Heads up guys. Body shaming doesn’t just happen to women. Recently, baseball player Prince Fielder stripped down for ESPN’s Body issue and here are the comments that accompanied. Now, I will acknowledge that these are all male contributes, but it’s still shining a light on fat shaming for men, and how athletes (and anyone who poses nude) are socially expected to be perfect.
I’m not going to downplay the amount of shit women get on their bodies, but I would like to point out that this made news today.
I hate everyone.
Things that Prince Fielder has that these people don’t:
- A net worth north of $100 million.
- A 50-Home Run season.
- A kind, gentle personality.
- Muscles. Lots of them.
“I want to see a demure, shy princess, like Snow White, have as many adventures and be as positive an example as one of the more modern princesses, like Anna.”
How is Snow White not a positive example? She was nice to every single person she met, including the woman who tried to kill her. She saw the good in people and tried to bring that out. She was kind to animals and felt bad for upsetting them when she was scared/upset after nearly being killed. She is a positive role model for kids and just because she isn’t a newer princess, doesn’t mean she is a bad role model.
"I think I’m the only person who thinks Let It Go is about isolation and pushing people away."
You aren’t the only one. It’s a whole song about how Elsa is finally free to be who she is because she is alone. Elsa sings this when she is at one of her lowest points in the movie. It is not the upbeat and girl power anthem people make it out to be. It is a really depressing song. It’s when Elsa feels she can only be free if she is isolated from the rest of the world. Her fears, which she believes she escaped, return when she realizes she froze the entire kingdom.
