Here’s something I wanted to talk about every time a movie comes out that shows us an “empowered” White girl and says how she’s some sort of role model for all women because she shows that women don’t have to be fragile or delicate.
As much as I loved Brave and despised Snow White and the Huntsman, people saying this sort of thing really, really irritates me.
Know why it irritates me? Because so many women don’t get to be seen as fragile, delicate, or vulnerable. Most of these women are women who look like me.
Hello everyone, and weclcome to the 20th episode of Brain Food, wherein I review the comic book La Brujeira!
It feels good to have done as much as I have, and I am happy for those who watch this series. I like to believe that in doing this series, it helps to make me a better person and that I will become a better person still in examining bigotry, racism, and sexism, as well as other woes, in writing and recommending works of writing that go beyond stereotypes and show even a part of the full spectrum that makes up human beings.
Plus, I just love reading!
