at monash university in melbourne the women’s department had a bake sale and cupcakes were one dollar for men and eighty cents for women and seventy cents for trans* people to represent the wage gap and heaps of guys kicked off about it being sexist and that’s how i finally understood how hypocritical and ignorant men’s rights activism is
to be fair that is pretty darn sexist… why cant stuff just be EQUAL for everyone?
*puts on horror movie*
fuck this im out
on a scale of one to wanting to throw yourself off Blackfriars Bridge, how much did Clockwork Princess emotional destroy you
you know, i’m a raging lesbian and i was never distracted by what other girls in my classes were wearing in high school. this is a male problem, not an “attracted to women” problem.
This is an “inability to respect women” problem.
Which is a male problem.
What am I doing with my life? I just want to connect with people. Why can’t I connect with people? Oh, right. It’s because I’m dead.

One of my favourite things is talking about books.
I could literally talk about books all day.
New books, old books, loved books, loathed books, popular books, forgotten books.
Um. Merida got a redesign. And tHIS IS NOT OKAY??
Sure Disney’s done redesigns for all their princesses lately and they messed those up pretty badly too. There’s no point raising a fuss about Cinderella and Aurora’s bangs because sigh I guess it’s just hair (even though it really is quite atrocious. Their iconic hairstyles are simply gone) and it’s the downright disrespectful appropriation going on in Pocahontas’ new look that merits more complaints. But this. THIS. They’ve taken poor Merida and turned her into exactly what she didn’t want to be. She’s clearly skinnier than before even though Brenda Chapman specifically designed her not to be, her poor precious face is almost unrecognisable and they put her in the dress that she hated, the dress that wasn’t just literally a physical constraint for her but symbolised everything that she hated about her life. They’ve put her in the dress that stands against everything she spent her entire film fighting against. They gave Merida choice and autonomy and now they’re taking it away just because they want her to fit in with the rest of the princesses. THE WHOLE POINT OF THE FILM AND THE CHARACTER WAS THAT SHE DOESN’T HAVE TO CONFORM TO OTHER PEOPLE’S EXPECTATIONS OF HER BUT THAT SHE CAN BE A STRONG, CONFIDENT AND STILL FEMININEYOUNG WOMAN ON. HER. OWN. TERMS.
And Disney’s gone and spit on all of that.
It’s not even the people who drew and designed her that want it, there are so many interviews and inside opinions where people specifically state that they hate what they’re doing to the characters with the redesigns, and that they keep trying to tone them down or keep them closer to the spirit of the originals. But marketing or whatever other crappy departments Disney have breathing down their necks forbid them from doing so and insist that no, make them look more ridiculous more horrible because this is Disney we don’t care about children growing up with healthy views on women all we care about is money and we’re sure this will get us lots of it omg so much money all the money leT’S EMBRACE THE MISOGYNY BECAUSE IT’LL GIVE US MORE CASH THAN WE KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH.
It’s not even just me, there is petition going around for people to sign asking Disney to stop and change Merida back because no this is wrong this is disgusting and i am in literal tears right now i cant handle this shit.
its like boys are the oscars and im leonardo dicaprio
yeah, you deserve them.
that’s the most inspiring thing i have ever seen

One time a duck fell down my chimney and my mom and me went to open the door to let it out but when we came back the duck was gone and we haven’t seen it since
