see it's funny because it's like when the brain sends a message

No matter what I do, I can't make myself try in school. I'm a solid B student, but I know if I applied myself fully,instead of procrastinating until the last minute and handing in first drafts, I could be a ninties student. Ugh. I keep fucking myself over. Advice?

Hiya there!
omggg i understand. i really do. this happens to me too :((
thing is procrastination strikes at times just as this & youve got so much potential & can easily score well. but dont worry, with some time, hard work & patience you can tackle it!
i haven’t put the basic things you find on websites cuz you prolly know/ read em. i put a few things i use & find helpful. 
(sry if somethings sound harsh, it’s just that being honest is the best thing you can do to combat procrastination)

some tips: 

  • do you have a goal in life? a thing you’re working towards? maybe an ambition, or something personal that you want to achieve in life? everyone you sit down to study & feel like you dont want to, remember it. think of it. remember why you stared in the first place. maybe if you dont have a career choice for yourself yet, maybe have some small goal.
    for egs i want to be happy in life. if that’s your goal, do something that makes you happy. prioritize things that make you happy. 
  • a lyric by eminem i stand by:
    ‘look if you ever had one shot or one opportunity to seize everything you ever wanted in one moment, would you capture it or just let it slip?’
  • procrastination is the thief of time. i know its cliché lol but look at it this way; you have 2 weeks for an exam, you can either spend 2 weeks spreading out your work load and studying OR you can spend everyday wasting time & cramming in the last 2 days. 
  • what’s something that you procrastinate doing? like for me its reading books or youtube or just scrolling through tumblr. i cut out reading books during exam time & read only at night. i cut out youtube during exam time as well. tumblr is something i come to once a day fr a few minutes. this all took time & it wasn’t easy.
    so cut out things that you procrastinate on. one by one. every small action matters. 
  • try the pomodoro method. give this a read & try it. you can download the app as well!
  • read this from this awesome site:
    “ I have friends who almost never let themselves do the really fun things they want to do during the semester.
    They’ll talk about how much they want to play a certain game or watch a new movie, but when I suggest that they just go play it, they’ll say: “I really can’t; I have way too much homework and I’d feel guilty.”
    Five minutes later, though, I’ll see them scrolling through their Facebook feed.
    I call this low-density fun.
    Scrolling through your news feed or watching a few funny videos on YouTube is easy, and it’s sort of fun to do.
    However, because it’s so easy and feels so unlike “real” fun, it’s easy to not feel guilty about it – which leads to a lot of procrastination.
    The solution? Commit to having your high-density fun.
    If you want to play a video game later, commit to starting it at 8 p.m.
    Then, make sure all your work is done by then.
    Let your high-density fun create a deadline that propels you into focused work. “
  • a quote i LOVE:
    “effort never betrays you”
  • try the 2 minute method. 
    study for JUST 2 minutes. and then maybe just 2 more minutes? then maybe just 2 more! 
    trick your brain like this. trick your brain into thinking that studying is actually fun & that you’d want to do it just for 2 more minutes & keep going on. it really works for meeee!
  • try this study method: 
    • do the easiest or most fun thing the first
    • then do the hardest
    • then the 2nd hardest
    • then something that HAS to be done
    • then finish off with something easy & fun!
  • eat the frog lol pls not really
    if you have something which you HATE doing, do that first. finish that first & then go ahead with the rest.
  • is there something you really like doing? for egs if you loooove chocolate, you can buy a small stash & keep it away. then you sit down & do some work & then IF and ONLY IF you’re satisfied with yourself, indulge in yourself. if you’re unhappy with the work done, do not take it.
  • if youve got a lot of things to do, make a timetable for yourself or a to-do list. also allocate an hour of activities/ exercise/ something you can do to get fresh air. it gets the blood flowing & helps a lot!
  • if its a subject you hate:
    just using my egs here, i hate physics & I’m bad at it but doing sums & questions make me happy cuz then with some hard work, i get the correct answer! so if you have a subject such as this, try to do something which helps you get an answer which might motivate you!
  • if you’re an audio learner (you can find you which type of learner you are here) try listening to some videos while you jog/ exercise. Khan academy (an app) lets you download the videos you want and u can listen to em offline. they’re really really good!!
  • if you know what type of learner you are, study using those methods!
  • think of the effort you have put in, in the past few years!! youve been in school for so long & if you dont put in the effort for this year, you’re basically wasting the time you spent in the past few years!
  • think of the effort, time & money your parents put to get you this education. work hard & make em proud ☺️
  • do you have a park in your area/ a coffee shop/ library? go there, DO NOT GET WIFI!!! delete all the games off your phone  a well if you want to, & study there.
  • think of all that you can do for this world. youve got so much potential & so much to give. why waste it? 
    if you ever fail in anything, that is okay, you can always try again! just remember, its the effort that counts.
  • be a sincere student. you’re not only lying to your teachers, you’re lying to your parents & yourself.
  • if it really gets out of hand, call your mum/ dad/ sibling t sit with you in the same room & study while they’re there, or better, teach them! that way they can call you out when you’re wasting time.
  • switch off your wifi modem? ask ur family members if its okay lols
  • give ur phone/ computer/ tablet/ etc to your patents, tell em to lock it in a cupboard & not give it to u. tell them to hide the key as well 😂
  • study with friends if that helps you! prom each other when you waste time 
  • try fear?
    the day before your exam, work up all the things that might happen if you dont do your exam well or if you dont study. that might get your motors running? warning: this is kinda pessimistic. this is not for everyone. also if you have anxiety pls ignore this 
  • remember, just be you. having fun is no crime but trying to escape your responsibilities is well kinda. try to get eternal happiness NOT momentary happiness.
  • do not let the toxic mixture of laziness & fear mess everything up 
  • watch this 😂 
  • watch this as well! then get back to work k!!
  • this post by @emmastudies on how to beat procrastination is v v good!!
  • make a good timetable if you’d like & stick to it. again u can force your fam to help u
  • discipline is MUST. try to follow a strict routine!
    “suffer the pain of discipline or the pain of regret.”
  • do NOT compare yourself to others.
  • everybody makes mistake, everybody has those days but the goal is to nOT make the same one again. try not to!
  • look, you can do it. set your mind to it. sit down, get your things out & just begin.
    i know you can. YOU know you can!!!! the only thing stopping you is you. do not let your dreams be crushed by a the needs of momentary happiness.

