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.
Okay so has anyone seen these beautiful portrayals of disney princesses if they were real? Ariel is my favorite :’)
The artist is Jirka Väätäinen and like these are amazing I have been waiting for this my whole life
Aurora is my fave :’)
First things first. If you don’t like something that is being written as an important part of a show, don’t watch it. Stop complaining about it, and just move on, because your opinion is never going to change what the writers plan on writing.
Secondly, if you think that Captain Swan is an unhealthy relationship, you’re watching a different show.
Now keep in mind that I am a strong believer in shipping whoever you want and having your own opinions. Everyone is different and that is a good thing. But never ever EVER force your opinions on those who oppose it. I’m not telling anyone who they can or cannot ship. All I want is for people to get their facts, which are absolutely confirmed by the creators and actors, straight.
Killian Jones has NEVER forced himself on ANYONE, least of all Emma. Yes, he invades peoples personal space, both men and woman, but if someone tells him to back off, he does without question. He has never inappropriately touched or sexually harassed anyone. Not one person. Not ever.
Killian is an interesting character. He has a bad past, loads of baggage, he makes inappropriate jokes, and he often makes bad choices. But that doesn’t make him a bad person. As we are continuously reminded during the show, he has a code. He believes in good form. He doesn’t harass or abuse women, he is extremely loyal, he is caring and supportive, and if you don’t like him, then I feel sorry for you. But that is your choice and your loss. I have had it with people hating on him based on his past with Rumplestiltskin, combined with traditional antagonist pirate behaviour. There is such thing as character development, and Killian and Emma have one of the best.
Emma is a ‘strong, independent woman who don’t need no man’ as they say, but having a man is still nice and it sure as hell doesn’t make their relationship unnecessary. What Emma needs is someone who wont leave her. She was abandoned as a baby, sent back from foster homes, sent to jail for a crime she didn’t commit just when things were looking up for her, and she had to give up her baby. Everyone who she has ever loved has left her in one way or another. But not Killian. He came back for her every single time. He has supported her, believed in her and been patient with her since the very beginning. He is the first person to truly understand her walls and hasn’t tried to knock them down in one go. He has waited for her to be ready. Every kiss so far (except for the failed TLK in 3x11) has been initiated by her. If you look closely as the most recent one in 4x01, he didn’t even react until he was absolutely sure she wouldn’t pull away. He is letting her control the speed of their relationship and is not forcing her into anything she doesn’t want to do.
Emma has never denied him. She has never said no to his advances, only ever not now. The only time she has ever said no to him was, again, in New York when she didn’t know who the hell he was. And that is completely understandable. No one can honestly say they wouldn’t do what Emma did if a stranger turned up at their door and kissed them.
Now this is the most laughable line in the whole post. “Claiming you have “LGBT representation” on your show while not truly acknowledging the character’s sexuality, and then writing it off?" I’m sorry, but are you really saying that the writers who created the character of Emma Swan don’t know her true sexuality? Are you actually kidding me right now? She is Adam and Eddy’s creation. They know everything about her, even things that we don’t know. They know every detail about her because she is their masterpiece and you actually say that they don’t acknowledge her sexuality? You can’t write off something that never existed in the first place. Also, when A&E claim they have LGBT representation on their show, they don’t necessarily mean the main character. You want a canon LGBT character, try Mulan. Sleeping Warrior, though disappointing that it never went anywhere, is the only somewhat canon LGBT ship on the show. And yes, even I would like to see more LGBT characters on the show, but leave the canonically straight characters out of it.
The post also mentions a love triangle, then sarcastically makes a comment about how A&E are genius’ because that’s never been done before. You know what? A&E are genius’, and that has nothing to do with love triangles. They draw people in, and this particular one was necessary for Emma to let go of her past and move on to her future. Love triangles are common, and if you complained every time a show had one, you would have even less of a life.
I’m sorry if this offends anyone, but these are my honest thoughts and I really had to get this off my chest.
This was the single funniest thing I have ever seen a president do.
I’M STILL LAUGHING.
I will never not reblog this.
Let’s all take a moment to remember that Obama actually fucking did this omg
i can’t decide if this bus is being supportive or threatening me
I am seriously considering creating a Twitter account, just so I could send JMo some love after all these inconsiderate people burden her with hate and insensitive comments.
there’s only one rule; pick a partner who knows what he’s doing
