"As somebody who’s suffered with depression, isolation and abuse since childhood, I felt like I should’ve been able to relate to Elsa a lot, but I actually find it very difficult to. Mostly because I really want to see more of Elsa’s personality, besides her depression and anxiety. I think they should’ve given her some kind of hobby so that we know how she coped with being alone for all those years, and so we could get more of an insight into who she is. Besides the anxiety."
My major issue with Elsa: her character is repeatedly thrown in your face as only anxiety, depression, and isolation. A character like this deserves to have a well-rounded personality because mental disorders cannot and should not serve as placeholders for personalities.
edit for reference: before anyone jumps on my case, I’ve suffered from these things for years. but I like things, and those things are a part of me, like sailor moon and the 1950’s and painting and sleeping and baking pies.
that’s also why i don’t see her appeal. she doesn’t seem to have a personality outside of the plot’s whims; she’s almost a macguffin character. she’s more a blank slate with a vague problem, so people can project their problems unto her and that’s why she’s so “relatable”.
she’s basically a self-insert character for the audiences. compare it with anna, who has a well-defined personality with her own likes and thoughts and doesn’t show only one aspect of her.
could be why she’s less-popular than elsa; the “relatable” factor is less founded in her

Just days after a national campaign was launched to highlight the effects of casual racism in Australia, this appears. Racism is far from being a thing of the past. Racism is alive and kicking today. Absolutely no doubt about that. And y’know, whites are proud to say that British invasion was necessary and justified. They are proud to state that the genocide that was committed upon Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples was necessary, too. They are completely and wholly proud to be treating us as sub-human. Whites are proud to be the descendants of murderers and invaders. This is now and it’s terrifying. Stay safe everyone. We are living among these people.
"derp/herp derp" is ableist stop fucking using it, it is a term that originated with making fun of kids with down syndrome and being like "ha ha derp face:-P" and it has been used against disabled people for so long after that, please stop using it, get mad at people that do use it, please
