THAT IS SO CUTE. OH NO.
Eagleton, Terry, Why Marx Was Right (Yale University Press, 2011) p.5 (via fuckyeahdialectics)
And this is why I get pissed off when.. I talk about equality, and someone says “YOU WANT EVERYONE TO BE THE SAME”. No, that’s not how it works, and I’m sick of explaining it.
The people who react to steps towards a greater equality shouting about “TRUE EQUALITY” would see someone thrashing about in the water off the side of a ship, grab a life preserver, and carefully divide it into enough pieces for everyone present to have one.
Or more likely, simply hang onto the life preserver that they already had, under the logic that since it’s impossible to distribute the life preserver equally, it would be unfair to take it away, and that the person in the water isn’t being asked to give up anything.
Because let’s be honest, objections rooted in “true equality” are 90% about preserving the status quo.
You know, I don’t think I’ve ever heard anybody suggest that toilet paper or paper towels in public bathrooms shouldn’t be free. We’d consider it outrageous if that very basic necessity were to be missing, or provided only for purchase.

That third gif also sums up the reason why so many queer women in fiction get treated like shit and why we barely get acknowledged as existing at all
These pathetic excuses for writers have no idea how to write a woman who doesn’t want to fuck a man

Kirikou and the Sorceress is a story inspired by West African folklore that tells the story of Kirikou, a boy who was born with the ability to walk and talk, who saves his people from an evil witch. The film was popular enough to spawn sequels and a stage adaptation.

But the animated short films are just as glorious. Here’s a compilation of a bunch of short films and I can link you to others as well.
Sorry for the long answer but I just really love French animation.
