Anonymous said: I was surpeised to see that you criticise gender roles AND are a practicing catholic. Guess I was the close-minded one! I'm not religious but after looking through your blog I find you and your attitude very inspiring! <3
It’s not close minded, our assumptions of others are usually just made from impressions others have left, even if sometimes its false. Most Catholics I know personally wouldn’t be bothered if their girls were into boys things, and their boys into girls things. People like what they like, its all a matter of taste.
It doesn’t really bother me much if companies market items to an individual group of persons like Barbie’s to girls for example. I understand that by supply and demand most kids that like Barbie’s are female, but it doesn’t make you “girly” if you’re a boy who plays with Barbie’s. I’m not offended as the intention is to bring in money, not create social stigmas.
I think traditional roles fit for many people and that’s wonderful if that is your calling, but if you feel called to a non traditional role in life that’s wonderful too. I myself feel called to a more traditional role. We are individuals, we are gifted with a set of strengths and born with weaknesses. Most devout Catholics believe their lives are lived as a path to sainthood. I believe it is absolutely possible for a man (as one example) to attain his sainthood by being a stay at home father, or a woman by being the “bread winner”. I believe that’s why we have thousands of examples of Saints, to see the many ways we can bring glory to God.
I do find it strange that in our society today a woman is more accepted into any “male role” and that makes them a “cool chick”, but any man in a “woman’s role” and there “must be something wrong with him.” As women we can wear boys jeans, hunt, play sports or other “male” things, but if a man wanted to wear a dress- well something’s wrong there.
I believe no matter what a person expresses outwardly we can’t really know their heart, only God can see that. My parish priest often says to assume the best in others like we do for ourselves, that’s something I always try to apply in my life.
The Hebrew name for God (יהוה) is closely linked to their word for “existence” and contains letters that are just breathing noises, and if you don’t think that’s the coolest thing ever then you’re probably not into theology or linguistics, and that’s kinda disappointing but I’ll let it slide.
This is from That’s So Raven, where Chelsea and Raven apply to work at the same clothing shop. Chelsea is white; Raven is black. Chelsea gets the job, despite being utterly horrible at it, while Raven, who has a deep interest in fashion and knows how to handle clothes, does not. The girls find this deeply suspicious, so Chelsea wears a hat with a camera on it and questions the employer. The employer admits what she does in the gif above and Chelsea and Raven submit the footage to a news station.
And THAT is why That’s So Raven is the best TV show ever.
That’s not even the only reason why it was the best show ever
This was back when Disney channel had amazing shows with good lessons, not this stupid “Dog with a Blog” shit they have going on now
Je veut être une bonne éleve et sais beaucoup de français, mais je ne sais pas beaucoup de français. Je pense que je serais échoue mon examen pour IB. J’ai besoin de étudier, parce que l’examen est mois prochain!
When I first got this role I just cried like a baby because I was like, “Wow, next Halloween, I’m gonna open the door and there’s gonna be a little kid dressed as the Falcon.” That’s the thing that always gets me. I feel like everybody deserves that. I feel like there should be a Latino superhero. Scarlett [Johansson] does great representation for all the other girls, but there should be a Wonder Woman movie. I don’t care if they make 20 bucks, if there’s a movie you’re gonna lose money on, make it Wonder Woman. You know what I mean, ’cause little girls deserve that. There’s so many of these little people out here doing awful things for money in the world of being famous. And little girls see that. They should have the opposite spectrum of that to look up to.
