like arianna volchitza who made this great post i’ve read the fab post by mythaelogy and i have nothing to add to it that hasn’t been said regarding the “dangerous teenage girls” trope. i do want to add my apologies for everything i’ve made or reblogged that has played into the problems these lovely ladies have highlighted (primarily my black sisters graphic i think).
what i would say is that the trope is still fascinating to me, but the idea at its core rather than this nebulous thing it’s become where you can slap some bubblegum and disembodied lips/thighs on a graphic and say it’s part of it. i’ve played into that, i hold myself accountable, i’m very sorry.
anyway i just wanted to write out basically how i interpret this trope and therefore the kind of things you can expect me to create and/or reblog onto this blog.
