Okay, this is actually what you do if you’re being sexually harassed in any kind of public space. Draw attention to it, preferably pull away and let EVERYONE know that someone is touching you. This will not only get him to get off you but he’ll definitely think about this situation next time he wants to do something like this.

Spreading the word.

My mom and I were talking about this today after hearing about a woman who was molested on a plane who said nothing until she was picked up at the airport by her parents. My mom looked at me and asked what I would do in that situation and I looked her dead in the eye and I told her “it would take me .02 seconds to realize what was going on and yell angrily, and then I would be straight on to bitch slapping him so hard he wouldn’t be able to see the punch I’d throw with the opposite hand”.
She nodded and accepted my salty language like a seasoned sailor.
I’ve had experience with this before, in Prague a group of five girls and I were followed by three men at night. After a while they started yelling at us, the most common being “how much?” Meaning how much we “cost” as prostitutes. Seeing as they weren’t going to stop, I turned on my heel, faced them (which surprised them), spat at their feet and responded with “You couldn’t afford me.” This prompted the other girls to start yelling back at them as well, starting with our spitfire Czech friend to start slinging curses in Czech as she and the rest of the girls came up beside me. Needless to say the men backed off and pretty much fled. They weren’t expecting a fight. It empowered me and encouraged the rest of the girls to yell back too.
I’ve heard that a lot of people don’t know what to do in this situation because they’ve been taught all their lives to be polite and non-aggressive. Keep your heads down or whatever.
Keep in mind that studies have shown that rapists look for victims who won’t fight back.
Remember that nobody has the right to touch you without your consent or harass you, and you have all the right to make the biggest fuss about it that you can possibly make.
Get angry. Be in command.

FUCKING RELEVANT

I’ve seen this post on my dash a couple times and I just need to RANT. First off, don’t act like this list is such a big fuckin deal, compare it to the list of white leading ladies and tell me this list is good enough. Then think about the characters that are actually given attention (in terms of marketing, merch n face characters and stuff.) the list dwindles down to four or five (and thats being generous.) Thats just insulting. 

I adore these ladies. And it infuriates me that they’re largely ignored by the fandom and are now being used to make stupid arguments like this one. WTF. When some fans ask for equal representation, you don’t respond with “look, we already have these WOC. Take them and be satisfied.”

Also, the whole world isn’t divided into “white” and “not white”.

You have double digit white leading ladies.

You have one Chinese character.

You have two Hawai’ian characters.

You have one indigenous character.

You have one black character.

You have one Latina.

You have one rroma character.

Kida is of a fictional race and Jasmine is a homogenization of several different ethnicities.

So, no, the idea of “1 and done” does not fly here. 

Plus Jasmine, Chicha and Esmerelda had white voice actresses so that’s not exactly progressive on the casting front.

why do people use this really annoying formatting style almost exclusively for racism apologism ?? geez 

like wow thanks some princesses from the 90s and early 00s guess it’s chill to have a billion white princesses in a row and never even talk about it

HA, So make your own damn movie studio and produce your own damn shit and see if it sells. No one cares anymore, white people are getting fed the fuck up with all this ungrateful whining . Always asking white people to give you their shit .. go get your own, bye.
