One thing you can’t get enough of: Reading, music. There is no such thing as too much of either. I will literally become twitchy and agitated if I can’t read or listen to music, like I’m psychologically addicted to it. I have to read and listen to music for at least 2 hours a day.
One thing you hate more than anything: *flat stare* When people, who are aware of my gender identity, intentionally misgender me. No, I fucking told you about it, use the pronouns I told you to use.
Are you single? Why yes, why?
Do you have a crush on anyone right now? *mimes zipping mouth shut*
Do you flirt a lot? Uh? I…probably? I don’t actually….know. How or if I am or if someone is flirting with me. I’m really fucking oblivious.
Sweetest thing you’ve ever gotten: *laughs hysterically*
Do you believe in love at first sight? Um. The answer to that is complicated. I’m skeptical. My OTP can have love at first sight.
Do you fall in love fast? Hrrr…..another complicated answer.
Do you ever make the first move? Noooo. I’m oblivious. If I don’t think there’s reciprocated interest I’ll pine like a fucking christmas tree. (And I never think there’s reciprocated interest, so what does that tell you.)
Do you want to get married? Ergh. Complicated.
A daydreamer? Well, yes and no.
Talkative? Depends on how much I like whoever it is I’m talking to.
Energetic? HA! No.
Happy? Um. No.
Depressed? Oh, honey, sit down sometime and ask me about my ride on the mental health roller coaster.
Caring? Only for a select few.
Trustworthy? Abso-fucking-lutely. I like to think so, at least. You tell me something in confidence, I’m never gonna tell another soul.
Confident? AHAHAHAHAHA. No.
Friendly? Standoffish, I’m told.
Sarcastic? It’s a defense mechanism honed over 13 years of emotional abuse.
Dependable? Eh, that depends.
Adaptable? Ugh, that also depends.
Emotionally strong?: That…depends on what you mean. My biological family thinks I’m actually a robot because I don’t seem to process emotion/feelings normally.
Religious? I am not even going to try explaining this, so. The answer is, absolutely not.
Indecisive? I am so fucking indecisive it’s not even funny.
Outgoing? Fuck no, man. My social anxiety is so debilitating, I have a hard enough time with people I know and am close with.
Lazy? Probably, yeah. It depends, really.
Artistic? I like to think so.
Thoughtful? I try to be.
Considerate? Eh, yes and no.
Romantic? I haven’t given it much thought.
Obsessive? Oh yes.
Sincere? That depends.
"My body, my choice" only makes sense when someone else’s life isn’t at stake.
Fun fact: If my younger sister was in a car accident and desperately needed a blood transfusion to live, and I was the only person on Earth who could donate blood to save her, and even though donating blood is a relatively easy, safe, and quick procedure no one can force me to give blood. Yes, even to save the life of a fully grown person, it would be ILLEGAL to FORCE me to donate blood if I didn’t want to.
See, we have this concept called “bodily autonomy.” It’s this….cultural notion that a person’s control over their own body is above all important and must not be infringed upon.
Like, we can’t even take LIFE SAVING organs from CORPSES unless the person whose corpse it is gave consent before their death. Even corpses get bodily autonomy.
To tell people that they MUST sacrifice their bodily autonomy for 9 months against their will in an incredibly expensive, invasive, difficult process to save what YOU view as another human life (a debatable claim in the early stages of pregnancy when the VAST majority of abortions are performed) is desperately unethical. You can’t even ask people to sacrifice bodily autonomy to give up organs they aren’t using anymore after they have died.
You’re asking people who can become pregnant to accept less bodily autonomy than we grant to dead bodies.
Audrey says “fuck your gender roles”
This movie is super underrated.
Audrey is so underrated. How can you not love her?
I have a love-hate relationship with this movie.
On one hand it’s got awesome PoC characters who defy racial and gender stereotypes. It also discusses colonialism and how people tend to destroy indigenous cultures to obtain land and resources (which is why the crew ultimately decided a to pretend they never found Atlantis because they don’t want anyone else to try and destroy the culture).
But on the other hand, the whole plot is that Atlantis needs a white, cishet man to save it from extinction and for some reason he understand their culture and language better than they do.
hEY FUCK YOU OKAY
MILO WAS THE ANTITHESIS OF WHITE SAVIOR
HE WAS A NERDY USELESS LITTLE SHIT WHO WAS COWARDLY UNTIL OTHERS FORCED HIM TO ACT
HIS ONLY STRENGTHS WERE HIS MIND AND HIS ETHICS
HE WAS THE PERFECT DUDE FOR THE JOB AND THE REASON HE KNEW BETTER WAS BECAUSE HE RIGOROUSLY STUDIED TEXTS THAT HAD BEEN LOST OR DESTROYED IN ATLANTIS BECAUSE KIDA’S FATHER INTENTIONALLY LET HIS KINGDOM LAPSE INTO DECAY AND OBSCURITY
DO NOT PULL THAT WHITE SAVIOUR BULLSHIT BECAUSE MILO WAS A DAMN GOOD DUDE
Um guys. Kida was the one to save Atlantis. She was the weapon.
Milo’s deal was that he had been studying Atlantis for almost his entire life. He was able to crack and decode their language. A language which they themselves had forgotten.
Yes, he’s the one to bring Kida to that sacred area where she was triggered into her weapon mode. But, she was ultimately the one to save Atlantis.
Milo and the others just helped along.
I loved that movie because of Kida, so don’t just water it down to a male white savior trope. Especially when that goes against everything the movie did.
