OMG FUCK YOU YOU STUPID PIECE OF SHIT DISNEY MOVIES WERENT CREATED FOR YOU THEY WERE CREATED FOR KIDS SORRY IF THEY DONT MEET YOUR EXPECTATIONS FUCK YOU
Once upon a time I was babysitting my 12 year-old cousin and I took her to the mall for food and window shopping. This was around the time Enchanted came out so of course the walls were lined with Giselle. Not that I particularly minded, Enchanted was a good film.
So at any rate, I was casually browsing some of the outfits they had out and pick out this pink sparkly dress meant to be Aurora’s. I said, “Hey, Destiny, why don’t you wear this for Halloween?”
I should note I was just joking because this was the age where she was rebelling against dresses but rather than to comment on that she simply replied with, “That isn’t for me.”
I thought she was talking about the fact that I was holding up a dress so I pressed on, “Aw why not? C’mooon! I’m sure it’ll look great on you! Oh we could get you a nice tiara and sparkly heels-“
But she shook her head and went, “That’s only for white girls.”
Of course it was the initial line that took me by surprise, but even moreso was the sheer matter-of-factness that was in her voice. She wasn’t even fazed by it and talked as if was telling me some fact that I must have missed in a memo.
She went on to look at the TV screen but I kept going through the outfits thinking that maybe Jasmine or Pocahontas or Mulan would work, but that wasn’t the problem.
The problem IS that she is the so-called target audience for a store in which she found nothing for her and she accepted it as a fact.
The problem IS that all of this princess stuff isn’t FOR her.
The problem IS that I went through this revelation when I was her age and I thought that it would have ended a long time ago.
The problem IS that they rejoiced in Tiana only to get three more non-POC princesses.
And the problem is that all of this will CONTINUE to be and I just don’t know if I would be able to stand watching my two year-old niece realize this herself.
Because we’re Mexican, we’re mixed, we’re African-American, but most importantly we’re not white.
So you know what? No. Fuck YOU.
Because I WAS a kid. These princess movies WERE created for me, my cousins, my niece, and damn near every other little girl I have know in my lifetime.
And we were NEVER a part of their formula.
We are NEVER going to be a part of their formula.
I’m sick of this shit. I want to see this shit change and I’m not going to sit around waiting for it to change.
I am going to raise hell and I will bust my ass through school and I will get my degree and I will get into the animation industry and I will fight my absolute hardest to help in the change because if there’s one thing I never want to see again is a kid questioning why movies refuse to acknowledge their existence.
So you sit the fuck down and you shut the fuck up and you go through hearing this shit from four different kids and then you see if you can get off your fucking ass and say that shit to me again.
“I wonder if you know yet that you’ll leave me. That you
are a child playing with matches and I have a paper body.
You will meet a girl with a softer voice and stronger arms and she
will not have violent secrets or an affection for red wine or eyes
that never stay dry. You will fall into her bed and I’ll go back
to spending Friday nights with boys who never learn my last name.
I have chased off every fool who has tried to sleep beside me
You think it’s romantic to fuck the girl who writes poems about you.
You think I’ll understand your sadness because I live inside my own.
But I will show up at your door at 2 am, wild-eyed and sleepless.
and try and find some semblance of peace in your breastbone
and you will not let me in. You will tell me to go home.”—(via clementinevonradics)
Hey guys I got a question. I need an honest opinion. Now before I ask for advice I want to be clear, by no means do I not wish people happiness in there life and by no means do I want the people I care about to only pay attention to me. I do have abandonment issues when it comes to friends but I have worked on my neediness throughout the years and I have managed to keep it to a minimal. I have a friend who I have become rapidly close with. We get each other and like the same things. Now this friend has found a recent new love interest, I think that’s great especially since said friend had this last year gone through her fiancée death. I by no means want her to not have this love interest and I am not jealous of her and her loves relationship. However I have been recently getting more and more annoyed because me and the friend have been hanging out less and less. She blew off a really important day that we wee going to spend together that we had had planned for a week in order to hang out with her love interest. She never asks to hang out anymore or asks what we’re going to do together. And the rare moments we do hang out all she talks about is the love interest… That’s it. And ignores what I’m talking about to talk about said interest. Because we work sort of work together and her love interest works with us whenever said love interest shows up she completely blows me off. I have feelings. Like I feel selfish though and I don’t know.. I’m just upset, do I have the right to be upset and any advice on the situation.
When she undresses in front of you, assure her that you love every piece of her more every day;
remind her that ‘every piece’ includes even the parts of her that she cannot seem to swallow.
And when all she can speak are broken down woes of her telling you what you can and cannot love about her. You stand firm and pull her against you reminding her that none of the things she says will make you love ANY of her pieces any less!
