The worlds created by Tove Jansson and Astrid Lindgren offered the same kind of freedom and rebellion against limitations imposed by society. Each one of the Moomin characters is of equal value, and they are allowed to be as eccentric as they like.

my 100% favorite thing about rowan blanchard is that none of the selfies on her instagram make her look beautiful. it’s basically like shes saying, yeah, i’m an international celebrity, but i’m also a teenager with oily skin and eye bags who doesn’t always smile and the way i look doesn’t matter more than who i am or what i stand for. it’s this huge silent act of rebellion against society’s expectations of women and i love her for it
Fact #264: Loving yourself while being trans, for being trans, is an act of cool as heck rebellion against a society that consatntly tells us to hate ourselves. Viewing yourself in a positive way while constantly being bombarded with negativity is something you should be proud of being able to do.
