There was something awesomely understated about The Weekenders. Maybe it’s the fact that one of the few cartoons where the main characters wear something different on three consecutive days in every episode. Maybe it’s because it’s a show about four friends (two guys and two girls) where the two girls regularly pass the Bechdel test with ease.  Or maybe it was one of the last great One Saturday Morning cartoons Disney churned out. 

But yeah. I really liked The Weekenders. 

Later days.

I think the appeal is that it was a cartoon that while having zany moments never strayed into complete ridiculousness and the characters feel like actual people, including adults. I would also say that it’s also because the writers do not talk down to their audiences.

They had really great episodes too, like the time when Lor (I think it’s spelt that way) tried to change herself to impress a guy by trying to become like a model who barely ate anything. This show was awesome.

#LET ME TELL YOU A THING #I really seriously fucking loved Weekenders as a kid #and even now I regularly re-watch the show #because even years after the first airing THIS SHOW REGULARLY HITS HOME #it’s spectacularly written #the characters are so real and so relatable #it’s hilarious as fuck without being slapstick gross or immature #it regularly and tastefully tackles things that people don’t get right even now#they have single parents dating and kids trying to deal with that#they have trying to change yourself for someone you like (and finding out you don’t have to)#they regularly broke stereotypes and tropes by introducing 3 dimensional characters#they have a nerdy girl and a sporty girl and a guy who’s obsessed with looks and shoes#AND IT’S NEVER PORTRAYED AS SOMETHING TO BE ASHAMED OF OR SOMETHING TO RIDICULE#it’s just who they ARE#it’s literally about four friends hanging out and going through life#it’s just honestly one of the most well-written well-rounded and hilarious slice of life kind of cartoons out there#EVER#I’m not even shitting you#If you’ve never watched The Weekenders you are missing out on so much#GO WATCH IT NOW

Isn’t it weird and amazing how straight men have apparently universally decided that they’d rather fuck a piece of taffy than a human woman.

oh man I would reblog your fabulous graphic but it’s just so much easier to right click, select ‘save file’, pick a folder, name the file, go to my dashboard, open a new photo post, click ‘upload’, find where I saved the file, select it, wait for it to load, tag it, and repost it gosh darn

I got dressed in my traditional Indian regalia, but there was a man, he was the producer of the whole show. He took that speech away from me and he warned me very sternly. “I’ll give you 60 seconds or less. And if you go over that 60 seconds, I’ll have you arrested. I’ll have you put in handcuffs.”

- Sacheen Littlefeather in Reel Injun (2009), dir. Neil Diamond.

They were MAD, CONFUSED AND PRESSED that Marlon Brando would betray White Supremacy in this way.

To this very day, they are TWISTED over this.

And when Littlefeather got up there and READ THEM FOR FILTH, they GAGGED. For eons.

So I imagine there are people like me out there who’ve never even heard of Marlon Brando and are extremely confused over why this is important.

Marlon Brando was the Don in The Godfather, and in 1973, he was nominated for and won an Academy Award for it. However, he was also a huge Natives rights activist, and boycotted the ceremony because he felt that Hollywood’s depictions of Native Americans in the media led to the Wounded Knee Incident (which I was always taught as “the second massacre at Wounded Knee” but apparently that’s not the real name). He sent Sacheen Littlefeather, an Apache Native rights activist, in his stead. Wikipedia’s article on her explains the rest:

Brando had written a 15-page speech for Littlefeather to give at the ceremony, but when the producer met her backstage he threatened to physically remove her or have her arrested if she spoke on stage for more than 60 seconds.[5] Her on-stage comments were therefore improvised. She then went backstage and read the entire speech to the press. In his autobiography My Word is My BondRoger Moore (who presented the award) claims he took the Oscar home with him and kept it in his possession until it was collected by an armed guard sent by the Academy.

That is what this gifset is about.

You have GOT to read up on this. The Wounded Knee Incident, Marlon Brando and Sacheen Littlefeather, Anna Mae Aquash. ALL OF IT.

women grow hair on their boobs and their butts and their legs and their arms and their stomachs and their face and really anywhere their genetics decides to have hair and it is perfectly normal what isnt normal is men who have never touched a razor trying to shame women for not looking like a hairless baby
