i feel like this is really important
can we talk about how this fucking pbs show aimed at little kids easily talked about how anxiety is stressful but normal
Ok no but can we talk about this entire episode?
It was called April 9th, and it was actually a response to the 9/11 attacks. It didn’t talk about the attacks themselves, but rather focused on teaching kids to deal with the all of the emotions that they might be feeling as a result. They set up a situation that might evoke similar emotions in children: a massive fire at the school.
Arthur’s dad was in the fire, so (as you can see above), Arthur is constantly worried about his dad’s safety.
Sue Ellen is grieving because her journal, which contained a huge amount of precious memories, was destroyed in the fire. Muffy is confused why she can’t just cheer Sue Ellen up by giving her a new journal.
Buster wasn’t at school that day, and feels confused and guilty that he isn’t sad about the fire like the other kids. He then befriends the school janitor, who has to retire due to an injury that, at his age, is pretty serious.
Binky actually saw the flames, and is constantly traumatized by the event. He doesn’t tell anyone because he feels like he would lose his tough-guy reputation if he admitted that he was scared.
The episode teaches kids that all of these emotions are perfectly normal and natural, that there’s not one right way to feel, and that even if it takes a while, things are going to be okay.
The thing that makes this show so great, in my opinion, is that it knows that kids are intellegent and strong enough to deal with these things if you present them in the right way. It doesn’t hide them, it doesn’t sugar coat them, it just presents them in a way that children can understand and shows them how to deal with them.

Hey WTNV fandom
Cecil can be Caucasian
Cecil can be of African descent
Cecil can be Asian
Cecil can Native American
Cecil can be a three legged dog
Cecil could be your grandmother
He can be whatever you want him to be as long as you aren’t telling someone else that your version is better than theirs. Because he has no canon appearance. So let him be who he is, whether it’s a white man, an Asian man, or your 96 year old grandmother.

Girl, an ongoing series
by Lora Mathis
My dad was telling me about these girls at his old college who invented a nail polish that paints on clear, and if you stir your drink with your finger with the nail polish on, it will react with the “Date Rape” drug and turn red.
Dude. It’s genius.
I saw this before and didn’t reblog it because it didn’t have anything to say how but now that there is a link saying how I wil reblog it.
I don’t understand because wasn’t Olaf’s actions of lighting the fire, almost melting and then trying to save her and act of true love and shouldnt that have unfrozen her heart?
I SAID THIS IN THE THEATRES
I think the point was it had to be her act of true love rather than someone elses act towards her? Like kissing someone is a two person job but still mostly required Annas efforts. Olaf lighting the fire was his action not Anna and when Anna jumped in front of Hans sword it was her carrying out an act of true love not receiving one.
Just a lil update, sorry for not being active very lately. I’ve just kinda been a bit … out of it. Some of you have been super kind about my post and you honestly have no idea how comforting and just god damn nice it is to have people tell me it’s not my fault he took advantage of me.I konw it’s stupid because i spend a whole load of time on tumblr rebllogging “consent to one act is not consent to another” and such but there is …there is still that feeling of ” this is my fault” when it first happens. It was almost a reflex.
thankfully i have some super awesome hardcore friends who reminded me of these facts and on the whole i’m no longer in the whole self blame stage. I’m more really really fucking angry about the whole thing and how he behaved because that shit is just plain out of order!
I’ve also managed to reply to the girl who was hosting the party - she was a little curious as to why i left so early- and let her know what happened so at least i don’t have to worry about him trying anything in that situation again.
One of these women is despised and hated for being awkward.
The other is applauded and worshipped for the exact same reason.
I know other factors come into play.
But something isn’t right there.
