over the years, a lot of people have taken issue with the idea of a feminist critique of children’s movies, and so forth

I think at its core, though, and looking at feminism in terms of how it applies to larger concepts than just children’s media, that is the point. Feminism should make you uncomfortable at times. If it’s comfy and fits like an old sweater from the moment you step into it then you’re probably missing something

Feminism isn’t about just taking your favorite characters and seeing how you can-refavoritize them… it’s about (in this context) looking at media and seeing who has been excluded from it. And then taking that, and seeing how certain groups are marginalized all the time, in real life, in ways that affects their experience with poverty, education, the justice system, etc., with the continuous feedback loop from media. And then it’s going from there to see what you can do about it in your everyday life.
