tbh dress codes are fine as long as they are about looking professional and appropriate for a learning/working environment and not about ‘don’t distract the boys’ and slut-shaming, and as long as it’s enforced equally for all genders

it is the sexist attitude about it that needs to be changed, not the fact that there *is* such a thing as dress codes

FINALLY SOMEONE SAID IT!

The real story behind the war over YA novels

note-a-bear:

y’all should probably spend some time reading this

Oh my god this was supposed to be about books but it’s actually about my relationship with my parents I was unprepared for these feels

yep yep yep this

"The hot insistence on labeling YA as “trashy” and not fit for adult reading isn’t just about a visceral hatred of genre fiction. It’s also a form of denial from older adults who don’t want to engage with the issues faced by Millennials. If the validity of experiences underlying the desire to read YA can be eliminated, then older adults can feel less responsible for what they did to the generations that followed them"

This is a great, smart article, and well worth reading.  It’s also worth sharing around.

This is a great article! Even among those who are in the YA age range, there’s this belief that because YA is “trash” they have to hate it too to seem more grown up.

A few weeks ago I was at a bookstore looking through books, my friend pointed out the YA section and told me I should go look there since all I read is YA and she wasn’t nice when she said it. It annoyed me because I don’t just read YA novels, honestly I don’t even look at those labels, I look for plot and have read Children’s books, YA books and adult books because the plot intrigued me.

I walked over to the YA section anyway because I didn’t see anything that interested me in the section I’d been in and my friend started to joke about the crappy writing of YA novels and how I should branch out and read “real” books.

She said this about three more times, even when I’d moved on to a different section. Finally I told her to stop, that she shouldn’t devalue a book because of it’s label and that many of these books have female protagonists with stories I can connect too, that have real meaning and talking as if it’s beneath her makes her seem incredibly arrogant. I told her that the “cool” thing to do was to mock these books because somehow society (and the article explains this really well) decided that these stories weren’t worth telling.

She backed down after that and apologized but she didn’t fully understand why I’d gotten upset. As many people who read YA know, people will make fun of you because they think the writing is awful and that the stories have no meaning or substance. Of course this is false but no matter how many times you try to explain you’ll be dismissed.

Not all YA books are good, but that’s true for adult books too. YA has nothing to do with it’s worth, all it tells you is the age of the protagonist, that’s it. I’m glad this article was written because the stereotypes are ridiculous and need to stop.

What do you think is worse, the fact Disney took a story with an all Japanese cast, and turns almost all of them white, or the fact Disney made a movie out of a comic infamous for being horribly written and extremely racist?

evora-eriu-mclaggen:

Can I have no opinion on that matter?

We could begin the talk, but I just see no point in doing that. Disney’s always been altering stories to fit their needs and ideas, adding, changing or ignoring (more or less) the story as well as the characters, yet only recently everyone started pointing that out. Let me give you some examples:

Snow White: The Huntsman was asked to bring lungs and the liver as a proof that he killed the girl, not her heart. The Evil Queen three times changes her shape before she manages to poison the girl with an apple, and it’s not the kiss that wakes up the dead princess. Prince asked the dwarves if he could take her body with him, and when the dwarves move the coffin a piece of apple just falls out of her mouth and ta-da! She’s alive and they marry soon after.

Cinderella: When trying the shoe on, her sisters have to cut pieces of their feet off. I’d rather see that instead of their feet making anatomically impossible things inside the shoe. Or their eyes being eaten by the doves as they march in Cinderella’s wedding procession. That would have been something!

The Jungle Book: Remember when Mowgli was banished from the wolf pack? The boy then managed to kill the tiger (mind you, Shere Khan was a cripple!), and the village people shooed him off as well. Why? Weird superstitions. If I remember correctly, Mowgli fell for a girl from the village in the Disney’s adaptation? Ain’t that somewhat clishe?

The Hunchback Of Notre Dame: Don’t even get me started on that movie! Frollo was supposed to be a priest, a man of God! Phoebus was supposed to have a fiancee! Also, he and his girl were supposed to be the only people (of the main characters, obviously) that do not die in the story! Frollo, Esmeralda, Quasimodo, pffff, even Clopin are six feet under before the story ends! And where is Gringoire, I ask?

See? So many errors, so many changes, and yet none of them ever bothered any of us! We just went to see the movie to enjoy the movie! If you didn’t enjoy, you shrugged it off, and life moved on.
I don’t see Disney as a racist company. It was created by white people, and mainly for the American/European people (Whoops, sounds a bit racist to you? It shouldn’t! Just look at the movies made by Chinese or Japanese: they are mainly about Chinese and Japanese! Oh my! Are they racist too? Nope! They just focus on satisfying needs of their own people, just as any other country is focused on making money on their kin). The fact that Disney is famous does not oblige them to make movies about every nation there is. No one seemed shocked by having a German fairytale set in New Orleans, and OH MY, the German Princess was not a princess at all! She was a black waitress? How did they dare! Still, we all loved the idea, and I think it was Disney’s bow towards all the black children there are.

I’ve had enough seeing that Disney hate on my dash. 

If you don’t enjoy, just ignore and move on!
