where is asexual?
Are we seriously so ashamed to say straight/hetero on tumblr we have to use the word ally now? Is straight really that fucking offensive? ISN’T THIS WHOLE POST ABOUT DON’T BE A FUCKING DICK BASED ON SEXUALITY BUT ALL PEOPLE CAN DO NOW IS BE A DICK TO HETS?
Because these posters are referring to LGBT bullying and “ally” is a term for a heterosexual who supports the LGBT community. It’s not trying to suppress straight people it’s trying to include them, but straight is too broad because there are straight people who don’t support the LGBT community but would still claim to be against bullying, and that wouldn’t properly represent the cause.
La Muerte (the character) is based on the Mexican Catrinas used during the Day of the Dead, and many women who dress up as the Catrina draw the nose holes on their noses like that to emulate the skull through make-up along with the colorful markings. The sugar coating on the “skin” is to show that La Muerte is made of candy, which emulates the candy skulls that are made for the festival of the Day of the Dead, and the candy skulls have those colorful markings on them as well. It’s also cool to notice the Cempasúchil flowers on her dress and hat, which are always present during the festival.
These are some of the reasons as to why I have mad respect for the details that are being given to these characters <3
Reblogging for the info, that’s pretty rad.
as a mexican i can say that all the details are amazing and all the references in the movie are just perfect.
may i also include that the little heart on her forehead is the Sacred Heart, representing the religion (christian) in the country teached by the spaniards which is really important in the mexican culture.
there are more details in the rest of the characters and in the movie itself. i suggest for non-mexican people to do lots of research before watching the movie to catch more little details in it, specially information of the Day of the Dead.
