10 (anti) parallels Emma with the hook / others with the hook
Requested by my dear friend @cat-sophia and also by anonymous. Dedicated to them and to all my followers for my 3 years blog anniversary.
This show that we all love is treating many issues, but I feel like this was the most important one. Not because A&E knew how to approach it all the time (I’m sure they never saw nothing wrong with any of Regina’s comments), but creating this character to begin with was a huge campaign for accepting people with disabilities.
But in addition, I think this thing can also be related not only to disabled, but also to all of us as human beings. Because everyone of us has a weakness (or several), everyone of us feels like people are judging him because of something they see on the outside. Some people feel like the first thing people see is how fat they are, others feel like they are only seen as a pretty face. Others (like myself) feel like the first thing people notice is how short they are, others how they are too tall.
What Emma is doing here is not just being tolerant and respectful to Hook’s disability. She doesn’t see it at all. All she sees is him, the man she loves. He just happens to have a hook for a hand, and she finds it extremely sexy. I think the moment I loved most on the show in regards to this issue was on 4x04. Not only because Emma didn’t notice or cared if he had the hook or the hand, but because it was the first time that we really saw how it bothered Hook himself. It was amazing to see how in the same episode that he felt so unworthy and disable because of it (actually thinking Emma wouldn’t enjoy being intimate with him with the hook) was the episode that proven how unjustified his feelings were.
So no matter what is your own thing that makes you feel unworthy or less than others, remember that this thing is also what makes you yourself, and it is part of what makes other people love you so dearly.
