I really don’t care if they re-name Moana to Spirited. I don’t care if they did the same thing for Tangled and Brave.
If Disney thinks that’s what they need to do to convince boys to see the film, good, fine, do it.
I’d much rather have Disney make a film with a female lead kicking arse that little boys are willing to watch, than a film they refuse to see because the name makes it look like a “girl film”.
I think that’s nonsense. Why should a movie about a female character have the title changed to ‘hide’ that it’s about a female character? They didn’t do that with Robin Hood, or Aladdin, or The Lion King, or Tarzan. ‘Brave’ was originally titled ‘The Bear and the Bow’ so exactly what was ‘girly’ about that?
Why should anything about a female character be hidden so it will appeal to boys? Why are boys so important and matter so much? Why are boys the default? Why, even when a movie is about a female character, does it still need to appeal to boys? Notice how, ever since The Little Mermaid, even if a Disney animated film stars a female character, it’s overwhelmingly male. Why is maleness considered universally marketable but femaleness is only a ‘niche’?
Girls shouldn’t be diminished just so boys will think something about them is cool.
have you ever known somebody so shitty they completely ruin that first name for you?

sail boats are the easiest thing to steal ever because they don’t have a key because there is no engine. all you need is a sound knowledge of the wind and a yearning to conquer the seas

instead of traditional roleplay blogs what if people made blogs where they were literally pretending to be the character if they had a blog. like severus snape reblogging shitty friendzone posts and luna having some sort of cool aesthetic blog etc.
the worst thing about tumblr is that you read all those pro feminist/anti rape/anti misogyny posts all the time everyday and then you actually go outside and talk to a random guy and it feels like being punched in the face with a chair
but what if the gigapause is 413 days long? that puts the end of the gigapause at december 3rd, 2014
Anonymous What bothers me about Hogwart's paintings is that they're all realistc or medieval-ish and just makes me wonder what happens if a wizard paints some cubist nonsensical shit. Would it move? Would it talk? Would it ask you for the password, or would it tell you about the meanings of within? I guess we'll never know because Dumbledore is not a fan of modern art
this is a solid question
girls being kept out of the sciences and pushed into the humanities; the humanities being valued less in our society than the sciences; and the humanities and sciences being looked at as stark opposites that couldn’t possibly be enjoyed for the same reasons are all problems that need to in some degree be tackled together
