re: that last reblog

I was just talking to my brother about this last night. He was telling me something about something he’d found that talked about all these “hidden” sexual innuendos in cartoons. We got to the subject of the Powerpuff Girls and the Mayor’s assistant, Sara Bellum, who was supposed to be the “brains” of the operation (cerebellum). Remember her?


It was at this point that I said, “You know, the sucky thing about being awakened to the patriarchy and noticing all the sexist shit out there is that it’s getting harder and harder to enjoy entertainment.”

Because, Jesus Christ, it’s EVERYWHERE.