sry if this post is kinda long oops
i hope this helped! 
ace this, hun! you can do it. if you ever want to talk/need help, pls do send me an ask/ message.  
i know that its hard to break procrastination but trust me, you will get over it. just keep trying, k?
take care & good luck. 💕

  • Anontisemite: Whether or not you're willing to admit it, whether or not you even realize it, you are oppressed. I mean look at the ridiculous dress code, being forced to cover everything from toes to hair, just put on some pants already and don't wear long sleeves when it's too hot, it's not healthy! Being forced to be a housewife and bear children, you're living like it's 1950. You are supporting patriarchy and holding back feminism by adhering to a patriarchal religion.
  • Gentileproblems: I’m being oppressed by dressing how I want you guuuyyyzzzzz…. :( I don’t know how I stand it.
  • Also, literally nobody is making me get married? I’ll get married and have children because that’s what I want out of life, but those aren’t the only things I want, for crying down the sink! My ambitions won’t end the moment I get engaged, because I’m an actual human being, not a weird cause for you to champion without my say-so. Get lost, I’m not interested.
  • Anontisemite: Look honey, it's not your fault that you don't recognize your own oppression but you and other women like you need help. Religion is merely a farce created by men to control women. The feminist cause wants to help you, that's what we're here for. Of course you think you're husband will let you chase your ambitions once your married but that's not how religious marriage works. You'll be nothing but a trussed slave and that's a tragedy.
  • Gentileproblems: Can someone please tell Jacob he is oppressing me he still hasn’t messaged me back and I’m thinking this is to do with our horrible patriarchal religion.
  • Arothejew: Jacob! Young man, what do you have to say for yourself
  • Jacob-the-pianist: I'm sorry I'm male, I'm sorry I'm white, I'm sorry I'm male, I'm sorry I'm white
  • Anontisemite: Oh you poor girl. I hope one day you'll realizing how vile and silly the Jewish religion is because you need help. You could have such a full, happy life but instead you've confined yourself to misery and you don't even know it.
  • Gentileproblems: 1/10 trolling try harder next time
  • Anontisemite: I assure you I am not trolling, I want to help you and women like you. I have no problems with Jews but I do have a problem with Judaism and organized religions that inherently oppress women.
  • Gentileproblems: Kay sure… how about you help by listening to us, rather than fighting for us? I’m not feeling particularly oppressed, here. Are you?
  • Gentileproblems (general): did anon seriously think sending me anonymous messages telling me my entire culture was Wrong would make me want to convert? Oh, goyim…
  • Satirenon 1: breaking news an anti semitic anon has caused jews everywhere to decide to be atheists OH NO IT'S HAPPENING TO MEEE *all memory of anything relating to judaism in my life is suddenly gone and i am now a free un oppressed woman*
  • Gentileproblems: oh, teach me your ways, un-oppressed one! is there hope for one such as me, comfortable in her religion and proud of her people? or will i have to moulder in the cave of deluded yidden… only time will tell.
  • Anontisemite: Oh honey, I don't want you to convert. I want you to be a secular, free independent woman who doesn't rely on a misogynistic culture of lies and rules designed to keep you oppressed. Surely deep down you realize organized religion is a farce created by men? It's so obvious. If you weren't tied to a backwards culture that didn't allow women education you'd be able to comprehend better. I'm so sorry, please learn to accept help when it's extended. That is what feminism is here for.
  • Gentileproblems: white feminism has reached its zenith
  • Anontisemite: I am not certainly not antisemitic, I do not hate Jews, I want to help their women. What I hate Judaism, Islam and any organized religion. They are forms of misogynistic, systematic oppression.
  • Gentileproblems: 'I'm not raaaaaacist, I just hate these two heavily racialised religions…'
  • Anontisemite: though i too was once proud of my religion and my people i have seen the light and become a truely liberated woman 100% of anti semitic feminists agree that it is the right course of action so let go of the misogynistic tethers of religion and truely free yourself from your harmful self oppression like i did
  • Gentileproblems: assimilate and let go of your culture i a random anon know far more about it than you do
  • Satirenon 1: HELP THE SECOND STAGE IS HAPPENING I FEEL MYSELF BECOMING KNOWLEDGEABLE I NOW UNDERSTAND MY WROOONGS OH THE LIGHT OF SEEING THE WORLD FREE FROM THE HORRIBLE LIES THAT RELIGION TOLD ME I NOW AM EDUCATEEED
  • Gentileproblems: at the third stage, you ascend to a higher plane of existence, like on the original Stargate show.
  • Commentanon 1: i hate judaism but im teeeechiiincally not anti semitic right? -actual quote from the anon
  • Gentileproblems: i know, like how do you even rationalise that what even
