ok so i love steven’s universe for a lot of reasons, but I just noticed something:

everyone who watches the show knows that Rose is seen as beautiful, and elegant and likely the most attractive character in the show.  

But then we also see stuff like:

image

Mayor Dewy thinking Pearl is beautiful, and even calling her “hot”

image

Jamie thinking Garnet is literally the most beautiful thing he’s ever seen.

image

Stevonie, a non-binary but mostly female appearing character, being seen as very attractive by multiple other characters, and Sadie finding her attractive instead of being catty. 

image

Then we have these two. Saphire is a tiny blue one eyed ice smurf and is also seen as beautiful. Ruby is a tiny red angry square with almost no traditionally female characteristics and is also seen as attractive enough to find true love. 

image

Vedalia even says Greg is hot. A+ body positivity despite gender and body type. 

What I haven’t seen EVER in Steven’s Universe though is any of the characters being portrayed as ugly or physically unappealing to anyone. Fat characters get body positivity, skinny characters get body positivity, curvy characters get body positivity, tiny characters get body positivity. You know what else? No two characters have the same body type just like real life. It teaches you that there are endless different ways to look and still be beautiful. 

No one gets left out. No one gets called ugly. The only “bad” characters arn’t bad because of the way they look, but the way they act. Fat characters are never seen as ugly because they are fat. 

This is so important for little kids to see. 

And I know the counter argument to children being taught that it’s “ok” to be fat will always be “well being fat is unhealthy and they should feel bad about being fat so that they will work on loosing weight”. But guess what, that kind of thing leads to eating disorders, and kills children’s self esteem, and makes them hate their bodies. Some people do need to loose weight if it actually does affect their health but a lot of the time they really don’t, or they can’t for whatever reason. Some people feel more comfortable being on the heavier side. But even if you are concerned for a person’s health, the stress and depression that comes along with having a poor image of yourself is much more unhealthy and limiting than a little belly fat. 

 It also shows you that the Gems choose their appearance, which is also supper important. Pearl, and Lapis choose to be skinny, Amethyst and Rose choose to be fat, Garnet chooses to be a giant curvy square, and all of those things are completely accepted and ok. 

Love yourself.

Deerinwater pointed to Capital Pride sponsor Wells Fargo’s involvement in the Dakota Access Pipeline, which spawned protests from the Standing Rock Sioux and allies, as one reason for concern, ‘Wells Fargo is one of the primary financial backers of the Dakota Access Pipeline,” she said. “As an indigenous person and as a queer person, I cannot understand why Capital Pride would work with an organization that is actively causing harm to our community members.”    ~Indigenous Resistance: Crushing Colonialism

“The ideas that only gay, lesbian, and transgender people would work at an LGBTQ organization and that only straight women marry men are both rooted in bi-erasure.”

Ask Anna: I thought I was bisexual, but am I actually a lesbian?

bisexual-community:

We accept that a person can enjoy cake and pie (and ice cream and macarons, whoever those people are), yet, it’s harder for us to accept a view of sexuality as expansive … Basically, our desires can incorporate far more options if only we’d allow it.

However, we do live in a culture that seeks to dismiss, downplay and deny bisexuality.

I’m wondering if you are (perhaps unconsciously) feeling this pressure to “pick a side already!” As a bisexual+ in a long-term relationship with a woman, I am quite familiar with this pressure, as well as the many struggles and stereotypes that the bisexual+ label is yoked to.

Rather than ask yourself “Am I really bi+ or really a lesbian?” I suggest you work on accepting the complex and contradictory parts of yourself—to revel in them. Because those tensions and ambiguities are what define the complex topography of you. And life, generally.
