i shouldnt be laughing as hard as i am
Jada Pinkett-Smith is aware of the critics that frown up their noses at the way she raises her daughter, Willow. Willow cuts, dyes and styles her hair as she pleases, a fact that bothers many who feel girls shouldn’t have that much control over their appearance at such a young age.
Jada decided to address the criticism in a Facebook post:
“A letter to a friend…This subject is old but I have never answered it in its entirety. And even with this post it will remain incomplete. The question why I would LET Willow cut her hair. First the LET must be challenged. This is a world where women, girls are constantly reminded that they don’t belong to themselves; that their bodies are not their own, nor their power or self determination. I made a promise to endow my little girl with the power to always know that her body, spirit and her mind are HER domain. Willow cut her hair because her beauty, her value, her worth is not measured by the length of her hair. It’s also a statement that claims that even little girls have the RIGHT to own themselves and should not be a slave to even their mother’s deepest insecurities, hopes and desires. Even little girls should not be a slave to the preconceived ideas of what a culture believes a little girl should be.”
I’m pretty sure I’ve reblogged this before but seriously this is something we should be teaching all our children. Their bodies are theirs, not ours as parents. As soon as you tell someone their body doesn’t belong to theirs you take away so much from them.
Ah, I’m actually really excited about this!
She’s at boarding school now, and when I called the place a few days ago they said she’s learning a lot of the commands consistently!
She comes back to us after the first week of faire.
I’ll actually be talking to AJ tomorrow about how to go about bringing her (even though she’ll still be “in training” and not certified).
We’ll even have our own tent, so if need be we can keep her in there most of the day.
I haven’t asked the boarding school to send me pics yet, so I don’t have any recent ones, sorry.
TO ACTIVATE HIS SHIELD POWERS STEVEN NEEDS TO CLOSE HIS EYES LIKE HIS MUM DOES IN ALL HER PICTURES.
Maybe she keeps her eyes closed to protect people….
Like she got her rad cannon thing going on but maybe shes got a shield too… and she activates it by closing her eyes…
She opens her eyes to fight physically????
i love steven universe because there’s really gorgeous scenes and backgrounds like this and it’s just amazing
and then there are these really fun little screencaps where everything’s just bonk
and my personal favorite
After seeing the picture of the old-timey Gems, I thought to myself, but what if at some point in their history they were samurai Gems? Maybe they kept balance between mortals and youkai (gem monster youkai?)
Also gave me an excuse to loosen up and do some more gestural brush pen sketching in an attempt at Hokusai brush sketch style.
