Somewhat unhinged. If not now, then elsewhen.  This is a mirror
for my brain.

“Listening to the timbre of the conversations at the Dane County Farmers Market, one of the largest in the country, you’d think the topic was vaccination or Gaza. “What exactly is in this scone?” “Are your emus happy? How much space do they have to roam free?” “When you say ‘flour’ on the label, what kind of flour is that?”

Yet food pantries remain full of the same canned pumpkin and expired boxed meals they always have. Obese people are shamed and told what to eat, while people deemed skinny enough to have an eating disorder are also shamed for not taking care of their “health.” There is a serious disconnect here that should tell anyone who’s paying attention that this is not about justice or health in any form––it is about vanity.

When asking the server how the animal being served was prepared, no one seems to wonder whether that server has basic health insurance or whether that server is affected by the fact that the restaurant industry has one of the highest rates of sexual harassment and lowest rates of pay. When waxing poetic about the “salt of the Earth” farmers from which they buy their unpasteurized milk, no one seems to worry that an estimated 10 percent of American farm workers are children. When pearl-clutching over the things we “don’t know” about GMOs, as Kavin pointed out, no one seems to be concerned about their presence in groceries found at Price Rite––only products sold at Whole Foods.

If you are not as concerned about the people handing you your food in the restaurant as you are about the pigs on the farm where it was grown, your approach is classist….If you start telling someone all about your new trendy diet or asking them about theirs without knowing if they have an eating disorder that may be triggered by your prattle, your approach is ableist. If you tsk-tsk at people who are overweight for what they are eating and claim you’re concerned about their health, yet you’re not actively campaigning to make healthy food more accessible and affordable, your approach is sickening and I don’t want you in my activism.”

During rehearsals, Brad Pitt and Edward Norton found out that they both hated the new Volkswagen Beetle with a passion, and for the scene where Tyler and The Narrator are hitting cars with baseball bats, Pitt and Norton insisted that one of the cars be a Beetle. As Norton explains on the DVD commentary, he hates the car because the Beetle was one of the primary symbols of 60s youth culture and freedom. However, the youth of the 60s had become the corporate bosses of the 90s, and had repackaged the symbol of their own youth, selling it to the youth of another generation as if it didn’t mean anything. Both Norton and Pitt felt that this kind of corporate selling out was exactly what the film was railing against, hence the inclusion of the car; “It’s a perfect example of the Baby Boomer generation marketing its youth culture to us. As if our happiness is going to come by buying the symbol of their youth movement, even with the little flower holder in the plastic molding. It’s appalling to me. I hate it.”

Warning: Spoilers ahead
Of all the 3D movies Walt Disney Animation Studios has made, Wreck-It Ralph is the Magnum Opus, not Tangled or Frozen. Everyone is going on about how Frozen was so feminist because “Anna was saved by her sister  instead of by a man.”, “Anna didn’t need a Prince Charming and didn’t get married like other princesses”, or that “it proves men are evil and manipulative” blah blah blah. I guess everyone forgot how Vanellope doesn’t even have a love interest. She didn’t pursue racing to be a princess, to impress a prince, or for love, she did it because she wanted to accomplish her dreams. She even fends off King Candy, the main antagonist who tries to get her destroyed. I mean, yeah Ralph is the one who truly destroys him, but it’s not common for an animated movie to show a little girl fighting an authority figure on her own. When she finds out she was a princess all along, instead of accepting it, she ditches the frilly dress for her casual clothes because being a princess isn’t who she is, she as herself is who she is and settles for the title of “President”. She’s more empowering than Anna, Elsa, and Rapunzel ever was and WIR was better than Tangled and Frozen.
