#this is not an exaggeration okay #children do say this #children do wonder why they can’t find themselves in the media #don’t fucking tell me it doesn’t matter #it matters so much #children NEED to see themselves represented #or else they grow up feeling inferior and not worthy

No I have to reblog this again cus I am crying right now look at the dads face

This is why my mother made it a point to show me and my sister how beautiful the black dolls were when she would take us to the toy store when we were little. I was the only kid in my kindergarden class who would draw pictures of people and actually color in the faces, which I vividly remember doing, but didn’t think anything of it at the time. Not all of them were of my parents either. Some were bible scenes (I went to a Catholic school) and the rest was just fictional people that I would make up stories for.

My mom told me that apparently it was so odd, that my teacher pointed it out with confusion during one of the routine parent/teacher meetings, and asked her and my father why I did that when none of the other kids did it.

I repeat, my kindergarden teacher looked at two black parents and asked with genuine confusion why their black daughter colored in the faces of people in her drawings.

This why representation matters. I wasn’t the only black kid in that class, but I was the only one coloring in the hands and faces of the people I drew, and my parents were questioned about it, as though it were some alien concept.

this post is amazing and I fully support it and everything it says

BUT

the scene in the gifs is from the pilot episode of agents of shield. the dad offers to buy him a superhero and the boy says “I’m okay”. you can see his lips saying it.

if a boy ever says “someone’s on their period” to u when ur angry that is literally code for “punch me in the balls” so don’t hesitate

as a boy i can tell you this translation is 100% accurate

actual scientific proof
