Hi I'm Gloria! Welcome to my humble blog.
I don't know how to write descriptions so pretend I'm a charming, clever individual.

learn more?

I have the roommate from hell. So I have to get rid of my cat and I have been trying pretty hard to find somewhere to go but today she is saying that if I can’t find him a home tonight then she is gonna “Take him for a drive” And that just really worries me and I just have no idea what to do with this sweet cat. So if any of you guys live in Columbus Ohio area and would like the sweetest cat in the world please send me a message.

#this is not an exaggeration okay #children do say this #children do wonder why they can’t find themselves in the media #don’t fucking tell me it doesn’t matter #it matters so much #children NEED to see themselves represented #or else they grow up feeling inferior and not worthy

okay, story time: i’m a resident actor a children’s theatre company, and we just did peter pan. i was cast as peter because i’m the only one who looks young enough to play the part; but aside from looking young, i look nothing like peter pan. he’s this little white boy with reddish brown hair and i’m an arab/hispanic queer with black hair and freckles. 

our company has a really devoted following, and these kids are reeeally young. after every show, we do autographs as the characters and have to keep up the act, because to a lot of these really young kids, we are who we pretend to be on stage. that terrified me. i’ve done autograph sessions in-character before, but never as such a well-loved character. who, again, is white. i was worried about what children might say.

over the course of the production, we must have performed for close to 500 kids, between the shows we did for families and the shows we did for school field trips.

and i distinctly remember one little white girl who came up to me with a DVD copy of disney’s peter pan, and she had this adorable tinkerbell dress on, and she just stared at me wide-eyed and after a while she said “i have all your movies!!”

first of all, if you don’t think that’s the cutest thing ever, please leave.

and when i asked her what she wanted me to sign, she handed me her DVD and said “by your face.” and she points right at this little white redheaded peter pan with pointy ears who is clearly not me, as if she can’t tell the difference… or she can, and she doesn’t care. similar things happened with different children, but it never lost its charm for me. on the contrary, it really warmed my heart.

by that same token there were many children of color who were affected by seeing a brown peter pan. a lot of them (usually older children) and/or their parents ask me how i got into acting, and if i had any advice for how to get into it. it meant a lot to me that there’s this whole generation of children of color who are going to pursue the arts, because even though i live in a very diverse area, our theatre landscape is still very whitewashed.

anyway, what i’m trying to say isn’t just that representation matters, which it does. what i’m also trying to say is that one less white face in the crowd isn’t going to hurt anyone. i feel like i’ve heard time and again that white people can only identify with white characters, and the whole point of my story is that that’s obviously not true. that kind of behavior, where people only empathize with characters who look like them, has to be taught. and that kind of behavior is racism.

bolding is mine, because that last bit really knocked it out of the park for me

Is it a coincidence that “ace” means both “asexual” and “totally cool” I think not

Anonymous sent: i doubt you actually looked up the pluto thing because yes it is actually a fucking planet now lol

mitsumurata:

rofl noooo it’s not and i doubt YOU actually looked it up

what were your sources? those two links in the big long celebratory post about it?

because L O fucking L those sources STRAIGHT UP SAY that pluto’s planetary status was recently a subject of a public opinion poll, not a legitimate NASA ruling.

pluto’s planetary status was discussed during a public attendance debate at the harvard school of astronomy. the audience of this lecture was given an opinion poll: should pluto be a planet? the audience voted yes.

in case you weren’t aware, opinion polls are not in fact proof of concrete changes in anything. it’s just an opinion poll. nothing more.

did you spend at least two entire seconds looking at this on google? because if so you would’ve seen all this information for yourself and wouldn’t come crying to me about it.

BEHOLD YOUR OWN SOURCES WHICH YOU DID NOT APPARENTLY READ USED AS EVIDENCE AGAINST YOUR SHODDY RESEARCH:

People Have Voted: Pluto Is A Planet! (TIME) — the people have voted! and the result of their public opinion poll does not in fact tell the IAU or NASA what to do.

Is Pluto A Planet? The Votes Are In (Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics) — the actual harvard coverage of the debate, which again, is only a public opinion and does not override the IAU’s ruling.

Pluto’s A Planet, According to a New Public Debate (ScienceAlert) — i’m just gonna point out that “according to a public debate” is actually part of the fucking title and leave it at that.

when in doubt, read the wiki. pluto is still a dwarf planet.

sorry, nerds.

punchline: much as the IAU knows the general public would like pluto to be a planet, it is still not a fucking planet.

VIVA LA PLUTO
