Be Wilde

Just an old, geeky, elder goth trying not to be too bitter with the world while clinging to the things he loves.

“Cinderella never asked for a prince. She asked for a night off and a dress.”

—

Can somebody break this down for me? Why’s it so powerful? What exactly is it saying?

Wow, this is great!  I never really thought about it this way before, but it’s actually true. And it makes me feel really bad for all the Cinderella haters out there (I know they exist, there was that one article by the mom who doesn’t like Disney Princesses and dislikes Ella most of all).

I think we’re so used to Disney girls getting a prince as part of their happy ending that we confuse this with wanting a prince from the beginning. (I know “Cinderella” is bigger than the Disney version but it’s what I am familiar with, so let’s focus on that XD)

Cinderella isn’t dreaming some impossible dream.  She wants to be treated decently and have the chance to find her own happiness.  And even in the bad situation she’s in, she does her best to be cheerful and good, because she has faith things will get better.

Cinderella is denied the status of her birth (forced to work as a servant for her stepmother and stepsisters) and mistreated, and clearly isolated from everyone else but the family (she’s making friends with mice and birds, come on).  She dreams of a better life, but she tells her animal friends that she “can’t tell” them what she’s been dreaming, because if you tell a wish it won’t come true.  Aside from this, she’s pretty practical, though.

"I know it isn’t easy," Cinderella says to her dog, knowing that he’s been dreaming of chasing her stepmother’s sadistic cat, "but at Ieast we should try to get along together."

And in fact, she doesn’t actually ask for a night off and dress. If things had gone as Ella wanted, she would have gone to the ball with her stepmother and stepsisters because she finished all her chores and updated her birth mother’s old gown to fit her.  Ella’s not asking for anything when her fairy godmother shows up — she has stopped believing in the power of dreams almost entirely at that point. 

Her godmother tells her she can’t go to the ball like this (all dressed in rags and crying), and Ella says “The ball? Oh, but I’m not—” and her godmother says of course she is.

"Even miracles take a little time."

Her godmother isn’t there to machinate things so Cinderella can marry a prince.  She’s there to restore Cinderella’s faith.

And it works.

WANDA MAXIMOFF IS NOT SOME DERRANGED CHILDLIKE CHARACTER. SHE IS A WELL ROUNDED, SENSITIVE POWERFUL WOMAN, WHO IS EMPHATIC TOWARDS ALL TYPES OF PEOPLE- META, HUMAN, X-MEN ALIKE. SHE IS A FUCKING WISE PERSON WHO LEARNS FROM HER EXPERIENCES, AND FIGURED OUT REAL FAST ABOUT HOW…

Seriously. Please don’t just look at the past decade for her characterization.

I just want to give my two cents on this and tell you a story.

A couple weeks ago, I was hired at Target. I have a job at Target. Not a big deal right?

It is a big deal because i’m a transman

It doesn’t take a genius to conclude that it’s hard for me, my brothers, and sisters to get a job. There are legal restraints regarding the job and if you don’t pass, it’s hard to be taken seriously at a job interview.

Right on the application, it asks what your preferred name is. It also asks if there is anything that target should know. I put the fact that I am a transman, expecting not to get a call because usually when you put that down, people will throw out the application. I got TWO interviews.

At the interview, they asked me about it. I told them I am on hormones and they told me that they didn’t care. Not in the sense that they don’t emotionally care, but that it didn’t matter. I was male and that’s all that mattered. They also told me that they give sex same couples benefits in states that do not recognize them as a married couple.

At my job orientation, I was not misgendered once. Even my supervisors who weren’t sure of my gender avoided pronoun use, which I found only happens when you’ve had pronoun training. They gave me a name tag with my preferred name and didn’t ask questions. I felt safe and respected, which is huge for a trans* person.

TLDR: Target is amazing not just for the LGB, but also the T. Shop there for the rest of your life.

Awesome!

wow this is awesome
