I firmly believe that the reason many Slytherins were easily convinced to join Voldemort was because they were treated like shit by the rest of the houses while they were growing up. Imagine spending seven of the most important years of your life being told that you were part of the bad house and therefore bad yourself. Everyone boos your quidditch team. All the houses will hang out with everyone except you. You grow up being hated by your fellow students and many of your teachers.

Now imagine someone comes along and tells you that you’re not worthless and bad. That you’re invited to join a family where you will right the wrongs committed against you. You have the opportunity to be wanted and powerful instead of a hated outcast. Several of your former classmates are telling you how great it is. How you’re welcomed and needed. These are the kids you grew up with. The classmates who went through all the same things you did. Being a Death Eater sounds pretty good now.

I’ve been waiting for a post like this.

THIS.

BLESS THIS POST

oppressed slytherins 

gryffindor privilege

are we seriously doing this

are we ignoring that the DEs are a racist genocidal terrorist group

are we ignoring that, while unfair, the hatred of Slytherin was only after the first Voldemort war, and evidence suggests that they were mostly Slytherins — probably because Tom Riddle recruited out of his own house

but also because Slytherin always — only in part, but still in all the house identifying stuff — stood for purity of blood

are we ignoring that this is based off of actual schools who care more about who your parents are than who you are

if you want to talk about how Slytherin =/= DEs, talk about the ones who didn’t join up.  talk about Theodore Nott, whose own father was a Death Eater but wasn’t into that kind of scene.

but jfc “oh no the elite rich kids joining genocidal groups are so oppressed let’s cry for them some more”

let’s not, okay

'But me and my rich friends are so lonely in our school of thousands….'

I think this more than anything is why I relate to Slytherin. I went to an expensive high school as a kid and had friends yet I still found a way to feel persecuted and wronged.

never not reblog Scarlett calling idiots out on their bullshit

image

and the shitty part is that once scarlett called them out on their fucking bullshit, she automatically became coined a bitch. a bitch. for being brave enough to publicly tell them what was so annoying about a still continuing problem for women in media

"You work hard making independent films for fourteen years and you get voted best breasts.” - scarlett johansson

god i feel horrible for her. i feel horrible for every single woman in this world. and it was to the point where she decided to get breast reduction surgery for her to be taken more seriously as an actress. what the hell is wrong with everybody

and i never, ever understood the hate towards anne hathaway. new york times magazine stated “Anne Hathaway practically demands that we love her.” fucking wrong. anne never gave a shit about looking stuck up when she was out there on stage, preaching for gay rights and how wrong it is for men to constantly sexualize and put down women in the media in every single interview where a man asked the bullshit question “what diet plan did you use for your role in les mis, i bet every single girl wants to know”. she knew a backlash would come from for being so strong and forceful with her retortive statements, but they saved the people that mattered.

and another point. kristen stewart. why in the hell do people hate kristen stewart as a person. women today are expected to act pretty. nice. be respectful 24/7, never argue back, smile pretty, be a lady. don’t make rash, argumentative statements, because if you do, you are not a lady. this is a message our society tries to suffocate women with. kristen stewart will not smile for you, or act like a fuckin lady for you, because that is not her character

yet people hate her because she decides to be herself. “god kristen, you gotta smile some more, talk more ladylike”

what in the fuck for? absolutely nobody knows kristen stewart’s personality. she’s a private person. but just because she refuses to lie through her teeth to seem like a respectable, golden lady of hollywood, she’s considered a bitch. “do this or that because if you don’t you aint a lady” god fuckin damn all of you

all the wrong actresses are getting the hate. you know what really pisses me off are the actresses that just drift on by, answering all an interviewer’s fuckin condescending questions because they’re too afraid to say anything else. just walk nice, smile and say all of those stupid, feminine things you can say in order to get the most fans. at least that’s what their publicists are making them do

its really early in the morning and i cant think straight so if my rant seems messy im sorry 

I agree with everything except for the last part. I don’t blame the female actors who do buy/give into the dumb questions. Patriarchy still affects them like it does everyone else, which means they’ve either internalized the sexism, or they feel that calling it out will bring too great of a risk to their career. And I can’t blame women for trying to hold on to their careers.

