Sexism in kids’ films: Robots

imagesJust a quick one because I only watched a bit of the film, but fairly early on the parents of the main character (who is, you know, a robot) bring him his “12-year-old parts” which, they say, are a hand-me-down from his cousin Veronica, adding “You know how popular she is!”

It’s a torso and it’s pink and shapely (as you can see from the photo, in the rest of the film his torso is blue) and as the mother hands it over, another robot wolf-whistles.
