  • Disney teaches "Girls are fragile, they need men!"

    In every movie, the princess gets rescued by a man. In the disney world, No One is ever gay, women always need some sort of a man to come and save them. It gives girls an unrealistic expectation of perfection. They have to be beautiful, and if they are, life will be easy and perfect.

    The shows are just completely without moral or purpose whatsoever. (Except gravity falls)

  • It's complicated and simple

    Effectively: stereotypes are generalizations and generalizations is the high school equivalent of a cardiologist. The latter you get around age 17 after finishing high school and the latter at 27 after specialization and med school. If I ever have a heart condition I will see my cardiologist, not my high school friend.

    In the end, however, the person/parents decides what to watch, because Disney exists to make money not to raise your kids. So since Disney is no place to raise your kids, take more walks and enjoy your neighbors, etc. Disney is not good, and it's bad, but it's not the company's responsibility to be GOOD/MORAL. It's like alcohol, too much is bad, just the right amount takes you away from all the crap of human society.

  • Disney gives subliminal messages and goes against God

    What are subliminal messages? Well, let's read this: How do they work?
    There are two forms of these messages; the good and bad. Neither is caught until after the release of a the movie, or sometimes at all. This is because subliminal is intentionally configured to pass below the threshold of one’s conscious perception. For example; the message will not be apparently audible or visible to the conscious mind, but audible or visible to the subconscious mind. Therefore which in theory, you will not remember seeing nor hearing the message at all.The good subliminal messages can actually improve a factor. For example, a study was done in a movie theater when before a movie, small text quickly flashed “Go buy Popcorn.” After the movie, when the psychologist asked if they saw anything to that nature on the screen, they said no. However popcorn sales increased dramatically by half compared to when the phrase was not flashed. This and multiple other studies proved how subliminal messages affect your subconscious state of mind and affect your behavior without you realizing it.
    Now Disney REALLY started to get popular in the 1950s. Before that, conventional things were valued. Most people obeyed parents, etc. Now when the people who grew up watching Disney in the 50s grew up, in the 70s, THAT'S when people started to be disobedient (i.E. Hippies). And from the 70s, things just kept getting worse as Disney kept getting more and more popular. (hmm..) Now look at us. SO many things that weren't even mentionable, are ACCEPTABLE! And Kevein Rn right. Disney is going against things in the bible, as well. The bible says in Leviticus 20:15-16 - And if a man lie with a beast, he shall surely be put to death: and ye shall slay the beast. And in Deuteronomy 27:21 - Cursed [be] he that lieth with any manner of beast. And guess what Disney made a movie about? Yep, that's right! A girl falling for a beast! Sure, he was a man, but so what? If the beast was just a beast, I'm sure Disney would have some complaints, so they HAD to make it about a man that TURNED INTO an animal. But she's still falling for him, an animal. And it's just FINE! The bible also says 2 Chronicles 33:6 - And he caused his children to pass through the fire in the valley of the son of Hinnom: also he observed times, and used enchantments, and used witchcraft, and dealt with a familiar spirit, and with wizards: he wrought much evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger.
    And what is Disney all about?! What do you always hear??? ABOUT THE MAGIC OF DISNEY. Mickey Mouse, the wizard. God says NO, and Disney says YES, it's all good! In a bunch of Disney's movies there is magic. In fact, in almost EVERY one! Wizardry, magic, sorcery! And Disney's promoting it all as GOOD! Disney, in a nutshell, is bad.

  • Disney's older films are racist and sexist

    While yes, recently Disney has made advancements in both categories with films like the Princess and The Frog and Frozen but the older films do have offensive messages. For example the work scene in Dumbo all of the workers are African Americans. While some may argue that during the time it was made that was how society was it is not okay to still be showing our children these movies today. Not to mention the unachievable body shape of every Disney princess and their relation to men. When you evaluate all these things one should come to the conclusion that showing young children these kinds of images is harmful.

  • No respect for Parents

    In every Disney TV show the stupidest person in the house are the parents while the smartest are the children. In the Movies every main character is either an orphan or their parent dies in the movie. So their message is clear. Kids are best when the parents are dead or gone and the logical conclusion is not to listen to your parents.

    Also their TV shows are completely unbelievable w/ every child owning a phone,computer,TV and of course the latest Mall clothes while you will NEVER see anyone w/ pimples, in a wheelchair or ugly unless they are the "nerd" who is recognized by wearing glasses & ugly clothes.

    No, Disney just teaches the wrong things to our children.

  • It gives misleading messages.

    In the Little Mermaid we are told to change for your man. In other fairytales we are told that beautiful people are virtuous and will be rewarded but ugly people are evil. (like Cinderella) Also,in fairytales we are told that good girls are passive and don't have to lift a finger to improve their life, but if you are a bad girl you are assertive. Surely it's better to be a good, assertive girl?

