Amanda, 22, Queer, Spanish, Atheist. I'm struggling to accept my body and find my voice in this crazy world. This blog is a mess, but I think it gets my message across.

Fry Song | Sung by Rebecca Sugar (Adventure Time storyboard artist)
Why did you leave me?
You created me,
So don’t you wanna see me?
Why did you make me?
If you’re not gonna take me
To get a burger and shakey?
My cursed blood is your cursed blood,
Come on back and be my bud.
I can count your visits on my fingertips.
Come back and give me presents from your business trips.
Daddy why did you father me,
If all you wanna do is bother me?
Don’t you know that I love you?
When I only wanna see more of you.
Daddy, why did you eat my fries?
I bought them, and they were mine.
But you ate them, yeah, you ate my fries.
And I cried, but you didn’t see me cry.
Do you even love me?
Well I wish you’d show it,
Because I wouldn’t know it.
What kind of dad eats his daughter’s fries?
And doesn’t even look her in the eyes?
Daddy there were tears there.
If you saw them would you even care?
how about instead of “all body types are beautiful” we say “beauty is extremely subjective and fleeting and doesn’t determine your worth and you don’t owe attractiveness to anyone so why don’t you focus on something important like being a worthwhile human being”
“I think a lot about what makes a strong female character. You know, movies and TV shows, these things have influence, my own website. So I think the question of “What makes a strong female character?”, often goes misinterpreted. And instead we get these two-dimensional superwomen, who maybe have one quality that’s played up a lot. Like, you know, a Catwoman type, or she plays her sexuality up a lot and it’s seen as power. But they’re not strong characters who happen to be female, they’re completely flat and they’re basically cardboard characters.
The problem with this is that then people expect women to be that easy to understand, and women are mad at themselves for not being that simple. When in actuality, women are complicated. Women are multifaceted. Not because women are crazy, but because people are crazy. And women happen to be people!”

“this leaves men confused and unable to pigeonhole you. What they are forced to do instead is… take you seriously.”
