"Your magic, love."
No husband. No daughter. You don’t know what to do with yourself.

This scene is SO important. Maleficent is with someone she trusts, someone she considers a friend. And then the next thing she knows, she wakes up in pain, bleeding, with her wings burned off. A huge part of her has been destroyed.
Rape is so prominent in our culture that it is in a Disney movie. Maybe not explicitly, but it is very clear what this scene represents and it is so sad.
Normally I hate adding comments to posts but considering Angelina Jolie is very involved in women’s rights and works overseas to bring awareness to sexual assault/rape/etc, I’m betting she did this intentionally to highlight it. I think she had a lot of control over this movie.
such a needed campaign. i wish they’d have included native americans as well, though, as cultural appropriation of them in costumes is just as awfully common.
It’s that time of year again when these go around. And I will keep reblogging them. And if I see the joke ones I am likely to rip them apart with prejudice.
I will reblog this every year and unfollow anyone who posts joke fandom spinoffs of this very serious and important commentary.
