Why are we making Disney movies so sexual?

Between interesting sexual references in the movies and Halloween, the world of Disney as an adult has been transformed from cute and innocent to sexy. I didn't want my favorite childhood movies to be sexy. I want them to remain in my childhood as innocent, sweet, and well, everything Disney should be. That, my friends, is not the case here.

Some of the most famous sexual appearances are associated with my favorite movie of all time: The Little (freaking) Mermaid. I LOVE The Little Mermaid, possibly more than life itself, but the priest getting a boner for Ursula's alter ego made me want to cry a little. Also, having owned three, count it 1-2-3, copies of the movie throughout my lifetime, I am fully aware of the phallic imagery on one of the covers of the movie. Disappointing, Disney, very disappointing.

Then there is the less obvious but still disturbing Lion King hidden message. When Simba plops down on the edge of a cliff, a swirl of dust rises up all magical and beautiful. What does the magical dust spell? How about "sex"? Yep. It says sex. Good job Disney, you perverts.

In addition to Disney's sick sense of humor, how about these wonderful Halloween costumes available? Would you like to be Slutty Snow White or Cinderella this year? Either way, the costume is available. Who knew Snow White Wore thigh highs? It's about time she did! Jesus, I've been waiting well over 75 years for this nonsense!

Basically, Disney not only made my childhood, but it relatively destroyed it as well. Not only did they plant unrealistic expectations in young girls from the get go concerning love, they sexualized their movies as well, and now, costume designers are throwing everything to hell with some sweet, slutty costumes thrown in. Don't get me wrong, I'm anything but a prude, but DISNEY? That seems like a sexy line that should never, ever be crossed.

this is hilarious. calm down. so what? children would NEVER catch any of that. i know i sure didn't and no one i've asked has ever noticed any of this stuff you're talking about.

also as for the costume? some OLDER adults like to dress like that on halloween, it's not a big deal, nor is it for the little kids. so relax. disney is still for the "good" community.

the same can't be said about it's rising stars though...

The "sex" message in "The Lion King" was not what you think. It was actually suppose to be a hidden message that read: SFX, as in "Special Effects," but the "F" was mis-read as an "E."

Most of these things are more myth then fact. This is a great article that really explains all of this:

Disney did not create Snow White or Cinderella, that's why costume designers can make "sexified" outfits and sell them legally. They are old fairy tale characters, kind of like public domain, anyone can use them.
