Disney’s Deep Message Behind ‘The Little Mermaid’

I think we all gotta learn from Arial’s mistakes. No, not ‘don’t brush your hair with a fork’ but something else a lot deeper (pun not intended) that all the ladies out there gotta hear about. Btw this is in no way me tryna be a Karen and ‘cancel’ Disney, it’s just a good example lol.

So for all you people who haven’t watched the little mermaid (aka those who live in darkness) or those who haven’t watched it in a while, let me give you a quick wee rundown of what happens. So basically, this ‘main character’ talking fish human loves old shit, but then her dad explodes it, so being the dramatic bitch she is she swims away and finds a dying man in the sea. She fancies said man and literally brings him to shore and stares at him for a while and then is like ‘shit I’m a fish’ scuttles back into the sea. Oh, and meanwhile a Jamaican crab is following her, obviously. But then Arial gets all lovey-dovey for this guy she only looked at and begins to hate life in the sea despite the fact that is cool as fuck. But anyways, these eels are like ‘we got you bitch’ and sweep her away to this octopus bitch. She literally lives in a cave with all these crusty dead people’s soles and octo-bitch basically is like ‘I’ll give you feet’ and Arial is all biz and can’t wait but then octo-bitch is like ‘and I’ll take your voice’ so then Arial is like ‘oh shit but ok’. So she grows her feet and literally dies in the sea but then her fish friend swims her up onto the beach and she has to get a kiss from her manz to get her voice back. That is basically all that is important for this post. So hopefully that caught you up and we can get started.

So what was Arial’s big mess up? Let’s shout it for the people in the back! SHE SILENCED HERSELF FOR A MAN! Never will I ever condone such behaviour from a living person. I mean there is true love and there is idiocracy, and it’s a fine line but this bitch is so far from the line that she is in the dictionary under the word dumb. Like, obviously in terms of the movie I made it way too deep and it really does just add a twist, but what I am trying to say is that no queen should have to lose her voice for any prince no matter what. And I’ll say that ’til the day I die.

It is literally the 21st-century bitch. We educated, we grown, we got rights. So don’t let nobody take that from you. Like you really can’t give that up for a second because imagine one of the suffragettes was watching and saw you literally lose your voice just so you could get a man. Like that is pretty much the opposite of what they wanted and bitch they got what they want, so it’s about time we showed our gratitude and spoke our truth. I’m not gonna lie, I had stayed quiet for a guy before and I realise that isn’t good, but when you are in that situation you are willing to do anything to stay with them, even if that means taking away your opinion and thoughts. Like it is so shite to hear that people have to make themselves quiet and weak just for a man to like her even remotely.

Arial literally could have lost everything just so she got find this man who she knew nothing about and that is similar, in some ways, to how girls act nowadays trying to get a guy. We should never have to lose our voice or sell our soul to the devil for nobody. I don’t care if it is fucking Brad Pitt or Tom Holland or whoever the fuck you like, you better speak up because if they don’t like that then that’s their problem and you shouldn’t change yourself. Let them come and go because someday some person will come and stay to hear what you have to say. They may even stand up with you to help amplify your opinions so now you are twice as loud. Even if they leave you and you lose everything, you still have your morals and your voice and that will get you further than anything else in this world

Thankfully large octopus people can’t really come chasing after you with a shell demanding your voice, but something similar is men and society in general. So you run girl. You run as fast as those legs can handle and you shout from the top of your lungs because you are just as entitled to an opinion as anyone else. You preach what you think and you show them was a boss bitch you are. Never change for anyone but yourself. Show younger girls from across the world that their voice is a superpower that we all have but we may not fully realise.

So get up on a stage, put your hand up in class, continue speaking when you’re interrupted in class and do whatever it is you need to do to get heard. But whatever you do, you must never ever apologize. I hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT.

The Butterfly Effect

What is the butterfly effect? It is the theory that even a tiny event, like a butterfly flapping its wings, can have a large impact in the future, like a hurricane. A lot of people also call it “the domino effect” because, as you know, when you hit one domino down, it hits them all down after it.

