Omg you need to WATCH THIS TED TALK RIGHT NOW

It’s (almost entierly non-problematic) feminist: yes

It talks about social ques given to children through kid’s movies and the whole Magical Quest trope: yes

It talks about raising boys to respect women in a way that’s not just chilvarly: yes

It’s written by a man: yes

Watch, listen and learn, because this guy knows what he’s talking about. It’s important to teach the right lessons to both girls and boys.

This is fantastic, funny, and extremely true. Both girls and boys need to learn together that they’re equal, not just “girls can be powerful” and “boys can be powerful”. take a sec to watch this, dashboard!

“…the story where the boy is a hero, who defeats the villain through violence, and collects his reward, which is a woman with no friends and who doesn’t speak.”

WHAT A GOOD LINE THOUGH

Yes! This is perfect!
