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 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'

Here are some picture of what some of the most popular dog breeds look like as puppies.
I DEMAND EVERY LAST ONE OF THEM.
you know what i always thought was kinda neat
when gay couples raise children and you have to pick something other than dad or mom for the kid to call you
because obviously dad and dad or mom and mom is rly confusing for all parties
can i make my future kids call me something really cool and my wife can be “mom”
can i be like megatron
"mommy’s busy go ask megatron"
I honestly believe that other entertainment communities have these problems but don’t talk about them. I’m proud that when we find out someone is being completely disgusting, we don’t try to sweep it under the rug. We don’t let them back in to perform at the Grammies next year. We don’t pretend they’re too big to be packed up in a box and removed.
I’m not saying we couldn’t do a better job. But I’m proud of how the community has handled this. Particularly Laci, who is amazing.
I feel like there’s a lot of overlap in between the YouTube and Tumblr communities, and this video is really important. The glorification and normalization of street harassment absolutely has to stop. I have an immense amount of respect for Laci and her supporters, and I hope that their actions inspire other industries to treat their transgressors similarly.

That is seriously the cutest puppy I’ve ever seen.
