So I recently watched Frozen 2, only to realise that Olaf wasn't my favourite male character anymore, it was Kristoff.
Disney has finally come out with a male character who doesn't believe in "protecting " or "saving" a princess ( Anna in this case) but standing by their side at all times.
Kristoff has stolen our heart by shoving toxic masculinity into a deep dark corner, opening up about his emotions, and by letting Ana fight her own battles:
Twitter is very pleased with him slamming toxic masculinity with his not-so chauvinist gestures:
Okay, but can we talk about how Kristoff sang a power ballad about his feelings, told Anna that his love isn’t fragile, AND asked Anna what she needed during battle and didn’t tell her to step aside so he could protect her. I love it all so much❤️🥺 #Frozen2 pic.twitter.com/5zOTCYC4WI— Nora Dominick (@noradominick) November 23, 2019
Kristoff is SINGLE HANDEDLY giving young boys a ROLE MODEL who teaches them it’s ok to FEEL AND EXPRESS EMOTIONS and also LOOK GOOD IN LEATHER. pic.twitter.com/8OkeZY6Dt2— brodyryan+ (@BrodyRyan) November 23, 2019

IMAGINE ALL THE LITTLE BOYS WATCHING THIS.
IMAGINE THIS BEING NORMAL TO THEM.
Imagine not stanning Kristoff after he said “I’m here, what do you need” and “my love is not fragile” 🥺— Kate Klaus 🎅🏼 (@KateElliott41) November 24, 2019
And i also loved that he never "saved" anna, he helped her... that scene where he said "I'm here what do you need?"... the only prince ever 🤧❤— Stefany (@arrivaIgirl) November 24, 2019
They also made Kristoff’s entire storyline about love, something that usually only happens to the female protagonists— Dina is in NYC!!! | hadestown love bot #3 | TMRW! (@averagebwaystan) November 23, 2019
When he asked what she needed ❤️— Nicki Price (@nickiprice27) November 25, 2019
He may have ruined all men for me ❤️— Clydesolvedit (@clydesolvedit) November 24, 2019
kristoff is one of the best disney characters. his best friend is his reindeer, he loves his fiancé in the most honest way, he’s great friends w her sister, he’s never mean, he’s the only guy but he never tries to lead/overshadow elsa or anna and he randomly sings love songs pic.twitter.com/7EtQU8AjHu— mari 23 (@dicksgraysn) November 24, 2019
Kristoff has proved that women and girls of this generation don't need a prince in the shining armour and they can just be as helpful by letting young girls fight their own battles.
Kristoff is the role model this generation needs.
