ugh just grosses me out like
pseudo-progressive but actually just using gay people, once again, as a plot twist
oh you thought Disney didn’t have openly gay characters? PLOT TWIST! They did for one second and also you’d never know it if you didn’t have a conversation for someone who supposedly works at Disney and also you need to ignore the woman who could easily be their mom so it’s very open to interpretation
wow guys how did you NOT notice that super obvious inclusion!!!! Geez it’s almost like you were expecting something on par
We need to stop with these privileged statements.
"Everything happens for a reason"
"Every bump in the road is merely a lesson"
"The Universe has a plan for each and every one of us"
It’s easy to say this shit when the worst thing that happened to you in a week is you got a paper cut or had to work overtime, however to ignore the severity of some so-called “lessons”- you know, like hunger, poverty, slavery, genocide, and rape-can be really offensive.
If classifying painful life experiences as lessons is your way of coping with them, your way of hanging on and having hope, that’s fine. I just feel like we need to understand that for others, it can be extremely disturbing/insulting to insinuate that some divine being wanted your race to become slaves for some cosmic reason, or to think that the Universe wanted you to be raped. It’s really rude, let’s start reconsidering these things please.
I always get a bit bothered by things like that :/
I once talked with someone who said “that’s just the great divine teaching you to be strong”
I don’t talk with that person anymore
