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

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.
