It’s important for little girls to know not every story has to be a love story and for boys to know that soldiers aren’t the only ones to triumph in war.Guilermo Del Toro - How Pacific Rim saved his life
#227 Skarmory - Its sturdy wings look heavy, but they are actually light and hollow, allowing them to travel up to 190 mph (300 km/h). Skarmory’s steel wings become tattered and bashed in from repeated battles, but once a year the battered wings grow back completely and are restored to a pristine state. Skarmory choose to build their nests out of sharp brambles and thorns; this ensures their offspring’s safety, as not many other Pokémon can get near and their offspring’s skin will be scratched until it is hard like its parents’.
I love how the Addams Family has ZERO slut-shaming. Like… honey you can dance naked and enslave someone with your womanly charms if you want to, I don’t fucking care, but so help me you’re going to get a college education first.
The Addamses are what every family should aspire to be like (you know; without the dismemberment and electric chairs as play time). Honestly, have you ever seen more unconditionally loving and supportive parents than Gomez and Morticia? And not just with the kids, but with each other. I think what’s especially unique about them is how open they are with everything. They don’t treat their children like children. They treat them like they treat everyone else; direct, and to the point.
I HAVE to reblog this…
It’s creepy how many good examples of parenting and romantic relationships there is in these characters, especially considering they are supposed to be the antithesis of the stereotypical American nuclear family.
Thats because in reality the stereotypical American nuclear family sucked ass and had shitty values that involved conforming oneself to the norms of society and forcing men and women into gender roles. In other words the idea is actually rather abusive which is why we should never aim to be that.
Addamms family is reality. Family isn’t perfect. Its weird. Once you have a family you shouldn’t be expected to change who you are, and no member of a family should feel like they dont fit in because of some bullshit standard set up by some societal norm that doesn’t actually exist.
