Brick-House: FTFA

But they did NOT fall in love. They never even dated. They never even held hands. There was no romantic relationship whatsoever between the two of them. There is no historical evidence from anyone, Native-American, White-Man, or otherwise, to even suggest this possibility. How can we be so certain that they didn't sneak off and have some secret romance? The girl was ELEVEN years old in real life, for Christ's sake. John Smith went back to England to write about his little summer in America, and he didn't even mention the girl.

OK, if you just farked an 11 year old girl while spending your summer abroad, would you write about it?

Mohammed did.

/Aisha was 9 when the marriage was consummated.

Good thing we aren't talking about Pocahontas II. That one was even worse.

fozziewazzi: Forget the historical inaccuracy. This movie carries on the Hollywood tradition that the story must be about a foreign woman who falls for the white American male. Would the movie have worked with a white woman falling for an Indian man?

John Smith was English. There was no America for another 160 years.

It's all about Post-hair slice Rapunzel from Tangled.

You know what else? Lead animator for Pocahontas was Glen Keane, better known as Billy from Family Circus.

I guess the next blog post will be about the blatant racism in Peter Pan. I mean, they say "Injuns!" I'm outraged, and I demand that Disney fix it before people see it.

It's not like this wasn't thoroughly covered when the movie was released in 1995.

Not news indeed. Am I the only person who learned all this in an American history class by the time I was 12 or so?
