waltdisneyconfessions It bothers me how male characters like Triton the Sultan and Chief Tui can all act very overprotective and try to stop their daughters from leaving home but it's only Mother Gothel whose a villain because of it It feels like a sexist double standard takashi0 rainbowloliofjustice lethal-cuddles a-salty-scythe-meister kayrowhitesyrup someoneintheshadow456 valarie-lynn waltdisneyconfessions It bothers me how male characters like Triton the Sultan and Chief Tui can all act overprotective and try to stop their daughters from leaving home but it’s only Mother Gothel whose a villain because of it It feels like a sexist double standard Triton was afraid of humans because his wife was killed Ariel also had pretty much free range of the ocean if she had time to amass that massive collection Sultan was…a sultan? Also probably kept Jasmine inside for her own protection Chief Tui was terrified of the ocean because of past experience Gothel kidnapped Rapunzel and only cared about the magic that kept her young Yeah totally the same situation and the only difference is sexual bias Also…Frollo? Also Sultan said “I’m not going to be alive forever I want to make sure you are provided for and taken care of” as the reason for why he wants to get Jasmine married And he even says to Jafar “Jasmine hated those guys she can’t marry someone she hates” That shows he didn’t want her to be unhappy in her marriage Triton and Chief Tui know that life is dangerous As someone who is an older sibling and helped raising her younger siblings I know that very powerful overprotective feeling You know the dangers of the world You know the world is uncaring and unkind You know people aren’t afraid to play dirty and to hurt innocent people to get what they want So you try to shield your childrensiblings from such a scary world because you don’t want them to get hurt You don’t want your childsibling dying because someone was so uncaring of another life Could triton and Chief tui be more understanding of their children’s dreams and passions? Yes! But again these are parents who faces the harshness of the world and wanted to protect their children from that Jasmin is a princess royalty are always going to have someone try to kill them invade their lands etc at least sultan was allowing his daughter to choose the man she loved He was aware of the dangers she faced but still wanted to make her happy A lot of Disney parents are loving and caring and they want the best for their children though sometimes like all parents they mess up along the way Raising and caring for another human is tough Frollo and mother Gothal are seen as villains because they aren’t trying to protect their “children” from the harshness of the world Oh yes they say they are but it’s a way to control them It’s a way to keep their “children “ under their thumbs It wasn’t done out of love and care and a protectiveness But control Gothal only want repunzal for her magic hair to stay young forever And Frollo didn’t think twice about killing a BABY! ^^ Disney dads truely only wanted what they felt was best for their daughters sans Frollo Mother Gothal kidnapped a baby and emotionally and mentally abused her for 18 years ALL TO STAY YOUNG FOREVER BY USING HER HAIR! fucks sake The reason that mother Gothel is treated like a villain is that she has no actual care towards Rapunzel other than her magic hair Literally none Every other time she’s emotionally and mentally abusive towards Rapunzel lies to her and gaslights her She’s manipulative and everything she did was for her own benefit not out of genuine love and care for Rapunzel That’s why she is treated like a villain It isn’t a sexist double standard when she is genuinely abusive Meanwhile Chief Tui Sultan and Triton have made mistakes dealing with their children but what parent doesn’t make mistakes? It shows them being people People who wanted the best for their children even if they were overbearing or overprotective One thing that has been relatively consistent among Disney is that they show parents as people who are not as understanding as they should be towards their kids but ultimately still good people who just want to do the best thing for their kids rather than showing them as ungodly saints who never make mistakes and never do anything wrong Hell even though she isn’t Disney per se you could easily include Merida’s mother as a counterpoint in all of this Elinor behaves in similar ways that Chief Tui Sultan and Triton do regarding their daughters Elinor is overprotective and overbearing she destroyed Merida’s bow out of frustration and immediately regretted it etc Yet she is never shown to actually be a bad person She’s shown to have made mistakes just like they did but not an awful person or villain #tldr the reason mother gothel is a villain is because she’s emotionally abusive#me thinks the person who submitted this didn’t really watch the movie#because you can see every moment of abusive that she puts rapunzel through…#STARTIGN WITH KIDNAPPING HER Meme
