I actually did laugh when I saw this in theaters because this is a very real guilt tactic parents use and it’s 100% effective.

It’s called gaslighting

This movie really did a stellar job of looking at abusive parent relationships, despite its other issues.

(Also, I will always get teary during that damn lantern scene. So pretty.)

Please do not talk about any abusive parent narrative in Tangled without addressing the racism involved.

Important. I’ve also seen a lot of commentary by various jewish people on Tumblr that Gothel’s character design draws heavily on jewish stereotypes. So anti-Semitism as well. 

So….yeah. The abuse is well portrayed. But Gothel herself is actually  very problematic character.

the design draws on jewish stereotypes?

I am not doubting anyone, I just never picked up on it.

I would really appreciate if anyone could even just offer a cliffs notes version explaining? I would like to be more conscious of this in the future. 

This is one of many posts I’ve seen that touch on this issue.
