Of course, RS McCain and Smitty do not “hate” they just note that several Disney child stars have, how should I put this delicately, gone the slutty route. RS McCain calls this Post-Disney Deviance Syndrome
Post-Disney Deviance Syndrome deserves scrutiny as a cultural phenomenon. As a parent, it seems like one minute your children are watching some cutesy little kiddie sitcom on Disney Channel and then — fast-forward — topless photos, DUIs, rehab and nervous breakdowns.

Well true that several recent Disney child stars have, well imploded to some degree. But, I feel the need to point out that so far anyway, Hilary Duff is doing well. Married, to a hockey player, and when was the last time an NHL star got into trouble, a mom, and yes HOT! By the way, as a side note, no NHL player would ever go Brett Kimberlin and accuse his wife of being NUTS! Would they? No, but then again, NHL players are men, not whiny bitches like Brett Kimberlin. Now, back to something MORE important, Hilary Duff being hot
Oh good grief! Can’t people lerave kid’s movies OUT of politics? Honestly!
Disney is in for it now. It’s been accused by academics of failing to promote sexual perversion in its movies for children:
Researchers at the University of Michigan have concluded that the love stories told in classic Disney and other G-rated children’s films — such as the Little Mermaid — are partially to blame for the pervasiveness of what they label “heteronormativity.”
“Despite the assumption that children’s media are free of sexual content, our analyses suggest that these media depict a rich and pervasive heterosexual landscape,” wrote researchers Emily Kazyak and Karin Martin, in a report published in the latest issue of the Sociologists for Women in Society (SWS) publication Gender & Society.
Kazyak and Martin said they studied the role of heterosexual relationships in several of the highest-grossing G-rated films between 1990-2005.
The results, say the researchers, illustrate two ways that the children’s films “construct heterosexuality”: through “depictions of hetero-romantic love as exceptional, powerful, transformative, and magical,” and “depictions of interactions between gendered bodies in which the sexiness of feminine characters is subjected to the gaze of masculine characters.”
“Characters in love are surrounded by music, flowers, candles, magic, fire, balloons, fancy dresses, dim lights, dancing and elaborate dinners,” the researchers observed. “Fireflies, butterflies, sunsets, wind and the beauty and power of nature often provide the setting for — and a link to the naturalness of — hetero-romantic love.”
