I RMEMEBER LAUGHIGN SO FUCKIGN HARD WHEN I SAW THIS
you’ll never guess what I ship the most in gekkan shoujo nozaki-kun…
Anybody else remember this episode? In it, a female villain called Femme Fatale is stealing millions of dollars in Susan B. Anthony coins. Naturally, the Powerpuff Girls go to stop her. She then convinces them that men are all horrible because female superheroes aren’t as well known as male superheroes, even asking Blossom to name some to where her only answer is Wonder Woman.
They start acting bitter, refusing to do chores when the Professor asks and even telling the Mayor to save the town himself. Ms. Bellum and Ms. Keane talk to the girls and basically explain that being mean to guys won’t do anything and that isn’t the kind of message feminists should put out.
They proceed to beat up Femme Fatale while giving her a history lesson about Susan B. Anthony, the story where she voted and was found guilty because women couldn’t vote back then, but when the judge wanted to let her off easily because she was a woman, she forced them to take her to jail. The girls handle her and the lesson is that misandry will not stop misogny and we all should just respect each other.
And it fell on Tumblr’s deaf ears.
Ugh. Sad but true.
I will reblog this shit purely for the above stated sad truth. Cartoons and animation have had time honored lessons that we learned as kids. And as we got older we abandoned a lot of those old thoughts and ideals to keep up with the times, trends, and relevancy of the world. But we learned these lessons as kids. We already played together on the playgrounds, we had sleep ins at the community centers, we attended birthday parties for our classmates. Gender, race, religion. That stuff barely mattered to a 5th grader. Now it’s everything that separates us as young adults, students, workers. We’re people, god dammit. We should be treated fairly and treat others fairly even if we’re not winning or on top.
"Do unto others as you would want others to do to you." That golden rule you all learned in 1st grade or from your parents. It goes a long way no matter where you go~
I don’t really understand how that is a question up for discussion on television news. I mean, even putting aside the gajillion ways that white people are privileged by, for instance, being able to think that whiteness is “normal,” studying world history from Eurocentric perspectives, and etc etc:
- Marijuana use is similar among black and white populations in the U.S., but young African Americans are more than THREE TIMES more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession or use than white Americans.
- Even after accounting for reasons like education disparity, geographical distribution, and occupation, there is a persistent wage gap: White people make are paid more than African Americans due to racial discrimination.
White privilege is a fact of every facet of American life. I realize I’m mostly preaching to the choir here, but this is not a political issue or a subject for debate. It is well-documented and irrefutable.
Oh my gosh.
