Masculinity in Disney Films

The older I get the more Disney scares with all the underlining meanings in films. Many parents allow their parents to tune into these movies because it is deemed appropriate for the age group. The youth admire these characters in these movies, they want to dress and act like them. These movies teach girls and boys how they are suppose to behavior. They teach girls how to talk it out and make up,then they teach boys how to fight it out and defeat their opponent. Teaching them to dominate others for power and control. How to interact with women, they are something to be saved and they should be objectified. Most often teaching them to be emotionally detached initially.  They are suppose to be aggressive and physically dominant.  Anybody that is not muscular is usually portrayed as weak or even clumsy. Men are taught to fight and maintain status from youth.
