Recently, a lovely gal on tumblr posted a link to this:
About the drama that recently hit a portion of Once Upon a Time fandom. And while the article is very emotional and heavy, her thoughts brought up a few of my own on the subject, so I figured I’d share them.
I. just. can’t..
OH MY GOD THE RESEMBLANCE IS UNCANNY
wow tumblr… just wow… how dare you….
that’s totally disrespectful…
Umbrigde at least loves cats.
They’re trying to see how far hypocrisy and double standards can go. How many times they can show Rumple doing evil, yet still being loved, excused, and forgiven. How many times Regina can be mentally abused and physically assaulted and then demonized for her behavior.
But I already know the answer.
USA I’m sorry but if you let Romney get elected as President the rest of the world will have no choice but to break your section of the Earth off to float in space on its own until you come to your senses
Here’s a diagram to help you understand
I went to the mall, and a little girl called me a terrorist.
My name is Ela. I am seventeen years old. I am not Muslim, but my friend told me about her friend being discriminated against for wearing a hijab. So I decided to see the discrimination firsthand to get a better understanding of what Muslim women go through.
My friend and I pinned scarves around our heads, and then we went to the mall. Normally, vendors try to get us to buy things and ask us to sample a snack. Clerks usually ask us if we need help, tell us about sales, and smile at us. Not today. People, including vendors, clerks, and other shoppers, wouldn’t look at us. They didn’t talk to us. They acted like we didn’t exist. They didn’t want to be caught staring at us, so they didn’t look at all.
And then, in one store, a girl (who looked about four years old) asked her mom if my friend and I were terrorists. She wasn’t trying to be mean or anything. I don’t even think she could have grasped the idea of prejudice. However, her mother’s response is one I can never forgive or forget. The mother hushed her child, glared at me, and then took her daughter by the hand and led her out of the store.
All that because I put a scarf on my head. Just like that, a mother taught her little girl that being Muslim was evil. It didn’t matter that I was a nice person. All that mattered was that I looked different. That little girl may grow up and teach her children the same thing.
This experiment gave me a huge wakeup call. It lasted for only a few hours, so I can’t even begin to imagine how much prejudice Muslim girls go through every day. It reminded me of something that many people know but rarely remember: the women in hijabs are people, just like all those women out there who aren’t Muslim.
People of Tumblr, please help me spread this message. Treat Muslims, Jews, Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, Pagans, Taoists, etc., exactly the way you want to be treated, regardless of what they’re wearing or not wearing, no exceptions. Reblog this. Tell your friends. I don’t know that the world will ever totally wipe out prejudice, but we can try, one blog at a time.
this is so perfect in absolutely every single way.

Anyone else notice Mushu the dragon is Mulan’s tattoo…?
This is the coolest shit I have ever seen.
Let’s not forget this one
…this is the first time I’ve seen disney princess stuff that I’d actually want as prints. Also, part of me is glad Tiana’s not in this bunch bc there’s only so much potential to be wrong-headed about things from my cultural background I can take in a day. But if this artist actually got it? Tiana, queen of the zombies would be amazing.
anyone else notice how mulan is the avatar
except that tiana is indeed in this series and she’s the best fucking one period
actually shit they left out kida, tiana, pocahontas, rapunzel and maid marian
Disney seen through a darker lens. I love it. I can’t choose a favourite.
Reblogging for the ones left out.
This is my favorite thing on the Internet. I thought Aurora couldn’t get any better. I was wrong.
Sometimes I don’t even get how she can play Regina…
