Remember that time Disney made a live-action Cinderella adaptation with THREE WOC main characters — including Cinderella herself and Whitney Houston’s Fairy Godmother — and a Filipino Prince Charming? And they didn’t spend a single second explaining through dialogue or sly witicism why they were cast that way, and the whole movie went on like it would with white actors and actresses, and the two main relationships were interracial and it was AMAZING?
i don’t think u understand my love for brandi’s cinderella like it’s possibly the greatest movie ever
this movie was so fucking perfect
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. We’re backsliding hard from the 90s.
This is the only Cinderella movie I care about. Besides the AWESOME diverse casting, the music was also great.
This is the ONLY Cinderella
^^^^^ Was there ever another?
This movie was everything!! I loved Whitney Houston as the Fairy Godmother and Brandi was just fucking perfect as Cinderella.
I didn’t just stand up and say “Hey, I’m transgender”, I came at it in a more subtle way, and that was deliberate. When people hear the word transgender, it immediately calls forth all of the many preconceptions that are tied to that word, and I wanted to explain it to them in such a way that allowed me to get to the essence of the issue, without having to hack away at those preconceptions, right at the beginning.
This is why I prefer to say away from the terms trans, transgender, or FTM when I have to out myself.(via theotheropinion)
emotional abuse is when someone does something to hurt you, and when you express your feelings, that you’re upset, they turn it around to be something you did to hurt them and they force you to apologize for it, and your feelings, like always, are rendered invalid and silenced, forever damaging the ability to trust others with your feelings because they always are used against you.
