Feminism has fought no wars. It has killed no opponents. It has set up no concentration camps, starved no enemies, practiced no cruelties. Its battles have been for education, for the vote, for better working conditions, for safety in the streets, for child care, for social welfare, for rape crisis centres, women’s refuges, reforms in the law. If someone says, ‘Oh, I’m not a feminist’, I ask, ‘Why? What’s your problem?’
These fictional characters are details in a product, and criticism of the decisions that go into making that product is no more awful than criticizing the design of the new iPhone. It’s not hurting the iPhone’s feelings, it’s about Apple. And trying to pretend that criticism of a multi billion dollar company like Disney is actually picking on a little girl is so so so amazingly dishonest, and willfully trying to dodge the real issues.
