Made rebloggable by request.
Because people are awful, stupid, and scared.
People think that little boys are safer than little girls. Little boys are easier to deal with - little boys aren’t complex or hard to understand. Just give them a football and an attaboy, they’ll be fine! If they’re upset just tell them to rub some dirt in it, if they get scars tell them that chicks’ll dig it, if they get afraid or if there are tears all you have to tell them is that Big Boys Don’t Cry. Men don’t get scared, they are men, and you’re a man, aren’t you? Attaboy. Now go out there and play with your football and everything’ll be fine.
Little boys aren’t moody and mercurial and capricious little princesses who have tantrums and stamp little slippered feet and cry piteously, are they? Little boys don’t grow up to be teenagers with mood swings or uncomfortable and awkward bodily fluids and emotions and they won’t get totally overemotional or illogical like GIRLS get, right? Boys don’t have a hard time at school like girls might get - it’s not like they get teased or bullied and if they are, well they’re boys, they can take care of themselves and just sock that bully in the mouth and that’ll be the end of that. Boys don’t have fight with friends and don’t have to deal with rumors or not getting invited to parties - boys are SIMPLE. Boys just need to fight it out and then they’ll be okay. Boys’ll be boys.
But most of all, little girls grow up to be little victims. Every day there’s another girl found raped, dead, missing, assaulted, abused - girls that killed themselves because they were gang raped and nobody did anything because boys will be boys. One day you’ll have to look your little girl in the face and explain to her that people think in this world that she is worth less, that she is less intelligent, less rational, less capable to deal with anything in a reasonable manner and that and that there are Bad People Out There Who Will Do Bad Things and that’s why you can’t go out, sweetie. And that’s just Drama.
Because your little girl might one day turn into a teenager and there will be blood and tears and tampons and that’s messy and disgusting. They’ll fall in love and in lust and when they do they’ll be the town slut, they’ll get pregnant and they’ll get hurt and that’s Drama. When boys come back at 4 am that’s cause they were having a good time, let them have their freedom, darling. When girls come back at 4 am it’s Where Were You and With Who and What Will The Neighbors Think. Because girls get hurt and girls get raped and that’s Drama - but nobody thinks that’s Drama when boys hurt and boys rape. Cause that’s just boys being boys, and that ends with entire towns covering from them because one mistake shouldn’t ruin their promising lives.
Because we live in a world where it’s easier to raise men as abusers and to want to avoid having girls - so that your child isn’t the victim, somebody else’s baby is, not yours, because that would just be Drama. Because we live in a society where our safety, our struggle, our inequality, our fight and our search to build a world that will accept us, nurture us, and protect us is just plain old Drama.
is there anything more frustrating than clicking the like button on the dumbest comment on yt and not being able to unlike it. even worse that it’s a dumb comment disguised in big words sounding halfway intelligent when it’s so wrong and dumb. i was going for the dislike button brah. also why is twitterpic the worst picture host on twitter. and i’m feeling bad for my parents because i’m the most worrying kid to have. i’m sorry guys for my f-ed upness i will try to do better at not being useless
In medieval culture, an event like a royal christening is not a private party; it’s the public social event of the year. To not invite any person of rank to such an event is a deadly insult.
Maleficent is certainly someone you wouldn’t want at a party, but she’s also someone powerful enough that only a fool would ever dare treat her with such blatant disrespect. The only way the King and Queen could possibly have gotten away with not inviting Maleficent was to not invite any of the fairies at all; inviting the other fairies and excluding her is explicitly taking sides in the conflict between the fairy factions.
Which means they made themselves her sworn enemies, and she responded by treating them as such from then on. If you actually get into analyzing the social dynamics of the scene, it’s very clear that Maleficent was willing to show mercy at first by giving the King and Queen a chance to apologize for their disrespect to her. She doesn’t curse Aurora until after she gives them that chance and they throw it back in her face with further disrespect.
And yeah, if the King and Queen had done the properly respectful thing and invited her, Maleficent would have given Aurora a scary awesome present. Moreover so would the other fairies, because at that point both sides would be using it as an opportunity to show off and one-up each other. What they gave her before Maleficent showed up was basically just trivial party favors by fairy standards.
How do you know so much about the social dynamics of medieval fairies
“How do you know so much about the social dynamics of medieval fairies” — I legitimately DO NOT mean this as a criticism, but purely from a point of wonder — HOW DO YOU NOT?!
(This coming from the gentleman who listens to the radio once every 18 months, who reads zero tabloids, and has no idea what the hell is going on in pop culture at any given time)
(I think I answered my own question)
reblogging because this whole thing is perfection.
this is the best thing. I want to write that story, where they apologize, beg forgiveness last minute and she grows up to serve the dark fairy faction.
