well, an important episode of my life has come to an end it seems. thank you bbc sherlock, you were very important to me in the last seven years, and I don’t regret this huge commitment I had, not in the least.
Seeing Tomorrowland earlier got me thinking about what other Disney Land movies might be about.
Main Street, U.S.A.: A spunky teenager obtains a special pin that transports them to a turn-of-the-century town and they learn a valuable lesson about the importance of nostalgia.
Adventureland: A spunky teenager obtains a special pin that transports them to a tropical rainforest and they learn a valuable lesson about the environment, climate change, and protecting wildlife. Also, they get the actual Dole Whip recipe.
Frontierland: A spunky teenager obtains a special pin that transports them to the Old West and they learn a valuable lesson about accurately preserving the past instead of rewriting or over-romanticizing it and treating all cultures with respect.
Fantasyland: A spunky teenager obtains a special pin that transports them to a fairy tale village and they learn a valuable lesson about gender politics and that boys can be princesses and girls can be heroes.
I was cleaning out folders on my laptop recently and came across hundreds of Brittana/Naya Rivera/Heather Morris pics and videos. They were almost entirely from 4-5 years ago, shortly after I came out. It really hit me why I’ve been so upset about everything going on with the 1OO. Brittana meant so much to me and made me feel less disgusting about being attracted to women. Clexa did this for a new group of young women, and it’s been devastating having everything ripped away from them.
While I love Clexa, I haven’t been involved in the community like I was with Brittana. I certainly don’t have any pictures or videos of the actresses saved anywhere. But I know what it’s like to be so vulnerable as a young wlw and what any kind of representation means. We scrambled for scraps with Brittana, eating up even the tiniest background moment. It was the opposite with Clexa. Clexa was like a five course meal, but the writers messed up by only serving two of the promised five courses and giving everyone food poisoning.
