  • me: (admitting my flaws) im selfish bc i need constant attention ://
  • friend: me too!! im selfish also!! dont worry its okay!!
  • friend 2: yeah me too!! were all selfish
  • me: haha youre right!!
  • me: (on the inside) no you dont understand what i mean is that my fp needs to constantly give me attention or ill think that she doesn't care about me and i will slowly start to hate whoever has their attention with a burning passion and i have an intense urge to jump off the nearest bridge.
  • me: haha i guess everybody likes attention!!

I was happily scrolling through Twitter when I found this post and I’m sorry for making this rant here, but I want to say something about it. I think the source is detconanconfessions (warning: long and bad post)

I know this is hard, but we shouldn’t compare female characters (like Ai and Ran), I even do that sometimes, but I’ve learn a lot about that these past months. They are completely different human beings and both great female characters. Not everything about them has to be romantic or related to “a man” They are both strong in different ways.

The post says “She’s a character who can stand by herself” yet Haibara is alive thanks to Agasa, who saved her life and gave her a home and a family, because she lost everything. He was the one who got Conan and her to work together. How would her life have been without them? And both of them (Agasa and Conan) have shown her what a family is, how not all humans are evil, even the detective boys have shown her values as friendship and love, she even learned lessons about friendship thanks to Ran and Sonoko’s friendship. How many times has Conan saved Haibara’s life? And Ran? Even Genta and Mitsuhiko have saved her.

Don’t forget she tried to commit suicide a couple of times, please. Yes, she’s strong, but she can’t stand by herself and that’s the amazing thing about her character development, because she grow up in a jail, she’s learning now and she can’t do that by herself.

The post also says: “She didn’t need man to resolve her life…” that’s really great, every woman should be able to resolve her life without a man…
“…wich other characters desperately need to” annnnd I feel that comment goes to Ran and Sonoko, ok.

Let’s begin with Sonoko. Funny how when a man in any other show (you could even add Kaitou Kid here) flirts a lot the comments are “he’s a dork lol” “I love him” “all the girls love him” but when Sonoko does that: “She’s so desperate ugh” “attention seeker” “whore”. To be honest, Sonoko owns the best female character development in the series with Miwako Satou, it’s so sad how so many people missed that. People is amazing and that’s all I’m going to say.

And about Ran. I don’t even know where to begin. Ran is probably the most sane person in the whole show, she dealed with a mother who abandoned her when she was a kid and a father who drinks a lot, you can even find headcanons about her childhood like is one, and yet she’s the kindest person. She has a best friend, they grow up together, then she realized she was in love with him and a couple of months later he dissapeared.

That’s hard, believe me, losing people you love is hard because if they left without a word all you can think is “It’s my fault everybody abandon me” I know, she loves him and she cries because she misses him, but yet she has a life, she still train her karate, she still goes out with Sonoko (could you imagine if Sonoko abandon her now?) When was the last time she cried because of him? London? yet on episodes 648-50 she was the one who saved the criminal’s life and told Sera she believed in Shinichi and he would rescue all of them, did she cried then? did she cried in the aquarium memories?

Look how they are totally different characters yet similar. People have the vision Haibara is stronger than Ran, yet Ran has saved a lot of people’s lifes including Conan’s. People thinks only Ran suffers, but both of them feel weak about anything related to their families. Actually, both of them were abandoned by their moms (Elena left her before she died). At least in my opinion neither of them need a man to solve their lives, they need people to help them to live and make them happy, and falling in love doesn’t make any person less important.

Im sorry, I have to get back to work, thanks for reading

To all the sick anons who are messaging the user dumbscar with hate: 

DO YOU REALIZE SHE’S A 13 YEAR OLD LITTLE GIRL?! SHE JUST TRIED TO GO AND KILL HERSELF AND YOU SICKOS ARE TELLING HER TO POST UP PICTURES OF HERSELF IN THE HOSPITAL. 

Who the FUCK do you think you are? This is little girl you guys are calling a cunt and an attention whore. You WOULDN’T LIKE IT if you attempted this and YOU got the hate she’s getting right now.

She doesn’t deserve it and for the rude people sending her hate, WHY THE FUCK DON’T YOU GO AND GET OFF ANON AND STOP BEING A LITTLE BITCH AND SAY IT TO HER WITH YOUR TUMBLR USERNAME. YOU’RE BEING ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS BY EVEN GOING AND DOING THIS TO HER. SHE’S A LITTLE KID YOU SICKOS.

Side note to Kylie: IGNORE the people who are sending you hate-mail. You are a wonderful kid and don’t let A N Y O N E try and tell you all these nasty things because I hope they realize you could have been someone’s little sister to be sending this hate to. 

I don’t even know her but for you to go and do this, you need to go into a mental hospital. She’s a little fucking kid I hope your proud of yourself but don’t worry because what goes around comes back around. 

I am so tired of this,

Everyone is making such a big fuss over Elsa being a white princess. Her story takes place in Norway. It is a kids movie, Disney ISN’T racist because if they were, I DOUBT we’d have Mulan, Pocahontas, Tiana OR ANY OTHER FOREIGN PRINCESS BESIDES SNOW WHITE, SLEEPING BEAUTY, and CINDERELLA WHO ARE WHITE. They talk about equality but, WHY, why does EVERYONE have to overcomplicate a child's movie. Yes, they may have messed up on the history, but everyone is making it seem as if Disney is “white washing” their princesses. I don’t even care if I get hate mail. It’s just frustrating that this is happening. Disney isn’t racist, Disney just tries to make it accurate with what they can work with. and seeing people make such a fuss and bashing those ideas that Disney isn’t racist is literally hurting my brain. 
Do you see this? There are most diverse disney movies with different characters who aren’t all entirely white on the outside. Just, please. Stop.
