"I never could relate to a Disney princess because there was never one that looked like me" I think its just you…

Because look at these kids. Does it look like they give a fuck about race or color? nope. These kids got it right. They just simply love a character. They relate to who the person is/represents, not what they look like.

Maybe you are the one focused on race?image

Hi! I heard you wanted to talk critically about representation and diversity. that’s awesome! Representation and diversity are super important, so I’m glad we’ve all agreed to think about this a little and not just be flippant and dismissive. Okay, ready? Let’s go!

First let’s establish that the media we consume, for good or for ill, consciously or unconsciously, influences us, our perceptions of the world and our perceptions of ourselves. We see shows like CSI and that forms our opinions and knowledge of forensics, unless we have some outside source to correct the errors. Maybe you haven’t been to the UK, but you watch a lot of BBC, and you have an idea in your head of what London is like. We don’t have the ability to know everything about the world through first-hand experience, so we gain insight through television, movies, magazines, etc.
Okay, everyone with me on that point? Are we agreed? Let’s keep going!
The people we see, then, through these movies and tv shows and magazines, can begin to influence our idea of beauty, of strength, of perfection and even of normality. Our ideals are based on the pop culture surrounding us. 
Think about issues you may have with your own body, and think about why, exactly, you feel that way. Your nose is too big - well, why? What is the right sized nose? Why do you think that? When you picture a “good” nose, whose are you thinking of, and why does yours not match that?
Or what about your toes? Do you feel self-conscious about them? Maybe your second toe is longer than your big toe, and you think that’s weird. But why do you think that? A lot of people have toes like that, and even if they didn’t, what’s wrong about it?
Then there’s the more obvious and common concerns. You’re too fat, your teeth aren’t white enough, you’ve got acne. Your body or mind doesn’t work like that. You like the wrong gender, or neither gender, or both. you don’t feel like a girl when people think you should be, or you don’t feel like a boy, or you don’t feel like either, or you feel like both. You’re not white, you’re not blonde, you’re not five foot ten with a 28 inch waist and c-cup breasts.
The people you see on tv don’t have those problems. Or when they do, they’re people like Zooey Deschanel, and hell, you’d kill to look like her, too.
The truth is there’s no right or perfect way for a person to look or be or think. But feeling imperfect makes you want to buy things to feel better and change yourself, which is really important in a world that wants you to care about money and then spend that money on endlessly trying to fix things that were never wrong with you to start with. But that’s sort of a whole other conversation. Anyway.
Small children aren’t really influenced by this. They (mostly) don’t have the self-awareness necessary, yet, to think about what they are like vs what the people in cartoons are like. 
But small children grow up.
Diversity matters, representation matters, not for the kids that will consume any cartoon you sit them in front of, but for the teenagers those kids are going to become, and the adults those teenagers will grow into.
The concept of “normal” needs to be drastically broadened. That needs to happen everywhere, but childhood is a damn good place to start.

Filed under there's literally no reason not to encourage diversity and representation except for wanting people to continue feeling like they aren't good enough like that's it that's all and if you feel that way you're basically an asshole okay? okay

Female-assigned intersex kids’ vaginal canal size is also assessed by doctors, to ensure that it’s long enough to fit a penis inside of it. Doctors might surgically construct or re-construct vaginas, which can result in a host of health problems and necessitate multiple, multiple surgeries. This is especially the case since most intersex kids have these surgeries very young, and when their bodies grow into their adult forms, more surgeries are necessary to keep their vagina size in proportion. Non-surgical methods are also used to increase or maintain vaginal length by regularly using medical dildos to stretch the vagina over months and years. (It’s kind of like braces for your vagina, but much, much worse.) Just like there are no standards for how long a clitoris “can” be before it’s classified as a penis, there aren’t absolute standards as to how long a vagina is for it to be of “normal” length.

I had a dilation procedure performed for almost every exam I had with intersex doctors from the time I was 8 until I was 16, so that they could check how long my vagina was as I grew. I absolutely hated these procedures. I mean, imagine a man as old as your father or your grandfather, who you don’t know, inserting a medical dildo into you each time you saw him, knowing that you can’t question the doctor’s orders and just accept that you have to undergo these uncomfortable procedures for your health. Imagine a decade or so later, realizing that these procedures did nothing to track your health, and had everything to do with grown men feeling good about the fact that you could fuck some dude someday like a “normal girl”. That all those traumatizing procedures weren’t actually medically relevant at all, and it actually was within my right to refuse those examinations.

I didn’t know any of that at the time.

I also had no idea that I wouldn’t want to ultimately have the kind of sex they assumed I’d be having, adding yet another layer of this-was-totally-unnecessary/messed-up to my history.

Other kids shouldn’t have to go through this. Other adults shouldn’t have revelations some day far into the future that what was happening to them WASN’T okay, and their traumatic feelings ARE valid, and the whole system of how intersex people are conceptualized and “treated” IS entirely fucked.

And it’s gotta change. We’ve gotta change it.

I just read this article and was reminded once again how invisible the intersex community often is… we need to signal boost this shit to let people know that this kind of “medical treatment” is NOT okay.

so fucking disgusting there aren’t even words for it.

(via bad-mojo)

when something qualifies as rape or sexual assault in any other context it should not become magically acceptable when doctors do it.  i don’t know why that’s such a difficult concept for people to understand.
