not offending people on tumblr is really hard
OH MY GOD
NOT EVERYONE ON TUMBLR GETS OFFENDED ALL THE TIME
this speaks to me on a spiritual level
2013 is the first year since 1987 to have different numbers
what about 1982
SEASON 2 STARTS 9TH OF APRIL
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH MY GOD
lower me gently to the floor, then unhand me
the year is 2050. the rolling stones are touring america. a jar full of dust that used to be mick jagger is wheeled out onto the stage, placed in front of a microphone. there is no sound. additional jars of dust are brought out to join the jar of mick jagger dust. there are literally 4 jars of dust sitting in a line on a stage. the audience paid $500 dollars for these tickets. 3 hours of silence.
Guess what I got in the mail today
Cosmo, you sexist piece of shit.
Oh boo. There’s Wanda, his wife, grinning evilly in the background as he’s saying it.
Besides, context is important. Remember what this episode was? "Queen for a Day." The one with Trixie Tang’s birthday?
The entire point of Wanda hitting Timmy with this wish was to teach a moral to him. Timmy was hitting a mental roadblock trying to come up with a birthday present for Trixie, not having a clue what “a girl” would want for her birthday. Cue the wish forcing him into a female body and… Still pretty much liking the exact same stuff. And as he later found out, Trixie liked the same things he did, even if gender norms didn’t fit for it all.
In the end, Timmy ends up giving Trixie the present she wanted in a comic book store, but fakes getting upset over it when he gives it to her because her friends thought it was only for boys. But, she WAS grateful.
And this moment? This right here? Our male protagonist, Timmy, is now getting playfully mocked by Cosmo for suddenly being a girl. That’s going to teach boys, through the eyes of Timmy, how stupid it is to be demeaning to females for being female.
This episode was basically a giant slap in the face to the idea of gender norms. And you’re still calling Cosmo sexist for reinforcing the moral, which is how stupid even casual sexism is?
Childhood is firmly not ruined, thank you.
