#WHEN IT COMES TO PORTRAYAL OF A HEALTHY LOVELY RELATIONSHIP IN AN ANIMATED FEATURE, PEOPLE SHOULD WATCH HTTYD2 AND PAY GOOD ATTENTION TO HOW BEAUTIFULLY DREAMWORKS DISPLAYS A NATURAL COUPLE AND LEARN THAT NORMAL COUPLE BODY LANGUAGE AND LITTLE GLANCES AND TOUCHES AND SHOWING HOW INTIMATE AND COMFORTABLE THEY ARE AROUND EACH OTHER AND HOW THEY HAVE PERSONAL CONVERSATIONS ABOUT FUTURE FAR OUTWEIGHS KISSING AND EYE-SCREWING AND SINGING SILLY SONGS AND CONSTANTLY TRYING TO FORCE THEIR LOVE STORY ON THE AUDIENCE BY CLICHE SCENES AND DIALOGUES AND TRYING WAY TOO HARD TO MAKE THE COUPLE BELIEVABLE EVEN THOUGH THEY HARDLY KNOW EACH OTHER PLEASE GIVE US MORE ASTRID AND HICCUP

You know what doesn’t happen in this movie?  (SPOILERS) They don’t break up.  They have an entire movie with a plot that features a couple in a healthy, supportive, loving relationship, and there’s action, tension, and conflict galore.  But, like, none of it revolves around the characters’ love life.

This. We need more stories like this. Where the drama is about a couple going through tough times and working together, without the drama being ABOUT THE RELATIONSHIP.
No U.R.S.T., no “we can never be together”, where the story doesn’t end or revolve around them getting together or married. People are woefully unprepared for what happens after, when the high drama is gone.
The casual affection, the planning, the talking things out - this is what we need to see in our love stories.

*cough cough* DC Comics take note.  *cough cough*

    Anonymous said: Towards the whole "pronouns hurt people's feelings" topic. Am I REALLY the only person on the planet that thinks people are becoming far to sensative? Nearly to the point that they shouldn't leave their little home bubbles in the case that a bird chirps next to them in a way that sounds like a mean word. Maybe, JUST MAYBE, we're becoming a little TOO coddling and people need to learn to deal with simplistic shit like words. And yes, I've been insulted and made fun of. I got over it. So can you.

    thefrogman:

    Supposedly invented by the Chinese, there is an ancient form of torture that is nothing more than cold, tiny drops falling upon a person’s forehead. 

    On its own, a single drop is nothing. It falls upon the brow making a tiny splash. It doesn’t hurt. No real harm comes from it. 

    In multitudes, the drops are still fairly harmless. Other than a damp forehead, there really is no cause for concern. 

    The key to the torture is being restrained. You cannot move. You must feel each drop. You have lost all control over stopping these drops of water from splashing on your forehead. 

    It still doesn’t seem like that big of a deal. But person after person, time and time again—would completely unravel psychologically. They all had a breaking point where each drop turned into a horror. Building and building until all sense of sanity was completely lost. 

    "It was just a joke, quit being so sensitive."

    "They used the wrong pronoun, big deal."

    "So your parents don’t understand, it could be worse."

    Day after day. Drop after drop. It builds up. A single instance on its own is no big deal. A few drops, not a problem. But when you are restrained, when you cannot escape the drops, when it is unending—these drops can be agony. 

    People aren’t sensitive because they can’t take a joke. Because they can’t take being misgendered one time. Because they lack a thick skin. 

    People are sensitive because the drops are unending and they have no escape from them. 

    You are only seeing the tiny, harmless, single drop hitting these so-called “sensitive” people. You are failing to see the thousands of drops endured before that. You are failing to see the restraints that make them inescapable.

    mainstream tumblr feminism may have many glaring faults but it has bred an army of teenage girls who understand the common ways that misogyny is reinforced in society and who know that they’re better off loving their fellow woman than fighting with her and that’s actually pretty damn revolutionary

    I have two daughters, so I’m raising two future women. Maybe! I mean, one of them might be a guy later. It’s possible. It could happen. Someday one of my daughters could be like ‘Dad, I’m really a guy’ and I’ll be like ‘Alright well let’s get you a dick, honey. We’ll get you the nicest dick in town.’

    Is it obnoxious for me to say that, if your favorite musical is Wicked or The Phantom of the Opera, then you probably haven’t seen a lot of musicals?

    Yeh, it’s a half-truth repeated enough times that people start believeing it and spreading around as the official truth faster, and regardless of any correction.

    For people who complain about how Tumblr is the worst and how DashCon exemplified the worst parts of the community, the people complaining about it sure love spreading misinformation and repeating debunked lies, which is something that annoys me more than flower crowns or fandoms.

    The two big things to take away from Mark’s post about DashCon that I really want people to get in their heads are:

    1. Reports about “Minors in the BDSM panel” were first posted 12 hours before the Panel even started, and pretty much everything you’ve been told about it is probably a lie
    2. A lot of the stuff hyped up to make it THE WORST CON EVER are things that happen a lot of cons, especially first time ones.

    New song based on “The Green Ribbon” from “In a Dark, Dark Room and Other Scary Stories.” Enjoy! Hopefully!