  • Anontisemite: I am not antisemitic, I am antireligion. All I want is to end the systematic oppression of women inherent to Judaism and Islam. It is my life's mission and one day I hope to save all of the women like you, women who trapped and hurting and don't even know it.
  • Gentileproblems: Did you know Judaism and Islam are the only perpetrators of misogyny ever? GREYFACE TELLS ALL!
  • Commentanon 2: oh g-d of course anon doesnt include christianity just islam and judaism yet somehow aren't anti semitic or islamaphobic right? anti religion yet only against the two religions with the most hate and violence directed towards them? totally just looking out for women right?
  • Gentileproblems: i know, right? noooo bias there, no siree….
  • Anontisemite: You can still be a Jew, you can eat bagels and gettlefish and all of that, but you should be able to wear regular clothes without having rocks thrown at you, have intercourse without needing to do it through a cloth with a hole, not be forced to live separately from other people once a month. It's barbaric. Help me help you. Help me help women like you. This is going to be my career, rescuing the downtrodden women of archaic religious cults.
  • Gentileproblems: Okay, this is actually genuinely offensive. Where on Earth did you learn about Judaism, Stormfront? For G-d’s sake, choose another career at the very least- nobody will want to be rescued by you.
  • Commentanon 3: These anons today are even more ludicrous than last week's neo-nazis. Seriously talk about being so "open-minded" that your brains fall out and your mind closes again behind them.
  • Gentileproblems: Tell me about it, I have a permanent look of disgust etched onto my face by now.
  • Commentanon 4: Don't let them bother you. That one is literally a xtian-atheist religious missionary. Just treat them like you would any other xtian missionary.
  • Gentileproblems: 'Nope, I don't want your holy book… I've already got one…. it's vintage…'
  • Commentanon 5: wtf anon and ur stiiiiill not anti semitic? i'm waiting for what exactly anons definition of anti semitism is or does it even exist since how can you oppress someone who wants to oppressed or whatever they are trying to say jewish women are doing
  • Gentileproblems: it’s a horrible, horrible journey of ‘not antisemitic i swear’ and i can’t get off
  • Satirenon 2: I want to be offended but all I can focus on now is gettlefish. Seriously. GETTLEFISH
  • Gentileproblems: It’s like kettle crisps mixed with gefilte fish, I assume.
  • Commentanon 6: anon is just jealous of the way i work this super cute skirt with my bright colorful tights and that my marriage will be more emotionally fulfilling because it's not about sex all the time (it's also been proven that because a husband and wife can't have each other sexually all the time they appreciate it more when they do)
  • Gentileproblems: Oh my gosh, talk frum fashion to me! And I’ve never heard of that second point- I shall Google at once!
  • Commentanon 7: is gettlefish like non kosher gefilte fish?
  • Gentileproblems: I think this is one of those things that ‘everyone knows’ about Jews except for Jews
  • Commentanon 7: oh like hanukkah trees? (always spelled that way because fuck the original hebrew spellings lets at 2 k's for the hell of it because goyim)
  • Gentileproblems: yep, that’s totally A Thing, because judaism is christianity in a funny hat.
  • Anontisemite: I don't know what Stormfront, I'm a New Age nondenominational culturally Christian atheist Buddhist. As I've already explained to you I am not antisemitic or islamaphobic, I am anti-Judaism and anti-Islam. Goodness, I wish you were allowed an education where they teach you these things. I don't have a problem with the secular women and I want to help the poor souls who are 'religious' (rapped). It's the men I take issue with, for forcing girls with potential into little more than slaves.
  • Gentileproblems: Rapped? Did Tupac put you up to this or something? And good grief, that first sentence is the most white-goy line I have ever read.
  • Satirenon 3: help i think i actually got second hand white goy from that first sentence im dying
  • Gentileproblems: do you have a weird urge to get a backwards hebrew tattoo? we’ll find a cure, i swear
  • Satirenon 4: Before your anon I was living my life as a poor, oppressed woman, trapped by the men in my life forcing me to observe archaic rules. This, despite the fact I am a baalat teshuva who was inspired by women and doesn't actually have any men in my life. Not married and absent non-Jewish dad, but they're both oppressing me quite a lot. Thanks to the anon I've realized I can again be free. I will give up my meaningful and beautiful culture that I love. I shall eat gettlefish and run wild.
  • Gentileproblems: The sarky responses to my anons are the actual best thing. And seriously, someone needs to come up with a recipe for gettlefish, pronto.
  • Satirenon 5: for gettlefish you should first go to your local store and pick up a few things, gefilte fish, matzo ball mix, latke mix, bagels, lox, chopped liver and cream cheese (just to make sure it isn't kosher). Now go home, and get out a very large mixing bowl and put all of the ingredients into it and mix thoroughly. Place in a large casserole dish and bake until crispy and then eat because it is the single most jewish food in the world according to goyim, add some bacon if you really want to
