Riding in the backseat of a 1975 Oldsmobile made me feel nostalgic for a life I never lived during a decade I wasn’t born yet.

Riding in the back of my friend’s car, on the way to the beach, I caught this moment of total happiness and love in her expression as she laughed about something her boyfriend had just said.

I can’t stop smiling and am grateful that this exists.

This scene is SO important. Maleficent is with someone she trusts, someone she considers a friend. And then the next thing she knows, she wakes up in pain, bleeding, with her wings burned off. A huge part of her has been destroyed.

Rape is so prominent in our culture that it is in a Disney movie. Maybe not explicitly, but it is very clear what this scene represents and it is so sad.

I didn’t know others thought this too. I find a bit of comfort in knowing it’s not a totally f*cked up connection to make. However, it is also unnerving that it isn’t a totally f*cked up connection to make. It means there are so many women, too many women, who identify with the emotions in this scene. It unsettles us in a way we weren’t expecting it too.
