    There's Been A Sex Lyric In "Mulan" This Whole Time. THIS WHOLE TIME!!!!


    So there I was, listening to Disney songs at work.



    "A Girl Worth Fighting For," the questionably sexist and fourth-most popular song from Mulan started, and I bopped along.


    It's certainly not the worst song in the movie, but it definitely doesn't come close to, “I’ll Make a Man Out of You,” “Reflection,” or even “Honor To Us All."

    So Ling, Yao, and Chien-Po, are describing their ideal woman.


    They want their women "...paler than the moon" to "...marvel at my strength" and want her to "cook beef, pork, chicken, mmm." Yadda yadda yadda. Then they go on to talk about how women "love men in armor." Sure, fine, whatever.

    BUT THEN, at approximately 01:17 into the song, the chorus of general army men sing in unison, "You can guess what we have missed most since going off to war."


    SEX!!!! THEY MISS SEX!!! AAAHHHH!! How have I missed this lyric my entire life??? My innocent little child brain didn't even register this!!

    I played it over again to make sure I was hearing it right and I WAS.


    The men start singing the alleged sex lyric as soon as they see…WOMEN. So…

    Idk, maybe they miss flirting. Or holding hands.

    But I'm betting they miss the sexy sex.

    ANYWAYS, the more you know.
