so next time you think you can distract
                 yourself
from your insecurities by victimizing a girl,
               THINK AGAIN
             she may be ME and

            I FIGHT LIKE A GIRL.

You write a novel.

Everyone loves the novel.

Someone makes a movie based off your novel.

Your favorite actor is cast in the movie based on your novel.

You become best friends with said actor.

It can’t happen if you don’t sit your ass down and write your novel.

I love how this person just knows we fantasize about this

why you gotta drag me like this

how did jk manage to write ootp and not come to the conclusion that the only career w any true meaning for harry james potter was as a goddamn professor at hogwarts like how do u write the da scenes and say “nah he’d want to be a wizard cop”

#just let him dress in warm sweaters and have tea with neville in the staff room and help first years #harry james potter as hogwarts longest serving defense against the dark arts teacher fucking fight me (@batcii)

#but it would be so perfect??? #bc it would help normalize his life so much #like there would just be this generation of kids who are like #‘ugh who cares that he killed the dark lord he gAVE US HOMEWORK OVER BREAK’ #like the beginning of every year there would be the new first years who would freak out a little #but then it would calm down #and most of the students would literally forget #until like clockwork the fifth years would have their history of magic class on the second war #and they’d all show up to DADA looking a little awestruck and everyone would be extra quiet #and harry would give this kind of annoyed sigh—except it’s fake bc he TOTALLY knew this was coming #bc binns is a bro and he totally gives him a heads up every year #and harry wouldn’t have any lesson plans for the day and instead he would just sit at the front of the room and answer everyone’s questions #but otherwise everyone would just be like ‘professor potter!! i can’t get my patronus to work! help me!’ #and like they’d go home at the end of the year or for break and their parents—who ARE still starstruck by harry james potter #would pester their kids with questions#and the kids would just be like ‘merlin i don’t know?? potter’s such a huge dork you should hear him talk about proper wand movements’ #but they would all love him #and he would feel safe and normal and utterly accepted #AND I NEED THIS IN MY LIFE (via @cinematicnomad)

Not to mention it would be an ultimate Fuck You to Voldemort, who put a curse on the teaching position in the first place.

Like, Jo, I don’t want to tell you how to do your job, but COME ON

I already queued this but also, you do this, but still have Ginny become a famous Quidditch player. Imagine the first time Harry gets called “Ginny’s husband” before “the boy who lived” or “the chosen one.” Imagine how fucking pleased he’d be.

Imagine the first time a student comes up to him looking starry-eyed and Harry’s thinking “Oh no” because he doesn’t want to talk about Voldemort or the war but instead this little eleven year old is like “ARE YOU REALLY MARRIED TO WEASLEY FROM THE HOLLYHEAD HARPIES???!?? WHAT’S SHE LIKE?” and he’s like “oh thank god” because he could talk about Ginny all day. 

Yes. Good.

so if there’s one single trope i’m always down to fight it’s the animal bride (folklore motif 402??) which a lot of you are probably familiar with as the selkie - the fisherman either falls in love, steals her skin to trap her on land/gain power over her, or they fall in love and THEN he steals her skin to keep her from leaving, and either way she spends a lot of time gazing sadly out to sea and then she or her child finds the skin and never returns again.
and that’s awful on a whole lot of levels - it’s not love, it’s control.

BUT. but the thing is. you how selkies/seal women was a pretty common variation of this? another really popular one was swans.

i just want you to think about that for a moment. swans. like…I get it, they’re pretty, graceful birds, certainly it’s easy to imagine them magically becoming pretty graceful ladies? but have you ever fought a swan. swans are awful. swans are the devil’s geese. imagine seeing a pretty magic lady and being absolutely enchanted by her, and stealing her magic feather cloak, and then you go up and say ‘hey i’m in love with you, let me make you my queen, it will be great, we’ll be so happy’ and she just looks at you for a moment and…

you know i was going to say maybe she just shouts for her sisters and suddenly you’re realizing you’ve made a terrible terrible mistake bc you’re surrounded by big fucking birds who are all hissing. but honestly if this swan lady is as aggressively down to brawl as any other generally unhappy swan, then she’d straight up fuck you up on her own. she’d just deck you roundhouse, honestly. you don’t fuck with swans. why does this trope exist

okay but consider this: a woman walks to the park every day and feeds the swans and watches them paddle gracefully around the lake, sighing to see how beautifully they swim. 

finally one day, a swan comes up to her and says ‘why don’t you come and swim with us? you always sigh so wistfully to see us on the water, and you would be most welcome to join our company, for you have always been a true friend to our kind’

and the woman says, ‘i can’t swim’

and the swan says, ‘we’ll teach you’

and the woman says, ‘literally i can’t swim, my husband stole my sealskin and should i venture into deep water i would surely drown’ 

and the swan says ‘your husband fucking WHAT’

the next morning the woman’s front yard looks like this.

and neither the woman nor her husband are ever heard from again, though for very different reasons. 

