can we please destroy this idea that a person has to talk to you every minute of every day to like you

texting all day is not natural

force communication all hours of the day is not natural

imo if parents dont respect their kids then they dont deserve respect from their kids. im tired of people thinking that its normal for parents to treat their children like property or like they dont have feelings. im tired of people thinking that overprotective parents arent harmful. treat your children like people because thats what they ARE

As a kid who’s Mom treated him like an adult at the age of 6, it’s amaaaaaazing.

…yeah, dunno. I was totally unexpectedly amazed with Annihilation, but I was worried about what the rest of the trilogy would be like, and this book kinda does a lot of the things I was worried about. It has a lot of good things in it (like I like that even though it’s now told from an outside perspective with more “information” it’s very insistent that that doesn’t “explain” much of anything) and I’ll read the last one (even though I’m now even more worried about it than before, the way the ending of this one seemed like it was leading up to like a tv season finale or something), but if this had been the first book I probably wouldn’t have kept reading.

Same, pretty much. Acceptance awaits me on the hold shelf today. We shall see…

yeah, I put a hold on Acceptance today, though my library’s copies are mostly still in cataloging. Be interested to know what you think of it

same to you! i’ll see if i can find something to say :)

And then I saw that Melissa Fumero had been cast as Amy Santiago on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and I felt my guts roll up into my throat and try to escape out of my mouth. Omgomgomgomg that’s it then. There’s no way in hell a major network is gonna cast two Latina actresses in such a tight ensemble show I AM SCREWED.

And then next day my agents called and told me I’d booked it.

I couldn’t believe it. I had been saying to my boyfriend the night before how there was JUST NO WAY. Normally, The Latina is a singular element of the ensemble she is working in. She’s there to provide contrast, or sexuality, or humor. Or she’s there to clean the floors and/or steal your man. There are some serious stereotypes very much alive in film and TV today, and The Latina is one of them.

Here’s the thing though. The world is changing. Slowly but surely, television is changing. The character stereotypes are changing, or being turned inside out by some fantastic writers and actors (I’m looking at you, Orange is the New Black, Scandal, and The Mindy Project). People of color are on TV playing roles that are fleshed out, complex, human. And yes, some of those characters are maids. Some are sexy heartbreakers there to steal your man. Some own BBQ joints, while some are Chiefs of Staff. Some are prisoners, and some are cops. All are real people with hopes, dreams, ambitions, fears, and all the other vast human emotions and desires…

…This is important. Because young women are watching TV, and they are getting messages about who they are in the world, who the world will allow them to be. And in big important steps, television is showing a reflection back to those young women that YOU CAN BE WHATEVER THE HELL YOU DAMN WELL PLEASE, and that two Latinas on one show is NORMAL. I think that’s a win for everybody.
