Real life vs Societal expectations

Wow..

Yeah, news flash people, boobs generally only look “perky” while in a bra. A few are super lucky and have naturally perky boobs, most don’t. And this is because, SURPRISE, boobs are intended to feed babies and it’s hard for a baby being cradled in mum’s arm to reach a nipple that’s on the other side of the boob from where its mouth is.Think of a soda fountain machine. The spouts are all pointing down, right? So you can put soda in a cup being held under the spout? If the spout was sticking straight out, it would be really hard to get a soda out of it.Babies need to be able to reach a nipple easily so they can eat. Ergo, nipples are usually lower and angled more downward on a naturally hanging boob, both so it’s easier for a baby to reach and so gravity can do its part in pulling milk toward the nipple.So there you go, outright ANATOMICAL proof that boobs are not there for the benefit of men.

Thank you for that. I never realized. Thanks.

German Ad Doesn’t Need Words To Speak Volumes About Supporting Your Kids

Being a teenager is hard. But the German home improvement chain Hornbach knows having parents who go the extra mile to show their support can make a big difference.

The Oncoming Storm: Losing Norway, Culture, and EPCOT’s Vision

On October 5th 2014, EPCOT’s Maelstrom will close and Disney will begin to revamp the Norwegian pavilion to include the characters, music, and narrative from Frozen, last year’s hit animated film. 

I’ll put this simply, because it’s too soon to think of anything else to say: I’m angry. And I’m sad. 

World Showcase’s original intent was supposed to be so much more than another repository for Disney’s brands and intellectual property. World Showcase and all of EPCOT was created out of Disney’s once unerring ability to be a company that showcased things, and showcased things that mattered. World Showcase was a permanent (if slightly stale) World’s Fair that existed to be an exhibition of the diversity of man, uniting and captivating visitors with the beauty and drama of the human difference. World Showcase was bravely dedicated to cultures that have defined what our world civilization had done throughout time. Does this description sounds grandiose and overzealous? Good. It should. For a very long time, EPCOT Center inspired these thoughts and these feelings with the content that it had on display. Norway and Maelstrom fit this theme like a glove.

While madcap and quirky and often downright puzzling, Maelstrom at least showed off the sinew of Norwegian myths and legends and culture. Brave vikings, mystical trolls, the barren wilderness of the arctic… The idea of Norway was encapsulated in a short ride. It was a romp. It was a short experience in the “genre” of Norwegian culture. 

And now? It’ll be replaced by singing princesses that are “inspired” by the Scandinavian culture. This is a problem. Disney can not showcase culture vis-a-vis something made in their own image. Disney’s Frozen is more a reflection of Disney Animation than it is a reflection of culture. Aesthetic and narrative cues might come from Norway, but they were used to create a place called Arendale… a place that is fictional. A place based in pop culture fantasy. To show off Norway as it really is, Disney needed to extrapolate upon the underlying archetypes that existed within our collective unconscious about the place. Maelstrom already did that. Frozen will not. Frozen is a narrow narrative that uses Norwegian aesthetics and adapts one Norwegian story into a fairly enjoyable film.

Frankly, I like Frozen. I saw it in theaters, twice. But this enjoyment of it doesn’t broker any acceptable vision of EPCOT  that includes shoehorning a modern film into a space that was meant to speak to the greater aspects of culture and mythology that define an entire country. 

EPCOT, which has undergone a tumultuous trajectory over the past decade or so, is now faced with yet another thematic rift. Norway and Maelstrom now join The Seas with Nemo and Friends and Journey into your Imagination and Innoventions and other attractions that do not support a coherent and cogent vision of what EPCOT once was and should be. Some gems in the park will still exist, of course, but this is a large step in misaligning EPCOT’s focus and making the park less unique. Things like the alleyways of Morocco and Impressions of France and Living with the Land can only do so much on their own to support what EPCOT was and is supposed to be. 

EPCOT faces an oncoming storm in removing Maelstrom. I hope it can weather it. I am an optimistic person, but a loss as large as this hurts. And it even hurts to admit that. With the removal of Maelstrom and the inclusion of Norway, there is no stopping what Disney can decide to do with other original and cultural attractions. Disney is now crossing a line into synergizing what was meant to be above and beyond what could be found in a magic kingdom park, or any other Disney park.

It’s a wicked storm, indeed. It’s a maelstrom. 

Losing Maelstrom makes me so sad.

In our society today girls feel that they need to be skinny in order to find love.  Fact is, your true love is gonna love you no matter what.  If he cares about the size of your thighs more then the size of your heart…drop him my darlings as no man should make you feel bad about your size if he truly loves you <3

Reblog. Every. Single. Time.

Naw son. Fuck this entire fucking movie because it’s about these skinny ass women who are bitter as fuck because the fat girl in their group is getting married before them and they mad because “HOW THE FUCK IS THE FATTY BEING HAPPY WHILE WE ARE SKINNY AND ATTRACTIVE NOOO WOE IS MY SKINNY SELF!”

Not to mention the fact that this scene is AFTER THE SKINNY WOMEN ALMOST DESTROYED HER DRESS DUE TO THEIR PETTY ASS BULLSHIT.

AND FUCK THAT ‘I LOVE ICE CREAM’ LINE FOR REAL.

We can’t go 4 damn minutes without a trope about a fat person talking about how they love to eat

Also that Kristen’s character also refused to get her “best friend” the perfect, clean, new wedding dress after fucking up the first one because it was the dress she always wanted to get married in and refused to “let” her friend wear the dress she wanted for herself. Despite the fact that same friend helped hid her ED while they were in school and got continuous shit for it, despite absolutely destroying the dress her friend chose, despite the fact that it would completely fix EVERYTHING. And the worst part is? After the couple gets married, it shows that the dumbshit skinny friends learned NOTHING about how horrible they really are and just go off and do more drugs together. This movie was about dumbshit horrible skinny women using their one fat friend to make themselves feel better about how shitty they are because their lives were fucked, but aren’t us skinny girls supposed to be succeeding at life and fat girls supposed to be depressed and gross?!

Fuck. This. Movie.

Welp.

I literally was accosted by Jill Scott jokes (and nudes b/c fucking Twitter) and there is is something I don’t understand. Like, do people not understand how big titties work? Are there really people out there that think that most women’s large breasts just sit THAT high, as if they are permanently in a bra? I know education is rough, but we did learn what gravity is, right? Like, I’m not making that up, am I?

Now you know folks expect breasts to be perky and high always and if they aren’t then the women deserve ridicule…
