hi [name of person], 

this formatting is making me uncomfortable but I have to tell you something / ask you something that is vital to my career as a student. 

I re-read and edited that sentence for an hour, but you’ll probably just glance over it for half a second.

thanks!

The trend of labeling women “crazy” is part of the culture that socializes women to go along to get along. When women are told over and over again that they’re not allowed to feel the way they feel and that they’re being “unreasonable” or “oversensitive”, they’re conditioned to not trust their own emotions. Their behavior – being assertive, even demanding or standing up for how they feel – becomes an “inconvenience” to men and they’re taught not to give offense and to consider the feelings of others before their own.

Writing ‘Red’, I was 21 and 22 and back then I think my priorities were different. My priorities were, I was very enamored by romance and the idea of that. At 24, at this point, I’m just really like, I just want to be with my friends, and I wanna make music, and I wanna play shows, and I wanna travel the world, and I want to define my life on my own terms. That’s my list of priorities now which is different than it was a couple years ago.

lately i’ve been seeing posts about people asking for more queer representation and yeah yeah hell yeah i’m all about that but some of them have been offhandedly referencing paranorman by going “one joke/reveal at the end does NOT count as representation”

and i TOTALLY AGREE but that doesn’t mean you can dismiss what laika is trying to do here. sudden proper and well-informed inclusion won’t happen overnight. this isn’t some on and off switch. this is about trying to get your foot in the door and budging the door as much as possible

you all forget just how much BACKLASH paranorman got for just ONE line and you all forget how poorly the film did in contrast with the other animated films that year. thankfully the film’s fanbase managed to spread word and DVD release finally made the film a success but i digress

it may not be proper representation but it’s a start. again, this is laika’s SECOND film. you have companies who have been around for almost a century who can barely manage to include a woman of color.

yes, this is just the start and albeit it’s a small start but damn it if it doesn’t make it super important when you think about OTHER children’s films that have done it (damn near none.)

oh, and by the way, you also forgot laika’s boxtroll commercial which featured same-sex couples so yeah laika deserves mad props

Protect Laika. I firmly believe they are going to do amazing things. (They already have, movie-wise, but inclusion-wise too, I have faith.)
