This morning on "Fox & Friends," co-host Steve Doocy wondered whether or not the Disney film "Frozen" and its planned sequel will empower girls by turning men "into fools and villains."

The 2013 film is based on Hans Christian Anderson's fairy tale from 1844, "The Snow Queen."

Penny Nance of the Christian organization Concerned Women For America joined Doocy, noted MediaMatters.org (video below).

"From what we've seen, it looks like they depict men as evil and cold and bumblers," said Doocy. "That's what it looks like, what kind of message does that send?"

According to Talking Points Memo, Nance said that Hollywood has often sent the message that men are "superfluous, that they're stupid, that they're in the way, and if they contribute anything to a family, it's a paycheck."

She claimed that the message of "Frozen" was "We want to empower women, right?"

"And that's good," said Nance. "We absolutely want to do that, but we don't have to empower women at the cost of tearing down men."

"We want to encourage masculinity and not villainize masculinity," added Nance, who also called for "real men" and "strong male figures."

Neither Nance or Doocy mentioned that women have also been depicted in Disney movies as villainous and bumbling in such as characters as Cruella de Vil from "101 Dalmatians," Maleficent from "Sleeping Beauty," the Evil Queen from "Snow White," Madame Medusa from "The Rescuers" and the three stepsisters from "Cinderella."

Additionally, there have been numerous male heroes in Disney films.

Nance also didn't mention how her organization has consistently opposed women's reproductive rights and birth control insurance coverage for women via Obamacare.

A staff member in Rep. Renee Elmers (R-North Carolina) office recently told a constituent that Concerned Women for America objected to a rape exception in a 20-week abortion ban bill that the House was considering, noted RightWingWatch.org.
