Things, Stuff, & Other Generalities

A blog of many faces. Random reblogs, sincerity, sarcasm, fandom, and fun, the only sure thing is that I'm not doing my homework.

This stuff too: Community, Homestuck, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Parks and Rec, funny people, cute stuff etc. etc.

A loving family.

Loved this movie.

This movie always gave me so many feels as a kid.

my favorite <3

No guys, I need to stop and talk about something in this movie and how fucking revolutionary it was; something that I haven’t seen in a movie before or since.

This is a movie about a kid who leaves her birth family.

Not a kid who find that they have a secret lineage or something that allows them to find their ‘true family’ - this is a movie about a kid whose true birth family is made up of bad people. So she gets out. And that is played as the right thing to do. She isn’t punished for it or made to feel bad about ‘abandoning her family’. There isn’t an underlying ‘but they’re your family and you have to love them’ or ‘they’re your family and they love you even if they don’t show it well or do hurtful things’ message of the kind that I see OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER in media. Matilda gets out and livess happily ever after because of it.

We need a million more movies like this to counter the metric shit ton of movies that directly counter this message.
