I’m secretly seven bunnies in a trench coat
I WAS GOING TO PUT THIS IN THE TAGS, BUT HOLY SHIT I HAVE JUST SEEN THE METAPHOR!!
There was a calm moment of “…Wait. Did she just metaphorically pick up masculinity and leave femininity behind in its place?” And I was impressed with that symbolism.
But then the metaphor got better. Because here, Mulan is swapping one for the other. Yet, by the end, when she comes home at the end, her father tucks the flower behind her ear and then her man shows up with the helmet— BECAUSE MULAN IS AWESOME AND KICK ASS AND SHE HAS BOTH FEMININITY AND MASCULINITY AND BEING COMPLETELY ONE OR THE OTHER TOTALLY DOESN’T SUIT HER.
ALSO, at the end of the movie, to defeat Shan Yu, she uses the fan, a feminine symbol to wrench the sword, a masculine symbol, form his hands and save the day. :)
Disney can be surprisingly brilliant at times.
The above are some of the reasons this is one of my favorite Disney movies. See also: the “princess” rescuing the “prince”
