~And they lived happily ever after~
This was really dumb and a lot of fun to draw :D
Well, the king is not a very good listener, but at least he allowed the best contest theme ever.
Princesses shouldn’t be prizes to be won, but if they have to, let it always be in a “Design a super rad dress I can wear to beat up dragons!” competition.
Thanks to Ros for recommending this to us!

U.S. Martin Luther King Jr being attacked as he marched nonviolently for the Chicago Freedom Movement, 1966, which was the most ambitious civil rights campaign in the North of the United States, and lasted from mid-1965 to early 1967.
If only he’d been well-spoken, pulled his pants up and didn’t wear a hoodie… oop… wait…
Please really look at this. Look at how many men are on him. Look at how you can see he is not attacking anyone. Look at how he is dressed. Imagine the fear he has that this moment may have been his last. Remember that he was assassinated by forces within the U.S. gov’t because of his mission. Before you pull that string on that MLK Jr. watered-down quote teddy, look at this, look at what’s happening today, and really fucking think.
"I always disliked that Disney chose to portray the unhealthy relationship between Rapunzel and Mother Gothel through Mother Gothel’s teasing. Mum and I can sometimes tease each other in a rather cruel way, just like Mother Gothel did Rapunzel, but in the end of the day we know we love each other just the way we are. Teasing doesn’t equal a bad relationship; I don’t know about anyone who’s closer to their mum than I am to mine"
But… it’s not the “teasing” that makes it abusive. it’s the gaslighting, the manipulation, the absolute obedience that Gothel demands, the fact that you see her - even in the image used for this confession! - giving more love to Rapunzel’s hair than Rapunzel herself. Fuck, it’s not even teasing, it’s straight up constant assaults. If it were teasing, it’d go both ways, but Rapunzel never retaliates and is visibly hurt by it. Gothel puts Rapunzel down as a tactic to keep her under her thumb which is manipulative and abusive.

As a social primate species, we modulate our morals with signals from family, friends, and social groups with whom we identify because in our evolutionary past, those attributes helped individuals to survive and reproduce.
Conformity to religion was important for survival for thousands of years, making religion a good example of natural selection among humans: To not believe was to risk being ostracized or killed. For billions of us this is still true today. Evolution is slow change…
