Beautiful, Fire, and Girls: microcosmicqueen: rosymamacita: i-want-cheese: awkwardblacknerd: I still think Moana deserved an Oscar for this part To me, the moral of Moana is that only women can help other women heal from male violence.  The movie starts with the idea that the male god who wronged Te Fiti must be the one to heal her. This seems to make a certain sort of intuitive sense in that I think we all believe that if you do something wrong you should try to make it right. But how does he try to right it? Through more violence. Of course that failed.  It was only when another woman, Moana, saw past the “demon of earth and fire” that the traumatized Te Fiti had become (what a good metaphor for trauma, right?) and met her with love instead of violence that she was able to heal. Note that they do the forehead press before Moana restores the heart, while Te Fiti is still Te Kā. Moana doesn’t wait for her beautiful island goddess to appear in all her green splendor before greeting and treating her as someone deserving of love. Moana is only able to restore the heart because Te Kā reveals her vulnerability and allows Moana to touch her there. Maui and his male violence could only ever have resulted in more ruin. Also important that it was the GIRL who returned the heart to Te Fiti. She wasn’t a woman. She was a GIRL. The innocence and strength of GIRLS before the world turns them hard and steals their hearts is a power in its own right. If this is a metaphor for abuse and healing, it’s the woman who gets back in touch with her own youthful power, her potential, her hope, who finds peace and recovery. If we imagine this as Te Ka’s story, it is remembering her youthful strength that returns her heart and lets her become herself again. I have cried every time I see this scene of the movie (I have a 5 year old sister, I’ve seen Moana dozens of times lol) and I was never really able to articulate why it just gets to me so much and this is exactly why.

 We've bought a new house. And our new next door
 neighbours (two delightful gentlemen) will not stop being
 nice
 - bought us a seagull proof refuse bag (yes, they are actual
 things)
 - loaned us garden tools when we didn't have any
 invited us around for Friday night drinks so we could meet
 the other people on the lane
 - one of them brought me a bunch of sweetpea flowers that
 he'd picked from his garden
 - and tomorrow he's coming to cut our hedge for us with
 his electric hedge trimmer thing idk, and all I have to do is
 hold the ladder
 Basically, I am UNSETTLED and am now having to enter
 into an arms race of niceness and I am already so behind
 oh god
 Long story short - I just baked a lemon drizzle cake, and it
 looks great but I can't even eat it because MR AND MR
 NICE MUST RECEIVE AN OFFERING
 ABSOLUTE CRISISI GAVE THEM THE LEMON DRIZZLE
 AND THEN THEY INVITED ME IN TO HAVE A SLICE AND A
 COFFEE WITH THEM AND GAVE MEA TOUR OF THEIR
 HOUSE AND LET ME HOLD THEIR PUPPY. AND THEN

 CLIPPINGS. THESE MEN ARE NICENESS PROS AND I
