CURRENTLY ON INDEFINITE HIATUS
Very much feel that I’ll make a comeback on this blog during the summer. But for right now, I’m focusing on studying up for my AP exams. Wish me luck! :)
Just watched Captain America 2! Ahhh! Super inspired by it, and very emotional after. Nobody lied when they said it was the best Marvel movie so far, they really did outdo themselves! Also, props for Pulp Fiction Easter eggs and two end credit scenes!!!
So I just watched Divergent (great film, y’all need to see it if you haven’t), but as I sat there, waiting for the previews to end and the movie to begin, I couldn’t help but marvel at the mere fact that yet another novel was adapted into a movie. It filled me with joy but also with fear of the unknown. I couldn’t help but torment myself with the thought that hey, maybe I can write a wonderful novel that becomes popular, and maybe even so popular it becomes a film. And since I’m in a very transitional stage in my life (brought on by yet another existential crisis last week), it’s really been tormenting me.
But regardless, I just felt like sharing. Love you all, and I hope Loki and I may come back soon.
Lot’s of love! <3
A 14 year-old boy was recently raped at knife-point by a 20 year-old woman. When the story broke, it was primarily men who claimed he should have enjoyed it. It was feminists who validated his pain and spoke in support of him.
This is why we need feminism.”
This look is exactly how the fuck I feel lately.
Coriolanus may have just come back from battle, but even the thought of his mother standing behind him was startling. Shows what a strong impression she had on her son. [x]
I think I’ve posted about this before, but I can never get over how amazing “Out of the Box” actually was. If you’re looking for a truly feminist children’s show, this is my #1 recommendation.
For starters, the two main characters (who are seen in the gif) are both from marginalised groups but are not stereotypes even a little bit. And as I recall, there was even an episode where they both shared their culture with the children is a positive light.
Secondly, the show is very anti-classist. The premise of the show is that the two main characters are taking care of the children after school until their parents get home from work. They do things such as arts and crafts, and rely heavily on cheap products that can usually be found around the home.
Thirdly, the show was pretty progressive when it came to gender roles and gender expression. As I recall, there was one episode in which the children wanted to do a play about a princess and a dragon. They decided to make puppets by drawing on lunch bags with markers. One of the children, who appeared to be a cis girl, declared that she wanted to be a strong and scary dragon. Another one of the children, who appeared to be a cis boy, declared that he wanted to be a beautiful princess. There was no shaming for this, and no talk about “proper gender roles”. Instead, the two main characters simply applauded the children for the creativity and helped them create their puppets.
I actually might watch all of the episode again one day (if I can find them) and create a full list of reasons why people should watch Out of the Box. But for now, I’ll just leave you with the episodes that I remember.
