Steven Universe ain’t your average cartoon show. We got the crystal gems teaching Steven about his history as well as teaching the viewers about consent, breaking gender stereotypes, relationships, and everything progressive under the sun. We’ve seen the gems and Steven in action, however there is one person that’s been leveling up for the longest, and although she is only a human that’s not stopping her from becoming a monster.

Although Connie has stated that she doesn’t want to be a burden, whenever she has been on an adventure she has been a big help either physically or strategically. Connie is way more than just the best friend (love interest) for Steven — she is his confidant and partner in anti-crime. Connie was is an introvert and didn’t have any friends due to moving around so much, but after becoming friends with Steven we see how hard she rides for loyalty.
The only hip hop song that i know of that has touched on the subject of touching on yourself. Not many artist can make a song on the subject and then have other undertones of conservation of the earth. For this it puzzles the fuck out of me that most dont have Andre Ben/Jammin 3000 on their top 5 list.
