- This is my growing collection of re-captioned Disney scenes.
- Because they all exist as separate tumblr posts, I would ask that you refrain from copy/pasting them out of here and into your own tumblr uncredited. Reblogs from the original are fine. Most of the originals should be fairly easy to find so long as you go to google images and search “Feminist Disney” + name of movie/name of characters in the image. Let me know if you have issues.
- These images are also more or less in chronological order (making them easier to find if you want to reblog, so seriously, don’t copy paste), which is kind of embarrassing because some of the earlier ones are pretty… not great/boring! I didn’t start up this blog intending to be “Feminist Disney” but these images are what started me moving in that direction, and there is definitely a progression from random to full frontal feminism.
- If you want to use them for an article, your own blog about feminism+disney, or other places where they will only appear once and not be reblogged 1000 times uncredited, it’s fine, credit my site somewhere if you can.
- It’s been fun making them- I’ve learned a lot through all the commentary people have added on to them in reblogs (unfortunately, you are obviously not privy to those discussions here)
- personal favorite
- this is basically the image that helped make my site sort of popular. Or at least propel it to have more than 50 followers lol
- I thought about excluding this one but I figured so long as it’s here it might serve as a reminder to always be checking your language even when you think you’re saying something harmless. I would have ignore the note on the bottom, since I was able to figure it out/people replied. It’s been a while since I wrote it but I think- at least it appears- that this was edited after the fact, while keeping the bottom note
- after this image I started adding commentary below every image, so I have included it here
“I can’t pretend I don’t have some rotting branches; we can’t pretend our privileges don’t exist just because we do not like them. To relinquish the power they hold, we have to constantly expose them for what they are,” Grandma Willow concluded, and gave John a pat on the back with one of her drooping branches.
“And don’t even get me started about white history month,” Esmeralda warned him. “The same goes for that. History is a construct. People with power decide what gets remembered, what gets forgotten, and what gets misconstrued.”
“All right, I’ll go for it,” Hercules concluded. “I’ll start training toward being a strong feminist. But not because you wanted me to. Because I wanted to.”
Melody still suspected there was something fishy about this explanation, and decided to get out of the giant clamshell and find out for herself what feminism does for people and merfolk.

Beast admitted that this was, indeed, a poor defense of his ideas, and he eventually realized that he was dismissing the valid and thoughtful viewpoints of many people that agreed with Belle by claiming some sort of de-sensitized superiority.
it was Feminist Kick-Butt Revolution Time.
Pocahontas successfully nipped Meeko’s hipsterish tendencies in the bud
Dr Pepper’s new spokesperson scoffed when asked why the well-known feminists Meg and Hercules were avoiding the drink.
“We feel very comfortable with our brand image right now,” he insisted, “Despite the fact that today’s so called ‘heroes’ are avoiding it. So what if Hercules doesn’t want to support a company that relies on misogynistic humor? Who cares what Hercules does? He’s a ZERO, and our product is a TEN. Get it? Dr Pepper ten? I crack myself up sometimes.”
He steadfastly refused to discuss the fact that the brand’s perception, even among men, has been flat and the soda’s buzz scores are now “worse than flat.”
She said, her tentacles twitching with dissatisfaction at this stereotypical media representation.

“Well,” said Milo, pushing his glasses up with a huff, “Your entire civilization forgot its system of writing even though, at the very least, you and your father were both alive before the flood that apparently destroyed your knowledge. Why blame me for a massive plot hole that seemingly only exists to propel the ‘Mighty Whitey’ trope?”
“GOD Lilly, it’s like they completely don’t get what it’s like to be a modern teenage princess!” Mia exclaimed.
“This reminds me of all those magazines that give you 200 tips for losing weight and ‘looking great’ and then tell you that their secret tip is, ‘confidence is what will really attract people to you.’ It’s like society wants to shame you for not living up to their ideal, and also shame you if you don’t try to live up to it,” replied the mirror.
