Dad: Why do you think they do that?
Girl: Because the companies who make these try to trick the girls into buying the pink stuff instead of stuff boys want to buy. [x]
that awkward moment when a child understands the harm of forcing gender roles better than most grown male politicians.
I’m surprised that I haven’t reblogged this, to be honest.
I love that last gif. She looks so frustrated. Like “Um, hello, obviously girls and boys can like anything why doesn’t anybody get that???”
She does have a point though..
Kids who are smarter than adults though.
Isn’t it kinda sad that this girl who looks, what, four years old TOTALLY GETS IT but adults just do not seem to be able to?
Afortunadamente, Veronica Mars nunca fue una serie que tratara de amores. Si lo hubiese sido, sin duda la CW la habría cancelado. No era el típico drama adolescente, y Veronica no era la típica protagonista adolescente. En su lugar, era un personaje complejo que existía más allá de sus novios, inteligente, dañada y divertida. El hombre más importante de su vida siempre fue su padre.
Hacía sus deberes e iba a clase. En pantalla. Llevaba ropa que no era de diseña, y la volvía a llevar en capítulos posteriores. Era un personaje real, y esas características familiares permitían que cualquier espectador que hubiese ido al instituto la aceptara, incluso aunque fuera una pequeña adolescente que resultaba tener una doble vida como una detective privada muy capaz que resolvía misterios sin ninguna ayuda.” Laura Hurley, writer (via hanitjemars)
Buffy: Once More With Feeling (6x07)
BARTLET: It says here in a briefing paper hastily written by Deputy Josh Lyman that in the ’60s, when the Madison Superintendent of Schools banned Twelfth Night for reasons passing understanding, a Mrs. Molly Morello had students over to her house on Saturdays to read it.
DONNA: I didn’t know that, sir. Josh wrote you a memo on Molly Morello?
BARTLET: Yeah, ‘cause all I had tonight was a nuclear spill in Idaho. It says she came in two hours early to teach an AP English class she developed herself because the school didn’t offer one.
DONNA: I was in that class.
BARTLET: Sounds like she deserves a proclamation. I wish I could give her one, but I can’t.
DONNA: I totally understand.
BARTLET: It’s just too much inside baseball, you know?
DONNA: You’re very nice to even talk to me about it.
BARTLET: Charlie, I’ve been tapping my finger on the desk for about a minute now.
BARTLET: The magic man thing works a lot better when you pick up on the signals, Tonto. What’s that you say? There’s a phone call for Donna? [Donna looks shocked as Bartlet hits the speakerphone.] Good evening, this is the White House, for whom are you holding?
MRS. MORELLO: [on the phone] I’m holding for Donna Moss. This is Mrs. Morello.
DONNA: [whispering] Oh my God.
MRS. MORELLO: Donna?
DONNA: Mrs. Morello, it’s me.
MRS. MORELLO: Is everything all right?
DONNA: Everything’s fine.
MRS. MORELLO: I hadn’t heard from you in such a long time so I thought…
DONNA: No, everything’s fine. Sally Seidelman told me you were retiring.
MRS. MORELLO: At the end of this year.
DONNA: Well, I… I just wanted to say. I don’t know, I just… I just wanted to say… I don’t know.
MRS. MORELLO: Are — are you sure everything’s all right?
BARTLET: [whispering] Tell her where you are.
DONNA: Mrs. Morello, I’m in the Oval Office with the President of the United States and it’s because of you.
