so, people keep asking who miranda gunner is, and i’m going to fucking tell you

you might recognize her name from the post going around with all her “funny” facebook statuses where she’s just a rude cunt to people in the comments. hilarious.

in any case, this girl constantly bullies people, tells them to kill themselves, threatens them, etc. (as shown here)

she’s homophobic, racist, and just generally a fucking awful person

she is personally responsible for the suicide of a girl in my city, bullied her and harassed her and convinced others to do the same until she fucking took her own life

i just want y’all to be fucking aware before you call her “funny” or whatever for that post of her statuses floating around

btw, her tumblr url is highmiranda 

just putting this here so you all know the truth.

SPREAD THIS LIKE WILDFIRE

Reblogging because wow what a disgusting piece of trash.

oh my god what a fucking pile of shit

"When I got into the music industry a majority of female artists I’d seen were trying to regurgitate an ideal of the female image. They were trying to be almost a replica of what was popular. I just found that to be very boring and dishonest. I just wanted to be in control of my clothes. I wanted that choice. That’s the only thing that I’m saying. Women should not be marginalized. We shouldn’t play into the sexism." - Janelle Monae [x[

Once again for the people who insist on using Jane as the mascot for their respectability politricks and bullshit. Just seen some clowns trying to use her to tear down Rihanna the other day. Cut that shit out.

Why Frozen is sexist

I actually said this before in another post, but I’ll say it again: Anna eventually falls for the man who totally intimidates her out of his way when they first meet. He judges her even though they are complete strangers to each other and throughout the movie until they come to Elsa’s palace he ridicules and belittles her and, for a movie that is claimed to be “feminist,” he is always saving her from something. Then they fall off a cliff together and all of a sudden he’s nice to her all the time. Yeah, really good character development there. Totally a feminist movie.

Why Frozen is racist

Kristoff has been confirmed to be of Sami culture. Those of Sami culture had dark skin, but clearly Kristoff does not. The creators of Frozen used plenty of Sami culture (Kristoff’s clothes and the yoik at the title sequence, for example), yet they white-washed Kristoff instead of designing him with the color of skin he should have had, based on his culture.

I’m probably not doing a great job of explaining this, I would seriously recommend you look at frozensuckstho, another anti-Frozen blog, and find her arguments.

Why Frozen is ableist

The creators of Frozen said that Elsa was supposed to have depression and anxiety. However, they did a horrible job of portraying it. Elsa was stuck in her room for 13 years, hardly ever coming out except for maybe meals and some other things she could have been doing. She should have been pale from lack of sunlight, skinny and lanky from lack of exercise, and overall should not have looked like this:

or the way she did when she transformed (picture will not load on here).

This makes it look like this kind of isolation, depression, and anxiety looks pretty. I’m not saying that people with depression and anxiety can’t be pretty, but if Disney wanted to give a good portrayal of these mental conditions, then they should not have used this look for Elsa. And to be honest, having ice magic be the overall source of this depression is not the best idea either, since it also gives it a pretty outside look.

They also treated these mental conditions as though a little love could fix everything (Fixer Upper, anyone?). I do not have any of these conditions but I have talked to people on this very site who have depression, and telling them you love them doesn’t help very much, even when they know you mean it. Love helps, certainly, but in real life it isn’t an insta-cure. It requires counseling and support and lots of other things that I don’t know much about. It is a process to get over depression.

Elsa did not go through a process; the minute Anna was unfrozen, it was, “Oh, love will thaw! Of course!” She immediately got over her conditions and was able to unfreeze the supposed eternal winter over her kingdom.

If only people could get over depression that quickly.

If you want confirmation of why Frozen is racist, sexist and ableist, or you want better explanations, I again point you to frozensuckstho.

Okay, if you’re going to rant about these things, do your research first. All Sami people don’t have dark skin - in fact, many of them are fair-skinned:image

The definition of sexism is discriminating someone, specifically women, on the basis of gender. Kristoff does not “belittle” Anna, there’s not one line where he insults her. What he does is in complete contrast to Hans; he points out her mistakes. He calls her out on her poor decision to marry someone she just met, he reminds her that climbing up the side of a mountain inexperienced is deadly and foolish. And he’s not always “saving her,” in fact, it’s more often the other way around. Anna fights the wolves, Anna pulls him over the cliff edge, Anna hits Marshmallow with the tree, Anna cut the line to set them free; the only time Kristoff “saves her” is when he catches her from the mountain and when he takes her back to Arendelle. And in the movie climax, it is Anna who saves herself, it’s not Kristoff, it’s not Elsa, it’s not Olaf; she sacrificed herself and thus preformed her own act of true love. 

Totally not a feminist movie. 

Lastly, to say Elsa can’t suffer from depression because she’s too pretty is such a shameful argument. Especially considering that we see her on her coronation day, the day she’s goes to have to look pretty; she probably had maids and servants working on her for hours. The movie isn’t saying depression is pretty and wow love is stronger than anything. It’s saying that families need to be there for each other, that going through depression alone is much harder than it is with the love and support of a sister. By the end of the movie, it’s normal for Elsa to be smiling and happy, it’s a happy event that’s occurring! To act like depressed people never feel happy EVER in their lives is ridiculous. And after the screen goes to black, to act like Elsa will be happy forever is just as ridiculous. She’s going to have more bad days, she’s going to not want to wake up some days, a part of her might always second-guess her powers. But this time, it’ll be different, because she has someone to turn to, someone to comfort her, someone to tell her she can get through her bad spells. 

If you don’t like Frozen, that’s fine, but labeling it with cheap insults and no substantial proof to back it up isn’t. 

i normally stay out of stuff like this but wow, this needed to be said

please read this

DESTROY the idea that people have to look a certain way to be mentally ill.

It’s funny because Sargeant Calhoun is also an example.
Also, Elsa wouldn’t look pale when deppressed, she actually becomes pale when she is singing Let It Go. Because the pale skin is associated with cold and that moment she realises the cold never bothered her anyway.

I had this exact conversation with my friend and her mom when I was like 14. They still don’t believe me.

YOU DONT UNDERSTAND, THEY SPEND THE WHOLE EPISODE TALKING ABOUT THIS BEFORE SOPHIA GIVES THEM A MIRROR AND SEX ED LESSONS
