"A great love is a lot like a good memory. When it’s there, and you know it’s there, but it’s just out of your reach, it can be all that you think about. You can focus on it, and try to force it, but the more you do, the more you seem to push it away. But if you’re patient, and you hold still, then maybe… Just maybe… It will come to you"
Can’t express how true this is, and I know some will rigorously dispute this but you can’t argue the numbers and the facts on the plate. This picture isn’t just one comparison because truth is, it’s clearly the case when you begin doing your research on teen suicide specifically. I also don’t mean this as disrespect to Amanda Todd as suicide is horrible but it’s means of making a point to the complete hypocrisy that is shrouded heavily in today’s society. Pretty white teenage girl commits suicide, everyone falls head over knees crying, on the other end of the spectrum, societies idea of an ugly “boy” or “girl” commits suicide and no one seems to give a shit. If you want to go ahead and defend humanity, do it by all means. I’m not stopping you but I do ask you to look around at the world you live in and realize that it’s an EXTREMELY superficial and materialistic world we live in and when you boil it down to the essence, humanity as of this moment is vastly lacking. So by all means defend humanity but please DO NOT defend yourself out of personal greed because this isn’t about ONE person, it’s about the MAJORITY. I highly doubt that once this boy committed suicide many people stopped to say “aw I would have been his friend”, “aw he’s an angel”, “aw he’s amazing” instead they closed their eyes and accepted information fed by corporate cock sucking media because it’s easier that way apparently and the good few people that did send their heartfelt messages out to anyone that’s fallen victim to bullycide, why not look out for that “ugly, weird, looking” kid sitting alone in a corner that’s held under the label of a “Pariah”, muster up a bit of courage and possibly eat lunch and talk to him or her. That alone could honestly save someones LIFE literally and I’m talking from personal experience because that’s something I never had the privilege of having in real life; A FRIEND.
One Person can save someones life not just figuratively but LITERALLY. Whatever end of the spectrum it be at the end of the day, just go out there and actually talk to someone that’s about to hurt himself/herself or someone else. I think every life regardless of outward appearance is equal and it’s about time people started understanding that. The worst thing is being outcast or bullied for something you can’t control, everyone needs a FRIEND, everyone deserves a CHANCE at life.
Anyhow everyone makes mistakes and I hope they both rest in peace as well as other victims of suicide and victims of school shootings that had possible correlation to bullying (Columbine,Virginia Tech so on). Bullying can have devastating effects and drive people to do crazy things, hope this STOPS some day. Fuck people that drive others to a point of no return
Edit: sorry if it came out the wrong way but as I said Amanda Todd’s suicide was terrible and everyone makes mistakes and I’m DEFINITELY not saying she deserved it. All I’m saying is that the guy should have an equal amount of acknowledgment as she did in terms of media broadcast over the internet, the news etc. I apologize for the picture as it’s the only one I could find on Google.
What the fuck? Whitewashing? It’s a danish fairy tale! You can’t just throw in diversity for the sake of it. It has to make sense, thats like if people were like “Why are there only Chinese people in Mulan?” Because it takes place in fucking China before anyone immigrated there!
"typical light hair, fair skinned, blue eyes" The only other Disney princesses that fits that description all the way would be Cinderella and Aurora. The only other one close is Rapunzel. Disney does extremely well with making the animated princesses fit the time period and area they are from. Let me show you a thing.
Alright this is Snow White. The whole reason this is her name is because her skin was as white as the fucking snow. She had hair as black as a raven. And lips as red as a rose. Snow White was originally a GERMAN fairytale. Ya know what color they are in Germany? White….
Now this bitch right here is Cinderella. This movie was made in 1950. Ya know what was going on in 1950? Segregation. So I doubt that in 1950 they would make some black fairytale princess considering Walt Disney was white and all the employees at Disney were white, and I’m sorry but in the 1950’s all the white people were racists. Yes, Walt Disney was fucking racist. But that’s because of when he grew up and how things were. He was actually a pretty loving and kind man and I’m sure that he would’ve had an open mind to ending segregation if he had grew up different. FYI Cinderella is French. French people be white.
