What’s so bad about Tinkerbell? Just because she’s a fairy doesn’t mean she can’t be sexy. That’s what many people have said to me when I make this argument, but I believe them. After all, fairies are beautiful beings with the heart of gold. Fairy sexuality is nothing to be ashamed of. To suggest that they should change is to suggest that we humans are hypocrites for tolerating other types of sexuality in others while condemning our sexuality ourselves. It’s a sensitive issue, and some people will be offended by my article, especially if they aren’t familiar with Tinkerbell or her works. This essay is written from both sides of the debate; as a fan of the fairy tale and as an advocate for gender equality.
What is sexualization?
Serialization is the cultivation of sexual characteristics in children and adolescents. Although the term often is applied to children’s television programs and advertisements,tinkerbell sexualization applies to all forms of media. Contrary to popular belief, sex ya ligation does not equal pedophilia. Although the term “pedophile” is often used pejoratively, it means “one who loves children.” Pedophiles are not a subspecies of human beings, and they do not exclusively target children.
Why is Tinkerbell Sexualized?
To sexualize anything, you have to have a market for it. This usually means you have to sell it to someone. Traditionally, most children’s entertainment was aimed at children, so it has been relatively easy to sexualize. On TV, cartoons featured themes such as animals, friendship, and human relationships. On the silver screen, feature films often have a targeted child audience, with child protagonists and childish dialogue.To distance Disney from the association with pedophiles, the company has insisted that the sexual imagery in its films be removed. However, some fans and critics claim that the removal of overt sexual imagery in Disney films is not a solution to the problem. Others object to the idea of “rewriting history”—that is, of re-enacting history and removing the racist elements, sexist elements, and other offensive elements that made a particular era of American culture harmful to women and minorities.
The Problem with Sexualizing Fairies
Many people believe that sexualizing any species is unethical and/or bad for the species. However, I have yet to meet a single person who believes that sexualizing human beings is unethical or bad for the human race. If anything, it is a positive thing, as it creates more people who have an appreciation for and knowledge about human sexuality. Furthermore, sexualizing pop culture characters like Tinkerbell does not make those characters any more sexual than they were beforehand. All it does is normalize a type of sexuality that is perfectly acceptable, even desirable, in humans.
Fair-Weather Fans of Gender Equality
Some people are uncomfortable with the idea of a “feminine” or “masculine” culture. They feel that men and women should be equally represented in all forms of media and that a sex-segregated society is unfair and harmful. Instead, it is an attempt to normalize and objectify the female gender, which is already a marginalized group. By comparison, the male gender is seen as too aggressive, too aggressive in battle, or simply too much of a pain in the behind.
In the past, many people believed that the only people who should see fairy characters as sexualized were children. However, this is far from the truth. Teens, as well as young people, are often attracted to the sexual imagery in fairy stories. With the advent of the Internet, there has been an increased demand for sexually charged content, including pornography.However, there is a Peer Support Group for Lesbians, Gays, and Bisexuals (berg) that meets every month to discuss problems people are experiencing in the real world, such as same-sex attraction or the need for safe, non-judgmental, open-minded, and understanding friends. If you are lesbian, gay, or bisexual and struggling with those feelings, I highly recommend that you join the berg.
