All hail an internet crisis is upon us! If you are of the age of fourteen or below and a One Direction fan, the chances are that you're either crying in a corner somewhere right now, or you're busy tearing up your concert tickets to their next gig. My final guess is that you're recording a YouTube video whilst simultaneously doing the above.

OK, I wasn't expecting a tiny cartoon Andrea Dworkin to weave her way through the Enchanted Forest singing a catchy melodic ballad about the devastating effect of porn on society. But before people start saying this is a 'feminist' movie, it might be worth examining it closer.

She is now gracing front covers, has a child whose name is inspired by the points on a compass and is a product created and exploited by her own mother.

I watched a trailer for a movie I didn't recognise at the weekend. It was for an animated movie about a daring, unstoppable thief having a series of misadventures. Right at the end of the trailer, we glimpsed the female character who would presumably be his love interest. It was for Disney's Tangled.

The future has a lot in store for cities. Before the end of the century planners and architects will have seen some weird briefs land on their desks as we make settlements on the moon, in digital space and roaming settlements that graze the landscape for resources.

THANK YOU for pointing out Frozen's repressed lesbian allegory, because now my family and I can re-watch the award-winning film, and the many that came before it and consume them all from an enlightened fresh perspective. We can now enjoy Disney the gay way.

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

Tony White | Posted 30.04.2014 | 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'?

'Frozen' Is Almost Perfect, Except for These Two Things...

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

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.
