Angel dust gets in your eyes and hair
On acid stars you’re getting there
My body’s a temple and maybe I’ll give it to you
When you die
I’ve looked at life that way
"I can’t explain in words how much I want an open LGBT character or a character with piercings, colored hair, tattoos, etc"
okay lgbtb maybe a thing at some point but Disney is not about tattoos and piercings.
I don’t see anything wrong with Disney possibly doing a princess with tattoos and piercings. It would hopefully teach children and adults alike to not judge anyone based on modified body appearance. I think it would be wonderful to show kids that even if someone may modify themselves, they can still be a princess and that they’re allowed to whatever they want with their body and we should not judge them for it.
I get how you feel. There are still sections of the movie that I do like and even find beautiful, but I just can’t love it because it’s all a big lie. When I learned what happened to Matoaka in real life, I honestly felt so horrible. This girl who had been taken from her home at a young age to a foreign country to marry someone she never met, had her culture taken away, her name changed, and never got to live a full life (she died of small pox at age 21).
And then they turn around and make a movie about her where she’s aged up to become this fetishized Native supermodel who falls in love with a man who historically had lied about her and her culture. And they make it into this “paint with the colors of the wind”-equality message when history has shown that what happened is the exact opposite (Plus they make a man who was actually murdered by the Powhatan the villain).
Disney fandom really has on some of the biggest blinders I’ve ever seen. They think criticizing anything is going to ruin or taint it. They don’t want the truth: they want to go on worshiping this media conglomerate that gave them their “childhood”.

Someone asked us:
I love that there’s a tumblr page and all the answers are really lovely and kind and never condescending or judgmental like they might be if answered else where. I was just wondering if you could explain to me how the birth control pill actually works. I use it to…
