But it’s also frustrating that so many men buy into the gender myths. Because I am attracted to men and I like male bodies. A lot. I’d intellectually like to be attracted to female bodies. After all, I am attracted to myself. Who would’t be? Look at this body. Yeah. That’s what I said. When I saw myself in the mirror. But alas, I appear to be more moved by the appearance of male-bodied creatures than female. Sexually. My loins are into it. My mind approves. All this leads me to believe I am straight. Now what?
What do you get when you mix Zack Snyder’s horribly, horribly, sexist movie Sucker Punch with the horribly sexist Disney princesses from a half dozen animated movies? Well, intentional or not, you get a riveting story of female liberation!
This amazing trailer mash-up by Breanne Brennan works on several levels. First it serves as a stunning indictment of Sucker Punch by demonstrating just how perfectly the action flick plot matched up with cliché Disney cartoons. On a more subversive level the remix appropriates audio from Snyder’s misogynist film and re-frames the narrative to give us a new story in which Disney princesses liberate themselves from their own sexist movie representations. Breanne’s creative re-editing and juxtapositions manage to actually create the empowering message Sucker Punch so utterly failed to deliver on any level.
