Fiction Is My First Language, So Why Not Use It to Talk About Art?

Tony White | Posted 03.03.2014 | UK Entertainment
Tony White

Alongside my more traditional literary fiction, novels such as Foxy-T (Faber and Faber), I have been writing short stories about art for a few years now. Perhaps that sounds odd: writing fiction about art. Isn't that (to quote Martin Mull) 'like dancing about architecture'?

Brave's glorious Princess Merida walked that talk by rejecting the idea that a bunch of strangers should compete with each other to marry her. Instead, she competed with them to win her independence. Which she did. Go Merida. That's some impressive feminist ideology right there.

Feminist Disney

Gemma Parry

Many are questioning whether Frozen is the first feminist Disney movie but, to me, Disney has never been anti-feminist in previous films. Disney films were made to prove to young girls that women can stand for something and be successful and that, should they find their Prince Charming, he is found through hard work, dedication, patience and persistence.

The fact that young adults cannot talk about sex or drugs openly without being condescended is not just disgusting, but seriously alarming. It means that any kind of education presented to adolescents regarding these two very large topics will be conditioned, manipulated and probably wrong.
