After changing to fit into society, you are eventually going to want your old self back sooner or later
This. This is powerful.
Oh my god
No, fuck that.
Ariel changed her body how she wanted it because she wanted to have more for herself—she wanted to have her own life, pursue her own goals, be more than just the daughter of the king, love who she wanted, no matter how different he was.
The way Ariel changed was THE OPPOSITE OF FITTING INTO SOCIETY. THE EXACT OPPOSITE.
In the society she lived in, her actions made her completely different, isolated her from all of them.
In the end, she turns into sea foam because she chose to do what she thought she was right—because she made her own damn choices and didn’t allow herself to be controlled by the men in her life.
Of all the ‘Disney princesses’ you choose to attack, you choose Ariel? Half of them do nothing but be pretty and get saved, and you choose Ariel because she changed her body? So she could pursue a whole new world, one she dreamt of seeing?
Cinderella would never have been noticed by the prince if not for her clothes. Sleeping Beauty does nothing but be dead—err, sorry—‘sleep’ and be pretty. Snow White? Everything happens because she’s so pretty and sweet.
This piece is being heralded as supporting feminist ideas, but immediately screaming that a woman doing anything with her body is because of society, no matter what, is not feminism.
IT’S BODY POLICING.
Man, I hate seeing gorgeous art with such shitty ideas behind it.

"One time I went shopping for shirts and suits, but then I found the most beautiful pair of socks and I thought, “I just have to buy this”. So when I did, and I was at the counter, the cashier told me, “You can get another pair of socks for a half off since we’re having a special sale.” So I did, I went and got another pair of socks and then they told me, this time, that if I buy another pair of socks, I’ll get another pair of socks for free…And so I bought another socks to get another pair of socks for free and they told me again that if I buy another pair of socks, this time, they’ll let me have two pairs of socks for free. And I did. So by the end of the day, I had bought about 7 pairs of socks and no new suits or shirts. And I thought to myself, “This is my life now. Spending money on socks."

Dad: Why do you think they do that?
Girl: Because the companies who make these try to trick the girls into buying the pink stuff instead of stuff boys want to buy. [x]
that awkward moment when a child understands the harm of forcing gender roles better than most grown male politicians.
I’m surprised that I haven’t reblogged this, to be honest.
I love that last gif. She looks so frustrated. Like “Um, hello, obviously girls and boys can like anything why doesn’t anybody get that???”
Then you should have bloody spelled it JIF. I don’t care if the G stands for graphic. You have no one to blame but yourself.
I still don’t understand. ‘Graphic’ is pronounced with a hard G.
Don’t tell me you Brits pronounce THAT differently, too.