  • Gentileproblems: That’s so disgusting I dare someone to make it
  • Satirenon 5: make it and send to the anon
  • Gentileproblems: Where do I send it? The Castle of Denial?
  • Commentanon 8: I literally can't stop laughing. They probably mean to write trapped but I prefer to think they put 'rapped' in parentheses because they want everything in that sentence to be rapped out loud as you read. Break it down now, rap about helping the poor souls.
  • Gentileproblems: lay me some tasty beats, jumblr. “I don’t like your people but I’m not racist, I swear…”
  • Satirenon 6: I think your anon is magic. I was a happily oppressed religious women but then I read everything she wrote and
  • suddenly the world is new, suddenly I am new. My curly hair became straight! My skirt disappeared and was replaced by skinny jeans! I don't know if I can handle all of this freedom yet though, not without a man to guide me. Change me back, oh powerful saviour anon! I'm not ready!
  • Gentileproblems: Please, we need you to be our white saviour! Oh, whatever shall we do?
  • Commentanon 9: What the actual fuck is a "New Age nondenominational culturally Christian atheist Buddhist"? Is that a thing?
  • Gentileproblems: Apparently so… oy.
  • Satirenon 7: HELP! I chose to practice modesty by covering my hair on holy days and I think I've oppressed myself! Already men are making me little more than a slave although I have an education and so much potential. Damn my religious choices!
  • Gentileproblems: Gosh darn it straight to heck! Deciding for yourself how you want to be seen, how dare you! That’s for the New Age Christian Buddhist whateveritwas to do!
  • Anontisemite: I'm sorry to see that you and your friends have resorted to making fun of good intentions. You may not think you need my help but me and other feminists will continue fighting for you nonetheless. I promise that one day we will create a world where you can be free from the bonds of oppressive misogynist religious law and archaic cultural traditions. You are only using negativity to lash out because you fear change, as your religion has taught you. But change is good and it will free you.
  • Gentileproblems: ngl i laughed
  • Commentanon 10: I feel like calling you honey just makes the whole thing so patronizing like stop listening to that religion that tells you what to do, I'm going to tell you what to do instead.
  • Gentileproblems: i knooow! like they don’t even know me! it’s gross as heck frankly- but i’m glad my followers are finding it funny.
  • Satirenon 8: help though im a lesbian my religion is compelling me to marry a man and become his subservient wife saaavee meeeeee
  • Gentileproblems: Must…. resist….. anon’s interpretation…. of my religion!
  • Satirenon 9: Oh..oh my goodness, my magen david necklace was sooo tight and it was choking me but that anon magically broke it and now i can breathe thank g-d or wait am i not supposed to do that anymore
  • Gentileproblems: Thank Richard Dawkins, probably.
  • Satirenon 10: anon nooo even though my religion teaches to question our laws and to change with the times it is suddenly morphing into everything you say it iiisss
  • Gentileproblems: Anon is, in fact, Haruhi Suzumiya
  • Anontisemite: Laughing is only a defense mechanism but one day you will be grateful for our movement :). There is an ever growling movement of feminist women against organized religion like yours whose mission is to save women like you. We are very well educated about Judaism and your culture and we will help you to adjust to the modern world. Misogyny and systematic oppression of women through forced dress codes and throwing rocks won't happen to you, no one will hurt you. You don't have to fear change.
  • Gentileproblems: Seriously, who keeps spreading the idea that religious women can’t be feminists? This is frankly depressing, and why we need to educate goyim to free them from their horrible, misogynistic, blinkered ideologies :(
  • Commentanon 11: It's hard to be convincing when they're sending asks on Anon. Like that's the least personal thing you could do.
  • Gentileproblems: I know, eh? When it started, I was actually pretty sure they were that ‘women don’t need feminism’ blog from a couple of hours ago, but now I’m not so sure…
  • Satirenon 11: white feminist goy barbie, she talks! you pull her string and she spouts nonsense!! (idk if anon is actually a she but like you get my point)
  • Gentileproblems: I kind of hope so, actually, because think of how much more creepy and paternalistic it would be if anon was male.
  • Commentanon 12: As opposed to cultural Christian atheist Buddhism, which is entirely disorganized.
  • Gentileproblems: *sniggering* Anyway, correct me if I’m wrong but isn’t the Dalai Lama very much against converts to Buddhism?
  • Satirenon 12: I somehow seem to have put on a long skirt. Someone please send a secular white "feminist" to help me.
  • Gentileproblems: I keep thinking of that Monty Python skit, you know, with the peasant shouting ‘Help! Help! I’m being oppressed!’
  • Anontisemite: Honey, you're being silly! I already have an education because in out free feminist culture women are allowed to learn. You can do it too! And of course a religious women can't be a feminist, it's the exact opposite of feminist. Religion, especially Judaism and Islam, is the source of all misogyny in the world.
