“Hufflepuff house is haunted by the Fat Friar, who was executed because senior churchmen grew suspicious of his ability to cure the pox merely by poking peasants with a stick, and his ill-advised habit of pulling rabbits out of the communion cup.”
so i'm doing a little social network-y experiment which involves knowing the most popular (meaning most members in) the fandoms of different networks! so if you could reblog this by December 25th (christmas day) and add a tick mark next to the fandom you're in! if yours is not on the list please add it with a tick mark next to it indicating you're part of the one you've added! that's all and thank you so much!
the fact that a girl being a feminist is a turn off to a lot of guys is just further proof that sexism exists they’re literally saying they don’t want a girl who requires respect because that’s just no fun
“It saddens me to see girls proudly declaring they’re not like other girls – especially when it’s 41,000 girls saying it in a chorus, never recognizing the contradiction. It’s taking a form of contempt for women – even a hatred for women – and internalizing it by saying, Yes, those girls are awful, but I’m special, I’m not like that, instead of stepping back and saying, This is a lie.
The real meaning of “I’m not like the other girls” is, I think, “I’m not the media’s image of what girls should be.” Well, very, very few of us are. Pop culture wants to tell us that we’re all shallow, backstabbing, appearance-obsessed shopaholics without a thought in our heads beyond cute boys and cuter handbags. It’s a lie – a flat-out lie – and we need to recognize it and say so instead of accepting that judgment as true for other girls, but not for you.”—“I’m not like the other girls”, Claudia Gray (via fantasticremus)
"I’m so co…." I spot a dad smiling in the distance. I think for a second. "my name is cold,” I say instead. suddenly the dad explodes and there is no more joking now. I sit on my throne of dead fathers for the rest of time
