We don’t disrespect American Girl in this house Don’t you dare disrespect Addy, or any of my girls for that matter. American Girl used to be legit. Good stories, good dolls, good movies. Felicity’s story was set in the beginnings of the American Revolution, and addressed the conflict that she faced when her loved ones were split between patriots and loyalists. It also covered the effects of animal abuse, and forgiving those who are unforgivable. Samantha’s stories centered around the growth of industrial America, women’s suffrage, child abuse, and corruption in places of power. Also, it emphasises how dramatically adoption into a caring family can turn a life around. Kit’s story is one of my favorites. Her family is hit hard by the Great Depression, and they begin taking in boarders and raise chickens to help make ends meet. Her books include themes of poverty, police brutality, homelessness, prejudice, and the importance of unity in difficult times. Molly’s father, a doctor, is drafted during the Second World War. Throughout her story, friends of hers suffer the loss of their husbands, sons, and brothers overseas. Her mother leaves the traditional housewife position and works full-time to help with the war effort. They also take in an English refugee child, who learns to open up after a life of traumatic experience. American Girl stories have always featured the very harsh realities of America through the years. But they’re always presented honestly, yet in ways that kids can understand. They just go to show that you don’t have to live in a perfect time to be a real American girl. Dont you fucking dare disrespect the American Girls in my house. ESPECIALLY Addy!! That was my first REAL contact with the horrors of slavery, as I read about her father being whipped and sold and her mother escaping with her to freedom, but also how freedom was still a struggle. A slave doll. Please. Read the books. Don’t forget Kirsten, the Swedish immigrant who had to deal with balancing her own culture and learning the english language and customs of her classmates, or Kaya (full name Kaya'aton'my, or She Who Arranges Rocks) , the brave but careless girl from the Nez Perce tribe, or Josefina, the Mexican girl learning to be a healer. And then there are the later dolls, that kids younger than me would have grown up with (I was just outgrowing American Girl as these came out), like Rebecca, the Jewish girl who dreams of becoming an actress in the budding film industry, or  Julie, who fights against her school’s gender policy surrounding sports in the 70s, or  Nanea, the Hawaiian girl whose father worked at Pearl Harbor. These books, these characters, are fantastic pictures into life for girls in America throughout the years, they pull no punches with the horrors that these girls had to face in their different time periods, and in many cases I learned more history from these series than social studies at school. And that’s without even mentioning the “girl of the year” series where characters are created in the modern world to help girls deal with issues like friend problems, moving, or bullying. We do NOT disrespect American Girl in this house. American Girl is probably going to be the only exposure young girls are going to get to history from a female perspective. This is actually kind of important considering that in history classes we dont really get that exposure. We dont hear about what women felt and endured during these time periods cause schools are too busy teaching us about what happened from the male perspective, which is not unimportant, but we need both. Girls need both. These books were such a crucial part of my childhood and shaped my love of history, which still ensures today. These books can be a young girl’s first lessons in diversity and cultural awareness (hopefully burying that insensitive “we’re all Americans” tripe) and looking at history from more perspectives than just that taught in school. They also are an example of how women have ALWAYS been part of history, which some people would rather us not believe. I think Kit and Kaya were the newest American Girls when I started “aging out” of the books, but hearing about some of these kinda makes me want to revisit them! I wasn’t gonna say anything, but you know what? Nah. OP (of the tweet thread) was either a actively trying to start shit or is just a huge fucking moron. Probably both. I’d like to point out that the company that makes American Girl dolls actually doesn’t skimp when doing their research and they don’t make the dolls with the intent to be offensive in any way: I loved American Girl growing up they’re great role models and history lessons so yeah let’s not cancel this for ignorant reasons : clover11-10: breezeinmonochromenight: star-linedsoul: razzleberryjam: ironwoman359: chaos-in-the-making: smugkoalas: allthefandomss: that-catholic-shinobi: gahdamnpunk: American Girl stories were the best tbh Dude, read the books, she and her mom freed themselves in Book 1.

Social Interaction 401: fanboyingduringteatime stephendann spookyhella casually call people "human" to unsettle them and make them question what sort of being you are re psychoanalyze me#and i turned on him and hissed dont presume patably baffled and terrified an wa and i felt powerful and celestial ll was well Oooh! I have done this a few times One of my favorites is when a religious converter type comes up to me when I'm sitting around. Because they usually have a cold open like "The Lord has called me to you" replying with "Indeed He Has My Child, for He is Pleased With Your Work, and wishes you to know that you are known to Him". Throw inflections into the wrong points in words, but do it with a very calming presence. After all, you're the SMS from the afterlife, you're merely the vessel of the vassal, and nothing scuttles their plans faster than trying to have to process that this very calmly spoken person who InflEcts their words JuiSSSSt quite not riGHt is acknowleding them in an uncomforting way Once they leave, watch them until something blocks the line of site, and then move like lightning to not be there when they glance back. (This is why there are probably some really good rumours in Adelaide about me) I remember this guy once who tried to dare me (the nerd of the group) to do something or another to prove my "manliness" I calmly replied "How cute of you to think I'm human..." and kept walking He stared at me in confusion and when I was several meters away I heard him say "yeah...good point."

iamtheaardvark: aboutreciprocation: …holy shit None of the characters ever figure this out because they stop taking math at age 11 : What are the biggest plot holes and errors in Harry Potter? Hannah Yang 75.3k Views Here's one of my favorites, and it doesn't even involve magic... According to Hagrid, there are 17 Sickles to a Galleon. Sickles are made of silver, Galleons are made of gold. Simple enouglh But here's the thing about silver and gold in the Muggle economy: the ratio fluctuates. The price of gold and the price of silver are constantly changing. In fact, the gold-to- silver ratio is a tool many people use to determine when to buy these metals. Before 1900, the ratio averaged around 16:1, which seems to reasonably parallel wizarding standards. Throughout the twentieth century, though, the ratio has averaged around 45:1 So if you're a wizard in need of money, here's what you'd want to do. Wait for a time when the gold to silver ratio is really, really high. Take all of your gold Galleons, melt them down into lumps of pure gold, and sell them in the Muggle economy. Use that Iuggle money to buy as much pure silver as you can - you'll get an enormous bund of it, since the gold to silver ratio is so high. Finally, take that silver back to Gringotts and get it all minted into Sickles. If you want, you can even exchange them back to Galleons at the fixed 17:1 rate, and feel smug over the fact that you now have over twice as many Galleons as you started with Profit. It's a sweet, sweet thing iamtheaardvark: aboutreciprocation: …holy shit None of the characters ever figure this out because they stop taking math at age 11
