"If you are not angry you are either a stone or too sick to be angry. You should be angry.

Now, mind you, there’s a difference. You must not be bitter; bitterness is like cancer. It eats upon the host and does not do anything to the object of its displeasure.

You said angry. Yes. You write it. You paint it. You dance it. You march it. You vote it. You do everything about it. You talk it. Never stop talking it”

- Maya Angelou in conversation with Dave Chappelle

"This is why it’s dangerous to make anybody seem larger than life. A young person coming up sees this larger than life figure—this outrageously gigantic personality and has to say ‘I can never be that. I can never do that.’ When the truth is, those men and women were just in the right place at the right time. They caught hold of something and something caught hold of them." - Maya Angelou at 18:00

"Respectability politics restricts us from doing things just because we are told it’s ‘not respectable’ to do this. That, this kind of womyn will never get a job, will never have a man, will never be respected by her community. And why not? If we are her community, can’t we choose to respect her? Can’t you choose to respect me still as an individual?"

Kim Katrin Milan on body policing & respectability politics.

“If you die of cancer that does not mean that you ‘lose to cancer.’ You beat cancer by how you live, why you live, and in the manner in which you live. So live, live, and fight like hell—and when you get too tired, lay down and rest… and let someone else continue the fight for you.” - Stuart Scott accepting the Jimmy V Perseverance Award at the 2014 ESPYs

Seriously, Rugrats was not fucking around.

People don’t give Rugrats enough credit for how progressive it was. I mean think about it.

  • Chuckie, for most of the series is raised by a single father
  • Angelica’s mother was a high ranking corporate executive
  • Phil and Lil’s mom was a feminist 
  • She also breastfed them (which the show actually depicted)
  • Tommy is half-Jewish and the show actually explored this part of his heritage

Seriously, this show was fucking amazing!! They just don’t make ‘em like this anymore….

Also don’t forget that Chuckie had an interracial family after the second movie.

How are you guys forgetting Susie? I mean her mom was a doctor and her dad was a writer for a famous Children’s TV show. Not to mention Kimmie was anything BUT submissive.

Remember when they had episodes that hit hard to issues kids might be dealing with? Chuckie only had his Dad on Mothers Day, Tommy had to deal with being outshadowed by a new baby brother, Phil and Lil were constantly being mixed up and then they had a couple episodes where they each found that even as a twin they were their own people.
Man Rugrats was the shit.
