...you realize just how sexist a beloved childhood show is. B's new favorite movie is The Smurfs 2 and Smurfette's backstory completely stunned me. I looked it up, and it was originally even worse. Yikes!

I guess my sis and I both loved the show growing up and my mom dressed us as Smurfette a few times for Halloween and we grew up to be ardent feminists but there's still something jarring about it.

It was like watching a lot of old Mickey Mouse cartoons and finding just how annoying, useless and damsel-ish Minnie Mouse is.
