I can’t even handle how absurdly offensive and ridiculous Emma’s wedding dress is
like truly. I can’t.
I really, honest to God, thought that AT LEAST they would have the decency to put Emma in something–anything–that even approximated ANYTHING of her character’s personality or general fashion choices. Like that bar was something I thought was low enough that I didn’t need to worry that much.
And they made her into a Grace Kelly cosplay what in the ever living fuck were they THINKING?
Also double misogyny points for implying Emma is feminine and vulnerable and somehow Uniquely Her Own Person Now in a…pretty standard and old fashioned wedding dress???
Emma can be feminine in whatever she goddamn wants to be, and also feminine is not an intrinsically Good Thing (nor is vulnerable tbqh)
Like the implication is that Emma’s journey has lead her to femininity–embodied in a white wedding dress from the 50s– and that is…gross and sad and quite frankly hurtful to a lot of people.
The level of implicit contempt for women who are not *feminine* (esp queer ones) is really undeniable at this point.
It’s not just, “oh, JMO put Emma in weird button-up florals because she doesn’t get costuming” which was One Thing
this is a show problem and it’s a misogyny problem and it’s a heterosexist problem.
And as someone who loves Emma Swan and relates to her…it fucking sucks.
