I initially reblogged these without commentary because I liked the art, but something made me uncomfortable about them, especially the Ursula one. After discussing with Rooyena, they helped pinpoint what it was - the inherent misogyny and homophobia in such a depiction. Misogynistic because Ursula is /supposed/ to be a fat, voluptuous, highly sexual-in-the-feminine-sense character, and genderswapping her to be a thin, muscular man destroys those attributes. She’s all about how curvaciousness can be sexy and how that sexiness is threatening to the virginal Ariel and the chaste Triton. Saying that she’s somehow more appealing as a thin man is fucked up. And the homophobia is apparent in the idea that a feminine man cannot be attractive or feminine unless he’s conventionally attractive (read: slim and/or muscular). Could a fat man not be depicted as being attractive? Why not? That shit is fucked up.
