Oh shit I just thought about what it would be like if Cass got her period for the first time and LITERALLY NOBODY KNEW WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT.
Babs and Steph were busy so it was Cass and all the Robins and Broose and it’d be like horrible because she would skulk around being like I. am. dying. must. get. affairs. in. order.
and she’d go find everyone and hug them individually and scrawl out who gets what onto a greeting card and like Bruce would find her separating her Spongebob pajamas because Damian could fit into the shirt and Steph could fit into the pants and he’d be like what’s going on and she’d just look at him sadly and he’d see the stains and he’d be like NOOOOOOPE
And Dick and Jason would kind of awkwardly try to explain to her because they were the only adults in the mansion, dammit (Alfred and Leslie are quite mysteriously disappeared with one of the Bentleys) and Tim’s like audible keyboard smashing and Damian still thinks Cass is legit dying and he tries to comfort her and doesn’t seem to understand why Todd’s face is going red and he’s making odd grunting noises that might have been laughter but this was no laughing matter
and eventually Bruce calls Selena and she takes care of that shit and poor Cass oh my god.
The problem with this commercial is not that the girl simply wanted to look whiter for beauty reasons, but because her color was holding back her career! The message here is: success=white. And that, is without question VERY racist. The woman herself said in the commercial “the obstacle to obtain my dream job was my skin” … had she been born white (or “fair”) she wouldn’t be obstacled…
So if you’re not fair, you’re fucked.
