goddessofliteratureandsarcasm said: Hey, so there's this christmas Remus/Tonks fic. It's set around the trio's fifth year, but all I can remember is that Remus gave Tonks a green umbrella (I think?!) and decorated it with baubles between Order assignments. Then Ginny and Hermione found a way to magic the decorations to make them do stuff, and they were all about what Remus liked about Tonks. Like one was her favorite bird and one was a bunch of pics of her in disguise. Help please?
Sorry I have no clue what fic this is! Good luck finding it.
the thing with this dinner with all the dartmouth frat boys is that it just motivated me to work harder. I’m now certain that I need to publish my piece on my not-sexual-assault sexual assaults. I need to be angrier and louder. I need to change where I put my energy and my money further. I need to read more and and listen more and speak up more. I need to become more comfortable saying “going back to that earlier comment” when it takes me so long to realize a comment was fucked up instead of using the excuses of time and the flow of the conversation not to call it out.
also it’s made me realize what fucking amazing goddesses your average straight women are. like… how do you handle straight men like that??? all the time??? you are incredible! (and political lesbianism is always here if you want it.)
This is the most uncomfortable thing.
omfg H G Wells or whatever the fuck his name is a piece of shit. don lemon is a piece of shit. Sierra Mannie is a saint.
like omg Black women are so empowering! Dreamgirls! Beyonce! SHUT THE FUCK UP WITH YOUR FETISHIZING. BLACK WOMEN DO NOT EXIST TO EMPOWER YOU. UUUUUGGGGGGGHHHHHHH
and then he has Paris is Burning in his mouth as if he has any right to that when Paris is Burning was about BLACK PEOPLE.
white gays need to stop forever
I just had dinner with a bunch of white Dartmouth frat boys (including my brother whom I love dearly)- all of whom have finance internships this summer. They were all celebrating this white gay boy from my brother’s high school who commented on the article about how the article was wrong or whatever.
like if obviously racist straight white rich dartmouth frat boys are the ones who are in support of your opinion it’s so fucked up. white gay boys seriously stop trying to aim for their approval. do not align yourself with them. you will always be second tier no matter how hard you try.
What they think they sound like:
“I’m so rational. The truth is somewhere in the middle, they’re both wrong. I’m so nuanced and enlightened with my views.”
What they actually sound like:
“History and context are things that do not exist to me. In whatever dimension I exist in, I believe that there is an equivalence between an advanced occupying army that is notorious for war crimes, and an occupied brutalized population.”
if you protect or befriend or stay friends with abusers, trust that i will not trust you. i will be wary of you and i will probably dislike you and if you are aware of the things the abuser has done and yet you remain in their social circle, i will not allow you in my life. sick and fucking tired…
