Le génie du mal [The genius of evil, aka; Lucifer]; Guillaume Geefs
“The statue was originally a commission for Geefs’ younger brother Joseph, who completed it in 1842 and installed it the following year. It generated controversy at once and was criticized for not representing a Christian ideal.The cathedral administration declared that “this devil is too sublime.”The local press intimated that the work was distracting the “pretty penitent girls” who should have been listening to the sermons.” [x]

South Korean police say that text messages and kaokao talk messages claiming to be from survivors inside the ferry had been faked. The messages surfaced at around 10 pm on Wednesday and quickly spread through twitter and Facebook.
If you listen to the end of tangled…. Rapunzel and Eugene didnt get married until several years later
same with Aladdin and jasmine!
And Belle was trapped in that castle for months with Beast; I’m pretty sure at least a year.
Also Tiana and her prince were together as frogs for an indeterminate length of time before they married.
Tumblr gets schooled by the Disney fandom
Also let’s not forget Aurora was betrothed (which uhh, was a thing and some places still is).
Cinderella had to be locked in her home away from her prince whilst she knew he was looking for her.
I love how no one is trying to defend Ariel and Snow.
When Ariel was permanently turned back into a human by her father, we don’t know how much time passed between that day and their wedding.
Snow was under the sleeping curse for at least half a year. Remember the lovely commentary animated films used to do? At the end of the film, it states, “The Prince, who had searched far and wide, heard of the maiden who slept in the glass coffin.” Additionally, it shows changes in season. And finally we don’t even see a marriage between The Prince and Snow.
Which is probably good because snow was supposed to be around 14.
The majority of Disney princesses do not get married in their movies. There is often an indeterminate amount of time between marriages and meeting. Disney girls fall in love fast, yes, but every princess getting married after a day or two is a fallacy.To recap, princesses who marry their princes immediately: Cinderella, Ariel, Tiana
There’s no escaping Cinderella as a love at first sight fairy tale (sorry Cinderella ilu but it’s true), however Tiana and Ariel both spent several days getting to know their princes, rescued them from danger, fought evil witches/witch doctors together, learned about each others passions and dreams and danced and sacrificed for each other.
Also, including Anita? She is a GROWN WOMAN who, again, probably knew Roger longer than just the scene switch implied.
There are definitely problematic elements in Disney romances, especially as they often are meant to look at the past and reflect a romantic ideal of the present onto a perceived normal method of behavior of the past BUT I find it kind of telling that a lot of the criticisms that people have raised of the other princesses due to frozen are about these teenage girls’ ability to make their own judgment calls — rather than, say, the artistic decision for many (not all! Not even most, but many, <i>including Anna</i>) of the girls to have been locked away and unable to meet other people (or people who they ‘could’ be attracted to), so the person they suddenly fall in love with literally represents something to them that’s not just love for a human being. Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White (in some ways), Ariel, Rapunzel, Anna — a lot of these were literally shut away from society (or the society they should be in/wanted to be in) and saw the first man they met in light of that. People are quick to point out that frozen makes fun of the teenage girl’s judgment and agrees with it, but don’t point out that the reason for Anna’s choice, for example, was because she saw Hans as something other than just a love interest (although she did). “Love is an open door” is about using falling in love as an opportunity, and both of them do it. And this is a story Disney writes a lot — the girl who can’t escape her situation but uses love as a way to do it.
Don’t let that image fool you. Click on the video; you won’t regret it.
(You’ll probably also shed a few tears at the end.)
See this, THIS is how adult education and illiteracy should be in real life. People being kind, supportive, encouraging, not mocking because you took a little longer to learn something. I’m sorry I get really emotional about people learning and education and I’m crying really hard right now because I really wish this was a commercial for a adult education network/organization that was becoming mainstream and commonplace and celebrated and not about alcohol
me: does this look better one pixel to the left or one pixel to the right
me: I can't decide between these two incredibly similar colors
me: should this be on overlay or soft light
me: 75% OR 74% OPACITY
