Podcast Shout Outs:

Flutter: So Love Really isn’t a Fairytale?

What a fitting end to this, sparkling first season of Bad at Love Podcast. Mallory and Tamu discuss an interview Keira Knightley had with Ellen where she talked about banning her three-year-old daughter from watching Disney movies like The Little Mermaid.

Moral to the Story: No matter how problematic the subject, it can be viewed and discussed in order to better understand it rather than banning it. 

Other Fun Topics Discussed:

  • Mallory thinks it is inevitable that kids will end up watching banned Disney movies, etc.
  • Check out the book, Cinderella Ate My Daughter.
  • Even if situations in pop culture are problematic, they can be explained. Tell kids the truth, make it a discussion.
  • The happily ever after fairytale myth is ingrained in us; starts with Disney and ends with Hallmark/Lifetime.
