"Of course there aren’t any gay characters in animated movies! THEY’RE FOR KIDS!"
Yeah! Kids’ movies are supposed to be innoc-
Because telling kids that they can love whoever they want is TOO TERRIFYING AND CONFUSING. But showing them murder, execution, death, frightening images, war, and bullying is just fine.
SO MANY PEOPLE JUST REBLOGGED THIS FROM ME AND I HONESTLY CANT
one person reblogged this from me and I’m already crying. (Thank you)
Just bc a person on the internet made a joke about cishets doesn’t mean you’re being oppressed and don’t you even dare try to claim that cisphobia and heterophobia exist bc that mainly serves to delegitimize all the struggles that comes from being trans* or queer and to paint the oppressors as the victims which is not and will never be okay
of course not but its still not very nice
- Fan: If you could spend a day with your character, where would you take them and what would you do?
- Jared: I’ll let you start.
- Jensen: I would probably take him to a really cool beer bar and sit down and order a nice pie and say “dude, tell me some of your stories.” because Dean has definitely lived a much more different life than Jensen has lived. So, that’s what I would say. [to Jared] HAH! Beat that!
- Jared: I would take Sam to that very same beer bar and throw peanuts at Jensen and Dean.
If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also
This specifically refers to a hand striking the side of a person’s face, tells quite a different story when placed in it’s proper historical context. In Jesus’s time, striking someone of a lower class ( a servant) with the back of the hand was used to assert authority and dominance. If the persecuted person “turned the other cheek,” the discipliner was faced with a dilemma. The left hand was used for unclean purposes, so a back-hand strike on the opposite cheek would not be performed. Another alternative would be a slap with the open hand as a challenge or to punch the person, but this was seen as a statement of equality. Thus, by turning the other cheek the persecuted was in effect putting an end to the behavior or if the slapping continued the person would lawfully be deemed equal and have to be released as a servant/slave.
THAT makes a lot more sense, now, thank you.
