Take your place in the ritual and enjoy these 23 Turning Red memes
A film about puberty set in peak Y2K? I’m in x
Okay, so I unironically love Turning Red. I swear I don’t often sit around watching kids’ shows and films, but something about this new Pixar instalment had me hooked.
First and foremost, when do teenage girls EVER get to see themselves represented properly on screen? We were wild, teary, anxious, angry balls of hormones who were constantly hyper-aware of our looks and easy to embarrass. Starting our periods and being picked on at school were our worst fears, and this film captures that perfectly.
So, try not to spontaneously turn into a giant red panda, sit back and enjoy these 23 memes about my new fave Pixar film:
1. Take that, critics
Turning Red is unrealistic, when I was 13 I did not live in Canada.

4. Obsessed with Mai’s mum
Don’t think this is a spoiler, but—idk that I *ever* (as a teen) saw anything depict women’s health and care (mental & physical) with the normalcy #TurningRed does.
There’s something revolutionary to that level of transparency about adolescence being HARD. pic.twitter.com/HScLJ6ew0l

If Turning Red took place in 2012 instead of 2002, these girls would run Tumblr like the fucking Navy pic.twitter.com/F5CZld9iz9

9. More films about girls being loud and taking up space pls!
Seeing older white men say they didn’t like “Turning Red” because it wasn’t relatable and the girls were “obnoxious” fills me with a deep sense of joy
lmao GOOD. pic.twitter.com/eFCiVx1Q19

Turning Red was a brilliantly animated, aggressively sincere, highly relatable story about coming of age, self realization, generational inheritance, and GIANT FLUFFY RED PANDAS THAT I WANT TO HUG UNTIL I LITERALLY DIE
— Scott Frerichs 🏳️🌈🐯 (@KaiserNeko) March 14, 2022
15. I think this 100-minute-long film was a personal attack
y’all did not tell me one of turning red’s themes is daughters’ complicated relationships with their mothers like i really cannot take this emotionally rn 😭

19. Personally, I never left my teenage phase
turning red has revealed that a large portion of our society thinks 13 year old girls are these docile little flowers when in reality they’re some of the most unhinged motherfuckers

the red panda in turning red is a metaphor for the natural female bodily process of becoming canadian

the people who hated Turning Red for being too “narrow” and “specific” are gonna go cream themselves when Lightyear comes out because everyone of course can relate to being an astronaut!

22. Oh right x
“Turning Red is unrealistic because 13 year olds don’t have weird obsessive crushes on-“
When I was 12 my friend helped me code an entire website so I could write anonymous love letters to the guy who played Marius in our local high school production of Les Mis
