hi! I hope I don't come off as mean, but I was stalking you aus and I realized you like Grease and I was confused because I always see people claiming it's sexist.

Nah dude don’t worry <3.

I do like Grease (and would love a throbb grease au, never made a mystery of it) and umh the thing with the “Grease is sexist” is that, while I understand where it comes from, it usually depends on a series of general misunderstandings or… not having seen Grease. 

  • The Musical is mainly about peer pressure, with teenage rebellion, social expectations, sexual exploration (and love, of course) and takes certain even strong positions for its time (1971) and the time it was set in (1959), like the light it shows Rizzo in and how it allows the female characters to actually explore their sexual and romantic life, while not shying away from showing also how people would judge them poorly for it;
  • Danny Zuko is a disaster, who keeps trying to impress his friends at the start and, noticing this brings him to hurt Sandy, decides to stand up to them and explain that his feelings for her are important. Danny does start like a bit of a Toxic Masculinity Ken Doll, but through seeing the consequences of his behavior decides instead to stop it. Also the narrative calls out Danny on multiple occasions, but since the start basically with Summer Nights ( She swam by me, she got a cramp / He went by me, got my suit damp / I saved her life, she nearly drowned / He showed off, splashing around ) where it is clear that he is not as “cool” as he tries to be and he wants to impress his friends, that he has trouble expressing his honest feelings (as one can see later, when they get honest and melancholic about how they miss each other, they separate from the groups, while in front of both groups they are both performative, implying personal honesty can’t exist when belonging fully to a social group) (like it’s plain to see idk why people misses that) but also that she did like him for who he is and that how he acts or his “peacock” mask is going to be a thing he has to get rid off (and he does later for her).
  • A lot of people misunderstands the color scheme/aesthetic for a gender roles / heteronormativity approval from the writers, more than simply the observation that heteronormativity behaviors do exist irl and people tend to conform to them due to society.
  • There is also to say the famous Pink Ladies with their pink jackets that people accuses of being sexist dreams are actually girls standing up to do what they want and trying to liberate themselves sexually. They are not the 50s housewife types.
  • The whole “she changed for him” deal, that is… not really what happens. What happens is that they both do things to change for one another. Danny joins the track team, stands up to his friends, dropping the Cool Boy mask, while Sandy stops playing “Sandra Dee”, learns to take risks and not to be afraid of her parents. The typical scene used as proof of this sexist view is the duet “You’re the one that I want” where Sandy comes dressed in a way more revealing manner (except… it’s still set in the 59 so her wearing pants for how attached is not her adopting a submissive position towards Danny, but just joining him into a world that is less the social norm) except it magically often cuts the start where Danny says fuck you to his social expectations and embraces the idea of changing for Sandy if that’s what she desires. Turns out, she also had things to get rid of and during the duet not only Sandy holds the upper hand (You better shape up […] If you’re filled with affection you’re too shy to convey meditate in my direction) but she drops the social norms that would want her to be totally submissive and shy and waiting for Danny to change and do the move and stuff. No, she comes, states her feelings not in afflicted and vulnerable way like in Hopelessly devoted to you but firm and strong and basically shouts a giant I LOVE YOU BUT GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER to this huge dork that in the meantime joined track team because he thought Sandy wanted to be Sandra Dee and have her Jock bf. I put here the movie version because it’s the most famous.


