I just did it with my 5yo dd. I have been concerned that since we moved in with my mom she's been watching way too much Disney, but her gender ideas are very equal and still intact. So that's nice to know.
But some of the questions made me realize she's not watching near as much as some children and I try to always talk to her about what she watches and keep it to certain movies.
Funnily enough I have made near heroic efforts over the years to avoid exposing my kids to anything Disney, and then darned if their cousins haven't ended up being Disney princesses. As In, working professionally as Disney princess characters at resorts, on tours and aboard cruise ships. My SIL is so proud of them, and then lately we are spammed nearly every day with photos of the cousins coiffed in the full princess regalia. You can choose your kids' toys and videos, but you can't choose your family ...

hmmmm as well as the tv aspect there are a lot of leading questions on there about gender attitudes. Its pretty easy to spot what one "ought" to reply.
Also, as a niggle, I don't see why you need my child's first name, gender, AND age. Surely age and gender would be enough.
I couldn't really answer it, tbh, the only Disney my kids have ever seen is Fantasia. Sorry.
ETA Oh and, my god, seriously, there is a DISNEY channel? Seriously?
LOL at Miranda...yeah that's how my kid was introduced to Disney too, family. Unfortunately it happened way earlier than I hoped, but oh well. I can't change that.
Fillyjonk..there has been a Disney channel since I was a kid and I actually watched it! Now there's actually several Disney channels. The Disney shows are like a million times worse than Disney movies.
I actually also found some of the questions inappropriate to my situation but just tried to answer to the best of my ability. As for the questions being "loaded" for an adult to answer definitely. That's why I asked my daughter to do it with me, mostly cause I was curious as to how she would react to the questions because we don't talk about things like that and she is not at all expectant that there is one way to answer the questions, so I didn't ask her the questions exactly how they were asked on the survey, but in a way she could understand them better. I'm curious as to how the study turns out, but I also want to maybe go look at who is sponsoring it and what they hope to find. I'd be happy to see them do a study about rather Disney TV shows make children yell for no reason and think their parents are idiots.
