  • tumblr: We want more movies with minority representation.
  • tumblr: I mean, to help that get here we could go watch movies with it, like 12 Years a Slave or Beasts of the Southern Wild.
  • tumblr: But nah, we'd rather see Frozen and The Avengers again for the 30th time.
  • tumblr: We also want more LGBTrepresentation.
  • tumblr: But we won't actually go see movies or tv shows with LGBT characters.
  • tumblr: It's easier to just watch shows with straight characters and assume they're gay.

“When it all goes quiet behind my eyes, I see everything that made me lying around in invisible pieces. When I look too hard, it goes away. And when it all goes quiet, I see they are right here. I see that I’m a little piece in a big, big universe. And that makes things right. When I die, the scientists of the future, they’re gonna find it all. They gonna know, once there was a Hushpuppy, and she live with her daddy in the Bathtub. “ 

“Quando tudo fica quieto atrás dos meus olhos, vejo cada coisa que me fez voar por lugares invisíveis. Se me esforçço em distingui-los, desaparecem. Mas quando tudo se aquieta, vejo que estão aqui. Vejo que sou uma pequena peça em um grande, grande universo.  Então sinto que assim deve ser. Quando eu morrer, os cientistas do futuro irão achar isso tudo. Eles irão saber, um dia existia uma Hushpuppy, e ela viveu com o seu pai na Banheira.”
