When people compare the greatness that is The Simpsons to other animated shows like Family Guy it makes me want to set myself on fire
I went on a date last year and jokingly said “Don’t ask me I’m just a girl” and giggled at a 35 year old man thinking he’d get the reference and instead he said “that’s what I like to hear.”
The concept of a 50/50 relationship is based on the idea that you bring equal efforts to the relationship. In a REAL relationship, sometimes your partner can only give 20% and you have to contribute 80%. In a healthy relationship, you don’t keep score, hold it over their heads, or degrade them for it because there will surely come a day when when you can only bring 20% to the table and your partner will pick up the slack.
The original story of the little mermaid is that she must kill the prince in order to be human, and in the end, she loves him too much and kills herself instead.
The artwork is too great not to reblog.
Ok, ok - important expansion: she only has to kill the Prince because the deal was if he fell in love with her she could be human forever, and he didn’t. By which I mean, he was a good person and genuinely nice to her, but he didn’t fall in love. He fell in love with someone else, also perfectly nice - not the seawitch in disguise, fu Disney. The Mermaid is told she can only return to the sea now if she kills the Prince. She goes into the room where he and his lover lie sleeping and they look so beautiful and happy together that she can’t do it.
That’s why she kills herself. And because it was a noble act she returns to sea as foam.
One moral of the story was that women shouldn’t fundamentally change who they are for love of a man, and in theory Han Christian Anderson wrote it for a ballerina with whom he fell in love. She was marrying someone else who wouldn’t let her dance.
Well shit man

"A big part of the story is lost when it becomes a movie."
a whole lot more is lost if you cut a giant ass hole through it
Feminist-a person who supports feminism.
Feminism-the advocacy of women’s rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men.
A great scene from ABC’s short-lived drama Commander in Chief starring Geena Davis.
Such a hugeeeee pet peeve of mine. If you’re going to take the time to say you are or aren’t something, take the time to be educated in it and understand it. Nothing’s worse than opinions based in ignorance.
