"I used to love Mulan when I was younger. Now that I’m older all I can think about is how the only reason she was able to accomplish anything was because she dressed as a man. I don’t really think that makes her a good role model, when there are so many women in history who accomplished equally as impressive things, just as women"
Yes, Mulan dressed as a man, BUT SHE WAS STILL A WOMAN. Dressing as a man was the only way to do what she needed to do, becauese of the social pressures of her time. She RISKED HER LIFE to step out of her gender roles and save her father. And the audience was reminded of her womanhood constantly. And lets not forget this scene.
Even though she was dressed as a man for most of the film, remember that she bested Shan Yu, saved China, and earned a seat with the Emporer AS A WOMAN. That scene was everything. It showed that what really made her increadible wasn’t her clothes, but her abilities. She is an AMAZING role model. She teaches young girls (and even boys) that they can accomplish anything, despite their insecuries. She teaches us that it’s okay to over step your gender roles, but it’s also okay to embrace them to an extent. She teaches us to never give up, and to keep fighting for what you beleive in, even when those who you trusted most turn on you. Mulan is fucking amazing.
This needs to be brought to attention IMMEDIATELY!!!!!
I don’t even understand what they’re expecting anymore. if they can lie to us to our face and us KNOW the truth, what power do we have , then?
