Best lesson from a Disney movie
This is an underrated movie
This is a grossly underrated movie.
Can I take a minute to rant? Good. Cuz I’m gonna.
I FLOVE this movie. And I HATE all the stupid hatred it gets. For a long time the buzz was “finally a black princess yay!” and now everyone is like “Fuck this movie, first black princess and she spends the whole movie a frog.”
You know what? Fuck that. Because Ariel spent a good majority of the movie not talking. Mulan spent the majority of the move pretending to be a man. Aurora and Snow White? Asleep (Hardly in the movie at all). They’re all just plot devices, not designed to take away from the traits of the women.
And you know what else? Unlike some of the other princesses, Tiana is in control of her destiny every step of the way. When she turns into the frog does she lose hope and need rescuing? Hell naw. She busts Naveen over the head and gets the job done. She is consistently responsible and capable even after having her dreams crushed and turning into a freaking frog.
So don’t tell me that Tiana is “less than” just because she gets turned into a frog. She’s still one of the most hardworking, badass, and capable chicks in animated history and I love her like crazy cakes.
Also? She’s based on a real person. A real woman who is 91 and is still cooking in her kitchen. She’s still widely respected in the culinary community, she’s fed presidents, she’s had songs written about her and her restaurants. She’s 91, and she still wakes up every morning to run things, because she still believes in hard work and good food. And if you don’t think that’s truly fantastic, then you can just fuck right off.
Ahhh well clothing from and for rp for bakura!
The thing is he’s too lazy to dress up like this,its so much fucking effort. He rather just wear the same plain shirt and jeans to be ready to head right out the door whenever he needs to. Rather than waste precious time and energy finding something well put together.So Mariku is really(always) surprised when Bakura meets up with him, hair actually not looking like he just got out of bed for a change.
Bakura just wants to lay around naked with his idiot.Who needs clothes.
( also that colorful outfit me and linn can’t seem to get enough of for some reason haha)
when an entire fandom mischaracterizes a character and everyone goes along with it
Nobody should hate white racists (or black, asian, or latino ones, for that matter) for being having their skin color or being their race. Nobody chooses skin color, or the circumstances of their birth.
Hate the crime, most definitely, but speaking as a white male who will soon be living on my own, the race issue is becoming so divisive that I am afraid to say ANYTHING AT ALL to people who aren’t white for fear of being labeled racist, and that’s not how you fix something like racism. Fear can never ever solve fear. Fear can never solve hatred or anger.
It can only ever make things worse.
As a child, I went to school with black kids, and all I saw were kids like me. I never once pondered or cared that they looked differently from me.
Now I look around, and I am afraid. Afraid because I am a white person, and someone will accuse me of racism because of something I said or did innocently— I am also autistic and don’t have the best social skills, so my fears are magnified even further.
I have nothing. No money, no job, no home but with my parents, and not for lack or trying.
But I’m told to “check my privilege”.
Because I have SO MUCH. I am barely scraping by, surviving on my family’s generosity, and we aren’t rich. But dammit, that white privilege! I seem to have it in spades, what do I know?!
I’m afraid of people now more than I ever have been. I’ve withdrawn into my home like a witch being hunted, hoping it will all blow over if I just stay out of the light.
I’m angry, I’m scared, and I’m white.
I just want people to get along. I want harmony, and all this anger and fear I see and feel won’t fix anything or help anybody.
Why the hell can’t people forget all about skin color or race and see our fellow man like a child?
"Hi, I’m Drew!"
“Why’s your skin brown, Shelley?”
“I was born like that.”
“Wow! That’s neat! Care to trade my Pringles for your granola bar?”
We might solve a lot of problems by emulating our children in this way.
Guys, gals, I am tired of being scared. Why isn’t the world tired of being angry?
It should be. We all should be.
As a white person, the label of racist won’t do anything to you, and if you are called racist, you should perhaps reevaluate yourself. You have nothing to fear. It’s unwarranted. Racism is not based on your intent, it’s not, it’s based on your actions and it’s based on your words, you can have the best intentions in the world but it can still be wrong and it can still be hurtful, or even deadly.
You say that you don’t have white privilege but if you take a Black family and put them in the same social-economical status and a range of disabilities, they have it harder because they also have to deal with racism on top of everything else. White privilege doesn’t mean your life is perfect.
Based on what I’ve read, you appear to have a victim complex, over something you don’t even face, racism, it doesn’t make any sense to me.
