This is so Sue. Sue Storm is like, the #1 greatest mother in the Marvel universe. So of course this is how she reacts when Jessica Jones comes to her with a baby emergency.

wait honestly why isn’t Parks and Rec more recognized for what it’s doing? it has a really diverse cast and I don’t remember them ever mocking/stereotyping? Leslie is like hardcore feminist and generally amazing and such a great example for young girls and people in general? April demonstrates that you don’t need to fit into society’s standards? Donna is a fucking strong, independent, and successful black woman?

there’s just so much about that show that’s so unappreciated in terms of the progress it’s making for change in society.

I thought I understood it, that I could grasp it, but I didn’t, not really. Only the smudgeness of it; the pink-slippered, all-containered, semi-precious eagerness of it. I didn’t realize it would sometimes be more than whole, that the wholeness was a rather luxurious idea. Because it’s the halves that halve you in half. I didn’t know, don’t know, about the in-between bits; the gory bits of you, and the gory bits of me.
