L’Oreal Tea & Crumpets with water decals from the Born Pretty Store.  I love how delicate these water decals look. They also came off really easily, you didn’t have to soak them long at all - I like that! The direct link to order the decals is below.  Get 10% off your Born Pretty Store order if you use code DPX31.

IMPORTANT FACTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

JUST BECAUSE UR FRIEND’S PARENTS SEEM NICE WHEN YOU MEET THEM DOES NOT MEAN THEY ARE NICE PEOPLE B/C YOU DO NOT SEE WHAT HAPPENS BEHIND CLOSED DOORS!!!!!!!!!

SO IF FRIEND TELLS…

No, that makes a lot of sense. I especially want to thank you for your suggestions about to handle such situations in future.

I do want to clarify that I’m not so much talking about saying something like “they love you; I’m sure they didn’t mean it” as I am of making reassuring comtextual reminders about what else could be affecting the person’s behavior, while still acknowledging how not okay it was and validating (this seems a bad word to use but I cant think of the right one) your right to be hurt by it.

and what I’m really talking about here, I suppose, is the more off-the-cuff out-of-nature type behavior (like when our mutual friend snapped at you that one time?) otherwise, I tend to not say very much at all, for fear of offending someone.

but regardless, you’re absolutely right in that there are potemtially much higher stakes at play and that I need to be careful. I’m certainly going to try.

on a related note, I have one friend I always regret telling anything about my family because she’ll bring it up again and again for years like it’s the funniest shit ever.

like, yes, I know my parents’ relationship is fucked up and my mom is neurotic, okay. this does not need to be the thing you announce every time I mention anything slightly related in passing. stop reducing them to negative one-liners.

…you know, after thinking about it, I can’t remember a single time someone’s complained to me about their parents where it wasn’t obviously fucked up and un-okay(except for my brothers) which says something important probably but I don’t know what.

Conceal, don’t feel. Don’t let them know.

"[With Elsa, it] definitely was intentional to show anxiety and depression." - JENNIFER LEE (x)

THIS IS ONE OF THE REASONS THIS MOVIE IS SO IMPORTANT. 

Like yes, I agree with the major criticisms going around tumblr re: racism and heteronormativity and not enough major female characters YES, they’re all valid points.  I just don’t understand the bloodlust towards Frozen more than, say, Tangled.  These issues aren’t unique to this movie; they’re widespread societal problems and that leaks into our media.  It can still be a good/enjoyable movie.  I see you SJWers enjoying Aladdin at the same time and that shit’s racist as hell.  Just because something has problematic elements doesn’t make it bad.

BUT THIS CHARACTER IS SO FUCKING IMPORTANT.  Because little girls are obsessed with her, they’re latching on to her.  Little girls love Elsa.  And she’s a Disney Princess with major neuroses.  (I know this is Anna’s story but Elsa’s more popular.)  And it shows a main female character with major anxiety and depression issues, and it shows her as a powerful, strong, loving person around those issues, and it shows her as an incredibly positive character. 

A lot of people are saying that the story would’ve been better if Elsa’d been the antagonist, and she was originally intended to be until that changed in development.  And you know what, it’s for the best because she’s a protagonist with mental issues.  It’s easy and common to give those to a villain.  Villains are twisted and they hurt people because they’re not Good People.  Disney Princesses might not be perfect but they’re damn close to it and their faults are charming and cute and not crippling.  Elsa’s issues and her failure to deal with them are crippling.

So many teens and adults have identified with her issues, and seeing them portrayed in a positive and beloved character is so fucking important, because children see that not just scary weirdos have mental issues.  Elsa hurts people because of her issues.  She doesn’t mean to but she hurts her parents and sister and kingdom and strangers, emotionally and physically.  And she’s a Good Guy.  Not only is she a Good Guy, she’s a Disney Princess.  They’re not supposed to hurt people — except oh maybe hurt feelings because they were following their dreams or something saccharine like that.

And she makes a series of bad choices, selfish choices, because she can’t deal with her issues.  Just like real people.  She’s not a bad person because she makes bad choices stemming from her neuroses.  Little kids see someone who’s awesome! with anxiety and depression and they see that she’s more than just her issues, and she’s deserving of love

This needs to be reblogged by everyone in existence. 

Coming out of weeks of no posts to reblog this because afsjaljfa the sheer joy of this being canon. Sheer. Deep. Overwhelming. Joy.

(I just got an ask about this and I’ll go into greater depth asap Breanna, ilu, but lemme just reblog this flawlessness first.)

There are some big-time issues in Frozen with appropriation and representation and all of those things, absolutely, but there is also a mentally ill Disney fucking princess. And mentally ill persons are one group that is never ever discussed anywhere unless we’re treating the schizophrenic interpreter at Mandela’s funeral like a sideshow, or discussing the rare person whose mental health issues made them dangerous after treatment was likely ignored for years, or deciding that everyone is responsible enough to wave a gun around until they have a diagnosis because clearly PWMI aren’t way way more likely to be victims of violent crime than perpetrators.

They aren’t far more likely to be locked up or attacked for fear of being dangerous, which makes them increasingly entrenched in the damaging parts of their disorders, which distracts from the real sick people in this world who would exploit them - does this sound familiar, people who’ve seen the film?

You want to know why this movie is important? Because almost no one on this site is addressing Elsa as mentally ill, they are not even considering it as a possibility, they’re not even seeing it as something that’s possible. I am all for her being gay (or bi!) (and/or ace!) but people are thoroughly eager to both view her struggle as a metaphor for being queer, and say it’s not explicit enough to be the queer princess everyone deserves. And no, probably not.

But she’s the mentally ill QUEEN nobody even knows we NEED.

As a side note, I’ve heard that this is also why Demi Lovato was chosen to sing the pop version of Let It Go, as she’s also mentally ill. She is bipolar and has had major depression before.

As for why people are being hard on this movie in particular, it’s because of the dumb things the animators have said, as well as the fact that The Snow Queen had more women and people of color than Frozendoes.

Otherwise, I agree completely.