  • Gentileproblems: To be honest there are so many people mocking you in my inbox I thought this was a parody. I am still not quite sure. And.. so do I? Dad’s a university professor, and I got early admission to his uni- had my first class yesterday, actually- where I’m reading Sociology and History. Also, pretty sure a good definition of feminism is that women can do as they please, whatever that means to them.
  • Satirenon 13: It's all a lie! You've been taught lies your entire life! White goyishé feminists know more than you do about the tradition you were raised in again and again for the past 3326 years. Definitely.
  • Gentileproblems: No, what are you talking about, they skim-read a Rationalwiki article once! They’re totally qualified to tell me how to live my life!
  • Satirenon 14: I'm wearing a kippah and a mini skirt at the same time. I'm only have oppressed on my mothers side.
  • Gentileproblems: :D but oppression is passed down through the mother, donchaknow
  • Satirenon 11: yeah for all you know anon is a really creepy guy looking to harass jewish feminists and give feminists a bad name
  • Gentileproblems: yeah p much
  • Commentanon 13: thats religious misogyny at work, the only true feminist religion is spiritual christian influenced combined with a bastardized eastern """"spiritual"""" religion entirely divorced from from it's actual source and rules and replaced with new ageyness and a hint of racism :)
  • Gentileproblems: 'Hey, mum and dad! I'm rebelling against you by converting to a watered-down version of a religion I barely understand!'
  • Satirenon 15: *sighs* Now I have to go tell the three female Rabbis I know personally that none of them should have received an education, because a got on the intertextuality knows Judaism better than us
  • Gentileproblems: It’s such a drag being oppressed like this, no?
  • Commentanon 14: Wtf the fuck is "free feminist culture"? I'm laughing so hard. Also kinda offended that anon is equating education with knowledge. Like a lot of people can't afford college or have learning disabilities but they're their own people, fuck off.
  • Gentileproblems: anon is patronising as heck- go ask them, I don’t know.
  • Anontisemite: Yes, I see you and the many people mocking me on your blog but I really don't mind because I know that you don't know better. I'm not a man or looking to undermine feminism - why would you even think that? You're a bit paranoid aren't you? Feminism is about female freedom and my life is dedicated to helping women achieve that. Judaism inherently undermines female freedom and that is want to eradicate it and rescue women from it. It's not antisemitism.
  • Gentileproblems: Alongside Jews, there are atheists, Muslims, and Christians mocking you. Quit while you’re… well, I can’t actually say ‘ahead’, really.
  • Anontisemite: I don't mind the mockery. I have my cause my cause is you and your fellow oppressed females or Judaism. It doesn't matter if you think you don't need it, a feminist fights for the freedom of all women no matter what. You haven't been taught this but you are woman who has value. You deserve a life without men who shame you for existing and think you have no worth except that which comes forth from your womb.
  • Gentileproblems: but… you are the only one saying this… can you save me from *you*, please?
  • Satirenon 16: for $8000 a month i will stop oppressing myself anon
  • Gentileproblems: yes please anon pay my uni fees
  • Satirenon 17: I am a Jewish feminist am I causing global warming
  • Gentileproblems: I want to make a joke about Moses and rising sea levels here….
  • Anontisemite: Oh honey, let feminism help you be truly free from the bonds of patriarchal religion.
  • Gentileproblems: we’ve been around a few thousand years, your patronising wheedling isn’t gonna stop that.
  • Commentanon 15: In all seriousness, what I find most fascinating about the anon is that for someone who claims to want to free me from those telling me what to do etc., she/he is telling me exactly what to do! For someone who claims to want everyone to be free, she/he is not allowing me the freedom to do what I want. In other words, hypocrites will be hypocrites.
  • Gentileproblems: Goyim gonna goy
  • Commentanon 16: Anon does know that Judaism is a matriarchal religion, correct? That women are revered and are incredibly valued by Jewish society?
  • Gentileproblems: what are you talking about religion is BAD forever
  • Commentanon 17: For all who are trying to say that she is not free while being Jewish is the worst thing you could say. Being free means she can choose what religion she follows. Also the Jewish faith is not oppressive I actually know a female cantor/rabbi who is amazing at what she does. You are being oppressive by telling her she can't be what she wants and saying that you are not being racist even though all your support is stereotypes and from the 1900's get with the time! Take this as a warning
  • Gentileproblems: Thanks so much, anon! I mean I’m opinionated as all heck, if I didn’t think i was being respected I’d leave, believe me.
How Disney Handles Mature Topics