This chick right here. Her name is Aurora. Her movie was made in 1969. There were still racist little bastards then. But ya know what, she’s also freaking French. And in her original fairytale her hair was the color of sunshine gold, and lips that shamed the red red rose.
Now meet Ariel. She is often times many people’s favorite cause she’s fun and quirky and her hair looks like a fucking fire truck. Her fairytale is Danish. Danish people are white. The Danish fairytale though? It’s actually based off of stories sailors told of seeing this girl with bright red hair and the tail of a fish. Idk, but have you ever seen a naturally red headed black woman. Cause I haven’t….
Now Belle here is the frenchiest of the French. Her story is actually based in France. Not just a nice fairytale that was made in France. Again, French people are white. But you see light hair on her. No. She is brunette! And she has brown eyes. Nuff said.
Now this…. this is Jasmine. She is not white, she does not have light hair, and she does not have light eyes. She is brown. And beautifully so. And she’s not so sweet and fragile either. She is independent and don’t need no man.She is Arabic and she looks like it. I don’t see any white washing here. See this is where white washing would ACTUALLY come into play. If they made Princess Jasmine, based off of Princess Badroulbadour from an Arabic folk tale, and made her white. A white girl in Agrabah. Nope.
My personal favorite. Pocahontas. Again. No white washing. She is nice and brown, and has nice Indian features. Thing about her? She was a real lady. In fact her sequel actually told her story better than the first one.
Meet mulan. She’s Chinese. She saved China. Nuff said.
This lovely lady is Tiana. She made a lot of ground as being the first black Disney Princess. She was from New Orleans. She’s american. This movie was based in the 1920’s and they did her right because she was a waitress, working 3 jobs just to make a few dollars a day. She lived in the slums/the ghetto with all the other colored folk. They kept it right to the time period they were representing but they also made her fa-boo!
Now this chicky is my girl punzy. She is the first Disney Princess since 1991 that was white. I think 20 years time is a good amount of time to bring in another white Princess. Disney had wanted to do Rapunzel for a long time. She’s one of the classic fairytale princesses. Everyone know who this chick was, but there was no Disney movie about her. The reason why they didn’t she make her movie in the 90’s was because she was white. She was just another, golden haired, fair skinned, damsel in distress. I am soooo happy they waited on this one too. Cause after being in the works for so long they took this story about a chick with long hair being rescued by a Prince, and they made her this barefoot, rebellious, bad-ass, sweetheart, that was magical and already a Princess. In fact her “prince” wasn’t a prince. He was a thief. And the coolest thing, so that she wasn’t just a typical blonde princess, they cut off her hair and it turned brown. So now she’s this edgy but sweet brunette, short-haired, girl. Also, the original fairytale is German, so Disney stayed true to it’s roots and kept her in a German setting.
This is Princess Merida. She is Scottish. Technically white. But still not just some American accent, blonde, white girl. She made a big leap in the Princess world because unlike all the others who are all strong too, she didn’t even find love in the movie. Who knows, maybe they’ll make a sequel a few years later where she’s older and more grown up and she gets married. Fun fact, Brave is loosely based around Scottish folklore of King Fergus.
So yeah, white washing would be if they made the beautiful ethnic ladies here just white. Alot of fairytales come from mainly white countries. Disney is just trying to tell a good story. Maybe they should look more into some Arabic fairytales, maybe some African ones. But all they’re doing is staying true to stories and lands.
I love you.
and can i add one last thing. we are talking about a snow queen. SNOW! which color has it again? brown?
This is a fun chemical reaction that often goes under the name of elephant toothpaste, obviously because it looks like giant toothpaste.
This is a pretty cool reaction because it only requires hydrogen peroxide (H2O2,) yeast dissolved in water and dish soap. And bam “toothpaste”
The great thing is the only byproducts are water, soap and oxygen. Clean up is easy, no harmful toxins. Great for showing kids and adults alike the wonders of chemistry!
his face is just FUCK YES I LOVE THIS SCIENCE SHIT
A lobster is smarter than me.
that’s a mantis shrimp
and it is definitely smarter than me
can you imagine it being just like FUCK ALL THESE MIXED UP COLORS.
i love how to tosses it out the reef after it accomplished it
