Mayim Bialik is on a rampage – and princesses are going down. On Tuesday, the “Big Bang Theory” star posted a blog entry about why she hates one of Disney’s highest grossing princess-themed films of all time. The outspoken actress posted to the Jewish parenting blog Kveller.com on Sept. 16 and declared that she despises the blockbuster Disney flick “Frozen.”
The mom of two and neuroscience Ph.D. revealed that while she knows she’s “going to get so much hate for this,” she still has to protest the movie’s underlying themes and desperate female characters. “The sister’s desire to marry this guy she just met, and the other sister getting mad at her — we still have a plot about the identification of a woman being based on her desire and search to meet a man,” she wrote.
But Bialik’s biggest issue with the flick has to do with the animation of the female characters. “They have ginormous eyes,” she wrote. “Like really ridiculously big. Teeny-tiny ski slope noses … Barbie doll proportions of their bodies in general: tiny waists, ample busts, and huge heads. They look like dolls.”
It’s not the first time the former “Blossom” star has used her blog to express her opinions about how females are portrayed. Last week she posted that she doesn’t want her sons Miles, 9, and Frederic, “learning about sex from billboards.” And she pointed to pop princess Ariana Grande’s new billboard in which the scantily clad pop princess poses in a provocative position.
“I will go ahead and admit I have no idea who she is or what she does,” Bialik wrote of the “Problem’ singer. “Based on the billboard, she sells lingerie. Or stiletto heels. Or plastic surgery because every woman over 22 wishes she has that body, I’m sure. Why is she in her underwear on this billboard though? And if she has a talent (is she a singer?), then why does she have to sell herself in lingerie? I mean, I know that society is patriarchal and women are expected to be sexy and sexually available no matter what we do in society, but I guess now I need to explain that to my sons?”
Before her princess problem, Bialik made headlines in the past for her parenting style. The actress wrote a book on attachment parenting, and in 2012 she told Time that she was still nursing her 3 ½ year old son during the day. And she also dished on her family’s sleeping situation. “I have never owned a crib or a bassinet,” she wrote on her Today Moms blog. “Our family bed consists of two futons on the floor side by side. We don’t co-sleep, which means sleeping in the same room; we sleep in the same bed. That’s called bed-sharing.”
