i love poetry and science, folkloric tales and odd realities, music and... stuff.
this is a collection of my obsessions.
wanna know why I need feminism? Because people think Frida is ugly because she had a unibrow.
Not feminine enough for you, asshats? Well my skinny jeans probably don’t make me masculine enough for you either.
and she created that unibrow with mascara to protest against colonial beauty standards…
Does anyone else get mad when they hear “Pocahontas doesn’t belong with the disney princesses she wasn’t even a princess.” ?
Like, ex-fucking-cuseyou, you need to learn up on your native american culture son. She was the chief’s daughter I’m pretty sure in their world that was the equivalent of a fucking princess.
To me a princess (european style) is this poor girl who’s expected to stay a bored virgin so that when she’s old enough (14 or something) her father can sell her to a foreign king for the worse political/economic reasons.
It’s true that I don’t know much about native american cultureS but was it somehow like this? real question, I’d never thought about it, but I’m willing to guess Pocahontas was *at least* a little luckier (before some colon came to abduct her, I mean). And I’m pretty sure that being a chief wasn’t a hereditary position so…
anyway… Disney is shit; being a princess must’ve been awful and they try to force the “princess” concept into cultures who were lucky enough not to have that bullshit.
They say The Bell Jar is about this woman struggling to chose between the shitty social identites a woman is offered but honestly to me it looks more like she was trying to chose between being a neo-nazi or a KKK member…
