I love how the Addams Family has ZERO slut-shaming. Like… honey you can dance naked and enslave someone with your womanly charms if you want to, I don’t fucking care, but so help me you’re going to get a college education first.
The Addamses are what every family should aspire to be like (you know; without the dismemberment and electric chairs as play time). Honestly, have you ever seen more unconditionally loving and supportive parents than Gomez and Morticia? And not just with the kids, but with each other. I think what’s especially unique about them is how open they are with everything. They don’t treat their children like children. They treat them like they treat everyone else; direct, and to the point.
I HAVE to reblog this…
It’s creepy how many good examples of parenting and romantic relationships there is in these characters, especially considering they are supposed to be the antithesis of the stereotypical American nuclear family.
“April just sort of loves this big goofy guy, and he just loves her and the fact that somebody like her would appreciate him. That’s something that real love is actually based on — in real life, love is based a lot on finding someone who loves you and accepts you. There’s nothing more attractive than somebody who just loves you for who you are. Andy doesn’t feel like he has to be somebody else around April. He can just be himself, and she loves it. That’s a quality about someone that you can’t help but fall in love with.” - Chris Pratt
