Also where do I sign up to get my smug mommy opinion card? Then I shall comment on everything you do and shame you for not regarding my children in your life choices.
I cannot wait to drop my kids at daycare at the crack of dawn when I have shit all to do that day and leave them there for 12+ hours.
Fuck you school board and rec centres for not closing this morning. You made us all come to work and now we have to drive home in this awful dangerous mess.

The number of “get me out of here” tactics women have developed and shared to help each other escape from overly-insistent-to-borderline-predatory dudes in public places should probably be enough evidence of the existence of rape culture all on its own.
someone changes gender specific words in a song to fit them. Just sing the song as it was written.
Disney Fans Makeover Newest Disney Princess
After the unveiling of images of Disney’s latest lead, Elsa the Snow Queen in the upcoming Frozen, fans decided to make her over. Elsa, per Disney’s usual whitewashing (other lead character Anna is also very white), falls in line with their usual fair skinnned, light hair, blue eyes and a glamorous but impractical gown.
I know this article is old but since the release of the movie I still see this sort of talk everywhere in the fandom.
- “Anna is also very white”
They’re sisters. Of course they are both white. They didn’t have mixed-race couples in that time, and even if there were a few, society certainly wouldn’t allow a mixed-race couple as royalty.
- "Typical fair skinned"
Tiana, Jasmine, Esmerelda and Pocahontas are all Disney princesses with dark skin.
- "Light hair"
Snow White, Mulan, Belle, Tiana, Jasmine, Pocahontas, Megara and Esmerelda all do not have light hair. Light hair is not “typical” in the princesses as stated by this article (which expresses views that, like I said, I see a lot of).
- “Blue eyes”
All of the princesses I’ve already mentioned don’t have blue eyes, with the addition of Rapunzel.
Why are people complaining about a white princess? There is already a lot of racial diversity in the other princesses, plus, it’s set in Scandinavia. No one complained about the lack of white people in Aladdin, because it was set in the Middle East. No one complained about the lack of white people in Mulan, because it’s set in China. So people should not be complaining about the lack of dark-skinned people in Frozen, because it’s set in Norway. Fair skin, light hair and blue eyes are the most common genetic traits of Scandinavian people.
The creators of Frozen are not “White-washing”; the people complaining about Frozen are white-shaming, which is an equally valid form of racism as all the others.
