#this is not an exaggeration okay #children do say this #children do wonder why they can’t find themselves in the media #don’t fucking tell me it doesn’t matter #it matters so much #children NEED to see themselves represented #or else they grow up feeling inferior and not worthy
but that kid never even said that on that episode
Dude one of my favorite Green laterns is black, dont even. And what about Frozone, in the incredibles? Im a trans woman and I knew since I was 8; I never once uttered, why are none of them trans?
Partly why,was cause there are trans Heros. And I found them. Just Batman was much more awesome and Thrilling for me- A good character will make you love them (no matter what. Also, if I may dare to say,
this list is long…One of the more Notable is a Teen titan- Cyborg.
Its not anyones fualt all the good Names and powers were well written for white” Heros in the 50’s. Those classic heros will always overshadow the rest, simply cause they are the simplest idea of superhero. SOoo sorry superman is white, but its too late to make An icon for anyone at that level. So I guess youll have to settle for some of the best written characters ever, who wont get as much fame simply cause theyre Not the Hulk/spiderman/batman/ or Superman. And no one owes you one anyway, cause black Superheros exist, youre just not into comics enough to find them and read them. thats ethical laziness, blaming society for a problem you could fix right now. by watching teen titans (hell the DVDs are pretty cheap)
Ethiopian girl guarded from gang rape & assault by three lions.
“The girl had been taken by seven men who wanted to force her to marry one of them. She was beaten repeatedly. Then the lions chased off her captors. The three lions guarded her for about half a day. They stood guard until we found her and then they just left her like a gift and went back into the forest.”
Then, Stuart Williams (the local wildlife ‘expert’) suggests that perhaps the lions mistook the 12 year old girl’s cries for a lion cub. Which seems awfully silly, considering that lions are perfectly capable of telling apart the gazelles they eat from their own cubs, aren’t they?
if fuckin lions know that rape is bad then so should you
