Let me rebuke respectfully. Thanks for the kindness! I am all for representation, and I generally agree I’d like more cultures to be shown. However, I do not believe Disney has to present POC characters in every movie just because to not “is racist” in the same way I don’t believe Disney has to portray Caucasian characters in every movie. I find Pocahontas to be a wonderful character, despite the entirely changed story, as she is powerful and smart and driven. She does not let racism, or romantic love, or anything else get in the way of who she is. That’s important to me. Jasmine, same traits. Personality is important, and she’s got so much of it.
Tiana is one of my favorites! Frog or not, it’s what she does in the movie, what she accomplishes, and what she represents (hard work and not ignoring chances to be happy with one’s accomplishments) that makes her such a stunning character.
Race is important, but so is character, y’know? Just my two-cents again.
“Some may disagree with this picture, but I absolutely love it. The other day my daughter and I staged a tea party with three of my most docile tarantulas. My daughter is three years old and is very cooperative. She loves her tarantulas and even joins in with the care and maintenance for these creatures. I have recently been hearing some negative comments from neighbors and friends about these mean, attack driven creatures. I decided I would take a photo that would lighten the mood about how dangerous tarantulas are assumed to be….docile unless tempted. I feel that all tarantulas should be considered “defensive” rather than “aggressive.” I hope you enjoy the picture. ”
It just goes to show you that the fear set within us of spiders isn’t entirely instinctual and is mostly taught.
omg this is great
They each get their own little cup and spoon that’s just precious!
