I don’t usually reblog stuff like this but wow
Reblogging this because it reminds me of an incident that happened to me last year.
My roommate and I were moving out of our apartment and one of our friends was suppose to be picking us up in his van to help us move the last of our stuff, which we had in few bags and luggages. Unfortunately our friend was really late and then on top of it it started to pour raining while we were sitting on on the curb waiting for him. By the time the rain stopped a few minutes later we and all our stuff were completely soaked and mud splattered.
A few minutes later an homeless man passed us. He took us for two homeless girls, asked if we were on the street, if we were okay, and if we needed anything to eat. We told him we were fine and that we were just waiting for our friend to come get us. He obviously didn’t believe us, cautioned us to be careful, not to go anywhere with strange people even if they offer you something, asked again if we needed any help and then left.
No on else stopped. No one else asked if we were alright. The only person who asked if we needed any help was the person who needed it more than we did.
Both very popular characters. Both of these were made for kids. And yet, the evidence of how one represents and one just…doesn’t is just too obvious. But I guess it won’t ever matter because no matter what, what’s popular will be popular even when you know that it is really just a major let down that everyone buys into.
I disagree with this comparison so intensely. It fails completely to do justice to either of the shows or the characters in question. Azula and Elsa are on entirely different levels in all ways, from the nature of their disorders to motivations to causes — EVERYTHING.
Elsa’s anxiety disorder stems primarily from her fear of being unable to control her powers and hurting the people she loves as a result. The reason why she’s able to recover and function is NOT just because Anna tells her ‘I love you’ it’s because by the end of the movie she’s learned how to control her powers. She no longer has to fear them getting away from her and injuring people because now they’re under her command. Yes, Else is shown as struggle with depression, anxiety, and self-hate but those all have a root in an issue which is solved by the end of the film.
AZULA, on the other hand is a far more serious case. Just the nature of her mental disorder alone is more severe. Unlike Elsa, Azula is psychotic, sociopathic, displays signs of narcissistic personality disorder and towards the end full on psychosis in the terms of hallucinations and paranoia. And unlike Elsa, the factors which contribute to her disorder are NOT solved by the end of the show. If anything they’re made WORSE when she’s defeated by Zuko and Katara and rendered powerless. That’s why she suffers a full on psychotic break at the end of the show.
You cannot compare characters with different disorders, just like you can’t do it with real people. Some people with disorders can get better just through therapy sessions, some people need a combination of psychiatric help and medication, and some people require complete institutionalization until they can function.
You notice how Sam is dressed for running, while Steve is dressed for picking up dudes? No, it’s not just his body, it’s the fact that it’s his body in a shirt that’s *way too small for comfort*. And the way he poses!
Makes me wonder how long Steve watched Sam from afar before he thought out his flirting strategy. “I will put on my tightest shirt and chase my crush round a giant phallic symbol.”
you cant say it wasn’t effective though
