In an old house in Paris that was covered in vines…
no you don’t get it
this was my childhood
"My response to the “I am not a feminist” internet phenomenon….
First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”
But here is what I think you should know.
You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.
You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.
You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).
You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (It is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.
In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.
In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.”

Imagine if in “Frozen” when Anna’s heart finally freezes, Elsa, horror struck and filled with grief began to hold her and sing a reprise version of “Do You Want to build a Snowman.”
Cause I feel like it’d go like this:
….Yes I wanna build a snowman….
…And ride our bikes around the halls…
…It’s because I cared for you….
…I hid from you…
…And now you took the fall…..
…I wanted to protect you….
…Now look at you…
…Frozen by my own hands….
*Pauses looking at her hands*
…Yes I wanna build a snowman…
…And play outside in all the snow…
…I wanted just to hold you close….
…Open up my door…
…Because I loved you most…
…I was always lonely….
…Cause now I can finally see…
…I want to build a snowman …
…One more time Anna please……….
futurama is one of those shows that lures you in by being funny and then rips your fucking heart out
If you didn’t know the hand was her father, the squid thing her mother, her parents left her at an orphanage when she was a baby but in reality were looking out for her all her life
what makes it even sadder is the reason they left her in an orphanage. they didn’t want her to know she was a mutant. they wanted her to live a normal human life so they gave her up while they live in the sewers as mutants.
now i regret having never watched futurama
One of the many reasons futurama is my favorite show
More specifically, they didn’t want her to know she was a mutant because mutants faced incredible prejudice. Since Leela’s mutation was fairly minor compared to most—she was dubbed “the least mutated mutant ever born”—her parents figured that while she couldn’t pass for human, she could easily pass as a humanoid alien, and left a note with her written in an alien language as “proof”. They wanted to give her a life where she had opportunities and chances to move up in the world and be happy.
And when she does reconnect with them, it just becomes more and more clear that they truly do love her—that all they did was out of pure love for their daughter.
Futurama is fucking wonderful, not just as a comedy, but as a tearjerker.
*wakes up at 9* nice
*immediately falls asleep, wakes up at noon* less nice
