I’m proud to admit that Disney has helped spark my interest in history. Especially films like Mulan, Pocahontas, and the Hunchback of Notre Dame.

There’s a line in Mulan’s “Reflection” that stands out to me the most, “If I were truly to be myself, I’d break my family’s heart.” I came out as genderfluid in February of 2016 and my dad took it the hardest. I think in that respect, I did break his heart that his supposed “little girl” wasn’t his little girl anymore.

I feel like this year has been the year of Disney for me: earlier this year, I watched a lot of those 90’s Disney singalong videos since they were in the “recommended video” section on Youtube, I watched these “Disney instructional videos” and Donald Duck’s “Happy Birthday” parade this summer and I’m going to Disneyland this October. I also sang “Reflection” from “Mulan” and “Let It Go” on my demo CD I recorded and “Alice in Wonderland” was somewhat of a triggering movie for me this year.

See to it that this woman is made a member of my council.

If Mulan were a transman like everyone insists, she would have stayed Ping. She actually didn’t even really embrace the idea of being Ping. Not to mention that “look what I managed to do despite being a (cis) woman and everyone knowing it” ending. Sorry, I’m tired of being told I’m supposed to love and worship Mulan, and that as a transman she’s my “representation”.

Mulan came out on the year I was born. I was raised in a military family(Father was in the military) and Mulan was my first ever film I watched. The relationship Mulan has with her father reminds me of myself and my dad, even to this day. I would do the same thing Mulan did if my dad wasn’t ready for impending war. I look up to the film so much and it taught me to be brave.

I am really concerned with all the changes that have been made with the upcoming Mulan film. It doesn’t feel like it’s Disney’s Mulan at all; that film helped shape me in so many ways. I was able to relate to Mulan, Shang. It helped me discover my love for history, the country of Mongolia, Ghengis Khan who was a huge inspiration for Shan Yu. He is my favorite villain of all the disney films. I am saddened with the fact he’s been renamed, replaced along with Shang. It’s not Disney’s Mulan.

I have clinical depression and Disney used to help me cope with it, but now, even if I watch my favorites like Mulan, Tangled, Beauty & The Beast, and Coco, they no longer really help. Which sucks since Disney used to help a lot and now I feel like I have nothing to really live for or feel joy from

I was 5 when I saw Mulan in theaters. Afterwards I said that I wanted to learn how to fight like her, so my mom signed me up for tae-kwan-do (even though it’s not the same martial arts) I felt like I was living out the I’ll Make a Man Out of You scene during practice. Even though it lasted 2.5 years and I got quite a few trophies and medals, I still tell people that Mulan was the only reason I did it all in the first place.

I’ll admit: I’ve based my last 3 trips from Disney and Pixar movies I’m infatuated with. Paris for Ratatouille, Beijing for Mulan, and Japan/ San Francisco for Big Hero 6. It helps me connect to my favorite movies and characters. I’m hoping to go to Alaska (Brother Bear) soon.
