aethelflaedladyofmercia: Ok like I think people are forgetting something very important about JKR.Namely, she did not make up this stuff after the fact. Back in the day, JKR was extremely open about the fact that there was tons of lore behind the scenes she could not address in the books. She couldn’t address it, btw, because it was a known fact in the publishing industry that young adult novels had to top out at like 250, maybe 300 pages because kids didn’t have the attention span for anything longer. And early HP was middle grade, which is the next age category down. She was only able to start addressing deeper lore halfway through the series because that’s how long it took to convince her publishers it wouldn’t scare readers away.(I distinctly remember another, long-established children’s fantasy author dedicating a book to JKR because the success of HP was the reason said author was able to negotiate an extra 100 pages into that novel.)In the mean time, she was in a ton of interviews. She was absolutely the most open author about her worldbuilding. If a fan asked her a question and the answer wasn’t a spoiler, she answered it every time. JKR was famous for this. She was worshipped for it practically. I remember on the early internet boards, when one fan had the chance to meet her in a Q&A we would all pile together and come up with as many questions as possible. Ask what year Beauxbatons was founded. Ask who the ghost of Hufflepuff is. Ask McGonagall’s age. Ask Lily’s maiden name. Were all the Marauders in Gryffindor? Which of Gilderoy Lockheart’s stories were stolen and which were flat out made up?We collected these interviews, we held them as canon, we altered our fanfic to accommodate what she revealed. And then, all of a sudden, that wasn’t what the fans wanted any more. When she finished HP, she said she was done, that she’d move on to other projects. No one wanted any of her non-HP stuff. No one cared. So she came back to build the Fantastic Beasts verse, with exactly the same policy about answering fans that we had welcomed back in the early 2000s.So, like, you don’t have to enjoy what she’s doing. The fan community has changed, and that’s fine. But JKR contributed a lot to the children’s fantasy genre and to the way fandom operated, and we should at least acknowledge that. : Only start creating a lore after you already finished half of the series and keep adding stuff a decade after finishing it Steal 90% of your deep lore from real life history and other authors to fill out your world map Create an entire universe with a bloody, theological history with hundreds of characters and dozens of devastating wars, then write a childrens book in it aethelflaedladyofmercia: Ok like I think people are forgetting something very important about JKR.Namely, she did not make up this stuff after the fact.

She eventually convinced me to give it a try, which I did mostly just to get her to stop bothering me about it. I had seen a girl walking around my college campus a few times wearing elf ears, so I thought, if I have to have a friend, that's the one I want. I approached her one day at lunch and started a conversation about the ears. As it turns out, she told me one of the reas- ons she wore them was as a conversation starter to help her make friends. I told her it worked and asked her flat out if she wanted to be friends because social interaction is hard and I didn't know how else to go about it. Well, it turns out my therapist was right. The elf-ear girl was my maid of honor when I got married last August, but I had to ask her not to wear them during the ceremony. :) Reply 3.9k This is wholesome in the true sense.

srsfunny:Driver Admits He Has No Idea What Co-Driver Is Talking About: Rally driver admits he has no idea what co-driver is talking about Top British rally driver, Mark Fischer, today found himself at the centre of a storm of controversy after confessing that he had absolutely no idea what his long-term co-driver, Gethyn Davis, was talking about during races It had been assumed that co-drivers were reading 'pace notes', a series of instructions describing how to negotiate the road layout ahead, but Fischer claims the notes are total nonsense' and that he has simply been humouring his co-driver all these years. 'I's just gibberish,' he said. 'But the regulations say that there must be two people in the car at all times during the race, and Gethyn was a good mate so l always just took him along for the ride Davis is reported to be furious at Fischer's statement and maintains that they were equal partners in the team, but Fisher has been quick to dismiss this Oh, come on,' he said. ' mean, '50 5left and stop 2-right half minus braking into K-right 90 maybe and absolute crest 500%. What the hell am I supposed to make of that when I'm flat out over a jump sideways at 90mph?" This is not the first time Fischer has courted controversy over the role of co-drivers. In 2009, after finding himself without a co-driver for the Jyvaskyla Rally in Finland, he kidnapped a homeless man and forcibly strapped him into the passenger seat to ensure that the two-people-in-each-car rule was complied with. The stunt only came to light when onboard footage taken during the race revealed that rather than reading the 'pace notes', the Finnish co-driver was in fact screaming the words 'Oh shit!' over and over again, occasionally interspersed with other phrases including, 'Watch out for that house' and Slow down, you mad bastard srsfunny:Driver Admits He Has No Idea What Co-Driver Is Talking About

