Disneyland worker tells mom and military wife to cover up her cleavage

feministdisney:

Pretty ridiculous. I’ll mostly just say check out the links (the above or a somewhat shorter version on Opposing Views) and the excerpts from both I’ll drop into here, and put my thoughts at the end.

‘This gentleman out of nowhere comes up to me and just says,”’You need to pull your top up,”’ she told 10News. ‘I was looking at him like, “Excuse me? Are you serious?”’

This is a family park. You are showing too much,” the employee allegedly said. 

"I guess women with large chests are expected to wear turtlenecks their whole lives,” said Behnken to 10News.

Behnken says her husband had just returned home from deployment and they had been excited to take their three children to the resort for their first family vacation. After the incident, however, Behnken says the rest of the trip was ruined.

Now, the California mom has filed a formal complaint with the park as well as one with the Disney corporation. She says that in the week since the incident happened, Disney has reached out to offer an apology on behalf of the employee, but Behnken says she hopes they take it a step further.

“Maybe they need to do more exclusive training on what is OK to say to people that come there,” suggested Behnken.

Disneyland reportedly has a policy deeming clothing that “exposes excessive portions of the skin” as inappropriate for the family-friendly park, but Behnken’s apparel barely showed any cleavage at all, as evident in the family’s pictures taken at the park prior to the incident.

disney woman ordered to cover up

My thoughts:

  • Unless people are actually running around naked, it seems like this rule invariably comes down to the judgment of employees, which can be biased. Even if her top had been cut lower? If you don’t want people wearing “skin revealing” outfits, stop placing your theme parks in 90 degree weather. Otherwise, there’s a bit of a correlation. I should know — I’ve fainted just standing in line for Universal.
  • Definitely a case where the bodies of women with larger boobs are inherently seen as sexual no matter to what degree they cover up, because large boobs will inherently not look the same as small boobs in the same shirt. Short of wearing a turtle neck, they will often “peek out”
  • A ridiculous thing to say to a family — that their mother is not family-friendly
  • This is not the first time and unlikely to be the last time that it is clear that, even though the majority of employees are respectful and great, many lack clear guidance on issues like this

Gender-bent Disney princes make meaningful point about the fluidity of gender

To combat the strict stereotypes that Disney princes and princesses represent, some geniuses at Imgur have started swapping the genders of Disney characters. Genderbent Disney shows that Disney clearly gets a little lazy when it comes to reusing their character molds, making it surprisingly easy to look more feminine. To make a male character look more classically feminine, for example, all you need to do is round the chin, soften the jaw and make the nose a little slimmer.

But with the simplicity of these alterations — a few millimeters of nose, a different hairstyle — Disney accidentally makes a meaningful point about the fluidity of gender expression.

PRAISE BE

Wendy’s is doing the same thing.
Will wonders never cease.

Reblogging this because it keeps showing up on my dash and I keep not-quite raining on the parade, but it seems like everyone thinks this means something different than it does, so I guess I’ll rain on it a little bit.I’m afraid this motion has nothing to do with conquering the gender binary or whatever Tumblr is really happy about to be reblogging it so heavily. It’s not about making little children feel like they can get whichever toy they prefer. It’d be nice if it was, but I’d be shocked if that was the case.No, the girl toy here is a My Little Pony. Which means that the *real* reason for this notice is that a bunch of bronies, as there are bajillions of photos and videos of them doing, are coming into fast food restaurants and buying several happy meals. They threw pissy fits when asked if they wanted the “boy or girl” toy, insisting that My Little Pony isn’t for girls or whatever, again, only saying this because of overwhelming evidence that bronies do this shit. Management eventually has enough of it, asks employees to just ask if people want Skylanders or My Little Pony so they won’t have any more disgusted bronies getting mad that their precious fandom is targeted at crappy dumb little girls.
So the short version is: this little paper unfortunately means the exact opposite of what you think it means, socially speaking. It was put up because grown-ass men get all pissy when it’s suggested that they like a thing for girls.
