This is an image of the good fairies from the upcoming Maleficent movie.

Remember how they were fat, grey-haired, kindly old women in the original Sleeping Beauty? Well, Disney has changed them to cutesy, young, thin fairies in the new movie. What was wrong with the old designs? If Disney wanted to make them younger, that’s fine (I think this is meant to be a prequel of sorts?) But why do they have to be thinner? Why can’t they be cute, young, AND round? It’s so frustrating seeing such awesome and unique character designs turned into the same ol’ generic Tinkerbell-esque look we see in every fairy movie.

Thin privilege is having previously-fat characters intentionally changed into thin characters to make them more appealing for audiences :(

SUBMISSION: Toy combs from the early 90’s. // md

My sister and I were looking at this and we immediately recognized the teddy bear, the shooting star, the butterfly with the long tail, and the flower-and-stem. Also the two flowers with the long teeth on the right and the plain oval one on the left and the sunrise in the center.

We did love our My Little Ponies, which most of those were for.

Meet Frankie and Norma, two weekend arrivals at Coast & Canyon Wildlife Rehabilitation in Malibu, California. It’s unusual for skunk babies this small to arrive so late in the season but these sweet siblings are warm, fed, snuggled up together and doing well.

A very courageous little dog saved all her babies during a fire in Temuco, Chile by bringing them one by one from a burning house to the steps of the firefighters’ truck.
