To The People Upset About Finding Dory's Gay Couple

It's 2016; time to wake up.

To The People Upset About Finding Dory's Gay Couple

You are the mastermind behind the world being such a “bad place,” not the movie. If you don’t want your children to be exposed to this, you are setting them up for a life full of judgment, close-mindedness and incapacity to make true friends.

I realize there are religious practices and beliefs that are totally against gays and transgender people, but don’t blindfold your kids to the different types of love, people and choices that make up our Earth. We all walk on the same ground.

I am by no means gay; I am straighter than straight could be. But, after going away to college and opening my eyes a little bit, I have realized that most gay people are actually harmless and would do just about anything for anyone. They are not pedophiles, they do not want to hurt you, they are not trying to brainwash you into becoming gay (newsflash; most are born that way) and they sure as hell are not judging you for being straight.

In case you have lived under a rock for the past twenty years, let me fill you in on what this movie is trying to do. First of all, the main character, Dory, is voiced over by Ellen DeGeneres. I don’t know if you are aware, but Ellen is a lesbian. She has not let her sexual preference and the negative opinions and beliefs of society stop her from changing the world. She is not just gay; she is proud, successful, selfless, loved, intelligent, hilarious and world-renowned. She has written books, has a show that people worship and watch every day of the week, she has been in movies, given away billions of dollars of her fortune and she speaks openly about her love life. All of which I think is awesome. It makes her happy, so she should talk about it.

I am just curious as to why you are so worried about the gay couple. Do you think they are going to throw in some gay porn? Are the two gay women going to be protesting for their rights? Will they be talking about their sexuality? NO. For crying out loud, it is a children’s movie. Disney’s Pixar is modern, up-to-date and just trying to open the tiny, fresh minds that will be watching to the many different family types of the world. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that.

What if one day your child makes a friend who has two mommies and wants to go over to their house to play? Are you going to be that parent who stops them and doesn’t tell them why? All of their other friends will be allowed to go play. They won’t grow up thinking that being gay is so wrong and disgusting like your children. They will make friends based on their personalities and character- not their sexual preferences.

You know, I feel bad for you. I feel bad that you haven’t gotten with the times yet. I feel bad that you haven’t been able to open your eyes, heart and mind to a large portion of great people in the world. I personally love meeting great people and hearing their stories, whether they are gay or not. They are genuinely happy and have had to overcome a lot in order to show their happiness off to the world.

So, don’t take your kids to that movie if that is what will help you sleep at night. Let them be completely speechless when they see two men holding hands in public and are filled with a thousand questions at once. Let them be that bully on the playground who makes fun of the girl who dresses like a boy. Let them laugh and point at the man wearing a dress in a store. You are the parent. You are the one who sheltered them, so you are the one who is going to be slapped in the face by humanity and the people who have already accepted the hundreds of types of people in this world. Don’t expose them to the beauty of freedom of choice and the uncountable amounts of positivity that Ellen DeGeneres brings to this world. They will hopefully learn to be open minded on their own, because it doesn’t look like you will be an influence.

Enjoy your popcorn and don’t choke on it when you see the gay couple.

Prayers your way

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Constantly introducing young children to the magical works of nature will further increase the willingness to engage in playful activities as well as broaden their interactions with their peers


Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