WARNING: CONTAINS SPOILERS FROM BIG HERO 6, INSIDE OUT, ZOOTOPIA, AND GIRL MEETS WORLD!!!

What do crime fighting robots, emotions, a bunny cop, and a teenage girl have in common?

The answer is in all their stories they faced similar societal pressures and/or internal adversities. Hiro dealt with grief and depression and fought a notorious mystery, Riley Andersen was driven to run away out of homesickness and loneliness, Judy Hopps fought to break stereotypes in a supposedly developed society while chasing down a serial drugger, and Riley Matthews coped with the ups and downs of teenage drama with her most important friendships put to the test.

Critics and audiences alike agree that only three of the four examples mentioned above fulfill its promises of humour, child-friendliness, and a mature underlying theme.

Girl Meets World is not one of the three, and part of it is attributed to the fact that it’s a Disney Channel TV show, and the other part is because parents are fully aware of what contents their kids are watching as opposed to movies.
I’ll start with the parents. Simply put, the synopsis of each episode is usually a clear indicator of what will happen, and thanks to the Tumblr fandom it’s also easy to see spoilers. Of course, not all parents go through the effort, but if they watch the show too and see something they don’t agree with, they can simply turn it off, unlike films where you pay to get a few surprises.

Now that the schpiel about butthurt parents is over, I can focus on Disney Channel’s biggest flaws. Disney Channel as a whole is worth over $7 billion, but GMW only constitutes for a small part of it. It rarely airs on TV because of its low ratings and doesn’t account for as mich profit. Because of this, not as much effort is put into it as more successful series or movies. (Zootopia made over $600 million in box offices its opening weekend!)

Secondly, Disney Channel is known for its cheap humour (and overusing the laugh track). Girl Meets World was supposed to be a coming-of-age show that taught inportant life lessons, but its 30 minutes of screen time is filled with bad jokes that take away from the message, only for the theme to be crammed in at the last few minutes. Also, TV shows use humour to break intense tension, and it’s funny the first few times but afterwards it makes people wish that the characters could have a serious moment free of interruption. True, Disney movies also have a fair share of corny jokes, but they know when a character should be funny and when they shouldn’t.

Since the audience is mainly kids, the writers have to sugarcoat serious topics. This takes away from GMW the credibility BMW had. They’re tried covering topics such as homosexuality before, but backlash from the audience led to the dumbing down of a lot of their material and thus missing a lot of oppurtunities to teach kids about life and society the way these movies had.

Big Hero 6 focused on Hiro’s grief after Tadashi died, and portrays depression as it is: loss of interest, changed appetite, no energy nor motivation. Disney could’ve gone the typical movie route by exaggerating or romanticising it, but there was a reason they chose not to do that.

