Omg I just got an exclusive meet and greet with Nash Grier and Sam Pepper at my school
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.

things not to do with people who have selective mutism
- pressure them to speak
- praise them and make a huge deal when they do speak
- say shit like “i can’t help you if you don’t speak to me!!!!”
- intentionally exclude them because they don’t talk
- punish them if they don’t speak
these are like the most counterproductive things you can do