OH MY GOD.

HETERONORMATIVITY HAS LEAD ME TO VIEW MR. BRIGHTSIDE THE WRONG WAY FOR 12 YEARS OF MY LIFE, BUT NOW I AM WOKE AND UNDERSTAND THAT MR. BRIGHTSIDE IS THE ICONIC BISEXUAL ANTHEM WE’VE BEEN TRAGICALLY UNAWARE OF

to elaborate: our good friend Mr Brightside never gives us the specifics of whether he is jealous of the the man (who’s chest is being touched, now), the woman (who is taking of her dress, now), or both. Therefore we can draw no proper conclusion to our protagonist’s sexuality, and this is a revelation the entire world needs to know about.

There is an entire possibility Mr. Brightside isn’t straight, tell your friends.

the truth was right in front of our eyes this whole time

EW: There’s a hilarious scene in the film where [Chris Hemsworth’s] interviewing to be your assistant, and it becomes clear that his character is, uh, not very smart.
McCarthy: When we were doing that interview scene, Chris had such a crazy run of improv, it was mind-blowing.
Wiig: It was so specific and kind of odd, which is the best kind of improv. We couldn’t understand where he came up with that.
McCarthy: That scene was so hard to get through.
Wiig: I know. That’s when Kate farted.🚫

I’m SOBBING Kate you fucking mess

I REALLY want to see the blooper reel for this movie. Especially this scene.

pokemoneggs:

high school musical 2s “I dont dance” is a metaphor for homosexuality/bisexuality and here’s why:

  • in the song, dancing (stereotypically associated with women and gay men) represents same-gender attraction and the more “masculine” sport, baseball, represents heterosexuality. Ryan tells chad “I’ll show you that it’s one and the same” - that being gay is as valid as being straight, and that it is nothing to be ashamed of. ryan is clearly proud of being able to dance
  • Ryan encourages chad to “swing like him”, bearing in mind ryan is strongly implied to be gay and the word swing is often used with regards to sexuality, ie “I don’t swing that way”
  • Chad displays a stereotypical masculine bravado, he is clearly trying to impress Ryan, he tells him “I’ve got what it takes… so you better spin that pitch you’re gonna throw me”, while reasserting his definite heterosexuality, he adds “I’ll show you how I swing”
  • Chad also implies that he experiences gay feelings but represses them. When ryan tells him “You’ll never know if you never try”, chad replies “there’s just one thing that stops me every time”. this shows his fear of social rejection and his own internalised homophobia
  • as the song progresses this becomes more obvious, chad goes from saying he “doesn’t” dance to saying he “can’t” even though it is clear that he is actually a good dancer while also being skilled at baseball
  • from this we can guess that chad is bisexual and that ryan is either bisexual or gay, though we can assume his preference lies with men at this point
  • on top of this there is the obvious underlying sexual tension running throughout the song. they switch between confrontational and flirty; there’s a lot of smiling and eyebrow waggling going on, and when they do dance they get all up in each others personal space
  • the song ends with ryan falling on top of chad. in the following scene, they are wearing each other’s clothes

Story Time

oh-that-disney-princess-emily:

singing-not-sleeping-beauty:

I was six the first time I went to disney world. It was also the first time I met my step family in florida. See, my grandfather had three wives in his lifetime, and the third wife was the only one I ever met. She had five kids when they married, and moved to Hawaii from the Phillipines. Now jump forward, my dad’s step siblings have families of their own, including my uncle Jett, who married a native hawaiian woman, and had two beautiful daughters.

Back to that first trip to disney. I was six, my sister was ten, and our smack in the middle of that age difference was my cousin Malia at age eight. She, and her younger sister Bella, both took hula classes, because their mother wanted them to stay close to their roots, despite the distance of having moved to florida. We were all pretty young, but we knew enough that the princesses at disney world were actresses in costume.

“How cool would it be to play a princess at one of these parks?” I had said after a long day in the magic kingdom. “I wanna do that one day.”

“Who would you play?” Bella had asked. 

“I don’t know. Belle maybe. She’s the only one with brown hair other than snow white, and mulan, and I could never play either of them.”

“Yeah, but you don’t really look like Belle either. Your noses are to different.” Malia had cut in, and I shrugged it off, knowing It’d never happen anyway.

“What about you guys? Who would you play?” I asked them, unaware that there was no answer to that.

“We don’t look like any of them either. There are no princesses from where we’re from.” So we all settled on the sad belief that none of us would ever get to be disney princesses.

Years pass, and I decide that one day I would help write a movie for a princess from either the phillipines, or the polynesian islands, so my cousins could become princesses. Because they held on to that dream. It might have been harder for them to let go of it, because they lived so close to disney.

