A Connecticut teenager has forced McDonalds to finally address the casual sexism that has long been a part of Happy Meals.
This impressive narrative comes courtesy of Antonia Ayres-Brown, who first approached the fast food chain five years ago when she was barely a tween. She wanted to know why the chain automatically assumes a girl will want a doll-type toy while a boy will want something more stereotypically masculine, like an action hero. In December, she finally received an answer — from the chain’s corporate office, no less.
When I first got this role I just cried like a baby because I was like, “Wow, next Halloween, I’m gonna open the door and there’s gonna be a little kid dressed as the Falcon.” That’s the thing that always gets me. I feel like everybody deserves that. I feel like there should be a Latino superhero. Scarlett [Johansson] does great representation for all the other girls, but there should be a Wonder Woman movie. I don’t care if they make 20 bucks, if there’s a movie you’re gonna lose money on, make it Wonder Woman. You know what I mean, ’cause little girls deserve that. There’s so many of these little people out here doing awful things for money in the world of being famous. And little girls see that. They should have the opposite spectrum of that to look up to.
Dreamboat, check, awesome human being, check.
one of your heroes, Han Solo, realized he was going to be friendzoned by the girl he likes and ACCEPTED it and chose not to call her a bitch, even promising to not get in their way as a couple.
Sincerely, Be Like HanHan
I think it’s the first time I see gifsets of this scene with comments that focus on how Han Solo respects Leia’s feelings instead of incest jokes. Kudos to you, tumblr user jamesfactscalvin :)
The benefit of being old: I remember the impact this scene had (and how awesome Han was) from seeing it in the theater when it came out. People wondered why we all liked the bad boy? He respected her.
Okay, so maybe it’s just the second gif, but does anyone feel like The Mummy is ripe for a Rumbelling?
Because of you, I couldn’t get The Mummy out of my head. Now I am watching it on Blu Ray.
Haha! I haven’t seen it in forever, but I’ve been Rumbelling it in my head all day. Maybe if I ever finish my existing WIPs I’ll try my hand at writing it.
I watching it with my 70 year old grandmother who just keeps asking, “I thought he was dead?” “Why does he keep changing?” “Oh! He’s killing them! Lordy, that’s gross!”
Its very entertaining.
This was one of my all time FAVORITE movies when I was young. I used to make my parents watch it over and over again. At both of their houses (which was one of only a few)
