Did we miss something on diversity?

I'm done with common sense media

This movie is great. Not too scary, fun magic, not the greatest animation but still good enough. The review talking about stereotypes and stuff about the female lead- you are ridiculous. This is a time of over-sensitivity to everything. Does the female lead get kidnapped? Yes. Is this a symbol of the patriarchy? No. So this movie would be fine if that male main character was kidnapped? The female lead is not absent to her own rescue- in fact she is pretty resourceful against a powerful evil wizard. SPOILER- The male lead is chivalrous- he puts her needs and happiness before his own to the point that he dies for her freedom! This should be celebrated that someone was willing to free some one else at the cost of their own life! (he ends up ok- why this is fine for young and sensitive viewers). And he knew he would die and did it anyway. If it was reversed and the male was saved by the female it would be celebrated, but it is wrong because the male sacrifices for the female? Why can't both be amazing examples of selflessness? As the mom of 2 boys I HATE the man-bashing and calling into "stereotypes" if a man is portrayed in any aspect of strength. Why shouldn't we want our boys to grow into strong men? We want our girls to grow into strong women. I have seen this too much in the way Common Sense Media is heading. Truthfully this is the last straw. Good bye- thank you for the good years when you would rate things on actual family values.