masked-up: yellow-anonymous: masked-up: masked-up: Quick how-to A lot of comments criticising this post have popped up, I realized the problem and I’ve fixed it. Two wrongs don’t make a right. Assault is still a crime. It doesn’t matter if the person being punched is a “”“Nazi”””. What are you talking about???Lets say I can punch one of two people. My first option is this innocent old lady. My second option is this man wearing a flag, a face mask and making a specific gesture with this hand. Can you tell me the big difference between these two people? One of them is innocent and has never harmed anyone, the other is a fascist who supports either mass deporting all Muslims and non-whites, or flat out killing them. One makes cookies and one makes Nazi salutes, one goes to bingo and one went to prison for getting in a street battle in Dover. So it does matter if the person I punch is a Nazi, yes its still assault but its the Why he got punched that makes the difference. I’d never punch an old lady, but I’d very happily deck a fascist or Nazi, because they’re racist they’re nationalist they’re dangerous. It matters a great deal who is punched, and why. Of course if you’re completely against all political violence you’ll never see any punches thrown as good ones, you’ll never see it as a right only a wrong. Despite the consistent examples of violence or the threat of violence working to get rid of fascists and Nazis, because your morals will never allow it. : How TO TALK TO NAZIS masked-up: yellow-anonymous: masked-up: masked-up: Quick how-to A lot of comments criticising this post have popped up, I realized the problem and I’ve fixed it.

Three serial rapists in 3 weeks arrested in Oklahoma, all cops. Follow for Anarchy | Follow for Feminism Pro tip: if you’re signaled to pull over (whether you’re male or female) and you’re in a place that has no witnesses, turn your hazard lights on to acknowledge the officer’s siren, and drive to the nearest gas station or populated area. This is accepted protocol by every agency. You are not obligated pull over until you can do so safely. This includes personal safety. Understand your rights, brothers and sisters. There are disgusting examples of authority in this world. HAZARD LIGHTS ARE NOT AN ACCEPTABLE ACKNOWLEDGEMENT. IT IS NOT ACCEPTED PROTOCOL BY EVERY AGENCY. DO NOT JUST CONTINUE DRIVING WITH YOUR HAZARD LIGHTS IN CASE THE COP MIGHT THINK IT’S A LOW-SPEED CHASE. I know that sounds dumb, but hear me out. My mother is a dispatcher for the local police station. I asked her about how to pull over for a cop and even brought up the use of hazard lights, and she told me that it is not always accepted. This is what she told me you can do in order to feel safe when pulling over: Call the police. No, really. Call and tell the dispatcher where you are and that there is a cop behind you demanding you pull over. The dispatcher can and will stay on the line with you while they look up the area you’re in to see if it’s one of their station’s cops. Then, once the cop comes to your window, you can crack it open (it only has to be an inch!) while still on the phone with the dispatcher. This is definitely, 100% accepted protocol. The dispatcher will verify that it is their own, real cop, and they will gladly stay on the line with you throughout your interaction with the officer. And God forbid this ever happens to any of you, but if something were to happen to you during this time, you’ve already contacted 911 and given your location to the dispatcher. Please keep this in mind if you are ever requested to pull over and do not feel safe. The dispatcher will understand. Do not, however, continue to drive, because there might be the off-chance an officer will think you’re flat-out refusing to pull over (a well-lit, populated area might be a ways away). Stay safe. Signal boost. Because I personally know some creepy ass mother fuckers who became cops because they’re demented psychopaths and they get off on having control over people. In light of current bullshit, this might be a good idea for a LOT of people, not just women. Marginalized minorities of all stripes, take note. I hate taking up an emergency dispatcher’s resources, but i also hate seeing yet another fucked up news story about police harming citizens. : Ladies,İf you don't want toget rapedbya cop then follow the law in the first pace so you dont get pulled over."

