I was glad to see this post about Clarence blowing up last night! Yessss. Watch Clarenceeee.

But I have another great thing I wanted to point out! While the show hasn’t quite passed the Bechdel test yet (his mom ordering lunch doesn’t count), there’s still some very positive touches. So far, when he’s given an option Clarence almost always goes for the feminine-coded choice. He favors the color pink! Even Sumo was totally content with playing with the girl toy by himself. 

Also, Clarence is totally enthusiastic about making friends with girls! And considering how well-written and realistic Amy was, I’m excited to see the other kids too. There’s no “others”-ing going on here. 

I know it doesn’t seem like much, but even little things like this can be encouraging for kids who like things outside the gender binary, or want to make friends without feeling the ever-present pressure of romance that permeates all other media. This stuff makes a difference! Heck, I remember being told in elementary school that blue couldn’t be my favorite because it was a “boy’s color”.

It’s just.. this kind of representation is nice, and it makes me happy to see the change that children’s media is making.

Not one major Hollywood studio has released a computer animated feature starring a black character.
