I’m rereading the circle of magic books and man there’s a lot of good stuff here like multiple positive lesbian characters (admittedly implied at first but it gets explicitly confirmed in a later book), multiple positive characters of color, characters pulled from multiple social classes and family backgrounds
Racism is a thing but it’s drawn along different lines than real world racism (not sure if that’s good or bad). Sexism is a thing but it’s not presented as the default or only option (there’s a lot of casual ‘girls can’t do x’ from one of the young male characters, and one of the later books focuses on a societally approved rape culture practice, but there are also a ton of positive female authority figures both as characters and as background texture).
The main characters experience ptsd and other effects from their adventures (again more explicit in later books) and lose none of their positive presentation from it.
It details the bonding of a chosen family.
And of course the base idea of the whole thing is finding the spectacular in the ordinary.
A lot of good stuff. There can always be MORE good stuff. But I like that tammy was just casually doing this throughout my childhood and like nobody noticed. Thanks for putting good things in my brain, tammy.

So, you could afford glasses, but not a shirt?
Well I can’t see without them so yeah I sort of have to wear glasses to function.
If I choose not to wear a shirt it’s because I feel like not wearing a shirt, not because I cannot afford it.
How about you reblog the thousands upon thousands of pornographic material with topless woman in it and ask them if they can afford clothes.
Oh wait, that wouldn’t be a problem would it, because a woman can only be topless if it’s in a sexual scenario.
Ooooooo shiiiiiit that reply tho
