I saw some people making edits of Marco with a more feminine appearance which is great, but not the kind of actualization I personally find appealing, so I thought I’d try swapping out the pronouns other characters used for her in their dialogue.
so @teenvogue has an amazing piece from Lauren Duca on “Trump’s systematic attempts to destabilize the truth and weaken the foundation of American freedom”.
this is a great (and actionable) excerpt:
There are things you can and should be doing to turn your unrest into action, but first let’s empower ourselves with information. Insist on fact-checking every Trump statement you read, every headline you share or even relay to a friend over coffee. If you find factual inaccuracies in an article, send an email to the editor, and explain how things should have been clearer. Inform yourself what outlets are trustworthy and which aren’t. If you need extra help, seek out a browser extension that flags misleading sites or print out a list of fake outlets, such as the one by communications professor Melissa Zimdars, and tape it to your laptop. Do a thorough search before believing the agenda Trump distributes on Twitter. Refuse to accept information simply because it is fed to you, and don’t be afraid to ask questions. That is now the base level of what is required of all Americans. If facts become a point of debate, the very definition of freedom will be called into question.
I know this is too personal but are you part of the LGBT community?
I don’t know what I identify as. But, I do know that I’m not straight. I don’t know where I fall on the sexuality spectrum. I think people are too into labels and categorizing people, even within the LGBT+ community. Love is Love. People are People.