And God forbid this ever happens to any of you, but if something were to happen to you during this time, you’ve already contacted 911 and given your location to the dispatcher. Please keep this in mind if you are ever requested to pull over and do not feel safe. The dispatcher will understand. Do not, however, continue to drive, because there might be the off-chance an officer will think you’re flat-out refusing to pull over (a well-lit, populated area might be a ways away). Stay safe. Signal boost. Because I personally know some creepy ass mother fuckers who became cops because they’re demented psychopaths and they get off on having control over people. In light of current bullshit, this might be a good idea for a LOT of people, not just women. Marginalized minorities of all stripes, take note. I hate taking up an emergency dispatcher’s resources, but i also hate seeing yet another fucked up news story about police harming citizens.

Do not stand with PP Oh wow, you guys are still trying desperately trying to paint Sanger as a racist huh? Okay, if you’re gonna flat out lie like this you can at least try not to be lazy about it. You’ve given no context to this quote and conveniently left of the first half of it. The sentence in it’s entirety is “ “We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population.” I know you manipulated it that way because you wanted to make Sanger seem as evil as possible, and also because literally the only thing pro lifers know how to do is lie, but admittedly the full sentence by itself looks damning enough. I think you know this, which is why you provided no context. If you had, your entire argument would have fallen apart. Here are Sangers words with context; “It seems to me from my experience where I have been in North Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee and Texas, that while the colored Negroes have great respect for white doctors they can get closer to their own members and more or less lay their cards on the table which means their ignorance, superstitions and doubts. They do not do this with the white people and if we can train the Negro doctor at the Clinic he can go among them with enthusiasm and with knowledge, which, I believe, will have far-reaching results among the colored people. His work in my opinion should be entirely with the Negro profession and the nurses, hospital, social workers, as well as the County’s white doctors. His success will depend upon his personality and his training by us. The minister’s work is also important and also he should be trained, perhaps by the Federation as to our ideals and the goal that we hope to reach. We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.” The article I linked goes into better detail about Sanger, the so called “Negro project”, and the lies spread about her by the pro life movement. I encourage you to read it the next time you feel like spreading lazy, manipulative propaganda bullshit like this. TL;DR: The full quote states that Planned Parenthood wanted to hire Black doctors in order to make their Black patients feel safer and respected. It also states that Planned Parenthood wanted to work with Black ministers, and encourage the ministers to tell others that Planned Parenthood was a safe clinic for Black patients. In other words, she didn’t want this exact lie to start circulating Reblogging not just to spread this out there but so that I have it on hand the next time someone tries to feed me this crap, I can provide them the facts. : "...we want to exterminate the Negro population" -Margaret Sanger americanninjax: cecaeliawitch: krismichelle429: officialclinicescort: thelonelyconservativememe: All of you out there supporting planned parenthood should really remember what the woman who founded them said…. just saying.

Mussolini’s granddaughter Alessandra Mussolini is still active in politics and a member of the senate and of the European Parliament for Central Italy. This is 100% true, Europe has a long history with both far left and far right politics, but the far right was still for the most part not that popular except in isolated incidents like in Ukraine or Golden Dawn in Greece, but I make the claim that the far right is making a pretty effective and large comeback because neoliberal austerity measures and other economic factors have hurt many European countries. Since the left in these countries has been ineffective in addressing the grievances of the people or flat out infiltrated or thwarted by the state. The populist right was emotionally appealing in a time of economic need (much like the Nazis were in Germany who scapegoated Jewish people) and has thus surged by blaming refugees, immigration, etc. The left would have been able to counter the right in many of these countries without using economic scapegoating but as I said many were prevented or attacked. So although the presence of the far right has never left Europe I do think there are reasons to believe it’s on the rise just like in the United States. In Austria the Greens BARELY beat the far right wing party and Poland is a good example of the far right taking over as well. Oh yes, absolutely.

