How was the Series of Unfortunate Events movie literally the best thing ever and the worst thing ever at the same time
Like how could they nail the casting, atmosphere, music, narration and basically everything aesthetic so perfectly while completely disregarding the actual story that they were adapting beyond the point where it can even be enjoyable
It’s really important for older desi girls to support young and naive desi girls, even the girls with hairy arms and upper lips, the ones with unkempt monobrows and visible happy trails, girls who get nervous talking to strangers, the ones who aren’t fashion savvy in an eastern or western sense, girls who wear clothes too big or too small, girls who aren’t good at STEM fields, girls who can’t dance bhangra or garba, whose makeup is all wrong, who use Fair & Lovely because they’ve internalized a lot of shit, girls who use haldi and chandan for the same reason, girls who eat rice with their hands, girl who don’t do extracurriculars, girls with thick accents, ALL OF THEM.
Ultimately, it doesn’t matter whether the things they’re doing are for political statements, or because their families are restrictive, or because they want to. We have to support our younger desi sisters even when they’re not conforming to the “tumblr aesthetic” or when they’re not socially conscious. We are the ones who have to teach them.
I know there’s a lot of pressure on us to have the ultimate “cool” squad of desi girls so non-desi folks can’t say shit about us and at least we fit in somewhere. But more often then not, this leaves young and vulnerable girls who feel/look unattractive or awkward too intimidated to approach us and they get left out.
So support young desi girls. Give them a positive role model who understands them. It’s a scary and isolating world. Be there for them.
I just love the NaruHina fans who say Sakura was a bad and annoying person for always going after Sasuke. Meanwhile, NaruHina is based on Hinata borderline stalking Naruto until she finally catches a break thanks to a fucking genjutsu.
Oh, but of course they don’t pay attention to her wrongs. Hinata-hime is never wrong~
