    Default pocahontas; ruining your childhood

    Get ready to have Pocahontas ruined for you:

    1. Pocahontas was only twelve when john smith left
    2. Pocahontas married a John Rolfe
    3. Pocahontas did not save Smith, smith wasnt being executed, he was being adopted, the ceremony involved literally beating the european out of him and she was the simbolic welcoming to his new home.
    4. Pocahontas's name was not Pocahontas. Pocahontas was a nickname that meant, to put it real gently: one with many male friends

    Had it served to me during my American History lectures. I don't get what's so special about it. I still love the movie. Especially the music. Ah... The music...

    For the record, John Rolfe appeared in the sequel (which was otherwise sucky).

    what?


    anyways, HC, you're at least a decade late on the ruining my childhood wrt Pocahontas. Next you'll try to tell me that the dog fur trade is alive and well in China and other underdeveloped nations, and that in the first world, many Dalmatian puppies went neglected because children wanted to have a spotty dog like in the cartoon, but were unwilling to care for them, not to mention all the genetic defects in the breed that went unmentioned in the movie.

    Also, The Little Mermaid throws herself into the sea while still in human form, disintegrates and dies, and has to remain in limbo for 200 years before she's allowed into heaven.

    Don't forget Atlantis the Lost Empire and Nadia Nadia vs. Atlantis? - Anime News Network

    Although in fairness I don't care what anyone says, Atlantis is one of my favorite movies EVER