Meirl: Rally driver admits he has no idea what co-driver is talking about Top British rally driver, Mark Fischer, today found himself at the centre of a storm of controversy after confessing that he had absolutely no idea what his long- term co-driver, Gethyn Davis, was talking about during races It had been assumed that co-drivers were reading pace notes', a series of instructions describing how to negotiate the road layout ahead, but Fischer daims the notes are 'total nonsense' and that he has simply been humouring his co- driver all these years. It's just gibberish, he said. "But the regulations say that there must be two people in the car at all times during the race, and Gethyn was a good mate so l always just took him along for the ride. Davis is reported to be furious at Fischer's statement and maintains that they were equal partners in the team, but Fisher has been quick to dismiss this. Oh, come on,' he said. ‘l mean, ,50 5-left and stop 2-right half minus braking into K-right 90 maybe and absolute crest 500. What the hell am I supposed to make of that when I'm flat out over a jump sideways at 90mph?" This is not the first time Fischer has courted controversy over the role of co-drivers. In 2009, after finding himself without a co-driver for the Jyvaskyla Rally in Finland, he kidnapped a homeless man and forcibly strapped him into the passenger seat to ensure that the two-people-in-each-car rule was complied with. The stunt only came to ight when onboard footage taken during the race revealed that rather than reading the pace notes', the Finnish co-driver was in fact screaming the words 'Oh shit! over and over again, occasionally interspersed with other phrases induding, Watch out for that house' and 'Slow down, you mad bastard'.

Really sells that whole underlying theme of republicans acting like vindictive cunts for every percieved slight at the hands of democrats these past eight years. Its a party that now openly celebrates the misfortune of others while simultaneously patting themselves on the back for making "progress Like Reply 4-4 hrs Jesus where to start? First, were talking about Obamacare, not the ACA. Secondly, my health insurance is through the ACA, so l'm definitely not the kind of person to look down on others for needing help I'm just saying I'm glad this is finally happening because Obamacare was a faiure from the start. Remember healtcare.gov?!! All of this was the brain child of liberals and they couldn't even get the site to run right, so why should any of us have had faith they could get socialized healthcare right? We didnt and they couldnt. Again, it was a mistake that is finally being fixed. Like Reply 4 hrs Wait, . If You're on Obamacare why the fuck are you celebrating the outcome of this vote? If the Republicans get what they want, you'll lose your insurance Like Reply 4 hrs I'm not on Obamacare. My health insurance is through the ACA (Affordable Care Act), which was what they had to come up with after Obamacare crashed and burned as bad as it did. So I'm gonna be fine Like Reply 4 4 hrs Holy shit.. YOU DENSE Like Reply 6 4 hrs No, seroiusly, are you fucking kidding me? THEYRE THE SAME FUCKING THING! Obamacare is just a stupid name for the ACA that Republicans came up with to make moronic voters like you automaically despise the idea of it just by hearing the name. And it fucking worked I guess. Like Reply 5 4 hrs Jesus Christ, Seriously? All this time, and you never once checked for yourself to see what was up with the whole Obamacare controversy? Didn't once bother asking if relying solely on Glenn fucking Beck for your political commentary might not be the bestuse of all the resources you have at your disposal?

This may be the best thing that happens all year, and we're only 5 days in Like Reply 4 4 hrs haha no shit right?I would have deleted my entire Facebook account by now Its made even better by just how smug he was coming across, as though he was the one who orchestrated the Senate vote, only to flat out crash and burn so badly by exposing his own ignorance memehumor: “I’m not on Obamacare…”

