Jake’s best Tina impression.
Seriously, Rugrats was not fucking around.
People don’t give Rugrats enough credit for how progressive it was. I mean think about it.
- Chuckie, for most of the series is raised by a single father
- Angelica’s mother was a high ranking corporate executive
- Phil and Lil’s mom was a feminist
- She also breastfed them (which the show actually depicted)
- Tommy is half-Jewish and the show actually explored this part of his heritage
Seriously, this show was fucking amazing!! They just don’t make ‘em like this anymore….
Also don’t forget that Chuckie had an interracial family after the second movie.
How are you guys forgetting Susie? I mean her mom was a doctor and her dad was a writer for a famous Children’s TV show. Not to mention Kimmie was anything BUT submissive.
Remember when they had episodes that hit hard to issues kids might be dealing with? Chuckie only had his Dad on Mothers Day, Tommy had to deal with being outshadowed by a new baby brother, Phil and Lil were constantly being mixed up and then they had a couple episodes where they each found that even as a twin they were their own people.
Man Rugrats was the shit.
Tatjana Plitt is journeying across the country and photographing military families to demonstrate that the so-called Defense of Marriage Act hurts real couples and real families. This couple, for example, Ashley and Liliana, recently welcomed a baby boy into the world, Brice. However, even though Ashley is on her son’s birth certificate, DOMA prohibits her from receiving the “paternity” leave that any other military spouse would receive in the event of the birth of a child. Reblog this photo or click the heart to stand with Ashley and Liliana, and check out all SEVEN amazing portraits.
