Remember when Disney had a cute, disabled, poc mermaid?
When i was younger, one of my best friends was a deaf guyanese girl, and her fave princess was Ariel, mainly bc she related to her living without a voice (and her love of swimming)
When this episode aired, she cried and squawked and made sounds that were almost understandable… She saw herself as a mermaid, on tv, with her favourite character of all time
Representation matters, always, no matter what
I’m never going back, the past is in the past!
Holy mother of wow
you don’t go homo or bi or trans to hell
the expression is “going straight to hell”
wake up america
All those days watching from the windows. All those years outside looking in. All that time never even knowing just how blind I’ve been. At last I see the lights, and it’s like the fog has lifted.
