I just LOVE the animation here. The part with just their hands looks real. And I love the way Gothel’s fingers go from motherly gentle touch to creepy and evil. Beautiful

#I really apprecciate this gif#because when you’re in an abusive relationship often nothing seems wrong until you try to stand up for yourself#that loving pat tranforms into a claw when she defends herself#but really it was a claw all along(via)

Tangled actually did a better job capturing an emotionally abusive relationship than most other things I’ve seen. And I don’t just mean when Gothel kidnapped her and lied to her about who she was. It was everything. She kept Rapunzel with her by cutting people out of her life and destroying her self-esteem. She puts her down and doesn’t allow her to feel confident at all. Recall when Rapunzel states she thinks Flynn likes her, Gothel blows her off with, “But just look at you. You think he’s impressed?” She also constantly makes Rapunzel feel responsible for everything that goes wrong. When they get in the argument in the beginning, Gothel victimizes herself and does her best to make Rapunzel feel guilty for asking her for a simple favor. It’s so textbook. And immediately after anything, she treats Rapunzel by promising her favourite soup and reminding her, “I love you most” to reel her back into that false sense of security.
And back to the animation of how she didn’t notice the maternal and loving hand was actually a malicious claw until she realised she was in an abusive relationship. Basically, Tangled is a really important movie, and the fact Gothel is so familiar to those of us who have experienced abuse is good because children are going to watch this and look for Gothels in their own lives.

Watching Tangled helped me realize I was in an emotionally abusive relationship.

If you’re on the east coast and you haven’t seen Steve Harvey on the Tonight Show yet, you need to turn it on NBC right now because I have never laughed so hard, and you have to see it.

There will be some new summonings, and to go along with that, we could even see a potentially-epic battle take shape that puts front and center Regina (Lana Parrilla) and the Snow Queen (Elizabeth Mitchell).

darthsavior replied to your post: darthsavior said:(We should stay …

Cool, I understand what u were saying, tx for expanding. As for those who’ve not stopped, Idk if I’d characterize them as irrational (u werent), hell I still watched parts of S3. We all ‘still love’ the characters. Makes it hard to not get involved:

I agree with you, people’s feelings about it aren’t irrational. Everyone has the right to not be happy. I am actually not happy that Regina and Snow scenes continue to be cut. But I’m going to express that by saying, I don’t understand why they keep making the decision to cut those scenes. I would have rather seen Regina and Snow bonding a little, than the fifth scene we had of Hook upping Rumple, who upped Hook, who upped Rumple, who upped Hook. It’s fine that it was not a Regina episode; maybe that scene didn’t fit the narrative. Whatever the case, I would like it if they could stop teasing us with cut scenes and give us some actual canon.

Which is so different than a post I won’t link back to, and won’t call anyone out on by user name that basically called the show trash now and if they were Lana they would quit. Okay???? Am I supposed to respect that thought process? Do people know for a fact that Lana is that pressed? She made one post on twitter that said sadly she wasn’t in this week’s episode much and suddenly she must hate her job?

Sigh.

(We should stay away from anything about the actors imo, so total agreement there) Don't you think it is perfectly valid to intelligently critique or discuss problematic aspects of a show you once loved? I get not complaining for the sake of it. I for instance don't watch and don't engage in dialogue about the show anymore after how toxic it has become. But I feel like, if it was meaningful, I should still be able to make a few points about whatever issue arises. Thoughts?

Absolutely, 100% But there’s:

'Fuck this show.'

And there’s:

'Here's the issue I'm having' and discussing it in a logical way.

It’s the ‘intelligent discussion’ that is lacking on my dash. Because ‘I FUCKING HATE ___________ UGH TOO MUCH’ is not a valid discussion, and putting words in Lana’s mouth is even less valid. I’m glad we agree on that last point.

Not everyone is as logical as you - not everyone has stopped watching when they don’t like it. And maybe this is because I’m not in the ‘once loved’ camp and am still firmly in the ‘still love’ camp, but if that many people don’t like it I don’t understand why they subject themselves to it.
