Christensen...What we don't see on TV

The article talked about how different films affected how children see different ideas. One article I found talked about how people will take in ideas of different topic without even knowing it is happening. This article had a quote:

This is a graph that someone did about the different characters.

This is so true, children see how others are acting to someone because of their skin color or the belief someone might have about how they live their life. It is importuned that parents talk to their children about a type of film they might see. In every film, their are hidden ideas about different beliefs. It is sometimes hard to see but the ideas are their you just have to take a step back when you are watching the film. There are ideas about PDA and how we show affection toured people or it could be how we look at someone that is wearing surety types if clothes.

This is the idea of a great American family?

It might just be a picture of a girl but look a little closer. This shows people how they should see them self. It also shows how we should see others. What makes it so importuned to look like this?
Oh, I know is goes back to SCWAAMP. It is the ideas that we have already have had put in our head from birth.

This girl's picture is perfect and she only had to change herself a little, right? She has all name brand items so she is importuned, now. Her husband is a great white male leader and owns a lot of land.

This is what I am looking for in the man of my dreams...he owns a big house, white and a great leaders.

I was watching a Disney movie with my children the other day and was really breaking what was going on in the movie. In the movie Frozen, I never stopped to think about how one of the girl's has to ask for help from a man and that the girl's are both white. The girl's have to find someone to marry so that the male can be king.  I do understand that ideas are taken from history of kings and queens but why not make a movie about the times we are living in now. 
In a lot of the movies that the mothers have dies like Bambi, Finding Nemo, The Little Maid Mermaid, Aladdin and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. A lot of them are like this because Walt Disney himself lost his mother. This shows that sometime film makers will make film on their past and put their feels about an idea into a movie. By the film maker doing that, it makes you like or believe in the same ideas and you don't even one he is putting the ideas in your head.

  Not all the ideas are bad, you just have to make sure you take a good look and understand what the movie is trying to say about different ideas in life.

What is your Princess learning?

With all the images we see is makes it so that we believe we should look one way. Knowing the rules of how you "should" look, makes use change how we really look by make-up, clothes and surgeries. I makes me think that we have an idea of an image of how people look inside of a birdcage. The cage has bars that are made from advertisements, parents beliefs, friends, government, doctors and so on...


  1. You brought up some really great points here! I totally agree with what you're saying and referred to your blog for the Extended Comments part of my post. :)

  2. I agree with Mary Abby you have brought up really good points and your pictures make what you are saying so much stronger.

  3. You're last picture was really powerful! I never thought about what the princess did to get their princes. Its strange to see everyone picking apart the movies I grew up with.
