This scene is SO important. Maleficent is with someone she trusts, someone she considers a friend. And then the next thing she knows, she wakes up in pain, bleeding, with her wings burned off. A huge part of her has been destroyed.

Rape is so prominent in our culture that it is in a Disney movie. Maybe not explicitly, but it is very clear what this scene represents and it is so sad.

I fucking cried my eyes out during this scene

AJ even confirmed that this is what this scene was a metaphor for (x) - just because i saw someone say today that this is not what this scene is about

'We were very conscious that it was a metaphor for rape': The actress explained how the scene in which her character has her wings ripped off her body while in a drug-induced sleep had to be something 'so violent and aggressive' that it would make her 'lose all sense of her maternity, her womanhood and her softness' 

when a man violates a woman, he cuts off her wings.

I think this last line is so important: when a man violates a woman, he cuts off her wings

Quote 28 Sep 82 notes
She was slender as a cypress tree. Her eyes, like those of a gazelle, could have pierced a thousand hearts with a single unexpected glance, yes, with one flicker of her eyelashes she could have slain the whole world. To look at, she was like an Arabian moon, yet when it came to stealing hearts, she was a Persian page. Under the dark shadow of her hair, her face was a lamp, or rather a torch, with ravens weaving their wings around it. And who would have thought that such overwhelming sweetness could flow from so small a mouth. Is it possible, then, to break whole armies with one small grain of sugar? — Nizami, Layla & Majnun

Listen: Idris Elba’s ‘Look With Your Ears’ Music Mix Vol. 1.

I’ve known about Idris Elba DJ’ing under the ‘Big Driis’ moniker for some time now, but after having heard his attempt at being a crooner on the mic, I put aside any interest in his music abilities so as to keep my lust-filled dreams of him alive. However, I’m a believer in second chances and with this new electronic-soulful-house mix, all is not lost for him musically.

Thoroughly diggin’ it.

Like any piece of clothing, the hijab isn’t one size fits all.
Women around the world choose to wear — or not to wear — a headscarf or veil for many reasons.
A few studies have found that modest clothing is connected with a healthier body image. So Swami and one of his graduate students looked at whether the hijab protected women against the pressure to be thin.

Text 26 Sep 108 notes يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اجْتَنِبُوا كَثِيرًا مِّنَ الظَّنِّ إِنَّ بَعْضَ الظَّنِّ إِثْمٌ وَلَا تَجَسَّسُوا وَلَا يَغْتَب بَّعْضُكُم بَعْضًا أَيُحِبُّ أَحَدُكُمْ أَن يَأْكُلَ لَحْمَ أَخِيهِ مَيْتًا فَكَرِهْتُمُوهُ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ تَوَّابٌ رَّحِيمٌ

talldarkarab:

O you who have believed, avoid much [negative] assumption. Indeed, some assumption is sin. And do not spy or backbite each other. Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his brother when dead? You would detest it. And fear Allah ; indeed, Allah is Accepting of repentance and Merciful.
(49:12)