Inside Out focuses on the mind in a unique way. Just like in real life, there isnno clear antagonist, but struggles are still present. Riley Andersen is controlled by five main emotions: Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear, and Disgust. Whilst Joy and Sadness are in the Long Term Memory of Riley’s brain, the other three emotions are in control. Because of them, Riley didn’t think twice about running from California to her home in Minnesota until it was almost too late. The fact that she was almost emotionless until she was about to leave the city makes a statement about how having a mental illness feels like…nothing. Disney consulted many experts and took years to craft the details of this movie to accurately portray the pubescent mind for the intent of sending a message about mental health to viewers.

Most recently, Zootopia discusses how modern racism continues to tear society apart. Throughout the whole story, Judy Hopps (a rabbit) was ridiculed about her dreams to be a police officer on the basis of her size and “cute” demeanor. Nick Wilde, a fox con artist, takes up a life of passive crime until he meets Judy because he was conditioned by other species in Zootopia that foxes were sneaky and always up to no good. The plot itself is about how Zootopia is split 90 : 10 between prey and predator mammals. The predators are scapegoated as the animals mysteriously became savage and primitive, and the majority feared the minority because of what their leaders said about predators. In a way, Zootopia is simply criticising the wrongs of government and society through its cartoon symbolism.

Clearly Disney is more than capable of handling deep and mature topics in movies, and if they can do it for films they can do it with TV too. Why don’t they do it? Because they’re too afraid of what would happen if they did.

anonymous asked:

bob and eliza get EQUAL the amount of hate omfg. I can never believe the ppl so up bellamy's ass they inherently prove the hate that eliza gets. like bob has to face racism everyday YES. & eliza has to face SEXISM. the fact that ppl constantly say bob has had it rougher than eliza proves the inequalities that ppl kiss the feet of men all the time. it's always funny bc it's ofc from the bellarke fandom who like to erase poc in the clexa fandom which is racist in itself. speaking as an asian (cont

(cont) it’s always ridiculous to see the bellarke fandom try to be on high horses when they actively think bob does no wrong while they say eliza deserves to be given hate comments on her instagram. or how they easily can dismiss the hate she gets bc she was “unprofessional.” or the fact they get mad that she talks more about a canon ship than a NONCANON fictional ship like bellarke and are entitled af thinking they’re heteronormativity means they can reduce eliza’s to the blonde dumb (cont)

(cont) stereotype. like wtf so many of eliza’s hate is just as uncalled for & these comments usually don’t contain things like ur disrespectful to bellarke but instead contain. ur just a typical blond dumb, fatshaming even tho she’s alrdy pretty skinny to the already ridiculous standards girls are held to, or who she dates. the fact that bellarkes have never acknowledged they did anything wrong or even think well that’s what she gets is the same kind of ‘asking for it’ mentality that’s fucked up


Okay, listen buddy: I’m really, really fucking tired of receiving hate in my ask box every single time I make a fucking post that - God forbid - acknowledges the racism in The 100 fandom and the hate Bob has dealt with. 

Do you understand what you are getting pissed off at me about? Hating on Eliza - something I have never, and will never do. What never ceases to amaze me is how pissed off anon’s manage to get in my ask box about things I have not done and have no control over. Zero.

Well, news flash: I am a single person. I cannot go to my entire Bellarke fandom and tie the hands of every single person doing something problematic on their computers. Okay? I fucking have zero control over that whatsoever. I don’t know what the fuck you are trying to achieve by sending me this message. 

I didn’t send Eliza hate. That wasn’t me

Go fucking focus your attention somewhere it might actually do something.

“the fact that ppl constantly say bob has had it rougher than eliza proves the inequalities that ppl kiss the feet of men all the time.”

Have any of you dumbasses ever considered the fact that maybe, just maybe our anger has something to do with the fact that Bob has deactivated his Twitter more than once in just a year, or perhaps all of his tweets speaking out against the hate he receives, or maybe it might have something to do with the racial slurs on his Twitter, or maybe, just fucking maybe, it has something to do with, i don’t know, someone from your fandom comparing him to a rapist because he made a joke about his fucking hair????? But of course none of you ever think that’s a rational reason why we might get mad. You just think we’re “kiss[ing] the feet of men”. Jesus fucking christ - i swear to god it’s like you all have sand in your brains. Well guess fucking what? Not everything is fucking misogyny. We’re talking about hate Bob receives because … WHY???? Tell me why, anon???? 

IT’S BECAUSE OF THE FUCKING COLOUR OF HIS SKIN. THAT’S LITERALLY IT. A LARGE PORTION OF YOUR FANDOM HATES ON BOB BECAUSE THEY’RE RACIST ASSHOLES. THEY HATE ON HIM FOR EXISTING. So get off of your fucking highhorse. 

“like bob has to face racism everyday YES. & eliza has to face SEXISM.”