Also, women like Scarlett and Kristen are A)white and B)well-established in the entertainment industry, so they have a level of privilege that allows them to be snarky or to talk back when people say dumb shit to them or expect them to act a certain way. They might still be labelled as bitchy or whatever, but it’s not going to affect their careers that much.

For the record, I have met Mr Hodgman’s children, and I believe they are both too mature and sensible to say anything like that.

GOT MY BUMPER STICKERS

This is so incredibly ignorant that it’s making my head hurt. When people say, “Guns don’t kill people,” they are not saying, “A gun and bullets can’t be used to kill someone,” and you know it. A gun, by itself, cannot kill someone. It doesn’t matter what side of the the debate you’re on. A gun, by itself, cannot kill someone. The problem has always, always been people. If you put the blame on an inanimate object, you are saying that people don’t need to take responsibility for their actions.

I hate to repeat a tired cliche, but if you outlaw guns, only outlaws will have guns. Or people will find other ways of murdering each other. This shouldn’t even be a political argument, it’s not about our Second Amendment rights; it’s about being able to defend yourself. Let’s say gun control is fully instated, or it’s made illegal to own a gun. One day, you’re walking home, and someone with a gun pulls you into an alley, threatening your life for whatever it is they want. If you point at them and say, “Hey, having that gun is illegal!” do you think they’ll apologize profusely, turn themselves in, and allow you to go on your merry way?

However, if any average person on the street has a gun, do you think muggers and thieves (or even an ill-intentioned average Joe) are going to be more motivated to make a target of someone? Probably not, since there’s a high chance that target will be well armed (like Chicago vs. Houston, if you look at the first article below).

Here’s an article that might be of interest to you. Here’s another one, that provides a little more context.

I’m sorry to turn this into a rant, I don’t do this (very) often. Just read the first paragraph, that’s really all I meant to say.

Someone has completely missed the point.

Is that you, Steve Carlsburg?

BEST COMMENT

Oh yes, because owning a gun is your “duty as an american”, isn’t it?
United States, the greatest gun producer.
"Buy a pink rifle to your daughter, teach kids how guns are awesome and cool. Give guns TO CHILDREN." But when they murder each other, blame video games or Marlin Manson. Not the whole gun propaganda nor the president sending more soldiers to kill muslims.

Buy a car, win a gun! Open a bank account in our bank and win a gun! Buy our guns! Guns are cool! Guns are awesome! Having a gun means power! Owning guns will solve crime!

Cut the fucking bullshit about your fucking guns I’m sick of USA and its freaking guns everywhere and you telling me that all this “gun is for protection we have to have it”.

Educate yourselves.

IT JUST KEEPS HAPPENING

It’s it’s a fact! Cities and states that allow a gun on a person are noticeably lower in murder. Having guns is about protection. No, we are not EVER going to give guns to children. We are not going to tell that that having guns are cool, like it’s a toy. We are going to tell them that it’s a dangerous weapon and can kill somebody, even you, if not handled correctly. We can teach them that they can be used for protection if they’re desperate enough. Wether our not they learn how to use it is the parents choice, not yours. I learned how to use a gun by the time I was 11, and I turned out fine. Tons of other people I know also learned how to use a gun at a young age, but they are crazy maniacs. They are normal people that would only use a gun if needed.

Get this through your thick skull:

GUNS ARE NOT THE PROBLEM. PEOPLE ARE THE PROBLEM.

I AM LAUGHING SO HARD 

I CANT BREATHE. ITS TOO GREAT.

Damn, y’all. Damn.

Good night, Tumblr. Good night.

Now we know that they have Tumblr in Desert Bluffs.
