Happiness can be found even in the darkest of places, if only one remembers to turn on the light.
I can vividly remember when I was kid how much I loved the old cartoons, Bugs Bunny and Tom and Jerry were my favorite to be specific. I can also remember that when I was around 8 or 9 years-old I realized for myself how open and blatantly racist those cartoons were. My family didn’t sugarcoat racism for me so they explained to me that the cartoons were were but I was too young to understand, So when I finally got it, I ran and told my parents, my older brothers, and all my friends Lol, I was in shock.
As you learn about how the media is ran and their intentions it makes sense. A lot of these cartoons and the companies that created them were founded in the early 1900’s by Racists in a Overtly racist America. The goal was as it still is to depict Black People in a negative way. Black Face and negative stereotyping different races was very popular in newspapers, magazines, plays, and eventually TV. Merrie Melodies, Disney, and Hanna Barbera are just some of the companies that depicted Black characters in their cartoons as ignorant slaves, they had exaggerated Lips and eyes with cheap clothing and poor speech. They even referred to them as “Tarbabies” and spoke to them like stereotypical slaves. “The Censored 11” are 11 of the most racist cartoons that were pulled from air as time went on.
It’s just a reality of the world we live in. We must educate our children about themselves and do not sugarcoat everything so that they will be prepared to deal with the real world. Keep in mind that some of these companies still exist and are currently producing major films and TV shows right now, Don’t forget what they were founded on and be mindful of what they are showing us.

freud, like most cis men, thought his dick was so important that all of our unconcious desires were based around it
My emotional life: dialectic between craving for privacy and need to submerge myself in a passionate relationship to another.
girls aren’t “easy”, girls don’t have difficulty levels. some girls like sex and some girls don’t. you aren’t winning anything by getting either of them to sleep with you.
Some girls only want sex after emotional closeness develops, but to call this “difficulty” says some really disturbing shit about what you think emotional closeness is for.
