ANN ARBOR, Michigan, June 24, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Researchers at the University of Michigan have concluded that the love stories told in classic Disney and other G-rated children's films - such as the Little Mermaid - are partially to blame for the pervasiveness of what they label "heteronormativity."
"Despite the assumption that children's media are free of sexual content, our analyses suggest that these media depict a rich and pervasive heterosexual landscape," wrote researchers Emily Kazyak and Karin Martin, in a report published in the latest issue of the Sociologists for Women in Society (SWS) publication Gender & Society.
Kazyak and Martin said they studied the role of heterosexual relationships in several of the highest-grossing G-rated films between 1990-2005.
The results, say the researchers, illustrate two ways that the children's films "construct heterosexuality": through "depictions of hetero-romantic love as exceptional, powerful, transformative, and magical," and "depictions of interactions between gendered bodies in which the sexiness of feminine characters is subjected to the gaze of masculine characters."
"Characters in love are surrounded by music, flowers, candles, magic, fire, balloons, fancy dresses, dim lights, dancing and elaborate dinners," the researchers observed. "Fireflies, butterflies, sunsets, wind and the beauty and power of nature often provide the setting for - and a link to the naturalness of - hetero-romantic love."
The SWS press release on the research blamed what they called the "old ideals" of romantic relationships, specifically those found the Brothers Grimm fairy tales, which in many instances inspired the films' storylines, for "such heavily gendered depictions and glorified portrayals of heterosexual relationships."
The team says the results point to heterosexuality achieving a "taken-for-granted status" "because hetero-romance is depicted as powerful."
"Both ordinary and exceptional constructions of heterosexuality work to normalize its status because it becomes difficult to imagine anything other than this form of social relationship or anyone outside of these bonds," they concluded.
"These films provide powerful portraits of a multifaceted and pervasive heterosexuality that likely facilitates the reproduction of heteronormativity."
The SWS press release concluded: "President Obama may have declared June to be Gay Pride Month, but entertainment for children therefore continues to perpetuate a less inclusive message, leaving those outside its confines with little to build their own dreams of happily ever after."
Sexuality expert Dr. Judith Reisman told LifeSiteNews.com (LSN) yesterday that the "politically correct" study reveals "the growing dominance of Heterophobia within academia and the spread of heterophobes among female professionals."
"Now, if the Ladies of the Sociology Society think pornography is becoming the heteronorm and that Disney is contributing to that form of what is really Heterophobia, they might have an argument," Reisman noted.
"However, the Ladies of the Sociology Society appear to favor Homoerotic child propaganda, as the current academic party line dictates."
So what comes next, I wonder? Disney got on a tree hugging kick some years back (Pocahontas and Fern Gully come to mind) but seem to have gotten over it once they lost serious money (Did anyone even see the sequels and yes, there WERE sequels to those pieces of shit!). Will we now see a Disney adaptation of "Romeo & Juliet", to be more aptly titled "Romeo and Julio" ?
When trash like that tanks at the box office will we see revised fairy tales distributed to local school districts (as often happens with tree hugger flicks) , including mandatory viewing by all children K-12? A few years back that question would have been viewed as so outlandish it never would have been asked. These days it's a different story.
These fools don't quit. First they want it "accepted" that their perverted tastes constitute an acceptable lifestyle, then it gets shown as perfectly normal (check out the flicks "The Jane Austen Book Club" or "The Family Stone" if you don't believe me.) At the same time we're seeing an aggressive push for the "experimentation" of homosexual acts in the sex ed classes of local schools. Now this crap comes up.
Please note that heterosexuality is cast in the report in a negative light. Those damned heteros, just pushing their view of sexuality and refusing to be "inclusive". Pretty soon wanting to kiss a pretty girl will be a capital offense if you're a man, but perfectly okay if you're a dyke.
Thinking about it a bit further, it isn't just heterosexuality being denigrated by inference. It is traditional morality as a whole that gets attacked by reports such as the one referenced. This has gone on for decades now and we're seeing an increase in the assaults. It's as if a critical mass has been reached, we now see that aberrant behavior is not just defended but actively promoted. Defenders of traditional morality are cast as bigoted hatemongers who pick on the defenseless and innocent.
It's gone beyond being funny, it's downright grim if you're a parent of young children. Seriously, we're fighting for the right to have our kids learn it's acceptable to be attracted to the opposite sex.
If that isn't sick and bizarre, tell me what is?
With hate crime bills being pushed through the national legislature and the mindset exhibited in California during the runup for voting on Propostion 8 it seems we'll soon experience active persecution. Look for the voices of morality and conscience to be muzzled, all in the name of "diversity" and "fairness". The justification will be found in reports issued by ivory-tower intellectuals and rubber-stamp think tanks for special interest groups.
Soon the children of those who protest will be removed, ostensibly for their own good. The IRS will be crawling up the asses of the newly demonized. All that will be missing is a set of chains to be fastened before we're cast into the outer darkness.
See you in the reeducation camps.
