Une petite anim un peu nulle un peu vite fait mais un peu rigolote faite l’année dernière. J’étais encore obsédée par les poulpes à l’époque.
An old animation I did last year (cause I forgot the drawings I wanted to post, duh, silly me). Witches are coming tomorrow!

how many times have you only said yes because you were afraid of how a man would react to your no?

This will forever be relevant.

packing to leave for my sister’s.  my parent’s place doesn’t feel like home anymore - nowhere does - and I’ve basically been using work to avoid thinking about that feeling for too long

Hugs to you. Change makes unexpected and amazing things happen.

Do not.

Don’t EVER tell a person of color that they don’t count as a (insert ethnicity) and assume that this is a compliment.

Don’t white-wash someone’s ethnicity just because they talk “proper” English or even if they grew up removed from their culture.

It angers me when people dismiss my differences. This is how white culture trains you to equally dismiss stories of POC who grew up in a different social/economic environment who are being abused or discriminated.

Somehow being raised by a white parent can get you a pass in the States. Don’t try to get me to abandon people like me just because you’ve accepted me despite my lineage.

Don’t try to make your non-white friends white. Befriend their differences, too.

I took my little brother (who falls on the autism spectrum) to see Guardians of the Galaxy and after this scene he lit up like a Christmas tree and screamed “He’s like me! He can’t do metaphors!” And for the rest of the film my brother stared at Drax in a state of rapture. 

So for the last 6 days I have heard my brother repeatedly quote all of the Drax lines from the movie verbatim (one of his talents), begin studying vocabulary test words, and tell everyone he knows that people with autism can also be superheroes.

Now I am not saying that Drax the Destroyer is, or was ever, intended to be autistic. All I am saying is that it warmed my heart to see my brother have an opportunity to identify himself with a character known for his strength, badassness, and honor. And that is pretty damn awesome. 

So while I adored Guardians of the Galaxy as a great fun loving film with cool characters I can do nothing but thank Marvel Studios and Dave Bautista for finally bringing a superhero to the screen that my little brother can relate to.

And some people think representation isn’t important.

The first superhero I ever personally Identified with was a latino X-Men character from LA named Angelo Espinoza, AKA “Skin.”
What initially struck me was that he didn’t look like your average Mexican kid. His mutation made him have grey skin. As a pale-skinned Hispanic son of a white single mother, this resonated with me, as I visually or culturally stuck out in most groups.
I know how powerful it is to identify with a character, even if the relation isn’t inherent in the source material.
Representation in popular culture does more for the burgeoning identity of a young person of color than most white peole realize. Sometimes it’s more than giving people a powerful role model. It transcends tv news and culturally-specific media. It is an admission on the part of pop (read: white) culture that you even exist.

"As per usual I sit in a theater thinking about how much more fun it would be if I were a fictional male character."

THIS IS WHY I CAN’T GET MY FRIENDS TO BE NERDS WITH ME, YOU ASSHOLES. 

And it breaks my heart.