Okay, you know what - I have to call this out. Because here’s the thing: men are more privileged than woman. That is true. All right? But white woman are still more privileged than men of colour. And if you can’t see that, there’s nothing I can do for you. And I also happen to suck at explaining this so, I don’t know, go educate yourself on @bellamyblakeprotectionsquad2k16 blog or smth idk man

“the bellarke fandom try to be on high horses when they actively think bob does no wrong”

Okay but this is just amazing because what the fuck HAS Bob done to receive the hates he get? Been born with darker skin? Dared to play Bellamy Blake? Oh blimey what a crime. I’m in awe of you rn

“they say eliza deserves to be given hate comments on her instagram”

Bitch, where the fuck did I say Eliza deserves hate messages. I have fucking said time and time again not to send Eliza hate, so what the fuck is this doing in my ask box? Jfc

“and are entitled af thinking they’re heteronormativity means they can reduce eliza’s to the blonde dumb stereotype.”

How the fuck is our “heteronormativity” related to reducing Eliza to a dumb blonde. Heteronormativity =/= dumb blonde stereotype???? Like, at this point it honestly just looks like you’re trying to use big words because you think it makes you look smart.

It really doesn’t. In fact, it just proves your point less because you like to say that we constantly erase the POC in your fandom? Well, guess what you just erased?

The LGBTA+ in our fandom. And, as someone who is part of that community, that pisses me off anon. Did you know that at least half the Bellarke blogs I follow are bisexual? Did you know that? No, you fucking didn’t because you just assumed that we are all straight. Holy shit this is one of the most ignorant asks I’ve received.

“the fact that bellarkes have never acknowledged they did anything wrong”

Oh. My. God. 

YES WE FUCKING HAVE. OH MY GOD. I HAVE MADE SO MANY POSTS TELLING THE PROBLEMATIC BELLARKERS IN MY FANDOM TO GO FUCK OFF. Like? Obviously you aren’t a fucking part of this fandom so you have no fucking right to say that we have never acknowledged the problematic part of our fandom.

Yes. We have. The big Bellarke blogs have. I follow them. I know - you have no fucking clue so don’t act like you know more about the people in my fandom than I do. I know there are problematic Bellarkers. Okay? I fucking know. I’ve called them out. I’ve reported them. So sit your ass back down please. 

People who follow me know that I would never condone hate of any kind. So don’t come into my ask box telling me all this shit I already know. Yes, it’s wrong for people to send Eliza hate, or to body-shame her, or to do whatever. Okay? I get it. I know. I’ve said it before. My god.  

I honestly just find it really fucking ironic that you are in my ask box, blatantly ignoring the gross amount of hate Bob has been receiving for years, when IT’S FROM THE PEOPLE IN YOUR FANDOM. I think it’s actually funny that you are placing your entire fandom on a pedestal just to say that all Bellarkers suck and send a ton of hate, when it’s your fandom that is infamous for sending hate.

When it’s your fandom that is the reason Bob has deactivated his Twitter more than once. When it is your fandom that has driven Adina Porter off of Twitter on multiple nights because she was so tired of dealing with your bs. When it is your fandom that is the reason Jason Rothenberg’s twitter has been inactive for months now. When it is your fandom that hacked Alycia and basically publicly humiliated her all in the name of “truth”. When it is your fandom that sends anon hate (like this one right here) day after day after day. When it is your fandom that triggered a teenage girl’s mental breakdown. When it is your fandom that sexually harassed a thirteen year old. When it is your fandom who frequently sends hate to gossipgrounder. When it is your fandom who is trying to get Eliza, your lord and saviour, unemployed. When it is your fandom that warranted a video by Jarod Joseph mocking all the bullshit your fandom does. Jarod Joseph, who also, funnily enough, received hate from your fandom. Well, let’s add to the list then, shall we? It was your fandom who sent hate to Bob, Adina, Jarod, Jason, as well as Ricky and Sachin and - oh - basically everyone who your fandom decided was “being too nice to Blorkes” or who’s skin was too dark or whatever fucking delusional reasons your fandom came up with. When it is in your fandom that there’s a massive group called the “anti’s” because they’re such shitty people.

I can’t even think of all the bullshit your fandom has pulled these past few months because the magnitude is unreal. So why don’t you get off your fucking high horse, anon, and realize how truly fucked up a large portion of your fandom is. 

PS. Next time you want a civil response, get the fuck off anon. Because if you had sent this when I first made this account, maybe you would have gotten one. But not anymore. I’m so goddamn sick of people like you sending shit like this because you know you can hide behind anonymous. So if you’re expecting a nice response from now on? Oh buddy, you are sorely mistaken. I’ll give you a civil response when you stop being cowards and quit hiding behind your computer screen. Otherwise, I don’t give a fuck about you - I don’t give a fuck about anyone who stoops so low as to send anon hate.
