Wow, so many commenters are upset that I described Cutlass Liz’s breasts as “beach ball” when clearly, her breasts are not large enough to beach balls. I was referring not to size but shape; they are ball-like. Perhaps baseballs would’ve been a better simile. Of course, my point here guys, is that in “Pirates!” one of the very few female characters in the movie is sexualized and that sucks for kids, especially girls, who go to see this movie.
Secondly, people keep writing that there are no female pirates in real life. I have answered this so many times before but here I go again: Who gives a shit? In the animated world, toys come to life, rats cook, and lions befriend warthogs. Why when it comes to gender roles do people suddenly become so dedicated to depicting a sexist “reality?”
Update: People are already sending me lists of female pirates in real life. Thank you! I think the commenters would still say the majority of pirates are male, therefore the majority of male pirates in the movie is accurate. To which I still say, who cares? Be creative, people! Isn’t that what you get paid for?
