cecil has a trueform that he is horribly self-conscious about and had no intention of showing carlos ever but you know things happen
after the initial screaming, hyperventilating, and trying to shoot cecil with the revolver he’d taken to carrying, carlos decided that this was p fucking cool goddamn science

Saying Hello to the Dragon.
hey new followers hey and welcome
judging by the recent influx of asks, yall probably signed on expecting non-stop or at least 90% adoption industry child trafficking ethnocidal transracial transnational weaponized realness
and as such most of you are likely thrown for a loop when i blog about popular media and representation
but pro-tip: for adopted kids who grow up raised in white households away from our cultures and countries of origin, books/films/TV/fictional characters are often the ONLY opportunity we have to regularly interact with people who look like us or at least aren’t beige as hell
you should know how important media representation is for children of color. well It’s even more crucial for adoptees of color who don’t even get just ONE family member who shares our ethnicity, much less our culture, much less our DNA
So when I blog about media & fandom made and/or starring POC, it’s absolutely relevant to the whole kyriarchy clusterfuck that is the “global orphan crisis” and international adoption industry
Yours in eternal ingratitude*,
brandx on the importance of media representation for kids who are transracially adopted.
this makes me remember a thing me and my mom were talking about this morning…
Some of our relatives adopted a girl from Guatemala, and, a number of Christmases ago, my family gave her one of the American Girl type dolls with Hispanic coloring, the closest match for hers. And she just looked at us and said. “This doll looks like me!!!” An like. Her parents obviously had never play with a doll that looked like her before.
It made me super sad.
i never understand why non-white characters can’t just be described as fucking brown
they gotta be caramel, mocha, dark chocolatey, cocoa, whatever nonsense
can we start describing white characters with food terms too? “her milk-white arms.” “his light mayonaisse face.” “her hair was the color of dijon mustard.” yeah. sounds about right.
I think that would be kinda cool, actually.
I’ve been… trying… to avert the food-colored-people thing, but so far that’s resulted in (when I bother to describe a not-pink/white colored person’s skin tone, but need something flowery and poetic) comparing them to clay……………….
>:( if someone wants to help me find something less awkward/potentially insulting, please do; I’m super unhappy with the compromise.
