Conceal… Don’t feel…

So wait does this mean that if we took away the whole being able to produce ice thing. This movie might have been about depression?

Disney has come out and said it’s about anxiety and depression so… yeah

I know Frozen has it’s rather large flaws, but it was really nice to see a Disney character whose struggle with depression and anxiety were central to the plot.

If it appears to be about depression then it’s a stupid message. Then the takeaway of the story would be that depression and anxiety will go away because of love. No, that’s not how it works. You don’t suddenly stop feeling depressed because you realize you love your family.

The directors of the movie said that the film was about love vs. fear and NOT about depression or anxiety so I think it’s just circumstantial that it ended up that way.

Can we talk about how this fucking PBS show aimed at little kids easily talked about how anxiety is stressful but normal?

They also debunked ignorant stereotypes of foreign countries and gave an accurate and positive depiction and explanation of Asperger’s syndrome.

This episode totally helped me; there was a point when my mom would be out until 10pm which for ten-year-old me was so late so I would actually throw crumbled up paper balls in a trash can for a couple weeks until I felt better about Mom coming home.

IF YOU DON’T GET THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PANSEXUALS AND BISEXUALS THEN you’re pretty normal i mean lots of people use the definitions and words interchangeably so your confusion is valid and not at all bigoted as some might say

I wanted to relax but instead I spent this entire day crying because I am overwhelmed with everything and can’t handle anything properly.

"We will sing to you, Doctor. The universe will sing you to your sleep. This song is ending. But the story never ends."

ooooooooh i actually like this a LOT

#so many amazing men and women of colour portraying one character through the ages #why couldn’t we have this?

I find this to be REALLY dumb on numerous levels.  The reason Doctor Who is great is because of the actors, white though they were.  If you wanna go off and start your own show that’s wonderfully imaginative and highly addictive that runs for 50 years, then by all means, go ahead. 
But Doctor Who is a man, and the guy(s) who invented Doctor Who wanted it to be that way.  Re-appropriating this character isn’t constructive, it’s tearing down another human beings work and saying “This isn’t as legitimate because it’s a white dude playing this character.” 

Am I gonna get called a racist?  Probably. 
Am I a racist?  No.  Fuck you. 
The point being, someone else made Doctor Who, a bunch of white guys made Doctor Who.  It was THEIR PROJECT.  IT’S NOT YOUR VEHICLE FOR DIVERSITY.  IT’S WHATEVER THEY WANT IT TO BE.  The fact that Doctor Who is a white male is only the symptom of a problem.  People of color were not and are not properly represented in modern media.  It’s not Doctor Who’s fault he’s a white guy, but you can’t change that.  Come up with a better show, come up with a DIFFERENT SHOW. 

Politically, the idea that people would want to change a property, or desire change within a property because of the skin color of the protagonist is disgusting, come up with your own. 

How can someone be so obtuse? Is Doctor Who not a being that supposedly transcends race and gender? Portraying this character as a different crusty white man each time goes against this very principle. And yes, you are racist.

Plus the man who created Doctor Who WANTED there to be a female doctor so ayn-randroid’s statements are both racist AND wrong.

Aussie Builders surprise public with loud empowering statements in new Snickers Australia Ad.

Wait but this is fucked up. At the end of the ad, it shows the Snickers tagline which is “You aren’t you when you’re hungry.” So the point of the ad is to demonstrate that these workers “aren’t themselves” by being respectful to women.

So the ad says “Have a Snickers so that you can go back to being your disrespectful, sexist selves because we know that’s how blue-collar men are.”

Does not one see how messed up that is?

I think it’s the other way around! I think these guys have all eaten their Snickers! :)

No because the beginning of the ad says “What happens when builders aren’t themselves?” Therefore it’s saying that the empowering statements were the workers not being themselves.

Um, no it isn’t. I mean sure you could interpret it that way (you can interpret it as Christian allegory too!) but “first”? No, DIVERGENT isn’t the first SF novel or YA novel to be hinty about bisexuality.

Also, if you want some bisexual YA scifi that lays it out there because there’s no reason to go allegorical when you can reflect reality, might I suggest my duology ADAPTATION and INHERITANCE.