Now it’s 2014, and Malia has just been hired as a dancer, at the polynesian resort at disney. She started as a swing, and in two years worked her way up to a featured dancer. It helped that she was of polynesian decent. 

About a year ago it was announced that disney would be releasing a movie featuring their first polynesian princess, and my cousins & I were all excited, but none of us had high hopes. We all figured they’d make her look more like Rapunzel, the way Anna and Elsa had. 

Fast forward a few months. They have just released the first look at moana.

I text my cousin as soon as I see it.

“Did you see Moana?”

“No, why?” I send her the picture above, and a minute later I get a call. “SHE LOOKS LIKE ME! I LOOK LIKE HER!” Malia is screaming into the phone with unabashed enthusiasm. She couldn’t believe that a disney princess bore such a resemblance to her.

Yesterday, 11/16/16, my cousin began her new job at disney world, and I couldn’t be happier that her dream of ten years had been realized.

This is why representation matters. This is one of many reasons why Moana is so important. 

Congratulations Malia. I can’t wait to come down and say Mahalo

OH MY GOODNESS

ok so.
there’s an office administrator at my work and she has this cute little 2 year old named William. he calls me “Nick so tall”. like that’s my name to him, but he says it like it’s one word. “Nicksotall”. and i love it
so I’ve taken to calling him Will So Lil’ and we get along like a housefire.
i haven’t seen him in like two weeks, but his mom comes in to work today and tells me that recently he’s been telling his own bedtime stories, and he starts them all with once upon a time and everything. cute right? well to me it gets cuter, because he has been telling stories about Batman, Spider-man, and Nicksotall.
and we have these adventures and climb buildings and fight crime together and i have to be honest, it warmed my heart so fucking much it’s ridiculous

tl;dr I’m a superhero to an adorable 2 year old

yessssssss

This is so pure

I feel like nobody ever gives Green Day credit for how brave they are. These guys have guts. They were the only artists at the AMAs who had the courage to all out drag Donald Trump, the President-elect, on national television. Everyone else either danced around the topic or made awkward jokes about it but it was only Green Day who came out, guns blazing and hands in the air, and screamed “NO TRUMP, NO KKK, NO FACIST USA!!”

columbia university’s provost just announced that the school will become a sanctuary campus and provide financial aid for undocumented students !! we need to see more of this !!

This is a great example of what a school should be enforcing if it claims that it is a sanctuary school!!

1. They will not allow ICE on their campus
2. They will not release any records of their students to ICE
3. They will continue/ begin to offer financial aid to undocumented students
4. They made a public announcement declaring that their school is a sanctuary school

If your school does not hit all four of those markers then they are not a sanctuary school and you should keep protesting!! Cal State Los Angeles is a prime example of a school that claims to be a sanctuary school to please their undocumented students but has not released any statements stating that they will protect their students from ICE by enforcing those four points above.

Make our schools safe from ICE. Undocumented students should not feel forced to stay home and not get an education out of fear that they may be apprehended and deported!

I have done extensive research to try and find out why anyone would support these things. And why someone would go as far as to spend millions of dollars so people don’t go jail for beating their pet dogs, and the closest answers I have gotten from interviews is that Forrest Lucas seems obsessed with the idea, “That a man has a god given right to do with, what he pleases to his property.”

We’re in for a wild ass ride

And yet there people saying to worry about Trump, this insane

Good news is, many of those require senate confirmation! So, CALL YOUR SENATORS. Tell them that you oppose these appointments, and give a few examples. Don’t list every person and reason posted here, they’ll stop listening. Instead pick 2 or 3 people and some of the biggest problems. After that, say something to the effect of “there are other appointees that display similarly shocking disregard for race relations/ LGBTQ folks/ women/ etc. And I want to make my distrust and apprehension of those qualities known to my senator.” Don’t forget, you have 2 senators, everyone does, it’s a statewide office.

reblogging for the last point!

I love when brands throw shade and I love it even more that it’s Kylie Jenner

OKAY, BUT THEY SHADED HER LACK OF TALENT AND HER SHITTY, PROBLEMATIC FIT TEA PROMOTIONS ALL IN ONE TWEET. I’M GAGGING. 

LMAO

Does Kylie not have a PR team? Did no one tell her that bragging about how she doesn’t need a job would get her dragged? She seriously stepped right into this one…

Shout out to Good&Co for not taking her shit. Hopefully this gets them some good press.

EDIT: Just so you guys know, Good&Co is actually a really great app/company. They helped me figure out my interests and get placed with a job that I actually like. They also help with online, work from home jobs. I’d recommend it to anyone who’s in between jobs or just wants some direction. Click here to check it out!

^^^I second this opinion, Good & Co is great!

I love the fact that Kylie’s drag is indirectly helping people in need. It warms my petty heart.
