kristoff (sorry I couldn’t find a better picture of him, btw). There are numerous changes in his face between his child and adult designs, and yet enough similarities that you can tell it’s the same character at two different ages. The main difference is that his younger form is given more infantile features, such as larger eyes, a smaller nose, and a rounder face shape.

Then move down to Anna and Elsa. There’s no mistaking them for different characters at their different ages…but that’s because their child and adult designs are incredibly similar. Both ages show them with the same infantile features: large eyes, small nose, round face shape. It’s my understanding that these three people are only a few years apart in age; so why do Anna and Elsa look so much younger?

And if you’re about to say “NO, Anna and Elsa don’t have the same faces at both ages! There are slight differences in – ” then you’re missing the point. I didn’t say that Anna and Elsa’s faces don’t change, but the changes are very slight…especially compared to the major alterations that Kristoff’s design went through for his age progression.

Some might insist that it’s so Anna and Elsa are still recognizable. But again, how do you account for Kristoff being recognizable in both forms? Why do the female characters need to be treated differently than him?

Remember: Anna and Elsa are not real people, who through some random coincidence of biology happened to retain the same face as they got older. A large team of people had to design, revise, and approve them at both ages, and literally every facet of what these characters looked like was controllable.

  • it’s okay to be straight
  • it’s okay to be gay
  • it’s okay to be anything in between
  • it’s okay to be cis
  • it’s okay to be trans
  • it’s okay to be black
  • it’s okay to be white
  • it’s okay to be any race
  • it’s okay to be a man
  • it’s okay to be a woman
  • it’s okay to be anything in between
  • you know what’s not okay?
  • being an asshole and treating people poorly for being any of the above things 

Cis people who say they would never date a trans person should be equipped with a collar that shocks them everytime they come within 12 feet of a trans person because a) they deserve it, b) it will force them to realize that there are way more transgender people out there than they think and that they are all just as attractive or unattractive as cis people, and c) they super deserve it.

If you’re ever called out on being racist, or sexist, or ableist don’t avoid it, or reason, or be an asshole - listen apologize and move on.

You’re never right if an oppressed person says you’re wrong. It’s not a debate. You don’t get to decide what’s hurtful to other people.
