I went to the Renaissance faire dressed as a warrior. I had a real sword with me, too. I was standing (in character) next to a sword-fighting ring, where kids of all ages got the chance to pick up a sword and challenge the champion. Some woman walks by, with her little girl. The girl starts walking towards the ring, saying she wants to fight. But the mom pulled her away hella sharply, and was like, “That’s for boys.” You don’t want to be a BOY, do you?” And the girl looked around and saw me. I think she thought I was a boy; I had my hair in a ponytail, and was wearing a hood. So she comes up to me and asks me, “Do you think girls can be fighters, too?” And her mom looks like she’s silently gloating. Like she thinks I’m going to say no. So I take off my hood, untie my hair so that it flows freely, and kneel before her. And I’m like, “Milady, anyone can be a fighter.” I swear, the look on that mother’s face made my day.
This post was good but then it got better
very into charts about naps
This is very useful for when I go back to uni.
"No, professor, I was not sleeping, I was taking the NASA nap."
narcissa malfoy was probably the most powerful occlumens in hogwarts history and nobody knew
she literally stood up to lord voldemort and lied that harry potter was dead and i don’t know about you but if i were an evil ruler i would probably want to triple-check that my nemesis was, you know, actually deceased
voldemort had actual doubts about snape
narcissa swans on by without a whisper, without a second glance
is this a disney movie
the only domestic instinct my parents have managed to pass on to me is the tendency to hoard multiple plastic bags in another plastic bags despite the fact that I will probably never need this many plastic bags in my adult life

"Mr. Moony presents his compliments to Professor Snape and begs him to keep his abnormally large nose out of other people’s business…" can we please talk about the fact that Moony was literally around the corner while the map was insulting Snape. And he 99.99999% knew it was going to happen and he probably laughed himself to sleep that night and whispered a thank you to James, Sirius, and Peter for thinking to put that wonderful little defense mechanism in.
food should be free. water should be free. housing should be free. power, fuel, electricity should be free. basic necessities should be free.
the idea of “people should have to work for a living” carries the implication that some people deserve to die
And if that is hard for you to think about, know that it is harder to live in it.
I am so exhausted by people who do not think this is a problem. I carry a pocket knife, a whistle, pepper spray, and a very sharp self defense keychain with me where ever I go. I look around each corner with a tight stomach, and try to keep my eyes open and darting with consistent awareness. Staying vigilant when going anywhere is a part of every day life for me. And with good reason. The examples I have from just my life alone that support this cautious behavior are countless.
Saying it’s not a problem doesn’t make it go away. It keeps it alive.
Don’t tell me that I’m lying. That I haven’t been catcalled, whistled at, followed, pinched, prodded, felt up, mugged, and sexually assaulted. It is real and all too common and has affected more of my life than I’d care to admit, most of the time. And it is not and has never been my fault. I’m going to talk about it. I’m going to fight you on it. Because if you think it’s not an issue, you’re wrong.
If men don’t have to be aggressive, women won’t be compelled to be submissive. If men don’t need to control, women won’t have to be controlled. Both men and women should feel free to be strong. It is time that we all see gender as a spectrum instead of two sets of opposing ideals. We should stop defining each other by what we are not and start defining ourselves by who we are.
i remember one time the simpsons made a joke about fox news and they got so insulted they tried to sue them but the court was like “this aired on ur network u can’t sue urself”