  • So many implied morals

    In SLeeping Beauty we are told that good girls are passive, and bad girls assertive. In The Little Mermaid we are told to change for our man. In Cinderella we are told beauty is virtuous, while ugly or imperfect is evil. Also, Disney creates a world that says everyone is perfect. Disney is unrealistic.

  • Bad content and lessons for kids. And subliminal messaging.

    Now let's see, in The Rescuers, they show the image of a woman being topless and bra-less. And in the Ancient Egypt movie, the pharaoh is shown with no clothes and yet his butt is shown WITH NO UNDERWEAR. In Hannah Montana, there is a girl being a brat. Explain!

  • Little girls beware

    Disney, disney, disney...What are you thinking? Your movies, sexual; your characters, degrading and unreal. It gives little girls false hopes. They resemble strippers. Another thing, the princes are drop dead gorgeous, they don't have a chance of getting a guy that good looking or nice and sweet (and keeping him) unless they put out on the first date... Do you dads want your little girls going out with scum? They may seem like Prince Charming, but they are really Jafar. Another thing, Snow White, she's 14, Pocohantas, sold to a European. Jasmin didn't cover anything. Also, Snow White was made in 1950. Her body is no longer realistic, so if you want your kid to look like that, tell them to say goodbye to happy meals! Also, notice most girls only get saved due to their drop dead gorgeous bodies and flawless skin. Disney is not good for children or anyone really.

  • It's okay girls, a prince will save you - if you're pretty enough!

    The Disney films I watched growing up consisted of:
    -Beautiful princess gets fooled/trapped/kidnapped by evil witch (you can tell she's evil because she's ugly and old.)
    -Handsome prince saves day.
    -They get married and live forever in their perfect world where no one is black, disabled or gay (unless they're evil of course.)

  • Disney is Great!

    Disney movies are great for children, and have been at the foundation of learning ever since it first began. Typically, Disney movies have moral values and lessons to be learned, and most often without violence or confrontations. They are typically playful, and keep the entire family unit entertained because they add humor that only adults will understand.

  • Disney Provides Positive Confidence in Children

    People keep saying that Disney Princesses are bad role models because of their figures, instead of focusing on body image you should focus on characteristics. Children love to act like their favorite Disney character! They do not care about body image they just want to be strong, smart, and nice just like their favorite character. Children only focus on body image when their parents point it out. The message Disney is positive because it is all about how to be good and creates a good message about helping others and following your dreams.

  • The best thing ever!

    There may be some bad things or adult jokes in Disney, but there also is in Spongebob. If Disney is bad for us, then why aren't people saying other kids' things are too? Disney is for all ages, not just kids. There is a ton of jokes kids will get, so why can't there be some for adults and parents too?

  • Irresponsible and childish parents are bad for children. Not Disney.

    It's up to the parents to parent their children. Disney is just harmless entertainment. Your children watch you a lot closer than they do Disney shows. They look up to you not the cartoon characters. So if your children are misbehaving then maybe you should be a better role model.

  • Yes, Disney is bad for children.

    Disney shows fairy tales and yes they are meant to be unrealistic but still they show the same concept; the girl falls for a boy and live happily ever after and that is the way it should be. Not many movies or shows portray life lessons or set examples. Disney in my opinion says that there should always be someone to rescue you and norms are expected to be lived/followed.

  • Disney gives a child a fun childhood.

    I was raised watching so many Disney movies and I today understand the problems going on in Disney. Disney is showing their method of influencing children. Yes, they want money so they won't put things most parents will not approve of. Like for example, they not going to put gays or lesbians or overweight people[not saying I'm against gays or overweight people}, they are going to lose many viewers. Lastly, its the parents decision to let children what they want and all Disney movies have a nice story.

  • Disney gives a child a childhood basically.

  • Yes, Disney does tend to apply stereotypical ideas of gender roles int their movies,

    But its an entire different statement when asking if Disney is bad for children. I say Disney is not bad for children because they use ideas of gender roles but somewhat breaks them to teach a moral lesson to children. Although princesses like Cinderella, Snow White, and Aurora live in somewhat harsh conditions thus waiting for their prince to come along more recent movies have rebellious princesses that goes against these. Movies with recent princesses shows life lessons for kids to use on in life in a fun way. And lets not forget its a FAIRY TALE.

  • Disney's Purpose in Life

    The purpose of Disney is to entertain people specifically children so why should it be a big deal if the characters are not realistic. When it comes to entertainment the characters shouldn't matter, I believe that whether you think something is entertaining is more important than what is used to accomplish this.
