why is Ursula shunned from King Triton’s society? does it have something to do with being more powerful than him? why does King Triton have a magical trident, being otherwise a pretty regular merman? Ursula is a witch, if anyone should have a magical artifact it should be her, did King Triton steal it?
and finally, Ursula didn’t do Ariel much wrong
Ariel wanted some legs (and a vagina) and Ursula told her flat out that in the surface world you can have a vagina or a voice, not both
i’d watch the hell out of a movie about Ursula

“Ursula told her flat out that in the surface world you can have a vagina or a voice, not both”
ohhhh shit though, ursula was being too real about the world
although perhaps a bit too literal

Okay, these were all excellent points and I’ll never see The Little Mermaid the same way again.

I laughed at that caption at first then the reality actually hit me

you can have a vagina or a voice, not both”

Omg!!!!

So you telling me yall didn’t realize that Ariel gave up her voice for some dick

"So you telling me yall didn’t realize that Ariel gave up her voice for some dick"
LMAAAAOOOOOOO 


On the Little Mermaid 20th anniversary DVD or whatever, they have a ton of footage of the making of the animation. At one point it’s explained that Ursula is actually one of King Tritons scorned sisters.. and that they would be delving into that story AT SOME POINT in the future So when news hit that the third Little Mermaid straight to DVD film was being released, I really thought it would have Ursula’s story. But no. I’m still waiting

The East Asian women + colored hair trope
(An extension of extraextraex’s post.)
Looking at the pictures above, it’s pretty easy to find the similarities. East Asian women with dyed purple/blue/red hair, usually in a streak. No matter how you look at this, this is an uncomfortably specific trend in media. Yeah, it looks cute, but after seeing this over and over again, it becomes a boring, racist trope. This originated from a variety of possibilities: the creators trying to “Americanize” the East Asian character, make them more “exotic”, or to show how unique this character is. She’s not a giggling schoolgirl or a delicate lotus flower, she’s different! See, she has a streak of purple hair (god forbid she dyes it any other color), look how radical that is, look at our modern Dragon Lady!
And yes, Knives dyed her hair to look like Ramona, and yes, Sonmi-451’s hair is like that to mark her as a clone, but these characters do not exist in a vacuum. You can justify why a character has a specific appearance, but in the end, this character was created, and contributes to stereotypes no matter the intent.
So the moral of this story is that your Asian character with a strip of purple hair isn’t original. It isn’t unique. No matter how innocent this appears to be, it can be detrimental to East Asian girls, since the characters that look like them have the same exact traits. It’s time to explore different ways of designing East Asian characters, instead of just slapping on some purple and calling it a day.

Wow I never knew that every anime ever was secretly super racist against Asians

literally what the fuck are you talking about/trying to imply

Literally 99% of anime has characters with “exotic” hair. Just because it’s an over used or popular “trope” doesn’t mean there is anything sinister/oppressive/racist about it.
Hair color has been Hollywood’s lazy way of showing that a character is edgy or an individual without having to bother with character development. It’s used with every race and gender.
Just to clarify: Hair dye = not racist just lazy.

doesn’t ellen paige in whip it try to dye her hair a wild colour to be edgy and different? i’m p. sure it’s not a racist trope and just fucking cool
and i have purple hair. oh god. am i being subsumed by the racist tropes ascribed to my grandmother?! 

hello friend, i am here to collect you for your (hopefully) unwitting racism/ignorance. because i’ve just showered after a shitty day in retail hell without air conditioning i’m gonna bullet point this. i’m not trying to be an asshole, but i consider you a friend and that’s why i’m hoping you’ll at least listen to me, someone of east asian descent who is also tired of this lazy, insidiously racist trope.
the comment about you having purple hair is derailment. this post is about asian women in western media depicted with colored hair as a trope to denote “badassery and not-like-other-girl-iness”
what is this post about? not about you
the anime comment is totally shitty bc guess what: anime is made by east asians for east asian consumption. pretty much everyone in anime is assumed to be east asian unless it’s specifically mentioned that they’re mixed or foreign. it’s pretty much standard that anime people have weird colored hair, but again that’s made by actual east asian people for east asian consumption.
the problem with this trope is that these are all examples of asian women in western media. western media has used colored hair on asian women as shorthand to differentiate them from the other main two racist east asian tropes: the giggling schoolgirl and the submissive asian woman
like yeah, having colored hair is cool, i wish i had the guts to color my hair. but these creative decisions do not occur in a vacuum, especially when East Asian Woman Who Kicks Ass (Usually With Martial Arts or a Sword or Both) has colored hair pretty much every time. (this also makes her a subset of the also racist trope of Dragon Lady). like op said: it’s lazy and overdone. once is happenstance, twice is coincidence, three times is enemy action.
on another note: it’s not cool that as a white person, you talked over an asian person talking about how something made them feel to say how Not Racist it is
please for the sake of our friendship, take this as a learning opportunity
