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.

One would assume that scientists, who are trained to think objectively, are completely immune to gender discrimination. However, a recent Yale study by Corinne Moss-Racusin and colleagues suggests otherwise.
The researchers created a fictional student and sent out the student’s application to science professors at top, research-intensive universities in the United States. The professors were asked to evaluate how competent this student was, how likely they would be to hire the student, how much they would pay this student, and how willing they would be to mentor the student. All of the applications sent out were identical, except for the fact that half were for a male applicant, John, and half were for a female applicant, Jennifer. Results showed that, with statistical significance, both male and female faculty at these institutions were biased towards male students over female students.
Data from the study shows that on average, science faculty was willing to pay the male applicant about $4,000 more per year. source

"The gender gap doesn’t exist" 
"We don’t need feminism" 
"Maybe he just worked harder"
"*any MRA bullshit*"

I had to read this study for class. It is thorough as fuck.

It’s #day142 ! I’ve been clean from cutting for exactly 142 days now and I’ve come to know that numbers aren’t just simply numbers. Numbers are encapsulated infinites that only last a moment. My numbers have grown bigger and gotten smaller and I’m hoping and working for more and more infinities. I want as many infinities as I can get and I know now that I’m the only one who can get them for me. I’m determined to proce to myself that I deserve every last infinity. I deserve people to share in those infinities. I deserve life and wonder and enchantment. I deserve meaning and beauty. I deserve all the happiness I can gather for myself. I don’t have to do it alone, but I do knoe that I can do it alone. I know my path is like that of a video game, filled with excitement, danger, action, defeats, and triumphs but most of all I carry with me tools and dear and close friends that I can call on to help me fight my way through. I can do this. I finally believe in myself. I believe that I can. And there’s nothing in the verse that can stop me. 😘😘 #me #selfie #recovering #recovery


So proud of you :3 I remember when it was in the fifties you’re doing great
