the anti vaccination movement basically consists of random people with no knowledge of medicine going “I can medicine better than doctors” and it would be hilarious if it wasn’t literally killing people

Can somebody break this down for me? Why’s it so powerful? What exactly is it saying?
Wow, this is great! I never really thought about it this way before, but it’s actually true. And it makes me feel really bad for all the Cinderella haters out there (I know they exist, there was that one article by the mom who doesn’t like Disney Princesses and dislikes Ella most of all).
I think we’re so used to Disney girls getting a prince as part of their happy ending that we confuse this with wanting a prince from the beginning. (I know “Cinderella” is bigger than the Disney version but it’s what I am familiar with, so let’s focus on that XD)
Cinderella isn’t dreaming some impossible dream. She wants to be treated decently and have the chance to find her own happiness. And even in the bad situation she’s in, she does her best to be cheerful and good, because she has faith things will get better.
Cinderella is denied the status of her birth (forced to work as a servant for her stepmother and stepsisters) and mistreated, and clearly isolated from everyone else but the family (she’s making friends with mice and birds, come on). She dreams of a better life, but she tells her animal friends that she “can’t tell” them what she’s been dreaming, because if you tell a wish it won’t come true. Aside from this, she’s pretty practical, though.
"I know it isn’t easy," Cinderella says to her dog, knowing that he’s been dreaming of chasing her stepmother’s sadistic cat, "but at Ieast we should try to get along together."
And in fact, she doesn’t actually ask for a night off and dress. If things had gone as Ella wanted, she would have gone to the ball with her stepmother and stepsisters because she finished all her chores and updated her birth mother’s old gown to fit her. Ella’s not asking for anything when her fairy godmother shows up — she has stopped believing in the power of dreams almost entirely at that point.
Her godmother tells her she can’t go to the ball like this (all dressed in rags and crying), and Ella says “The ball? Oh, but I’m not—” and her godmother says of course she is.
"Even miracles take a little time."
Her godmother isn’t there to machinate things so Cinderella can marry a prince. She’s there to restore Cinderella’s faith.
And it works.

Hey Auburn students,
I’m not sure how much truth there is to this, but there was a threat written on a bathroom stall in Lowder that threatened a shooting on campus tomorrow (April 16th). No matter how true or false this threat is, everyone please be safe on campus tomorrow, okay?
do not fall in love with people like me.
i will take you to museums, and parks, and monuments, and kiss you in every beautiful place, so that you can never go back to them without tasting me like blood in your mouth. i will destroy you in the most beautiful way possible. and when i leave you will finally understand, why storms are named after people.
Calm down John Green
'do not fall in love with people like me'
don’t worry i won’t
That last comment
not sure why people don’t automatically say “shapeshifting” when asked what they want their superpower to be. you could become anyone you want. even fictional characters. anyone. cosplay would always be spot-on. dysphoria wouldn’t exist. perfection
