You’re one in a million. That means there are 320 of you in the United States. Find yourself. Start an army. Overthrow the government of a small midwestern town. Run shit.
Whites riot over pumpkins in NH and Twitter turns it into epic lesson about Ferguson, aka The Best of #PumpkinFest, PT 1. #staywoke
in this week’s episode of shit black folks would get murdered or jailed with no trial for
designing and animating a diverse cast of women is hard
translation: we’re afraid to make women look different and “ugly” by giving them emotions that aren’t cutesy and cuddly because that would give people the idea that they’re human and not dolls to sell for Disney profit

This right here. This is why we need to make this movie a commercial success even if some of us find the story formulaic. If it underperforms or outright fails, it might be a long time before we see a film like it again. If it all.
Please watch it please
The last movie i remember with a Mexican protag that was animated was Los tres caballeros from 1987
And even THAT doesn’t really count
see that’s actually total bullshit. there’s even nielsen research from 2012 that demonstrated that though the hispanic population of the u.s. was 18%; hispanic americans made up 25% of the movie going population. this is despite the fact that hispanic characters get only 4.2% of speaking roles, and hispanic women are more likely to appear in hypersexualised portrayals than women of any other race (x).
i have a theory that the reason for the gaping diversity gap (which is at its worst in film) is because (apart from the narrower focus on protagonists, who tend to be from socially privileged groups anyway); the vast majority of media outlets are controlled by socially privilege people (white, male, heterosexual, etc.,), so the shitty lack of onscreen representation relates more to people not wanting to promote those films than there not being an audience desperate for them. because clearly there are huge swathes of the movie going population which aren’t catered too despite all the tickets they may want to buy.
i’m pretty sure the people who say: “if you got this reference then congratulate yourself on being intelligent” don’t want my pity, but they damn sure have it.
the rabbits got a little damp tonight after a sudden thunderstorm, so they’re inside tonight, having a rabbit rave in the bathroom. i left the carrier up on the toilet and came in to find king max crashing around in it, while cottontail was hard at work shredding paper (this is why i usually keep their wild rumpusing safely outdoors).
