“I really hate seeing
sexualized art of Pocahontas. Not only was she a real person but the character
was already sexualized enough in the movie. They took a thirteen-year-old and
aged her up so she could be romanced by a white dude. It’s so uncomfortable.“
I live very close to Jamestown and my father is an engineer. He calculated the distance of the waterfall Pocahontas jumps off of in the beginning of the movie to be over a thousand feet. Eastern VA is a very flat place, there aren’t any real waterfalls here. So every time we’re anywhere near the James River he reminds me several times there are no Pocahontas waterfalls for me to play on. It was fun at first, but now it’s annoying. It makes me not want to go to Jamestown with him.
It really annoys me that the only time I find Pocahontas merchandise, she’s never alone. She’s always with the white princesses
