“Adieu,“ he said, "this is goodbye. I’ll never forget you, never.” She stood silent. He looked at her and saw her eyes full of tears. He turned away. At this moment she wasn’t ashamed of loving him, because her physical desire had gone and all she felt towards him now was pity and a profound, almost maternal tenderness. She forced herself to smile. “Like the Chinese mother who sent her son off to war telling him to be careful ‘because war has its dangers,’ I’m asking you, if you have any feelings for me, to be as careful as possible with your life.” Because it is precious to you?“ he asked nervously. Yes. Because it is precious to me.” - Irène Némirovsky, Suite Française.
“It takes a lot of bravery to look around you and see the world not as it is, but as it should be. A world where the quarterback becomes best friends with the gay kid, and the girl with the big nose ends up on Broadway. Glee is about imagining a world like that, and finding the courage to open up your heart and sing about it. That’s what glee club is. And for the longest time, I thought that was silly. And now, I think it’s just about the bravest thing that anyone could do.”
Did you see tumblr flip out when Inside Out was released? The main character had both male and female emotions, so she MUST have been gender fluid (even though the creator of the film confirmed it was just because she was the main character and and the film took place inside her head so she needed diversity) she was shy and had trouble making friends so she MUST have been autistic. And she MUST have been a lesbian because a boy talked to her and she didn't get flustered around him.
…..The movie is about a little girl who basically spirals into depression due to her inability to cope with recently moving into a shit hole ..and all they care about is some genderflake bullshit? That movie is so fucking clever with how they personified emotions or memories, etc, and that’s all they got out of it?! Dear god, they have my pity. It must suck to be so…vapid.
