If we think of the douchebag as a social identity as much as an accusation, as a subject with a distinctive persona locatable within the categories of race, class, gender and sexuality, then we find that the term carries a remarkably precise definition.
The douchebag is someone — overwhelmingly white, rich, heterosexual males — who insist upon, nay, demand their white male privilege in every possible set and setting.
The douchebag is always a white guy. But he is more than that. The douchebag is the demanding 1%, and the far more numerically significant class of white, heterosexist men who ape and aspire to be them. Wall Street guys are douchebags to be sure, but so is anyone looking to cash in on his white male privilege.
This narrowness of categorization — perhaps unique in the history of America’s rich history of racial and sexual slurs — is what makes the word douchebag such a potentially useful political tool.
why is Ursula shunned from King Triton’s society? does it have something to do with being more powerful than him? why does King Triton have a magical trident, being otherwise a pretty regular merman? Ursula is a witch, if anyone should have a magical artifact it should be her, did King Triton steal it?
and finally, Ursula didn’t do Ariel much wrong
Ariel wanted some legs (and a vagina) and Ursula told her flat out that in the surface world you can have a vagina or a voice, not both
i’d watch the hell out of a movie about Ursula
“Ursula told her flat out that in the surface world you can have a vagina or a voice, not both”
ohhhh shit though, ursula was being too real about the world
although perhaps a bit too literal
Okay, these were all excellent points and I’ll never see The Little Mermaid the same way again.
I laughed at that caption at first then the reality actually hit me
you can have a vagina or a voice, not both”
Tbh if they ever would make a movie of it i bet ursula would be skinny not fat because fat people can only be shown as villains.
BUT IMAGINE THAT THO
BIG OL URSALA
MAKIN HER WAY WITH GIANT HIP SWAY
Just. Dont ever tell a child that she will change her mind if she says she doesn’t want children. If she says she doesn’t want children, and if you say she will change her mind in the future, not only are you invalidating her opinion but you are also making her feel like her opinion doesn’t matter and that she is a tool to create children regardless of how she feels about it. If you don’t think thats fucked up dont talk to me.
sleeping naked is very dangerous bc if someone breaks into your house at night it would be very embarrassing to fight him off while naked
snaps of the magical journey my thigh went on today (yeah I changed dresses after I cleaned it because the seam in the one I was wearing was a little too rough and I didn’t like it) also just realized the stencil picture and the finished lines are IN THE WRONG ORDER that’s gonna bug me
We never say that all men deserve to feel beautiful. We never say that each man is beautiful in his own way. We don’t have huge campaigns aimed at young boys trying to convince them that they’re attractive, probably because we very rarely correlate a man’s worth with his appearance. The problem is that a woman’s value in this world is still very much attached to her appearance, and telling her that she should or deserves to feel beautiful does more to promote that than negate it. Telling women that they “deserve” to feel pretty plays right in to the idea that prettiness should be important to them. And having books and movies aimed at young women where every female protagonist turns out to be beautiful (whereas many of the antagonists are described in much less flattering terms) reinforces the message that beauty has some kind of morality attached to it, and that all heroines are somehow pretty.
Korra is a show for twelve year olds, a kid by any adult standard.
Believe it or not kids have a basic capability to process stressful situations as storytelling.
Stop trying to feel like you’re watching the next big Emmy-winning shit and just enjoy your kids’ show, for fuck’s sake. Nobody actually cares about whether you belong in your favorite show’s target audience or not.
I guess because people have a problem with being told media is “for kids” instead of for everyone on the grounds that its animated.