ishipitlikeups: smashingxteacups: doktorgirlfriend: herooflife: motherfickle: thebrokenhunterandhisbrokenangel: worldofdrakan: its-heaven-nowadays: More Macklemore, less Robin Thicke. And yet a huge percentage of Tumblr hates him. Not trying to be confrontational, but could someone please explain to me why this is? Because he is a straight white guy and Tumblr isn’t always right.  Yup. A lot of people like to ignore all the good things he does simply because he is part of the privileged. Never mind that he flat out acknowledges this in Same Love. (“I may not be the same, but that’s not important.”) BLESS YOUR SOULS.  BLESS YOUR FUCKING SOULS.  I ABSOLUTELY CANNOT STAND THAT FUCKING A LOT OF TUMBLR HATES MACKLEMORE.  BECAUSE HONESTLY, HE WAS EVERYTHING THEY WERE COMPLAINING WHITE PEOPLE AREN’T AND NOW THAT THEY GOT A FUCKING ROLEMODEL THEY SUDDENLY COMPLAIN?????? BECAUSE HE’S WHITE?????  Macklemore grew up privileged, yes, but he understands the inequality and the disturbing gap between rich and poor. He has a song called White Privilege:  “Hiphop started off in a block that I’ve never been toTo counter act a struggle that I’ve never even been throughIf I think I understand just because I flow tooThat means I’m not keeping it true, nope.” ALSO "But as I’m blessed with the privilege, they’re still left with the scars” AND HAVE YOU HEARD HIS SONG CLAIMING THE CITY??? “I grew up on Capitol Hill,With two parents and two cars.They had a beautiful marriage, we even had a swing set in our yard.My mom didn’t have a job, because my dad made enough money that we could live comfortably and he could support us.Now, he commute to Tacoma, so we knew we be good.But then I realized everybody looked just like me in my neighborhood.I go to school, which was diverse.But indeed us, I got sandwiches and Capri Suns well my friends ate their free lunch.It’s crazy trying to look back, cause when I was growing upI didn’t understand the fact was there’s something called a social status.And my black friends wanted my financial bracket.And then my city’s divided,From neighborhood to neighborhoodWe’re polarized but we claim we’re progressive.The police shoot in the hood but never once in my residence.As a white person been shot at we’d stopped in a Lexus.And to think that we have claimed that so much has changed” OH GOODNESS ME, HE’S SUCH AN ASSHOLE. HE’S SO PRIVILEGED GOD. HOW ABOUT A WAKE???  "Don’t wanna be that white dude, million man marchin’Fighting for our freedom that my people stoleDon’t wanna make all my white fans uncomfortableBut you don’t even have a fuckin’ song for radioWhy you out here talkin race, tryin’ to save the fuckin’ globeDon’t get involved with the causes in mindWhite privilege, white guilt, at the same damn timeSo we just party like it’s nineteen ninety nineCelebrate the ignorance while these kids keep dying.” Tumblr needs to hop down off it’s high fucking horse and instead of turning against a potential role model and ally to all that they’ve been fucking preaching about JUST BECAUSE HE’S PRIVILEGED AND WHITE, maybe make him an icon because he’s not rapping about disrespecting women. He’s making a small change. But because he grew up with a well structured family environment and he was able to afford everything he desired, he’s suddenly the enemy.  Macklemore hate is proof that Tumblr’s brand of militant social justice is just made up of a bunch of people with either a victimization fetish and/or a hateful, angry heart seeking acceptable targets, and they then proceed to poison the people that really just want to do good, ultimately mangling a good cause beyond recognition. And 99% of people who complain about the first lyric of “Same Love” have never actually listened beyond that. Somebody tells them “The song starts with ‘when i was in the third grade i thought that i was gay’” and they start clutching their pearls because surely the whole song is just some straight dude making lgbtqa rights all about him and how he thinks because he thought he was gay when he was eight he knows all about it. And maybe it’s not the best way to word the beginning of the song, BUT IF YOU ACTUALLY LISTEN OR READ BEYOND THAT it turns out it’s a segue into talking about ridiculous stereotypes and preconceived ideas about sexuality and questioning why someone would think it was a bad idea to be gay in the first place. And then it goes on to discuss the homophobia inherent in the music genre he’s a part of and calling his peers out on slurs and derogatory language and hypocrisy in religion, and it beautifully features Mary fucking Lambert, and goddammit I had trouble driving home when I first heard it in the car because I was fucking crying. Macklemore is a privileged individual who consistently and vocally acknowledges his privileges and strives to use it to do legitimate good, which is everything Tumblr claims it wants, but as soon as he starts, they scream for him to shut up. Because their need to rage and scream and hate and wallow in willful ignorance is more important to them than seeing actual change take place anywhere in the world. so glad i came across this post. you have to remember that tumblr :so called “activists” like to comment on anything that seems potentially bad, even if that means over-shadowing great points and progress that a lot of people, both gay and straight have wished for.

