so i’m watching some idiot show on syfy about nerd weddings
and there’s this woman going on about how she wants a GoT themed wedding
and i’m just like
are you sure
are you really sure about that
and honestly if I could pick ONE genre to have absolutely perfect racial and gender representation it would be media geared towards children because when you’re a kid you’re learning all the basics of the world and if inequality is normalized to you as a child it takes a long time to unlearn those values.
Anonymous asked: hi idk if you're the right person or not to ask abt this but im just going to anyways so my friends and i were talking the other day abt disney and its lack of POC characters and they justified it by saying that like cinderella is a german fairy tale and thus "had to be white" or that frozen was based in norway and the characters had to be white and im just like ??? how do you respond to that bc i think thats a shitty reason to justify a lack of diversity
if ice magic and talking mice get to exist so should people of color.
