Do you ever get like super vulnerable late at night that you just want to spill your heart out and say how you feel because you’ve been holding it in for so long and you just need some ventilation and there’s just something about two in the morning that makes me lose my filter and say the things I would never have the guts to say when the sun is up.

I really hate not posting things, so I posted this??? Anwyays, this comic will be printed in As You Were #3 curated by Mitch Clem! You’d better check it out because it’s awesome! You can find a recent kind of rudimentary page for As You Were here so yeah check it out! I’ll make a post when this issue comes out as well. But these are great and have lots of cool folks involved so you should check ‘em out and yep

I’ll admit when I first wrote this I was really worried it was too similar to a lot of comics I’ve found on tumblr, but then also it’s one of those things that happens to so many people so aaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

and in that moment, the entire movie theater burst into tears

i think this was the moment that made most of us despise umbridge more than voldemort

most of us?! don’t you mean ALL of us?? I don’t think even Voldemort liked this bitch!

No one likes Umbridge.

I heard, one time, a dementor kissed her and IT died

Voldemort committed genocide, but Umbridge dared to be female while she abused her power. 

The point isn’t that Umbridge was worse than Voldemort; it’s that everyone hates her more. And I think it has nothing to do with her being a woman and everything with being the sort of cruel most of us have actually experienced.
I mean, look at Voldemort. He’s basically Wizard Hitler, which is, obviously, an incredibly terrible thing to be. But most people—especially the younger people in Harry Potter’s target audience—have not had their parents murdered by a xenophobic cult leader. Nor have they fought for their lives against giant snakes, been kidnapped for dark rituals, or watched numerous friends die in front of them. Voldemort’s crimes are numerous, but they’re distant and fantastical, like hearing about a serial killer on the news.
But they have had that one teacher who inflicts extra punishments just because they don’t like you. They’ve complained to parents and authorities only to be ignored. They’ve sat through pointless classes and been silenced when they criticize. Umbridge is that teacher we all hated because she made our lives miserable and we were powerless to stop her. And as we grow out of school, there are still people in positions of power who act like her. The manager who denies your schedule requests and penalizes you for invented infractions. That customer who complains to corporate because their scam didn’t work, and the corporate decision to listen to their story. Cops performing illegal searches because they know you don’t have any proof.
Yes, torturing and killing numerous people is worse than terrorizing a handful of schoolchildren, but Voldemort is the bad guy in a fairy tale. Umbridge is personal.

*drops the mic*

Voldemort is the villain we never hope to face.
Umbridge is the villain we face every day.

thank you all-four-cheekbones some people on this website need to realise not everything is a matter of sexism or gender discrimination omg

Does nobody remember when Snape used his power as a professor to humiliate and taunt Harry? Or to favor his own house? Does nobody remember how NEVILLE LONGBOTTOM’s parents were tortured by people who followed Voldemort, the “fairy-tale villain,” into an unrecognizable mental state, and yet his biggest fear was not them, BUT STILL SNAPE?
don’t even talk to me

The cause of racism is often fear of the unknown - lack of knowledge about other cultures. Travel, explore and learn - open your mind.

I will ALWAYS, ALWAYS, reblog this every time it comes up on my blog. This is the BEST statement, I’ve ever seen. 

I really love this. So many are dead-set on the view that people cannot better themselves but that simply isn’t true. Everybody deserves a second chance and everybody has the ability to better themselves. 

this cartoon is shit. this ‘lesson’ is shit.

people travel all the fucking time and make other people’s experience’s and lives this ‘cool’ interesting different thing 

this post is literal shit and i would say more but just no

Ignoring the post above me, I would like to say that I completely love this comic!! More people should read it.

THIS IS A PUPPY IT’S NOT EVEN A FULL-GROWN DOG AND IT UNDERSTANDS “NO” IT IS NOT EVEN A YEAR OLD AND YOU’RE TELLING ME TEENAGE BOYS AND MEN CAN’T UNDERSTAND THE CONCEPT OF “NO.” THAT IS BULLSHIT.

Somebody wrote about this earlier and I will reiterate it: this is a dumb comparison. First off, it assumes that men are by default rapists. Unless somebody flat tells a man “No” he will just be raping everything and anything in sight.

Rape is not accepted or usual behavior. Rapists do not have the same brain structure as normal people: they know what “No” means but don’t care. Women also rape at a rate of about 3:2 male to female rapists. Thus by the logic exhibited by the OP, women are also too stupid to know what “No” means.

If the dog is not trained, it will eat any food around it. That is what dogs do. Men do not have to be trained to not rape, and rapists don’t care.

Please stop with this equivalency.

fucking hell, i saw this pic earlier without the commentary and thought “huh, surprised there’s no ‘dogs understand no’ comments on this”. Turned out there fucking is. People are so damn stupid I can’t even.

This is absolutely insane. I cannot believe that this is the case.
