So this is what trust looks like.

Funny, my first thought was “So this is what the patriarchy looks like.”

Yup. This is how women are supposed to trust men. With their lives.

Woman : “Hey, can we just… Drop the bow?”Man : “WHY DON’T YOU TRUST ME I’M NOT A VIOLENT GUY, YOU ARE INSULTING ME THINKING I WILL HURT YOU!!!”Woman : “No it’s just… Well I’m afraid.”Man : “But why? Look at me, I’m not afraid. And we’re equal, look, we pull the bow together.”Woman : “I think we’re not equal, you can kill me with the arrow and I can’t.”Man : “What? So you would like to be able to kill me? You’re so agressive!”Woman : “That’s not what I mean, we were talking about equality : you can hurt me, I can’t.”Man : “Of course you can. You can hit me with the bow if you want.”Woman : “That’s not the same thing, it will never kill you.”Man : “Oh, you always complaining, stop victimising yourself! Do I talk about the difficulty of holding the arrow? Of the responsibility it giving to me?”[…]Etc, etc.Every debates about gender equality, ladies and gentleman.


omg the comments.  Brilliant.

#WTF  #so fucking tired of this shit 
spoken-not-written:

oopsphan:

darlinghogwarts:

In the books, Hermione’s boggart is failing her classes. Her greatest fear is failing her classes.
However, it goes a lot deeper than that. Subconsciously, I think she believes that if she does not do well and if she fails, they’ll kick her out of Hogwarts and the Wizarding World. So her real fear isn’t failing.
At Hogwarts, she has two wonderful friends who love her, and she is getting to live in an incredible world. She doesn’t want to lose that, and she thinks that if she does bad in her classes, they won’t let her come back.
Her real fear is rejection and loss.

so what if…
when in the philosophers stone her line “we could be killed, or worse.. expelled” wasn’t her being snooty or a teachers pet..
but her saying that she would rather die than stop going to hogwarts and never see her friends again?

why

she didn’t have any friends at that point though…

Gay Apple customer handed receipt with ‘f@g.com’ on it
A gay Apple customer claims he was given a receipt with a homophobic slur on it.
Adam Catanzarite bought a pair of earphones at a store in Portland, US, but when he checked his receipt he noticed ‘f@g.com’.
The alleged slur appeared where the customer’s email address usually goes.
He posted a photo of the receipt on his Facebook page and wrote: ‘So here’s a thing. I got called a f@g by an #Apple employee here in #Portland.
‘The store manager did not do what he said he would to rectify the situation, so now I feel it is important to share the story.
‘Being queer and having worked with queer youth, I know first-hand that this is an example of the type of #homophobic beliefs and actions that lead young people to harm themselves. This type of action is NOT OKAY, especially from a company that prides itself on being LGBTQ inclusive and welcoming.’
He continued: ‘My friends, I please ask that you like this status or share it with your networks to let them know that #homophobia does not have a place in PDX (or anywhere) and that you reconsider where you spend your money. Perhaps the #Applestore is not so deserving.

That’s crazy Cause I live in Portland. Time to go to that apple store looooooool.

okay but when you have holocaust survivors and people who were activists during the civil rights movement supporting mike brown and then KKK members and neo nazi’s supporting the officer you should be able to figure out which side is the right one.

Anonymous asked: That list you reblogged about the Harry Potter villans who are more interesting than Snape is just wrong. Ugh I can't even. How are any of them interesting? I don't know who Regulus Arturus Black is (is he Sirius dad?) but All of the other characters are boring and one demensional and their stories aren't nearly as fascinating as Snapes.


Answer:

marauders4evr:

I don’t know what I should be more offended at. “Sirius’ dad” or the fact they you don’t think that these characters are interesting. Now I will admit that Snape’s story is interesting as well. The psychological analyses that can be done on that man…but thess other characters are just as/perhaps even more interesting in their own way.

Let me passionately break the list down.

-peter pettigrew (!!!)

Peter! How can you not be fascinated by Peter? The true example of how fear can push you to do terrible things. For a decade, Peter had three amazing friends who he practically worshipped. But he was overcome by fear and gave into Voldemort, ultimately betraying his friend (and his friend’s family) and framing his other friend. Can you stop for a moment and imagine the sheer mental strain…the pressure…the breaking point…the snapping…the fear…the anger…the guilt and confusion that this man faced?

