there’s always those neighbour countries that sort of hate each other like new zealand and australia, britain and france, the rest of the world and america
” Sophie , you’re beautiful! “
#no but like #you don’t understand how important and meaningful sophie’s arc in this movie is #she starts out hating herself because she believes herself to be ugly and dumb#then she’s turned into an old hag and promptly loses most of her insecurities because she no longer has to care about being beautiful #then we find out the curse weakens whenever she is being strong and it shows her real self underneath #which means the curse is mostly self-inflicted and not done by the witch of the waste #sophie curses herself because it is easier for her #but because she starts to see that she is important to people and others love her #she grows out of it and finally is able to stand up for others #and break her own curse #and get some fucking shit done #sophie is my hero and my gpoy always
In the book, Sophie possess a certain kind of magical power - she makes things real by saying them. She can lay spells just by saying them. When she made hats, and she told a hat that it would make a rich young man fall in love with it, a rich young man fell in love with the woman who bought it. When she told a hat it would make some woman look beautiful, everyone knew the mayor’s wife looked positively radiant in it. It’s what drew the Witch to her hat shop in the first place. When she cursed out a bucket of plant food, it turned to potent weed killer. When she told herself she might as well be an old woman, when she told herself she was doomed to fail, when she told herself she was plain and boring and no one would ever notice her, no one did.
When Howl tried to break the spell on Sophie, and he tried many times, he always failed. Not because his magic was less powerful than the Witch’s, but because it was less powerful than Sophie’s.
I think we still live in a culture that assumes that men are single by choice and women are single because no one wants them.

This is the Memorial to the Missing and contains over 50,000,000 pennies to represent the lives of each American child abandoned to abortion by a society and a culture that has embraced their destruction. We must prevent the need to add to this memorial. Take a stand. Get involved.
”How we treat the least of us defines us.”
"should I use this $500k to help struggling parents and pregnant people or should I put it in a glass box"
I’ll stand and make you remember the time you chose to use money as an some sort of twisted “art form”, instead of taking care of the children unwanted pregnancies put in foster care.
Every time you look in the mirror and see how your nose is still crooked, you can remember how you passive aggressively demanded rights for fetal cells and avoided taking responsibility for forcing women to create a life they did not want and/or could not care for.
Kids in the system get a pretty shitty hand and you’re choosing to flaunt pennies around reminding them that they were forced into existence and left to “thrive” instead of offering help to give them a life they actually want.
So who exactly should be denied their right to choice and which “definition” do you prefer,
"Hypocrisy", "Specious" or maybe even "Sanctimonious" (if you want ‘some’n reeeal smart-like’)
Because those are a few of what comes to mind for what you’ve “created” for yourselves here.
