asking for straight pride is like asking for able bodied parking spaces

thats a really good comparison because there are about seventy able bodied parking spaces to one disabled and able bodied people still insist on using the ones that arent theirs

this is seriously a great post

Anonymous sent: you're probably just those fucking stupid tumblr social justice police trying to justify yourself -- how can you even be already analyzing moana when you don't even know what polynesian culture is like.?ugh, gtfo.

sifu-korras:

Nobody’s trying to justify anything, I was merely stating my thoughts, or is that not allowed anymore?

By the way, this is me:

Fairly Polynesian if you ask me. 

HEY-OH *spirit fingers*

As a minority whose race is going to be represented by a company who doesn’t have a shining track record in terms of POC representation, I think I have a right to be concerned and rather nit picky. 

Is it a crime to make sure any of these cultures — whichever ones are showcased in this movie — aren’t being exploited in any manner? Because Polynesian refers to more than one culture, multiple really, whose differences people don’t see. I could not tell you the number of times I had to explain to someone what Samoan was and they reply with, “Oh, so you’re Hawaiian?”

Audiences need to know that Polynesians are way more than a group of people supposedly living in a “tropical Hawaiian paradise.” We are more than ukuleles, grass skirts, and coconut bras. We are more than the flower and kukui leis round our necks; the seis adorning our hair; our frickin sick tattoos.

As an Islander living in a place where I am constantly mistaken as Asian or Hispanic because nobody has ever heard of Samoan or Tongan or Tokelauan, Fijian, Niuean, and all the rest, you had better believe that when my people are given the chance to be represented, I am definitely gonna be there, making sure everything is done right

Perhaps, since they’re talking mythology and whatnot, Disney’s gonna make Moana of the Lapita people, who are the ancestral Pacific Islanders. Who knows? I do know this: I can voice my own opinion with how Disney dishes out culture on this film, seeing as it’s my own.

this is fuckin it right here, y’all. “”polynesian”” is a western concept too, which is a founding problem in the film’s supposed portrayal OF “”polynesian”” mythology because it’s homogenizing similar but ultimately diverse cultures. Oceania as a whole (so polynesian, micronesia, and melanesia for those that recognize those colonial terms) have similar cultures among the myriad islands because of a history of navigation and interaction with one another (here the Samoan tatau/tattoo from Fiji comes to mind). so when Disney is saying Moana is a “”polynesian”” princess, they obviously haven’t really done their research because polynesia itself is a western construct/label imposed on islanders. them using this label echoes the homogenization that was done in pocahontas and it DEFINITELY doesn’t make me excited, as a fellow Samoan (CHEEHOO, btw - malo lava, madame-fussybritches! glad to see more islanders concerned about this) 

i could break this down more (and in fact might on animatedactivism soon HMMMMMM) but don’t come at islanders who’re concerned about this movie. we, indeed, have every right to be since our representation in popular media ranges from invisible to complete horseshit.

my tags for female characters I love are often like “my queen” and “actual goddess” but my tags for male characters I love are often “my baby” and “this child” because men are babies and women are ethereal beings
