Steven cries openly and that’s important.
Steven is the main character of the show, and is around the same age as the show’s target audience (7-13) on CartoonNetwork so in many ways her resents of the age group they are trying to get to.
And he is often shown, crying, usually reacting to something that’s upset him greatly, it seems 100% natural responds for a young kid like Steven, right?
So if its so understandable and natural, why is it important that Steven openly cries and doesn’t seems to be ashamed about show his emotions?
It’s because that show is meant for kids from 7 to 13 and it is unbelievable rare to show an main character, a male main character, openly crying like Steven does.
Even if a male character is going to toward something horrible, it’s more often they are shown with a single heroic tear or simply never show them crying.
In a culture that often tells boys at a very young age that crying is weak and girly. It is highly important to show Steven, a character young boys are suppose to relate to, crying and reaction to things emotionally in a heathy and age appropriate way. It’s highly important to show young boys that showing emotions does not make them weak,
It’s also important is talk about Steven’s emotions are handled by the show too. Steven is never called a crybaby or a weakling because he cries or gets upset. Everyone in Steven’s live (included the show itself) treats Steven’s feeling seriously, they are never shown as small thing that don’t matter.
Steven shows kids that it’s okay to cry when you are upset, it does not make you weak. Steven still does heroic things, and he’s still a funny happy little kid, even if it means he gets emotional sometimes.
So yeah, Steven cries a lot and it’s really important.

Daft Punk AU where everything’s the same except they both joined the Best Friends Forever Club and have the rings to prove it
If you listen to the end of tangled…. Rapunzel and Eugene didnt get married until several years later
same with Aladdin and jasmine!
And Belle was trapped in that castle for months with Beast; I’m pretty sure at least a year.
Also Tiana and her prince were together as frogs for an indeterminate length of time before they married.
Tumblr gets schooled by the Disney fandom
Also let’s not forget Aurora was betrothed (which uhh, was a thing and some places still is).
Cinderella had to be locked in her home away from her prince whilst she knew he was looking for her.
I love how no one is trying to defend Ariel and Snow.
When Ariel was permanently turned back into a human by her father, we don’t know how much time passed between that day and their wedding.
Snow was under the sleeping curse for at least half a year. Remember the lovely commentary animated films used to do? At the end of the film, it states, “The Prince, who had searched far and wide, heard of the maiden who slept in the glass coffin.” Additionally, it shows changes in season.
And finally we don’t even see a marriage between The Prince and Snow.
And, we can’t forget Anita. We see their first meeting—well, happy accident planned by Pongo—and their initial connection. In movie-verse, as it is with the others, we don’t know the amount of time between this and the wedding and in the context of the story it isn’t the main point.
Are you okay, Tumblr?
do you ever forget that you’re a real person
All of the orgasms in fic are so violent. His orgasm came like a punch to the gut. It hit him like a mack truck. It knifed him in a fucking alley. What these orgasms need is a good education.