But why am I talking about this today? It is a bit random, isn’t it? Like, it has been talked about so much when people are trying to be motivating or shit. They’ll be like “a smile can make someones day” and all that shit, but in this post, I just want to quickly dive into my brain about what I think about the butterfly effect and tell you something I only just started to realise and think about in terms of the butterfly effect. It will get pretty wild so I suppose this is a warning for an existential crisis. So take that information as you will and either keep reading or maybe go check out one of my other posts.

When I think about the butterfly effect, I always think of it in some motivational way at first. Like it makes me feel like I make a difference but then that can lead to a lot of overthinking about how it can make the world worse and shit so I guess it isn’t that motivational lol. But when I think about it, I prefer focusing on how fucking complex and amazing it is. I have to admit I do believe in it. I don’t see it as much of a theory as I do a fact and to be honest, I am not sure if this is a theory but either way I think it is true. I mean it doesn’t mean that I do things intentionally like blinking and standing back like “damn, I just stopped global warming” because that’s just a fucking lie, but I kinda think that some stuff was meant to be and like if even some small events were different then this world would be completely different.

I don’t know if you have seen that one Simpsons episode where Homer makes a time machine with a toaster and he goes to a time where there are dinosaurs and weird shit and then he kills a bug or something and then when he thinks he went back to his normal home, the world was completely different and people had fucking lizard tongues and doughnuts fell from the sky. Obviously, that last one might be a bit far fetched but I guess I believe the whole concept that one minor change could make the future completely different. And I suppose if we use the killing the bug idea that it throws the food chain off a bit. Like maybe one bird was gonna eat it but then obviously couldn’t so may die or have to go somewhere else and then maybe something happens at the new place that wouldn’t have happened if the bird stayed at the old place. That would take a long time to make a big difference I suppose but let’s talk about more relevant things. And by the way, this is where it is gonna get deeper!

The event that I have been thinking about that was a great example of the butterfly effect is when gravity was discovered or learned about when an apple fell on Newton’s head. Like what are the fucking chances of that. The apple would have to fall at a specific time in the exactly right place. Newton was the perfect person to get hit with and he chose to sit in the exact right spot. I mean gravity would have been “discovered” at some point but the fact it happened when it did probably changed everything we knew and know today and advanced so many things. Like if it was only discovered a few years ago, what would the world be like, what would we be taught in school? Would a lot of things be designed or explained differently? The event that shaped the world of since was a bloody coincidence. It would have to be perfect timing in every sense of the word, from the time the tree was planted to the time that Newton woke up that day.

It is crazy how things like that happen. It kinda makes you think it was meant to be but again it is all just the butterfly effect. There wasn’t someone who had planned this to happen all along but there was one event that caused all that. There was a random ass tree that people walked past every day never knowing that it would change science, and there was a mistake made in a lab that created penicillin which has saved so many fucking lives. Probably saved the lives of so many influential people who, if penicillin didn’t exist, would be dead and wouldn’t have impacted the world like they did. Like Abraham Lincon, helping free the slaves, or the wright brothers creating the first successful plane, and even David Attenborough who has helped spread awareness about the planet and how everything works. Like it is so mental when you actually think about it.

There are probably things in your life that you may not think about but have actually completely changed the person that you are. Maybe one negative thing someone said to you spiralled into some low self-esteem but made you stronger and more confident later on because you grew from that and were able to figure things out that may have been ignored or missed if you hadn’t gone through what you did. Like Lady Gaga who got bullied in school. Obviously, that type of stuff isn’t good, but who would she be today if she didn’t go through that? Would she still be the confident, uplifting, fantastically talented person that she is today? I don’t know but I would guess not. Was it that type of stuff that broke her down and allowed her to build herself into the amazingly empathetic, down-to-earth amazing person ever? Yep. Everything that happens will make you into the person that you are to become and although it may not be good now, you may become someone’s idol or reason for life.

That got kinda deep and motivational and I was kinda aiming for more of a shock factor kind of existential crisis shit but that’ll do I guess. Don’t forget to like, follow and comment on what you think about the butterfly effect. I hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT.
