I'm Abner, your friendly neighborhood Alfalfa Scout.
If I were to describe the new wave of cartoons, namely Adventure Time, Steven Universe, Gravity falls and the like, in one word it’d be healthy.
I’m constantly wowed by how meticulously healthy and sensible the relationships and discourse are for the characters. Like I’m actually hopeful for what younger people learn and keep with them from watching these shows.
people be like “are you really going to miss out on a potential friendship just because someone doesnt share your views on feminism/racism/etc.” and i’m like “ya lol”
i ‘m pretty sure that a friendship by definition is about treating each other equally, so it wouldnt be possible with someone who doesn’t see me as a human being