-narcissa malfoy

Holy crap I love Narcissa. If you don’t think that this woman is interesting then you are 100% wrong, sir. I mean, there she was for five books, scarcely mentioned. Then WHAM the sixth book comes along and she’s scared for her son and she makes Severus protect him because he’s just a boy. And all of a sudden, you have a parallel. You have a marvelous parallel between her and Molly. I can’t even begin to describe how amazing this parallel is. All of a sudden, we see Narcissa as a mother. She may be a villain, sure. But above all, she’s a mother who just wants to protect her son. And if that doesn’t make her badass enough, she looks into Voldemort’s red eyes and declares that Harry Potter is dead. Lying to the Dark Lord (the master of lie-defection) with just a few seconds of preparation. Narcissa Black. Is. A. BAMF.

-gellert grindlewald

We don’t know much about him. HOWEVER do you know what makes him great? The fact that he was a hero in his own mind. Dear god, I love the whole notion that every villain is a hero in his own right. And he was. He plotted all of the greater good stuff because he wanted to be the hero, the savior, of the wizarding world. He was horrendously wrong and hundreds of people suffered but again, it’s psychologically interesting. Forget Voldemort-Hitler parallels. Grindewald was the closest to Hitler. How is that not interesting?

-barty crouch jr.

Just the thought of Barty being controlled by the Imperius Curse for years by his hateful father is interesting. Let alone all of his actions and his horrible fate which wasn’t mentioned in the movie at all (along with dozens of other things).

-horace slughorn

Slughorn’s motifs are always interesting. He isn’t villainous, per say, but he certainly is greedy and manipulative. I’d be lying if I said he was the most interesting character but he had his moments. And never forget that, despite being the head of Slytherin, he stayed to help fight the Death Eaters. That’s just amazing. 
-kreacher the house elf

Sweet Merlin’s trousers, let’s talk about Kreacher! I don’t know where to start. Should I talk about the disgustingly fascinating way that house-elves have to obey their masters and the parallels of slavery IRL? Should I talk about how it probably never occurred to him that the Black family values are wrong and he accepted their views without question. Should I talk about the way he blindly worshipped his masters? Should I talk about the fact that he tried again and again to destroy the locket because Master Regulus told him so but he couldn’t and imagine how horrible he must have felt? Not to mention: house-elf army!

-dolores umbridge

Man even Umbridge is interesting in her own way. Umbridge is the combination of that horrible teacher and horrible authority figure that abuses their power with little regard to the feelings of others. She verges on the line of psychopathy while still wearing pink and smile. How the heck are you not fascinated up this woman?

AND FINALLY

-regulus black

Not Sirius’ father but rather his brother, who was a year younger than him. Whereas Sirius rebelled against his family, Regulus gave in to the beliefs and pressure. He was the perfect son. He got sorted into Slytherin. He became a Death Eater. Until he saw just how far Voldemort was willing to go to achieve his means. And what does Regulus do? At the age of eighteen, he attempts to destroy one of Voldemort’s horcruxes. Quietly. Passively. He wasn’t looking to be a hero. He wasn’t looking for the attention and admiration. He just wanted to do the right thing. So he sends his house-elf to safety and is horrifically killed. When’s the last time you heard THAT story?

In conclusion: JK Rowling really knows how to write a variety of characters. Also, my thumbs hurt from typing all of this out on my phone.

THIS! While I certainly believe Snape was definitely interesting, there are plenty of other characters I wished we had more info about. I can’t even imagine how Regulus must have felt. First, he probably felt that, after his brother rebelled, he was obligated as the younger son to step up and be the son his parents wanted. I can even understand him actually being excited at first to join the Death Eaters, because at first they probably didn’t start killing everyone. I just wished we could’ve seen when he realized that he didn’t actually wantto be a Death Eater. Also, he couldn’t have been the only Death Eater to have a house elf(any would have been able to do the job), so it makes me wonder how high up in the ranks Regulus was. When exactly did he become disillusioned by Voldemort and his followers? I can’t imagine how terrified he must have felt when he stole the horcrux, and knew when he tried to leave he was going to die. Regulus is so fucking interesting. He was never a bad person. He made a mistake, and died trying to fix it. If that means he’s not 3-dimensional and interesting, then i dunno a character that is.
