*i used to have a "this blogger is...[x]-positive" thing here, listing things i support and post frequently about, except i realized that it was akin to a disclaimer, and i don't want to issue warnings about myself.
so instead, hey: this blog often contains unapologetic support of a spectrum of aspects of the human condition. you can deal with it or see your way out.

alright now i used to hate pitbull because it seemed like the right thing to do but you know what i never hear him doing fucked up shit. as far as i know he is really just out there living life ,enjoying himself, visiting walmarts, and spreading the cubano party into the hearts of everyone around the world, he is mr. world wide and hes having a blast and i respect and love that pitbull. pitbull if youre reading this thank you and im sorry
Ha ha sometimes I ask myself the same thing as op and I even remember seeing at interview of his (like on MTV tr3s or something like dude) a looooong time ago and he was talking about how he’s some lil Cuban boy from Miami with a dream and he was so proud of his success (at the time it wasn’t really that much tbh) and im always like aw hes so proud and as a Hispanic american i can totally relate but then I remember literally every live performance I’ve ever seen of his is your typical “male musician objectifying women” like I kid you not about 50 of them at a time all in lingerie like bish wuh stop but his songs are also pretty misogynistic (as is typical in the genre I guess so w/e) so that’s the long and short of what I think about pitbull

cOACH SAID TO
AND BrEAK LEFT
and with all that said i bring to you here today the first highlight of the dumpster that is season 3, 19 episodes in.
there are a lot of things i wanna put out there (might include spoilers?).
i’ve frickin loved sabrina all my life and i grew up watching the later seasons and i recently decided to watch the entire thing again, because there were certain elements of the plot that i vaguely remembered thanks to reruns, that i felt i could appreciate much more if i watched them all in order and now that i’m older, i.e. quizmaster stuff and the family secret (which i actually have always been super proud that i remember). but damn is this show problematic. as a disclaimer i’ve only rewatched up to season 3 so far.
i was young when i used to watch it and i didn’t really start learning about stuff (i.e. representation, racism/cultural appropriation, sexism, and what they REALLY mean, etc.) til like three or four years ago, plus a lot of the more blatantly problematic scenes or episodes (e.g. sabrina dressed as a geisha in one opening, the family has a korean themed dinner in another… libby’s Signature Black Friend i fucking kid you not they just replace the actress with another nameless black girl like they’re interchangeable i was like wAht!!…) i don’t even remember watching because when i used to watch, they were airing like the last two seasons and the reruns i remember watching from the first few seasons… well they just weren’t those episodes. like i had never seen the one where sabrina for some reason decides to take up kung fu (it’s literally called sweet and sour victory) but i’m hoping that was a conscious decision on someone’s part!
for as problematic as it is it does offer a majority female cast, all amazing and well-written and strong characters (yes, even valerie) at that, most with supernatural powers (badass!!!!!!!!) and for what it counts POC witches are present in the Other Realm… but unfortunately it doesn’t count for much at all. even the “female cast” thing isn’t enough to redeem it sometimes…
but with all that said, i still love the shit outta this show (even tho season 3 has been a huge frickin bummer so far because the episodes are just rly shitty plotwise) for what it is (magic is fucking awesome) AND because it offers many examples of issues that ought to be criticized and discussed in media, back then and still today, so you can take the good with the bad.
