As a paranormal/horror blogger I can assure you these child abuse ads are the most scariest and saddest thing I’ve ever seen. Probably because things like that are happening RIGHT NOW at this very INSTANT.
And it’s horrifying but hopefully these ads bring more attention towards it.
I got these from this buzzfeed article. You can view more ads and the sources for these ads there as well.
The girl in the hands dress just completely fucked me up..
Kiki’s Delivery Service Trailer
nani was NINETEEN and such a fucking badass who was so protective of lilo and just ROLLED with aliens being a thing towards the end of the movie. #1 Disney relative of all time.
I have honestly been waiting AGES for the right gifset to express the wonderful perfection that is Nani. She is not only protective of Lilo, she respects the way Lilo’s imagination and quirkiness works.
Pudge the fish got a peanut butter sandwich every Thursday. Nani does not argue the logic of feeding him, only suggests an alternative sandwich when they are out of peanut butter. Lilo was allowed to take as many photos of whatever mundane or odd subjects as she wanted and Nani would get them developed. Nani recognized what were important habits for Lilo.
When Lilo asks for a pet lobster, Nani does not tell her that lobsters are not pets. She tells her, “We don’t have a lobster door, we have a dog door.” She makes sure the woman at the pound does not tell Lilo that “Stitch is not a real name”.
NANI SPENDS THE ENTIRE MOVIE MAKING SURE THAT LILO NEVER FEELS LIKE HER IDEAS ARE WRONG.
The only time we truly see Nani get angry with Lilo is when she is scared of Lilo being taken away. Nani spends the entire movie stressed out over taking care of her sister, trying to find a job, trying to make sure her sister has a friend, and yet she is always willing to put that extra effort, over and over again, to make sure that Lilo always believes that anything is possible.
This is a great moment because she probably *remembered* that Lilo said this once. And you know what? Shes not ending this day by letting her little sister think this is her fault. She’s not having an easy time trying to be a parent, but she knows none of this is her sisters fault, and shes not going to let her think it is.
And half of her terror of losing Lilo isnt even just losing her family; its knowing that wherever Lilo goes, they won’t know how to do these things. They won’t understand her.
What a good movie.
Casual reminder that the reason Lilo obsessively feeds the fish is because her parents died in a rainstorm and she firmly believes Pudge controls the weather. If you pay attention to the feeding sequence you will notice that storm clouds recede and dissipate, a visual narrative that confirms this.
It’s not just a habit. It’s a very real part of Lilo’s healing process and Nani understands that.
Also if you pay attention to Nani’s room you’ll notice she had surfing posters and trophies. She was very much on her way to being a pro surfer but had to give it up to become the adult Lilo needed her to be.
And not ONCE does Nani show her sister any resentment. It’s worth it to keep her family together. This is a young woman who is willing to sacrifice all of her dreams and make incredibly grown up decisions.
What I am saying is Nani is the best disney princess of all time. Disney Queen even.
Dean De Blois, ladies and gentlemen, genius director and writer of friggin’ amazing nonnormative characters, family and relationships. I may worship that man, a little bit. From Lilo and Stitch to HHTTYD, he really gives us amazing movies.
I am so sorry I took forever to replay!!! I’ve been trying to stay away from tumblr so that I can finish all the work I have to do. You’ve totally made my week by saying this. Thank you so much I really appreciate it. Especially since your blog is so amazing and always makes me smile. You’ve quickly become one of my favorite people here!!!
I’m kind of scared to take the sticker off what the heck??
Put the sticker back
three things i’ll say in awkward situations:
that would make the funniest fucking story ever. Due to a mix up at the factory, the template for incantations that was supposed to a publishing company of dark art books is sent to a feminine products factory. Girl then accidentally summons Satan with period blood. Satan gets confused because its “dead blood” and when he shows up he realizes the sacrifice was done incorrectly so he cannot take the girl’s soul but now is bound to do her bidding because oops his bad, he showed up anyway.
every woman on tumblr should have this on their dash
And every man
Look how nobody’s yelling or arguing or making things into a competition. Look how this is to straight up educate people through a different perspective. Look how effective that makes the message.
#That first quote SLAYS ME #EVERY SINGLE TIME #I see it #because it’s the exact opposite of true #Regina Mills knew how to love down to the very fiber of her being #Regina’s capacity to love was #literally figuratively and metaphorically #beaten out of her #by Rumplestiltskin and Cora and fucking Leopold #by anyone and everyone that was more invested #in the idea of what Regina should be #instead of protecting what she was #yet despite all that #Regina still held on to that ability to love #the one tiny piece of her heart that wasn’t completely corrupted #the tiny piece of her heart that adopted a baby boy #and a love that over time #erased more and more of the darkness in her heart #that helped Regina rediscover #she’s not only capable of love #but of True Love #gdi #I hate this show #and I hate Regina’s stupid face #that makes me all warm and gooey inside
#not only that but the 2nd one just fucking kills me#because ‘i remember’ i remember she’s talking about Cora#about being raised by a mother who held to tight so tight she hurt Regina#she’s talking about abuse and yes omg do I adore Regina’s capacity for love#but this right here isn’t just her capacity to love its self awareness#its acknowledging what was done to her and admitting it affected her#and instead of lashing out or getting angry or running away she’s facing it#she’s facing it and trying to be better than what was taught her and if you don’t think#that takes so much fucking strength you can get the fuck out#she’s breaking the cycle of abuse (and NO i don’t think Regina abused Henry BUt#she did make mistakes#she took actions that hurt him because she was reacting#based on years of patterns of behavior that were beaten into her)#this moment is so so powerful i hate everything this character deserved better#Lana deserves a better show race shut up you don’t even go here (racethewind10)