He has a song called White Privilege:  “Hiphop started off in a block that I’ve never been toTo counter act a struggle that I’ve never even been throughIf I think I understand just because I flow tooThat means I’m not keeping it true, nope.” ALSO "But as I’m blessed with the privilege, they’re still left with the scars” AND HAVE YOU HEARD HIS SONG CLAIMING THE CITY??? “I grew up on Capitol Hill,With two parents and two cars.They had a beautiful marriage, we even had a swing set in our yard.My mom didn’t have a job, because my dad made enough money that we could live comfortably and he could support us.Now, he commute to Tacoma, so we knew we be good.But then I realized everybody looked just like me in my neighborhood.I go to school, which was diverse.But indeed us, I got sandwiches and Capri Suns well my friends ate their free lunch.It’s crazy trying to look back, cause when I was growing upI didn’t understand the fact was there’s something called a social status.And my black friends wanted my financial bracket.And then my city’s divided,From neighborhood to neighborhoodWe’re polarized but we claim we’re progressive.The police shoot in the hood but never once in my residence.As a white person been shot at we’d stopped in a Lexus.And to think that we have claimed that so much has changed” OH GOODNESS ME, HE’S SUCH AN ASSHOLE. HE’S SO PRIVILEGED GOD. HOW ABOUT A WAKE???  "Don’t wanna be that white dude, million man marchin’Fighting for our freedom that my people stoleDon’t wanna make all my white fans uncomfortableBut you don’t even have a fuckin’ song for radioWhy you out here talkin race, tryin’ to save the fuckin’ globeDon’t get involved with the causes in mindWhite privilege, white guilt, at the same damn timeSo we just party like it’s nineteen ninety nineCelebrate the ignorance while these kids keep dying.” Tumblr needs to hop down off it’s high fucking horse and instead of turning against a potential role model and ally to all that they’ve been fucking preaching about JUST BECAUSE HE’S PRIVILEGED AND WHITE, maybe make him an icon because he’s not rapping about disrespecting women. He’s making a small change. But because he grew up with a well structured family environment and he was able to afford everything he desired, he’s suddenly the enemy.  Macklemore hate is proof that Tumblr’s brand of militant social justice is just made up of a bunch of people with either a victimization fetish and/or a hateful, angry heart seeking acceptable targets, and they then proceed to poison the people that really just want to do good, ultimately mangling a good cause beyond recognition. And 99% of people who complain about the first lyric of “Same Love” have never actually listened beyond that. Somebody tells them “The song starts with ‘when i was in the third grade i thought that i was gay’” and they start clutching their pearls because surely the whole song is just some straight dude making lgbtqa rights all about him and how he thinks because he thought he was gay when he was eight he knows all about it. And maybe it’s not the best way to word the beginning of the song, BUT IF YOU ACTUALLY LISTEN OR READ BEYOND THAT it turns out it’s a segue into talking about ridiculous stereotypes and preconceived ideas about sexuality and questioning why someone would think it was a bad idea to be gay in the first place. And then it goes on to discuss the homophobia inherent in the music genre he’s a part of and calling his peers out on slurs and derogatory language and hypocrisy in religion, and it beautifully features Mary fucking Lambert, and goddammit I had trouble driving home when I first heard it in the car because I was fucking crying. Macklemore is a privileged individual who consistently and vocally acknowledges his privileges and strives to use it to do legitimate good, which is everything Tumblr claims it wants, but as soon as he starts, they scream for him to shut up. Because their need to rage and scream and hate and wallow in willful ignorance is more important to them than seeing actual change take place anywhere in the world. so glad i came across this post. you have to remember that tumblr :so called “activists” like to comment on anything that seems potentially bad, even if that means over-shadowing great points and progress that a lot of people, both gay and straight have wished for. God bless.