  • I’ve also seen people calling it somehow too heterocissexist and heteronormative (then again, there was a critique there and it was the 70s, but what is seeing things critically through historical times) but that doesn’t seem to me a very serious critique. Like it seems to be originating more from how people misinterpret the show than from what the show actually is, and it seems to me like most people who say it don’t seem to see the line of parody and making fun of itself that the musical holds.
  • Also Warren Casey (one of the two authors with Jim Jacobs) was a gay man AIDS victim and I’d like… accusing a gay man of being heterocissexist is a bit out of line imho. Also in the Grease Live and some new editions they made also gay couples at the performances and I thought it was an extremely sweet move and probably Warren would have appreciated it <3 . There was also a beautiful lesbian version with a Drag King as Danny but I can’t remember the production rn ;__;.
  • There is also a lot of interpreting of Grease as about sexual liberation for women and girls. And it was hugely important at the time this thing, because nowadays it may seem our society is not really into slutshaming and is a bit more overly sexually-pressuring, but at the time slut shaming and the repression was huge and especially on girls. There is an interesting online article here: “Like Hair before it and The Rocky Horror Show which would come a year later, Grease is a show about repression versus freedom in American sexuality, about the clumsy, tentative, but clearly emerging sexual freedom of the late 1950s, seen through the lens of the middle of the Sexual Revolution in the 1970s. It’s about the near carnal passion 1950s teenagers felt for their rock and roll, the first art form that actually changed human sexuality.”  “Also like Hair, Grease is about authenticity, the watchword of that first rock and roll generation. Teen sexuality has been an issue in America since the invention of the rumble seat, always moving forward like a freight train, forever going faster and farther; and Grease is a snapshot of America right before teen sexuality exploded, examining the early cracks in the armor of middle-class “respectability” and repression, the fantasy American Dream that never was but that came beaming into Americans’ homes over the television airwaves. Movie star Sandra Dee becomes Grease‘s overarching metaphor for the artificiality of adult American life, a symbol that needed piercing.” “ Many people are uncomfortable with the show’s ending because they miss the fact that Sandy doesn’t actually become a slut in the finale; she just learns how to dress like one, finally letting go of the tendency of too many Americans to stigmatize sexuality as dirty and shameful. She gives up the desexualizing poodle skirt that hid away her female form and replaces it with clothing that reveals and celebrates – and takes ownership of – her body and its adult curves. This is not a descent into decadence for Sandy; it is a throwing open of the doors of her moral prison.”
  • The legend about Sandy becoming Danny’s fantasy instead of him becoming her and therefore Grease being a parody of female fantasies is also a misinterpretation of what the authors wanted (x). “Jacobs explained that he and Casey wanted to upend the rock ’n’ roll movies “[…] we wanted the guy to stay cool and the girl to join the motorcycle gang.”There are plenty of those stories — and of their inverse, stories of “good girls” made to pay for bad choices. (“The Scarlet Letter,” anyone?) “Grease” is at root pretty subversive, insisting that young women want the same thing young men do.”
  • R I Z Z O. There are worst things I could do is such a fuck off to slut shaming in society that is almost unbelievable which time it comes from.

Grease is far from perfect, it is silly, it has its weird moments and it has an aesthetic and jokes that do play on gender roles, but it has and had its power and charm imho. It rejects part of the gender roles, although not completely (then again 1971, guys), it gives female characters freedom to chose what to do with their sexual life, it points out how sometimes society and groups pressures teen to adapt to the point a couple meant to be almost loses their love out of bullshit and true love wins only when they both reject stuff and start being themselves.

Sandy doesn’t change for Danny, she just throws away what society expects a girl to behave like. 

Danny doesn’t keep his toxic group shit, he states what he wants and he is ready to change his whole reputation for the girl he loves. 

This is why Grease is adorable to me, because these two fucking different people realize who they are and find the courage to grow up just because they want to be together.

AAAAND yes it’s not perfect, but damn for a 1971 product it’s great and if some people takes from it just that she changed because they don’t pay attention to Danny’s evolution or misinterpret the lyrics decoding it through contemporary implications (“put up a fight” is not a rape joke, it’s still about sexual repression on girls) or if some people decide it was actually conservationism and stuff like that… this doesn’t speak about the product, it speaks about how people interpret it.  So idk give it a chance, maybe it’s really TOO SILLY for you, maybe it’s just too dorky, but at its roots this musical doesn’t want to be sexist. Quite the opposite.

This was right after Wagamamas (I ate so much that I pretty much just wished for the sweet release of death, so full.x_x) We were just tryna get a picture with all the pretty Christmas stuff in the background but there were these gross chavvy girls who were screaming and throwing McDonalds and bits of paper and shop catalogues all over the place and they came like charging/waddling over to us and started literally screeching “TAKE A PICTURE OF ME I’M A LIVING DOLL TOO” and we were like um… what…?? so we were like right yeah lets just leave, then the big gross ring leader went like charging after Jake (who had the camera) and it looked like she was about to grab either my camera or him and I kinda got between them and was like “Don’t fucking even.” and she went ballistic and was like “WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE UGLY BITCH” blah blah and it was just like omg go away you look like something that lives under a bridge and eats goats had a baby with a potato. We just left asap, I hate when people try to ruin lovely days out.>:C
