"A researcher tells the following story about her own experience of discovering the seriousness with which young children take gender stereotypes. While interviewing 3 to 6 year olds about their career aspirations, she asked each of them what they would want to be when they grew up if they were members of the opposite sex. Their responses showed that not only did most of the children choose careers that fit the stereotypes of the other gender but also that their perceptions of the limitations imposed by gender were sometimes quite extreme. One little girl confided with a sigh that her true ambition was to fly like a bird, but she could never do it because she was not a boy! One little boy put his hands on his head, sighed deeply, and said helplessly that if he were a girl he would have to grow up and be nothing (Beuf, 1974 as cited by Lips, 2008, p. 401)."

GUYS. They’re making a replica of the Mera Mera no Mi!!

This thing is supposed to be roughly the size of a cantaloupe and it’s coming in December

It looks like it opens up! See that line along the bottom? Wonder if it’s supposed to hold something, maybe like a piggy bank.

Maybe autism just hasn’t found the right person yet. Or maybe autism isn’t interested in being married. 

Okay, that sounded funnier in my head. 

On a more serious note, it really pisses me off when parents are all “ohemgee my kid has autism they’ll never get marrrrieeeeddd my life is over poor meeeee.”

Yeah, random post is random.

Alright, these are kinda adorable…

Much-MUCH better than sad, tortured, & unfortunate Wee Ones staring at the camera hopelessly. THIS might actually help THEM find homes too.

it would sure be great if ableism weren’t literally so ingrained into our society that 90% of the time when people are insulting a bigot they’ll go for the ableist slurs

"

Dissecting a character to fit a heteronormative box is sloppy and irresponsible. Bisexuals deserve to be represented in media too — not erased or straight-washed. If NBC can’t handle portraying a bisexual male character, then perhaps the network shouldn’t take on John Constantine.

Sexuality is always a part of a character — however minimal — but some sort of romantic or sexual relationship is usually a significant plot point in superhero stories. A bisexual male superhero would disrupt the hetero male template of, “hero saves damsel in distress” that we see consistently in iconic stories like Superman, Spiderman, and Captain America. But it’s 2014, and sometimes men need saving too.

There’s something particularly elusive about bisexual male characters. There is a deeply ingrained misconception that a man can’t be romantically involved with another man and still be interested in women as well. It’s centered on the idea that masculinity requires a wanting, and “getting” of women, and not men. But the depiction of Constantine in Hellblazer proves that is a false assumption.

  • 1: So, what's your preferred genre of music?
  • 2: Well, I like upbeat, catchy music mostly
  • 2: Maybe with piano
  • 2: Trumpets too
  • 2: And dramatic string and percussion crescendos, oh yeah
  • 2: Plus a vocalist with an impressive range, maybe a duet or a whole chorus, that's a winner
  • 2: Gotta connect with the lyrics too. Like, maybe a comprehensive and overarching plot through both song and album, interspersed with entertaining spoken dialogue. Maybe.
  • 2: Sort of like a musical
  • 2: It's actually exactly like a musical
  • 2: My preferred genre of music is musicals

get out your VCR’s it’s time to watch The Prince of Egypt. or you can watch it here.

please don’t watch exodus: gods and kings because it’s icky and racist. you deserve better. you deserve the prince of egypt.

May I also add that The Prince of Egypt’s accuracy has been approved by not only Christianity, but by Judaism and Islam as well! So it’s actually the most accurately told version out there!

Prince of Egypt has always been one of my favourite movies. The fact that there was an awesome animated movie about Jews also made me feel less weird about being the only Jewish kid around when I was growing up.

I know there’s that whole thing where you get similar films coming out at the same time, but lauded directors making white man films that turn biblical stories into massive battle scenes?

Twice in a year?

What the shit?

I was wondering if this sort of post had appeared yet

Thank you OP!

Seriously, I saw Dawn of the Planet of the apes and almost GAGGED when the preview for Exodus came on because ONCE AGAIN a movie is being made with generally white people. WHY ARE THEY ALL WHITE IT IS SO PATHETIC AND RACIST.
