why is Ursula shunned from King Triton’s society? does it have something to do with being more powerful than him? why does King Triton have a magical trident, being otherwise a pretty regular merman? Ursula is a witch, if anyone should have a magical artifact it should be her, did King Triton steal it?
and finally, Ursula didn’t do Ariel much wrong
Ariel wanted some legs (and a vagina) and Ursula told her flat out that in the surface world you can have a vagina or a voice, not both
i’d watch the hell out of a movie about Ursula
“Ursula told her flat out that in the surface world you can have a vagina or a voice, not both”
ohhhh shit though, ursula was being too real about the world
although perhaps a bit too literal
Okay, these were all excellent points and I’ll never see The Little Mermaid the same way again.
I laughed at that caption at first then the reality actually hit me
you can have a vagina or a voice, not both”
Bruh… Little mermaid was deep.
Ursula gave the game to Ariel:
"The men up there don’t like a lot of blather.
They think a girl who gossips is a boor.
And on land it’s much preferred for ladies not to say a word,
and she who holds her tongue gets a man.”
Literally the whole song “Poor Unfortunate Souls” was Ursula asking Ariel if she was sure that was the kind of life she wanted. She told Ariel EXACTLY what to expect and exactly what would happen should she fail to uphold her end of the bargain. Ursula was 100% honest with her. Ariel STILL said yes because she was naive.
And notice Eric wasn’t too distraught about Ariel not having a voice during their time together? After he got over the initial shock, he was like “Okay, cool, I’LL do all the talking and you just look pretty.”
Can we get a whole line-up of movies about our villains, though? I really am more interested in their backstories than anything.
As long as George Lucas isn’t involved, I’m down.
But honestly, they should seriously stop to have this important things said by the villains, because now we understand and we relate, but when we are little the world IS black and white and the heroine is always right. Ursula was the villain. Anything she said and did was morally wrong, technically.
Insects actually have no importance of any kind in food webs and all that. If there were no insects on earth we would all be better off and there would be no repercussions whatsoever. want more proof? mars doesn’t have insects and it is doing fine. it’s red but it’s fine
Wrong. They have no importance in euro-american food webs.
sex education at its finest
"so do tampons make girls feel like they’re having sex all the time?"
"It’s every month?"
"I thought it just lasted a couple years"
"It can go for 5 days in a row?!?!"
"Why don’t guys uteruses shed?"
*upon seeing a pad* “Why did someone flatten this tampon?”
A friend’s boyfriend thought we all had periods on the same day. Like, every third monday of the month, ALL WOMEN IN THE WORLD HAD PERIODS.
In her cover essay on silencing women in the October 2014 issue of Harper’s, Rebecca Solnit once again proves that she is one of our era’s greatest essayist – further evidence here and here. (via explore-blog)
When I was maybe four, certainly no older than five, I knew the story of Pandora back and forth. I was in my twenties before I knew Cassandra as well. In fact, I can’t think of any piece of Greek mythology featuring a woman as well-known in mainstream America as Pandora and the Box.
This says even more about the culture than the prevalence of The Boy Who Cried Wolf.
it’s even more interesting when one remembers that she was given the gift of prophecy by Apollo, who wanted her in his bed, and then cursed her with never being believed when she refused to sleep with him.
The original myth said that Cassandra was a priestess to Apollo himself and thus sworn to chastity; this was the main reason she refused to sleep with him. Later versions switched to “she said yes at first to have the gift of prophecy and later said no so she was cursed”. Which, again, says an awful lot about how much this myth is relevant to our society.
Oh dear god what have I done…
