You know it really warms my heart that a wlw ship between a Mexican heroine and an Indian heroine is the most popular ship in the fandom. Trimberly means a lot to me not just on the surface of it being a ship between two girls who support each other, but because it’s interracial. Rarely, if ever, have I seen an interracial wlw ship (besides Korrasami) receive so much love and support from a fanbase. And it makes me so happy seeing myself, a wlw Mexican girl, represented in Trini both in terms of us being unapologetically Latina and being wlw. This is really important and it breaks my heart that a movie franchise with so much potential flopped and there’s a higher chance we will not get a sequel even though we deserve one. Please support the movie in any way you can. The cast is so wonderful and the movie was executed amazingly, I really want to see the other sequels this movie rightfully deserves. I want to see these kids grow and and discover more about themselves. I want to hear Trini say she’s bi, or pan, or lesbian. Or hell, even just saying “wlw.” I want to hear what Trini’s last name is in this incarnation of the series. I want to know more about Jason and Kim and Zack. I want more to be done with Billy. I wanted to see if they’d try their hardest to get a Native American actor to play Tommy Oliver, or even if they managed to let Tommy be a girl in this incarnation. I wanted so much with this series and I really really hope we get to see it thrive because if it flops for good and it doesn’t get those sequels and love it deserves I don’t think I could go on being the same person. This was the movie tumblr always preached about. So why is it that a highly diverse movie with 4/5 leads of color, a black autistic hero, a wlw Latina hero, a cast who act like real kids and who have consequences for their actions, whose acting was phenomenal and felt real, who were given equal treatment the entire course of the movie, who have the set up for amazing representation in the future if we do get those movies, flopped? Please support power rangers. It was so good and deserved so much more than what it’s been given.
trini prbly bc she’s used to doing yoga p early in th quarry
who’s the one to make breakfast:

So just to be clear–GMO is a genetically modified organism. Do you guys even realize what GMO’s are every single piece of corn you have is a GMO since you’re not eating maize. Same w a shitton of wheat, like this one guy Norman Borlaug won a Nobel Prize bc he saved millions of Mexican, Indian, and Pakistsni lives by cultivating a strain of wheat that greatly increased production. Like any of L Corp’s forrays into anything to do with plants would thus conclude in a GMO. GMOs can also be flowers, trees, vegetables, fruits, etc.
Organic is a different matter but do you really think the actual person who’s probably the one engineering several GMO’s would be anti GMO
Sure she’d probably be healthy. But like. Lmao lena’s an engineer people who are anti GMO probably drive her nUTS.
Also may I remind you that Kara is technically a GMO if you think Lena wouldn’t eat her you’re dead wrong
We had a sub in social studies that said he wished kids still had nice normal names like John or Mary is that racist? My class is mostly Indian and Mexican kids and the last name he said before he said that was Guadalupe
Hi! I really like your writing, it really makes my day when I read something new from you, and I wanted to ask, if you have time, could you maybe do some HC about Trimberly + s/o relationship? Pretty please?

What these “Go Back to Africa and Mexico” White Supremacists don’t realize is, if all of us, every single obviously black person left and every brown person that remained moved, nothing but white and fair skin remained. YOU AND THIS ECONOMY WOULD HAVE NOTHING AND WOULD SUFFER. Why? We make up the majority of your top beloved sports, black men are now in college more than they are incarcerated. Black women are among the highest in college attendance and career advancement. PLUS we have a great if not the greatest in buying power! You wouldn’t get to benefit from great films featuring Denzel Washington and Will Smith, the films that have helped drive the entertainment industry. And if we had left like you wanted us to in the 60’s you wouldn’t have Eminem or Michael Jackson, the 2 people you have cried over for years. And the immigrants you laugh at who don’t mind tending to our fields, if they left, agriculture would suffer! Black and other cultural influence has driven America and you feed off of the currency it brings. You wouldn’t even have Taco Bell, or any Mexican food you claim to love from the people you claim to hate. You wouldn’t be better off. If we leave, this nation suffers. The numbers don’t lie. Besides, this IS an immigrant nation, you’re not home either.
