20-something Southern California native who enjoys chillin on the Interwebs. I try my best to be a friendly person, so feel free to message me about anything and everything.
Muggleborns gifting their pureblood friends crocs as a joke, and telling them it’s “the highest quality of shoes muggles can make”. Purebloods wearing crocs when they go out into the muggle world, smugly thinking that people are staring because they admire the style and fashion. Lily Evans doing this to James Potter. Harry and Hermione doing this to Ron.
IMAGINE RON SHOWING UP TO MEET HERMIONE’S PARENTS AND HE’S WEARING FUCKING LIME GREEN CROCS
My house is strange. There’s me, i’m bisexual, and I live with my gay brother and my asexual fiance.
My brother and I have the same taste in boys, but i’m really the only one who likes girls, and my fiance is generally just really excited about dragons.
Dude I want this sitcom
is generally just really excited about dragons
There needs to be a name for this because I swear it’s endemic.
I like referring to it as the White Trojan Horse trope. One white character, or the white characters that get the most spotlight but are the blandest and are surrounded by PoC who way more interesting but are regulated to sideline status. See the Office, Orange Is The New Black, New Girl, Glee, True Blood, etc
The worst part of outfitting our police officers as soldiers has been psychological. Give a man access to drones, tanks, and body armor, and he’ll reasonably think that his job isn’t simply to maintain peace, but to eradicate danger. Instead of protecting and serving, police are searching and destroying.
If officers are soldiers, it follows that the neighborhoods they patrol are battlefields. And if they’re working battlefields, it follows that the population is the enemy. And because of correlations, rooted in historical injustice, between crime and income and income and race, the enemy population will consist largely of people of color, and especially of black men. Throughout the country, police officers are capturing, imprisoning, and killing black males at a ridiculous clip, waging a very literal war on people like Michael Brown.
After getting a Hogwarts letter, muggleborn children get more and more frustrated as the summer goes on and they still can’t find any information about the school when they google Hogwarts or Dumbledore.
