Is 'Toy Story 3' Sexist?

Is the #1 box-office hit damaging to girls? One Ms. Magazine blogger thinks so.

Toy Story 3

Natalie Wilson over at the Ms. Magazine blog wrote a post called "Third Time Still Not the Charm for Toy Story's Female Characters."

She says that male characters dominate "Toy Story 3," and that out of seven new toy characters, only one is female. She also says that Barbie is an "overly emotional, often crying girlie-girl," and Andy's mom is portrayed as a nag.

Wilson was also less than pleased when the Mrs. Potato Head character was told that "she needs her mouth taken off."

Wilson says that, all in all, "Toy Story 3" is "yet another family movie that perpetuates damaging gender and sexuality norms."

What do you think? Is "Toy Story 3" sexist -- or does Wilson just need to lighten up?
