'Finding Dory' Swims to Theaters June 17th

'Finding Dory' Swims to Theaters June 17th

"Just keep swimming, just keep swimming."

We first met a familiar blue tang fish named Dory 13 years ago as she helped Marlin the Clownfish find his missing son, Nemo. On June 17th, Dory will journey to reunite with her mother and father in "Finding Nemo's" sequel, "Finding Dory."

Thankfully, a few characters from the prequel will return in the upcoming movie, including Dory, Marlin, Nemo, Mr. Ray, Crush, and Squirt. Most of the creatures that appeared in Finding Nemo will be voiced by the same people: Ellen DeGeneres as Dory, Albert Brooks as Marlin, Bob Peterson as Mr. Ray, and Andrew Stanton (the director of both "Finding Nemo" and "Finding Dory") as Crush. However, both Nemo and Squirt will both be voiced by new voice cast members. Nemo, originally voiced by Alexander Gould, will be voiced by Hayden Rolence, and Squirt, originally voiced by Nicholas Bird, will be voiced by Bennett Dammann.

In the new movie, the forgetful Dory that we know and love suddenly recollects past memories with her mother and father and something having to do with the “jewel of Morro Bay, California.” Determined to reunite with her parents, Nemo and Marlin accompany their forgetful fish friend in her long journey.

Although it’s great to see familiar characters in the new movie, we meet some new memorable sea creatures throughout Dory’s quest. Destiny, a whale shark voiced by Kaitlin Olson, is Dory’s childhood friend. They reunite when Dory mistakenly falls into Destiny’s pool at the Marine Life Institute, where Destiny resides. Dory is delighted to discover that her old friend Destiny can speak whale, too. Bailey, a white beluga whale voiced by Ty Burrell, is another resident of the Marine Life Institute. He struggles with his biological sonar skills and believes that they have ceased working properly altogether. Hank, an octopus voiced by Ed O’Neill, also meets Dory at the Marine Life Institute and agrees to be her guide in the mission to find her parents. Hank is most likely the least friendly character, but agrees to help Dory in order to advance in his travels to a facility in Cleveland, where he plans to spend the rest of his life alone in peace. If you enjoy Burrell and O’Neill’s relationship in the hit TV show "Modern Family" as Phil Dumphey and Jay Pritchett, you’ll love their relationship as Bailey and Hank.

When Disney officially announced that there would be a sequel to "Finding Nemo," DeGeneres spoke about her satisfaction of a sequel on her talk show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show. She said:

“I have waited for this day for a long, long, long, long, long, long time. I'm not mad it took this long. I know the people at Pixar were busy creating Toy Story 16. But the time they took was worth it. The script is fantastic. And it has everything I loved about the first one: It's got a lot of heart, it's really funny, and the best part is—it's got a lot more Dory.”

So make sure to “Just Keep Swimming” to theaters everywhere on June 17th.

I'm A Woman And You Can't Convince Me Breastfeeding In Public Is OK In 2019

Sorry, not sorry.


Lately, I have seen so many people going off on social media about how people shouldn't be upset with mothers breastfeeding in public. You know what? I disagree.

There's a huge difference between being modest while breastfeeding and just being straight up careless, trashy and disrespectful to those around you. Why don't you try popping out a boob without a baby attached to it and see how long it takes for you to get arrested for public indecency? Strange how that works, right?

So many people talking about it bring up the point of how we shouldn't "sexualize" breastfeeding and seeing a woman's breasts while doing so. Actually, all of these people are missing the point. It's not sexual, it's just purely immodest and disrespectful.

If you see a girl in a shirt cut too low, you call her a slut. If you see a celebrity post a nude photo, you call them immodest and a terrible role model. What makes you think that pulling out a breast in the middle of public is different, regardless of what you're doing with it?

If I'm eating in a restaurant, I would be disgusted if the person at the table next to me had their bare feet out while they were eating. It's just not appropriate. Neither is pulling out your breast for the entire general public to see.

Nobody asked you to put a blanket over your kid's head to feed them. Nobody asked you to go feed them in a dirty bathroom. But you don't need to basically be topless to feed your kid. Growing up, I watched my mom feed my younger siblings in public. She never shied away from it, but the way she did it was always tasteful and never drew attention. She would cover herself up while doing it. She would make sure that nothing inappropriate could be seen. She was lowkey about it.

Mindblowing, right? Wait, you can actually breastfeed in public and not have to show everyone what you're doing? What a revolutionary idea!

There is nothing wrong with feeding your baby. It's something you need to do, it's a part of life. But there is definitely something wrong with thinking it's fine to expose yourself to the entire world while doing it. Nobody wants to see it. Nobody cares if you're feeding your kid. Nobody cares if you're trying to make some sort of weird "feminist" statement by showing them your boobs.

Cover up. Be modest. Be mindful. Be respectful. Don't want to see my boobs? Good, I don't want to see yours either. Hard to believe, I know.
