I really wish I’d stop hearing things like ‘You’re like an old married couple’ when 2 people are arguing. Things like ‘you better marry a rich man’ , ‘you need to learn to cook cause he wont’ , ‘enjoy your freedom before marriage’ , ‘better buy your wife roses after that’.
Stop. Romanticizing failing marriages. Like just stop. This behavior isn’t cute. It isn’t good. It isn’t healthy. It’s things nobody wants. Besides the blatant sexism here that I hear ALL THE TIME at work and at home, this is literally the kind of marriage nobody wants, but the kind everybody normalizes.
I dunno. It bugs me so much. Marriage should be a partnership, not, 2 people living in 2 different worlds, getting irritated every time they come in contact with each other, and rarely speaking about anything that’s wrong because what’s wrong is ‘normal’.
ITS NOT DONE

I’ll get the colors i need to finish it tommorrow afternoon and then I’ll post the finished thing
I have this strange feeling that I’m not myself anymore. It’s hard to put into words, but I guess it’s like I was fast asleep, and someone came, disassembled me, and hurriedly put me back together again. That sort of feeling.
I want to see more big girls as the stars of mainstream films, and owning every single person in the movie with their “I don’t give a damn about what you think, I’m beautiful and I know it” attitude. More shows with leads that are transgender women showing us how incredible they are in what they endure from society and conduct themselves with such admirable pride and strength. More women of colour centric tv shows highlighting all the struggles they must survive growing up. More autistic girls being protagonists of movies and showing people that autism can also mean kindness, intelligence and beauty if you take the time to understand that it’s a different system. I want more differently abled girls becoming superstars in tv shows with their positive attitudes to life, their incredible spirit and their immense compassion. I want mainstream films and tv shows to start making them the heroes they deserve to be. We need to show our children that heroes come on all kinds of bodies, all kinds of minds and that is something we should love and respect as a society. We need to make tv shows and films as diverse as they can be so our children and their children can understand themselves, love themselves, and treat each other with empathy.
