 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 46m
 the show stands on its own even though it's a legacy production. noelle didn't
 want to be held back by fear of changing too much. she was prepared for
 negative backlash, but hopes that if legacy fans give the new show a try, they'll
 recognize the core spirit of the show
 7
 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 44m
 noelle sometimes gets e-mails from young kids who love her work (because they
 don't have twitter), as well as their parents, and it's super important and cute and
 good
 7

 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 41m
 "it's important to have a lightness... and freedom to [what we make] so we're not
 just dumping sadness and suffering on our audiences."

 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 38m
 noelle doesn't know what discord or tik tok are
 8
 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 31m
 "[netossa and spinerella] are a couple... slightly older. they have their own life
 outside what these teenagers are doing, and the teenagers don't understand it
 because they're doing their own thing. they have a lovely house somewhere... but
 the teens are not as perceptive."
 9
 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 29m
 "[netossa and spinerella] have a stability to them [while] our younger characters
 are often so messy and melodramatic and their feelings run wild, but these two..
 their presence is reliable."
 8
 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 27m
 in the original netossa doesn't have powers, she just has nets that she throws on
 people
 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 24m
 "[adoral is a little bit of a glutton for punishment in some ways... that's HER. she's
 kinda ready to get her butt kicked, yknow? she's like, i'm the only one who's
 gonna get hurt right now.
 8

 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 23m
 "adora had her world view challenged in 1.11 in a way that she never had. the
 idea that adora always thought she was doing the right thing for catra, and
 realizing that catra actually had resentment, i think that rattled her hard, to her
 core

 9
 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 21m
 "and so, adora's emotional state and mental-well being is tied to how powerful
 she is as she-ra. as soon as she starts letting her insecurities take over, she ra gets
 less powerful, especially when she's alone
 8
 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 20m
 "she is so distracted that she's kinda taken out by this fight with catra."
 8
 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 20m
 "[adora's] looking to be punished in some way."
 7
 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 18m
 "adora's fatal flaw [is] taking agency... to try to protect [catra specifically, but also
 everyone]. she is self-sacrifical!... but it shows a lack of faith."
 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 18m
 "[adora] really wants to take every single bullet."

 the writers planned the 'stronger together idea for cultural relevancy

 "production began in earnest in 2016. this was not an accident. it's an escapist
 fantasy... .but it still comes out... we're putting our own feelings into almost every

 struggles being expressed."

 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 13m
 noelle has always had a big interest in villains, and related to them very much.
 BUT she realized, making this show "that was the fantasy, the idea of the
 complicated but sympathetic" isn't close to "real world villains who lack empathy
 when they hurt people and take away rights"
 5
 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 12m
 "even hordak is a fantasy, like, what if these were the villains that we faced, these
 complicated shades-of-grey... that's the escapist version. the pain of a real-world
 person is... how could you THINK that? how could you DO that? and there's not
 really an answer

 "the rainbow iconography is no accident.

 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 4m
 "it's even more than the ships, the pairings... here is a WORLD, where queer
 themes are so interwoven into the fabric of the show that they exist on every
 level, even if they're not made explicit. obviously there are still barriers, but these
 themes... can't be removed."
 7
 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 3m
 when noelle pitched the rainbow thing at the end of the battle, an exec was like,
 "what's the point?" and noelle said, deadpan, "it's the gay agenda"
 6
 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 3m
 "this isn't a secret.. or something i'm ashamed of. it's a big part of what the show
 is. it's bigger than ships. it's about showing a world where this is just a part of
 normal life."

In 2017, Betches' revenue exceeded $5 million, Forbes estimates. So blessed. So moved. So grateful. BUT REALLY. We know it’s not typical for us to get personal in an instagram post but for anyone who’s ever wondered what goes into this account and the company behind it we’ll break our rule this one time. When we started Betches we had literally no idea what we were doing or what we wanted to get out of it. Being a female entrepreneur was not necessarily the “trendy” and exalted path that it is now, and lots of people, especially men told us along the way we couldn’t get to where we are bc we didn’t have this this or that, or do things the traditional way, or have the same vision as they did. Well, it’s true we didn’t have money, or mentors, or any business education between the three of us, and ya, we said fuck a lot. We hope that we can inspire any young woman out there who currently doubts herself and wonders if she’ll ever be able to do it (whatever it is) - the answer is yes, you can. We’re so thankful to our team and all the work you’ve put in to help us get here. Let’s fucking drink. @samifish @aleen @jordanaabraham

Fucking, Life, and Love: copperbadge When I first got out of grad school, I couldn't get a job in my chosen profession and honestly, I wasn't sure I wanted one, but what else was I good for? I was iving with my parents, I felt that l'd failed at the age of 24, and I knew exactly how to kill myself in the most painless way possible, because I was considering it and had done research. I had clinical depression and I didn't figure the rest of my life would be worth a damn even if I managed to make something of myself which seemed unlikely Fifteen years later, I woke up in a home I own, that I painted myself, with two big couches and ten big windows and a lamp that looks like a star. I fed two kittens, cooked breakfast and prepared lunches for the week while listening to podcasts, and tended my windowsill garden where the paprika have fruited, the bromeliad is still trying to murder the poppies, and the squash are starting to blossom. My email inbox was full of messages from people I love. My duties for the day are discharged. I plan to spend Sunday resting, playing with my kittens, and maybe strumming a little ukulele. Today is my own to do with exactly as I like in a place I have made exactly to my specifications. I can't guarantee that everyone who feels like they're dying at 15 or 21 or 24 or 29 will get this life that I got. I know I've been lucky, and even with luck, my life's not perfect. But I'm 38 and today is such a good day that I can't believe I almost didn't get to have it because I thought my life was over at 24 It was a fucking war to get here, but the war was worth it, so. I just figured today was a pretty nice day to share that. Some hard years, a good day.

Being Alone, Children, and Facebook: THIS LATINO MARINE VETERAN'S LIFE'S WORK DESTROYED BY ZUCKERBERG'S CENSORSHIP AGENDA You are probably wondering, where’s your favorite @unclesamsmisguidedchildren Facebook page? One of the largest Veteran-owned patriotic brands and Facebook Pages was censored by Zuckerberg and the silence is deafening from well known Conservatives. That’s right, Facebook took down our 2.2 million follower page. It is owned by Latino Marine Veteran Rick Ferran, also known as “Tank”- a nickname given to him by his followers. Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children If you understood the amount of time, money, and heart invested in the creation of Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children, you would only begin to feel what Rick and his team have felt over the years.
