I want to be
the first thing you touch in the morning,
and the last thing you taste at night.

"I’ve never thought the heritage or color of the skin of the princesses mattered; Chinese or Danish or African American, or whatever. What always mattered to me was how the Disney princess acted-but hearing people complain about how they aren’t represented, it breaks my heart to hear them and it makes me feel as though they’re mad at me, as a white girl who never saw any problems with it."
That’s how it works for those in a position of privilege: your image and your experiences are the default. Because your image, your values, and your experiences are always being upheld, it’s hard for you to understand the point of view of those who are different. And while some people are humble enough to actually take out time to consider that maybe they need to expand their view. Most, however, either would deny the problem, ignore it or berate those who can point it out.
While yes, it is important that we consider the actions and motivations of the characters we’re watching. But, we must acknowledge that there is an incredibly obvious bias in the characters who are delivering these messages and the impact that it may have on different types of people.
Also, OP, please do not feel guilty that other people are seeing what you haven’t been seeing. No one is angry at you because you didn’t see the problem; that’s not your fault.
look at it like this
when a girl gets rejected, she thinks it’s something that she did or did not do, she thinks there’s something wrong with herself that would make a guy not wanna be with her
but when a guy gets rejected, he thinks there’s something wrong with the girl who rejected him, ‘she just wants to date assholes’, ‘she’s a bitch’, so on and so forth
someone finally said this thank you
