Walt Disney, not so innocent.

first they teach kids that nudity is fine- where is mickey's shirt? and donald's pants? WHY IS DAISY HALF NAKED!? am i the only one concerned about this?

then, they become sexist. WALT DISNEY IS EFFING SEXIST OKAY!

if you cant read, this is a letter from HR rejecting a women;s application to work as a cartoon artist because she is well, a women. AND this is written by a women.
Walt Disney brainwash us with stereotypical images and characters of female, and male.
so disney is telling me that a woman's only worth is her beauty, and her happiness relies on Prince Charming? So this maybe a little too extreme, there are a little bit more to the disney princesses that is being said here but still, it is very true that Disney Cartoon stereotypes female. All they Snow White, Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty do is clean the house and serve people, as if its the best jobs in the world! try scrubbing the floors while happily singing a tune, that'llmake your day. And have you ever heard these princesses said anything intelligent except: "Oh, when will my prince charming come?" or "Oh! what a mess!". Even the tough and smart ones - Ariel (little mermaid), Wendy (from Peter Pan, Mulan) are still insanely thin and beautiful and at the end have a happily ever after because of a boy.

Boys are not let of the hook to, unfortunately. honestly, no one really cares about the boys, coz, they have hardly any character in the movie, we dont even know his name.
can u guess the answer? haha

Okay so this is more applicable to the more traditional Walt Disney Movies. The new ones like Shrek and Enchanted do use this gender stereotype that they themselves have created as a joke and satire. But still, how many more films out there still stereotype their men and women? ALOT. and i'll happily name you some and elaborate more on this matter when i have the time.

oh Disney, and u made such great cartoons.

disney is not only stereotypical, they are very racist too!

look at tom and jerry, if you could recall, in the earlier years tom's owner is a black woman, but because of the black-vs-white community issue, she was eventually replaced with a white woman.

talk about instilling values at a young age!

yes, disney is racist. Look at the disney picture i put up. and most of the disney products out there. Mulan and pocohantas is almost always neglected. The faces of the disney princess are always all those white chicks.

honestly, disney only seems innocent. theres so much more besides their racism and sexism that we dont know yet.

and i havent even gone into their company economics issues!

By the same token, your own data is also easier to access.
There's also a robust community of international aid and development bloggers who offer suggestions and critiques for how development can work better. While the decision to move this quickly from such a purchase to the company's
IPO has some speculators worried about the company's future profitability, this is certainly not a concern for Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Similarly, Twitter allows people to communicate via 140-character tweets, and Instagram is a photo-based type of social media. Red Flag #1: If They Look Too Good To Be True They Probably Are.
