Jodi I’ll tell you what, as a professor of religious studies, you can tell me anything you’d like about Disney World and the research you do there – absolutely anything, anything, any subject of Disney-related research is prohibited. From one American to another, I not only give you permission to exercise your freedom of expression, I actively encourage it. In fact, I really must INSIST that you tell me, tell me everything you came here to say, tell me all the reasons why you need to stop and desist from pathologizing adult Disney fans – all fans adults of Disney of course, but today those adult Disney fans in particular: those who are currently going viral, who have surprised their wedding guests without dinner or bar because they have spent the food and drink budget for Mickey and Minnie Mouse celebrity appearance fees
Thanks, I’ll hang up and listen.
I regret everything I said and I don’t want to stick to it anymore. I want to cancel my 1st Amendment subscription. In fact, this thread has challenged my entire core belief in free speech – I can identify “‘kid stuff’ is demeaning to kids who are savvy humans themselves” as the exact moment when I stopped believing that anyone should be able to say whatever they want, whenever they want. I mean, I was just lectured over 30+ tweets about how I should be inclusive and respectful of grown men crying over Goofy setting off fireworks in a magic kingdom. Obviously, we cannot allow this to continue.
As for the “Am I the asshole?” marriage question – yeah, I mean, yes of course you’re the asshole. How are you laughing at me? OBVIOUSLY. You brought people in for your wedding and then didn’t feed them or serve them drinks so you could use all the money to pay MICKEY AND MINNIE MOUSE TO STOP.
Jodi, all due respect, but I’m a blogger and I’m here to tell you that this wedding deserves to be completely and utterly trashed in this Facebook group until the end of time, and the bride and groom will be pathologized by anyone who wishes. pathologize them and it probably won’t be hard enough to pathologize. There are enough special interest groups with special feelings that need to be handled gently and spoken to gently. I draw a hard line on adults obsessed with cartoon mice. Sometimes weirdos are just fucking weirdos, it still exists.
If you ever find yourself speaking or typing the words “there were 2 vending machines” in defense of your marriage, apologize to everyone for your shitty marriage.
