WHY ISN’T THIS THE LAW ALREADY ACROSS THE COUNTRY AND ALSO THE WORLD
This scene is SO important. Maleficent is with someone she trusts, someone she considers a friend. And then the next thing she knows, she wakes up in pain, bleeding, with her wings burned off. A huge part of her has been destroyed.
Rape is so prominent in our culture that it is in a Disney movie. Maybe not explicitly, but it is very clear what this scene represents and it is so sad.
I fucking cried my eyes out during this scene
AJ even confirmed that this is what this scene was a metaphor for (x) - just because i saw someone say today that this is not what this scene is about
'We were very conscious that it was a metaphor for rape': The actress explained how the scene in which her character has her wings ripped off her body while in a drug-induced sleep had to be something 'so violent and aggressive' that it would make her 'lose all sense of her maternity, her womanhood and her softness'
when a man violates a woman, he cuts off her wings.

Today’s picture for invisible illness is a personal one. This is one of about 30 notes that my friend has received since using her handicapped placard. I’m going to say this to you, have you ever seen someone get out of a car parked in a handicapped space and said to yourself “they look too young or they don’t look disabled.” I’m going to go with yes you have, because we all have at one time. I can’t remember doing it, but before I understood the difficulties of invisible illness when I was younger I probably did. Let me ask you this though, when you had that thought was it because you knew with 100% certainty that they weren’t handicapped or did you assume that because of their age and/or not seeing a cane, walker or wheelchair? All I’m asking is that we stop and think when we someone need a mobility aid, park in a handicapped space or say they are disabled that we remember this “DISABILITY HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH AGE OR APPEARNACE.” #spoonie #invisibleillness #disability #chronicillness #rheumatoidarthritis #lupus #fibromyalgia #myofascialpainsyndrome
If nothing else, this post needs to be seen around the internet more. This harassment is not okay and no one should have to deal with it on top of having an invisible illness. This is just another form of anonymous bullying to add to the internet bullying these TROLLS are capable of.

Let’s spread the word and help those of us that may not look like it.
Ignorance isn’t bliss, ignorance is ignorance.
My mom had cancer that has spread to her lungs and outwardly, she looked healthy. However, she couldn’t walk very far. She had a blue tag and she got some killer looks while walking to the electric wheel chairs, just because she looked healthy.
Another story: I was chewed out once for fetching one of the electric wheel chairs for her.
My best friends sister has a heart disease and she looks totally normal and everything except for the big scar on her chest and they have a handicap sign and everything, because when she walks too much, she gets very sick and I think she has trouble breathing and she starts throwing up so yes I agree with this. No, not every person with a handicap sign thing is in a wheelchair or some kind of limp. Don’t be so ignorant.
My uncle had to have the top part of his lung removed due to cancer from being in the Vietnam war. He can’t walk a long ways, especially in the hot and especially when the pollen count is high. He has to do what he can to avoid getting allergies, because the common cold make it where he is almost unable to breathe. He has a disabled tag and he parks in the disabled spots so he can make it into the store without coughing violently and without losing his breath. Can you tell he’s missing part of his lung from the outside? NO. Don’t be an asshole and judge people from the outside when you do not know their situation.
My dad is disabled. He has an auto-immune disease that attacks his muscles and the first ones attacked, were his leg muscles. When he was first diagnosed he walked fine, but couldn’t walk for long distances because his legs would give out. One day when he felt really weak, I got him an electric cart at walmart and this old lady yelled at me for “being lazy”. I explained to her that it was for my dad and that he has a hard time walking and she had the fucking nerve to say “well maybe he should lose some weight!” My dad is a chubby guy but he isn’t obese. I was just about to haul off and knock her out when the walmart greeter told her to leave the store. He knew about my dad’s condition and told her she was not welcome at the store. My dad is a lot worse now and his disability is obvious because he uses a wheelchair, but I will never forget that.
why do old people drive slow they barely have any time left like GOOOOO ur dying
