I was talking to my brother about women’s attitudes towards their bodies, especially regarding weight/fat, and when he said “most guys don’t notice/care about that kind of thing,” I tried to explain why it was a lot more complicated than that. I ended up telling this story.
Body image is something that’s so hard to talk about, and it’s hard to express body positivity without sounding cheesy, false, or overly simplistic. But I’m gonna try. This is only my own experience, and it didn’t magically cure me of all my body image issues - but it was a major turning point for me nonetheless.
But how about a Disney Princess who comes from a divorced and broken family? About her going back and forth between kingdoms and getting depressed and that sort of thing. And like one parents is trying to make her bad, and another good. And she just wants to run away, and does? Maybe. Idk.
Divorce is so common, unfortunately, and I feel like kids don’t really get any help or anyone to relate to. There are so many bad outcomes from divorce to and it seems to go unnoticed.
I understand that everyone is human and therefore not perfect, but if you’re a parent and have brought a kid into this world, they have to come first. Parents don’t have the right to be selfish. If you wanted to be selfish, don’t have kids, don’t even have pets.
Omg! This is the greatest idea! I would relate as I’m from a broken family
It’s after 1 AM and I just came across this trailer I couldn’t wait to post, so rather than posting it this afternoon, I’m going to spew my admiration now.
The Boxtrolls is a new film by Laika, the incredible stop-motion studio that brought you ParaNorman and Coraline. Those two films are amazing pieces of work, providing brilliant storytelling and terrific craftsmanship.
This here’s the teaser trailer for their newest film, The Boxtrolls. It’s not coming out until September of 2014, but it’s based off of Alan Snow’s children’s novel, Here Be Monsters. Voices are being provided by two of my favorite people of all time, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, and also features Tracy Morgan, Elle Fanning, Ben Kingsley, Jared Harris, Tracy Morgan, and Toni Collette. If that doesn’t get you pumped for next year, I honestly don’t know what will.
I’ll be religiously following updates to this film until its release, so be on the lookout for Boxtrolls spam within the next year.
