greatest hits

making fun of girls for having “daddy issues” is literally the most illogically cruel thing i can think of haha “hey you! your dad sucked! i bet that really impacted your life and the way you form relationships with other people lmfao fuckin loser" 

please be kind to insects. carry moths outdoors and step over ant hills when possible. help bees out of puddles and pools and direct others to the nearest safe surface when they land on your shoulder. they are just tiny kids trying to navigate a big world.

Once upon a time I was babysitting my 12 year-old cousin and I took her to the mall for food and window shopping. This was around the time Enchanted came out so of course the walls were lined with Giselle. Not that I particularly minded, Enchanted was a good film.

So at any rate, I was casually browsing some of the outfits they had out and pickws out this pink sparkly dress meant to be Aurora’s. I said, “Hey, Destiny, why don’t you wear this for Halloween?”

I should note I was just joking because this was the age where she was rebelling against dresses but rather than to comment on that she simply replied with, “That isn’t for me.”

I thought she was talking about the fact that I was holding up a dress so I pressed on, “Aw why not? C’mooon! I’m sure it’ll look great on you! Oh we could get you a nice tiara and sparkly heels-“

But she shook her head and went, “That’s only for white girls.”

Of course it was the initial line that took me by surprise, but even moreso was the sheer matter-of-factness that was in her voice. She wasn’t even fazed by it and talked as if she was telling me some fact that I must have missed in a memo.

She went on to look at the TV screen but I kept going through the outfits thinking that maybe Jasmine or Pocahontas or Mulan would work, but that wasn’t the problem.

The problem IS that she is the so-called target audience for a store in which she found nothing for her and she accepted it as a fact.

The problem IS that all of this princess stuff isn’t FOR her.

The problem IS that I went through this revelation when I was her age and I thought that it would have ended a long time ago.

The problem IS that they rejoiced in Tiana only to get three more non-POC princesses.

And the problem is that all of this will CONTINUE to be and I just don’t know if I would be able to stand watching my two year-old niece realize this herself.

Because we’re Mexican, we’re mixed, we’re African-American, but most importantly we’re not white.

So you know what? No. Fuck YOU.

Because I WAS a kid. These princess movies WERE created for me, my cousins, my niece, and damn near every other little girl I have known in my lifetime.

And we were NEVER a part of their formula.

We are NEVER going to be a part of their formula.

I’m sick of this shit. I want to see this shit change and I’m not going to sit around waiting for it to change.

I am going to raise hell and I will bust my ass through school and I will get my degree and I will get into the animation industry and I will fight my absolute hardest to help in the change because if there’s one thing I never want to see again is a kid questioning why movies refuse to acknowledge their existence.

So you sit the fuck down and you shut the fuck up and you go through hearing this shit from four different kids and then you see if you can get off your fucking ass and say that shit to me again.

the only “”“casualties of political correctness”“” are privileged people who have to think harder about what they say or do and realise that theyre not as enlightened and open minded and accepting as they would like to tell everyone that they are

like literally everyone else benefits from you changing your actions and even you benefit in the long run from learning not to be a complete piece of shit stop whining omfg
