does anyone else literally get stressed out by how many shows they need to watch like
- "oh is the second season of that out?"
- "but i need to watch that one too-"
- "but all of my friends are telling me to watch that one"
but then you always end up rewatching your favorite show for the fiftieth time
"- Charles Clymer, “Why Are We Ashamed of Our Women Heroes?” (via dingyfeathers)
If a young woman in middle school or high school hangs up a poster of Barack Obama in her room, this is seen as acceptable. It’s fine for women to admire men and want to be like them.
If a young man (the same age) hangs up a poster of Hillary Clinton in his room, this is seen as odd (maybe even troubling, is he gay? Oh no!).
Society tells us young men can’t think of women as role models, unless they’re a family member, whereas young women can admire and seek to emulate anyone, regardless of gender.
If you’re a young man, and if you have a poster on your wall with a woman, she had better be half-naked in a bikini, even if the Ronald Reagan or Gen. Patton poster next to it obviously features the man fully-clothed.
Young men are not to taught to think of women as role models. They are taught to think of them as either family members or sexual objects. There is no other category presented."
I fucking knew it. All these funny jokes and references to other Pixar movies are nOT, as Pixar themselves insist, in-jokes and humour. Every single piece of fiction aimed at children is set in the real world and anything that doesn’t make sense in real life had an elaborate theory behind it.
