"Your highness" is gender neutral.

So you know, if you’re ever confused about my pronouns.

That’ll work.

alternatively, “your majesty,” “my liege,” and “supreme overlord”

I really don’t care if they re-name Moana to Spirited.  I don’t care if they did the same thing for Tangled and Brave.

If Disney thinks that’s what they need to do to convince boys to see the film, good, fine, do it.

I’d much rather have Disney make a film with a female lead kicking arse that little boys are willing to watch, than a film they refuse to see because the name makes it look like a “girl film”.

I think that’s nonsense.  Why should a movie about a female character have the title changed to ‘hide’ that it’s about a female character?  They didn’t do that with Robin Hood, or Aladdin, or The Lion King, or Tarzan.  ‘Brave’ was originally titled ‘The Bear and the Bow’ so exactly what was ‘girly’ about that?

Why should anything about a female character be hidden so it will appeal to boys?  Why are boys so important and matter so much?  Why are boys the default?  Why, even when a movie is about a female character, does it still need to appeal to boys?  Notice how, ever since The Little Mermaid, even if a Disney animated film stars a female character, it’s overwhelmingly male.  Why is maleness considered universally marketable but femaleness is only a ‘niche’?

Girls shouldn’t be diminished just so boys will think something about them is cool.

based on extensive observation, I believe that my cats have only a tenuous grasp on how much of my body is “me”

It’s like, Head: definitely Big Friend, note eyes and noise-hole.

NO BUT YOU ALL NEED TO UNDERSTAND HOW FUNNY THIS IS THEYRE LITERALLY FILLING A ROBOT WITH BULLETS, LIKE BULLETS THAT YOU FIRE FROM A GUN. NOW NORMALLY FIRING A GUN TRIGGERS THE BULLET TO EXPLODE CREATING A PRESSURE THAT CAUSES THE TIP OF THE BULLET TO BE FORCED OUT OF THE BARREL AT A HIGH SPEED. 

WHaT CAVE JOHNSON’S TURRET’S DO IS LOAD A TON OF FUCKING BULLETS INTO THE CASE OF THE SENTRY LIKE IT”S A GODDAMN GUMBALL MACHINE AND THEN USE A FUcKIN SPRING LOADED PISTON TO FIRE IT THAT IS SO UNNECESSARY AND INEFFECTIVE LIKE NO WONDER CHELL CAN RESIST SO MANY BULLETS THE LIKELIHOOD ITD CAUSE ANYTHING MORE THAN A BAD BRUISE IS LIKE ONE IN A HUNDRED

but it’s 65% more bullet per bullet

Wait a second are you telling me

that Portal is such a perfect goddamn game that they even have an explanation for why a video game protagonist can withstand being shot multiple times??????????

You call yourself a free spirit, a “wild thing,” and you’re terrified somebody’s gonna stick you in a cage. Well baby, you’re already in that cage. You built it yourself.

"Wow how do you leave your house lol" I don’t. We don’t. Your crude jokes about our illnesses and disabilities are not funny. Some of us cannot, do not, leave our houses. Nobody is laughing.

Read this, and then read it again. I’m sick and tired of times in my life I barely made it through being used as someone else’s hypothetical and unimaginable worst case scenario.
