If you use the "they're not like real cats" argument, then you can drop the complaints about genetically impossible pelt colours

uh hi there is a big difference in excusing pedophilia in a children’s book vs making them genetically accurate just for fun 

ben cook story time

so this is a story Ben’s dad told me one day and I think it deserves to be shared with the world.

while Ben was working in billy elliot on Broadway, he and his dad would regularly see shows together. one day they were hoping to see the revival of John Guare’s dark comedy, House of Blue Leaves. a show that deals with a lot of mature matters.

Ben walks up to the ticket office, asks if they have a student discount, and proceeds to show the ticket manager his sixth grade PPAS ID. after he asked for two tickets, the manager leans out of the window and says, “this show is for mature audiences, you are too young to see the show.”

Ben, without batting an eye, replies with, “but I say fuck onstage every night.”

the ticket manager responded with “oh, you must me in billy elliot.” then handed them their tickets and they went on their way.
