SHE DOESNT UNDERSTAND THE SOCIAL CUES FOR A SECOND BECAUSE TOMMY’S FACIAL EXPRESSION SAYS ‘PAIN’ BUT THEN SHE REALISES THAT HE IS USING IT TO MASK ‘LOVE’ AND SEES THAT JANE ISNT REALLY HURTING TOMMY AND THAT THEY’RE SHARING AN EMBRACE OF AFFECTION AND ONCE SHE’S CAUGHT UP IT MAKES HER HAPPY
AND SHE’S JUST A SOCIALLY AKWKWARD AND ABORABLE BABY
Conceal, don’t feel. Don’t let them know.
"[With Elsa, it] definitely was intentional to show anxiety and depression." - JENNIFER LEE (x)
THIS IS ONE OF THE REASONS THIS MOVIE IS SO IMPORTANT.
Like yes, I agree with the major criticisms going around tumblr re: racism and heteronormativity and not enough major female characters YES, they’re all valid points. I just don’t understand the bloodlust towards Frozen more than, say, Tangled. These issues aren’t unique to this movie; they’re widespread societal problems and that leaks into our media. It can still be a good/enjoyable movie. I see you SJWers enjoying Aladdin at the same time and that shit’s racist as hell. Just because something has problematic elements doesn’t make it bad.
BUT THIS CHARACTER IS SO FUCKING IMPORTANT. Because little girls are obsessed with her, they’re latching on to her. Little girls love Elsa. And she’s a Disney Princess with major neuroses. (I know this is Anna’s story but Elsa’s more popular.) And it shows a main female character with major anxiety and depression issues, and it shows her as a powerful, strong, loving person around those issues, and it shows her as an incredibly positive character.
A lot of people are saying that the story would’ve been better if Elsa’d been the antagonist, and she was originally intended to be until that changed in development. And you know what, it’s for the best because she’s a protagonist with mental issues. It’s easy and common to give those to a villain. Villains are twisted and they hurt people because they’re not Good People. Disney Princesses might not be perfect but they’re damn close to it and their faults are charming and cute and not crippling. Elsa’s issues and her failure to deal with them are crippling.
So many teens and adults have identified with her issues, and seeing them portrayed in a positive and beloved character is so fucking important, because children see that not just scary weirdos have mental issues. Elsa hurts people because of her issues. She doesn’t mean to but she hurts her parents and sister and kingdom and strangers, emotionally and physically. And she’s a Good Guy. Not only is she a Good Guy, she’s a Disney Princess. They’re not supposed to hurt people — except oh maybe hurt feelings because they were following their dreams or something saccharine like that.
And she makes a series of bad choices, selfish choices, because she can’t deal with her issues. Just like real people. She’s not a bad person because she makes bad choices stemming from her neuroses. Little kids see someone who’s awesome! with anxiety and depression and they see that she’s more than just her issues, and she’s deserving of love
This needs to be reblogged by everyone in existence.
Yes and thank you. I watched it with my neurotypical sister and she just could not for the life of her understand why Elsa was still afraid to tell Anna and reveal herself after growing up.
"Why doesn’t she just tell Anna and get over it?" - "because she’s afraid of hurting her", “why? they’re grown ups now, she’ll understand” - "Elsa doesn’t know that, she was raised to fear it and be ashamed of it", “but she’ still hurting Anna” - "yeah, but she can’t help it, she thinks this is the least damage she can do", “I still think she’s overreacting, acting like it’s the end of the world or something”.
Reblogging because YES, this was one of the things I thought were so important.
Not to mention it also shows how parents pretty much SCREW UP their children with really bad choices made with good intentions - aka REALLY overreacting about Anna’s accident and telling her to hide her powers (as my friend Laura said about it, “how in the HELL you are going to learn to deal with something if you DON’T??”). Her parents WERE good people and wanted her well-being but huh let’s say they made a fucking storm in a teacup - Elsa could control her powers very well until they stepped in…
